RPPR Episode 167: Origins 2019 Wrap Up and Shadowrun 6th Edition Beginner Box Review

News: The RPPR Patreon has a new podcast, Questing for Answers! We’ve posted 2 episodes already and if you’re a patron, your questions can be answered in the next episode.

Synopsis: Origins has come and gone and Birk and I have a blast there. The Shadowrun 6th Edition Beginner Box was released there so we picked up some copies for review. Bridget, our resident Shadowrun GM, joins in to see what’s changed for the new edition. Birk and I discuss a new sci-fi horror RPG, Mothership, as well as the RPGs we played at Origins.

RPPR Episode 162: 2018 Year in Review

News: RPPR is changing things up for 2019! Listen to this episode for all the details but it includes:

  • New rewards for the RPPR Patreon
  • Changes to our podcast schedule
  • A new music review podcast
  • and a lot more!

Synopsis: A lot has happened this year, but I thought we could focus on something positive, namely the fun we had with tabletop RPGs! Tom, David, Shaun, Bridget, and Birk all share their gaming highlights. From great games on RPPR Tabletop Tales to campaigns like Dagashi (don’t miss the OVA one shot recorded at Gen Con!) and upcoming campaigns, 2018 was very good for tabletop games.
