RPPR Episode 142: Fallen Flag Post Mortem

We recently finished posting Fallen Flag, a Red Markets campaign, so I got Caleb, David, Shaun, and Faust together to discuss it. We talk about everything from creating the enclave to individual character arcs. If you haven’t caught up with Fallen Flag, check out our campaign page, which links all of the episodes. I’ll get Tom and Aaron to discuss the campaign in a segment in a future RPPR episode.

Interview with Eli Kurtz about Blackwoods setting for Savage Worlds

I recently spoke to Eli Kurtz, the man behind a new Kickstarter for a fantasy campaign setting for the Savage Worlds system. “The Blackwood is a fantasy setting inspired by folklore and high-flying martial arts action. It’s Grimm’s Tales meets Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It’s The Witcher┬áseries meets Kung Fu Hustle. It’s Iron Monkey meets Brotherhood of the Wolf. You are errants, a class of wandering adventurers, who search a landscape of deadly beauty for a way to save the settled folk of the Elder Kingdom from ruin.”

Learn more by visiting the Kickstarter for the campaign or check out Mythic Gazetteer. Eli can be contacted via Twitter.

RPPR Episode 141: Out of the Can

News: We are running a giveaway of five copies of Rise of the Dungeon Master, a graphic novel biography of Gary Gygax. If you want to enter, post a picture of your favorite D&D character sheet in the comments or tweet it @rosspayton with the hashtag #DnDRPPRCharacterSheet. We will pick the winners on May 10.

Synopsis: Running published (or canned) adventures is often fun but challenging. Dan, Tom, and I discuss what we like in published scenarios. I focus on the last six Delta Green scenarios I ran from our recent Working Group Icarus campaign from Kali Ghati to Observer Effect. There will be no post mortem of Icarus because they were just published scenarios strung together but this is as close as we’ll get to it. We also have shout outs and anecdotes!
