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.

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!

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.

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 These thefts have included bio-samples from a Harvard genetics lab, outdated industrial capacitors from a Edision Electrical junkyard and oddly enough an entire truckload of Cherry Coke from a Mid-Western bottling plant.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.

WoD The Heck: The Last Supper Actual Play

wod-supperThe first installment in the long-awaited Giovanni Chronicle, The Last Supper takes the characters to the subterranean lair/mansion of Claudius Giovanni, where the food they eat will be the last to ever touch their lips.

The characters become caught in the war between the clans of the Camarilla and those trying to form the Giovanni. Their actions during the Renaissance will shape the modern World of Darkness – and determine if they will ever see another night.

Well, that’s the description of the scenario. Whether it lives up to Blood Fist, Blood Goose, and a certain populist merchant remains to be seen.
