Special Podcast: Call of Cthulhu – He Calls Me By The Thunder

I was talking to Jason (who now lives in Kansas City) recently when he came down to Springfield to visit. He told me about a game he and Aaron had played in back at a local sci-fi convention back in 2014. It was a version of He Calls Me By The Thunder , but run with the Call of Cthulhu rules instead of Trail and with the same GM, Ethan of Technical Difficulties  podcast. I searched the RPPR archives and found it, figuring you guys would want to hear it. Enjoy and thanks for supporting RPPR!

RPPR Patreon Actual Play: Atomic Robo: What in the World is Dr. Dinosaur Doing?

drDinosaurStreamed Live on Oct 25, 2015

The eccentric and unpredictable Dr. Dinosaur has long been a pain in the collective backside of the scientific community. For over two decades he has constantly makes threats to destroy scientific facilities (such as the LHC at CERN). Though largely ineffective (and usually a victim of his own insane plans or Tesladyne interference), the sanity-challenged sauropod has seemingly completed a series of fairly complicated heists in the last few months. These thefts have included bio-samples from a Harvard genetics lab, outdated industrial capacitors from a Edision Electrical junkyard and oddly enough an entire truckload of Cherry Coke from a Mid-Western bottling plant. Oddly enough, the Doctor has managed to slip in and complete his crimes almost completely undetected. The only evidence is security footage that seemingly is ignored until it is reviewed the next day. Unsure of what Dr. Dinosaur plans to do with these thefts but aware that it could spell disaster when utilized with his unique brand of ‘science’, the intrepid action scientists of Tesladyne have been dispatched to track down the mad lizard and stop his latest experiments.

RPPR Patreon Actual Play: Base Raiders – Return of the Robot Assassin

br-iconoclastWhile looking into the increased activities within the NYC criminal rings, the hero inventor Iconoclast discovers two disturbing facts. One, there seems to be a rise in casualties on all sides that the gangs are not talking about, specifically with Luytein refugees that have been “recruited” as specialized enforcers. And two, it appears that these Luytein enforcers have had the majority of their cybernetic implants stripped. Researching further into the attacks, Iconoclast finds CCTV footage of one of the attacks, revealing the perpetrator to be the hero know as the Steel Centurion. Realizing that the Steel Centurion has either gone rogue or someone else has acquired the armor, Iconoclast calls on four local Base Raiders to find out why the one-time hero has had a change of heart and what he plans to do with the stolen Luytein technology.
