Shoot Em’ Up!


Yet another crazy game night for the OOTAK crew!

I fairly confident that, this time, I caught all of the action. Monday night saw the wrapping up of our Coffin Rock scenario and it’s final, apocalyptic confrontation. Let’s just say that the hilarity, horror and conflaguration that follows our little band by no means represents who we, the members of OOTAK, are as actual people!

Quick breakdown as follows:

Becky – aka Christine “Chris” Walsh – Wow, who would have thought that a d4 in Throwing would be such a handy skill in the hands of a woman motivated to play some Savage Worlds! The good doctor has established one thing during this entire scenario: That she is good at killing. Louis, Twain, Tunkwana and Sully all have yet to see how she actually fares at doctorin’, but if it’s anything like her shooting or her throwing we just might make it out of this campaign in one piece. well, some of us anyway. Becky made spaghetti and breadsticks. She also concluded that civilized people eat off plates and that savages eat from bowls! Take that people! 

Eric – aka Louis “Death” Owens – Suddenly decided that he would take the side of the law and found himself a mighty comfy little sniper spot. We finally established that Louis is pretty handy with a rifle and he made short work of a death-crazed cultist hell-bent on cutting Sully a pair of angel wings. Sadly, something very, VERY bad happens to Louis Owens…

Todd – aka Tunkwana – Made a brief appearance at the beginning of the game to announce that he wouldn’t be around for most of the session. Apparently eating is more important than gaming!? Pfffffhhttt! When Tunkwana did make his return it was to mostly scout out the Sheriff’s office. Let’s just say that Todd, in his previous incarnations, has spent WAY too much time checking for traps!

James – aka Twain Virgusson – Convinced us that the strange magic that can convey one through space-time can also completely render the prodigious amounts of alcohol flowing through one’s bloodstream completely inert! Twain also convinced us that “Shhhhhuuuuuutttttttttt uuuuuuuuppp!” is an appropriate greeting when the frightened owner of a house, that Twain was magically transported inside of, demands to know who intruded into his home. Twain felt mortal terror upon realizing that he, shockingly, had sobered up.

Oh no! I’m sober? I’m sober!

Patrick – aka Sully Beauregard – Is really, REALLY good at what he does. And what he (Sully) does is kill. Crazed cultists were no match for Sully’s murderous six-shooters. Although there will be a certain crispy cultist that will forever hop her way through Sully’s nightmares. Sound interesting? That’s because it is. Wait for it people!

Jayson – aka The GM –  Clearly Jayson is full of awesome. The crew spent part of the night wishing our fearless GM a very happy birthday OOTAK sytle! Although I think that most people who know him will concede that Jayson is still a horrible monster even if he is a year older and wiser…

Our Deadlands game continues next session…
