Alpha Playtest of Weird Trip

I took a break from freelance writing to write a quick storytelling game. Weird Trip is a collaborative game about a traveler on a journey to…somewhere. Who that traveler is and where they stop along the way is determined by the players. I ran a playtest with Bill, Tom, and Aaron.

This is the very first draft of the rules so feedback is appreciated. Once I revise it, I’ll release it to the public in some format, but you guys get first glance at it! Enjoy!

RPPR Palladium Poisoning: Episode 4 – Atlantis – Part 1

Atlantis is the heart of the Rifts setting, even moreso than North America. It’s an evil empire run by a godlike alien intelligence who just wants to sell you some rune swords and slaves. It is the ultimate RPG shop for murderhobos. Faust, Shaun, and I delve into the geography and culture of Atlantis, at least as much as we can in one episode. Clearly, this will be a two parter. Check out that swole owl man!

We have a Base Raiders campaign coming up soon and I asked Patsy to draw the player characters. We had six players, so this month shows half of the team. From left to right:

  • Ivan (Shaun’s PC)
  • Trey (Caleb’s PC)

What are their powers? How did they get them? You’ll have to wait for the first episode to drop this month to find out! Thanks for backing the RPPR Patreon!
