BTT One-Shot: Cthulhu Dark, Ep. 2

CDThe story begins as the characters’ common associate gathers them together to investigate a mysterious delivery. Jordan confesses that the mystery is based on a actual real life event. Of course, there is more horror to come than what was in the actual news report.

BTT One-Shot: Cthulhu Dark, Ep. 1

CDJordan picks up a new one-shot via a Kickstarter for us to play, Cthulhu Dark. This fits our gravitation toward our usual dark and spooky stories. We’ll create our characters, come up with some interesting backstories, and by the end of the episode Jordan says “The victims will should be ready.”

BTT EoW 2.50: Panic In The Air

EOW S2The group squares off with another council member. This time a couple of our characters are in grave danger. This crazy scene is all topsy-turvy, for even our dice rolls, as a character with the best of intentions misses with an epic roll, but the unassuming character with ulterior motives seems to save the day (for now) with a less than stellar roll. But we see through a couple of flashback scenes, that it’s that hidden agenda that shows of a greater conflict to come.

LFHere’s a quick commentary on our play session of Lasers & Feelings. We talk about the mechanics of the games system and what tweaks we would explore to give more room to all aspects of the game. We also make comparisons to other one-shots we have run, such as Fiasco, Inspectres, and Star Wars. All said and done, we enjoyed it, and hope you did as well.

BTT EoW 2.48: Commentary 12

In this commentary episode, we discuss some of the looming implications of the on the spot roleplaying choices we have made. Not only do those decisions affect the story, but also how we play the game. We also spend some time describing how our style of play may differ from most roleplaying encounters. It’s “collaborative storytelling” where everyone is in the driver’s seat and the GM is just “the director in this sham play”… and we love it.

EOW S2Here is another commentary episode where we take a look at some of the methods we use for this form of collaborative storytelling, and come to the realization that both GM and players come to the table with “plans” that often get altered before they come to fruition. But still each character (and even a couple NPCs) have their distinct arc that is woven into the overall story… and we always seem to be on the edge of our seats so far. We hope you are enjoying it as much as we are.

There’s action right from the onset of this episode, and the group flees from one “safe-house” to another.

We also discuss the reason why such an inter-personal conflict episode was inevitable at this point in the story. A lot may have been vented by the characters, but they still remain on the brink of a dark decision… killing one (at least one) of their own.
