Synopsis: The Final Revelation is the shortest complete campaign we’ve run at RPPR, but its complexity and depth merits a good post mortem discussion. Caleb, Aaron, and I discuss our experiences playing and running the game, purism vs pulp in cthulhu mythos gaming, player agency in RPG design, and other related topics. Tom wasn’t able to make this episode so no letter but we do have shout outs and a very special anecdote about shark fighting.

Shout Outs

  • Escape Goat 2: A great puzzle game about a magical goat and his mouse BFF.
  • Silver Screen Fiend: A new book from Patton Oswalt about his addiction to cinema.
  • Bad Robots: A UK prank show themed around malfunctioning technology.
  • Concrete Grove: Not quite a solid recommendation, but I read the entire book for what that’s worth.
  • Adult Swim Infomercials: JOIN THE ANTI-HAROLD TASK FORCE BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE
  • Whiplash: A film about jazz, abuse, and obsession.
  • Tokyo Ghoul: an anime about the occult, cannibalism, and milquetoast student protagonists. Breaking new ground in anime tropes!
  • Touch of Cloth: A hilarious cop show parody similar to Police Squad, but way, way dirtier.
