BTT EoW 4.91: Code-Split

A Kaiju in the city, a cryptic radio message, and a decision to split the party; those are the ingredients for what we hope is a recipe for success. And Jeremy even attempts an interesting negotiation strategy with Jordan to steer the narrative in that direction. But who are we kidding. We know full-well how these things turn out.

BTT One-Shot: Capers, Ep. 5

When we play a new game, we always love to give some of our thoughts on it, so here is a commentary episode. Aaron shares where he drew his inspiration from for the story. We discuss some of the game mechanics, as well as the differing feel of our one-shots, and look ahead to some of the games we have slated for “future” one-shots on Bone Throwers Theater.

BTT EoW 4.90: Commentary 21

In this commentary episode we fully wrap our minds around how much the city of Consiglio has fully spiraled into chaos… and Jordan’s literal interpretation of the player’s words is just the cherry on top. We talk about near-death experiences for characters and tying in some loose threads from the previous seasons.

The story concludes with a shootout in a swanky hotel penthouse. As the damage is dealt from both sides, will the y make it out with Santa’s bag of goods? One character thinks the task is easy and tries to keep his cool… however, the calm and collected intentions are merely that… intentions.

BTT EoW 4.89: Go With The Flow

“No more carrying bodies.” So the group waits for Jerr to regain consciousness. Before waking up Jerr has a vision and seems to make a big connection with his elemental, opening the floodgates to new found strength. We’re sure this will come back to bite the characters in the batt later in the season though.

Sneaking across the war torn city in the middle of the night, what could go wrong? Well, despite some pretty epic dice rolls, everything. And we see one player character on the brink of death. When all is said and done, we blamed the trash panda.

Rival mobster families, and late night warehouse showdowns make for a classic 1920’s gangster story. In this episode the players throw Aaron some curveballs, both with the ruleset and also in the story, by getting a bit ahead of themselves. It looks like disaster awaits for at least one character. We’ll see.

It’s time for the first ever, Bone Throwers Theater Christmas Special. Aaron takes the reins and drives the sleigh through the cold winter night for a new game for the podcast, Capers. In this episode, we polish off character creation, set the scene in the 1920s for this Christmas story, and get our first look at the rule set involving a deck of cards rather than dice. Hang on tight, as we start this fun story we have nicknamed “How The Mob Saved Christmas”.

This game has been listed as an inspiration for the show since the beginning, and we finally got around to playing it, so we had a lot of fun talking about it in this commentary episode. Although Jordan reveals the amount of homework he did for this story, as usual, the player’s choices didn’t always line up to bring out those details. But it was quite interesting hearing the depth of the story shared after the fact.

Navigating through war zones in the city is hard enough, but having their faces plastered on posters as the faces of the uprising, puts a whole new level of danger on the situation. Looking for answers… and weapons, the characters have little choice but to trust each other. And of course, Jordan drops another bomb right at the end of the episode.
