Episode 22: Becoming A More Active Player/GM

Have you ever found your mind wandering while at the table?  Does your podcasting co-host constantly play with his fidget spinner while you’re recording?  If so then this is the RPX episode for you.  Join us as we discuss techniques to both plays and game master focus at the table.

Areas of Discussion: being an active player, note taking, including all player characters in on the action, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Evil Within 2 (and Noah’s Twitch stream), and a few other things we got distracted and forgot to mention.

 

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

 

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

Episode 13: NPCS

Players create one character, game masters create the rest. Join us as we discuss how to build believable NPCs that help bring your game to life.

Areas of discussion: NPCs, architypes, creation strategies, Mary Sues.
