    Bonus: Q&A with Laurie O'Connel and Death Game!

    Show Notes
    To tide us over til our next one-shot, here's a bonus episode where our host and GM Fiona interviews game designer Laurie O'Connel, the creator behind Lichcraft, Hieronymus, and the upcoming Death Game!
    Laurie’s TTRPG work covers a wide, wide range subjects, from the ‘weird’ to the ‘unsettling’. His latest project, Death Game is a narrative-driven tabletop roleplaying game when characters compete in a high-stakes battle for survival. 
    Inspired by the battle royale genre, whose touchstones include media like Hunger Games, Squid Game, and Alice in Borderlands, players will pick up characters struggling against all odds for victory. As the number of competitors narrows and the stakes grow higher, you'll play until one of you wins, and the rest of you die. 
    You can get more updates about Death Game and Laurie's other games by signing up to his newsletter and on his website, Twelve Pin Press.

    Episode #127: Solemn Vale Pt. 2 (Actual Play UK Livestream)

    Episode #127: Solemn Vale Pt. 2 (Actual Play UK Livestream)

    Content Warnings/Trigger Warnings: Folkhorror themes, violence, disappearances, child endangerment, supernatural horror, 1970s attitudes.
    Show Notes
    This week, Fiona is joined by Pip, James, Adam and Rhys for ‘Solemn Vale’, a narrative-driven storytelling game where players tell abhorrent tales of horror and the supernatural.
    Published by Dirty Vortex, ‘Solemn Vale’ is set against the backdrop of 1970s England, exploring a repugnant world of Folk Horror and the paranormal. Each game is a communal storytelling experience, with the players taking on the roles of visitors to this village ensnared in a tale of mystery and survival.
    Guided by the Narrator, each story will deliver a small glimpse into the grim underbelly of the vale and the festering malevolence feeding it. Success is by no means certain, as the Wyrd corrupts and destroys all those who confront it
    You can find out more information about ‘Solemn Vale’ on the Dirty Vortex's website.
    This one-shot’s audio was taken from the Actual Play UK's livestream. Actual Play UK is a streaming channel for UK-based TTRPG podcasts to create collaborations.

    Episode #125: Going Rogue 2e with Jess Levine Pt. 3!

    Episode #125: Going Rogue 2e with Jess Levine Pt. 3!

    Show Notes
    This week, Fiona is joined by Duste and Catrina and extra special guest GM Jess Levine for 'Going Rogue 2e', a GM-Less Anti-Fascist RPG about war, rebellion, and making the ultimate sacrifice.
    Some dedicate their life to the cause… One day, you will dedicate everything. Those who dream of a better world know one simple, terrible fact: not everyone who helps build it will be blessed with the opportunity to live in it. Those who put their lives on the line to transmute dreams of rebellion into reality know the grim truth that to see this transformation occur, they may one day have to give their lives as a catalyst.
    'Going Rogue 2e' is a GM-less tabletop roleplaying game for 2-5 players that tells the story of that sacrifice. Written by Jess Levine, 'Going Rogue 2e' is an expansion for Riley Rethal’s 'Galactic 2e'. 'Going Rogue 2e' uses 'Galactic 2e's mechanical foundation to weave narratives about troubled martyrs mired in messy, ethically gray conflicts who must face the possibility of making the ultimate sacrifice.
    You can find out more information about 'Going Rogue 2e' and grab your own copy on Jess’ itch.io page.
