Monkeys Took My Jetpack #61: Time Commandos!
Hi, gang! Welcome back!
At long last, here it is—the very first game we Jetpackless had with our own Friendly Neighborhood Trilobite. And what better way to kick things of with such an awesome GM and initiate him (although we didn’t know it yet) into the fold of Monkeys Took My Jetpack? Why, a rollicking
game of Wushu, of course! (Okay, I say that like we actually planned on a Wushu game, but the truth is … the game was impromptu, as I explain in more detail in my opening remarks for the issue.)
I post this now because I recently discovered Daniel Bayn has released Wushu: The Black Belt Edition, and I wanted to promote it in some significant way. Just as our mother podcast, The Gutter Skypes, has a soft spot for Spirit of the Century, so do we have a soft spot for Wushu. Mr. Bayn, if you’re listening, and you ever feel like running a game for some fans who think your game kicks several hundred different kinds of ass with equal aplomb, or just feel like having a chat with same, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You would truly make our year! But I digress…
I encourage, beseech, and ask you with every fiber of my being… If you enjoy this podcast in general, and this episode in particular, run—Don’t walk!—to the above link and get the Wushu Black Belt Edition for yourself. Read it. Play it. Enjoy it. Share your Actual Plays. Share your love for the game. Spread the Wushu Love! And when you find yourself stuck without a player in a key point of your campaign, or just want a diversion from your normal gaming faire … or want to try something different as a system to facilitate the stories you and your players want to collaboratively tell…
Do what we do.
Make it a Wushu night.
Okay, enough of this. You’ve waited for months.
