After Hours: Crossover Chaos

Everyone is excited about the great crossover event happening in a major fictional universe. Of course, I’m talking about the Supernatural/Scooby Doo crossover. I heard something about some crossover movie but who cares about that?

Anyway, Shaun, Tom, and I got together to make our crossover RPG characters. We used random character creation tables from different games to generate our team – from Maid to Beyond the Supernatural.

Don’t Cross the Stream: Infini

Sci-fi films can be about big ideas, but sometimes that isn’t enough. Infini tries to be about some big ideas but the execution leaves much to be desired. Bridget, Caleb, Fae, Thad, and I discuss the movie and our ideas for mining gaming fodder out of it. Things like random tables for doing stupid things in space, to mini games about pretending to be human even when you’re secretly a goo alien!

After Hours: Overland Travel Fails

I experienced several new means of transportation in my recent vacation, including tuk-tuks and catamarans. It made me wonder what vehicles in RPGs would work best in the real world? Aaron, Shaun, Tom, and I discuss some options. We also review:

  • Time and Time Again: (again)
  • Renegade Dreams: A module for Spacetime, a weird cyberpunk RPG.
  • Sweet Wall of Death: A third party module for AD&D that involves giant bees.

Palladium Poisoning: The New West

Shaun is back, just in time to help me guide Faust through the Wild Wild West of Rifts, complete with giant spider robots and racism. Yes, the New West has lots more character classes, guns, and poorly developed plot hooks. But there’s also new mechanics for rodeos! And a traveling medicine show! Plus cactus people and useless character classes!

After Hours: Accute Pony-osis of the Liver

Did you know some people try to hypnotize themselves into believing they are ponies from My Little Pony? Well, I’m not going to link it. But it’s terrible and real. Aaron, Tom, Shaun, and I discuss better things those people should try to hypnotize themselves into being. We also review the following books:

  • Secrets of Shadowaloo
  • Time After Time (Part 2 of Aaron’s ongoing review)
  • Amazing Engine and For Fairy, Queen, and Country
  • Citadel of Fire
