After Hours: Left Behind and d20 Modern Rapture The Second Coming

I recently found a copy of Rapture: The Second Coming, a d20 modern setting book and realized we had to talk about it here. But in order to understand this…unique setting, some of the RPPR cast (Caleb, Aaron, and Birk) and I watched the Left Behind movies. What is the Rapture? You can learn the theological background to this belief system with a 2 hour documentary on Youtube from Renegade Cuts or you can just listen to us dig through a weird book made in the height of the d20 shovelware era.

After Hours: Just Mall Ninja Things

A discussion of tactical blowguns during a Blades in the Dark game got me thinking about mall ninjas. A mall ninja is a person who loves ‘tactical’ gear, weird knives and useless accessories for firearms. I got Birk, Noah, and Baz together to look through some Shadowrun and Cyberpunk source books to find the equipment most suitable for mall ninjas in our world.

After Hours: Dark Conspiracy – Nightsiders the Musical!

After seeing Hamilton, I’ve realized that RPGs have yet to conquer the musical. I assembled some musical experts (Michelle, Aaron, and David) to discuss turning a RPG scenario into a musical. I picked Nightsiders, an adventure from Dark Conspiracy because it has zombies and it’s been a while since we’ve looked at Dark Conspiracy.

After Hours: Rifts Bestiary Volume One

Palladium is still out there, publishing new books. I rounded up Birk, Tom, and Rob from the Orpheus Protocol to examine their latest offering, Rifts Bestiary Volume One. It’s mostly reprinted monsters from older books, but they’ve sprinkled in some new ones.

News: We are still doing weekly livestreams on the Discord! Sometime later this month we will be screening my movie, Motor Home from Hell. Stay tuned for details!

After Hours: Iron Sky RPG Combat Example and the Divided States of America

I recently found out that a RPG based on the movie Iron Sky is in production. The developer posted a 6400 word example of play on a Kickstarter update. I invited Caleb, Birk, and Rob from the Orpheus Protocol to analyze the rules given in the example. We also talk about the TV Tropes page about the Divided States of America, which increasingly feels relevant today.

Check out the Orpheus Protocol today if you haven’t already.

News: Our next RPPR Livestream video watching party is on May 17 at 2 pm CST on the RPPR Patreon Discord. See you there!
