DarkLancelot: Mr. Pokeylope: Wish I could get the old group together and play some of this:

[www.farfuture.net image 348x505]

We had such a great GM back in the day that I think it would be a huge letdown if I attempted to "capture the magic" again with new people...

He (our GM) was a writer, and we would play these epic campaigns that carried over from the ones he played back in high school (he was a little older than the rest of us). Every so often, one of his old buddies would fly in to town and they would take over an NPC for the night (since the guy we were running guns for was one of their characters from back in the day). Cracked them up to be doing it, and it was funny to see how they played their character exactly how our GM had been running them for the last year or so.

I loved that game, but the combat rules were kludgy at best.  Did your GM do his own system or patch up the existing system?


He must have at least tweaked it, always seemed to run pretty smooth to me. Was always so satisfying rolling a fat double hander of six siders for some of the bigger guns.

I know I deep sixed one campaign when I, as the noble who had brought the group together, rolled snake eyes trying to fire a FGMP out of the back of some grav-car that we had stolen when I didn't have the proficiency for it. He let me roll against my JOAT to see if I would have the wherewithal to dump the thing before it blew it up... rolled snake eyes again and blew the whole party out of the sky.

He was so pissed.

He barely saved the whole thing by having us take over the skin jobs that we had hired from the Tyrell corp. that we had stashed back at the ship for the second part of our master plan. He screwed with me hard for the rest of the adventure. Think I went through five or six of those damn meatbags...

Twas the penalty for screwing up his story arc.
