Rescue Run

By on 20 April 2013

Mongoose Publishing have just posted a brand new adventure for 2300AD on DriveThruRPG, Rescue Run.

Rescue Run is the first adventure in the Grendelssaga, a series of three adventures set on the rogue world of Grendel, in the Queen Alice’s Star system. Grendel is largely unexplored, an uninhabitable world in the next orbit out from the human colony world of Beowulf.

Rescue Run introduces the world of Grendel and its conditions, and is a sourcebook for the small outpost run by the University of Alicia on Grendel, studying the violent weather and emergent life forms. Characters must make their way from Beowulf to Grendel, across a system under dire threat from Kaefer marauders and human raiders taking advantage of the situation. Once on Grendel, the characters must survive the next storm until they can get themselves and the students away from the world. A hidden threat puts everyone at risk.

The next two adventures in the series, Salvage Rights and Black as Pitch, further explore the world, including contact with a Pentapod enclave, a crashed human warship from a distant war, and the secret at the heart of Grendel, along with its 100,000 year history.

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 dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
