Weirder Stuff, Klax and my hack of StarCluster 4 for Stranger Thingsish play, has been great fun! Kids between fifth and sixth gradee -summer vacation - find a girl their age sporting a shaved head and a smock, and a one-eyed teddy bear, in their tree house. many-jawed carnivores and a crew from some government funded research company are looking for her. The players so far have loved getting into the kid mindset and have been doing remarkably. Tonight they took down two armed security men from the research company looking for "the Director's ward" with sling shots and their own drug syringes. They dragged them on sleds into an old cowboy-days mine and interrogated them, using a Darth Vader voice modulator - neither guy had seen Star Wars and were spooked! It was great fun!
