Gauntlet City Limits Revue, pt. 2

Gauntlet City Limits Revue, pt. 2

Over two years ago, I started the living campaign of Gauntlet City Limits. It's been a fun way to play lots of new and interesting RPGs with the Gauntlet and friends, to have some cross-overs of characters and places, and feel like we were collaborating to make a fascinating new place together. I have had a very special time playing with you in so many of these games. I've decided to stop running the Gauntlet City Limits series and focus on other projects. But like most things I do, I want to go out with a bang. That's where all of you come in! This is the first of two sessions of the Googly-Eyed Primetime Puppet Show RPG, (which is the Muppet Show RPG with the serial numbers filed off). The concept for this GEPPS game pair is a GCL Revue. I'll be creating puppet versions of the most interesting / amusing / memorable characters from all the Gauntlet City Limits games to mix and match them in a zany series of sketches in set pieces inspired by previous game sessions. It's' a big blow out love-letter to all the fun we've had in GCL.

Being able to attend both sessions is not required. You must RSVP to each session you wish to attend. This series will be two one-shots set in the world of Sidereal Tenets.

We will abide by The Gauntlet’s Inclusivity Policy.

Gaunt Marches | A Narrow Way

Gaunt Marches | A Narrow Way

Each year, the folk of the 1000 Sloughs region mark the height of summer with a time of fasting, self-sacrifice, and mortification of the flesh. Few people love these observances, but each year, for either piety or payment, at least a few people undertake the purity rites on behalf of their communities. On the night the yearly fasts begin, an apprentice calls down doom on his master and an imp invades the languid (and humid) peace and quiet of Goatbridge town. An elementalist confesses his sins, a priest drives away an undead swarm, a mage of winter gains a burning scar, a shapeshifter keeps a secret, and a kobold slays a fiend.
