    BTT EoW 1.29: Commentary 7

    Season 1 is in the books, so in this commentary episode we rehash our favorite moments from the most recent episodes, and touch on how some of the characters are far removed from where they fist started off. We also point out how the nature of the conflict in this campaign differs in one big way from our previous stories, leaving us questioning what side of the war are the characters actually on. Season 2 of Elements of War is sure to have a lot of big reveals.

    BTT One-Shot: Zorro 1

    We take a crack at a brand new game in this one-shot series. Zorro uses an upcoming release of the D6 system we use most often. In this story our characters assist Zorro in his quest for justice for the people of California. But there is a new Capitán in Los Angeles, and it is evident, at least to our heroes, that there is treachery afoot.

    BTT Throwback: Inspectres, “Seattle Spirits” 8

    We put a wrap on our first run of Inpectres with a few possessions, a cauldron, ghost traps, and a couple well-place mirrors. All is made right, or at least not any worse than when they started off. But will the team ever be the same again?

    BTT EoW 1.27: Bagels and Butchers

    Characters drop some hints of some possible "off-screen" nefarious dealings, while Jordan paints a bleak picture of the true state of affairs for the Healing Hands. And yet again at the end another episode we have Sam... and a body. But this time there is an intriguing twist.

    BTT Throwback: Inspectres, “Seattle Spirits” 7

    As if the creepiness wasn't already at an all-time high, Jordan cranks it up to eleven. A few characters have out of body experiences, in more ways than one, and another regains consciousness in a mysterious, dark and dank  basement. The descent into madness continues.

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.”
