    Episode 055 – An RPG About Nothing

    What’s the deal with Actual Play RPG Podcasts? Matt, Andrew, Chris, and Gino play a homebrewed RPG that vaguely resembles a famous sitcom, although things do get somewhat more scatological.















    This is a game by Andrew, who likes to make games. You can get this game, An RPG About Nothing, on his itch.io page.







    (While you are there, check out some of his other games.)

Fun play/bad audio engineering

These guys feel the need to talk quietly 90% of the time before suddenly swallowing the mic and yelling into it without any good use of compression or limiters.

Role play is pretty fun. They're having a fun time. Also, what the hell's with the random reverb on a sentence or two and then nothing?
