001 Pilot: Narrative Control in RPGs

001 Pilot: Narrative Control in RPGs

Narrative control is our first ‘main’ topic of discussion. Sean touches on the approach that the Star Wars Edge of the Empire by Fantasy Flight Games takes with narration and how some systems or groups approach narration differently based on the game, or is it how they play? But before that we talk about Warhammer 40k, and why we started this podcast. Our first iteration of Random Encounter is not the same as it is in later episodes. Originally positioned much like what becomes Die Roll.

Random Encounter

Sean talks about metagaming in the first Random Encounter when he game masters 5th Ed Dungeons & Dragons adventure Lost Mine of Phandelver  and how he gets snippy with a player.

Die Roll

Brett – he says he’ll get me this info.
