DDC 2007: Walls Crumble, Honor Endures

DDC is next month, and once again, the Jade Lantern is co-hosting an event. The extended description follows:

Walls Crumble, Honor Endures

In the late summer of the 15th year of the 17th Hantei Emperor, Toma Sieko, daimyo of the Iron Cobra, pressed his clan’s advantage against Makira Toji, the aging daimyo of Raven Clan. With the siege of Kyuden Raven underway, Toji-sama comes to terms with the fate of his Clan.

What do loyal samurai do when surrounded without by a fierce enemy, and weighed down within by an incompetent lord?

Type: RPG
System: Samurai Tales (Fate)
Time: Saturday, 8:00 PM in 156 for 6 hours
GM: Wayne Ogle and Brian Isikoff
PCs: All characters provided by GM and rules will be taught.
Power Level: Minor Clan Bushi
Variations: historical, non-canonical, Rokugan (L5R)

About this Game: This is primarily a table-top rpg, with live action and strategic elements. The background is historical, non-canonical Rokugan (the L5R setting). Players who enjoy L5R, Bushido, Land of the Crane and other samurai-inspired games should enjoy this event.

Brian Isikoff and Wayne Ogle return to entertain with another epic tale of honor balanced on a razors edge. Sponsored by EndGame, in Oakland, CA and 2d6 Feet in a Random Direction podcast.

    I’m glad everything got sorted out with DunDraCon man. I am really looking forward to gaming with you and Wayne once again. This game sounds like a lot of fun and with a lot of tension. Good stuff to work with. I almost can’t wait the three weeks for it.

    That game was a lot of fun guys. My group and I had a blast. It was fun to hear about our exploits once again in the podcast. I look forward to the game at KublaCon this year.

    In the same vein as the debrief after the SotC game last week, any ideas on things you liked, disliked, or would have added or changed?

    Well, as usual, I’m entirely too tough on myself in critiquing my GMing, post-game. Any game where you can have a majority of 28 players (!) leave happy and entertained is a success.

    That said, given the dynamics of this story especially, I found information management to be a real difficult area for me. With Wayne handled “the other room”, it fell to me to manage 24 – 28 players’ goals.

    I’m looking into some type of short form or the like to help me organize PC actions for the next game we run.
