This is Baz’s cat, heard at various points in this episode.

News: RPPR episodes are going to be a bit slower because I want to ensure quality episodes. We should have some game designer workshops this year because Caleb and I are both working on various projects.  Our weekly livestreams (every Sunday!) on the RPPR Patreon Discord are going strong with better quality audio. Join the Patreon to get an invite to the Discord!

Baz has set up a Minecraft realm for fans of his Twitch. Watch a stream to get invite info!

At Night Clerk Radio, Birk and I have recently discussed themusic of Unsolved Mysteries and our upcoming episode reviews Yig, a Cthulhu Mythos album from Cryo Chamber.

Synopsis: One page games are only growing in popularity but what makes a good one? Baz has an idea for his own one page game so Birk and I talk to him about it. We discuss some one page games and what we like in a good one page game. Some of our examples are:

What’s a Vaporwave
Party Monster, Monster Party
Honey Heist
Cthulhu Dark

Synopsis: We are preparing for a Blades in the Dark campaign, so Caleb, Birk, and I talk about planning heists as players. Heists are harder for some players to comprehend because force isn’t always an option. Discretion and cunning are harder to learn than murderhoboery, but hopefully this will help!

Synopsis: Running and playing tabletop games online has become extremely popular lately so Birk, Kyle (from Best Pal Brigade featured in our episode art) and I discuss our experiences.
