Share a great stream/actual play.

“Kids today don’t know they are born” Matthew reminisces about taping sessions. We talk about different styles of actual play, minimally edited vs. full production, then shout out to an example of each: Happy Jacks RPG actual play; and Red Moon roleplaying.

Tales from the Floodplain

Dave’s kind words in our #RPGaDay podcast on the 22nd about the card based game I ran a few years ago, made me go to the the darkest depths of my hard drive to see if I could find the files. I’d remembered I had laid them out in Pages, back when it was good. I thought that might be able to convert them to PDF and put them online here.

I found them, and more than that I found I had already made a PDF file that put the system, the adventure and all the cards together. Dave insisted I had made it ten years ago. I said five, and it turns out to have been seven, the file is dated 2011. And therein lies my shame…

I remembered the circumstances of the games creation. On a whim, I decided to participate in a thing called GameChef. Turns out it’s happening again right now, you have a week (two weekends, so actually, nine days) to write and submit a game with a limited word count. Well, YOU don’t because it’s almost finished for this year. But I did, back in 2011. I wrote it, Dave, Andy and I played it, and finding it worked well enough (with me GMing at least), I made it look vaguely pretty and submitted it.

And then went off for a holiday, without properly reading how the judging happens. I came home to find and inbox full of messages chasing my options on the (five?) games I should have judged. It was over. I had missed the deadline. I felt really bad. And put the whole thing out of my mind, until Dave reminded me.

Yeah, thanks Dave.

But there was the PDF, sitting on my hard drive. So I might as well share it, here.

Which RPG deserves more recognition?

Coriolis obviously! We talk about how we feel our favorite game (and its predecessor Mutant: Year Zero) are somewhat overshadowed by Tales from the Loop (which we also love). We wonder if Forbidden Lands will be similarly shadowed, or will it ride to victory upon Tales from the Loop’s coat-tails?
