Giant Guardian Generation can handle super robot, real robot, AND crazy-ass psychological Eva-style games.

I would love to see what Caleb would make/do for a Delta Green game about Scientology. Because if they're not worshiping Yogsogoth or ONE of the Elder Gods, I don't know what's going on in there.

It's already been done in the original DG - see '"The New Age" by John Tynes. Certain DG authors have basically admitted that the Enolsis Foundation is supposed to be the Church of Scientology.

Unfortunately, it's not a good idea to do a a scenario that explicitly involves Scientology by name. The Church of Scientology is extremely trigger-happy and petty when it comes to lawsuits. A scenario about Scientology could never be published, and it seems like Caleb is moving into mostly running games that he writes for publication. Even if he never published the scenario but just posted it on RPPR, I'd say there's still a small amount of risk, at least if the title or description text mentioned Scientology (obviously, they don't have people to listen to every podcast in the world and watch out for negative references).

Has the RPPR crew played that scenario and I missed it?

It was not the RRRP crew but The Unspeakable Oath podcast has some actual plays and one set of them was The New Age. The Unspeakable Oath is hosted by Ross, or at least he has some nebulous affiliation that man was not meant to know.

Damn it, another podcast to catch up on - at least there's only 14 episodes...

It is in the Unspeakable Oath Actual Pay podcast that dog punching occurred.

Shadowrun Returns, the video game, and one of the earlier Shadowrun pen and paper Editions features the "Universal Brotherhood", which is a take off of what you think it is with the appropriate prize inside.

In lue of the Wushu/League game idea discussed on the latest "After Hours" Patreon episode, might I suggest this little image /series of images for inspiration of characters to play:

Has anyone played The End of the World: Zombie Apocalypse?  It uses the EDGE system that provides the base mechanics of Fantasy Flight's Star Wars RPGs, but the big gimmick/feature is that the players create THEMSELVES as characters.  Again, it seems gimmicky, but the EDGE system is pretty gewd, and it might be worth a one-shot.

Hey Ross, do you have a Bookhounds of London game in the can or in the works?

Also I'd love to see someone at RPPR's take on Bloodborne.

Caleb talked a little about Bloodborne on a recent episode, but I'm totally for a Raillery with it.

Adding this on a bit later, did you mean an RPPR tabletop version of Bloodborne? Cause that'd be pretty cool! When I first saw BB I got this image of doing something with Accursed, the Savage Worlds setting.

I'd love to see that. Something like Ross or Aaron playing the game and Caleb trying to guide them through it (and tearing his hair off in the process)
