Every month, we publish patron-only podcasts on the RPPR Patreon, with a lot of great material. Some of you are missing out on this, so every month, we will publish a preview of our patron podcasts. This month, we have After Hours, talking about the rich lore of Payday 2 and Don’t Cross the Stream, about video game movies.

We will also be posting different clips on Twitter and on the RPPR Facebook group.

For Delta Green fans, Bridget will be posting two scenarios on her Patreon, for Dream Away Camp and an upcoming scenario!

tabletoptales-logo-mediumNews: A new companion website for our Patreon, RPPR After Hours, is now live. Find all the podcasts and other content without digging through the Patreon archives. Speaking of the Patreon, we have a new milestone: a new weekly podcast featuring campaign actual play. If we get to $1800 a month, RPPR Tabletop Tales will become a weekly free podcast for everyone!

Synopsis: Caleb, Dan, and I discuss scenario design as we workshop a scenario idea I developed after running a few different games for both the RPPR group and the Patreon. We focus on player engagement – the idea that the players have as much agency as possible in the game. We want to avoid ‘cut scenes’ and railroading, among other problems. Plus, there are shout outs and anecdotes.
