Operation Black Rain
Plots  (Hired)   (Multi-Storyline)

Agency 17 may have pulled some strings to ensure that the Sarin was moved to this specific facility. Rocksprings Texas is a real life location- located in Edwards County, so it's more deserty.

The facility was originally built by the DEA back during the initial creation of the organization. It's loaned to other government agencies, meaning the staff there could easily be DEA, NSA, or DHS, possibly even a mix. Given the scientific experiments on site, the facility might not just be attempting to destroy the Sarin, but research new methods to render it inert or possibly develop a better cure to administer to those affected by it.

The fact that the facility is relatively poorly defended and lacking security features is one of many things that might stick out to my players as being wrong or fishy. This is intended. Go to Comment

The PCs must find a way to gather enough lifeforce to power the watch long enough to prevent an apocalyptic horror from taking place. Go to Comment
Randy's Janitorial Services

Ted's comment on 2013-08-15 09:05 AM
I should probably make it clear somewhere the RJS does actually have some legitimate janitors who are not involved in any covert operations at all.

And yes, those Janitors often clean up after the covert operations the other side of RJS sometimes pulls off. Go to Comment

Ted's comment on 2013-08-13 09:31 AM
As a history and mysterious prophet figure, it works, but overall John's backstory is a boring tale of some dude avoiding a few assassination attempts while the masses fall at his feet and covert immediately despite the angry guys with swords acting like the Spanish Inquisition running around.

Do Lunist holidays exist in John's name? Are there rites or sayings that invoke him? What are they? Do priests attempt to emulate what little they know about such a bland and mysterious figure who was seen speaking by hundreds if not thousands of people?

How did a guy who managed to convert an entire continent remain mostly anonymous and why are the details of how he lived his daily life shrouded in mystery? Go to Comment

I was going to do a post mortem for CRTF originally, but given how quickly my various posts relating to it stopped relative to how long it went, it never happened.

I documented much more of KM, even with the break towards the end. It deserved it. Go to Comment

Players take cues from the GM about what is important. The GM is the only true source of information players have, and it is painfully easy for players to latch onto unimportant details.

I see it as a question of consistency. What are the consequences for killing a man? Is there a difference between murdering a random serf and a noble?

Beyond that, Players will follow the GM's lead over what details are important or not. The work to make the consistency work has to be made, but random mooks can be made to be more than cannon fodder or cardboard cutouts. Go to Comment
