Better Angels and The Kerberos Club at SCARAB Game Day

Jon Maness with the SCARAB Gaming Convention ( recently wrote to us about some Arc Dream games that he and his wife Ruby ran at SCARAB Game Day at Firefly Toys and Games. It sounds like they had a great time.

In fact they discussed them on an episode of the SCARAB Swarm Cast.

The Kerberos Club

On the podcast there’s brief discussion of The Kerberos Club (Fate Edition) beginning at 39:00. In an email, Jon wrote:

My wife was able to run Kerberos Club at one of our Game Day events at a local gaming store, and it went over very well. The people who got to play it enjoyed it a lot, and asked if we were bringing it to other conventions and such. I had a few interested folks talk to me about Kerberos Club Savage Worlds as well. … Ruby is a hard sell on most RPGs and especially the Victorian settings, and she is hooked on Kerberos Club. Kudos.

Better Angels

Jon also wrote about running Better Angels:

I ran Better Angels at our Game Day and then at AtomaCon. Both times I ran it, the interest was great. Once we got into the game, everyone seemed to have a great time, and asked where they could get the game, and if I was running it at any other conventions. I had some very lengthy discussions with a couple of folks about all the tasty nuances to Better Angels, and the role-playing aspects. Everyone thought having the player to their right play their demon was a lot of fun and added an interesting challenge to things. Needless to say, things were very brutal in at least one of the games, and we did have somebody who gave in so much, and so often, that his character ended up being dragged to hell by the end of the game. … As a comic book guy, I have really been enjoying Better Angels, and keep imagining the “Deadly Foes of Spider-Man” comic.

In the podcast they talk about Better Angels beginning at 40:38.

“I had a blast. It was wonderful being a completely horrible supervillain.”

“You guys were complete bastards.” “I saved a busload of children!” “You tried. I could see you trying, there.”

“It was amazingly fun.”

Thank you, Jon and Ruby!
