Risus Monkey at NC Game Day
SILVERLODE 1908: DANCES WITH WEREWOLVES
In the spring of 1908, President Roosevelt has sent agents to Silverlode, Colorado to investigate suspicious foreign interest in local occult activity. These investigations are interrupted when the daughter of a prominent U.S. government official is carried off by rampaging werewolves.
Silverlode 1908 is a Risus game set in the last days of the Weird West. Players will assume the roles of US government agents (or exceptionally concerned citizens) in the fictional town of Silverlode, a former boomtown suffering from a reputation for strange occurrences. The mysterious Anasazi were only one of many famous disappearances from the area and foul things are rumored to inhabit the old silver mines that were once a source of great wealth for the region. At the dawn of the new century, Silverlode acts like a magnet for curious occultists, courageous adventurers, and covetous treasure seekers from all over the world.
NOTES: We will be using a "semi-serious" version of Risus: the Anything RPG. Rules and examples of play can be found at http://www.velvet-edge.com/silverlode_1908.html. Pre-Gen PCs will be provided, though player-created PCs may used if approved by the GM.
