Kickstart Your Weekend: Venger Satanis Style!

Venger has got another Alpha Blue Kickstarter in the works and it claims to be the last.

The Last Alpha Blue Supplement

This kickstarter includes not one, but two books: Kobayashi Maroon & Sexual Predators.

Sexual Predators is the new title.  Kobayashi Maroon is already out.
I will admit I enjoy Alpha Blue.  It is that nice mix of 70s and 80s sci-fi sleaze that was a steady diet of my youth.  It's not for everyone, but I love it.

So this Kickstarter is wrapping up, but Venger has been excellent with all his Kickstarters so far and this should be no different.

Kobayashi Maroon
How am I supposed to say no to an Alpha Blue product that invokes the memory of one of my favorite things in one of my favorite movies ever?
That answer is "No. I am not going to ignore it."

Now sometimes I like to read books to review on my lunch break at work.  Yeah. That wasn't going to happen with this one.  Look, there is nothing X-Rated in this book.  Maybe R, maybe a racy PG-13.  Nothing more.  But it is certainly Not Safe For Work, so keep that in mind.

This is a collection of three short adventures.
Episode one is a riff on the Kobayashi Maru, you need to rescue The Vanessa before Yog-Soggoth, wait that sounds bad. Before Yog-Soggoth arrives.  I dig this one since I have been all about mixing Trek and Cthulhu.  I am not sure I can play this one straight though.  Still, I love the idea and it really made me laugh.

Episode two is an Amok Time riff and I must say kudos to author Zoltar Khan Delgado (no shit, that's his name. I really, really want it to be his real name too.) for coming up with Pr0n Fa'ar.  I am disapointed in myself for not coming up with it myself.  But then again I was not blessed with a name like Zoltar.  With a name like that there are certain expectations.

The third and last epsiode features a wine mixing event in which the PCs are security.  It's a pretty clever set up and could be run complete straight to be honest.  The NPCs are all rich, powerful, extremely good looking or all the above. This where the power of the three galaxies come to play.  Of course there is going to be trouble!
We end with an Appendix of random tables that will only ever find use in an Alpha Blue game.

My only gripe about this book is where was it when I REALLY needed it? You know back in 1985.

But in all seriousness, this is just good old pervy fun.  I won't run it for my kids, but I will mine it for ideas. Plus my kids are old enough now that if they find it and want to run it for their groups that is fine.  Serious. Why is being a "murder hobo" ok but a pervert is not?  Give me a pervert any day.

Anyway check this out.

I'm going to take that as a compliment because where else can you utilize a perfectly good cunnilingus table?

Correct good sir!

The three of us should game sometime... you, me, and Zoltar!
