News: Birk and I are working on a new podcast called Night Clerk Radio. We have a Twitter account set up to make future announcements. We plan to launch it early next year. Stay tuned!

Synopsis: Alien the Role Playing Game is out, based on the long-standing franchise. So how does it stack up? Birk and I have read through the rules and I’ve run a scenario (Chariot of the Gods, soon to be on RPPR Actual Play) so we have some thoughts on it. Find out what we have to say about it and whether its’ worth playing.

News: The RPPR Patreon has a new podcast, Questing for Answers! We’ve posted 2 episodes already and if you’re a patron, your questions can be answered in the next episode.

Synopsis: Origins has come and gone and Birk and I have a blast there. The Shadowrun 6th Edition Beginner Box was released there so we picked up some copies for review. Bridget, our resident Shadowrun GM, joins in to see what’s changed for the new edition. Birk and I discuss a new sci-fi horror RPG, Mothership, as well as the RPGs we played at Origins.

News: RPPR is changing things up for 2019! Listen to this episode for all the details but it includes:

  • New rewards for the RPPR Patreon
  • Changes to our podcast schedule
  • A new music review podcast
  • and a lot more!

Synopsis: A lot has happened this year, but I thought we could focus on something positive, namely the fun we had with tabletop RPGs! Tom, David, Shaun, Bridget, and Birk all share their gaming highlights. From great games on RPPR Tabletop Tales to campaigns like Dagashi (don’t miss the OVA one shot recorded at Gen Con!) and upcoming campaigns, 2018 was very good for tabletop games.
