Fair and balanced my ass! Mornington Crescent has become synonymous with deus ex machina for fuck sake!

If you're unhappy with the latest few editions and want to go back to a game that plays more like 12th, can I suggest Stationcraft?

It includes almost everything from 12th up to the Uptownshire errata, but most of the cheeses from the Market Street expansion have been curbed. And everything's been rebalanced with input from the designer's of the Geneva ISO game.

I've had a lot of success with the Merchant Trader with attached Anti-Matter Warhead and Remote Detonator combo.

It's a pricey combo but if you can sneak some in behind the enemy lines the opponent is just about fragged. I love the mechanic behind the Merchant Trader. Off course it's not really meant to deliver anything else than trade goods but it can fool any player who doesn't ask what goods you are trading.

So I'm playing with my friends, a couple of fairly new people, and two others are experienced like me. Experience guys roll a Chefmancer and a Pugilist, taking care of our offensive spellcasting needs. Newbies go for a Field-Promotion Jamba-Junkie, which is some good ranged combat, but not too tricky to figure out, and a Knight of the Unholy Abomination, who can tank for our sorry squad. Pretty well-rounded group, so I decide to go crazy and roll up a Surgical Advisor, you know, that healling class from Advanced Medical Dramas? Healling only, no Diagnosing magic or Treage skills for combat.

After a few months, we finally get to the BBEG, The Pugilist and Jamba-Junkie get decimated by some area spells, leaving only me, the Knight, and the Chefmancer. Chefmancer tries to cast a flambé, crit failure. Knight rolls to try and summon the ire of things unknown with the failure, crit success. Roll on random summons, a fucking Wuthering Dragon. Proceeds to fuck up the BBEG for a while while I'm busy stabalizing the others. Round before I've got them up, BBEG pulls a Vial of Unforseen Consequences out of nowhere, Wuthering Dragon goes rogue, kills the Knight straight out. Chefmancer gets knocked into unconsciousness locking it into a Pastry Prison.

Me and the BBEG are the only ones left. He comes at me, I barely dodge. Say fuck it, attack with my scalpel. Crit succes. Roll to confirm, crit success. Roll a d7 for critical outcome? Mornington Fucking Crescent. Yeah,. the BBEG is dead, but my character's an Aussie, so the party is left to bleed out while I'm fucking around trying to figure out the timeschedule.
