I will be running a Where Heroes Dare game on January 27th at 9AM at Winter War in Champaign, IL. the game will be...
The Curse of the Idol of Doom
Found on a windswept plain in Antarctica a strange unearthly idol made of an unknown substance was being flown to New York when the plane went down in an unexplored region of the Amazon jungle. Can you find and claim the idol for fame and/or fortune before the competition? Look out for the dangers of the Jungle.
Dr. Roboto seeks the statue because he is sure it is made of that rare metal, Unobtanium. With it he could build robots to conquer the world (or at least one of the nicer pieces of it, maybe the French Riveria or somplace else warm, but not too warm). Dr. Roboto is flanked by two of his killer robots, oh and a couple expendable flunkies.
The Master of the Cult of the Green Death seeks the statue so he can contact beings from the Great Beyond who will then give him power (and maybe some more monsters). Here the Master is flanked by two of the Forbidden Worms of Leng and backed up by brain-damaged, I mean devoted followers.
I've been gaming since the 1970's and even wrote some RPG adventures in the 80's for the Judges Guild. It seems that I can only get in miniatures is gaming at cons, but I do regularly play boardgames and RPGs.
