Actual Play

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 mailed Ron about an AP post I made on my blog, about a great Trollbabe session I played, and he suggested linking to it here. So, in case you are interested, here's the link. I describe some pivotal moments in the game, but I especially try to analyse what makes Trollbabe work as a character-driven roleplaying game.

I am a runquester, not a Gloranthaphile, but have been digging into the mythology as I have been developing my game.

For an initial post I am just linking my YouTube channel playlist for my Chronicles of Car'reen campaign which I started back in December 2018.

Living Alchemy

I've been working on a roleplaying game for half my life. I started it in the summer before college, sitting in the empty campus of UNL. I was about to leave for a another state, bitter about my life, bitter about leaving it. But this isn't about that. I recently finished an eight session campaign using the system I built. I thought I'd tell you about it.

This really could have gone into Seminar instead. I edited it as an epilogue to our Lamentations/Ottoman playtest and included it in that YouTube playlist, and it does fit and make most sense that way, but as an idea, it's probably going to generate Seminar-style discussion.
