RPPR Episode 145: Pre Gen Con 2017 Special

News: Be sure to check out the RPPR Patreon for our latest After Hours episode! Pre-order Red Markets today if you haven’t already.  The deadline is September 2!

Synopsis: Gen Con is nearly here! It is the 50th year of the con and RPPR’s 10th year of existence! A lot of the RPPR cast will be at Gen Con this year to celebrate. Here are the official RPPR events:

  • Delta Green: Observer Effect – I am running this for Arc Dream. It is full, but someone may not show up on time, so swing by to see if there is an opening.
  • RPPR Live! Our big event for the year. Meet the cast, ask questions about the podcast, and a lot more!
  • Game Designer Panel: I will talk about my progress on Ruin and several other game designers will be there to answer questions.

Plus we will be attending the Delta Green panel run by Arc Dream. Many of us will be running unofficial games for RPPR fans as well.

If you want to coordinate and meet up with other RPPR fans at Gen Con, read this thread on the RPPR forums to find out what social media to check.

Shout out to Pathfinder Adventurer’s Guide, which I recently received as a review copy. It looks cool from an initial glance and I will have a full review in a future episode.

RPPR Episode 144: The Vulture was Right

News: Reminder that we have a Patreon! Be sure to check out our bonus content via RPPR After Hours. Red Markets is now available to preorder via Backer Kit. We will be recording an episode of RPPR live at Gen Con 50! Check here for details.

Synopsis: After seeing Spiderman: Homecoming, we had to discuss the morality behind the movie’s antagonist, the Vulture. After all, he’s essentially a base raider, so I felt obligated to discuss some of the themes with Aaron, Caleb, and Tom. We also discussed the morality of the superhero genre in general. Plus, anecdotes and shout outs!

RPPR Episode 137: JoJo’s Compelled Aspect

News: The Mixed Six Patreon is up! Please check it out. The Mixed Six is now on iTunes as well.

Synopsis: Many gamers have a tough time grasping the power of Fate rule systems and player disadvantages in general. Aaron, Shaun, and I discuss how Fate aspects work by using anime and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure as a lens to examine how it works best. Character flaws make for better storytelling, as they create drama and conflict. We also have shout outs and anecdotes.
