Thanks to Graham for a very entertaining game. We almost derailed the plot at the start by getting our truck stuck in a muddy bog!

I congratulate the party by managing to achieve so much, despite me fumbling so often! I'm just thinking now that maybe - given that track record - they should have been a bit worried at the end by me juggling with the chunks of glowing, potentially explosive tech when trying to intimidate our rivals! :)

We played an excellent game of Myriad Song which was run by @GuyMilner
Elina, @Ezio and Becky and I were bounty hunters.
I have wanted to try this system for so long.
Despite appearances it's simple, fun and has a novel style to combat.
We had great fun, great role-playing from my fellow players and, of course, we got our man.. because Sisters are doing it for themselves!

Thanks @GuyMilner, I suspect I am buying this game in print now.
It's free in pdf right now: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/308734/Myriad-Unbound-BUNDLE
Oh and Roll20 AV worked just fine all on it's own...

I have screenshots to add later.

Fun game of a||state with @Stronty Girl, @Whirlmeister, Keary and Dr Moose.

They completed their mission, albeit with a sting in the tale!
It was a great session, and thanks to Dom for his patience when we faffed about at the start. I enjoyed playing "Banksy" the Activist, and now fancy a campaign playing him. It's nice to play a crew who want to do good, rather than just accrue wealth and power.

Being a playtest scenario, we did discover a few foibles... like my Banksy's special equipment contains pamphlets so I can get extra effect when I hand them out to a crowd. But he's illiterate! I wonder what's written on them?!?! 10% discount on your next pizza order. Call Sally for a good time. Obey the North Star Organisers, for they are your friends! :)

@Dom When does the A-State kickstarter launch? I forgot to write that down.

They haven't said yet.

I think I'd have changed one thing last night, and that's the sting with what was found in the dog pen. On reflection, it would have been more dramatically fun that you saved Hosanna only for this to come out the next day when you went to tag the place...

Maybe they are cartoons supporting his causes?

Sunday Slot 3
Dr Who with @Stronty Girl running it and Roger, Debbie and James playing along with me.
We were Martha, Sir Humphrey Appleby, Sarah Jane and Ohila of Karn and we had a lovely non violent and very Whovian adventure that could easily have been any of the non fighty Who story from almost any period.

Really great fun and my last game at North Star 2020, bloody good craic everyone!

Forgot to screenshot until too late, we ran it on Zoom after Google Meet let us down badly.. bad Google.. [Lol]

@Stronty Girl has 3 microphones, not 2!

Yes, Hangouts was not our friend today. We should have used biomorphic resonators, crystals from Metabelis III and psychic paper instead!

Thanks to all for a fun game. The missing person was rescued using the powers of bureaucracy, sonic lipstick, incense and jogging! :)
