What A Wild Ride

I’ve kept up with Nocturne, almost religiously, over the past year. As a long-time fan of tablestory, I had caught Pumpkinberry’s mini-series Stygian Gate and it was unlike any tabletop series I’d watched to that point. Fast forward a bit and then comes Nocturne.

It’s safe to say, I was excited. From episode one of this show I was hooked. I’d seen a few of the cast members before, such as KatiePetersPlays and DomesticDan, but majority were new to me at the time and I didn’t quite know what to expect. However, I was not disappointed in the slightest. The two I previously mentioned are joined by ClassyPax, Ezekiel_III, and ClassyKatie, as well as Amelia Tyler (an amazing person who voices some of my FAVORITE video game characters). Each member of the cast brought such an intensity to the dynamic of the group, and I’ve honestly never seen a group of people dive so deep into the darkest pits of the human mind on a tabletop show before. The group were shamelessly vulnerable in what makes their characters tick, which led to nothing but AMAZING role play throughout the entire series.

Without getting into too much detail, because spoilers, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll scream in horror, frustration, anger, joy, and just about every other emotion you could possibly scream in.

I want to give a special shoutout to the amazing GM, Pumpkinberry, and how great of a job she did in running this game. She’s such a mastermind at interconnecting plot points and making callbacks to things you never would have expected. She masterfully spun a web that we were all trapped in, just trying to claw our way out with some sort of sanity.

Thank you, PB, for all your hard work and devotion to what has to be one of my favorite tabletop shows thus far, and thank you to the cast for creating characters that I could emotionally invest in. Although I’m sad the series has come to an end, I’m grateful for the hours of entertainment I’ve gotten from it. I’ve never been more happy to be stuck in the darkness, waiting for my eyes to adjust in time.

Amazing

I found this through another Tablestory show and I’ve been obsessively binge listening since. There were a few episodes where I was brought to tears or got goosebumps. If you like listening to DnD games (or just improv), I’d recommend giving Nocturne a shot.

Must experience

Nocturne is an intense, no-holds-barred ride. It's intricately crafted, yet highly improvizational (in a uniquely wonderful way). It's a fluid, dark supernatural/horror story with a huge focus on its characters. Their backgrounds, their interactions. Everyone involved in this is massively committed, and you will be floored by the story surprises and the role play. I have to mention, it is not for the squeamish or kids. But truly, Nocturne is an experience that will make you forget these are people playing a game. It's sometimes shocking, and always engrossing. If you're interested in this genre of TV/movies, you will become addicted.
