Wandering around the library, Spectre find a box with a strangely familiar marking on it


When he opens the box, everyone disappears and is transported to a futuristic city. Everyone but Spectre. They find that the city is populated by a very homogeneous group of people, with one fashion, one building style, repeating patterns seemingly endlessly. Its spooky. There is increasing pressure for our adventurers to conform to the norm here, and more disturbingly an increasing willingness to do exactly that. Eventually our heroes are herded into a reeducation center, and just when it looks like this is the end, they all find themselves back in the library.

Everyone except Spectre.

Sharlton Cordwin describes this world in his TPS report.

The lost treasure of Ricodora
The greatest treasure of all

Our party (minus some, plus banshee) took shelter from a storm in a nearby cave. Lightning shook the earth and revealed a map to the legendary Lost Treasure of Ricodora. But the map was not terribly specific, and looking for it took a while.

On the way the party found a town. The inhabitants of this town were shocked to see the non-human members of the party (except the cat, who disguised herself). We passed ourselves off as traveling performers and our odd appearances as part of the act, but this did not go over too well.

Eventually our party found the entrance to the treasure vault, which turned out to be not gold but the great library of an ancient civilization, the Library of Ricodora.

Space Pirates
Piracy is more fun when you can breathe

Our characters found themselves on a plush space-liner, the Expedition. After poking each other for a bit (literally and figuratively), they moved on to exploring the ship. And trying to steal / forge each others tickets, which was more difficult because noone had a ticket.

Then the pirates came. Each character reacted differently. Trillian found she had a way with shipboard oracles. Raveek panicked and disappeared. The lady with the glasses went looking for a snack, and we know not what she did from there.

The ghost began to fight off the pirates, causing great consternation with his incorporeal nature. The pirates first method of solution to pretty much every problem was to shoot it. When that didn’t work, they shot some more. The ghost eventually found a way to shut them up. Can’t keep shooting when you can’t breathe.

The cat and Trillian came up with a clever plan. They snuck on to the pirate’s ship and convinced the pirate’s (through magic and some persuasive conversation with the pirate’s “oracle”) that the police were on their way.

The pirates fled back to their ship, and our adventures found their way back to the liner, where Trillian’s new-found skills found them excellent rooms for the duration of their stay.

+2 XP for Charlie, Rachael and Tom (who literally or figuratively left early)
+4 for Tanya and Heather (who saved the day)

In the beginning
character creation

Our first session will be over Skype with video, and then we’ll be making characters. Bring your BESM book, or if you don’t have one I’m like a portable BESM book.
