GURPS: Flight 13 01 â€“ 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 Game: GURPS by Steve Jackson and friends. The adventure is Flight 13 written by W.G. Armintrout.
Flight 13 intro is by Nick Marsh, featuring the track Twilight Deep Zone by forever_young, used under licence.
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.
Mark (Riddles): Sid James
Amelia: Dr Melissa Courtenay

Nice! Looking forward to this.April 27, 2015 at 8:13 pm #648892
I’m a little concerned that some people may find this adventure rather too horrific, so please take note of the following warning:
This recording is so scary it’s guaranteed to make you wee yourself a bit *

Garth Marenghi would be proud.April 28, 2015 at 5:30 pm #648896
The scariest bit was the lost child. Nick went all ‘Evil Dead’ at the end there. 😀
Great stuff!April 28, 2015 at 5:48 pm #648897
Looking at it again, so long after it was released, Flight 13 had a really poor cover, didn’t it? Not exactly screaming horror and excitement at me.April 28, 2015 at 8:32 pm #648898Lockhart

Does…does the audio repeat from the beginning at the middle point of the recording for anyone else? Did my download mess up or something?April 28, 2015 at 8:47 pm #648899
Mine is fine. Maybe try redownloading?April 28, 2015 at 9:25 pm #648900
Mine’s fine too.
I agree about the scenario cover. It’s not terribly gripping.April 29, 2015 at 2:52 am #648901Lockhart

It actually seems like the glitch was audio from the middle playing at the beginning…or something…and likely caused by downloading to my phone where I have to manually resume every time the app times out. in any event, still was able to listen to majority of it and looking forward to more.April 29, 2015 at 1:18 pm #648902
Session two tonight! Nails have been bitten to the quick in anticipation.April 29, 2015 at 2:01 pm #648903
Great stuff. Thoroughly liked all the characters. There was true terror through the involvement of children in a number of scenes. I loved the Dreamweaver’s way of solving problems with his unending supply of books. I wonder if there will be a battle of the bands between Bad Grip and Grip Shaft?
My full plate helm is doffed to Sid James for his creative manner of getting some arms and armour onto the plane.April 29, 2015 at 11:03 pm #648904lordof1

Ahh, Grip Shaft 🙂
The dreamweaver did have some creative solutions to, uh, problems of his own making in this particular episode…
