Horselords: Loose Canon

2018

 

can·on1

ˈkanən/


  •  
  • A collection or list of sacred books accepted as genuine.
  • A boisterous, good natured, B-list celebrity bard looking to make a literary name for himself.

 

Initial adventures in this series can be inclusive of players running non-HL classes.

 

The series of games will be based on the published works of an area bard, with a questionable literary style, and will NOT be part of the world’s time frame. Oh, you’ll see what I mean when we play…

 

Players are expected to engage in epic adventure and epic role play.

 

The Loose Canon games will be non-world building games based very loosely on popular culture and from the POV as characters in an awkwardly written book published in the Realms of Annakol universe.

 

Please use the thread below of IC role play outside of scheduled games.

The boisterous bard gathers his papers together with a satisfied grin.

 

Done!

 

Now, to get this bound and distributed!

 

He heads out of his Sunbird Manor apartment and makes his way into the city.

Aruncus steps out of her tent and finds a wrapped package in their campsite inside the walls of Sidonia's castle.

 

She picks it up and looks around for the possible sender. Seeing no one, she carefully unwraps the package to reveal a new book, crisp and clean. The cover is embossed in gold with a line drawing of a horse. The spine is etched with "Horselords: The Complete Story". Curious, she opens the cover and reads a note scrawled inside:

 

Dearest Horselords,

 

Thank you for the inspiration.

 

I hope you enjoy!

 

Best wishes,

 

Canon.

Aruncus settles by the fire with the book. She opens the cover and turns the pages to the first chapter. Here eyes move across the first paragraph and into the second.

 

As she reads, her brow begins to tighten.

 

She pauses and looks down at her modest brown dress.

 

A concerned look appears on her face.

 

She returns to the book and rereads a few sentences.

 

She looks back down at her dress and then back to the book.

 

Her brow furrows with rage and she yells,

 

My neckline does NOT plunge and my bosom does NOT spill forth!!

 

Angered, she continues reading.

Aruncus picks up The Book— it’s now how she refers to it — and again opens it. 

How can it be any worse?

She flips to the next section and begins to read aloud.

Chapter 2: Horselords and the Guardians of the Star Trek Galactica.

A long, long time ago in a galaxy really, really far away the Starship Horselord 1 sets off on its maiden voyage to explore the multiverse.  Equipped with the most stately state-of-the-art AI technology, the Aruncus 5000, the highly trained crew has set off to go where no humanoid has gone before.

Our story begins with the crew receiving a distress signal from a nearby planet…
