Nina’s Nocturne – Part One, Setting the Stage

Going on a Lark

This was my first game of "5150: Back Alleys, Bright Lights" from Two Hour Wargames.  It is a stand alone supplement in the 5150 series of games.  This means that you can use characters, items, even rule mechanics found in other 5150 games in this game and vice versa.  You can also play this game just… Continue reading Going on a Lark

Mother’s Missing Grave, Part One

Staff Sergeant Kate Tipton pursed her lips as she scrolled through the data. Something wasn’t right and it was beginning to irritate her. She looked up from her tablet and gazed out the window. The sunrise was gorgeous, complete with what the ancients called, the “rosy fingers of Dawn,” but upon closer examination she could… Continue reading Mother’s Missing Grave, Part One
