    Trooper Specializations

    This hack brought to you by The Hand. Specializations will be allowed in Abbatoir until I decide they are jacking up my sessions (i.e. keeping troopers alive). :) Specializations Specialties are specific occupations held by a trooper. Any Trooper can choose to use a successful development roll to train in...

    Planet Rembrandt

    Shot opens on the planet Terra, pulling back as a flag bearing a winged skull fades into the background. "The Terran Expeditionary Force keeps this planet safe from the threats of the universe!" Several mug-shots of horrific looking alien species flash across the screen. "The Cairntu! The Conzu! The Freemen!...

    Planet Cezanne

    Brigadier Officers Banquet Brigadier Whitherspoon welcomes his officers to the 87th annual officers banquet aboard the Cosmic Nomad, and hopes you enjoy these rare and dangerous delicacies plucked from the surface of Planet Cezanne.

    Planet Klimt

    Lt. Colonel Winterbright Operations on Planet Klimt initiated as planned. The Terran forces descended en-masse to the surface and advanced towards the estimated capital of the dominant native civilization. The 3:14 held the bulk of the center and conducted the primary offensive objectives, while the 3:16 was divided to cover...

    Premise

    A Science Fiction setting where everyone plays members of the elite 3:16th Expeditionary Force. This military force left Terra over 10,000 strong many years ago with an explicit mission.

    Their whole mission was to fight, and defeat, everything in the Universe that they could find. Alien civilizations, intelligences and life of any kind were to be wiped out to protect the future safety of the people home on Terra. Threats were to be neutralized at their source.

    Terra is a prosperous place. No one works any more and there is no disease, no hate and no crime or trouble. People are sterile and have to seek the permission of the Terran Council to have children.Successful applicants have medical modifications made that allow for procreation and the children themselves are sterilized at the onset of puberty. They leave childish things behind them and become a citizen of Terra. Life expectancy is now essentially a meaningless statistic. How long do you want to live for? You only leave this life when you want to, and who would want to?


    Paradise is reality.
    When the Council formed the Expeditionary Forces they found it easy to recruit. After all they offered a life of excitement and adventure. See the cosmos, travel and live life to the full. Don’t drop yourself in a suicide booth, serve your fellow Terrans by joining the Force. Child permits were raised as necessary to meet the demand, and everyone rejoiced in the plan.

    Later recruiting posters featured wholesome troopers drinking cocktails on a cosmic beach on the edge of known space – an ideal that many wanted to live. Terrans had a taste for this glamourous promise. So they sought adventure in the Force.
    For years they have recruited Terrans for the Expeditionary Forces and sent troopers out into space. The players all play characters that joined the elite 3:16th unit. The 16th Brigade of the 3rd Army.
    These characters will experience a series of events strung across the vastness of the cosmos. And perhaps one day they will return to Terra.
    That is 3:16.

     

    Style of play

     

    Terra’s plan is to kill every living thing in the Universe to protect the home world. See where your tour of duty in the 3:16th Expeditionary Force takes you and your friends. Revel in the kill-happy machismo and enjoy a campaign of Carnage Amongst The Stars.

    3:16 is a Science-Fiction role-playing game about Carnage Amongst The Stars.

    • Take your squad of kill-happy Troopers and annihilate bugs!
    • Low preparation, elegant game system.
    • Delivers developing campaign play.
    • Lavishly illustrated and designed book.
    • Winner of a High Ronny Award for Games Design for the original version.

    Just a quick note on a rule that I unintentionally fudged.

    When the aliens roll a success and score kills on the Troopers, only those that either failed or rolled equal to or less than them take a hit. Those that succeeded with a higher number take no damage.

    Good session yesterday, thanks for coming guys! We had a short session and managed to clear the mission in a couple hours. The aliens in this mission were a bit less defined, partly because I had put less pre-time into them, and partly because they were sort of a back-drop to the mission itself. But now that the insubordinate smart-bomb has been returned to to the 3:16 for court martial, it's likely that the troopers will need to re-visit planet Picasso and eradicate the amphibian menace.

    Keep an eye on the game profile for update on the next planned session.

    So after a short discussion tonight, we're going to run this line for another week or two, then change gears to the "So Few" extension of 3:16. "So Few" is the space-fighter combat set using the same setting and mechanics as the orginal. Players take the role of combat Terran Navy pilots battling the alien menaces in spiral arms, black holes, and exotic nebulas along side the 3:16 Terran Expeditionary Force as they burn their way through the universe.

    Session five went awesome, even with just two Troopers on hand. We had a great time with very little prep involved. I am actually disappointed that as GM, I haven't managed to kill any Troopers in combat yet, although I was damn near to ghosting Trooper Harp last week. I was a hairs breath away from a fumbled grenade towards success, but trooper carnage was snapped from me at the last moment! NOOOOO!

    Still, the aliens continue to get deadlier as the Troopers get stronger, and as ranks rise, I will get additional threat tokens per-player to throw out as well.

    I'm posting a list of assets to the table, as it seems most people forget they have certain moves at their disposal, such as a post-success range movement, or taking a fail to cancel any following successes.

    Corporal Chiri did not recover from the injuries sustained in the assault on Planet Klimt, and has been placed in long-term storage until his return to Terra can be arranged, along with the 1,482 other troopers waiting for a ride home.

    Put your mitts together for Corporal Harp, the new NCOSIC of Klondikes Kodiaks!

    We are wrapping up this particular game thread. We will all round up on the next scheduled date, and Muldoon will take the GM seat for the last session.

    I've closed the game for registration and cleaned out any players/characters that never made a showing. Good housekeeping.
