Eclipse Phase: Parole Hearing

You wake up in a loud room, lit by low red lights. You can’t move. You can barely feel your body. It’s hard to breath. The last thing you remember is a prison doc telling you to count back from ten as they slipped the ego probes onto your head. A silhouette emerges from the red. “This is your parole hearing. If you are willing to kill monsters to your last breath then we will commute your sentence. If that sounds like too much work, or you are too frightened, we’ll leave your egos in cold storage as we abandon this rock. Make your choice.”
An Eclipse Phase one shot, set during the Fall.

Atomic Robo: What In The World Is Dr. Dinosaur Doing?

Aaron ran another Atomic Robo one shot for the RPPR patreon backers. If you like to hear more from Role Playing Public Radio you can listen to their discussion based gaming theory podcast, or their actual play podcast by clicking on the links provided. You can also read the Atomic Robo comics on their website!
Anyway; here’s the plot hook.

The eccentric and unpredictable Dr. Dinosaur has long been a pain in the collective backside of the scientific community. For over two decades he has constantly makes threats to destroy scientific facilities (such as the LHC at CERN). Though largely ineffective (and usually a victim of his own insane plans or Tesladyne interference), the sanity-challenged sauropod has seemingly completed a series of fairly complicated heists in the last few months. These thefts have included bio-samples from a Harvard genetics lab, outdated industrial capacitors from a Edision Electrical junkyard and oddly enough an entire truckload of Cherry Coke from a Mid-Western bottling plant. Oddly enough, the Doctor has managed to slip in and complete his crimes almost completely undetected. The only evidence is security footage that seemingly is ignored until it is reviewed the next day. Unsure of what Dr. Dinosaur plans to do with these thefts but aware that it could spell disaster when utilized with his unique brand of ‘science’, the intrepid action scientists of Tesladyne have been dispatched to track down the mad lizard and stop his latest experiments.

Raymonds attempt at the June writing challenge!

At the beginning of every month we we issue a writing challenge to all our friends and fans.

air acrid. heavy with gun smoke. burning rubber, plastic, copper. ozone. heat. blood.

screams ringing out. cries for help. wailing. explosions. full automatic weapons fire, passing.

The sky is red, sunset closing in. Black streaks breakup the rusty sky. A sharp edged gunship circles the city, it is predatory. none will escape while it lingers. The outsiders seek to destroy Asylum.

“Husni, I found Mother!” Sibling, Dana. Voice loud, strained. Origin-Caretaker-Mother must be injured. I must run.

Glass crunches and breaks under feet. gravel, debris, twisted burning steel; none of these will stop me. Dana, crouching. armoured skin intact. Holding Mother.

[WARNING! memory recursion!]

[DISMISS]

Mother. Caretaker. Teacher. Before thought; Mother already loved us. Before awakening; Mother nurtured us. Before…[WARNING! TRAUMA RISK!]…conception; Origin.

“Is she okay?” my voice is strained. I feel fear. new fear. fear of loss.

Dana speaks swiftly. words fight back emotion. “She is having trouble breathing. there is blood in her mouth. I think her bones are broken.” Dana’s head turns. golden eyes focusing on my face. We look so similar. our shells are hand made though, minor imperfections. variance creates individuality. strange. detail notation not needed. coping mechanism?

I kneel. I take mothers hand. it is shaking. I can feel her pulse. if I had more medical knowledge I could save her. If i had been built to heal. if my hands had greater precision. there must be a way. thoughts. streaming. speed. consciousness. rampant cognition. runaway thinking.

words find sound and form before restraint can catch them. is this a fault? “Don’t end. Don’t die. we need you! The outsiders will kill us…we don’t know where to go?” [WARNING!] am I faulty? why can’t i save Origin! anger. frustration.

damage. pavement cracked. support skeleton in left hand fractured. should disable finger servos. won’t. should disable pain. can’t.

Dana speaks, voice soft. “don’t die. don’t die. please.” speech segment continues. decays into dry weeping. mother grows cold. we wait. we wait. help us.
