Other Borders

There are borders everyone sees: the looming fence with its sporadic observation platforms, the tags claiming this block or that in the name of a local gang or drug cartel, and the wrought-iron fences surrounding gated communities.

There are borders that are real only in our minds, like the imaginary lines that divide country from country, or one race from another.

But in this little southwestern town, another border reveals itself to those gifted with the power to see it: the veil between the worlds. Even today, the old ways of magic are still taught; spells, curses, visions and transformations are still practiced, and opposing clans are locked in a daily battle that no policia would ever understand.

Other Borders is based on Tom McGrenery's Malandros - a DramaSystem game.

Other Borders Session 0

...with Legends of Tabletop
A mini-campaign on LegendsOfTabletop. We did chargen on Slack but then we switched to Youtube for a live recap of session 0 and one round of scenes. Other Borders uses the "Malandros" hack of Robin Laws' DramaSystem, which replaces the cards and procedural rules with PBTA-like Moves. Come with players Shawn Koch, Jesse Pyne and John Haremza, as they enter a world of drugs, money and magic in the American southwest.

Other Borders Session 1

...with Legends of Tabletop
In session 2 (well, session 1.5 sorta, because session 0-1 was so short), we get a closer look at the machinations of the local gangs and the visiting cartel boss, and Javier and Manny do some magic stuff. A bunch of drug dealers die, and Filippo, as is turning out to be his usual MO, is getting involved on both sides of the coming conflict...
