Well, last night was the first ever playtest of SFBK. I must say, it felt a bit weird playing in a game that I'm one of the designers of. I expect it was similarly weird for Dan, my co-writer, too, but he really stepped up with both his GMing and his portrayal of Kraag, who in no way resembles a member of a fictional warrior race conceived by Gene Roddenbury.
Hats off to the other players, Bill and Nick, who got stuck in and expanded the pre-gens with their RPing.
Highlight? Well, I think it has to be Kraag at the toga party, trying to impress his idol, Princess N'Zala, by brandishing a vibrator that my character, Drunzi, had stolen from a sex shop and suggesting she put it somewhere Not Safe for Work. Yeah, I think y'all know what I mean. Anyway, he rolled the dice and got six failure points, which meant that the haughty N'Zala, the most popular Zarkonian on campus, was distinctly unimpressed by this. First she knocks the hapless Kraag to the ground and then, beckoning her entourage, storms out of Alien House, batting away Harok's offer of one of his 'special cakes' as she goes.
Honourable memtion too for Zlith for releasing the energy he's been storing up through his power manipulation ability to make his head glow on and off and act as a kind of disco light. Epic!
Can't wait for my next game!!
P.S. Apologies folks for taking so long to get SFBK in front of the general role-playing public- I hope to put up a PDF somewhere soon so folks can download that at least while we wait for the book to come out. Apologies also for not getting stuck in on this and other forums: as well as writing SFBK I'm in the middle of moving house so I've been a bit distraced of late. When that's over I'll get chatting with you guys
