    There is also a new bluebooking session set several weeks later about a possible romance between Chris' and a girl at the school (only issue is that he's secretly transgender). A case of setting his player up to explore teenage romance and potential tragedy... Using bluebooking allows the players and I the opportunity to explore the joys and woes of teenage life without dominating a face-to-face-to-Skype session.

    A Journey through the Faerie Realms

    Following on from the last episode (over a month ago), Akira recovered and fell asleep in a recent bluebook session (https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/09/2...-the-departed/ )

    Sam, Mace and Banshee with the now revealed Og find themselves undertaking an odyssey through the Faerie Realm. The four of them face an Umbral Kraken, rescue a couple of Dryads and save the race, meet up with the dreaming Akira, make their way to the Goblin Market at Skyfall, enter a Duello Arcane before meeting the Three Fates and discovering their presence is part of a prophecy.

    Part 1 of the Faerie Realm Odyssey can be found at https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/11/1...ansas-anymore/ Hopefully the next session will not take so long before it sees the light.

    A Journey through the Faerie Realms

    Just written up the notes from this week's team adventure.

    Having received a cryptic prophesy from the Three Fates last session, the Balance are still trapped in the Faerie Realm

    They save the life of Queen Titania's Court Detective Puck and agree to investigate the fate of the Summer knight which leads them deep into the Autumnlands.

    There they find the realm is being invaded by an old enemy, rescue sprites and an Irish mage.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    In our Claremont Academy Game - this happens in the same weekend as Firewall and Cadet must discover why Frankenstein, Dracula, their assorted brides and minions as well as a horde of zombie teachers are roaming the school grounds.

    https://claremontacademy.wordpress.c...-in-the-night/

    Gus' is called to the Carpathian Consulate to meet with his dead fathers lawyer and instead is offered a school transfer, meets the hereditary ruler of the Country as well as his mother (one of three apparently) and experiences teen angst over everything... A Bluebooking session for the player who was unable to attend the face-to-face session above.

    Re: Bluebooking in a UK Campaign

    A week without an actual game but we made up for that by bluebooking.

    At Claremont Academy Ashen hadn't been around for the horror of "Things that go Bump in the Night" - in a previous post we learn about his origins while attending the Carpathian Consulate.
    In https://claremontacademy.wordpress.c...housand-steps/ Gustav decides he will stage a rebellion back home and expects the school to support him. Things don't go quite as he expects in a meeting with the head teacher Mr Summers and Naomi Van Helsing.

    Back with the Balance, the majority of the team are still trapped in the Faerie Realms. In a follow-up to "Something Wicked this Way Comes, The Princess of Skyfall wonders about the strange mortals passing through in their strange skyships in https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/12/0...-manners-born/

    The research Akira did on the Faeries is revealed in https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/12/0...faeirie-realm/
    and back on Earth the Balance 2.0 receive another of lockers Vlog posts in https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/12/0...wo-steps-back/

    Re: A UK Campaign (Claremont Academy)

    Another full session cancelled due to 'life' so back to Claremont Academy and a visit to the theatre to see Tabitha Tobias aka Taboo and her magic show and then backstage to visit with the star. Only for their meeting to be interrupted by a couple of kidnappers in power armour forcing Firewall and Ashen to give chase.

    Close Encounter of the Third Kind

    “Ladies and gentleman, I believe that there are three kinds of magic in this world; the first is real, consisting of mystical manipulation of reality, the second type is staged illusion, trickery and misdirection, the third is Arthur C. Clarke magic – technology so advanced it seems mystical. For the next few hours, I intend to show that all three can seem indistinguishable from each other and I challenge you to prove which is which. Where does stage magic and technological trickery end and real magic begin? I will let you decide. Hope you enjoy the show!”

    Tabitha Tobias (Taboo) at the start of her Performance at the Wessex Jubilee Concert Hall

    Re: A UK Campaign

    The holidays have again made getting the 'gang' together for an actual face-to-face-to-Skype session over the Christmas period 'difficult'.

    So, with the Balance still trapped in the Faerie Realms, there have again been a series of bluebooking posts. Some are foreshadowing possible future events or looking at previous as yet unexplored adventure hooks and unresolved mysteries.

    There are the outstanding mysteries of the teleporting alien corgi (first mentioned in Bluebook Session 20a: Information, Conversations, Visitations and Merchandising), Adam's ghost in the BASEment, the connection with the new hero Locker and the mystery of the New Knights of the Round Table.

    More details of the latest post can be found at https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/12/2...d-transitions/

    You can read all five of the holiday bluebook sessions (so far) at the bottom of https://mm3e.wordpress.com/guide-to-episodes/ as well as all of the team's previous adventures.

    Now we just need to get everyone together to resolve the issue of why the Terminus is present in the Faerie Realm as well as trying to stop a war between the Courts of Summer and Winter.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    They're back...

    The balance are still in the Faerie Realm, fleeing the Wylde Hunt, stopping a war between the Summer and Winter realms and an assassination attempt on Queen Titania by the Terminus before they realise that the hold the answer to restoring the Summer Kingdom to its former glory.
    They finally leave the Faerie Realm only to find themselves in a darkened street in an unrecognised city.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    Details of our latest face-to-face session.
    With a visiting player and a key member of The Balance unable to attend, we revisited Claremont Academy. Winter had set in at the school and mock exams are the order of the day at school so what better time to have a break and visit the fair?

    The students visit the Fair as Outrage, Cadet, Firewall and Ashen ride the rides, get into a dance off against a rival school and encounter the hypnotic influence of the mysterious Browser.

    Introducing The Pryde Institute for Troubled Meta-Teens (nicknamed the PITT) and some of its students - Apex, Scythe, Ms Kitty, Winter, Scorpion, Hi-Def and DoS.
