I’ve Been Shot!

It is a sad, sad day in OOTAK-land this evening as I (Patrick) realized that I completely dropped the ball on last Monday night’s session of our regularly scheduled session.

Apparently I do not even know how to operate my own equipment properly and neglected to press the flashing red record button on my Tascam DR-40 recorder…

A brief breakdown of the action is as follows:

Becky – aka Christine Walsh: Becky, kicked off the evening with some delicious, homemade pizza. I can’t begin to express just how awesome it was. Alas, the recording of our Ooohs & Ahhhhs has been forever lost to time. Christine Walsh followed her friends into a seemingly abandoned mineshaft. Events transpired and eventually Christine consented to let a ghost “ride” her body a little further into the plot. Doctor Walsh established her prowess with a rifle when she shot “Sully” in the back for 19 damage. That’s right NINETEEN!

Becky: (laughing) I rolled a one on my shooting dice.
GM: Okay you hit Patrick’s character.
Becky: (still laughing) I do 19 damage…
GM: What’s your toughness?
Me: Five…
Group: laughing.
Me: Oh sh*t that kills me! (getting mad)
GM: No it doesn’t, you’re just at three wounds.
Me: Which effectively renders me dead…
GM: Do you wanna use a Benny to reroll?
Becky: No.
Me: Dammit!
Becky: Don’t worry I’ll heal you.
Me: Yeah, sure…
The Group: laughing

Let’s just say that one member of the infamous OOTAK crew lost his sh*t and nearly cried with frustration. Sadly, that outburst is forever lost to time and memory as well. Way to go Doctor Woman. Well played!

Eric – aka Louis “Death” Owens: Our fearless and intrepid leader led us into the jaws of death, not knowing that certain death awaited him. Not at the hands of the plot, or the vile scheming of OOTAK’s resident monster/GM. No, Louis Owens’ fate came down to a simple Vigor roll at the end of the session. Will “Death” Owens surrender his slowly ebbing life to a noble sacrifice? Or will he go for the TPK and take his “friends” out with him? We don’t yet know the answer, but you can bet on finding out at some point in the future!

Todd – aka Tunkwana: Tunkwana demonstrated that there are many things in this world that “Pale Face” does not seem to notice; as in, for instance, a trap that would have most certainly killed one of the party. Tunkwana and his spear are a force to be reckoned with. Don’t mess with a bad-ass native-American with a chip on his shoulder and a cougar the size of a lion!

James – aka Twain Virgussen: I think James, his characters, or both have a thing for horses. Seriously… Needless to say that Twain, fearing the horrors of his past come to life again in the darkened bowels of the spooky mineshaft, elected to stay with the horses and polish off his last bottle of grog. To be fair, Twain decided to confront his fears, in a moment of completely modest bravado, and attempted to join up with the rest of the party. Sadly he was raving by the time he got there. Thankfully he isn’t as handy with a rifle as Christine…

Patrick – aka “Sully” Beauregard: Sully got shot in the back and it hurt. In fact, it hurt so badly that I (Patrick) was forced to use my Adventure Card to keep from nearly dying. Thanks Doctor Woman! Yeah, I was the guy who lost his shit that night… 😛

Jayson – aka The GM: Likes leading the party into traps. He also has a penchant for monsters, well because, let’s face it, Jayson, our beloved GM, is a horrible monster and then Jayson was zombie…

Black Mamba!

Session Date: 04/19/2013

Our Dresden Files campaign continued this past Friday night. Also, if you like our actual plays, look for them on www.rpgmp3.com! It looks like Hal & Company will be resuming their normal upload schedule. OOTAK has another hilarious and irreverent campaign in the hopper, so be sure not to miss out on those sessions!

The “heroes” of our Dresden Files campaign spent our latest session investigating some very, VERY bad mojo.

Leopold (aka James), OOTAK’s fearless leader (again, while Todd is away), led the proverbial charge this time, urging his “friends” onward during their investigation of the very bad things happening in Runson City. I think we can all agree; having a magical “psychic” investigator can come in handy.

Brandi (aka Becky) spent most of the session stripping and sleeping. Yeah, strippers work… alot! She also chatted up a cop, but failed her intimidate roll… sigh… In reality, Becky spent most of the session preparing a wonderful assortment of items for the OOTAK crew to eat. Homemade guacamole, “kabobs”, this amazing olive dip, bacon-cream cheese-chili poppers! Mmmmmm, oh what a feast it was!

Cody (aka Eric) managed not to murder anyone this session; however he did offer to help Gus further his case against the Runson City police department in the form of further grievous bodily injury. Oh yeah, did I mention that Cody and Leopold are buddies? Or that Cody and Brandi are secretly dating?

Gus (aka Me) had a little run-in with an overzealous detective. Okay, so the good peace-officer was trying to do his job, but damn(!), young, motivated, good-looking and (most importantly) gullible production assistants are hard to find in Runson City! Can anyone say “lawsuit”? Looks like I will be shifting my resources up a tier thanks to the efforts of the RCPD!

Unfortunately Todd didn’t get a chance to listen in on the session. Don’t tell him that it was my fault, I think he hates me! Next time Todd, next time!

Our GM (Jayson) demonstrated his utter lack of propriety and respect for the OOTAK crew by transforming one of his favorite NPCs into a horrible(r) monster… as if being annoying wasn’t already enough! Honestly, I don’t know why Jay has such a boner for the “Black Mamba”?

“Blacula” is black! Silly GM…
