RPPR Episode 88: Heroes of New Arcadia Post Mortem Round Table Discussion

Just another day for the Heroes of New ArcadiaNews: Just to clarify something about RPPR B-Sides: each volume will be released for free after a 1 year delay. Volume 1 will be released to the public on August 14, 2014. If you want to listen to the 20 AP episodes contained in Volume 1, then you can donate $20 to RPPR. Simple as that!

I also want to give a shout out to comic artist David Faught for his contributions to Base Raiders, which is now in layout.

Also, Hebanon Games is now blogging about game design and RPGs on a regular basis.

Synopsis: The Heroes of New Arcadia campaign is now concluded. In 29 episodes, a ragtag group of self-made superheroes saved the world and ultimately determined its fate. Find out how the concept came to be and what the players thought about it – highlights of the games, surprises, and more. No shout outs or anecdotes this episode because our discussion went long.

I am A Vampire You Can't See Me RPPR News: The first RPPR video is now online. Check it out!

RPPR friend, Pagan Publishing has a Kickstarter going on. Take a look at it.

Arc Dream has a Kickstarter for Sense of the Sleight of Hand Man, a Call of Cthulhu Dreamlands campaign.

Synopsis: The World of Darkness is a massive family of role playing games spanning from 1991 to today. We invite Jason and Aaron, both regulars from the RPPR AP podcast, to discuss the wide range of horror games. As we are more familiar with the old World of Darkness than the new, we spend more time discussing that the new World of Darkness but neither side is neglected. We also discuss how to jump in the World of Darkness, common pitfalls for running games in this universe and some of our favorite books or settings for it. Oh and of course, the metaplot. Tom also has a letter, and we have shout outs and a horror related anecdote from a listener email.

Shout outs:

  • Drifter Broken Road: A post-apocalyptic Western. Shoot outs in the ruins of a bombed out world.

  • Rochard: A fun 2d platformer/puzzle video game on Steam with a great soundtrack.
