Topic: Fear The Con
Earlier, I blogged about how I felt my game went at Saturday's Fear The Con in Missouri. Here's what my players had to say...
Chris, who played The Teacher:
"Aron 's game And A Little Child Shall Eat Them... insane zombie apocalypse frenzy. Now I know why he chooses to call himself Evil Bastard on his blog. A woman breastfeeding in a diner gets her chest torn out in the opening sequence from a zombified baby that launches itself at one of our players after growling black ooze from its mouth. Much blood was shed. One fell valiantly and the rest escaped to fight another day."
Josh, who played The Accountant:
"Third session was EvilBastard's All Flesh Must Be Eaten. His deadpan delivery of scenes of abject horror absolutely made the game. An electronics salesman dragged a zombified eight-year-old into a diner's freezer by her pigtails. An accountant (me) took out a crazed zombie baby with a desperate but well-placed throw of a sugar shaker. For a while, the standard anti-zombie weapon was a frying pan. The game felt like it really could have been a zombie movie, thanks to EvilBastard and the other excellent players at the table."
I get a kick out of people thanking the "EvilBastard." It sounds so wrong, but it feels so right!
James, who played The Marine (comment added 03/13/2008):
"I was the zombiefied marine, and I would have been more pleased to no end (don't analyze my grammar too closely) if I could have brought someone down with me. I guess there's always next Fear the Con"
I have to confess, James, that I had hoped your character would put the chomp on a couple of your compatriots. Really, it would have been GREAT to have a whole player-versus-player bloodbath at the end of the game.
Maybe next year?
The Other James, who played The Farmer (comment added 03/14/2008):
"Thanks for the great game at the Con. It was a whole lot of fun. And I'm still impressed with how quickly and easily you immersed us in the world you created."
Glad you enjoyed, James. It was a lot of fun to run!
