Our 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.
While 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.
We have mentioned vaporwave time and time again on RPPR, but we haven’t really talked about in. Now is the time! Tom, Aaron, Shaun, and I listen to various vaporwave songs and critique them. We also talk about the cinematic masterpiece that is ‘Double Down’ by Neil Breen. Of course, we also review THREE RPG books:
