Candlewick AP
« on: January 20, 2010, 06:31:02 PM »
This might sound a little weird...but am I the only that thinks Tom's character in Candlewick seems to have shades of Pontifix?  I can't place my finger on it but I keep picturing Pontifix behind Tom's kid, rubbing his hands together and saying "Good..good."

I think he means Pastoral Manor...
While on the subject, I do enjoy Tom being able to play characters like that. At each others throats, which is basically calling yourself an idiot whenever they disagree

But since we're on the subject of Candlewick, I really liked Ben's characters. As soon as the groundskeeper appeared, I was trying not laugh loudly at work.

I also think Ross was great in this one, lemmings to kill the mongeese that were killing the snakes!

Yes my mistake, I meant Ross.   I think its the safest AP thus far.   And on that note, I know some people might not like it as much as the others, but I really enjoyed the tutorial format.  Hopefully you'll do more like this one, lots of edu-tainment!

Yeah I had a question about that, I got the impression at one point that someone was filming or doing a more in depth recording, because of all retroactive changes in explanations (and if I recall correctly, there was a long pause after one such thing and someone said something quietly like "action" before it resumed).  Am I just over thinking?

I thought they where recording seperately but then the dude mentioned "we're running low on tape" and since I don't think they'd be used cassette tapes to record I assume it was footage for a promotional video or something.

Yeah Shane had a friend record parts of the game on video so they could make promotional videos - I haven't heard the ETA of the videos though.

I haven't finished listening, but I'm really enjoying the Candlewick Manor AP so far. Ben Baugh really nails the tone of the game--wicked, horrific comedy--perfectly, and the players ran with all of his fabulous character concepts. I'm pretty sure the next time I've got some spare cash, I'm gonna pick up the MaoCT and the CM books.

The introduction of the groundskeeper was my favorite part so far.

I really liked that NPC, I would totally make one of my relationships with him if I was playing in a Candlewick Manor game...
