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.

After Hours: Kill Team Six

If you had to lead a squad of soldiers in the Warhammer 40k universe, who would they be and what is their mission? That’s the question I put to Aaron, Tom, and Shaun. I also reviewed two fine books:

  • Spies of Lightelf: A Judge’s Guild supplement for The WIlderlands campaign setting. A kingdom of gnomes, infested with spies, and random plant encounter tables.
  • Night of the Shark: An AD&D adventure about sharks and shark men and a monstrous entity called the Apodalypse, even though it’s shark based and that name makes no sense.

Don’t Cross the Stream: Speed Racer

The 2008 movie version of Speed Racer is a trip and a favorite of many of our cast members. Bridget, Noah, Richard, Thad, and I discuss how the overly-saturated visual chaos and splendor of this movie can be translated into gaming fodder. From civilization building games that explore the cost of building the tracks used in the movie, to using slot cars in a RPG, we have it all!
