The final game in the RPPR Triptych, this Eclipse Phase one shot features a group of Firewall sentinels investigating a hidden hypercorp research facility with a dark secret. There is a short prologue scene involving the hapless test subjects of the facility that serves as a tutorial for the new players. Enjoy!
This is the second in our triptych of portrait painting themed APs. I finally got to run Spirit of 77, a 1970s grindhouse/exploitation themed PbtA RPG. In this scenario, a group of investigators look into a mysterious country club and its new patrons. It seems that the city’s elite are now beholden to a secretive group with a dark agenda…
Over the last month, I’ve run 3 games in 3 different systems (Red Markets, Spirit of 77, and Eclipse Phase) for the Armitage Files group (Bill, Melissa, Jason, Renee, and Aaron). The first was in Red Markets, to show some of the players what the game was like. After they chose a job that involved a famous painting, I decided to add a painting in each of the other games I ran. This is the first of my RPG “triptych.” Enjoy!
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!
Jason came down to Springfield during the Christmas holiday season and I managed to run a one shot of Cthulhu Dark for him and some other RPPR cast members. I’m not sure if I’ll post this to the main feed but as a special reward for backers, I’m posting it now just for you!
When I went on vacation last month, I posted a bonus actual play session featuring Caleb, Aaron, myself and a new player named Holly. The game was run by a friend of the podcast, Bas and it was a great session.
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!
We have a special actual play that will NEVER be posted on the podcast. This is Shaun’s first time running a game for the RPPR group! Using Slasher Flick, he chose a 1980s heavy metal theme for the game. It was certainly an enjoyable game but I decided to make this a special reward for higher tier Patreon backers. Enjoy!
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.
A group of Delta Green agents are sent to Greek Oaks, Minnesota, in order to investigate strange atmospheric conditions affecting the city of 40,000 souls. No other details are provided. The agents just happen to be the nearest available personnel with DG clearance.
