    Cool Re: A UK Campaign

    A TEEN UK Campaign

    Due to real life interfering, the whole of March proved unsuitable for a face-to-face session hence the extra bluebooking. In the end I decided I would offer a couple of the players the opportunity to play in a separate campaign and we elected to revisit Claremont Academy as a setting. We're not sure yet whether we will record each episode in the same way I do for the Balance sessions.

    The players are still to submit their characters yet and I haven't decided on an opening adventure. Any recommendations welcomed. First session will be this Wednesday (28th March).

    In the meantime I've launched a sister site to the Balance website (located at https://mm3e.wordpress.com) at https://claremontacademy.wordpress.com/ where the school, staff and some of the more prominent pupils are listed as well as my altered version of the school history (to account for the setting being transferred to the UK.

    In this universe the Academy has over 550 pupils, only 30 or so are meta-humans so the whole superhero-in-training is a heavily guarded secret, through there are pupils (and staff) who are already publicly outed or unable to maintain a secret Identity. It is located in the Balance Universe so whatever happens with the adults will likely impact on the teens at the school.

    Very enjoyable though writing up the notes took forever.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    After a month's absence from our main M&M3e game, we returned to the Balance, only for half the group to be unable to attend at the last minute.

    In the end I ran with a different adventure than the original one planned for that night (too lethal for such a reduced team) starting with a couple of previous assassination attempts on the team by mages off-scene leading to the attack documented during this adventure. It was put together on the fly but went quite well considering.

    It also allowed me to access one of my favourite superhero books (admittedly for champions) - Mystic Masters and pull in Jarth, or at least my take on the centipede-like mystical master and a psionic alien the Aboleth as its ally.

    Episode 29 – Memories are made of this can be found at https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/04/0...e-made-of-this

    Let me know what think.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    Latest saga in our ongoing campaign:

    With all of the team present, the Balance agree to help guard a prison convoy carrying an old enemy only for it to be attacked by supernatural creatures as it passed through Yorkshire. Then they were forced to deal with the Oktoberkynde (my personal take on Vigilance Press's most excellent Octobermen supplement – I have adopted several of their supplements into my campaign world as I am always impressed by just how good they are – though admittedly nothing survives untainted contact with the GM. They say that being inspired to adapt and alter someone else’s creation to fit your own background is the sincerest form of flattery.)

    From dealing with swarms of fairies, animated trees and vines, a troll, the Pied Piper and his ‘mischief’ of rats, they progressed to having to deal with a doppelganger of Young Sam who turned out to be a floating skull, and then the rest of the Oktoberkynde; Spring-heeled Jack, Hexenwulf, Sister Sanguine and a mysterious libriomancer hiding in the forest.

    Political repercussions and a video of Young Sam attacking the convoy uploaded to YouTube followed...

    The latest episode, "It's Grimm up North" can be found at https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/04/1...rimm-up-north/

    Hope you enjoy. Next session will be a return to Claremont Academy as real life again prevents all of the players from meeting until May.

    Re: A UK Campaign - Meta-Teens, UK style.

    Ashen and Firewall have now been at Claremont Academy for almost a week and are starting to settle in as they attend classes, face the school bully, head Down Below for further Special Curriculum training and see a ghost or two before finding themselves once again facing the Rejects...

    Introducing Cadet and Smash...

    Re: A UK Campaign

    In preparation for our next face-to-face session of The Balance when the players will revisit Akiva's hereditary home, I have detailed the mystical mansion of Ffrwd Dylluan.

    Based on the Mobius Mansion detailed in the Champions book ‘The Mystic Masters’ by Allen Varney, Ffrwd Dylluan (Welsh for "The Stream of Owls") also known as “Sanctuary” it is built on the foundations of a medieval castle which originally used to be in Wales but with the borders changed over the centuries is now in England in the Severn Valley near Brichester just across the border in Mercia (an alternate Earth remember). Ffrwd Dylluan is a magical venue which ties into the proposed future 'Fisher King' story line as well as being the Sanctuary of the survivors of the Meta-underground after the future invasion by Terminus.

    The secret of its name is yet to be revealed.

    So far the building has been a regular theme in Akira's bluebooking and is detailed with floorplans. As the upper floors regularly move its a bit hard to chart the upper floors properly. https://mm3e.wordpress.com/the-mansi...ffrwd-dylluan/

    Latest episode of The Balance is now online. As the heroes are abducted, they find themselves trapped inside Ffrwd Dylluan with the mystical assassins of the Oktoberkynde.

    A deal is agreed whereby the Balance find themselves facing the anti-mage team-up of the witch hunter Hexenhammer and his enslaved hound, the Abyss. Will Oktoberkynde keep their word if they win? Will Akira risk eating the mystical sandwich of doom? And how do you deal with mystical creatures capable of regenerating.

    All is revealed in “Through the Looking Glass” - https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/05/0...looking-glass/

    Re: A UK Campaign

    Having two dead bodies shot with crossbow bolts lying on the lawn of one of the team leads to some awkward question from the local Police until the CI-13 Spook Squad step in. The team decide to take some time out rebuilding two orphanages in Sierra Leone whilst Jimmy the Fish tries to rebuild their public reputations.

    Bluebooking session can be found at https://mm3e.wordpress.com/2018/05/0...-problem-like/

    On their return to the UK they investigate 'R' and are called in to help deal with a local street gang armed with alien tech and discover a way to identify people infected with the Terminus control parasites.

    Re: A UK Campaign

    An in-between session of bluebooking dealing with - Adam and Tess using his extractor device, Harry Powers trying to identify those infected by the Control Parasites, Sam giving interviews, Annie trying to trace the prize on their heads, obtaining information on Daka Crystals and on the secretive Kingdom of Dakata, a visit to the Dakatan London Embassy and Akira trying to use magic to locate the Vault and/or the book.

    Tomorrow we have a Claremont Academy Session followed later in the week with a Balance game...
