Concluding the adventure where a group of people connected by the Internet play a group of people going to an amusement park to play a group of people in a virtual adventure... Zombies, dinosaurs and far too much heavy weaponry meet on a post-apocalypse tropical island... Can the Whartson Hall Aethernauts avoid a spectacular Total Party Kill? Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen.
Played using the Dream Park RPG from R. Talsorian Games, now out of print but widely available on the secondhand market.

Intro and Outro pieces used with kind permission of Professor Elemental.

The Players:
Jon: The GM and Dennis (the GM inside the park)
Amelia: Zatanna, Warrior Woman of the Wastes
Mark: Marvin the Magnificent
Nick: Ron Jambo
Martin: Something Nasty

I do like the GM having a GM to play in the game. It leads to great lines like those from the first session that go something like "Oh no, that's not me doing that terrible thing to your character... That's Dennis!" 8)

Thanks all!

Thank you Mr Hal and Aethernaughts!

BTW, would the Aethernaughts be a subdivision of WH or something else entirely?

Ron Jambo is my new hero! The name of the submarine cracked me up. Dennis is a great idea. Top hole everyone involved :)

*Grimaces stoically* Ron Jambo aint no hero. He's just a guy doing his job.

The Aethernaughts are the Whartson Hall spin off series :)

We consist of Big Jack Brass, a long-term Whartson inmate, me, Lordof1, Riddles, and Martimus when he can join us (who's hopefully running a game for us soon) , and other occasional interlopers. The games are run through GooglePlus Hangouts as we're scattered across the country.

Well, I -say- he isn't a hero. Obviously he's a bit heroic. Just a bit. I mean, I'll leave it for his grateful fans to decide, really, it's not up to me to point out what a prince amongst men he is.

I read the first one, and quite liked it. I read one other at random, and wasn't as much of a fan.

I read the first three - Dream Park, The Barsoom Project and The California Voodoo Game - twenty years ago and return to them now and then. Haven't tried the latest one, The Moon Maze Game, in part because I've heard that there are a number of serious editing problems with the hardback and I never got around to checking if the paperback was any improvement. To be honest, the story wasn't terribly well received by Dream Park fans, either.

They're a mixed bag, not helped by forced retconning in the middle of the series, changing the technologies and the future timeline, and the first novel is probably still the best. It's a crime novel set in an unusual environment, which gives it some nice drama, although inevitably the depiction of gamers and gaming seems rather quaint to a modern reader.

I loved the original three books. Moon Maze game is currently sat in my "to read" pile.

Been a while since I saw Dream Park. I GM'd it for a bit, ran the Big Zombie Pirate then started to write my own scnearios. I always thought the adventure creation guide was one of the better ones in an RPG. Gave good advice on structuring a game for Dream Park.

My only real issue with it as a system is that the Magic system is broken. It is quite harsh on spell-casters. I always wanted to re-write it to make it more in keeping with the books. . .
