GURPS: Flight 13 01 – Latex Nuns at Lolita High
Separated by many miles, yet brought together through remarkable advances in SCIENCE, the Whartson Hall Aethernauts embark on a journey of nightmarish horror!
Presented, for your consideration:
The sun begins to set over the sleepy English capital of Manchester. Consider its airport. Examine these passengers – caught up in the modern world of iPads, vinyl, and Wimpy burgers.
Dr Melissa Courtenay, talented veterinarian, and outdoorswoman.
Brian Hillman, genial and charming designer.
Sid James, computer nerd, and reenactor.
Darrel Fisher, dreamweaver, and rubbish author.
And one who needs no introduction – Ron Burleigh, lead guitarist of the legendary ‘Bad Grip’ (or was it ‘Grip Shaft’?)
All impatiently clutching their passports and waiting for their flight. Not one of them realises that all hold in their hands one-way tickets… to the Scary Place.
Ladies and Gentlemen. It’s the final boarding call… for Flight 13
If for some reason you’re determined to listen to what approximates for actually playing the game in our group then skip ahead a good ten minutes or so.

The Whartson Hall Aethernauts play through the Google+ Hangouts facility rather than face-to-face in a room. With this level of horror, we simply didn’t dare leave our houses.
