RPPR Episode 160: Beachside Bases OR How to Create a Base for Base Raiders

News: We now have RPPR merchandise available for sale! Check out our storefront and buy t-shirts, coffee mugs, and more.

Synopsis: Developing an idea for an abandoned superhero or villain base for my RPG Base Raiders can be difficult. Aaron, Shaun, and I discuss how to come up with interesting bases. I describe a scenario idea I have and we collectively brainstorm a base for that scenario.

In a new segment, I interview a game designer, Brie Sheldon, about their new upcoming Kickstarter, Turn, a RPG about living as a lycanthrope in a small town. It launches on October 31 and you can learn more at Brie’s website.

RPPR Special: Base Raiders Power Creation

Base Raiders is a fun game, but creating new super powers can be complicated. Someone asked for a podcast that helped clarify the process, so here it is. Tom, Shaun, and I talk about how to calculate the refresh and skill point cost of a new super power (or strange skill as it is referred to in the book). If you need a copy of Base Raiders, it’s on sale right now, along with my other books!

Follow along on page 113 of the book (the power trapping chart) or use the handy PDF version, available here.

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!
