Monsterhearts 2: St Osana's School for Boys: Second Term (1/3)

Thu, 17 Oct 2019 00:00:00 -0700

Monsterhearts 2: St Osana's School for Boys: Second Term (1/3)

This is the first in a series of three sessions of the Monsterhearts 2 RPG by Avery Alder (https://buriedwithoutceremony.com/monsterhearts) This game is run as part of Gauntlet Hangouts - for more information about the community, and to sign up for games, you can visit https://www.gauntlet-rpg.com/gauntlet-hangouts.html This game is set in St. Osana's School for Boys, a boarding school in North Yorkshire in 1968, and is a loose sequel to my previous game in the same setting. We follow the exploits of four boys from Postgate Upper Fifth, as Autumn fog creeps over the Yorkshire Moors. A lethargic air hangs heavy in the boys' prep room, as Burnley the Ghoul has a brief, intense daydream of his untimely demise. CF the Hollow has a far more enticing dream, lured out on the wiley, windy moors by the enigmatic Isaac Crowther. CF's dream, however, is soon interrupted by the Headmaster's son, Lovelace the Infernal. Lovelace's aloof disdain quickly melts to reveal the hot-blooded passion beneath, and the two share a moment of intimacy in the closet - though perhaps slightly less private than either of them realise. His Highness Karuna Singh the Mortal plans to sneak out of school for an clandestine rendezvous with Burnley, though his plans are delayed when he steps in to act the hero in his lover's place.

Gauntlet Comics: Monsterhearts 2 Super Juvie (3 of 5)

The New Guard, one of New Gauntlet City's premiere super-teams, have opened a new high school for at-risk supers. Ostensibly, it's an academy built to allow veteran supers to teach youngsters how to become heroes. In reality, the New Guard's seed money for the venture came from Optimax Industries, and the corporation went through their own extensive files on metahumans to find the most dangerous students, those students who have failed their psych profiles, and those who had the power to destroy city blocks. Some members of the New Guard wants to train these kids to prevent them from becoming dangerous supervillains. Optimax, it seems, has other plans.
