====== One Big Episode ====== These are the notes I used to run a buffy oneshot that combined most ideas from the entire series in one episode. The original scenarioi “Who Invited You” was only cthe
#Spring Break and
Prep: - Char sheets - PC Mini’s - PC Map - Drama point stones - Clue cards
===== Intro ===== Read
"Being a one-shot this is a lot more directed. There's wiggle room and hopefully you'll think up stuff I failed to, not alot though. But before the credits roll you're gonna save the day or all die trying. There is nothing else."
== Jobs == I have one job, journal keeper. Worth 1dp.
== Pass out characters == Based on what we did long ago I’ve pregenerated characters. No one chose a combat oriented character and it shows. You are really smart and each of you has a rockin skill or ability. To avoid becoming a Cleetus snack you will hafta work together and use the strenghts you do have. I’m not saying you shouldn’t have combat, but when you do fight, fight smart.
Hopefully your skills, abilites, and equipment compliment each other.
Check out your “Role within the group”, “Strengths”, “Weaknesses”. This will give you an idea of what I was thinking while creating this Episode. At some points your char will be darn near useless. Everyone, hopefully, has a place to shine.
Take note of your drawbacks. I have and will deny actions tremendously in conflict with them.
A couple of you have the advantage “contacts”.
== Pick miniratures ==
== Give Mia 1st vision ==
==== How do we play Buffy anyway ====
Drama points: You got 10 not 20, here have some stones 9white 1 red one 1 “Get a break” - form of plot twist. Once only, red stone. 1 “I’m the shin diggy” - +10 bonus to most any roll 1 “But a Scratch” - get back half the life point damage taken so far do it again and again 2 “Righteous Fury!” - You need reasonable cause, get +5 to attacks for 1 combat 5-10 “I’m not dead yet” - 5 comeback next scene, 10 comeback now 3 “Buy a Clue” - These [show cards] a flashing signs this way.
If your floudering buy one.
“I want more” Use them! Horders will be denied. 1 In the buffy style, quotable quotes. 1-2 Be a hero. 1-3 Totaly and unfairly shafted by the director. I shall pay for the privilege.
=== Basic Rolls === ++ The Skill Roll: add you skill, it’s attribute, and a d10. For most skills I’ve precalculated the skill/atribute and listed +x. Just add d10 to that.
++ The Attribute Roll: add the two attributes or double a single attribute add d10
++ Success Levels: See Charsheet. How well you do is a factor sometimes, also things like aiming and feinting add their success levels to the next attack.
++ Opposed Actions: I will say a number and you have to beat it to hit, common for combat.
=== The Wiggins === Scary shit scares you. It is a willpower check. Gunderson and Mia are immune, Gunder cause he grew up having parts of his friends regularly splattered on his face, Mia cause that’s just the kind of girl she is.
=== Combat === Each turn has 3 parts: - Intentions - tell me what you want to do - Initiative - no roll, my supreme wisdom I decide who when - Actions - stuff happens
Each turn you may attack once and defend once (doge or parry).
All those things listed under combat maneuvers are combat maneuvers. I’ve calculated the bonus (add to d10) and the base damage.
The NPC’s don’t roll they have a combat score that you must beat to hit or dodge them. For instance Cleetus score is 14, that means most of you have to roll 9 or 10 or blow a drama point to pop him one in the kisser.
Success levels of attack is added to base damage and any armor is subtracted. The result is damage that gets through. Blunt damage is further reduced by toughness Mannie has 4pts of cause he’s so rubbery and flexible. Pointy/cutty weapons damage is doubled.
Just a few more combat details and we are good to go.
++ Full defense: gets you 2 defense actions and +3 bonus Full attack: bonzai! 2 attacks +2 bonus
++ Armor: Everyone has access to a Julia or GBA militia uniform, see char sheet. It’s worth 10 vs bullets and bash 5 vs slash & stab. Mullettov has a full EOD suit and only hi-caliber guns or magic will jack his legs. Mannie’s parents bought him some tricky armor.
===== Spring Break ===== Read
School Lunch - Friday
Nice sunny day, birds are chirping, air is sweet with flowers from the garden.
Mannie, Mia, Gunder hanging in the school couryard during lunch, various kids and teachers are milling about. Wendy comes skipping up. “La la la. Perfect the last three of my deliveries” “you, you,” doing a cartwheel and flip “and you.” “Don’t be late, la la la” she sings skipping away.
Maria, popular girl of previous grade, to Gunderson “Um, excuse me what’s your name” with handie enters info “How much can you lift, with those legs I mean” “Do you need to recharge them?” “how long”
She will get scared, screech and run away. Then Apu Weinberge, Jr Varsity arena combat champ comes up to bully. “Hey Dunderson why you picking on girls?”
Keeping him down “Miakoda you’re smart why do you hang with these dorks?”
Just then a lunch tray flies through the air tagging Apu in the back of the knee and he collapses to the ground. Must of been the wind.

Meanwhile Wendy has ripped off the outer packaging to reaveal a 10cm metal and plastic cube with a big red button up front. Delgao, “Um, we have a look before we touch?” But Wendy has already pushed the button with both tiny thumbs and a giggle. A small holo-gram of a joker or fool floppy hat checkered cloths and shoes that end in bells. It dances a little jig and sings this tune.

Bzzzt break time
===== Strawberry Hill ===== You can’t see, everything is dark. You feel like the water rushing down a stream, drops of water passing from rock to rock, node to node. You begin to understand you find yourselfs standing in a clearing on top of a wooded hill. There is a 5-8m depression in the ground with some sort of natural alter at one end. Off to the side there is a large portable fuel cell and beyond that a Sat Dish. Cables from the dish and cell run into a very trick looking rack of computers. Several more cables run from the computers to the center of the depression and up into a glowing, shimmering ball of light. In the middle of this light sits lotus style a middle aged women with long straight brown hair. Her eyes are closed and her face wears a serene smile. It is hard to stare at the light but she appears to be au natural.
“Hello I am the old man of the net otherwise known as Willow.” her lips have not moved.
“stike 12” large earthquake the bad guys are comming

Cleetus with complete gargoyle suit stands on the summit. Celestine is trudging up. Zombies are crawling out of thier graves and marching in shambling columns North and South.
Spike through speakers on Cleetus “Yes, my prieties. Go go!”Next time cleetus we really gotta get some flying monkies.”
“Yes Master. leech
Willow rings and says “Somone has to cross over, ah to thier side.” “It’s one way I can’t bring you back. The best I can offer is to fork your soul and bring part of it into the net.” “Not like Spike, he’s just a program, you would be a soul using the net instead of flesh for your body.”
