JohnCon Mission Report (part 1)
This last weekend at JohnCon was a lot of fun, and I was able to run three different missions with three different groups of players. This week, I'll be sharing some of the highlights from these missions—as always, Hopkins players continue to surprise me with their creativity and ingenuity! The first group of players began with the Gun Runners mission found in the Starter Kit, and they successfully dispatched robotic sentry drones outside the warehouse with teamwork and focused fire. One particularly creative solution to dealing with a drone involved driving their squadcar at it while firing the rotary cannon mounted on the car. They severely damaged the drone with the bullets and followed up by smashing into it with the car, which resulted in an electrical explosion of robot carnage. After dealing with the drones and realizing they had made quite a lot of noise to alert the smuggling gang inside the warehouse, the team used the forklift they found nearby to move crates in front of the large garage door of the warehouse to prevent anyone from escaping once they breached.
