RPPR Live at Gen Con 2018

Role Playing Public Radio, the Ennie Award winning RPG podcast, will record a live episode of their show. We will talk about Gen Con, take questions from the audience, & more! We wound up playing a game of Maid, reviewing a board game, and answering a lot of audience questions.

Thanks to Adam from RPX for recording the questions.

RPPR Episode 155: Jumpsuit Hedonism – 70s Sci-fi in gaming

News: RPPR B-Sides Volume 4: Unknown Markets is now available! Listen to incomplete Unknown Armies and Red Markets campaigns run by Caleb and I, and many one shots for various systems! We’re also going to Origins next week. Caleb is running demos of Party Fowl (BACK IT NOW ON KICKSTARTER!) and Red Markets.

Synopsis: I recently got my print copy of Mutant Crawl Classics so I have been thinking a lot about the science fiction of the 1970s. From movies like Logan’s Run to comics like Kamandi, it is a unique era and worth examining for gaming fodder. Thad and I talk about how to use it in games and what makes it worth checking out. We also have shout outs and anecdotes!

Synopsis: After running The Reign of Terror for Call of Cthulhu 7th edition, I started thinking about how historical settings should be used in RPGs. Bridget, who ran several Fate games set in medieval Japan, and Thad, who is Thad, come in to discuss the topic. We also have shout outs and an anecdote!
