Looking for Players

We are looking for a player to join our tabletop RPG group. We play on Saturday evenings from 6pm to 11ish at my home in the Myers Park/Cascades Park area of Tallahassee, Florida. Our current campaign is a fantasy one using Savage Worlds…a Fast! Furious! Fun! system. We are not really big fans of scripted campaigns, rules lawyering, or power-gaming. We’re pretty much just a group of older gamers that likes to have fun gaming, letting the play tell the story, and sharing a few craft beers as we do. Beginners are welcome!

If you are interested in learning more, shoot an email to infoatfatratgamesdotnet (replacing the italicized at and dot with the appropriate symbols). You can also register with this site and post a reply here. However, due to spammers, if your email and/or name don’t look legit, it may not get approved; the same is true if you have a gmail account, again due to spammers). Lastly, you can head over to the Fat Rat Games Facebook page and post a response or send a message there.

You can also look through the Quail Valley Campaign session recaps to get a good idea of what has happened in the current campaign.

If you’d like to learn a bit more about Savage Worlds, check out the “What is Savage Worlds?” page at Savagepedia or head over to the Pinnacle Entertainment Group website as they are the publishers of Savage Worlds.

Quail Valley Session 18 (SW)

In our last session, the party–which, I suppose, needs a name of some sort–decided to strike out from Presov and explore more of Quail Valley. They set the northern village of Borsod as their travel goal. The four day trip included an attack by wolves, which left Willow badly wounded (but then healed) and having lost her normal cheery edge, and a nighttime attack by a trio of ogres that the group handled easily. They arrived in Borsod and discovered that at least some who reside here might not be the most respecting of law and order, including the law. They also met the local priestess who warmed to them once it was clear that they worked for Baroness Varga and asked for their help with a local problem…which is where we pick up after the break.

As usual, my GM comments are in [brackets and italics]. There are potential spoilers for The Vault of Larin Karr below the break.

Quail Valley Session 17 (SW)

When we last checked in on our heroes, Serena had had her throat slit as Faelan and Raspin helplessly watched. Prior to that, they had accomplished quite a bit: they had rid Presov of another undead menace, had explored more of the Underdark, recovered a good amount of treasure, defeated some orcs and their pet lizard, discovered what was likely orcs with a half-folk in the orc burial cavern, and various miscellaneous stuff. Most all of this while Cailana and Wink were recuperating at the Lonesome Drake. Faelan and Serena were ready to join them at the end of the last session, each ending the session with three wounds. We pick up with Serena getting her new smile after the break.

As usual, my GM comments are in [brackets and italics]. There are potential spoilers for The Vault of Larin Karr as well as the Crucible of Freya below the break.
