Hangman: Operation Rising Tide
In the previous play report for Night’s Black Agents, I felt I had to delay a conclusion much more than I would have liked. This ended up making the narrative hard to follow and caused a few problems with how “overdone” the operation felt. Thankfully on my second session and with all of the players present, I was able to fix that to create a fairly action orientated scenario. In many ways, I feel this would have been a much better “opening” to the game than Awakened Dragon, but hindsight is always 20/20. This operation began more “In medias res” to get the action flowing and the players immediately invested in what was going on.
It turns out trying to infiltrate ships used by supernatural monsters to smuggle people around Europe is pretty tricky. Especially when you infiltrate the place as a chef using a cover identity, but not have much actual infiltration when it comes to sneaking off that same ship….
