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: 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: 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…
