Ready, Set, Game PDX is a story gaming community for one-shot thematic role-playing games.
This week they have The Mountain Witch and Ocean!
“The Mountain Witch” by Timothy Kleinert is a single role-playing adventure in which the players take on the roles of ronin, masterless samurai in mythical medieval Japan, who have been hired to attempt an assault on the Mountain Witch of Mount Fuji, O-Yanma. The characters may have different reasons for accepting the task, but what they share is that they have all been disenfranchised from their former lives and from society. They also have all grown desperate from the difficulties of their lives, and hope the payoff from this adventure will finally allow them to regain whatever life they have lost.
Ocean is a game about self discovery and survival created by Portland's own Jake Richmond and published by Atarashi Games. "We’re a group of people trapped in an underwater research station. We can’t remember who we are or why we’re there. We don’t know what the monsters are that are picking us off one at a time. All we know is that we need to get out. We want to escape. That’s what Ocean is about."
