The scenario that came in the boxed set was this one, Buffalo Castle.
You can learn more about the game from its publisher, Flying Buffalo.
Also, I forgot about Grimtooth's Traps. Man, I had a bunch of those.
Gunnar defended himself with great courage, and wounded eight more so severely that many of them barely lived. He kept on fighting until exhaustion brought him down. His enemies then dealt him many terrible wounds, but even then he got away from them and held them at bay for a long time.
But in the end they killed him.Now obviously I know that the sagas don't have paragraph breaks, and this one is the work of some modern translator, but damn.
No one's got time to be doing any serious self-evaluation when a squadron of wizards, cyborgs and Iron Fist cosplayers on pedal-powered gyrocopters are closing in on a mutant crab man with a laser (excuse me: lazor) gun riding on the back of a giant vampire bat and the death rays and magic arrows and hails of machine-gun fire are flying thick and fast.Now, that sounds like an absolute blast, but there's a part of me that wonders whether in fact that scene would be at all fun to run or play or whether it would just be a tedious mathfest.

goblins pile on a poor hapless PC and an eagle signally fails to help.
|I may just think that because of the hair.|
|Those weird areas of shadow on his chest are|
even where the dragon's mark would be.
|Right down to the little ballet slippers!|
|The pose looks like Shaman from Alpha Flight, but a girl?|
In the beginning, 800 million years ago ...OK, squire, I'm going to stop you right there.
|In total honesty, it is easier for me to believe that the God of Ninjas|
plays the guitar in a heavy metal band than to believe that
he wears a necktie. It's like eleventy million years in the future.
NINJA: "I want to stop at a weapon shop. I need a sword and some throwing stars."
DRAKE: "Thermal drake [in response to an earlier question], and all I want is some food and a bullwhip."
[They shop for a bit]
ADVENTURERS: "Okay, now let's go get a drink."
FATE: [The GM] Holding the map of Terra open, "Which bar will you go to?"
ADVENTURERS: Choosing a tavern they say "There, the Blind Owl. We will walk up to the bar and order three large milks in dirty glasses."
DRAKE: "I'll take mine with a broken straw."
[The GM rolls some dice and whatnot]
HALFHAN: [The GM, speaking as the bartender] "Well, three milks it is. Hey, you guys looking for an adventure?" Whispering, "I know of a cave where a paradrake lives. The paradrake is guarding a temple or something. I'm not sure exactly what."
MAGE/NINJA: In unison, "Oh yeah!"If you don't think "three large milks in dirty glasses!" "And I'll take mine with a broken straw" is legitimately funny, I don't think we have a lot in common. And I'm a big fan of that "hey, you guys looking for an adventure?" to "Oh yeah!" as well.
|Behold its arcane majesty.|
Thee I invoke, Serpent of the Deep!
Thee I invoke, NINNGHIZHIDDA, Horned Serpent of the Deep!
Thee I invoke, Plumed Serpent of the Deep!
NINNGHIZHIDDA!You could give me twenty tries, and I'd never come up with Ninnghizhidda, Plumed and/or Horned Serpent of the Deep. And I like to think I'm good at names.
