Apologies

My apologies for any difficulty anyone has had accessing the actual play recordings on this site. All of the links in all of the posts have been updated and should all work now.

I am in the process of migrating everything to a streaming server and putting everything in an rss feed and thence onto iTunes and or Stitcher. I will advise here when that’s done.

Thanks for listening, more games to come.

Savage Cyberpunk – Actual Play

Savage Cyberpunk Session1 (mp3)

When our Deadlands game wound up, I asked the players what they wanted next. A discussion with my better half, ok really she’s the better 7/8ths of this pair, but I digress, lead to the idea that we would do shorter more defined campaigns rather than the monolithic unending campaign with which we’re all so familiar. The group decided on a Bladerunner-esque Cyberpunk game and to continue with Savage Worlds as our game system.

Session 0 yielded the following:

  1. Bladerunner-esque with sort of a noir feel.
  2. Cybernetics are a real thing and not uncommon though some people have a negative reaction.
  3. Pit fighting gladiatorial arenas are the biggest spectator sport.
  4. Replicants exist but are negatively thought of.
  5. Clones exist, but cloning humans is technically illegal.

The resulting characters turned out to be the pretty typical net running group:

  1. Hacker
  2. Drone Jockey
  3. Street Samurai
  4. Hunter Killer
  5. Assassin
  6. Childlike Replicant with a doll fetish

The attached mp3 is session 1 of the campaign in its unedited (who has time for editing) raw form which I prefer because it gives more of the impression of the game play (including distractions and unassociated sounds).

Hope you enjoy,

Actual Plays from OrcCon 2015

I ran these games at OrcCon 2015 in Los Angeles, CA.

Carnivale (mp3)

Carnivale is a gothic horror game set in the Ravenloft game setting and played using the Fate Core rules. Travelling the highways and byways of the lands between Barovia and the Sea of Shadows entertaining the masses, lightening their hearts and their purses. You see things that the everyday people do not. They call your kind vagabonds, gypsies and worse, but you’ve seen the shadows that lay across the land, the dark heart pumping its ichor into the nooks and crannies of existence befouling the very air that you breathe. You call yourselves Vistani and you have seen things that the townsfolk fear to utter even in the safety of their homes. But, will even the mighty Vistani survive the storm brewing in the mists?  Carnivale is a gothic horror fantasy game set in Ravenloft, the Domain of Dread.

Thieves’ World (mp3)

Thieves’ World is a gritty fantasy game set in Sanctuary, the city of the, “Thieves’ World,” books. Welcome to Sanctuary. Oh don’t worry, Sanctuary is perfectly safe, just keep your hands near your weapons and your eyes open, oh and you might want to stay away from the Maze at night. Make sure you stop by the Vulgar Unicorn for a pint though, there’s always a good story to be heard there. Sanctuary is always dangerous, but something dark is moving in the shadows and narrow alleys, something that has even the most hardened of Sanctuary’s denizens afraid. Many people have left or are making plans to leave and those that remain talk of the end of the world. Thieves’ World is a gritty street level fantasy setting based on the book series.
