    SYNarios 3: Voyage To Another World

    SYNarios 3: Voyage To Another World

    Our next instalment of SYNarios takes us to the stars, as Marcy invites Tom, Connor and Viv in a spaceship that's bound towards a new world (if you're wondering what it's name is, it's [REDACTED]). On the spaceship, introverted but levelheaded owl scientist Telos (played by Tom) and TV talk show host and Broadway wannabe Paulie Peacock (played by Viv), must survive a one-way trip to a new world, with the cruel and evil Ms. Trunchbull knockoff Fania (played by Connor). Will everyone make it alive to the new world? Are there stowaways hiding under our crews' noses/beaks? Is there a couch with real Italian leather stuck somewhere on the spaceship? Find out right now in this exciting new (and third) instalment of SYNarios!

    SYNarios is a Dungeons and Dragons, Choose Your Own Adventure blend of fun storytelling and roleplaying mayhem, without all the complicated mechanics tabletop role playing games like D and D usually have. Each SYNario has a different scenario, and different characters, but choices within each SYNario are at the mercy of probability (aka a 20 sided D20 die). Expect lots of fun, and whimsical chaos, as each player improv their way through each SYNario, bouncing off each other, the Game Master (GM), and the scenario itself!

    SYNarios 2: A Good Old Zombie Apocalypse

    In this second instalment of SYNarios on Art Smitten, Marcy takes Connor and Sharni, whose characters are an unholy fusion of Marvel's Wolverine and Devil May Cry's Dante (who is a wolf...also named Dante), and a young sword-swinging apprentice named Lana respectively, through a zombie apocalypse. Which quickly becomes a race against time, as Dante and Lana must find the cure to their newly acquired zombie infection, before they succumb to their infection, and become shambling corpses themselves.
