The gm was distracted, one of the players didn't show up til very much later than it would have made sense to start playing...
Ended up chatting about other stuff of a gaming related nature and i did a teeny bit of work on the homebrew, Rifts, 200AD, Powerpuff Girls inspired post-apocalyptic chibi animals setting I am working on for the Barbarians of Lemuria system... yeah.
An underclass ruled over by a tyrannical dictatorship known as the catacracy, fight back a la Terminator's 'the resisitance'. It's meant to be a light-hearted, action and adventure style game, though bit's of the background seem a bit grim... slavery, torture, experimentation etc...
Ooh! also purchased the Anime style rpg 'Maid' (link to the official website) the character creation is meant to be done by rolling on several progressively bonkers tables, though there is option to just choose... (I like the tables) I haven't checked out the rules system yet, but it is likely easy enough to port it elsewhere if desired and just use character creation tables to come up with the crazy concepts.
Here's the blurb from the site
"You are a maid, having worked dutifully for the Saionji family for several
years. You are also a shy albino princess who does odd jobs for the yakuza, and
train with the three-section staff. Your peer Maya is an
outgoing young maid with freckles, a streak of being greedy for
sweets, and who also happens to be a military cyborg.
Your master is a kind teenager who lives in the mansion alone, but is
a bit of a train otaku. He is also a cursed werewolf. With amnesia.
Somewhere between doing the laundry and preparing lunch, the master
is kidnapped by evil ninjas. They escape through the basement of the mansion,
which contains a portal to the Netherworld. It's up to you to get him
back before dinnertime.
All in a day's work for a maid!"
I need to catch up on about a months worth of other peoples blog posts soon, before it becomes two months of other peoples blog posts...
Game on! Peace and stuff! Jessica.
