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.
We’re using the 2nd edition. In this session, you’ll see us create the series from scratch, i.e., no imposed prior content from me, make the protagonists, and play the pilot. It adds up to a beast of almost 200 minutes, including a short sequence I recorded afterwards and placed between preparation and play.
For reference, here’s a summary of the protagonists’ Screen Presence and issues. In the days following the session, people sent me pictures of their characters and I arrived at a name for the series. I’m restraining myself from providing my notes following play, including which rules I think we need to review a bit and what I have in mind for Episode 1; I’ll share those after that episode gets recorded and posted here.
Please ask questions. I am sadly almost fully certain that no one reading this has seen the game played this way before.
