RPPR Episode 151: Shotgun Summaries

News: I am going on vacation later this month, but don’t worry! There will be a lot of podcasts this month. We also have a new system for scheduling online games for the RPPR Patreon using our Discord server.

Synopsis: There is an annual contest on the Delta Green email list for writing short scenarios. The Shotgun Scenario contest forces contestants to write the best possible DG scenario under 1500 words. It’s gone on since 2005 and last year had some great entries. Dan, David, Tom, and I read a bunch of them to discuss what we liked about them. We also have shout outs and anecdotes!

  1. Fun fact: “Because the beauty of the white ape…” has a wordcount of 1488. 🙂

    That was supposed to be part of the joke, but Ed didn’t post the wordcount because it was a “bonus” scenario.

  2. Concerning the TV-Series “Dark”:
    the second season was announced at the end of last year and production should start this year 🙂

  3. Hey y’all thanks for talking about Stop Repo. I had a lot of fun working on it, and anyone who thinks a ‘reasonable’ PC can solve the game in a single persuade roll has never met a Delta Green agent 🙂

  4. Thanks for the shout out David! I had a lot of fun writing that scenario. Ross, you got the central moral dilemma of that shotgun perfectly, and I appreciate your take.

    OMG I GOT A HIGHSCHOOL SKA BAND JOKE OUT OF IT! Thanks guys. You made my day. Maybe someday I’ll get to run my scenario for you guys at Gen Con. Hopefully going this year.

  5. This was certainly a lot of fun and fairly interesting thanks for the episode guys!
