[Live. Love. Die.]: RESE Mission 3

The final episode of our mini playtest with Alex and Ryan.

This week we telegraph hard that our desire to explore one of the death moves, and we do deliver.
Our pilots run their newly improved mechs through their paces. The ground crews engage in some bonding. And then everything burns.

Content Warning: this episode depicts the emotionally charged death of a player character. We all were pretty moved by it, so I wanted to warn y’all that it could get emotional.

Interview With Luke

Luke is a wonderful Australian RPG Designer. They have been the inspiring force behind many great ideas in our community, and has made some really wonderful games.

We had a great time talking about their work, how they’ve inspired other designers, and why the Australian RPG maker scene is populated with such weird & interesting stuff. (more…)

[Blades In The Dark]: Arcus


Welcome to Arcus, an island city. Floating in the sea of clouds. Populated by refugees, academics, mystics, criminals, and entrepreneurs. All of them survivors of a shattered world. We join a group of scoundrels fresh out of Bedlam, looking to carve out a place for them and theirs. Hopefully we’ll see them grow into a powerful organisation, and overcome daring obstacles. We might also see them suffer. Strife from their past, their relationships, and their ambition will all test their resolve.

Should they endure, glory awaits them!

Join us, in our longest series to date. In a world of our own creation; built using The Quiet Year, and run using Blades In The Dark. This is Blades In The Dark: Arcus.

[Monsterhearts]: Four Now

The finale of our adventures in Monsterhearts, for a little while at least.

We had a discussion about our feelings on the game at the end of the episode rather than write up reflections; cause this was a short campaign.

No new episode of the podcast on the 28th, as we will be on vacation.
