Episode 6

Time is the Hunter

Episode 06: Out of the Red

Continuing the adventure I ran for Ain and Irfan last December...

Bounty hunter Jax Hunt and amnesiac lady who called herself Iris Helena were waiting in the Corellian Engineering Corporation VCX-100 light freighter assigned to them, the Screeching Arrow, by the rebel fleet when the Togorian rebel coordinator Meow Skywalker came to them with a job:

"The mission will require you to travel to the Chandrila system in the Core Worlds to extract Imperial bureaucrat Ton Kelauae, his wife Aklu and his daughter Wencie. Land at Nayli Spaceport. The Kelauaes are holed up in Apartment 7C, Blackback Building. The Empire is looking for them and it will be a matter of time before they are discovered. Get to them before the Empire does and bring them back here."

Then they went off on their mission...

The character sheets

Check out the character illustrations on the PC sheets.

And Now, a Standoff!

A dozen visible Imperial stormtroopers were waiting on the streets, blasters pointed at the entrance door Blackback Building. Some of the troops were behind cover of an Uulshos Manufacturing Chariot command speeder.

Jax and Iris pulled 10-year-old Wencie Kelauae close. Jax was preparing two grenades to throw when he considered talking his way out of the standoff. He whispered the idea to Iris, who while slouching as usual, called to the stormtrooper, "Mr. Stormtroopers. Why are you pointing your guns at us? We were just walking out of here. I cook well. Can I cook some lunch for you-" (Failed her Con roll.)

"Drop the weapons, rebel scum," the platoon commander barked at them. "Now! Or we will shoot. Do you want the child to get hurt?"

As Jax quickly mulled over the words, four stormtroopers were moving towards them. Jax was at his wit's end. Neither Iris or he knew what to do next.

Irfan loves the Westward dice

A photo of Irfan as Jax and Ain's arm as Iris.

That was when the Chariot speeder exploded in a ball of flames. Half a dozen armoured troops flew into the air among debris and flame like rag dolls. The Imperials were caught in a crossfire from different attack points across the streets. This allowed Jax, Iris and Wencie to turn and retreat back into the building foyer.

One of the stormtroopers who had fallen in at the lift lobby had regained consciousness and about to fire at them. Jax dropped him again with his Relby-k23 blaster pistol. Iris grabbed a discarded E-11 blaster rifle from the floor. An explosion rocked the building, a cloud of dust billowed into the lift lobby from the foyer.

Lift lobbies are perilous places

Fleeing back into the building!

"Into the storage room!" Jax herded them into the room where he had earlier pilfered new weapons from some crates. The loading bay door was closed and locked. To open it, he fired at the door controls, an action that served only to destroy the door controls and nothing more.

Another explosion rocked the building from within. They now heard blaster fire tearing concrete and plastic in the lift lobby just outside their closed door. Eerily, the sound of battle suddenly ceased.

Jax and Iris pointed their blaster at the inner door, pushing Wencie behind them.

The door slid open. A dark-haired man wearing a dark brown overcoat carrying an A280 blaster rifle stepped in from the lift lobby. He looked at Jax and said, "Why are you here, Jax? Once again people will die because of you, just like Mom and Dad."

Jax said, "Fell?"

It was Jax's brother Fell Hunt.

Irfan's New Dice

31 July 2017 | Hisham | | Role Playing Games
 

I tried ordering some cheap dice from Lazada several weeks ago for Irfan.

Polyhedrals black

The new set of black dice.

Two sets

The new set with his old purple set he bought in Subang Jaya.

Haven't tested them in salt water for perfect balance yet, although random rolls did not result in any numbers that turned up significantly more than others. At least not yet.

The entire legion is here

Edward MacGregor has been commissioning more paper miniatures for his FATE setting Enigma Corps. Here are three new batches for characters set in a South East Asian uchronia, where Western colonialisation did not occur and local culture has evolved into a dieselpunk society.

They are all now live at my Hishgraphics Patreon page. Check out the photos below.

Patreon Commission: Enigma Corps

30 June 2017 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 

In the past two month or so I was commissioned by Edward MacGregor to create several batches of paperminis for his Enigma Corps campaign. Enigma Corps is an uchronic dieselpunk campaign setting set in the early 20th century.

flats

The characters I have drawn for the paper miniatures here are from the Srivijaya Empire in South East Asia.

Enigma Corp Batch 1

The setting also lacks any South East Asian colonialism during the turn of the 20th century.

Enigma Corp Batch 2

I have uploaded two batches of the paper miniatures at Patreon. Each batch has at least 4 designs and a total of 12 paperminis.

Guardsmen

They are both downloadable for free at the following Patreon links:

Soldiers

If you have any RPG campaign whereby you can use these miniatures, feel free to go nuts.

Many thanks to my patron Edward MacGregor for commissioning these artwork and paper miniatures!

 

BFF: The Free Wizards of the Clave

26 June 2017 | Hisham | | RPG Actual Play, RPG Irfan Plays, Role Playing Games
 
Tabletop roleplayers!

The last day of Ramadhan, Irfan taught cousin Aiman to play RPG, specifically BareBones Fantasy (BBF). With the Eid Tabletop RPG Travel Pack I brought, I gamemastered an impromptu session for the cousins in the morning. Irfan tweaked his old player character (PC) Jake Hastur to be the Halfling wizard Drego Andre. Aiman adapted a pre-generated character from the BBF rule book to be an Elven wizard who called himself Johnson Jones.

Session 01: The Cave in the Clave

Tabletop roleplayers!

The Crossing

The two free Wizards Drego and Johnson were travelling the thick woods on foot in the Emondran Clave of the Keranak Kingdoms. (Presumably Johnson is an Emon Elf.)

It was getting dark but there was no place for them to hole up and camp. There were large trees and thick brush everywhere. They came across a river which flowed dangerously fast. If you fell in the water, you would be swept away in its swirling current. On the far bank was the perfect campsite: a sandy riverbank overgrown with delicious edible mushrooms.

Drego volunteered to look for a bridge but (because of his failed Scout skill roll) he was unable to find any way to cross it.

Tabletop roleplayers!

Johnson, who was able to cast a telekinesis spell, silently levitated Drego and floated him over the river toward the far bank. Then, Johnson managed with some difficulty to levitate himself to join Drego on the other side.
Drego said, "Well, I guess we should have done that in the first place."

Tabletop roleplayers!

The Company of Wolves

Night fell. The stars were out and Drego, a very good cook, had picked some mushroom in order to make dinner. Johnson was more than satisfied with the food as he loved having dinner with friends. Then they heard the grown of an animal. They both leapt to their feet. Drego cast a minor fireball (Offensive Strike) spell to light the forest which abruptly halted the growling. Johnson warned him that he spotted four wolves in the bushes about to attack them.

The wolves show themselves and prepared to pounce on the Wizards. Johnson's crossbow bolt struck one of the two wolves eyeing him (removing only 3 Body Points from 15). The other two wolves leapt at Drego. One of them succeeded in biting the Halfling's arm (removing 8 BP from his 20). The bleeding Drego cast a blast of magical fire than swept through both wolves. Both canines were seared by the flames but were still trying to attack (the Offensive Strike spell dealt a 12 point damage).

One of the wolves jumped at Johnson and missed. It fell onto the sand by the river and prepared to attack again, but Johnson used his magic to push the wolf into the river. There was a splash, a yelp and it disappeared into the darkness. Meanwhile, the other wolves - the ones injured by fire - had failed to bite Drego again allowing Drego to cast another burst of flames that killed only one. (The survivor only had 1 BP left and was on fire.)

Johnson pushed the second wolf attacking him into the water using his mind, then helped Drego by doing the same. They thought they heard the final wolf yelp in relief (because the water doused its flames) then immediately yelp in distress (because of the raging river).

Then they were alone again.

 

Cannibal Halfling Logo Commission

Two years ago ago, I did a unit logo patch for Seamus Conneely's Star Wars RPG campaign. Seamus recently contacted me again to commission a logo for his website Cannibal Halfling Gaming. The site features reviews, essays and adventure logs of many tabletop roleplaying games.

Force and Destiny: Jungle in the Sky

17 May 2017 | Hisham | | RPG Actual Play, Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

I was finally able to run another role-playing game session for my students for an English Language speaking exercise, the first for this semester. Probably no other games will be run because it is already quite late in the semester for other sessions. Students will be concentrating on their finals.

Although it was technically a Force and Destiny game, we had character types from Edge of the Empire too, thanks to the Legends of the Galaxy pregenerated character sheets.

Blue and red title card?

Force and Destiny:

Jungle in the Sky

The GALACTIC CIVIL WAR rages
across the Empire! Thousands of
suspected rebel agents have been
rounded up and imprisoned by
the IMPERIAL SECURITY BUREAU in
secret prisons across the galaxy.

        Many innocent citizens have disappeared
because of the Empire's evil wrath,
including SENATOR GAR LODOS
from the DURO system.

With little time to spare,
the REBEL ALLIANCE has sent
an extraction team to the
south pole of the planet CANTO BIGHT
to rescue the senator...

 

Bobo Inbound

A Lambda-class T4 shuttle dropped out of hyperspace and an asteroid the size of a mountain stood in its path. The pilot Malea - a Jedi Warrior/Starfighter Ace - was able to swiftly dodge out of its way (thanks to Enhance power that boosted Piloting - Space skill with a Force die). Her passengers, Byt the Twi'lek Technician/Outlaw Tech, Koogik the Rodian Explorer/Big Game Hunter, Merick the Zabrak Jedi Guardian/Armorer, Salporan the Wookiee Technician/Outlaw Tech and Vonnick the Gand Bounty Hunter/Survivalist were nonplussed by the event and went back to whatever they were doing.

Meanwhile the planet Canto Bight shone like a beacon beneath them.

The projector is busted though. Everything is yellow.

There was a Star Wars crawl, but no music because of technical difficulties.

Traffic control contacted them and Salporan answered them in his native Shryiwook language, telling them that the shuttle Bobo requested permission to land at the southern region of the planet. (For some reason, even with the Setback dice the Deception worked.)

Arrival at Ketri Hill

The Bobo flew toward a small with a landing field called Ketri Hill. The shuttle landed and the team disembarked into the frigid morning air, their breaths billowing visibly and blown away by a light wind.

A stormtrooper approached them as they were about to leave the landing field. He said, "Halt! Civillians are not usually allowed to land here. What is your business here?"

Merick stepped forward and told him that they were expected and invited by the Governor here. (Another successful Deceit check with Setback die!) The armoured trooper stepped aside and told them, "Welcome to Ketri Hill. Enjoy your stay."

After they were alone, they considered their first move, which Vonnick immediately insisted to be looking for food. He quickly took the lead and led the team on a merry chase throughout Ketri Hill streets. He came to a stop at a Gand street vendor and started digging in. (Success in Streetwise with...) However the food was inedible for non-Gands, toxic even (...some Threats).

Amani as Byt, Faeezah as Koogik, Nailah as Malea, Adha as Merick, Saiful as Vonnick, Ridzuan as Salporin

The students with their character sheets wonder what in the world is their teacher up to.

"Sorry, guys," said Vonnick as he slurped his soup through a hole in his mask.

Patreon: City Detectives

30 April 2017 | Hisham | | Patreon Paperminis, Role Playing Games
 

We return to the modern age with a new batch of tabletop RPG paper miniatures: law enforcement agents!

Usable with any investigative or espionage settings, like Delta Green or The Laundry to Dark Conspiracy or Unknown Armies. Maybe even Kult.

There are no tiers for this release of paperminis. Neither Pioneer-class nor the Mariner-class. The zip file contains the best level of artwork for the papermini PDF and a six-page full colour character artwork PDF! Which is basically a Voyager-class release!

Download the free PDF files at the Patreon page here.

They need an intro theme

As usual there are six artwork per batch with each artwork having two colour schemes. Some of the artwork might be recognisable as pastiches of famous TV investigators.

I forgot to include a Sledge Hammer! pastiche.

The ghoul is out there

Let's see how the minis interact with past papermini designs. Here a pair of FBI agents working from the basement of the FBI head office faces off with some form of man-eating ghoul... or a chupacabra.

Where's the rest of the team?

A detective from Central City faces off with a pair of cultists.

kowmang gotta die sometime

An investigator who roam the corridors of Ceres in the asteroid belt discovers a saboteur.

Thanks to the patrons on my Patreon who supported me to be able to create these paperminis. Download the free PDF files at the Patreon page here.

 

SWD6: The Aborted Play Mission

16 April 2017 | Hisham | | Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

Episode Potato

It was not easy to acquire enough free time to run an RPG session these days. So I was very elated to schedule the continuation of Time is the Hunter.

I cleared the coffee table in the living room. I set the map and grid mats. I had the dry erase marker ready for scribbling on the mat. I arranged the paper miniatures as per our cliffhanger ending the last time we played.

It would even be the first time we would use Ain's player character paper miniature on the table!

Then suddenly...

Everybody! Positions!

... I was unable to find the character sheet. Looked in vain for some time, high and low and between unspeakable strata of doom.

So the game session was cancelled and delayed for another time.

Sigh.

 

Tabletop Games Expo at UniMAP

15 April 2017 | Hisham | | Board and Card Games, Recent News, Role Playing Games
 

After almost two years in Perlis, there arose an opportunity to host a tabletop game exhibition here at the university. Gray and Ben both gamers I knew and interacted with online back in Kuala Lumpur were planning a KakiTabletop Northern Tour which would take them from KL to Taiping to Prai to Penang to Perlis and back down to Ipoh before returning to the Klang Valley.

We thought it would be great to hold a tabletop gaming exhibition to introduce tabletop games - boardgames, card games and role-playing games - to the students of this university and the local community. If you remember I even once ran Mini Six for one of my classes last semester as a speaking exercise.

Welcome to the PFI1 college

We were assigned Seminar Room 1 of Tunku Abdul Rahman Residential College.

After proposing the event to the Centre for International Languages, we had the green light to go ahead. With the help of colleagues, we scheduled the Tabletop Games Expo at UniMAP to be held last Friday.

First on the scene

Ain, Irfan and Faezan helped to organise the seminar room before the KakiTabletop crew arrived.

LibreOffice Impress

Meanwhile, I prepped the laptop, projector and the presentation slides.

Darren's ships

We also arrayed the exhibits on the table, like these Star Wars X-Wing Miniature Game pieces.

High fantasy and espionage

Here are my complementary copies of BareBones Fantasy and Covert Ops, both RPGs published in a digest-format by DWD Studios.

Most of what I brung?

A range of RPG books and boardgames I brought. Not much, but regular blog readers might recognise a number of them.

 

Paperminis: Characters from my SWRPG Campaigns

28 March 2017 | Hisham | | Paper Minis, Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

Here are paper miniatures of characters created for my own various Star Wars RPG campaigns for your own use. There is space at their feet on one side of the paperminis to write their names on.

Time is the Hunter characters

L-R: Jax Hunt - human bounty hunter, Iris Helena - human amnesiac

Note: Iris Helena is based on Helena on Orphan Black.

Edged by the Empire characters

L-R: Giin Lawquane - human mercenary, Hondo Pash - human smuggler, Yuzy Pash - human kid, Numa - Twi'lek soldier

Note: Numa is the same Numa that appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and later (after her appearance in this campaign) popped up in Star Wars Rebels.

Modesty Blazing characters

L-R: John Tray'Essek - Trandoshan hired gun/marauder, Qillian Ryn - Trianii bounty hunter/assassin, VAX-11/750 - technician/slicer, Vendrik - Duros spy/infiltrator, Nora Romanova - human smuggler/scoundrel, Darter Kel - Zeltron explorer/scout

Note: VAX-11 body design is based on robots seen in the movie Elysium. Nora's clothes are based on costume from The Dirty Pair anime. All of Darter's weapons and gear are on him even if they are not visible.

Please head on over to my Patreon site for more paper miniature downloads covering many genres. Lots of free PDFs for you to download, print and assemble!

 

Paperminis: KX-series Security Droids

26 March 2017 | Hisham | | Paper Minis, Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

Alan Tudyk made the role of K-2SO the reprogrammed Imperial security droid from Rogue One a memorable one. If you require paper miniatures of him or other KX-series droids for your Star Wars RPG campaign, download and assemble the one I made here.

They are all leaves upon the wind

Click here to download the free KX-series Imperial security droid PDF from Google Drive here.

Please check out my Patreon site for other non-Star Wars paper miniature downloads. Some free PDF sets are readily available too.

 

Paperminis: BB-series Astromech Droids

25 March 2017 | Hisham | | Paper Minis, Role Playing Games, Star Wars
 

BB-8 the spherical rolling astromech unit belonging to Poe Dameron is quite the popular droid. Finally I had gotten around to making paper miniatures of its type of droid for your Star Wars RPG campaign.

Ben Schwartz/Bill Hader voicework non included

Obviously the scale is wrong because a 20-30mm scale football sized figure would not be worth printing out and making into a papermini.

All Night's Black Agents Artwork on the Blog

28 February 2017 | Hisham | | Artwork, Nights Black Agents, Role Playing Games
 

The other RPG campaign I played in more-or-less regularly with the Gamers of Kuala Lumpur crew is Night's Black Agents where we played an group of international freelance agents with contacts with various countries' espionage network who were embroiled in a plot to take over the world. With dogs. Who might be sentient vampires. Also, an infectious hemovirus pathogen.

Here are all the drawings I made for various actual play reports I wrote for the campaign on this blog.

Abraham Von Helsing and Abraham Lincoln the ovcharkas

These were our pets and early warning system, the two Abrahams.

The artist in question might not have been in his or her right mind, but in context this was true.

A banner year

The campaign banner

So many other occurences that I did not during various earlier gmaing sessions before I started writing the play reports, such as...

  • Cable tumbling down Olympus Mons for two sessions -- at least
  • the team breaking Hokusai out of a sushi bar
  • driving with neo-chimpanzee trucker BJ the Bear
  • that time Bishop was sleeved in the neo-corvid morph (a.k.a the "chicken suit") for a reconnaissance mission at the 2309 Mr. Spock asteroid habitat in the Belt which turned into a one-man battle scenario while the others watched remotely from their ship
  • and that one time the team travelled to a protected section at the centre of Mars, discovered a Pandora Gate there and accidentally activated an alien device that gave the red planet a brand new magnetosphere.

Sadly, these happened before I began writing actual play reports in earnest here, so many a detail has been lost into dim memory, like tears in the acid rain. Good times, good times.
