Collection 1 – Kaiju Defenders: Next Gen

We’ve finished our first collection of six issues (game sessions) of the Sentinel Comics RPG, as our brave Aussies fend off all kinds of kaiju from the Australian shores. You can read all the individual session summaries in depth on our session summaries page (including some kaiju pics!).

Paul’s doing a great job running the game. I’m playing a Magnum P.I. inspired PI who can grow into a giant Australian yeti monster (the Yowie). Bruce is playing the arcane weirdo The Abyssal, Chris is playing speedster X-Celerate, Patrick is playing the gyrocopter-flying Overwatch, and Tim the killer robot Dynamo Joe.

One of my favorite parts has been researching Australian slang terms and phrases and inflicting them on the group. I worked with some Aussies at a startup once so I have some bonus ones to pull out on them. I enjoy the reaction when we pulled up to a trailer park being ravaged by a kaiju and I get to say “Well let’s get started, we didn’t just come here to fuck spiders!” (Do it in a strong Australian accent for best results.)

We’re playing semi-remote. Bruce is in Dallas and the rest of us are in Austin, so we’re using Google Meet and Roll20, though Chris, Patrick, and I have taken to getting together for fellowship and booze.

Follow along with our exploits!
