I Love LA - An AAR for Action! The scenario book for Larger Than Life - Director's Cut.

Action our first scenario book for Large Than Life - Director's Cut, contains 3 full adventures. Each is complete with new Stars, Co-Stars, Big Bads, Femme Fatales, and more. Let's introduce you to one of the Stars of Action.

Cast -
The Gray Raven - Rep 5 Star - Vigilante.
Bank Robber #1 -Rep 3 - Extra - Thief.
Bank Robber #2 - Rep 4 Extra - Thief.
Frankie - Rep 3 Extra - Thief.
Beat Cop - Rep 4 Extra - Police Officer.

Wardrobe - Courtesy of Splintered Light Miniatures.
Music - Randy Newman. I Love LA
Catering - Lil.

A look behind the scenes:
A 2 x 2 foot table was used. Action provides some simple table top mechanics taken from Chain Reaction for the close up action when you want to go right to the action, instead of traveling the board and interacting with PEFs.

The actual robbery inside the bank was done with a Talk the Talk test that the criminal failed badly - resulting in gunfire.

The Raven had been tipped off by his wannabe Love Interest Robin Duncan (also in Action). When Raven activated I wanted him to cut off the getaway car - used a Physical Challenge and passed. As you may know, I needed to set up the success and failure before the Challenge was taken. If Raven would have failed,  he would have crashed into the getaway car with all passengers in both vehicles counting as triggering a Danger Factor 3 Trap (LTL-DV page 58). I use Traps to resolve one-off  chances of damage outside of shooting and melee combat.

Once the car was stopped Activation was rolled and Raven and the criminals went to a one-sided gunfight. Rep 5 has it's advantages.
Once the criminals went Out of the Fight there was nothing left to do but wait for the police to show up.  

Watch for the next AAR featuring the Gray Raven.

Action! Scenario Book for Larger Than Life - Coming soon!

Here's the rough of the cover.

Lights! Camera! Action!
In Larger Than Life – Directors Cut you learned that it all boils down to the Story and we gave you the tools to create them. In Action we’ve taken it a step farther; now we’ve given you three full blown adventures. Each Story comes complete with pre-generated Stars, Co-Stars, Big Bads, and more, but they will work just as well with your own cast.

Story #1 – You’re “Duke” Clayton, world traveling adventurer, and you’re girlfriend Leilani, has been kidnapped by a power crazed villain – and what about Hooni, the Great Squid God?

Story #2 – You’re the Gray Raven – a Vigilante whose current case involves stolen artifacts and murders – not one, but many. You’ll be required to bring your best as you travel south to a Hidden Valley deep in the Peruvian jungle.

Story #3 – It’s Germany 1935 and there’s been a scientist kidnapped. In our 3rd adventure we’ve given you a classic pre-World War II spy story, but with a couple of twists.

Inside you’ll find:

· Three pre-generated Stars that can also be used in your other games.

· New Attributes to further expand your selection of Stars, Co-Stars, and Big Bads.

· New Big Bads and more Minions. 

· New Professions.

· A whole stable of re-usable Grunts. 

· A variety of locations that take you around the world and can also be used again and again.

· All this and more.

Action gives you three complete Stories and loads of new material that can be used over and over in your own Large Than Life games. We could tell you more, but the time for talk is over. It’s time for ….


And what about the Dinosaurs?

Coming later this month!
