Roll Credits

Hey fellas! Looks like this show is over. Thanks to all current and former players: Rondo, Doc Rotwang, Wulfgar, Age of Fable, Tavis, Jonathan and Dave. It was great fun running for you guys!

I probably won't post to this blog but I'm leaving it up in case I get the urge to start anew. If you want to keep in touch, look out for me at my main blog, Malevolent & Benign or drop me a line by email.

Trouble Commenting?

So I guess there have been some issues with Blogger that have kept comments from posting properly. On the off chance any of you have had trouble I've switched off the in-page comment box and gone back to a separate page for adding comments.

(I'm sort of hoping that's the deal -- I'm waiting on you four to figure out your next move...)

Have You Ever Been Experienced?

XP for all, even the noobs! I mostly just went by the book (p.19), which favors the fightingest PCs -- Buck & Creature would be 2nd level were they still active. But anyone who contributed to the defeat of a foe got a share, whether they used their fists or their wits.

Zarko: 394
Hobson: 201
Thorax: 91
Awesome Dude: 75

I'll continue responding to the post-brawl thread, but I'm leaving the next move up to you guys. Each of your PCs started with a rumor or two (email me if you need a reminder), and if none of those seems worth pursuing I'm open to whatever you dudes throw at me. Once you got a notion of what you wanna do you can gather up your things and skedaddle. We can gloss over travel back to God City central, unless of course you want to make the trek there your next quest.

Bigby Smalls' Bigtime Brawl: Secret Origins

Now it can be told!

With the Brawl over (for the PCs anyhow), I can reveal the source from which I swiped the whole scenario: It's The Great Outdoor Fight, a beloved storyline from Chris Onstad's brilliant webcomic Achewood.

Om Mane Padme Home Fries

Outdoor battle royale in a huge fenced-in arena? Check.
Rag-tag band of followers? Check.
Recumbent tai chi? Clearing off the wounded by crane? Check.

The whole tale can be found online, starting here (well, there's a prelude of sorts featuring a junkie squirrel and anatomically correct mobile phone accessories). Also available in a print edition published by Dark Horse Comics. Highly recommended!

Hurry Up & Wait II

I'm off to Winter War 36 this afternoon. Among other things I'll be playing Labyrinth Lord and Encounter Critical with the Mighty Rients! Let me tell you about my character...

Anyhow. I'll be offline all weekend. We'll continue where we left off, just to wrap things up with the Brawl, but you all may want to start thinking about what's next for your PCs.

I'll be back to posting on Monday. Rock on, brothers.
