Our Legendary Lives game continues: we're up to 12 sessions.
You are here
This is where we do what we do! We celebrate our experiences with table-top role-playing games. Here are the ones I'm playing right now:
This is not a play-at or streaming site - it's for discussion of what we're already doing. People often include video or audio recordings, but text-only is fine too. You can also attach documents, like maps or character sheets or brief sections of the rules you're using.
I trust you to work out how you want to talk about your games: just for fun, sharing & comparison, critique, or whatever. If you'd like, check out my best-practices manual for suggestions, but it's really flexible.
If you already do a podcast or other actual-play series, live or not, please consider yourself invited to embed a link as a topic.
For games in design, i.e., playtesting - yes, go right ahead, that's welcome too. For consulting sessions with me, which is different, see the Consulting page.
I'm contemplating a game of Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha. The core book alone is vast, a whole geography of world and system, and I have never played in Glorantha before.
This was at a small convention some years ago (between 3 and 6, I would say), in the middle of nowhere, Finland. The game master and the other players were all strangers to me. There was maybe three or four players. I went in to fill the table, anyways, as I did with Savage worlds in the same con, too.
After writing the Fantasy Heartbreaker essays (2002 & 2003), I knew I'd be playing a lot of them. It was harder to convince people than I expected, so I eventually resorted simply to forcing them upon players. Lately, apparently it's become easier, so that interested parties throw in with me in playing Legendary Lives and Legends of Darkurthe.
I am going to run an adventure using the 1981 D&D Basic Set. There have been a number of conversations that hit on directly, or indirectly, this set of rules and as it was my first RPG experience, I want to take a look back. More than a look, I want to run the game as is, by the rules as much as humanly possible. One of the things I have realized over the these conversations is that my recollection of the rules has been innacurate.
Scott, Robbie, and I have concluded our play of Darkurthe: Legends with session 6. We might get back to these characters and situations, because I think we all agree that there is much to develop, and perhaps a reflection upon hubris to discover, but we'll reconvene and schedule for it at some future date.
Tonight was session 0 of our first ever game of Paul Czege's My Life With Master.
This is how I ran these games: http://adeptplay.com/actual-play/some-osr-sandbox-play (in English)
I am going to tell about two linked one-shots; the first was open table, essentially gaming on demand, at a con and I am describing the last of the sessions, while the second session was an online oneshot.
It's a good thing I reviewed my drives, because I found this game session played in March. I think it was the last time I went to Spelens Hus physically before shifting to screen play.
Here's our first gathering to prepare for Primetime Adventures, a game whose title will invoke more blithering, partisanship, and sprayed terminology than any other I can think of. Which is too bad because the actual game is quite wonderful.
