We were asked by Burning Games to play their new game about the colonisation of America by monsters who ride into war on dragons. It’s meant to be a game that deals with issues of exploitation and prejudice but honestly; I don’t think they take a hard enough stance.
We had fun playing the game, so I hope you enjoy listening to us fumble our way through temples, and jungles, and strange monsters. This was the first time we’d played a card resolution RPG on the show as well, so enjoy that. (more…)
We did a crossover of sorts recently. We had Lachlan from Fantasy Cartography on the show to play a little bit of The Deep Forest with us. It was a blast!
For those that are unaware, The Deep Forest is a collaborative map drawing game built off of The Quiet Year. It’s about communities reestablishing themselves in a postcolonial world. The hardships they face, and how they overcome them. Our game feature some violence, and a few absurd jokes; but we still played to the subject matter, so just be aware that it might be a bit emotional for some. (more…)
It’s the last episode of Blades In The Dark; of course the players don’t know that.
The Spectres are breaking into prison to break someone out of prison…and oh my, the prison is Bedlam. A warren of impetus infused restraints, cells, locks, and doors. Wardens with strange other worldly power. A space void of light, hope, and peace of mind.
Happy holidays, this is the last episode of [insert quest here] for 2017. You’re all wonderful people and we are looking forward to making content for you next year. New episodes will be back on the 8th of January.
In this episode though Fazio is back in prison, and Zephira is trying to solve Nain’s possession problem. The whole time setting up for a score in bedlam.
After our daring, dangerous, and deadly rescue of Fitz our crew has some time to reflect on where they’ve ended up and what lies ahead. Also we have a barge now!Content Warning; this episode has some allusions to self harm, and a scene that depicts a flogging.
We’re back from a short break with more of our Arcus campaign!
And what a perfect episode to return with. We have a new player joining us for a session so we’ll get a refresher on the rules of play. The Specters could use the extra hands as well, as they continue their search for Fitz.
