Legion of Liberty Session 4
With the British penned up in Boston, colonial General Artemas Ward orders the fortification of Breed’s and Bunker Hills in Charlestown, with an eye to forcing the British to evacuate or face bombardment. The British, knowing their position would be untenable under such bombardment, plan a major attack across the Charles River to take the hills from […]
ETU Actual Play with the Roll20 Gang – 4/18/18
The juniors’ new adventure began with a call to Matt, who had become a fairly celebrated on-campus journalist. The caller claimed to have an explanation for a series of pet disappearances, which rumor credited to a Satanic cult. Matt agreed to pay the caller for his information and to meet him at the Pinebox Cemetery […]
Legion of Liberty Session 3: The Battle of Concord
First, a side note – this session ran on Patriots’ Day, a Massachusetts holiday that commemorates the real-world battles of Lexington and Concord. Now, on to the adventure: Sam Adams and John Hancock have taken refuge in the town of Lexington, and have received word that a large British force with superhuman support is planning […]
Savage Eclipse Phase
I’ve been watching Altered Carbon lately, and that show reminded me a lot of my Eclipse Phase campaign in Savage Worlds. As a result, I thought I’d offer up the adaptation I did for anyone who is interested. The rules adaptation definitely depends on having the Eclipse Phase core rulebook, but it’s been thoroughly Savaged here.

Legion of Liberty Session 2
As the British 64th Foot approached the North Bridge, the colonial militia formed a line on the riverbank blocking their path. The British formed line around 20 paces away, and the heroes noted two Greycoats (members of the Royal Superhuman Regiments) taking position on each flank. On the British right, facing Paul Revere, Francis Parry, and John […]
Review – Necessary Evil
Since I’m working on my own superhero setting, I thought I would check out one of the classic settings from Pinnacle, Necessary Evil. In this setting, aliens have invaded Earth and wiped out almost all of the superheroes – leaving only the supervillains to lead a resistance. The superhero-building rules in Necessary Evil basically mirror those in the […]
