Colin Dunn's Jovial Chronicles

Tonight Colin Dunn stopped in Edmonton for a whirlwind visit with his old gaming buddies. Scott Friel came up with a great way to  honour Colin's visit: he designed a short mini-adventure for Jovian Chronicles, a game that Colin ran for us before he moved to Vancouver Island, and one for which he's actually written assorted game books. Scott created characters for Steve, Colin, Jeff and Dustin and Mike and I (not pictured); we all awoke in the prison cells of a starship, aware only of our own motives, forced to work together under mysterious circumstances. (I played a space pilot with an addiction problem and conflicted morality.) It was great to see Colin again, and I'm certainly impressed by Scott's ability to pull together a clever adventure in a matter of hours.
