I heard Caleb invented the mechanical ghouls that speak in announcer voice that lurk in the walls of Tom's bedroom.

If he can run Eclipse Phase and have the game be understandable to the listeners than he might be the greatest GM I have ever encounter.

So when do Caleb and Ross duel to the death for GM of RPPR?

...that's how this works, right?

I don't think Ross is likely to duel to the death for anything. Not that I doubt he'd siv a dude, I just don't think you'd be able to call the situation a duel.

Just had a passing though but Eclipse Phase is kind of like this RPG generation's Wrath: The Oblivion. I hear alot of people talking about it and how much fun it would be and nobody seemed to actually play it.

Hmm. I propose a duel of wits!

Ehh. We've run and played it, but as most things in our groups hands- it turned a little zany.
we did have transhuman horror, different bodies, space, space mice, corporations taking over venus, sapient dolphins, orangs, corgies, and a 13 year old in a gorilla's body.

But I eventually got sick of having to look-up the technology every-time.  It was very cowboybebop-totalrecall-palmereldritch-reboot-GONZO-murderhappy-spacerape-clusterfucky-awesome.

If you're going to run it, just go for it. Don't mull it over too long or instead of playing-  you won't.
How long has Ross been whining about wanting to run it? I think this next GenCon will mark the one year.

Caleb- I believe in you. Like Nike says, "Just doit."

And yes Ross, we want you on fire so Tom can make fun of your flaming announcer voice. BaZing!
I wish I was Tom.

Granted, you are now Tom.

Caleb, though you are new to RPPR and gaming in general, clearly you have a lot of talent in this craft. All of your PCs are totally awesome, and I just learned that Andrew's Fortune was not only your first time as a GM, but also a scenario you wrote yourself after playing 3 or 4 disjointed games and reading a tutorial from the CoC rulebook. I have been GMing for several months and have no idea how I'd write a scenario for a Dirty World, let alone one so memorable.

I hereby dedicate this thread to Caleb and all of his mad genius. Shine on you crazy devil, shine on.

Been saying this since Gaga 2.0.

Caleb is a fantastic player and a great GM.

I'd love to hear him do a CoC or Fear itself game.

Well, I mean, the show's eventually going to end. Once Ross is publishing holoscripts in Neo-Hollywood he's gonna be too busy with snorting syn-coke off of alien hookers to do a podcast, which in 2032 replaces Ham Radio as the losers 'sport' of choice. Mid-West Podcast Thunderdome could be, like, a get together in a couple decades. See old friends. Kill them. You know, fun. For us.
