Part one of the soon to be mythical Brooke family saga
The Brookes thought they were going to the small, quiet, catholic island of
Al'Amarja to share in the good fortune of their lottery-winning relative
Karen. Unfortunately within moments her house had exploded in flames, and
both her and her son Joe were incinerated. Even worse, it turned out that
Joe had been ritually slaugtered before his death. On the bright side, the
arsonist was also injured and held in hospital by the police.
Things got worse: Joe was dug up and incinerated _properly_. The
hospitalised murderer escaped, and all the while there were mysterious
goings on involving "The society". The murderer was linked to the strict
Catholic sect Umbra Domini. All very confusing. Then gradually it came
out, Joe was the product of Karen's artifical insemination - by a new
technique of oocyte donation... in the case in question, its a little likely
that the eggs were developed from the blood of Christ, taken from religious
artifacts. It was Messianic Park. In a way you can sort of understand Umbra
Domini's murderous spree
Much was left unresolved - who were the society, what was their involvement
with Felipe (and why was he unconciously going to kill Grandpapa Joseph)?
And there was Frey, killed in a violent (but aesthetically pleasing) clifftop
fight with the leader of Umbra Domini - yet neither of the bodies were
discovered - did one (or both) of them survive? What did Grandpapa actually
do in Minsk all those years ago? Is Dave really just an innocent cabbie
who likes making tea? And there was the book - what was so special about
it? Oh - and did Jeremy survive in the rainforest... I don't think any of
the players even bothered watching celebrity survivor...?
What sort of GM would leave all those questions hanging? Is there another
installment planned? Erm... yes. To be frank. OTE:Deuteronomy - the second
law... Coming soon.
The one with Elvis Holly, Dolphin Dogs and Nuclear fire extinguishers
The great unnamed alien cloning conspiracy adventure from hell
Having been framed for a murder, the PCs were helped in their escape from
Surrey by masked conspirators. Arriving on Al'Amarja it became clear that
weirdness was afoot, dead pop stars were walking the streets and that the
person who had actually carried out the murder was a psychopath who belived
an angel was telling him what to do. As they finally trapped "Buddy" Holly
(who turned out to be Buddy's son, Elvis) and were about to find the terrible
truth, everythign went black.
Awakening within an alien spaceship (burried deep under al'amarja) and finding
themselves prisoners of Dolphin-Dogs (from Sirius), it became clear that
things wern't as simple as they had once seemed. And one of the characters
(James Mercer) began to realise there were several of him, all of whom had
similar memories, vague background history and were not involved in any form
of sexual tension.
Ultimately it became clear the world was to end at new year (Monique
D'Aubainne's Birthday party no less), and it was pretty much left to the PCs
to sort things out. This they did with the help of a rock star / god and
a bit of well faked resurrection. The aliens never did use the power of
belief to get off the planet. But everyone else was happy.
