Mrs. Wiggy wanted to run Rippers last week, so I knocked up three characters -- detective, holy slayer, and a cursed gypsy.

The adventure began with an invitation to the museum. The detective had helped the curator in the past, and received a free invite to the grand opening of an Egyptian sarcophagus that had beeen discovered in the back of the storage room.

Then the cultists turned up, awaoke the mummy and two huge statues. Cue the first fight. Both statues were destroyed by pistol fire, thanks to the gypsy, who was Ambidextrous and had Two Fisted, but the mummy escaped with his cultist followers.

Cue the chase scene. He tore through London after the cultist's carriage but lost it in the crowd. It didn;t help the git was using barrier spells to block our path, forcing us to destroy sections so we could run through them.

A quick visit back to museum and we had a list of all the guests. When Lord Faversham began odd under our questioning, we decided, being right-minded Rippers, to break into his house. Entering the secret door we found in the book case was a small mistake, as he had to kill a few dangerous lunatic the Lord must havee ben keeping for medical research or something.

Then we found the secret door in the basement. And it all went very wrong. Three Wild Cards got the Drop on the mummy, Lord and Lady Faversham, and a bunch of pale-faced cultists. That's when Mrs. Wiggy unveiled their stats -- one mummy vampire lord cross (WC), two vampire counts (both WCs), and six regular vampires. Well, we put up a fight, eventuelly taking down Lord Faversham in a hail of lead, as well as the lesser vampires, but none of the party survived the encounter.

Mrs. Wiggy apologized for using so many Wild Cards against us, but fun was had and that's all that matters.

Encounter balancing is one of the main points every Savage World GM has to get a feel for.

Three vampire WCs and their followers against 3 heroes sets some kind of record here. Laughing

As long as everyone had fun, even a TPK is not a bad thing. Remember that players of CoC and Paranoia know TPKs EVERY TIME they play...

'Twas her first time as a GM, and I knew it was a one-off. Smile

When I run games for her it's the other way round -- lots of fights, but against weak opponents. She likes to kick butt. Smile
