I was looking for sci-fi paper minis. I didn't like a whole lot of what I found, but I did find this:

Darkspawn elves making weapons in a workshop, eight tainted halla, and a broodmother referred to as Auntie Claws makes for a wonderful themed game of Dragon Age RPG!

In honor of N7 Day, our Dragon Age RPG game had 5 very special PC options. Inspired by Bioware artist, Andrew Ryan's "Dragon Effect" series, I made PC alternates for the players to use in an "Assault the Citadel" game that requires two sessions and two teams to complete.

The first mission was a frontal assault on the darkspawn-infested ruin known as the Citadel. Shepard and Grunt (played as PCs by players who normally play more stealthy builds) accompanied some of the regular team to draw the darkspawn out of the ruins.

Next session, Mordin, Legion, and Liara will aid our stealthy PCs in infiltrating the Citadel to rescue Shepard's crew mate, Ashley.

The haters have a few legitimate points, but No Man's Sky really hits the sweet spot for me. Lots of exploration, crafting, and space photography.

Ran my first game of The Dungeon, a mashup of classic D&D tropes and The Office. I'm using InSpectres for the ruleset. We were down by about half of the usual group, so we gave it a go. Everyone enjoyed it, and would like to play again!

I used random name generation to determine both name and gender. I used names from Behind the Name filtered for most boring and most simple in both feminine and masculine. I made my own chart for surnames. Our three protagonists ended up being:

Phil Bloodskull—an orc working in Humanoid Resources who takes improv classes and has made a commercial.

Ronnie Redboyle—a zombie working in Engineering and head of Workplace Safety.

Frank Headburg—a cynical bugbear accountant who hates corporate bullshit.

The job was to form an interdepartmental team to investigate the lack of progress on the bottomless pit in the Welcome Center (aka Dungeon Level 1). Shareholders were expecting a pit of infinite depth by the end of the quarter in hopes that the hazard would attract risk-seeking clients to adventure in Undermine, Inc.

The game was funny, with my favorite part being when Ronnie declared that the bottomless pit was designed with safety and handicap accessibility as the primary concerns.

The job was short, and only took 2 hours (real time) to complete. In the end, they filled the pit with blood, found an ancient artifact, and summoned an Earthquake Dragon (???) which ultimately finished that pit. Awesome!

The confessional mechanic is fun, and the shared narrative makes prep almost unnecessary. The InSpectres system is really worth checking out as an alternative to your regular game.
