    Re: A UK Campaign

    Not sure if anyone is actually following this campaign but - how do other GMs deal with player character improvements due to PP spend? My players have recently been awarded some points and have started to upgrade their characters - now I like to roleplay any changes or increase in powers or skills within the game itself. In the previous face-to-face episode Mary roleplayed gaining an alternate identity (the glamour of a younger Mary) and the addition of "affect others" to her insubstantuality. This episode covered the addition of another power gained by Akira and a climax to an issue that has been outstanding since the first episode...

    Warning: there was a lot of hero points gained and used in this session.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    I was wondering, would a registered hero be able to apply to be an anonymous elector?

    In Britain, anonymous registration is available to people meeting certain statutory requirements where, if their name or address were listed on the electoral register, their safety would be at risk.

    I reckon that a registered hero would be considered "at risk".

    Any other person in the same household as a person at risk is also qualified to register as an anonymous elector. Their family for example.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    betterwatchit, Totally agree about right to anonymity - I have always assumed that registration guarantees anonymity UNLESS they break the law in which case their sealed records can be opened by court order... This is my source for why that would work under British law - http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/v_to_z/w...and_anonymity/ in particular sections 74 to 85 of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 subsection 4. "the person in respect of whom the order would be made has reasonable grounds to fear intimidation or harm if they were identified as assisting the investigation."

    As for The Balance - they have finally visited the Library and are forced to deal with an assault by the Green Knight and the hybrid elemental/meta-human called Calypso (who turns out to be the kidnapped Angelique St. Marie from Episode 1 and like Young Sam a mystical hybrid). They also learn about the Scrolls of Ch’Andarra (a tribute to the champions adventure the Coriolis Effect).

    Latest episode at: https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2017/06/1...ing-the-storm/

    A couple of bluebooking sessions are currently ongoing whereby Mary returns to the BASEment to determine how to free Jeeves from his curse and Akira learns more about his ancestry...

    Posting in a few weeks.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    Following the attack on the Library, the members of the Balance explore the Library, discover more about the curse on Jeeves, discover more about their family and have a discussion about shape-changing followed by an After-Dinner Conversation...

    Three new bluebooking sessions listed on the website - go to https://mm3e.wordpress.com/guide-to-episodes/
    and read 'French Lessons', 'A Life Changing Conversation?' and 'Jeeves, the Unseelie Sidhe & an After-Dinner Conversation'
    amd finally 'Intermission revisited.'

    Hope you enjoy.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    Latest face-to-face session (with a continuing homage to the Coriolis Effect) in which the Balance travel to France, have a nice cuppa with Dr Avery and Dementia.

    https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2017/07/0...ce-cup-of-tea/

    Instead of the Black Enchantress the big bad is Lady Dementia - great grand niece of Banshee, assisted by Sam's Black Dragonkin. Cups of tea, hissy fits and the Ghost of Doctor Arcane all make an entrance in this episode - oh and the team meet the French Connection, le Nouveau Chevaliers de Paris...

    Re: A UK Campaign

    With Donna Avery kidnapped last session and the ghost of Doctor Arcane hanging around the BASEment, the Balance have decided they have to take on the Seminarium of Setekh with an out and out attack (or will it be an invasion given they will be illegally attacking them in a foreign country)?

    As the team prepare for an assault against unknown odds, they find they have more allies than they expected... Starring, Naomi Van Helsing, The Black Chapter, Junkpile (piloted by Michaela Angelo) and of course the remaining BASEmates. Still to be revealed - the dwarves go to war...

    Most recent bluebook sessions now online - https://wordpress.com/post/mm3e.wordpress.com/486

    and Akira has a change of heart https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2017/07/2...postman-calls/

    Re: A UK Campaign

    Latest face-to-face episode: The Balance and their allies secretly travel to Carpathia to free Donna and return with several powered prisoners: Donna's Amazons introducing Aura, Outrage, Ash and Amethyst- in the process they meet (and defeat their first vampire, a serpent man, the Baroness, the brainwashed Calypso and Revenant. Oh and they learn how to defeat a extra-dimensional gryphon!

    Re: A UK Campaign

    Couple of bluebook sessions ongoing:

    Aftermath - https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2017/07/2...14a-aftermath/
    To Sleep, Perchance to Dream - https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2017/07/2...ance-to-dream/

    The players having just survived the mid-season finale are about to move up to PL 11 - This boost will be played out soon. Having rescued Donna and her 'Amazons' and seen Jeeves 'cured' of his curse they start to deal with the aftermath (including following an almost grand-niece north looking for family and meeting Hercules) and a sleepy conversation (based on some notes written by Akira's character having forgotten Donna's apparent age) as well as a bit more information about the current members of Avery's Amazons curled up in the lounge.

    Young Sam's version of the adventure aftermath: https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2017/07/3...d-realisation/

    And a foreshadow of things to come: https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2017/07/3...rticular-book/

    One of the advantages of bluebooking is that your players can let you know by their reponses whether or not they truly enjoyed the adventure and are enjoying their characters and supporting NPCs.

    Coming soon, I plan running Time of Vengeance by the amazing Professor Christopher McGlothlin - the twist being that I plan to set this adventure in Israel and the West Bank as the Balance support the Challenger-Wildeman's visit to install Safe-Fusion powered Arc Reactors.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    Joys of the Summer Holidays is that the face-to-face sessions are few and far between so whilst the players update their charactters to Lvl 11 we've been keeping the spirit of the game going with several bluebook episodes - next adventure is still a week away and will consist of a visit to the Island of Gibraltar on the way to Israel...

    Time to introduce the world to the Balance and vice versa and having just returned from Gibraltar and Morocco less than a week ago this seemed a chance to share some of the sights with my players...
