BTT EoW 3.69: Air Gapped

Although those characters that were sick or injured appear to be on the mend, the decent into dissension continues, as shots are fired both literally and figuratively. One character even is pointing his gun at anyone and everyone this entire episode.

Well, the animal preserve certainly hasn’t been a dull place. What the characters saw as a respite, Jordan and other players had something much deeper in mind. The group appears to be coming apart at the seams, but in this commentary episode we discuss the methods behind the madness, and postulate how it all might be building toward something greater.

With this episode, Elements of War becomes our longest running campaign, and we still have so much more story to go.

If the title is any indication, the characters have no idea of the chaos that is about to ensue. This play session also caught most of the cast completely by surprise as well. Alarms sound in the Animal Preserve, and some characters are on the run from the Androids, while others are on the run from each other. But despite the perceived danger, this episode is still only the calm before the storm. Hang on tight, this is going to be a wild ride.

There was certainly a lot to digest in this first session of season 3, as well as a lot of “firsts” for our characters 2/3 of the way through their journey to the Animal Preserve. We comment on a first for the players in a different mode of storytelling. We really enjoyed the mystery and intrigue that this latest non-linear format brought to the table, and we hope you did as well. There are sure to be more “firsts” for both players and characters in the rest of the season.

They must now address how they will survive the frozen tundra outside the dome. Bundle up, it looks like season 3 of Elements of War will be quite chilling.

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.

BTT EoW 1.19: Commentary 4

We rehash our favorite moments, and highlight the key parts that will most-likely have an impact on the main story moving forward. The players applaud each other for their interesting roleplaying choices, and Jordan talks about how this method of fleshing out the world and the story was an ambitious endeavor.
