Forgotten Futures: Weirdzone 01: Through a Glass, Starkly

Posted Image


Separated by many miles, yet brought together through remarkable advances in SCIENCE, the Whartson Hall Aethernauts embark on a voyage to wondrous futures past!

Certainly not Richmond, possibly not 1893: The hapless visitors to the unexpectedly mobile house of Sir William Reynolds, brilliant but distinctly eccentric inventor, find their host gone along with their views of Surrey, replaced by a strangely lush landscape of fern-like plants and jungle. When a toothy, squamous head emerges from the greenery the guests find themselves unexpectedly hunted and horribly ill-equipped.

The Game: Forgotten Futures by Marcus L. Rowland. The adventure setting is adapted from Weirdzone by Richard Tucholka and Tri Tac Games.
Intro and outro musical excerpts are by that most splendid gentleman Professor Elemental, used with his kind permission.
The Whartson Hall Aethernauts play through the Google+ Hangouts facility rather than face-to-face in a room. Despite our frankly perfunctory efforts, listeners may find some reduction in sound quality as a result. We can assure you that this is despite using only the finest grade of wax cylinders in our phonographs.

The Players:
Amelia: Lady Lettie Parkhurst
Tim: Sir George Mathews
Riddles: John Bull
Jon: The GM

I apologise for not warning listeners in advance about the unfortunate treatment of houseplants in this episode.

My only complaint is that the dinosaurs have insufficient feathers. Also, the lack of classification of the beasty involved. It definitely is a Theropod, but of what branch? Genus, family, species man! How are we to appreciate the wonders of nature unless we know what is tramping about the Reynolds' estate!

:D Well now, is this a dinosaur as we might understand it or a dinosaur as a Victorian would expect it to look? Sadly, none of the characters have the academic background to identify precisely what they are dealing with. If only they had time to look through Sir William's extensive library...

Glad to be caught up on weirdzone.

I suspect Unknown Armies was the system you recall rewarding doubles. It's percentile skill rolls and doubles under are good "cherries" and doubles over are bad news.

Haven't read or played that one. Mind you, odd little system quirks like that crop up all over the place.
