Kids on Bikes and Tales from the Loop, two RPG’s that take you back to youth. RPG’s inspired by Stranger Things and The Goonies, we go over traits of each game to include character generation, overall mechanics and nuances that separate the two from each other.
Board and card games, Brett and Sean talk about their preferences and some of the games they play when not playing RPG’s. While they’re certainly fun to play, they are certainly a different type of game to play when compared to roleplaying games. Both types of games are certainly more competitive, one of things Sean will talk about, but some board games do lend a cooperative approach – Pandemic is a big one, but can still have drawbacks. This episode is not going into a lot of mechanics but more of our preferences and what we play or have played.
Monsters and non monsters in roleplaying games. As Game Masters we throw them at the players, but the big bad is typically a humanoid or human. That is not necessary true. Is it? By saying this we are considering monsters as just fillers. They may be the creatures that do the bidding of some more intelligent human or non monster. I think that is what we’re trying to say in this episode.
We also want to issue a correction to episode 75. Ashen Stars was done by Robin D. Laws and not Kevin Kulp as conveyed in the show.
