They lived!! After landing in Rigel 223 Ash, our four epic adventures: Captain Jacque LePenn, Chief Science Officer Heather Kriel, Medic Donna Trill and Sanitary Engineer 3rd Class Steve Hicks made their way through the jagged pitons and high velocity winds towards the source of their enquiry, a radar reflecting surface revealed by volcanic activity.

They were rewarded after an hours struggle with a garden of 16 square blocks, each made up of a highly dense silicon compound and beset with an alien figure atop, the creatures were of such an inhuman nature that some members of the team forced to reconsider their career choices.

All the statues were of a similar, apparently intelligent race, except for the last two. One depicted a more violent looking species. The other was empty. It was clear from examination that despite their apparent age, the garden of the ancients had been looked after and maintained.

That’s when they discovered the pyramidic temple, lost contact with the ship. were attacked by a Xenomorph, Heather had a six eyed beer belly attach itself to her face, Jaque LePenn was ripped from his Motokatsu-Kyono Combine Exploration suit, Hicks and Donna stripped off, rescued a cocooned LePenn and shot and kicked to death their acid bleeding opponent.

Time to go back to the MKC Petrograd for a sit down meal and some indigestion tablets.

Now I have to plagiarize a sequel !!




Guardians of The Ancients

This friday I’m running a D100 BRP sci-fi game set in the early years of the Zero expansion, for those who have played “Charlie” you get the basic picture; near future sci-fi (Alien, Aliens, Silent Running etc). There’s no direct TOPTA reference, but it’s a start in the right direction.

At the moment this is a very loose idea based on a Traveller scenario I bastardized many years back. If it hits the mark, I shall write it up and put as a free pdf download on the new Burning Car Press site when it’s up and running.

Stay Frosty

TOPTA is not dead. The rules re-write is underway and I’m re-developing the web page. SO watch this space 🙂

Hi again,
Well, so far the conversion to Mini D6 is working out just great. Obviously it’ll require some play testing but so far Mini D6 suits TOPTA down to the ground.
Might; which is physical attacks and hit points of a sort, has been replaced with Psight. All the familiar Psight skills are under here. Obviously when the Agents inhabit their respective cadavers, the cadavers will have Might, purely for working out hit points. Agility becomes Control, and all the physical skills will come under this category as they represent the Agents control of the cadaver.

If you want to understand what I’m talking about better (or at all), I highly recommend you download the game for free and take a look at the Bare Bones addition.

And remember; Worthing, it’s not just a place. It’s a state of mind ☺

Kill them all !!
