Don’t Cross the Stream: Gantz: O

Gantz is a hyper violent sci-fi battle royale series popular in Japan. It started as a manga, became an anime, then two live action movies, and now a CGI movie. Gantz: O adapts a story arc deep in the story, appearing over halfway through the main plot. Bridget, Fae, Thad, Richard, and I discuss what we thought of the movie and how it could be turned into a game.

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.

After Hours: Swole Trek

A comic series about evil Next Generation Star Trek has come to my attention so we spend most of this episode dissecting it and how this can be applied to RPGs. Sleeveless swole Picard steals the Enterprise so he can go murder Klingons. In other words, he’s a murderhobo.

Shaun also reviews an adventure from Dungeon Nov/Dec 2000 about a unicorn missing its horn.

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
