*Preview* Red Markets – 10K Lakes – Enclave Generation

*The following post and podcast was originally posted on the Technical Difficulties Gaming Podcast.  Please subscribe to their feed as well to stay current with the 10K Lake campaign*

We’ve gotten together with The Roleplaying Exchange and [Insert Quest Here] to create a living campaign setting for Red Markets, set in the great state of Minnesota. Our upcoming actual plays will be divided amongst the three podcasts (and any others that join in) with a drop-in/drop-out play structure.

Episodes will be up in the next few weeks, but until then you can listen to us create a post-Crash Midwest. You can also join in on the discussion on the recently created LifeLines Forum.

Actual Play: Fiasco – Innsmouthsburg

 

The sleepy little town of Innsmouth is under attack by a dark force, something that has plagued humanity for years, targeting the hungry and poor: gentrification. Artists, socialites, and tastemakers are flocking to the seaside village, flooding the street with fixie bicycles and artisan coffee shops. But little do these hipsters know, something older resides in Innsmouthsburg, and the call haunts the dreams of the long-time residents. Everyone has an agenda, and that can only lead to… a Fiasco.

Actual Play: Red Markets – King of the Hill Episode 3

 

The crew has finally made it to Fort Seeley, but the base is currently occupied by DHQS operators, and under surveillance by Canadian nationals. They’ve come up with a plan to neutralize both sides by kiting a horde of casualties to the fort, but it’s a high risk plan. Will they be able to secure the site without any setbacks, or will Thumb slip up again?

Red Markets: King of the Hill Episode 2

 

The Copper Kings have been contracted by a man calling himself Goodyear: they need to secure a supposedly abandoned air force base housing an experimental airship. But they need to get to the site first: a journey, on foot, through zombie-infested hillside. Will the crew be able to make a profit on their journey, or will Thumb screw shit up?

Actual Play: Delta Green – Operation: PELAGIC

 

 

A group of federal employees with special clearance are scrambled to Crofton, Maryland, as the Program comes to fear infiltration by a non-human lineage. The body of William Garrett, NSA analyst and Delta Green friendly, has been discovered in his townhouse. Garrett’s cadaver appears to have been partially transformed into a reptilian, or possibly aquatic, hominid monstrosity. Have the Program’s efforts to track and sever the Innsmouth bloodlines been in vain? What killed William Garrett, and how? Operation PELAGIC has been activated at short notice to plunge into murkier depths than anyone could possibly expect in this original scenario.

Actual Play: Red Markets -King Of The Hill – Episode 1

 

The Copper Kings, a taker crew out of Anaconda, MT, are in dire straits. Stuck in west Montana , strapped for cash, and five years out in the Loss, they’ve come up with a score that should be able to get them out of the Loss. But they need the starting capital to even get there, which means getting the contract for an outside job. Unfortunately, their group’s negotiator is out of commission. How will the B team negotiate a good contract without their social specialist?

Check out our fist crossover episode with the crew from the Technical Difficulties Gaming Podcast.

“What good is $10 million if you can’t have real money.” –Jesse Livermore
It’s not the body that’s the problem; Howard Rochester has been on his last legs for months now. No, the real problem is everything else; the death of the richest man in Hitchcock Reserve Gated Community leaves a very big power vacuum. Rochester had a lot of secrets dealings, obligations, and there was that unfortunate business with Susan Grossman…
Now the money, power, (assisted) sex, and lies are crashing down, and it’s up to you to pick up the pieces. How do you act after you’ve achieved the American Dream, and watched the white picket fence rot?

Warning:  We get a bit political here.

Hudson and Agent Gould lie in wait in the unoccupied but recently fortified Ulee house, Agent Tell and Ranger Salt race to Montana to meet up with their fellow agents.  Will the agents’ preparations pay off?  Will Aaron lose yet another character?  Tune in for this dramatic conclusion of the Dennis Detwiller scenario, Viscid.
