Checkpoint Midnight: Waltz of Treachery (Gauntlet Quarterly, July and August)
You are freelance operatives in a city marked by war and division. You are secret supernatural beings in a world of danger and espionage. You are spies in Cold War Vienna, and this is a story of you pulling off high-stakes missions and juggling conflicting loyalties.
This is a longer playtest of Checkpoint Midnight, a Powered by the Apocalypse game of fantasy spycraft. This series is meant to test character progression and (perhaps) character endgames. If you have played in a previous playtest of Checkpoint Midnight, you can discuss with me bringing back your character from prior sessions for this series!
This is a quarterly series with sessions on Monday evenings (Eastern time) in July and August. A last set of sessions (in the same timeslot) will be posted for September. Players in these sessions will get a first pass at signing up for those.
A slot in the August sessions has been reserved for Jesse Abelman.
Sessions will run three hours. They will be recorded and posted on YouTube (if all players agree). Being able to attend each session is ideal, but not required. You must RSVP to each session you wish to attend.
Aiming for a story of espionage, intrigue, and action, rated PG-13. The X-Card, Open Door Policy, and Lines and Veils will be in use. This event abides by the Gauntlet Community Code of Conduct.
