Oneshot Scenario – Toys VS Aliens

Hello Friends and Gamers,

This is a Scenario for Oneshot – The Simplest RPG.

Have fun!

The flying saucer from Moonbeam Ontario

Description

The world is being invaded by aliens. They’ve used their U.F.O (Universal Freezing Organics) Ray to stop all living creatures from moving. As toys you are not affected and must find a way to save the world before the effects of the ray become permanent.

Starting

The group starts in a large cylindrical white room. There’s a large hatch and a note written in crayon.

I think you’ll do better. Good luck – Sally

There’s a panel next to the door and a small air grate near the ceiling.

Getting out of the room should be easy. Either ask the panel to get out, hotwire it, crawl through the vent or break down the door.

Either way it should all lead to the main control room.

Control Room

Inside the control room there are a lot of people and computer screens.

Just outside the door to the chamber is a little girl holding three heavily armed drones. She seems frozen in place.

There are several adults frozen in a run towards her. They look horrified.

The computer screens seem to indicate that they were experimenting to make sentient drones.

There’s a TV on and it looks like it’s paused but the clock is working normally. If they rewind or look online they’ll see that aliens were spotted entering the solar system a week ago. After several days of trying to contact them, the three motherships took positions around the earth and started their Freeze Ray. It look less than a day for the ray to freeze everyone on the planet. The Phlebotinum Institute accelerated their efforts to make drones sentient barely activating the device before being frozen.

Outside the Lab

Enemies: Aliens and Drones

The game will require the players to figure out where they are and what they want to do. The overall goal should be to turn off the ray, scare off the aliens, or just stop the invasion.

This can be done in a multitude of ways. Let your players be creative. If they need help here are a few options that you can hint at:

  • Gain access to the ships and shut off the ray in hopes humans can fight the aliens off.
  • Find a way to launch nuclear/secret/etc weapons against the aliens.
  • Negotiate with the aliens.
  • Upload virus / trick / etc

No matter what they choose there should be 3 phases to the adventure: Plan, execute plan, and final boss.

Plan

Enemies: Aliens or Drones

In this section they are getting what they need to do their plan. It could be communication equipment, missile codes, etc.

In most cases the Aliens are the villains and anything they plan should include a fight with a few of the aliens. They are small, green, and ride around in flying saucers.

If they need to get into a human facility or negotiate with the aliens, the rogue drones become the main villain. They don’t want to let humans come back. They should only fight 1 or 2 of these.

Execute the plan

Enemies: Aliens or Drones

In this section they have their equipment and must apply the plan. This should be a series of challenges and fights.

Try to throw skills challenges that have an average difficulty of 4 or 5

Final Boss

Enemies: General

The General or Generals (Adjust depending on strength and amount of characters.) and their army want to prevent the characters from succeeding. In this section they must fight their way to the final phase of their plan.

The Dragon at Comicon 2018

Hello My Imaginary Friends,

This was Baby Dragon’s second year at Ottawa Comicon. Her first year was mostly napping and being held by everyone who wanted with a little time on my shoulders.

This year however was filled with cool activities, playing, chasing people, and NOT NAPPING.

Her favourite activity was waving and saying hello to everyone. Other things she enjoyed:

  • Playing with the ATM and making it beep;
  • Fries;
  • Stalking Spiderman;
  • Running away into crowds;
  • Squirting Yogurt or Applesauce in her eye;
  • Climbing and sliding on Papa;
  • Saying hi to every Deadpool;
  • Giggling at Pennywise the clown;
  • Riding on Papa’s shoulders;
  • Pidge, Keith, and Lance;
  • Dancing with her aunt;
  • Grannie; and
  • Yelling Puppy at K9.

She loved hanging out with family

She did eventually nap a little, usually on the way home.

 

I love the picture of her and her grannie.

Overall it was a good year for the Baby… maybe more like Little Dragon.

 

Later Days,

Éric

Denmark’s LEGO

How many of you played with LEGO as a kid? How many of you actually raised your hand reading that?

Personally, I played with Duplo, not LEGO. My other half played with LEGO. We still have a lot of both to pass on to our Dragon, and hopefully she will have as much fun building with it as we did.

Do you want to recapture your joy of LEGO, or if you’ve never lost it, do you want to explore your enjoyment of it further?

Might I suggest travelling to the origin of these super cool toys? Denmark!

Denmark is awesome, and is definitely in my top ten places to visit. There are tons of really cool things to see and do in this country, as well as Legoland. You can contact me to find out more!

Obscure facts about LEGO can be found here.

You can stay and play in a world made of LEGO. Go to this link and admire the amazing pictures of the LEGO creations. Then imagine how much more incredible it would be in person.

If you are interested in booking a trip to Denmark to visit Legoland. You can contact Jennifer Desmarais through Orleans Travel. jennifer.desmarais@orleanstravel.ca
