...In the "Adventure!: Heroes of Our Time" section. Alex has to step aside for RL reasons and I am going to step up and run a game. Right now discussion is on what kind of game (genre) and the specific ruleset we'll be using (one of the Aeonverse systems)

I'll be looking for 5-6 players (I think) and ultimately I hope to be able to do a GM post once or twice a week (probably Wednesdays and Weekends)

Everybody is welcome to take a look and do CharGen when we figure out the game specifics, I'll choose characters based on Quality an how well they will fit into the game.

Thanks all.

OK now that I have gotten deep enough into the Aberrant game I'd like to go back and start up the Adventure! game that was back-burnered last September...

Would anybody out there be interested in an Adventure! game with a bit of a twist? Looking at making Inspiriation and all its derivations supernatural/mystical/paranormal in nature. I have a decent amoutn put together already and a few house rules in place to make things work and play a little more neatly.

If there's enough intrest I'll ask Chosen for a new forum for the game....

To give an idea of what I have in mind for the Adventure! game ...

Adventure!: Dark Tidings

I’m well aware of what you’ve heard kid. Dr. Hammersmith was experimenting with extracting energy from the universe directly, or that he had tapped into a new form of electromagnetic energy, or that he had discovered a massively efficient power generation device…

Truth is that’s all bull, Hammersmith was a madman and those people he had gathered to his mansion that day had no idea what they were going to witness. Most of them are dead now, by design or accident nobody knows for sure. Nobody saw Hammermsith die, and frankly that worries me. I wasn’t there but I know what did happen. See sometime after that day I started hearing things…

I got the chance to meet Maxwell Mercer a while back, shortly after the accident. With the right questions I was able to steer the conversation back to Hammersmith. Seems that the nature of his experiment was less “Science” and more “occult”. Mercer does believe that the doctor was intending to tap into a new power source. “Ley lines” he called them, invisible rivers of energy crisscrossing the planet. Spiritual energy, the stuff that psychics and magicians allegedly tap into. The stuff of daemons and nightmares.

Do I believe that Hammersmith tapped into the psychic or mystical energy of the planet? Well I would be lying if I said no, after the day of his accident I started hearing things, I told you that. What I didn’t tell you was that I was hearing thoughts from other people. Mercer didn’t speak his thoughts to me, I was able to read his mind.

I’m scared now. There are people out there that have become empowered by the energies released by the “Incident”. Some are people like you or I, determined to use their powers for the good of mankind, others have touched something dark, daemonic and turned to amassing power or satiating their own dark desires, while out in the darkness beings long dormant have been awakened…The Hammersmith Incident may have ushered in a new tomorrow, or it may have been Dark Tidings of the days ahead, only time will tell.
