Tempora Mutantur 2015

Utopia 299

Well I’ll be damned; I actually got to run a tabletop session of Tempora Mutantur yesterday. I had three players at the table, and like my previous convention games I used a missile silo for the adventure site…

I went with a railroad intro – before being swallowed by a rad storm, the party discovers a heavy metal hatch set into the ground, with a ladder leading down. Anticipating casualties, each player was allowed two characters (for a total of six PCs). Surprisingly, all six survived – and no one received any (new) mutations.

Character stats are given after the jump…

Player Characters – Underground Con ’12

Posted in Game Session with tags , , , , on 11-Jun-12 by K-Slacker

On Saturday, June 9th, I ran a tabletop session of Tempora Mutantur at Underground Con. I had five players at the table, and like last year’s game, I ran an adventure based in a missile silo. I don’t have time to post a full session report right now, but I wanted to get the PCs online…

For the Convention, I wanted to use the “Alternative Core Rules“. I also took a stack of Character Cards.

Thank-you to all the players for gaming! I appreciate your time and enthusiasm.

November 26th Skype Session

Posted in Campaign Info, Game Session with tags , , , , , on 28-Nov-11 by K-Slacker

On Saturday, November 26th, I had the good fortune to run both a Tabletop game and a Play-by-Skype session of Tempora Mutantur. Here is a brief (and deliberately evasive) session log of the evening Skype game…

In previous sessions, a group of PCs set off from Crestone to locate the tribe of Crow-that-Dances. Richard the Tainted and Silent Jack were stationed at the Farmyard; while Crow, Gunnar, and Zieser Three-Arm located and befriended Crow’s tribe, which had been attacked by “metal men” and retreated further into the Forest of Eyes.

The Skype game was broken into two segments; in the first, Professor Dogface learned of the events at the Farmyard. In the second, the other PCs discovered the source of the mysterious radio transmissions.

November 26th Tabletop Session

Posted in Campaign Info, Game Session with tags , , , , , on 28-Nov-11 by K-Slacker

On Saturday, November 26th, I had the good fortune to run both a Tabletop game and a Play-by-Skype session of Tempora Mutantur. Here is a session log of the afternoon tabletop game…

In previous sessions, Steckel had previously been identified as a descendent of Paul Bachman, one of the members of Habicorb’s board of directors. The central computer of the Eden Praire Vault Complex had agreed to let Steckel and his direct family access to the restored module known as the “Roach Motel”. The elders of Tau have condoned a slow, cautious establishment of a ‘satellite vault’ at Eden Prairie; and Steckel’s father and three siblings are to become the first four permanent ‘colonists’.

A Conversation with Methuselah

Posted in Campaign Info, Game Session with tags , , , on 20-Nov-11 by K-Slacker

UPDATE 20-Nov-11: I’ll keep reposting this whenever there’s a new response from Methuselah.

Within a regeneration pod in the Eden Prairie Vault Complex, a shrunken and wizened form clings to life. More than a century old, the life of this man (nicknamed ‘Methuselah’) has been sustained for decades only by high-tech medical assistance. His metabolism is reduced to a crawl, but he can still communicate – s l o w l y – with others. The Central Computer of Eden Prairie must process and translate for Methuselah, but it is possible for the PCs to converse – if given enough time.

Well, it’s a bit late but here is another session report. On Saturday 22-Oct-11, I ran a short Play-by-Skype game. Moses played three PCs – Crow, Gunnar, and Zieser. Richard and Silent Jack also joined the group as far as the abandoned farmyard.

Crow’s Diary entry (below) will serve as the session log for this adventure. XP awards and referee notes from me will be added as comments.
