Actual Play Roundup: Unicorn vs Death (GPNW 2014)

Got to play two great games of Microscope Union at Go Play NW:

  • Revolutionary Zero — Bringing down society as we know it. Let she who is without sin throw the first plague.?
  • Oathbreaker — Magi, faerie courts and unicorns (well, one unicorn) fighting Death for the soul of a mortal.?

Pat, Feiya and Tim also played Union on Sunday, but they made a family tree (ahem) of squirrels. Yes, squirrels. Watership Down-style, but with squirrels. I seethe in jealousy. If I had played I would have made a bad-boy squirrel named Chestnut, because he’s tough on the outside but has a heart of gold…

I was so busy playing Microscope Union that I didn’t play any Kingdom (weep) but Orion and company carried the torch. Their Kingdom was a space station high school, complete with alien students like a hedonistic slime mold who was a bad influence on the other kids. Probably smoking in the bathroom, stuff like that, as hedonistic slime molds do.
