Argh. Same weekend as Mepacon up in Scranton that I attend twice a year. Otherwise I'd drive out to your neck of the woods.

I'll be running "A Night at the Ptarmigan" The players gather at the Ptarmigan as retired adventurers to choose among 6 adventure vignettes to recall fondly and replay. Their memories aren't always perfect at 80+ years of age and so they have memory bennies to change a scene if something goes "wrong".

I had a chance to play Night at the Ptarmigan a few weeks ago at a local con. Mabon has a really cool concept for a series of adventures with a fun mechanic to really make the scenarios work. If you ever get a chance play it.

Concur: it's a really cool conceit, and I thought it was interesting that we used only 1 bennie through three vignettes, and "realistically" fled the last one, as if we could actually have died (when our reserve of 5 bennies would probably have been enough for all kinds of crazy "No, I remember it *this* way..."). https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Its really funny when someone throws a bennie and the characters argue about the details as their 80-year-old selves!!  Thanks!
