Cult 72 – A Talky Episode – Kickstarter Roundup

Posted in First 100, Kickstarter, Podcasts with tags on 4 July 2015 by Mawdrigen

We go through Kickstarter project we have backed and loved, and a few that have frustrated us beyond belief (I’m looking at you Chaosium). We round up all of the video game and roleplaying projects we have backed. Also discussed is the habit of programming companies kickstarting the IP free versions of their own previous games (Torment and Numenera for example).

Shadows of Esteren
OVA
Revelations of Mars
Plotbuilder cards
Conflict Cards

PS Route 666 did lure me in the end… mostly due to watching Mad Max.

We then move on to Music and Characters, specifically working out each characters theme song and how this enhances the games.

Finally we go through Games for Non-Gamers, and how to introduce non-gamers to a wondrous hobby.

Special Episode – Planet Mercenary

Posted in Actual Play, Kickstarter, Podcasts with tags , , , on 14 May 2015 by Mawdrigen

In this special Episode we are playing the Beta Rules of Planet Mercenary, the new RPG based on the Schlock Mercenary Universe by Howard Tayler. This game is being Kickstarted Right now and can be found HERE!

I’ve been reading Schlock for a very long time and the chance to play in the universe was too good to pass up!

So follow the adventures of the Soulianis mercenary company, on their ship Rahm, with their AI… Derek, as they are hired by a xenphobic and possibly psychotic koala bear to save skunk people from government mind control.

Yes you did read that right!

Ps go check out the fandible.com play throughs for more schlocky goodness!

This Podcast is mostly clean, but does include moderate cursing. It also contains many Mighty Boosh quotes (it is an outrage), tea, and for some reason a race of Pepe le Peu style sentient skunks.

KICKSTARTER Special Episode 4 – The Cult Play Fragged Empire

The Cult get their hands on the Fragged Empire Alpha rules and take them for a spin, a spin in which a combat team is sent into Whisperecho base to retrieve some data from a group of long dead Corporate scientists, who were trying to build a weapon to help their masters the Archons win the Xion War.

The war was lost, but the base went silent long before the end. What happened there, and will the Player Character survive it?
