After Hours: Pitching Netflix

After the release of the Bright  teaser trailer, it has become clear to us that Netflix is buying whatever geeky/RPG material they can find. So I convened a round table of the RPPR cast (Caleb, Dan, Tom, and Shaun) to figure out some of the best pitches we could share with Netflix. Find out the secret behind the crying child in a barrel!

RPPR After Hours: DeadEarth and Mutazoid Character Creation Extravaganza

Happy New Year! We have a brand new After Hours to welcome 2017! Tom, Shaun, and I took our favorite post-apocalyptic RPGs with random character generation tables, deadEarth and Mutazoids, and made some characters with them. Then we discussed which team was better. If you enjoy freakish mutants with very randomized traits, then this episode is for you!

RPPR After Hours: Kojima’s Friend Fiction

Aaron, Caleb, and I discuss Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima’s soon-to-be masterpiece of…something? No one is quite sure what the game will be about, but it’s gotta be great! We also review 3 books:

  • CyberRogues: A supplement from our favorite 1980s cyberpunk RPG, Cyberspace! WHY IS THERE A YETI IN THIS BOOK?
  • ApoKERMIS Now! A Ghostbusters International adventure about stopping frat parties…OF THE DAMNED.
  • Abyss: Role play as demons in hell. It turns out that it’s a lot like D&D.

After Hours: Kill the Bean, Drink His Blood

hellsgateIn this review filled episode, we go over FOUR whole books:

  • Hellsgate, a Dark Conspiracy adventure for astronauts, psychics, and cyborg escapees.
  • Broncosaurus Rex: Cretasus Adventure Guide, where Confederates enslave and eat intelligent dinosaurs.
  • Dawn of DNA: A Villains and Vigilantes adventure involving a sperm bank robbery.
  • Spelljammer: Concordance of Arcane Space – learn about how incredibly flammable outer space is in D&D.

We also discuss how movies are really other movies, like how Road House is really a retelling of the Wicker Man. Sean Bean is actually a character trapped in Stay Tuned, which explains why he gets killed so often.

After Hours: Kingstarter

future-kingOur listeners have been sending in some great review fodder, so Caleb reviews Cyberskelter, a scenario anthology for Cyberspace, the same RPG that was responsible for Death Valley Free Prison. I review part of the Future King, a batshit insane RPG/adventure that takes six very specific heroes from history to save King Athur. We also discuss some Kickstarter-related topics, such as a certain con artist and the practicality of Chaosium’s Horror on the Orient Express.
