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.
The sleepy little town of Innsmouth is under attack by a dark force, something that has plagued humanity for years, targeting the hungry and poor: gentrification. Artists, socialites, and tastemakers are flocking to the seaside village, flooding the street with fixie bicycles and artisan coffee shops. But little do these hipsters know, something older resides in Innsmouthsburg, and the call haunts the dreams of the long-time residents. Everyone has an agenda, and that can only lead to… a Fiasco.
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

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?

The crew has finally made it to Fort Seeley, but the base is currently occupied by DHQS operators, and under surveillance by Canadian nationals. They’ve come up with a plan to neutralize both sides by kiting a horde of casualties to the fort, but it’s a high risk plan. Will they be able to secure the site without any setbacks, or will Thumb slip up again?
