Over at the Patreon, I've been musing about and sharing iterations of my personal hack-and-whack job on Legendary Lives. It took a big jump after the discussion here at Monday Lab: Probable cause, and turned a corner at the dubious moment that I decided all the Imperial characters would have mustaches, yes, all of them.
You are here
For a while now, I've joined in a Tunnels and Trolls game run by Jon Hastings, mostly with members of his longstanding friend group. One of them, George, wanted to have a conversation with Jon about how to follow up on what interested him in his RPG experiences. I nosily asked if they would be willing to have me join in and record it, and they said "sure".
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.
Pretty much what the title says! General or specific, important or unimportant, obvious or not so much ... doesn't matter.
Part of hobby mythology concerns role-playing's origins as bringing tighter focus into table-top wargaming, such that within this or that battalion, or aboard this or that vehicle, the group can look closer and see Sergeant Bob or whoever running around, being a character, having opinions, and doing things.
At Jon’s prompting, a group of us are preparing to take on Forge: Out of Chaos. This will be my third experience with a Fantasy Heartbreaker—Legendary Lives and Darkurthe Legends are the others that I’ve played, and you can find some materials on those games elsewhere on Adept Play.
Our Legendary Lives game continues: we're up to 12 sessions.
Similar to my consult with Jared, I wonder whether Jerry and I are even comprehensible to a third-party listener. I know it'll be entertaining; we've known each other for almost twenty years, trading thoughts about life et cetera. I kept laughing out loud while editing. However, he's published big, beautiful games (Atlantis, Hellas), managing money and production in ways I can't imagine or do.
We just started a Legendary Lives game. I'm GMing for Nick and George (we all just finished a fairly long-running Sorcerer game), and we have also been joined by our friend Mark (who played Trollbabe and The Shadow of Yesterday with me and Nick many several years ago, but hasn't played with us recently).
