Episode 18: Teaching At The Table

While it is ideal that everyone gathering around the table knows how to play the game, many times it is up to the GM to not only run the game but educate players while they do so. In this episode Noah, Adam, and Chris explore best practices of how to show players an RPG system.

Areas of discussion: new players, new system, character sheets from hell, free rpg day, Origins, and Car Hitler

 

Actual Play: Slasher Flick – Miskatonic University Spring Break

 

It was supposed to be the perfect getaway. A group of Miskatonic University students travel to a small island off the coast of Rhode Island to throw a weekend long beach party in celebration of Spring Break. Celebrations quickly turn to horror when the partiers discover they are not alone. Will the students overcome what they’ve uncovered, or will the dark forces hidden within the island turn this into nothing more than a bloody Slasher Flick?

Red Markets: King of the Hill Episode 2

 

The Copper Kings have been contracted by a man calling himself Goodyear: they need to secure a supposedly abandoned air force base housing an experimental airship. But they need to get to the site first: a journey, on foot, through zombie-infested hillside. Will the crew be able to make a profit on their journey, or will Thumb screw shit up?

Actual Play: Delta Green – Operation: PELAGIC

 

 

A group of federal employees with special clearance are scrambled to Crofton, Maryland, as the Program comes to fear infiltration by a non-human lineage. The body of William Garrett, NSA analyst and Delta Green friendly, has been discovered in his townhouse. Garrett’s cadaver appears to have been partially transformed into a reptilian, or possibly aquatic, hominid monstrosity. Have the Program’s efforts to track and sever the Innsmouth bloodlines been in vain? What killed William Garrett, and how? Operation PELAGIC has been activated at short notice to plunge into murkier depths than anyone could possibly expect in this original scenario.

Episode 15: Adding Romance To Your RPG

 

Like any bad partner in a relationship, we may have forgotten Valentine’s Day, or pushed this episode back to make room for the Greg Stolze interview.   But, putting Stolze ahead of your needs does kind of sound bad, forget we said anything.  So, please accept this lackluster gift and our most sincere apologies.  We’ll do better in the future, we promise.

In this episode, we (awkwardly) discuss adding romantic elements to your tabletop games.

Areas of discussion: romance, hot loving, smooches, long walks along the beach, Catherine (videogame), Riverdale
