MGS Does D&D El Paso Alternate Reality Style

Join us Saturday, the 12th of May at MGS – 1121 Larry Mahan Drive, Suite A, El Paso, TX 79925 – for a LIVE session of D&D played by Brandon from the KLAQ Morning Show and several MGS staff being DM’d by Justin Del Valle. Here’s a little teaser for you from the setting, which is an alternative future reality of El Paso:

As James slinked his way down the mountainside he pondered to himself what would await him across the next ridge. He had heard plenty of stories about Concordia, of its shady dealings and checkered past; yet shady dealings meant possible payouts and James was hungry for his next haul. What greeted James did not disappoint his sense of adventure.

Rising up into the mountains was what looked like a sprawling monastery completely out of place for this part of the world, but he valued oddities like this and that generally meant an equally eccentric clientele, or in his mind, targets. He pulled out his looking glass to get a better sense of just who and perhaps, what, he was up against. A peculiar choice of art graced the facades of most of the towers, or perhaps it lent itself to the purpose of this complex; a mining pick. That meant one thing in his mind, precious metals. Was this an elaborate mining complex where they unearthed buried treasures? At the very least, something of this size would at least have a safe or two stocked full of coin that could find its way into his possession.  As he scanned the multitude of buildings he noticed something humanoid; well, in shape, maybe not in size to which he was generally accustomed. Dwarves. Of course, it had to be dwarves, the inventors of the modern home security system.

Okay, this could be a good thing he mused to himself. Dwarves are generally a good sign of things stashed away and possibly forgotten, so it may not be immediately missed, whatever it is he decided to pilfer from their inventory. He scanned desperately looking for a warehouse or the very least a mine entrance so he could track the sweet pay dirt to its place of safe keeping. Books, books and more books. No one is carrying any crates or pushing any carts. This is all wrong, this can’t be right. Then it hit him, this isn’t a mine, this is a university, a place of useless learning, not of the sweet gold stuff or the glittery glory of gems or jewels. Well, maybe I can still make off with some of the tuition he resigned himself to plotting. He let out a sigh, “oh well, I’ve heard at least they have good tequila.” James made his way down the mountain to find the nearest tavern and plot his next move.
