Gamma World StarCraft at GenCon!

The very first thing I got to do at GenCon (after checking into my pimping hotel) was bust out my StarCraft Gamma World variant and play my Gammacore adventure, The Prisoner. It was a blast! Jon, Dave, and all the Canooks were consummate dungeoneers and a pleasure to play with. I look forward to the chance to hang out with them again! Listed below are a few pics I managed to snap when we were chucking the dice, with commentary.

Oh shit! The initial setup. The dungeoneers (we need a better word for a scifi setting, no?)  have landed in the main A. Hanger of the research station BR-715An empty escape vessel, engines running. Dead bodies full of poison and limbs ripped off.
What the fuck happened here?

David Flor (left), Amanda Bellingham (right), Jessica Desilets' hand (far right). The girls are trying to figure out what a Zerg is, I think.

The main power core. Heart of the entire station. It is filled with the unending hordes of Zerg banelings, an infested Terran security gaurd wielding an AK-47 assault rifle, and a timed puzzle: THE FUSION CORE CRYSTALLINE MATRIX.

There's shapes...and timed... and stress.....GAHHHHHHH!!!!!!

The dungeoneers are losing their shit!!!

They would much rather just face the Huge Reaver (center) than have to go through the difficulty of small black triangles. Gammacore tests your skills as a player, and gets you out of your comfort zone. Thank your Dungeon Master for being such a hardass bastard.

Another puzzle?! Are you kidding me?! And with MATH?! Fuuuuuuccccckkkkkkkkk.

Despite their apprehension and hatred of isolinear memory chips, the Computer Core was easily restored.
