RPPR Illustrated: The Best of Ross!

A little over 10 years ago, I began RPPR Actual Play. Since then, we’ve had a lot of great games. Patsy picked some of the more memorable characters I’ve played:

“In the centre, we’ve got the big boss of Role-playing Public Radio,  Ross Payton, enjoying a well-earned tot of rum from the comfort of his  brutalist mcmansion. Around him, anticlockwise from top left, we have a  few choice NPCs- Warbot 5000, the surly twitch-streamer robot from Gate  9; Balgron The Fat, the amiable but devious goblin from The New World;  Cool Rat, the super-rad mascot villain of Sucrose Park; and the sinister  Deer Hunter who terrorised Fallen Flag.

On the outside,  anticlockwise from top left, we have Sheldon Baker, Ace Reporter from  Bryson Springs, as he begins to ‘see the strings’; Hard-boiled social  worker McBain from The Haunting, grittily reviewing his new case; Agent  Provost of God’s Teeth, leaving a token of his appreciation for his  co-workers; Kowloon and Ludwig the architecture-quoting dronkey of the  Brutalists, friends to children everywhere; heroic military  engineer/newspaper editor Castor of Nagalisitu, delivering a mighty  dressing-down to a treacherous comrade; and Bartleby of Know Evil,  fighting for their life against a horrifying Exsurgent threat under the  surface of Luna.”

Don’t Cross the Stream: Diner Scenes

We’re trying something a bit different for this episode. Instead of focusing on one movie or show, we are talking about a type of scene in many movies and shows: the diner scene. I got the idea from watching Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories on Netflix. Bridget, Fae, Thad, Kat, and I discuss how we can take this scene and create an interesting storytelling game about it.

Check out Cry by Bridget and Fae!

After Hours Bonus Podcast: A Discussion of The Room

Shaun and I watched The Room at the Alamo Drafthouse last year. It was his first time watching it. After it, we discussed the movie. What did Sahun think of the cult classic? It’s…complex.

I have been saving this podcast for a rainy day and since I am heading to Los Angeles for Patrecon (a conference for Patreon creators Nov 1 to 3) I am posting it now. We will still have a regular episode of After Hours this month and a new episode of Don’t Cross the Stream, but scheduling issues have kept me from recording them yet. When I get back, I will get them recorded and posted as soon as I can.

Don’t Cross the Stream: Blade 1 and 2

For our spooky October episode, we head back to the late 90s and early 2000s for a double dose of Blade, the vampire hunter. Wesley Snipes looked very cool in his sunglasses and leather trench coat as he murdered the World of Darkness, one bloodsucker at a time. Birk, Richard, and newcomer Kat from Best Pal Brigade joins us as we figure out what kind of fun games we can make from the first cool superhero movies.
