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. (more…)
It’s time for the second session of our first Playtest of LLD.
This week we look at more of the moves, Go on a mission, and confront a powerful enemy. This session is closer in format to what we envision a typical game of LLD to look like.
Also; it has Banshees.
Content Warning: this episode includes a gruesome death, mass graves, and the grief caused by both. (more…)
We have an interview for y’all today. We sat down with Christoph to chat about his upcoming game Free Spacer. A game of pulling jobs in space to try and goals of retirement…or something more substantial.
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. (more…)
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.
LANCER is an upcoming Mecha RPG about rugged pilots and their Mechanized Cavalry Mech Suits. We had the chance to play a session with one of our Patrons.
On the planet Em-ewe, the region of Sydan has been seized by foreign insurrectionists. Caught in the crossfire is Alvilda Bondam, daughter of a planetary politician. Our pilots have to exfiltrate her to the Dyna city Spaceport before she’s killed or captured for ransom. They also have transport her across a hostile city before the enemy forces overrun said spaceport.
This week we’re taking a short break from Arcus to bring you another interview with a game designer.
This time we’re talking to Craig Page, a LARP, Jedi, and all around cool guy. Craig came on to talk to us about his LARP project; Kensei. A Martial Tournament larp set in the near future.
