The Pangaea campaign turned out to be a total blast. I was eagerly looking forward to running this campaign for a variety of reasons. First, I had a ridiculous amount of fun running the Battlestar Galactica campaign ("Ragnar Rock") and was more than ready to run another Cortex game. Second, Pangaea was my first fully homebrew setting and I was looking forward to seeing what the players would do in a fantasy Cortex setting. If I have any complaints at all it's with just how vicious the players were in this campaign. Seriously. I told them the antediluvian world would be harsh and violent but I think they took to the "harsh" and "violent" aspects a little too well.
In the first fifteen minutes of the first session our sweet, lovable Ally's character (Jobina) had engaged in an act of almost but not quite prostitution, followed by setting fire to two separate sets of people and thus the whole inn. Melissa's character (Beckah) had likewise subdued and tortured her target for information and was prepared to do more if she hadn't been interrupted.
I mean, Yikes.
Still and all we had an absolutely fantastic time. Definitely one of our more enjoyable campaigns.
Our latest incomplete cortex campaign set in Slaughter, Louisiana where the dead have risen to feast on the living! Yeah, that's right. A zombie campaign!
Also, yes. There really is a town called Slaughter down here in cajun country. Don't ask me how it got that name, I haven't a clue.
The campaign proved to be a real action packed one, as we've come to expect from Matthew since he got his hands on the Cortex system. His talent for throwing plot twists and all manner of unexpected little surprises has us all nearly as stressed out as our characters. Rita and Alice have both barely avoided going loony tunes from all the freaky things they've been exposed to and my own character Charley very nearly got herself eaten in the last session.
The campaign rocked and I loved it! Unfortunately health issues forced a hiatus on our gaming weekend for a while and we've yet to get back to this one.
