    In this next installment of the group therapy session, we take a look at a couple more characters and explore their somewhat positive memories. This time around we see how the patients do not always remember the events clearly, but what might seem like absurdity in the details, might actually be how things panned out.

    Although those characters that were sick or injured appear to be on the mend, the decent into dissension continues, as shots are fired both literally and figuratively. One character even is pointing his gun at anyone and everyone this entire episode.

    Well, the animal preserve certainly hasn't been a dull place. What the characters saw as a respite, Jordan and other players had something much deeper in mind. The group appears to be coming apart at the seams, but in this commentary episode we discuss the methods behind the madness, and postulate how it all might be building toward something greater.

    BTT Episode 300: Show Commentary

    Three main campaigns and about 2 dozen one-shots adds up to a lot of episodes, and some great stories. In this bonus commentary episode, we talk about a lot of our favorite characters, scenes and other memorable moments we've had on the show. We talk about some of the behind the scene things when it comes to collaborative storytelling, and even a bit of production. We also share a few outtakes and highlight several outstanding contributions from past cast members; Carlin, Stephanie, and Mike. It's definitely been a fun ride, and there is still much more to come.

Great real play podcast

Great story telling and creative RPGs that don’t use the trendiest systems. A breath of fresh air!

A fun listen

I’ve been listening over the episodes of this show, and I think it’s great. These guys obviously spend a lot of time thinking about character and how the story can come from their interaction. You can really see how story games like Fiasco influences their play style in that way. Really fun to hear those sessions from their convention experiences!

“Terra Proximus” is a blast. In addition to the ongoing story line, the flashback episodes add some depth to the characters’ backstories.

I’m glad to see the show return with new episodes. I can’t wait to hear what happens on “Angel’s Guard.”
