Live Laugh Lightsaber

I am reviewing this right at the end of Star Wars, going into Skyjacks. I have never laughed so much at a podcast. Or anything for that matter, and I love this show so much. Thats why it gets a 5. There are some things that get a bit… repetitive, like Characters arguing with each other about the same things that just feel so repetitive after a while, but overall my favorite moments are when the 3 main players/ characters get sidetracked and are just joking around and riffing off each other. I get it can be annoying as a DM, but when you have 3 hilarious people in one room, its going to happen.

Transformative

I’ve listened to this since Kat Kuhl was running Star Wars. It’s always been for me a show where the players are giving dedicated light comedy actual play under the a GM giving straight fire immersive improve storytelling.

Skyjacks for me, has been a story of, after some sad goodbyes to talented voice actors, a fascinating transition playing out over its duration. From dedicated light comedy improve actual play, into deep immersive world building keeping the same tone of comedy by talented improve voice actors.

This laid out over the challenges that life has thrown their way has made me interested in finding a game group of my own. It helped guide me to being a better and more inclusive player at the table. It showed me it’s possible and ok to advocate for my own time and communication in gaming as an adult with a family.

I’m loving the creative and original game mechanics seeing the transition from Star Wars to their own world. The transition from dedicated, long form, light improve comedy to a more dedicated tone of inclusiveness and world building. I applaud their efforts and performance and would highly recommend to anyone looking for an actual play that is funny, explicit, and also importantly, not crude.
