Happy New Year! We have a brand new After Hours to welcome 2017! Tom, Shaun, and I took our favorite post-apocalyptic RPGs with random character generation tables, deadEarth and Mutazoids, and made some characters with them. Then we discussed which team was better. If you enjoy freakish mutants with very randomized traits, then this episode is for you!
In our first episode of Palladium Poisoning, Shaun and I try to explain the basic premise of Rifts to Faust as well as some of the character classes. So if you want to hear about what life 300 years after nuclear apocalypse looks like, then dig in!
Shaun and I act as Virgil to Faust’s Dante as we descend into the Tempest that is Wraith the Oblivion. Spectres, the Hierarchy and occasional Neverborn Malfean are just a few of the hazards we’ll face in our journey to the dark heart of the Labyrinth.
- Hellsgate, a Dark Conspiracy adventure for astronauts, psychics, and cyborg escapees.
- Broncosaurus Rex: Cretasus Adventure Guide, where Confederates enslave and eat intelligent dinosaurs.
- Dawn of DNA: A Villains and Vigilantes adventure involving a sperm bank robbery.
- Spelljammer: Concordance of Arcane Space – learn about how incredibly flammable outer space is in D&D.
We also discuss how movies are really other movies, like how Road House is really a retelling of the Wicker Man. Sean Bean is actually a character trapped in Stay Tuned, which explains why he gets killed so often.
Special guest Tom joins us as we discuss the furriest of all oWoD games, Werewolf the Apocalypse. Between tribes, auspices, breeds, the Triat, and the Umbra, there’s more than enough special snowflakes for everyone! It’s time to fight Captain Planet villains for Gaia 😀
Demon the Fallen was one of the last games in the Old World of Darkness and boy is it a game. Play a fallen angel returned to earth and do…things? First read 80 pages of in-game fiction to get a sense of the very detailed history of the setting that totally contradicts a lot of the other games in the Old World of Darkness, then we can talk.
Also read this promo comic actually produced by White Wolf to promote the game.
We have a special actual play that will NEVER be posted on the podcast. This is Shaun’s first time running a game for the RPPR group! Using Slasher Flick, he chose a 1980s heavy metal theme for the game. It was certainly an enjoyable game but I decided to make this a special reward for higher tier Patreon backers. Enjoy!
In this episode, Shaun, Aaron, and I try to explain the mindfuck that is Mage the Ascension to poor Faust. Avatars? Spheres? Traditions? Not to mention the dreaded GILGUL. It’s all Greek to Faust and even we’re hazy on the details. Prepare your tass, it’s time to fight the Technocracy!
The first installment in the long-awaited Giovanni Chronicle, The Last Supper takes the characters to the subterranean lair/mansion of Claudius Giovanni, where the food they eat will be the last to ever touch their lips.
The characters become caught in the war between the clans of the Camarilla and those trying to form the Giovanni. Their actions during the Renaissance will shape the modern World of Darkness – and determine if they will ever see another night.
Well, that’s the description of the scenario. Whether it lives up to Blood Fist, Blood Goose, and a certain populist merchant remains to be seen.
