Hack The Planet, interview with Fraser Simons

We heard about an awesome game being made on Kickstarter recently, and we just had to talk to the designer.

Fraser Simons is the creator of Hack The Planet; a cyberpunk, climate fiction, Blades Hack. He took the time out of his morning to chat with us about his cool new project.
We’re very excited to see Hack The Planet get released, for whole bunch of reasons. Including, the fact that some Australian writers are contributing to it!
We hope that you enjoy the interview, and please check out the Kickstarter. (more…)


Interview with Matt, co-creator of Bodycount

Matthew Corrin and Morgan Lean have a kickstarter running right now for their new game, Bodycount. Bodycount is a hyperviolent cyberpunk roleplaying game, with a focus on dealing harm to anyone that stands in your way.

We sat down with Matt to have a chat about the game, what spurred it’s creation, and what influenced the designers.


Two Sided Quest: A Single Moment

This is the first episode of a new project from Ellery and Ray.
In this ongoing series they will play Two Person Role Playing Games, and discuss what they learnt from playing them.

The first game they played was A Single Moment, a game that attempts to emulate samurai movies about rival warriors. (more…)

First Look: [Angel Project]

Ellery, Caitlyn, Sofi, and Ray got together to playtest a bit of Angel Project.

Angel Project is an upcoming RPG from the folks behind Magical Fury (find more of their stuff here.) You play potential members of an elite fighting group. And through the course of play become armed with special armoured fighting suits. 
It takes some elements of the magical girl genre and blends in more sci-fi elements, military hardware. For us a key touch stone was Bubblegum Crisis.

Good Society Interview

We had Vee and Hayley on the show to talk to us about their new Jane Austen RPG, Good Society. It’s got some really interesting setup mechanics that help you tailor the game to your groups style.
It was a pleasure catching up with them again. If you’d like to talk to them about all they have going on, why not head to Ettin Con? Vee and Hayley will be there running games.

First Look: [Night Witches]

Guest GM Lex come on to run us through our first game of Night Witches.
Night Witches is an RPG by Jason Morningstar about Russian World War 2 bomber pilots, in an all Female unit. It’s about the struggles they faced, the horrors they endured, and brave acts they performed.
For this episode we had an all lady group of players, including a whole bunch of new people.

[Blades In The Dark]: Arcus 22

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.

Hopefully the Spectres all get out safe!


First Look: Escape From Triassic Park

We brought back a very special crew of players to try out a really silly micro rpg; Escape From Triassic Park! In this game you play as genetically re-engineered dinosaurs; trying to escape an amusement park you’ve been trapped in. Sofi, Ellery, and Caitlyn came along to try this out with Ray.
