The Hammers of August

The Hammers Of August

A Time Travel Scenario for the TimeWatch RPG
(Which ships to kickstarter backers in the future)

Berlin, 1933, August.
Hitler and his Nazi's are presenting the Summer Olympics.

At TimeWatch Headquarters a massive anomaly has been detected.
Someone managed to kill Hitler and change the course of
history with major negative consequences resulting in a 
global nuclear war in 1960.

Your team of Time Agents has to fix the problem before your
timeline is wiped from existence.

Your only clue, a newspaper from the day after stating that the
culprits were the German Gold and Silver medalists in the Hammer Throw

Find out why the Time Agents assigned to prevent such 
events failed, and swing the timeline back onto course.

(Any resemblance to any real or imagined time travel rpg scenarios is purely a manifestation of random time distortion and should be treated as deja vu. TimeWatch by Pelgrane Press will indeed ship to KickStarter backers in the future. And no, I am not writing this scenario. I have something else planned. Mwahahahahahaha!)

There you go Stu, something a bit different than I bet you were expecting.

In response to Stu Rat's comment to the Something Wicked post.


The Role-Playing Game

The year is 1870 and your hearty band of railroad workers
is facing their toughest challenge yet. You've braved the 
elements, the freezing cold, the scorching heat, wind, rain,
storms. You've survived landslides, cave-ins, and accidents
of all kinds. But nothing prepared you for the horror you
now face. You and your crew are fighting for your very
jobs against the nightmare that is mechanization!
The mighty steam hammer has come to take yer jerbs!

In JOHN HENRY! - The Role-Playing Game players take
on the roles of railroad workers with special talents and
skills, working together to beat back the tides of progress.

Classes include Steel Drivers - the class of JOHN HENRY himself!
Montebancs, Thieves, Prospectors, Cooks, and others.

So pick up your copy today and SWING THE HAMMER.

Stu, your comment had me howling. Great response I could not resist posting about. Sorry to say, nope this wasn't what the clue is about, but keep going! If it helps me come up with more fun to write posts, all-the-better!

Something Wicked Cool This Way Comes

I have officially commissioned something special for me and my gaming group. Completion of the work and delivery will resolve with the unveiling toward the mid to later part of January 2015. I won't spill the beans yet, however I will drop some clues along the way.

Here is the first clue:    SWING THE HAMMER
