RPPR Episode 46: PvP is tearing us apart

Role playing is a collaborative hobby but conflicts between players and the GM inevitably arise. Cody, Dan, Tom and I discuss how adversarial gaming can affect your game and how to deal with it. RJ and I also talk about the new online tabletop section of the RPPR forums and we get into a discussion of the differences between long standing campaigns and shorter ones. We also have a few anecdotes and shout outs:

  • The RPPR Steam Group: If you play games over Steam, then join us and play l4d2 or other games with Ross or other RPPR fans.
  • Battlefield Baseball: A crazy Japanese action movie about baseball and zombies.
  • Coup de Torchon: A brilliant crime movie and an “engrossing and unsettling meditation on moral collapse.”
  • Rocket Knight: vidya game about a steam powered opossum knight.
  • The Hidden: Great HL2 mod. One invisible monster vs a team of commandos. Who will win?
  • Player Strategy Guide: A 4E book for players new to the game. Good advice on tactics and role playing.
  • Joe the Barbarian: Grant Morrison written comic of a child’s fantasy world. Think Narnia but crazier.

RPPR Episode 44: Don’t Hate the Game

In this episode, we have a special guest: Mike from Bear Swarm. We discuss why edition wars and hating on games in discussions is a pointless endeavor and why people endlessly flame each other over them.  We also talk about Catalyst Game Labs and of course, Tom has a letter.

Shout Outs:

  • Triangle: A great horror film that is better the less you know about it before you watch it.
  • Pandemic: A board game about stopping a global pandemic. You usually fail.
  • Imaginary Monsters: A web comic about monsters and dungeons.
  • Poo: A card game about monkeys flinging poo.
  • Casshern: The live action Japanese 2007 sci-fi flick. Crazy effects and nonsensical plot.
  • MD Geist: Ultra violent 80s anime that features gamer logic.
  • Sin Titulo: Eisner nominated web comic. Very creepy and a great read.

We have new forums

We have switched our forum software from BBpress to SMF. Check out the new forums and rant about Rifts and old Genesis video games. I’ve posted some bits from a new dark superhero campaign I’m working on, inspired by the Watchmen.
