I'm on posting duty for our first official, post-pilot episode of Star Trek Adventures, "Questions of Duty," as Anthony is battling complications (a bit like our characters were).
Here's a blessed event insofar as I can finally talk about role-playing content and procedures that are ordinarily kicked down the road. For me, Adept Play is a rousing success insofar as ideas can be introduced and resolved enough so that "next ideas" can actually be addressed, and I don't have to spray down the entry point with fire-extinguisher foam or, for that matter, disinfectant.
Reporting on this installment has been delayed because although the pilot episode did reach its conclusion with part D, videos and other posts are still being prepared in regard to it. However, as play continued with the first part of the new episode last night, the time has come to post this report.
On Wednesday, December 16th, two of the three of us met online for the third session of the Pilot Episode of the campaign.
The video of the second session is now available as are reflections videos from me and from Ron.
I have been communicating with Sean_RDP / Logan40k about Star Trek Adventures and our experiences with it. Part of that conversation was to agree to post some thoughts about our respective campaigns in a digestible format, so as a starter we have this brief Q&A to broach the topic.
What did you do with the game?
Although for the first time in a long while I have a stack of games that I want to get to the table, circumstances have aligned to allow for and encourage a return to Star Trek Adventures as an online game. I ran the game for local friends around a real table in a real room in 2017-18 for about a year. That campaign will be resuming locally in a few months - if Covid-19 precautions allow.
Science fiction is a vast squishy thing spread throughout all sorts of media and culture/subculture. Got it. I wanted to examine its content in two pretty-specialized media: mainstream television series and table-top role-playing. You’ll see three dialogues: first with Ángel, then Ivan, and finally Moreno. I’m first to admit, the result is a mess: not much more than dialogue, spitballing, trying to stay on track, with a couple of difficult variables in play.
