Mrs. Frieda’s Halfway Home Session 2 – Let’s Go to the Movies!

Tinseltown

It’s Sunday at the Halfway House, and that means two things:

  1. Some boring missionaries from the LDS Church are going to come and give a short service
  2. The rest of the day is fairly open to whatever you want to do  (LAZY SUNDAY!)

The missionaries at the Troy Ward have just switched out recently, and the new guy appears to be vastly different from the previous ones.  That doesn’t mean that the kids are going to treat him any differently, though.

Following a very unusual service, the kids decide what to do with their day.  It turns out that Emma just heard about a new movie coming out, and she’s gotta see it now.

SAFE – 3 Little Bros and the Big Bad Carl

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS HERE IS APRIL FOOLS POST

So a couple months ago, we wanted to do a session, but had no ideas for what to play.  Alex told me to make something up on the spot.  I had no idea what to do, so he proposed something about holding out in an apartment against a zombie apocalypse.  I was all for that, so we made some characters.  What I didn’t realize was that they made a bunch of fraternity brothers.  From there, everything went crazy.

Mrs. Frieda’s Halfway Home Session 1 – Manny’s First Day

We’ve talked about Monsters and Other Childish Things time and time again on The Drunk and The Ugly because it is my favorite RPG and because we play it very often. In spite of all that, we have yet to post a session of it.  Until now.

A few weeks ago, our friend Nate (the guy who’s hosting this server) finally got his first set of dice ever, despite how he’s been gaming for over 10 years. Understandably, he wanted a medium to use them in. The Road Trip crew was unavailable and none of us really had anything prepared, so Nate wrote up a one-shot setting in about an hour. This setting was Mrs. Frieda’s Home for Terrible Freakish Children, and ended up becoming sort of a side campaign that is more flexible player-wise, as it’s a fixed position with lots of children, so kids can jump in and out as they need to.

In a nutshell, Mrs. Frieda’s Halfway Home for Children (its official name) is a halfway home for children taken from abusive homes. Why has it gotten the reputation that it has? Because most of the children here responded to the abuse in their homes with abuse of their own. Everyone has their own reasons for being here, and most of them are never going to leave this place with a new family. While everyone has secrets to hide, some kids have worse secrets than others: Some kids have “special friends” that would freak out everyone in the city, and others are slowly transforming into eagles. Not everyone has these kinds of problems, mind you, but a few kids within this establishment do. Mrs. Frieda’s is about the life and times of these children.

Engine Heart: The Tricentennial – Session 1

Following a duration of wandering through the wastes, looking for any human life, APA079X has finally made his way back to DC to get new orders from the FBI main office.  He crosses the border into the District and is greeted with. . . flags?  Why are there flags everywhere?  What’s going on at the Smithsonian?  Why won’t this drilling robot shut the hell up?
