The Crusading Couch episode 4: story organisation.

This week, in lieu of an Arcanum Quest episode, we have this months Crusading Couch episode. In this podcast we discuss the importance of planning and organising your story. We also have a guest on, our friend Caitlyn. She’s been involved with role playing for a while and we thought she’d offer some interesting insight.

We hope you enjoy this episode of The Crusading Couch. If you did, please share it with your friends.

Farewell from the past, I’m Raymond.

the crusading couch episode 2: traits we like in players

in this episode of our gaming theory podcast we talk about desirable traits in players. we talk about things we like as GMs and as players ourselves. we also get VERY side tracked, but it’s all useful and fun. this one’s a little longer than the last but only by 20 minutes.

if you liked this podcast then please share it 🙂

farewell from the past, I’m Raymond.

the crusading couch; upcoming episodes

our next episode of the crusading couch is going to be titled: “what makes a good player?” i wanted to give the listeners an opportunity to make suggestions in advance of the recording, hence this post.

well be looking at what makes a good player in the eyes of the GM, as well as the view of another player. players might look for someone that doesn’t hog the spot light, where as a GM might be more concerned about whether his players read the setting material.

another episode coming up in the future will deal with the topic of letting go of campaigns and characters. this will focus on campaigns that drag on needlessly. as well as players that port their characters across editions, campaigns, settings, and genres. we have yet to set a date for when we will record that one but it is on the short list.

the next episode(what makes a good player) will be recorded on the 12th of December, so get your suggestions in before then.
