Episode 37- Velvet Glove Post-Mortem

In our first ever post-mortem, David and Shaun from Role Playing Public Radio and Ethan from Technical Difficulties sit down with us to discuss their thoughts and experiences playing Velvet Glove. We talk about the mini-campaign, The Lethal Lolitas, and provide our overall impression of the system.

“You Can’t Spell Blondie Without Die.”

It’s the day of the big dance and the Lethal Lolitas have a mystery to solve.  Can the gang solve it in time for the dance?  Will they have what it takes to take on the Vermin on in a street fight?  Stay tuned for this exciting conclusion of Velvet Glove.

Actual Play- Velvet Glove – Episode 2 – Another Brick In The Wall

A war is brewing and the Lethal Lolitas need all the help they can to stop the Vermin from taking control of the city. Desperate time call for desperate measures, which probably explains while the Lolitas seek the aid of the chess team to pass the big upcoming exam. But life isn’t just about pocket protectors and protractors, the Lolitas also must seek aid from the toughest gang in the city, the 18th Street Demons.

Per a conversation we had on the latest episode of Beyond the Wall of Patreon, Chris has devised a surreal Jingle All the Way UA scenario.
.
 ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all thru the mart, not a customer was stirring, despite discount Paul Blart. The Day Shift had a truly busy day, true, but this left Darby, Ann and Mike with nothing to do. The night forecast to be nothing more than a bore, but then three strange customers entered the store…
.
Aaron – Abe – Beloved gutter mage from a yet to be published UA campaign.
Adam – Mike –  Optimistic prosthetic wearing All-Mart employee trying to contain the store’s weirdness.
Ian – Darby – Works at the All-Mart to uncover what caused her college friend’s death.
Vince – Ann – Ann took up a job at the All-Mart in the hopes that she might find her creator (psst Ann is a robot)
