Anyone have thoughts on a game that would do Attack on Titan well?

For those unfamiliar with AoT, it is a manga/anime series following a group of soldiers who attempt to protect the last remnants of humanity by keeping them behind great walls that keep the titans out. Titans are largely mindless humanoids of gigantic proportions who seek to eat humans. The titans can only be killed in a very specific way (slicing deep in the back of the neck), so humanity has developed devices that allow users to fire spikes on lines to attach to objects and maneuver through the air to slice at the back of the titans’ necks. The story has a sense of mystery about how the world became like this, and * minor spoilers* it is revealed that certain humans have the ability to turn into titans. The story has frequent character death as well.

Thoughts on a game that might do this well, or does this game need to be written, or does this type of story not translate well to tabletop games?

2000 members! The ranks continue to swell and the horde grows in strength! May it ever be so!

Dreams!

Dreams!

Dreams! share them! I love to hear everyone who has them for everyone and everything Gauntlet is doing at this time!!!!

My dreams to josh gary who ran an outstanding two month series of DW. Josh started this as an extension of a “The Wall” DW supplement that mimics the wall experience from A Song of Ice and Fire, while still demanding that the DW players invent most of the content of what the DW “Wall” means. For example, our “Wall” is in a jungle and is a giant cover of ancient bones of creatures no longer in existence that keeps the dangers out.

After the sessions exploring the DW characters who had experiences at the wall, Josh explored what those characters experiences would be in the middle of the kingdom, years later, if the those same characters were ordered to try and recruit from the middle kingdoms of safety. Great sessions one and all!!!

Dreams to all characters in Josh’s games and particularly to James Sweetland and [email protected] who played characters! Of course, if anyone wants more details and wants the fastest response possible, reach out to me; I will try to answer as quick as humanly possible. My email is [email protected]

Years ago, when gauntlet was a quietly prosperous indie group that had games at a bar and grill called Jax several nights a week in Houston, TX, we had a particularly slow night where just a few gamers showed. These few gamers decided they didn’t have enough to play what they had scheduled; there were only three of them if my memory serves me. A fun little game of Microscope would be just the thing to scratch the gaming itch. They decided on a particularly ridiculous premise for this universe of Microscope: what if the gauntlet ran the universe in the future? The game was great laughter about evil robots from the future warping in, Terminator -style, to assassinate the clone of Jason Cordova, the leader of this future. A religion had been formed named Realities Discerned that could answer all of the questions any of the faithful could imagine.

Now, years later, in the wake of GauntletCon, I remember these early days. A successful Discern Realities podcast, a multitude of folks who love the gauntlet and want to participate more… Keep an eye out for evil robots, will you?

Its another fine day in the Gauntlet Community, and its business as usual.

Its another fine day in the Gauntlet Community, and its business as usual. The latest Codex released, as its the first of the month. The Gauntlet Podcast 110 hit my stream. I sent my ritualistic message to Jason to let him know the next episode of DR is ready for quality check: “DR Ep 49 is in the Discern Realities folder on Dropbox.” I’m prepping for a great first session of Ray’s dragon hoard from his Plundergrounds zine.

Then I realized, this isn’t just an ordinary day. This is the 12 issue of Codex, which means its been a full year since we started that project. I can’t believe how quickly it went by. The Gauntlet has grown so much in the past year. I’ve met so many amazing people with the Gauntlet this year. I’ve run my first long campaign for the Gauntlet through the Anglekite setting book for Dungeon World Wednesdays. I’ve seen our calendar nearly double in scope as more people run games.

And I am thankful. I love this group. I have grown so much as a player from engaging with this group. I have grown so much as a storyteller from engaging with this group. I have grown so much as a person by engaging with this group. I cannot wait for what is to come next in the future, but I wanted to take a minute to give out some dreams, take a deep breath, and reflect a bit on all that we have done.

Dreams for all listed below!

Daniel Lewis who taught many story games, prepared many sheets for online play, and personally taught me to edit audio, so I could be the editor for Discern Realities.

Oli Jeffery for blowing my mind each time I get to see the advanced copies of Codex.

A dream for every contributing author of Codex, for making me excited to do the editing work each month.

A dream to the community for engaging in such a flurry of posts every time a Miscellany gets posted for contributions.

Richard Rogers who has allowed me to play some of the most dramatic characters in all the gaming I have done, and who allowed Bones to be a true badass.

josh gary who made it to every single Anglekite game I’ve run.

Michael G. Barford who is a fantastic partner for a secret Gauntlet Project code name: Killer-Spectre.

Gerrit Reininghaus who challenged my perception of Dungeon World in new ways with his character creations.

Michael X. Heiligenstein for his character who brought about the apocalypse in Angelkite, but introduced us all to his delightful little bird Mort in the process.

Yoshi Creelman who I always enjoy playing with and never get to see enough of.

Seraphina Ferraro for making DexCon unforgettable.

And finally Jason Cordova, without whom none of this would be possible. Here’s to another fantastic year!

Thanks to all my players of the second Anglekite mini campaign: Michael X.

Thanks to all my players of the second Anglekite mini campaign: Michael X. Heiligenstein Jennifer Erixon josh gary Maxime Lacoste Patrick Brannick ! Campaign 2: the city of the dead had one hell of a transition (emphasis on hell!) into the demons and thieves mini campaign three. I loved how these players dealt with the difficult situations that are a key part of the Anglekite settling. It’s so dark, grim, and scary. But the end is neigh, and the players are struggling hard to prevent it! The Archlich (pictured below) had had no chance to to pull off his plan to transport the living dead to a safe pace, but attempted his best before he was attacked by the thieves guild and stabbed in the back! I can’t wait to see what happens next!
