    Re: A UK Campaign

    Episode 3 of the UK Claremont Academy mini-series.

    Firewall and Ashen out themselves as Meta's as several pupils find themselves sent back in time to the Terminus attack on the school nine years before, only to be caught in a 20 minute groundhog day type scenario... Can the past be changed?

    Not an easy concept to pull off with everything resetting after a short period of time but with the PCs and their student entourage changing their actions every time and then including for them to have the ability to actually make a difference.

    I must admit I expected Firewall to actively try and hide 'his' having powers so his players decision to openly come out so early really surprised me.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    Notes from our latest M&M session (Episode 33 – Salvation in a Tin Can) now live at https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/06/0...-in-a-tin-can/

    My take on first contact with my personal version of Champions Mechanon - a robotic Saviour Unit is sent back in time to oversee the birth of robotic civilisation at all costs, unfortunately he runs into Banshee, Akira and Mace from the Balance

    A filler episode as one of my players was unable to join us on the night.

    I'm currently working on two Bluebook sessions - The Claremont Academy session is about the fallout from Ashen and Firewall outing themselves as mutants last episode when they went back in time and in the other Young Sam of the Balance is having a relationship crisis. Notes hopefully complete next week.

    Bluebooking sessions – The player of Young Sam wanted to do a bit of angst-ridden exploration of his characters relationship with Annie.

    https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/06/1...heart-divided/

    This is one of the areas where bluebooking as a campaign add-on comes into its own and the GM and player roleplay a characters personal relationship.

    In the Claremont Academy mini-series, the two players examine the consequences of outing themselves to the other students who time travelled back to the Terminus Invasion of the school and discover that human personalities, even those of racists, can be more complicated than they expected.

    Oh and introducing them to their very own Lois Lane, reporter Zoe who writes for the Claremont Clarion, the school newspaper.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    Balance session minus two players so decided to explore a couple of outstanding themes I'd touched on before - A visit by a Library Researcher to the BASEment results in a visit to the PISCES building known as The Vault. This results in finding out who the Fisher King was and finding the Grail (or at least one of them).

    This was my opportunity to reveal to the players who the progenitor of Akira's lineage was and to look at a re-interpretation of the Grail legends and in particular the Fisher King.The session write up can be found at https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/06/2...-on-the-vault/

    Re: A UK Campaign

    After a couple of weeks away, the team (minus Sam) end up visiting Dakata (my take on Green Ronin's Dakana which accidentally got misnamed and I never corrected). The team find themselves facing an invasion (or is it a rebellion?)

    Re: A UK Campaign

    In a follow up to Into Eden (episode 35) Sam catches up with the others in the African Kingdom of Dakata but loses the Raft to a missile attack on the outskirts of the Country and arrives in time to help fight an invasion by the Paradise in Africa Army, the Red Hyena Cult and leopard men Chimaera as well as 'R' and in the process briefly meet a living Goddess.

    The notes from this week's game can be found at https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/08/0...ldren-of-cain/ and follow directly on from the Into Eden session a couple of weeks before.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    The players had a bluebook session whilst still in Dakata and learn a lot of the country's secrets including the origin of the Goddess and how vampires came to be, have the Crate upgraded and make new friends. See https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/08/1...36a-fragments/

    Then as requested, they agree to take Mamma Massai to the Kenyan city of Konza to stand trial as a terrorist and get mixed up with sentient gorillas searching for a kidnapped cub. They rescue the infant, help the adult gorillas escape without starting a war and try and figure out what is happening with Akira.

    To my surprise the players do not end up fighting with the gorillas but do knock down two rhinos... The episode is detailed in https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/08/1...y-of-the-apes/

    Every superhero game has to have an encounter with intelligent apes, this was the Balances.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    With half the players unavailable we end up back in Claremont Academy for an adventure staring Firewall, Ashen, Young Sam and Akira (who is suffering a bit of a crisis).

    Inspired by the Young Justice Episode “Misplaced”. The two players also have characters in my adult Balance game so their adult characters visited Claremont Academy for a school Assembly and answer students questions (yes I was that cruel and since one of the adult PCs is slowly going insane it was interesting) then their teen characters tested their combat skills against each others adult PC before heading to the nearby town of St. Mary Mede only to see all the adults vanish... The clue is in the episode title - Never the Twain Shall Meet as the episode risks creating a temporal paradox to allow the Tattered Man to cross over.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    Back in the UK the Balance try to come to terms with Akira's strange behaviour after returning from Claremont Academy and his subsequent disappearance - in a couple of bluebooking sessions. In Duplicitous Duplicity (https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/08/2...ous-duplicity/) Akira tries to use a mystical double to escape the curse only to have his duplicate body stolen by a mysterious creature leaving him stranded in the astral plane and in You Yig while I Zag (https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/09/0...g-while-i-zag/) Mary revisits the library seeking answers about the creature known as Yig and makes some plans.

    Tonight the players were summoned to the Library which is under attack apparently from Akira and two creatures known as Gog and Magog - notes to follow soon.

    The rest of The Balance are summoned to the Library only to find it under attack - from Akira! Despite the confusion the session ended with the three of them trapped in the Faerie Realms with Akira's doppelgänger facing a umbral Kraken.

    Visit https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/09/1...r-happened-to/ for the session write up.
