Monday Game Cancellation

Due to a scheduling conflict, Rhul: Conquest of the New World will notbe meeting Monday. We will resume our regular schedule with Warlords of Aros on Monday, April 17. See you all next time.


All for One, and One for All!

If you missed the game session last night, you missed our official announcement of our latest game world.  Once Warlords of Aros comes to an explosive ending this summer, you will be transported back in time to a world that never was.  To 17th-Century France.

The year is 1636 and France is a troubled nation.

A great and terrible evil gnaws at its core.

Darkness stalks the land.

All that stands between chaos and order…

…are the King’s Musketeers.

This is the world of All For One: Régime Diabolique, a world of epic swashbuckling adventure and white knuckle horror.  You are members of King Louis XIII’s elite guard, the musketeers.  In addition to the wild intrigues of the royal court, and the machinations of the scheming Cardinal Richelieu, your duty is to protect the throne from dread horrors only whispered about.  Werewolves, vampires, witches, and other fiends stalk the land, preying on the weak, the innocent, and the naive.  Everyone says there is no such thing as monsters.  You know better, monsieur!

Your characters are all members of the King’s Musketeers.  You might be a dashing duelist, whose wit is as sharp as his blade.  Or perhaps you will be an aspiring nobleman, playing the Great Game of intrigue in the royal courts against foes both seen and unseen.  Maybe you will choose to be a spy for his majesty, ferreting out threats from within as well as without France.  You could be an academic, or a scarred veteran of the Thirty Year War.  Or perhaps you will choose an even riskier coarse, as an alchemist, a gadgeteer, or a master of the sorcerous arts.

All For One: Régime Diabolique is a fantastic new game from our friends at Triple Ace Games.  It is written by Paul “Wiggy” Wade Williams, who has many savage worlds to his credit, including Slipstream, Hellfrost, and (my personal favorite) the Savage World of Solomon Kane.

So get ready to strap on your rapier, don your tabard, and hoist a glass in honor of the King.  But better bring along some holy water and wolfsbane…just in case.
