Just played a Flailsnails game in's Boot Hill/Gamma World Mashup with and on Google Plus Hangouts
start by approaching a town in the badlands, all walled up and
Thunderdome-looking. They let us in, but Mike's monkey boy character had
to pay a fee to enter, being an abomination and all. Being called an
abomination in a Gamma World setting really says something, I think.
see a dude about a map, and end up buying a sailboat that cruises
across the sand dunes, partly sled and partly on wheels, (I figure it
looks like the one from the Martian Chronicles) to get to where the map
told us to go. We pick up a couple henchmen, one of whom can shape
shift, and the other has lightning he can shoot from his hands short
Anyhow, we zoom through a canyon with weirdass spores
in it, and all have an acid trip. Retards that we are, we forgot to
buy gas masks in Gamma World, even though everyone in town had them on.
Duh. Somehow Sir the Fist is able to still maneuver the ship through
the cracks crevices and avoid crashing it into a rock wall. I figure
the acid trip had to help.
We find the place the dude/map sent
us to, and there's an old hulk of a ship buried underground, the size of
a skyscraper. The blast doors are open, and we head on in.
That was our first mistake.
place is massive. There are catwalks and corridors, many levels up and
down. We head towards a glowing blue thing, because why not? On our
way, we come across a hacked up body. After looting it, of course, we
see the massive cat thing that was the likely killer, judging by the
claw marks, several levels below on a catwalk, heading in the same
general direction we're going.
Presumably still under the influence of LSD, we continue in the same direction anyway.
hit a glowing blue wall, and have no idea how to pass through it. We
search and find the "Red Button". Naturally, we have a henchmen hit it,
since it is a "Red Button" and we all know never to personally hit the
"Red Button," ever. We all stand way the fuck back. Lightning hands
has to use his zappyness while hitting the button to have any effect.
The wall goes down, we go thru, the wall goes up behind us.
Never a good thing.
encounter what I think looked like some sort of small weaponized robot
with lights. I blast it with a laser wand, and others with missile
weapons, until it flies away.
Apparently it called for backup.
Next thing you know, two cyborg things on speeder bikes come at us, and start zapping paralyze beams in our general direction.
Now, in Castle Amber, Sir the Fist looted a Ring of Spell Turning off of the body of
's other pc, Noggin. And its a damn good thing he did. I rolled the
only natural 100 that I remember in years, and one dude on a sled drops,
paralyzing himself. A couple of our guys are also paralyzed.
the other Robo-cop closes. Our henchmen get involved, which brings up
another fear, because apparently lightning hands and his buddy are twice
our level, as we just discovered. If we make it out of the fight
alive, now I have to worry that our henchmen see our general level of
pussyness and take us out after the fight with Robocop.
is a badass in his own right, blasting lasers out of his hand like
Boba-Fett shoots missiles and fire. Lightning hands leaps at Robo-cop,
and in an Aikido style move, manages to dislodge the dude from the bike,
throwing him into the blue wall of death. Some slight damage is
taken. We all close in. While Mike attacked the Robo-cop's laser-hand
with a crowbar, trying to pry it loose, Sir the Fist closes with his
sword and prays for a quick death, as it seems Robo-cop is like 10th
level or something, and his lasers are melting steel girders when they
Weaponized boxes the size of dump trucks, whose stats,
Kyrinn implies, make Robo-cop look like a mosquito in comparison, are
now approaching as we fight.
At one point in the fight Sir the
Fist was the only one standing, thanks to the Ring of Spell Turning,
with piss running down his leg.
We manage to finish off Robo-cop
after a few lucky rolls, and discover that his hand is able to be
detached, and one of us could hack off our own hand, Vecna-style, and
attach it to the stump, thereby giving us a cyborg hand that shoots
lasers. Mike Heals up Barry with some random needle and potion thingy
he found in a garbage heap back in Thunderdome.
As Sir the Fist
does a pain/benefit analysis of the hand transplant, the Dump Trucks of
Doom approach. Screaming like little girls, we try to lower the blue
wall, but to no avail. We get the idea (wis check) that the hand of the
Robo-cop might open the door if it touches a panel, since nothing else
seems to work.
We get the door open, and Sir the Fist is the last
guy standing again, as the rest of the group falls to the strange
debilitating beams from the evil Dump Trucks. Sir the Fist is able to
get one guy out, and chooses
's guy, since the Ring of ST I looted off his other pc last month is
the only thing that kept my ass alive this whole time. I figure I owe
him one. :)
With the Dumptrucks approaching, I grab Barry's pc,
fling him over my shoulder, and run my ass off, a trail of urine and
fecal matter acting as Bobby Brady's popcorn trail in Hawaii, letting
all know in what direction I ran.
The other guys were captured,
and cyborgized, and let back into the Flailsnails universe. I think one
of them might have gotten laid with some redheaded chick somewhere, but
I can't be sure because I was too scared to listen to all of what
Kyrinn said happened to them. They are now part of the Borg collective
in some way, with implants in the back of their heads, Matrix-style.
Trust them at your own peril. :)
And Mother of Christ was there a
boatload of xp. It was a fucking blast, literally and figuratively,
and deadly as hell. Makes Castle Amber look like a nice place to
vacation. Sir the Fist is now C-4, MU-3, F-3. Next time I go back
there though, I'm bringing Count Dooku's Clone Army with me, so I have a
better chance of survival.
Wil Wheaton vs. Bargle! - D&D fans love hearing about famous people who have played our hobby. Joss Whedon, Vin Diesel, Kevin Smith, Metallica, My Chemical Romance, the list is too...
