RPPR Illustrated: The Best of Jason and Renee

Jason and Renee have been a power couple of RPPR so we’re celebrating their games with a montage of some of their best moments!

Top row, left to right, we have Langdon Skarl from Nagalisitu  (favored enemy: other PC’s nemeses) wielding his signature weapon;  Samuel Morse and Miss Beatrice Lemone of The Mystery of Brighton Lodge,  uncovering secrets and lies; Ethel Voltaire and VAL-1138 of Abundance,  showcasing very different reactions to a fleeing suspect; a  commemorative photo of Lala Lafleur and Dr. Anthony Porter of Midnight  Sub Rosa, proudly watching a mansion burn down.

Bottom row,  left to right, we have the merry thrill-seekers of GHOST PUNCHERS–  Hot-pink Floyd in the Ouija halfpipe, India Jones coming to a very  anticlimactic end, Moe Hogan conducting an unorthodox interview, and  Bonesaw juicing up with some haunted whey powder; The heretic-hunting  team of Battle Sister Henna Orton and Battle-brother Trojohn from  Blessings Unheralded; and finally the unflappable housekeeper Hobson and  the traumatised Chauffeur Francis of The Halloween Party, enjoying  another normal day serving the Blackwood family.

After Hours: Rolemaster Creatures and Treasures 1 and 2

Recently, a friend of the podcast mailed me a stack of Rolemaster books so for the next few episodes we will be exploring the depths of critical hit tables, odd statblocks and expanded encounter tables on After Hours. First off is Creatures and Treasures, an archive of both monsters and magic items. Aaron, Tom, and I find some real jewels in these two books. Enjoy!

RPPR Illustrated: The Best of Ross!

A little over 10 years ago, I began RPPR Actual Play. Since then, we’ve had a lot of great games. Patsy picked some of the more memorable characters I’ve played:

“In the centre, we’ve got the big boss of Role-playing Public Radio,  Ross Payton, enjoying a well-earned tot of rum from the comfort of his  brutalist mcmansion. Around him, anticlockwise from top left, we have a  few choice NPCs- Warbot 5000, the surly twitch-streamer robot from Gate  9; Balgron The Fat, the amiable but devious goblin from The New World;  Cool Rat, the super-rad mascot villain of Sucrose Park; and the sinister  Deer Hunter who terrorised Fallen Flag.

On the outside,  anticlockwise from top left, we have Sheldon Baker, Ace Reporter from  Bryson Springs, as he begins to ‘see the strings’; Hard-boiled social  worker McBain from The Haunting, grittily reviewing his new case; Agent  Provost of God’s Teeth, leaving a token of his appreciation for his  co-workers; Kowloon and Ludwig the architecture-quoting dronkey of the  Brutalists, friends to children everywhere; heroic military  engineer/newspaper editor Castor of Nagalisitu, delivering a mighty  dressing-down to a treacherous comrade; and Bartleby of Know Evil,  fighting for their life against a horrifying Exsurgent threat under the  surface of Luna.”
