[ITS SUPER EXPLICIT] The Cult Drunkenly Play Kobolds Ate My Baby (in colour)

Posted in Actual Play, First 100, Podcasts with tags , , on 27 December 2014 by Mawdrigen

Episode 50

We have decided not to play Descent any more as it’s so balanced it annoys us all equally! So instead for the 50th Episode we play Kobolds Ate My Baby! Anal Dave, Beep, and Naked Jon go forth from the caves to try and get food to keep King Torg (ALL HAIL KING TORG) from eating them.

Obviously being Kobolds they are not well suited to this task. Will they survive the attack of Big Black Cocks, Witches, Runaway Carts, Horny Necromancers, and Leg Humping Terriers?

No. No they won’t. But at least it will be funny listening to them try.

Will they steal the Baby? Will I get so drunk I forget how to roleplay? Will Bloodied ever get the mental images out of his head? Can Archive really Wrassle anything? Will Hardwick beat the Demon Cock to death? Find out in this episode!

In case you haven’t realised, this one is marked as Super Explicit. This is because it is SUUUPER EXPLICIT. If you listen to this you should likely wash your ears out with soap afterwards.

Kuro – The Four Otaku of Sto’Vo’Korr – Session 5

Posted in Actual Play, First 100, Podcasts with tags , , , on 13 December 2014 by Mawdrigen

Episode 48

Due to Scary Ghost Tactics I do not suggest listening to this while you drive your car!

In the Finale of the Kuro campaign the Characters now find themselves directly threatened by the angry ghost of Miyuki Sanso, apart from Chiyo who seemingly doesn’t do Pop-Culture references.
With one of the Four Otaku in hand can they keep him safe and alive from the ghost, knowing as they do that if she kills him, then she will be free to start on everyone else who has wronged her.

Currently they are trapped in one of the Otaku’s apartments, safe, so long as the salt barriers hold out.

Surely there’s nothing that could go wrong with that plan.

Kuro – The Four Otaku of Sto-Vo-Korr Session 2

Posted in Actual Play, First 100, Podcasts with tags , on 23 August 2014 by Mawdrigen

Episode 37

We return to the ghost haunted streets of Shin-Edo following Detectives Tanaki and Kurasawa, and their Occultist “friend” Liger Usagi, who is only slightly dodgy. This Episode they are also joined by Chiyo Matsuki who is an overclocker, a computer hacker from the back streets who fiddles with all sorts of technology, but mostly reprograms androids to upgrade their abilities, well Androids and Pop corn machines.

In this episode they continue their investigations into the Death of Yun Odo in Sto-Vo-Korr, while their Sergeant may think that the culprit was obviously a Homicidal Lolita with a silenced shotgun, the team are leaning heavily towards a more supernatural explanation.

However before they can do that they must first examine a cursed computer game, because that is obviously a major plot point and not something the GM threw out on the fly at all…
Players… siiiighhhh

Episode 34

Nyx, Bloodied and I gather to record another “Talky episode” in which we discuss what we have been playing gaming wise. We also review “Himalaya” blend tea from the Covent Garden Tea house, which seems to be perfectly pleasant black tea.
We then go on to discuss game inspiration, and where we get our ideas from. We also talk about up coming campaigns such as Chaosiums Horror on the Orient Express.
We also discuss Atmosphere and Tension in games and how we generate it, also problems with how you build it up. Dread gets mentioned, as being perfectly capable of generating the tension, without it being possible to diffuse it.
Finally we discuss player Dickishness vs in character Dickishness.

Kuro The Four Otaku of Sto-vo-korr Session 1

Posted in Actual Play, First 100, Podcasts with tags , , , on 9 July 2014 by Mawdrigen

Episode 33

In which we follow the two cops Detective Tanaki Soka and Kurosawa Noriko , plus the Occultist Liger Usagi, as they try and work out who murdered one of the Otaku in Sto-vo-korr the Otaku night club in Akibahara.

We begin playing Kuro (Website here a near (far) future game set in a dystopian ghost haunted Japan not dissimilar to the setting of Ghost in the Shell. Japan has been attacked with a nuclear weapon, but although the weapon went off, no one was killed by the blast… The rest of the world believes Japan has a secret nuclear defence, the Japanese government however is panicking as they have no idea what is going on.

And Shin-Edo (renamed Tokyo) is now crawling with ghosts.

Dramatis Persona

Kurasawa Noriko: Tiny Policewoman, with a penchant for Jujitsu and shooting people. Noriko is the shin kicker of the team physically capable and well-armed. She is very connected to her car (called Kimiko), and is suffering from terrible insomnia since the Kuro Incident.

Tanaki Soka: The heavy drinking Police detective, he’s not handling the post incident world terribly well (he’s a semi-heavy drinker), but is continuing to do his job (just about) despite it. Wearing a forensics skin suit he also has a fair amount of natural ability, and some hacking knowledge gained from his time on the street.

Liger Usagi: The Bozoku Occultist, the world has become a weird place, and Usagi is well suited to it. Riding a motorcycle that would not have looked out of place in Akira, he also carries a .38 special with bloodstains from its previous owners death which he claims is “very effective against ghosts”, he knows more than he is letting on.

We cut the chargen out becasue, well in our experience chargen is very dull to listen to, so we jumped straight in to the action. Will the various left overs of a foregone age be able to do anything?

The third session of the Game of Thrones Peril in Kings Landing, which will obviously be Spoilerriffic for that campaign. We continue on to Kings Landing finding out more about the Fox Knight, and what he has been up to. We also finally catch up to House Dannet and have a “conversation” about why they are telling people that we murdered all of their small folk.

Surprisingly the Diplomacy was somewhat left to Garrick. What could possibly go wrong.

I might have used the words “heads on spikes” far too often to actually count as diplomacy.

The Grand Finale of the first Unhallowed Metropolis arc. The gang have followed all of the clues, searched the dark alleys and lost ways of Camden, and finally have come to the end of their investigations. However there is still the issue of actually capturing the perpetrator and bringing them to justice.

Someone who has murdered so many women and one man however? That is not the sort of person who will go quietly. Will all of the gang survive the meeting? Who knows.

Rebellion in the Black City Session 1

Episode 16

I honour of Podcast Saturday ( and Black Friday and so on 🙂 ) I’ve decided to release two today.. Aren’t I nice to you!

NB: Please Note we recorded this AGES ago and we now have more Commenters! We Love you Guys!

Today we begin our semi regular Black City campaign using the rather fine FATE Core system (available here). The Black City is actually my own creation, and the campaign is mostly being used to flesh out the world I’m doing writing in, as such the world might be a little strange.

I will try and write up a little “Gazetteer of the Black City” at some point so that there is a bit more information on the setting available to you all. It’s a strange and somewhat unpleasant place, filled with horrifyingly powerful but broken creatures.

The campaign will follow Denver Soul, an investigator for the shadowy Ascendancy that rules the city, Meneith a disgraced Cog Shaman, Tzark a Spider Waldyr who is very much the muscle of the group, and finally Barnabus, a strange sort of Enslaver who sneaks into peoples houses to eat their dreams (leaving only Nightmares).
One of the Cities High-Order Enslavers has been murdered, which as this would cause a power-vacuum, concerns the Ascendancy greatly and given one of their Skryers has spoken a prophecy regarding it, they dispatch Denver Soul and his compatriots to Deal with it.

Will they manage to solve the murder? Or will the crisis spiral out of control with minions going to war with their masters, and possibly bringing about the fall of the Black City.

This Podcast contains Swearing, Themes of an Adult Nature, Weirdness, Dr Broomstick, Darkness, oh… and Enslavers lots of Enslavers. As such this podcast can be assumed to be Explicit.

Still Spoilerrific for the Peril in Kings Landing campaign, so don’t listen to it if you are intending to play that campaign.

Off on their travels to Kings Landing, the scions of House Grimwood, and fully one fifth of the Scourge of Pyke their elite warriors, are heading down the Kings Road towards the capital in an attempt to sort out the succession crisis. Along the way they visit a number of taverns (much to Garricks delight), and find out that there is a mysterious bandit in the woods nearby, and House Dannet (they of the useless cows) are heading down the road ahead of them.

What will happen? Will any Ale be left in the world after Garrick is done? Will Amyria roll her eyes so hard that they pop clean out of her head?

N.B. This Podcast contains swearing, Garrick Snow, adult themes, horses, swearing, and the words “I give them the wink” far too often, as such it is Explicit.

Bloodied begins running us through Peril at Kings Landing, please be aware that these playthroughs will no doubt be full of spoilers for this campaign, so if you are intending to play it DON’T LISTEN! No… Wait.. Do listen but forget everything abut the plot (we have).

Follow the machinations of House Grimwood as we attempt to sort out our little succession crisis through diplomacy, poisoning, plotting, and pitting Westeros’ toughest man against the cream of the Kingdoms knighthood. In this episode we get to meet the characters, Garrick Snow, the not quite legitimate possible heir, Amyria Grimwood his younger half sister, Allyria Hill the adherent of the Old Gods, and Irvette Sand, Amyria’s handmaiden who certainly doesn’t have any secrets.

In this episode we meet the characters and the mission they have before them.

No tea as we were still getting over the Lapsang Souchon, but we did play an excellent Indie game called Final Girl. Having heard the Fandible guys (Website) playing this game I was inspired to purchase the game and then we gave it a real Cult feeling!

You can get Final girl from here, and I am not spoiling anything by telling you that you absolutely do need this game! There is a small amount of “imagination overhead” but for most roleplayers this is not diffic

In this episode we talk about getting new players into the role playing hobby and we review tea, Whittards lapsang souchon in this case, a tea which last time I drank it made me want to die (this time it didn’t). We were all surprised, but having had Russian Caravan before (freedom and adventure) we were a bit more ready for it. We also introduce Archive the newest member of the Cult (who you have already heard on the Pacific Rim Special Episode). Finally we discuss Kickstarter and how it is making us all poor.

The main subject of getting new players into RPG’s the methods we have used before and how it went from the other side of the table. We discuss my recent Spirit of the Century campaign for non-Gamers.

NB: this podcast includes swearing, adult themes and intense Britishness. Occasionally Archive even remembers that when on a podcast you should occasionally talk!

Lord Leigh and his… friends… continue looking into the Camden prostitute murders. The find the market is a hive on interesting characters, but who could be the murderer? The Creepy Manager of the Philip Cross hotel? The Poor Hospitals Doctor? “Lord” Harley McKinnon the Gravedigger who is profiting so handiliy from the situation? They don’t know but they aim to find out.
With Lottie (Tottie?) busy having conversations with herself seemingly, they resolve to search the area and try and find out who is the cause of these pernicious murders. At the same time, they must keep themselves safe from the predations of Animates.

All the while as they maintain their cover… as “Perverts” sorry “Adventurous Individuals”.

NB: this podcast includes swearing, adult themes (prostitutes and zombies for a start) and intense Britishness. Also contains the fateful line “Pump her for information”. Also witness the awesome power of the word “Thirteen”

Here we are finally! The initial pod cast wherein I and Bloodied review some very nice tea from Whittards, and also a very fine game with very fiddly to put together miniatures from McVey studios in the form of Battle for Alabaster. I might also let slip that I experienced Homicidal tendencies while trying to glue the miniatures together, but fear not I got over it!

You will note that I haven’t put any music in… You will also note the creaky chairs of doom! This was the first recording we did so please excuse us if we sound a little shaky!

Also in this Episode we discuss why we decided to start a blog/pod cast and list some of our Favourites including (in no particular order):

http://minionsofthemonstermaster.blogspot.co.uk/ The Minions of the Monster Master: Actual plays of many, many, many different games. Presented in an irreverent style that occasionally shades to the anarchic.

http://theaethervox.com/ The Aethervox: An Excellent if occasional Malifaux Podcast

http://www.fandible.com/ The Fandible: Purveyors of frankly excellent Actual play pod casts on a vast number of different systems and settings. Their Rogue Trader and Unhallowed Metropolis campaigns in particular are brilliant!

http://www.earwolf.com/show/nerd-poker/ NerdPoker Dungeons and Dragons with Brian Posehn and Friends (and possibly if they pull it off Vin Deisel???) a very old school D&D campaign that has just hit it’s quarter century. Well worth a listen.

http://gamerslounge.coda.net/ The Gamers Lounge, now sadly on Hiatus but an excellent Malifaux podcast.

Please feel free to leave comments of other Pod Casts you think that I might enjoy! I’m willing to give most a go!
