Mrs. Frieda’s Side Stories – Curriculum of Conspiracy: October

We return to Spring Crescent, already in progress. The unstoppable sass of Jingles, Molly, and Emma combined is tearing its way through the Middle School. Predictably, this lands them in Saturday detention.

A Saturday detention in a school ripe with mystery and danger (and teachers who are huge jerks.)

It’s time for the trio to get to the bottom of all of this.

The road trip swung north last session, heading up to Maine to visit some wilderness. There’s a war going on for Pastoral Manor.

Monsters and Other Childish Things – The Grid Playtest

The year is 2070.  The place; Seattle, WA.

In this day and age, computers are built into your clothing, the internet is everywhere, and holograms / augmented reality are a practical interface with technology, rather than a simple novelty.

There was a time when computers were totally and completely responsible for everything we did.  Artificial Intelligence was at our beck and call, managing all that was once done by man.  We were able to relax and work on self-improvement.  If you’ve seen any kind of science fiction film, you know approximately what happens next.  Well okay, things didn’t go full Skynet.  We weren’t THAT unprepared.  There were defenses in place, but likewise, the Artificial Intelligences have that second word for a reason.  Their definite power was removed and, to the casual observer, they were completely destroyed.

Just like that pain in the ass toolbar that you got when you opened that email from the Nigerian prince, the victory by Grid Security was merely a ploy.  Slowly, the remnants of the AI began to surface.  No one’s sure where they’re coming from or why, but one thing’s certain:  They are returning.

Mrs. Frieda’s Halfway Home Session 39 – Birds are Jerks

The fight in the forest rages on. The bird-man and its army of, well, birds, is still threatening the wood sprites. The Spirit of the Forest is still missing. A strange altar has been discovered. And while a tentative truce has been brought up between all of the kids to overcome raging teenage emotions, tensions are still running high.

Can the Frieda’s kids stop the bird threat and rescue the Spirit of the Forest before the sorcerer cult discovers them?

Road Trip Session 20 – Pastoral Manor (Part 1)

The Summer Road Trip continues, now with more Cool Rat! An evil queen was killed, and now the gang is hitting the beach. Things will calm down, if they have anything to say about it. (Hint: they don’t. )

Because the cult is still in motion. And the postcards are still pointing in strange directions. From the beaches of Florida, they must trek north to New England, where strife is in full sway on a country farm.
