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.

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. While Sam gets some key info that will blow away some of the fog, a couple new wrinkles are added however. It seems the android components of the group will be adding more complications and glitches than first thought.

In this episode we pick back up with the decision of killing one of their own still looming. With a lot of elemental “bad juju” going on, there is quite a bit of discord, so conflict ensues, however with little effect… at least to the naked eye. There is still a lot of plot and story brewing beneath the surface, and yet another twist to close out the episode.

Last commentary episode we speculated that a new twist was right around the corner, and oh boy, were we right. In this episode, we spend some time theorizing what this “root virus” is all about. 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.

We take it back the the roots of the Bone Throwers Theater play style with some intense player versus player conflict.

Wanton mayhem, violence, and destruction, that’s what was jam-packed in this episode, and it came from the most unlikely of characters.

The Black House Raid quickly becomes the Black House Escape in this episode. Trapped on two separate floors, the characters battle whatever Jordan can throw at them.

Although the last few episodes have answered a lot of questions, Jordan has stayed true to form and has still left a lot of mystery in the air. We seem to be asking more questions than we started out with, including how long is this Bear character actually going to stick around. Jordan reveals how he makes some of his plot choices, and gives some insight on the makeup of The Council. He actually was quite forthcoming with this info. This could only mean there’s another big twist right around the corner. Stay tuned!
