Co-piloting Chaos Nova (20). More Killing Floor reunion sessions.
Vaguely around Earth Occidental Standard Year 2014, the drift of interwebs lead my paths into collaboration course with Chaos Nova universe. I have since had the pleasure to dive into their forum-based space opera RPG, dispensing unsolicited advice about universe, life, and everything in the process. Once settled in the "writers' room" and comms all set up, I'd often join in for gameplay sessions too, sometimes just shout-along, but these days mostly active co-op.
Our fourth Killing Floor Reunion session took place mostly on classical maps - and it didn't start off so well. First we got overrun at the Ganja Farm.
Then things got intense at the Manor. Even though defeated before the boss round, we fought well.
The night ended at Freight Yard. We weren't able to locate all the collectables, but the Patriarch finally fell.
In the fifth "reunion" session we got a little experimental with the map choices. First there was this modified version of labs.
Then a train yard with ample loot, and good opportunities for railroading.
Finally, we found a piece of North Vegas in the middle of nowhere.
Somewhere between the fifth and sixth sessions, I picked up my Void gameplay again, and might have skipped some team nights. I did join up for another session of mixed-bag-o-maps, though, starting at the poorly lit airfield.
After that, an industrial boxing arena that for some reason was called Scrapheap. We did two more maps that night, but it was pretty standard action, and I didn't keep the footage.
Session seven was about discovery and retribution. We started off by robbing a sperm bank.
Then we took another stop at the Ganja Farm. Since we'd just been there the other night, I only recorded the sweet revenge at the end.
For the finishing touches we ran around in the woods. Turns out it's another classical map (which I had not seen before).
