80's Cartoon side kicks (Bumble Bee)

So I ran the 80's Cartoon Extraganza at Origins and Con on the Cob this year. Both games went very well for me. The premise was that the heroes from famous 80's cartoons were kidnapped and the side kicks had to band together to rescue them. Since I might run this again I won't spoil the game with details but it mostly involved fighting bad guy cartoons and 80's trivia!

The characters were all Novice made with Necessary Evil powers. All the characters have AB: Super Powers and took Super Karma for the extra 5 PPs. A couple of them have 5 XP so I could give them an extra 5 Power Points. So I present them here for your (dis)approval in alphabetical order:

Bumble Bee

Young Transformer
Novice (5 XP)
Bumble Bee is the youngest and most energetic of the Autobots. A sentient race of transformable vehicles. He turns into a 1952 VW Beetle. He's got a lot of heart in that little frame!

Savage Update

Well, it's certainly been a while since I posted here. That's mostly because no one was reading it... in fact, even my own players are too lazy to check here. So, if any of my players read this I will give you a green benny for our next game! Just don't tell any of the others so I can see who read this. :-)

Anywho, Savage gaming continues. We will be concluding our Savage Serenity: Season 2 campaign next month. We will then start Slipstream or a second Shaintar group.

We are also finishing up my Golden Age of Superheroes mini-campaign. Most of those players will end up in Slipstream or the 2nd Shaintar group as well.

We will start a Necropolis mini-campaign heading into winter and if we like it enough it will turn into a full blown campaign using the Plot Points.

And of course, I am still running Savage Worlds Showdowns occasionally (Star Wars most recently and Rippers next week). We are also playing Ravaged Earth at my local Game Store once a month.

So here is the gaming schedule for the rest of October. Hopefully, someone from my gaming groups will find it useful.

Sunday, October 19th - Ravaged Earth (Gamer's Haven)

Monday, October 20th - Golden Age of Super Heroes (Oblivion)

Tuesday, October 21st - Rippers, the Horror Wars (Showdown)

Monday, October 27th - Shaintar, Band of the Hand
