7 months late, but it's never to late to talk about BOYL!
BOYL15's film related game was 'Do Rogue Traders Dream of Electric Goats' (or I supposed 'Goatrunner' would work too).
JB (asslessman) GMed the game of Replicants, Police, Corporate lackies and Gangers. All with their own goals/motives and a heap load of firepower!
|My replicant band (right) set up near a bunch of thugs.|
The game was fast with groups of 4(ish) for each player. None of us knew the others' goals, not even whether they were even human or replicant.
|Bikers ride into town, barrelling straight at a group of civilians.|
On the other side of the table, bikers attacked civilians. And a bunch of corporate types charged over a raised walkway and began shooting their guns at the gangers. (This is not pictured as it was way over the other side of the table and I kind of forgot about it, sorry.)
|The boys in blue arrive and immediately laydown some covering fire.|
As the police arrived, they challenged the nearest group and having found a replicant amongst them, began 'dispensing justice'.
|Having found the thugs to be fellow replicants, my crew charge in to take out the 'filth'.|
My guys ran to the aid of their replicant buddies. With their enhanced strength and speed, they quick took care of the police officers they encountered. I was at this stage I found the flaw in my aggressive action - the police had reinforcements and just kept on coming.
|The bikers find the civilians harder to deal with than expected. Some group up and say hello to a local Lady of the Night.|
On the far side of the table......things happened!?! I was so engrossed in my side of the game I lost track of what was going on elsewhere.
I think it can be summed up as:
- People shot guns at other people, so those people shot back.
- Some of the people on both sides died
- A prostitute found a punter.
- more shooting and dying.
At this point my game was over. I would usually stay to watch the end result, but I had a game of Blood Bowl to play in the OldBowl tournament.
This game was fast, fun and brutal - Thanks JB!
Coming soon......... Anarchy in the UnderHive (my last belated BOYL report.
