Shower Scene

By on 23 February 2008

The PC team is just back from a week long mission to PX-90210, which is quite possibly the most boring planet in the galaxy. It was formerly held by Baal, but he abandoned it a few centuries ago when the naquada mines ran out. The local population is sparse and scrapes a living by subsistence farming. The PCs were made welcome, and have had to suffer a week of tedium while the team archaeologist/anthropologist translated inscriptions on local ruins that all basically say “Yeah, there really is NOTHING of value left on this planet, so I’m leaving, love Baal.” The highlight of the mission has been the locals singing an interminable song about ploughing (all 47 verses of it) before every meal, and village debate about which kid the local bronze-smith should take on as his apprentice. Oh, and after the 5th or 6th bowl of lentil and mutton soup with black bread, even MREs taste good…

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
