Notes from an Active Reloaded Campaign

#1 Postby Stampede » Sun Aug 05, 2012 4:08 pm

Hey folks! My players use Google Documents to keep shared notes during the course of our campaigns. I wanted to share their collected notes so far from our current running Hell on Earth game set in Missouri. Feel free to take a look and get an idea of what's happened so far!

Hell on Earth – The Wasted West 2012

Spring, 2097. Starting in Missouri. All of the Documents start with a quick snyposis of what happened in the previous session to help remind everyone what's taken place so far. Previous session synopsis are at the end of the notes.

Begin Notes!

Episode V - When We Last Left Our Heroes - After preparations were made, the Combine invasion force arrived, and the Battle of Moberry commenced. In the end, two of the townsfolk died, but the town’s defenders were victorious. In the aftermath, Jess decided to stay and help the town rebuild, while everyone realized that the nature of the Black Hat’s forces meant that the Combine must have a hidden factory fortress in the area...

Episode IV - When We Last Left Our Heroes - Drugs in the food at dinner saw the entire party imprisoned, to be given to the Combine. Meeting with Harvey in the barn, they all escaped and made their way to the Mayor’s house, convincing him to take a stand. After victory against Harold and his goons in the Battle of the Front Porch, the party’s gear was retrieved. The next day, the town was told of Mayor Morris’s valiant stand against Harold, and seemed relieved to see him gone. Now, the town looks forward in trepidation to the impending arrival of the Combine...

Episode II - When We Last Left Our Heroes - Within Union, the party ran into their friend, Doc Tabernacle. After talking to the owners of Frank’s Sports Bar, they decided to serve as guards on a supply caravan to the farming town of Moberry. A large group of Banditos attempted to hijack the supplies, but they were driven off, and the caravan continued on its way...

Episode I - When We Last Left Our Heroes - Walking across the wastes of Missouri, the party encountered ghosts of a mass suicide church, and defeated a Bandito ambush. Taking one of the low riders, they drove the rest of the way to their destination - the City of Union, along the way they encountered the leader of yet another roadgang, Axel of the Roadpunks. He told the party to say Hi to his mother for him, eventually the party arrived at Union...
