8th Dimension Comics and Games, http://www.8thdimensioncomics.com, hosted the introductory event for EVERYVERSE RPG in Houston, Texas.
We played a one-shot - developed by Chief Play Officer, Jim Poland - set in the near future on an Earth-like world, where the players woke as prisoners of an unknown organization, and no explanation for why they were being held. The last thing they could recall was being at a college frat party.
Perhaps, the nice(?) lady in the lab coat would be of help…?
This one-shot was also my initial outing as a GM and it was the first time our Social Media Director, Hadley Swartz, had ever played an RPG. She played the nice(?) lady in the lab coat.
We had a special visitor, too. Douglas, the guide dog, visited while his human played at another table. I think Douglas was prompted to visit by my late husband, the game designer, and one of my doggie walking clients who recently crossed the Rainbow Bridge, to help calm my nerves. Douglas and my recently departed doggie client are both black labs.
A good time… and a lot of snacks… were had by all. Even Douglas enjoyed a carrot.
Many thanks to Jeremy and Annie Bulloch of 8th Dimension Comics and Games for hosting. Please pay them a visit if you are in the area.
