Hykosian Arrival/Ka’Abrelian Incursion
Started: 5/1993 (estimated)
My first science fiction system outside of Star Frontiers. We had some great characters venture into a campaign that I made up as I went along, chasing down the HLA and their masters, the true Hykosians and their servants, the “big uglies”. I ran this for a year or so and then played in a game with Neil Spicer as GM, me playing Rosh.
This particular campaign was a conglomeration of ideas I was getting from various sources. The Hykosians and the “big uglies” remained a mystery for the most part and popped in and out whenever it was convenient. They were inspired by the Shadows of B5, quite obviously. Meanwhile, I made up a more tangible menace, the Ka’Abrel and sent the players after them. Additionally, their ship was an on-going problem – possessed by the psionic spirit of an insane Chromrittern – Guts.
Eventually, I figured out a convoluted way to link Guts with the Ka’Abrel and eventually the Hykosians.
