Death Bringers

Late last night I finally managed to release an RPG campaign book that I've been working on for about six months.

"Death Bringers" is a campaign book for the "3:16 Carnage Amongst the Stars" role playing game. The campaign contains 20 missions on twenty different planets and each mission is broken down into anywhere between 3 and 8 separate combat encounters.

The back cover blurb is...

Death Bringers is a series of twenty pre-programmed combat missions for "3:16 Carnage amongst the Stars"

Each mission centres around destroying all life on an alien world. ALL THREATS TO THE CONTINUANCE OF PARADISE ON EARTH MUST BE ELIMINATED.

Each planet presents a unique challenge with different world wide conditions and a new life form to be eliminated with extreme prejudice.

Each plantary mission contains 3-8 seperate combat encounters building a progressing story as the play moves from encounter to encounter.

The game is available for purchase from

Playing "3:16 Carnage Amongst the Stars"

I started GMing a game of "3:16 Carnage Amongst the Stars" game a good while ago on the RPPG-Geek forums. I took it through the first three missions, then another guy "Howitzer" took over the GMing role and breathed new life into the game.

As a "For Instance" of what this guy has done to the game...

Our characters are inside a massive hurtling asteroid that's been targeted at our home planet. We were in a warship, but it crashed into a massive cavern on the asteroid. Inside we find another smashed up ship from earth. We meet the survivors, only to find ourselves surrounded my beasts of half shadow and half our-imagination.

So these "ghosts" of our former comrades, lost loves and parents slide on up to us ...then attack. Troops in power armour taken out by ghosts! Oh the ignominious-ness of it. My character is left "crippled" by this attack. One of the other troopers is not as bad, he's "a mess".

My character did manage to kill 8 of the alien scum in the process, but he's unlikely to survive another attack. Things are looking grim. Surrounded by aliens. Trapped in an asteroid. No ship, no com' and rapidly running out of friends. Great game :)
