This is a character creation session for our next game, Spirit of the Century.
This is a ‘pulp’ game set before World War 2. Think Indiana Jones type action adventure.
Here is Sean’s initial blurb on the adventure: Everyone will be participating in the story “Doctor Nefario and the Moti of Bombay”. Her majesty is hosting an event on the Island of Colaba (though she is not in attendance) in celebration of the recovery of the cargo of an East India Trading Company vessel that sunk in 1921. The event is being held on the grounds of the St. John the Evangelist Anglican church. The cargo included many valuables being taken from India for safe keeping during the plague outbreak in 1920. We will build the rest of the story from this. BTW Moti is Hindi for pearl.
It feels fresh and I think the group is excited to try this new game which uses the fate dice system.
The picture on the left is from Clutch Cargo, mentioned in the podcast. Also, here is a link to a YouTube video. It’s just freaky.
This Friday, 5/6/11, I will post part two of the character creation. Then, the following Monday will begin our new adventure.
Players: Jeff, Dave, Keri, Chris, Matt
