The signup sheet for “The Omega Delivery” (past 3 of the Kestrel series) is now open (link here: https://goo.gl/forms/9dobroD3x5Iqzxns2)
Date: 11 Nov 2017
Venue: Petone Community House (6 Britannia Street, Petone)
Cost: $20 undiscounted/$15 NZLARPs members or other discounts
The plan is to run both an afternoon and an evening session (subject to sufficient interest). If there’s not enough interest for 2 runs then we will go for whichever session was most popular. I will endeavour to cast returning players who want to play the same character in that role where possible. There are also plenty of characters suitable for players who have not played any previous Kestrel games.
Signups will remain open until at least Oct 1
The Omega Delivery, by Tony Milton and AJ Smith, run by Donna Giltrap
Lucky Federal Investigation Agency agents get some great postings. Maybe they’ll travel the galaxy hunting down Freedom Alliance terrorists; seduce co-eds with heroic tales whilst on the milk round; bravely protect Federation citizens from gangster scum; or get close protection duty for a retired President living in luxury on a Greek island.
Unlucky – or out of favour – FIA agents get assignments like Omega Station. It’s in the middle of nowhere. There’s nothing to do; and – with the base’s long-term inhabitants theoretically off limits – nobody to talk to save a few similarly out of favour colleagues.
Really unlucky FIA agents end up somewhere like Omega in a situation like this one. Why worry the base is going to go nuclear in five hours, when you’ll be dead from CO2 poisoning in less than two? And why is the beaten-up freighter just arriving with your regular delivery – and perhaps rescue – not the ship you were expecting?
The Omega Delivery is a fairly downbeat science-fiction game loosely based on an increasingly-distant Joss Whedon TV show. It is set in the Linfarn Universe and a sequel to The Linfarn Run and The Koenig Dead, although no knowledge of previous games is required or expected.
