Rifts Adventure Sourcebook 2: Chi-Town ‘Burbs: Firetown & the Tolkeen Crisis is an odd duck. It focuses on providing plot hooks for running adventures in a sprawling city in the shadow of the Coalition States. It also features a fully fleshed out team of adventurers out for revenge against the CS. Six fully written up adventurers with personalities and back stories who aren’t just punching bags or mary sues. It’s weird, I know. Shaun and I discuss what kind of TV show would best suit these characters.
Last week I went down to Florida to consult on an upcoming Kickstarter project, Superhero 2044. Fellow RPG podcaster and fan of RPPR, Richard, lived nearby, so on my downtime, we hung out and recorded a podcast. Richard runs a Shadowrun podcast, A Fistful of Misanthropes, so who better to ask about Shadowrun than an expert GM like him?
Looks like we’ve already covered Vampire Kingdoms in After Hours, so Faust picked Warlords of Russia to explore. What’s in post-apocalyptic Russia? Medieval peasants and combat cyborgs. Oh and hordes of monsters. And as many Russian stereotypes you can shake a bear at.
Two RPPR fans and fellow podcasters, Noah and Jeb visited us a few weeks back and they brought gifts. Namely, a stack of old RPGs and Dragon magazines. Aaron, Shaun, I, and our two guests sampled a bit from these new additions to the After Hours library. It’s an eclectic mixture, to say the least.
