A.k.a. “the last time before I fuck something up and start just trying to get to the end of the campaign before I’m crushed by the weight of my combined mistakes.”

Thanks, brain.

My gf wrote about RPGs and several of our campaigns in this posh literary magazine: lrb.co.uk/the-paper/v44/n11/st

I often get my best ideas for framing scenes in the 3h before a game. But I need to remember that that doesn’t mean I should avoid prepping at all until then…

The PCs in my Root game brought the ridiculous chaos tonight and I love them for it.

Anyone want to come on a podcast to do a 1-shot of Champions? And then talk about it afterwards?

I can’t wait to share the podcast I recorded tonight with everyone!

I just have to finish editing it! And the two episodes before it!

And schedule, record, and edit the four episodes that will come before those!

But it’ll be worth it.

Does anyone have an RPG based around Operation Mincemeat / The Man Who Never Was?

The entire first half of this film is devoted to collaborative character building.

I brought back an NPC who’s been away for maybe 2 months worth of sessions and my players and their characters cheered. I was… not expecting that response.

@SkipSandwichDX I can relate. I just finished a campaign with a group and they all are staying together to do another game with me and I was like “really? You weren’t just playing out of obligation?”

Here’s an argument that thinking of RPGs as a “storytelling” medium is unnecessarily limiting, and they should instead be considered as a way to “put yourself in another world.”


@VestigialLung That was a good episode. It seems like Marvel is trying to simulate a superhero world rather than allow for superhero stories, to hear how some matchups are just numerically unbalanced.

Reading through The Watch and feeling a bit nervous about the between-mission bits (I.e. “most of the game”).

For those of you who’ve played, is there worthwhile prep to do for those parts, or do the mission consequences tend to snowball into enough stuff back at camp that I needn’t worry?

The examples in the books have things about the fort being attacked or the squad caught in enemy territory.

@AlexisSara Heck yeah!

I’m going to be the Mistress of Ceremonies for our group. The whole mission structure looks really interesting.

Excited that my group has chosen The Watch for our next campaign.

What I love about the minions is how they commit to each other. They fully and unhesitatingly go all-in for each other, no matter how cornball (or risky) the idea. Imagine having a crew of friends who you all believed in each other like that.

@VestigialLung LOL. 😹

I’ll have to listen to that System Mastery as well.
