Lost Property, Triple Ace Games

Late in the afternoon the kids wanted to play an RPG again, so I pulled out one of Triple Ace Games's Ace Tales, Lost Property. TAG's Ace Tales are their equivalent of PEG's One Sheet Adventures: a short adventure in PDF that fits on the front and back of one sheet, often with accompanying pre-generated characters. This particular one is a generic fantasy adventure that has the players working for a criminal syndicate trying to recover an item.

There weren't any pregens for this particular Ace Tale, so I got the ones from PEG's Wizards & Warriors Genre Supplement and the ones from Against the Orcs and let the players choose which they wanted. T.B. brought along a fantasy character he had created, a noble, and D.B. chose Sir Leopold Drakehelm, so we had two nobles working for a criminal syndicate, so I decided that they had to be disgraced nobles.

Clockwise, starting with the GM:

  • T.K.B. — GM

  • E.A. — Aspen Thistledown

  • T.A. — Sir Deelan the Ignoble 1

  • M.A. — Alfros Bladesinger

  • D.B. — Sir Leopold Drakehelm (later played by T.A. after D.B. had to leave)

  • L.B. — Belinda Warmhearted

Actual Play

An unsanctioned thief, Jeck Lightfinger, had fled with his ill-gotten gains into The Widow's Hold, a local haunted house. The characters were charged with finding Jeck.

They entered the ill-omened house and soon found the entrance to the tunnels below. They were soon ambushed by ghouls (in this scenario a type of undead), but fought them off. When the last ghoul fled, Sir Leopald

The character T.A. brought was a noble with the tag “The Brave”, but since they were working for a criminal syndicate he had to be disgraced noble and hence had the tag “The Ignoble” was more appropriate. I assured T.A. that Sir Deelan the Ignoble was just an ignoble alternate version of Sir Deelan the Brave, and he could play the original character in another game.
