Mysteries of the Yokai Potluck Blog
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Another day, another disaster averted by the brave operatives of the Bureau of Supernatural Affairs. Now that we have finished our adventure through the strange streets of Enbashi, it’s time to discuss the game that brought us there. Is</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Mysteries of the Yokai</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">the right game for you and your tabletop group? Join us once more, as we delve into this unique game, courtesy of Warding Circle.</span></p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Yokai</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">is a game that blazes its own trail when it comes to gaming mechanics, using its own original system rather than cribbing off of another established set of rules. This makes it exciting and fresh, but can also lead to frustration for people more used to the classic games.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Take character creation for example.</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Yokai</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">foregoes having a set list of classes and races to choose from, instead opting for a point-buy system that is used to pick every aspect of your character’s abilities. The players all appreciated the flexibility this offers, but also found themselves suffering from tyranny of choice. There are so many options to pick from that it can feel overwhelming before you get started.</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Yokai</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">does offer</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">katas</span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">, themed packages that can help guide you, but certain aspects, especially signature attacks, were a bit confusing at first glance. Noa mentioned that NPCs used the same point-buy system, which makes for unique threats and allies, but also require a substantial amount of time to implement.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We found the general mechanics to be intriguing and flexible. We enjoyed that skills could be used with different abilities depending on the character’s personality and background. For example, a weightlifter could add Strength to their Athletics skill, while a long-distance runner might use Endurance instead. Flavorfully, this makes a lot of sense, and is an approach that more games should consider in the future.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Conflicts in</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Yokai</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">are very different from what any of us were used to. The Conflict Tracker (</span><a href= "https://www.mysteriesoftheyokai.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Conflict_Tracker.pdf"><span style="font-weight: 400;">which can be seen here</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">) is an elegant piece of game design, and the fact that combat is ended by forcing the other side to become unwilling to fight rather than outright killing them all is refreshing. However, we underestimated how key signature attacks were to running an engaging battle. If a character doesn’t have a relevant signature move to the situation, then there it can get repetitive. It falls to the GM to make sure that the fights stay fun and inclusive of the PCs, and there can be a learning curve for those used to traditional turn-based fights.</span></p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Yokai</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">truly excels when it comes to the world it creates. It’s clear the designers put a great deal of research and love into the setting, combining the action and courtly intrigue of historical Japan seamlessly with the mystery and wonder of Japanese mythology. Charlotte pointed out that a good RPG setting gives the GM with intriguing hooks and plot threads, and</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Yokai</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">provides those in abundance. Even if you aren’t familiar with the history or mythology that inspired the game, most players should be able to jump right in. If you grew up watching the films of Studio Ghibli, then</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Yokai</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">is certain to capture your imagination.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Overall, we enjoyed our time playing</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Mysteries of the Yokai</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">, and would love to play it again one day. The game offers a lot of complexity without devolving into too much crunch. It might be difficult for new players to jump into without the help of an experienced GM, but there’s an amazing world to discover for those who will try it!</span></p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Mysteries of the Yokai</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">can be found at</span> <a href= "https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/229544/Mysteries-of-the-Yokai?affiliate_id=781175"> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/229544/Mysteries-of-the-Yokai?affiliate_id=781175</span></a>.</p>

Tails of Equestria Potluck Blog
<p>Hey all! Have you ever wondered what friendship could be? Well, come and take this adventure with Tabletop Potluck as we explore the My Little Pony game <em>Tails of Equestria</em>!</p> <p>Both Megan and Sally thought the book guided you through character creation with ease and everything was laid out very simply but didn’t lack complexity so all the character created could feel different</p> <p>Megan felt the system was inviting despite her lack of knowledge of <em>My Little Pony</em>. She had to read up on the Elements of Harmony, but the book provides definitions so that wasn’t too much of a problem. Marquez felt that the character creation was about halfway between a playbook system and a crunchier game, making it a good entry level game as it was designed for both children and adults.</p> <p>Both quirks and talents were easy to understand. Talents are basic powers and are akin to <em>Dungeons and Dragons</em> feats which are great but don’t really stand out. Sally loved talents and love the variety of powers these ponies can have, as well as making sure they all were different from one another.</p> <p>Quirks, on the other hand, stood out especially as interesting role-playing prompts that despite being things that would hold your character back, provided no negative mechanical aspect to your character sheet and by confronting your quirk through role playing opportunities has a positive mechanical spin, which really fits in well with such a positive game system. Your quirks set you apart but they are what make you <strong>you</strong>! The fantastic character you are!</p> <p>Friendship tokens are GREAT! The crew all agreed that the friendship token mechanic felt really well developed. The fact that you start off with friendship tokens equal to the people at the table INCLUDING the GM is really nice as it emphasizes that the GM wants you to succeed and is also your friend. The idea that you use the friendship tokens to re-roll and change the narrative really emphasizes the subtitle of the show that friendship IS magic and by using these tokens you can just succeed! But be careful not to hoard your friendship tokens like a dragon, friendship is meant to be shared! And if you spend them, they are easy to get back as the game rewards you with them for being a good friend.</p> <p>The test, challenges, and scuffle aspects of the game (the main reason you roll dice) seemed fair. You just roll one die to determine success and when the challenges you face are at your level all the dice rolls are fair. This also allows the GM to showcase when a threat seems insurmountable, like when Marquez pulled a d12-- the atmosphere changed at the table, but with enough friendship tokens, anything is possible.</p> <p>Leveling is really easy, just finish an adventure! Though we didn’t level up here, we noted that it is so nice knowing that instead of a complicated experience system and easier to explain while teaching kids to play the game.</p> <p>We would all play <em>Tails of Equestria</em>, though Megan would want to watch <em>My Little Pony: Friendship is Magi</em>c before playing again but mostly so she’d be as excited as Sally was during the game! We recommend <em>Tails of Equestria </em>definitely for parents who want to teach their kids, or even as a first time RPG for all ages provided you want to have fun! If you don’t take yourself too seriously take some time and play this game! It’s a breath of fresh air!</p> <p><em>Tails of Equestria </em>can be found at: <a href= "https://riverhorse.eu/our-games/my-little-pony-tails-of-equestria/">https://riverhorse.eu/our-games/my-little-pony-tails-of-equestria/</a></p>

Tome of Spirits Review
<p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">“[The] tome in your hands holds many of the secrets of the beings known as spirits. Drawn from a wide collection of resources, it can be a powerful tool in the right hands. Or it can be a source of entertainment. How it is used is up to you”</span></em></p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">-Tome of Spirits, Page 1</span></em></p> <p>The TTPL crew were lucky enough to get a working copy of <em>Tome of Spirits</em>, the new source book for <em>Endless Realms,</em> from our friends at Lunar Games!  They're in the last stretch of their kickstarter, which you can check out here: <a href= "https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lunargames/endless-realms-tome-of-spirits">https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lunargames/endless-realms-tome-of-spirits</a></p> <p>Here are some of our thoughts!</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">For GMs and players alike,</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Tome of Spirits</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">is a beautiful piece of worldbuilding for</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Endless Realms</span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">. Belief and mythology is important to any culture, and this book gives you the tools to incorporate those mythologies into your game.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">When we last played the game, we had a lot of questions about the exact power and place of spirits in the world of Lumis, but</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">ToS</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">addresses this in the first two pages! Spirits are described in multiple evolving ways, which gives GMs a chance to use the description that suits their story best. Multiple ranks of spirits, types of energy, traditions, and spiritual aspects are covered.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">All of these aspects are bound to inspire countless plot hooks for possible adventures. Variety is the spice of life.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In fact, there’s an entire section on incorporating spirits into adventures-- for instance, multiple roles that spirits can play as NPCs, or how spirits belong in multiple realms. The examples given here are brilliant and diverse.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Our game of Endless Realms also discussed corrupted spirits, which ARE IN THIS. YO. There’s an entire section on corruption, what it does, and how to combat it! We are very excited about this.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The book isn’t only worldbuilding; it also adds mechanics to the system by giving readers new Class Paths and Skills.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We were all really charmed by the class paths. The Divine Advocate path sticks out to us especially;  might not expect a law magic class to be focused on the unruly natural world, but the build finds a wonderful synthesis where you could play what is akin to a natural rights lawyer or an activist, which is A+ to nerds like us. Another great one is the Evangelist path for the Dandy. It slots right into what the Dandy is trying to be, and ties into the natural charisma of the class.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The book gives you some spiritually imbued items to incorporate into your game, as well as some more mundane items. The items have a wide range of rarity and power, including cursed items (a fun addition to any game). Want your players to be stuck reading the “Boring Tome” or give them a nice magical fluffy pillow?</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">ToS</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">has you covered.</span></p> <p><br /> <span style="font-weight: 400;">There is a huge amount of content in this book.  It might be daunting at first, especially if you’re new to Endless Realms (our eyes may have boggled at the initial sight of it). However, if you already know and love</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Endless Realms</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">like us, that shouldn’t be a problem. We would definitely recommend this book as an addition to any</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Endless Realms</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">game.</span></p>

A Town Called Malice Potluck Blog
<p>The clouds have passed over Malice. As the rain washes away our fears, we will in turn pour our feelings on this system over your willing eyes and ears. If you don’t have time to listen to the potluck episode, here’s a handy blog post to reference as you decide whether or not you want to click that Buy-It-Now button! So now let’s dig in to A Town Called Malice (ATCM) by David Kizzia and Monkeyfun Studios.</p> <p>Remember to take our review with a grain of salt since the game is likely to change by the time it is officially released!</p> <p>Our first discussion topic was the Nordic Horror setting and its effectiveness in this system.  Even our players who were not well-versed in Nordic Horror still really enjoyed the setting and the eerie feel made possible in such a small town. We made sure to touch on the fact that although we made the Darkness something supernatural, the game does not specify that; your Darkness can be as terrifyingly real as you wish! The rules and creation guides leave many options to the players while guiding them along an easily spoopy situation.</p> <p>The game appears to be very open to possibilities. With that in mind, David Kizzia mentions the possibility of a PvP playstyle. The Beta rules do not go into detail on this, but the entire team is very interested in learning more about that choice! We’re personally hoping for some Betrayal at House on the Hill surprise twisty goodness!</p> <p>Continuing on, the playbooks fit perfectly in the setting (if you want a sneak peak at every playbook, check out our Session 0 at patreon.com/tabletoppotluck). The archetypal structure of the characters lets you take a very specific role and implement it however you’d like to fit your desired story. It’s very easy to make a community through the playbooks, and they’re all made to build a seamless sense of community. You start the game by creating your characters which includes creating a location in town and an NPC that fits with it. This includes everyone in the world building and makes it more of a group activity instead of just running a cut and dry setting guide. We love the inclusion of the players in worldbuilding in any game and were so excited to see it explicitly asked for here.</p> <p>On the subject of structure, we addressed a unique feature of ATCM. Instead of a singular GM running the game, the system requires a narrator. This can either be one player (who also has a character in the game) or the role can be shared by all players, each taking turn with the role as the spotlight shifts between them. As lovers of secrets and unknown horrors, a lot of us questioned how effectively a scary story can be told if 1. Everyone knows the secrets or 2. No one knows the secrets and it’s all improv. As a sole narrator, Megan found it a bit difficult to balance knowing the hidden information and trying not to meta-game as her PC. That being said, we all agreed that we wouldn’t want to give up the feature of all players taking turns being NPCs. This fits better with a rotating narrator, or at least a narrator who doesn’t take the sole role of GM, and really solidifies this as a game of community.  You build the town, you continue to help it grow as you create new locations, and you lend your voice to the community. It’s very rounded out between every player and no .</p> <p>As much as we believe comparing this game to Fiasco is like comparing apples to oranges, we want to touch on the topic because they’re both technically GM-less games. If you want a bit more structure to your improv TTRPG, ATCM has a lot of it. Fiasco is, as the name suggests, more of a chaotic, comedic whirlwind. It’s the different of wanting a fun, Cohen brothers film or a darker Fargo. If you’re a fan of a bit more structure and darker narratives, you’ll love A Town Called Malice.</p> <p>Some players might struggle with the fact that the existence of full success/mixed success/ full failure endings leads some people to stray a little bit away from natural roleplay due to the innate desire to <em>win.</em> If you want a full success, you most likely will end up meta-gaming at least a little bit as you head towards the final act and confrontation with the darkness. And that’s fair! But if you want that out of your games, you might take up issue with ATCM. At the same time, this leads to very cooperative play which can be a joy if you’ve had problems with adventuring parties that are constantly questioning why they travel together.</p> <p>On the subject of Scenes: There are 5 different possible scenes you can choose to run on your turn. These either resolve something personal for your character or address a story pillar of the game. As we’ve seen throughout ATCM, that’s a lot of options to keep you from feeling trapped in only one choice. You can help your friends, fight alone, or just go out and do whatever puts your character ahead. And that’s a good concept. We could see some of the scenes growing more from where they currently are, but other than that it’s a pretty good start! Each brings something different in the evolution of the acts, but their effects are still pretty easy to follow. The change between the acts itself can be very subtle and that can let the importance of the ending sneak up on you. It’s important to remember that this game will eventually end and there can be dire consequences for your choices even from the first act. That being said, you need to stay on your toes if you want to win because one dice roll can change the entire game.</p> <p>As was just mentioned, this game has an ending. This isn’t really built to be played over years and years (though there are notes in the book for continuing the story). If you feel like you don’t have the time to commit to an RPG campaign, ATCM can be a perfect option for telling deep, dark stories on a busy schedule. The team had a bit of a disagreement on if this game can be picked up and played on a moment’s notice, even though it’s very low commitment (aside from emotional). Marquez thinks it depends on the people you run it with. Ray thinks it still requires setup to be run well. Like the Betrayal at House on the Hill boardgame, it requires a bit of setup and a certain level of investment, so it really is up to you if that’s the type of game you’d go for at a party! If that sounds like a party for you, invite Megan.</p> <p>This is a game for “spooky binches,” those who like mysteries and thrillers, psychological film nerds (Jacobs Ladder), and serious improv troupes (which should totally exist). If you want to play normal people confronting things far above their understanding and normal wheelhouse, then this is a game for you.</p> <p>So would we play it again?</p> <p>-Sally wants to experience mixed success endings and failures.</p> <p>-Marquez wants to play the other playbooks.</p> <p>-Ray would possibly play it but isn’t chomping at the bit. She wants to see a PvP playthrough though.</p> <p>-Megan can’t wait to see what changes will be made when the Kickstarter has done.</p> <p> </p> <p>Some tips for playing:</p> <p>-If you want more instances of the darkness having a chance to come in to play, play with more than 4 players! And work on confronting the darkness as much as you can!</p> <p>-Like any game, play with it. If you want to modify the rules for a certain mechanic to fit your group better, feel free! There are so many options in this game, it feels like optimization really fits the spirit of the system.</p> <p>-Make sure you’re upping the stakes as you get closer to the ending! The game doesn’t necessarily tell you when to do that (aside from Darkness scene failures), so follow your gut and let that darkness shine!</p> <p>-Sally thinks that this game is a bit difficult for people who have no experience with tabletop roleplaying games. So if you’ve got newbies in your group, make sure you’re checking in with them to make sure they’re getting the most out of the game! Also, probably shepherd them through it with a selected narrator instead of taking turns with that role.</p> <p> </p> <p>A Town Called Malice is on Kickstarter from April 23rd-May 24th: <a href= "https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/monkeyfunstudios/a-town-called-malice-a-nordic-horror-story-game">https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/monkeyfunstudios/a-town-called-malice-a-nordic-horror-story-game</a></p>

Urban Shadows Potluck Blog
<p>As we came into the light from out of the <em>Urban Shadows</em>, we were successfully able to compile our thoughts from our Potluck into a convenient dossier for you alone, visitor.</p> <p>We really like the spread of what kind of characters you can make with each playbook. Each of them have a coherent flavor. Playbooks like The Oracle aren't combat-oriented, but that pushes for more creative role playing. Noa thought the playbooks give interesting spins on fantasy tropes and pointed out The Wolf playbook for its unique moves based around their protection of a neighborhood and loved the Faustian bargain aspect of her playbook, the Tainted. Charlotte thought there were some interesting choices for the playbooks outside the regular tropes of Urban Fantasy and we pointed out there are additional purchasable playbooks available if you want to explore different options. Megan mentioned how the corruption helps balance out character types, giving you the option of being more akin to a poltergeist or a nicer ghost. Sally learned that through play rather than getting it right off the bat, but loved how the choices she made through play helped shape her understanding.</p> <p>Getting deeper into mechanics, we agreed corruption doesn’t really work for one-shots because it matters more in a longer term campaign. Noa mentioned Corruption in general though is amazing and we love having the slippery slope that we can get sucked into the city. As characters get more desperate, they use corruption more and more. Sometimes it's fun to be a little bad. Comparisons were made to the sanity mechanic in Call of Cthulhu and the Doom track in <em>Masks. </em></p> <p>The faction and debt mechanics help to further the game’s themes as well.  PVP is discouraged in games like <em>Masks,</em> and <em>Bedlam Hall</em> has specific PVP play, but we think that <em>Urban Shadows</em> is a good mix of both. You can both help and mess up each others plans. This is best characterized in the debt mechanics, which color your relationships in the game by what favors you do and what you owe each other. The lend a Hand/Get in the Way moves also help to further the grey area politics in the game. Noa mentioned how the characters play at a micro level but the city is functioning on a macro level, which can be both daunting and exciting.</p> <p>Our table was divided on our opinions for the faction mechanics in the game. Some thought they are grouped together in a way that the factions function as a singular entity mechanically but there can be many subfactions narratively that can cause dissonance. Noa mentioned how the factions aren’t meant to be monoliths and the she thinks the faction moves are very good, especially the flavor of putting a name to a face.</p> <p>Delving deeper into basic moves, Marquez felt like there were too many of them. While some agreed and some didn’t, we admitted that the formatting of the playbooks might have also been a trick of the mind where it feels like there are more than there actually are.</p> <p>The vagueness of the Keep Your Cool move was noted upon. The move doesn’t have a significant storytelling trigger that provides an heavy agency for the player. We may have played incorrectly as the move seems best used when singular characters encountering terrifying situations which we agreed can be better explored probably in a less narrative podcast experience.</p> <p>The Let It Out move was noted as being not as beneficial for mortal characters but can be used as a catch all move.</p> <p>We all pretty much agreed that how the stats related to basic moves didn’t feel really intuitive and also the stats names felt strange in relation to what you were doing in game.</p> <p>When it came to how you advance your character, marking factions didn’t really sit well with most of the table, but Noa gave a good argument about exploring the city and how it encourages world building by connecting advancement with actual experience. Megan noted how easy it is to forget to mark that as experience as opposed to the simplicity of failing a roll in other PBtA games. We all agreed, however, that it should be up to the entire table to remember move triggers and experience triggers. </p> <p>Ultimately we liked <em>Urban Shadows</em> and most of us would like to play more of it, though it’s completely understandable if it's not your cup of tea. If you are someone who likes to think politically about wheeling and dealing favors and avoiding falling into the moral morass of your own personal agenda, this game is up your dark and foreboding alley.</p> <p>You can get <em>Urban Shadows </em>at: <a href= "https://www.magpiegames.com/our-games/urban-shadows/">https://www.magpiegames.com/our-games/urban-shadows/</a></p>

Looking Back at PodCon 2
<p>We can’t believe it’s been a month since PodCon 2 in Seattle. Perhaps it’s time for our take on this new convention!</p> <p>Seattle can be a somewhat expensive destination, so is PodCon 2 the con for you? Hopefully, our experiences can help you decide when tickets go on sale for PodCon 3!</p> <p> </p> <p><img src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/107557/20190119_090430.jpg" width="960" height="721" /></p> <p>PodCon is unlike most conventions the Tabletop Potluck team has been to. The location was small and centralized and the convention only lasted 2 days. Unlike many catch-all conventions with a wide variety of topics covered, PodCon only focuses on podcasts.</p> <p>Our very own Ray Goldberg spoke on a panel discussing Collaborative Storytelling in podcasting with Eric Silver (Join the Party), Arnie Niekamp (Hello from the Magic Tavern), Victoria Rogers (Broadswords), Celeste Conowitch (Venture Maidens), and Griffin McElroy (The Adventure Zone). Eric Silver likened DMing as building a house for his friends to come in a decorate and make feel lived in. A house isn’t a home without a party. Griffin McElroy mentioned how trust is important in collaborative storytelling which is why he started the Adventure Zone with the people he trusts the most, his family. Celeste Conowitch also cited trust as she live-streams with her party, and the joy of living in the moment- though the rest of the panel was astounded at her tenacity in doing so. Overall, it was a wonderful time and a great opportunity to work with other actual-play podcasters we admire.</p> <p> </p> <p>Pros:</p> <p>-A great way to possibly meet big podcasters you love and see some interesting live shows</p> <p>-Wonderful meetups for different groups and fans of shows</p> <p>-Very warm atmosphere</p> <p>-There was a quiet room for whenever the con got to be too much for you, but it really should have been made more obvious to everyone</p> <p>-Small venue size means it’s very manageable</p> <p> </p> <p>Cons:</p> <p> - There were some rough scheduling issues leading up to PodCon. It’s hard enough packing in so many panels into only two days, and we would have liked to have had the schedule finalized much earlier than it was for PodCon 2.</p> <p>- This year they decided to go with wristbands instead of badges. The choice made podcasters lose a perfect, visible spot for their business cards.</p> <p>-It would be great if PodCon showed more support for indie podcasts and included a more diverse panel of featured guests. (Also, pay your speakers, PodCon! They do SO MUCH work for nothing)</p> <p>-But really, let’s get more than 2 days for this thing! It was impossible to see everything you wanted to.</p> <p>-There were no physical copies of the schedule available. While going green is appreciated, the convention center has almost no cell service, signal, or wi-fi and it’s therefore unreliable when you’re trying to get the app to load your itinerary.</p> <p>-We were so sad to see the Actual-Play podcast meetup taken away this year. So many featured speakers were part of actual-play podcasts, so this was a really surprising loss.</p> <p> </p> <p>Takeaways and Highlights:</p> <p>“The Multitude workshops were so incredibly helpful for anyone interested in starting a podcast or improving their pre-existing creations. Everything seemed so manageable, and Amanda was a dream of a presenter. They also put all of the information on the Multitude website for anyone!</p> <p>The Spirits Live show was thoroughly enjoyable and Lisette Alvarez was a fantastic guest. It’s a shame this was scheduled at the same time as MBMBAM, because it deserved a bigger space with more viewers.</p> <p>An Evening with Audio Drama Creators. This wasn’t an event that was organized by PodCon. Ada’s Lab was kind enough to welcome a large group of Indi Audio Drama creators for a night of stories, advice, and mutual love. Many tears were shed (for the best reasons) into delicious, podcast-themed cocktails.” -Megan</p> <p> </p> <p>“All in all, PodCon is a special con because of the vibe. Everyone seemed to enjoy each other’s company for the weekend, all united by a shared interest- especially creators. It’s a highly curated experience, which I count as a good thing. PodCon 2 had a LOT to live up to- PodCon 1 is my favorite con I’ve ever been to. It didn’t surpass the experience of the original, but it still was a damn good con.” -Charlotte</p> <p> </p> <p>“The Opening Show: I would watch a Symphony Sanders & Simone de Rochefort talk show all day every day.</p> <p>Finding the Universal in the Diverse: It was incredibly cathartic hearing creators of color talk about their experiences, and now I’ve got a heck of a lot of new podcasts to listen to (but that’s the mantra of the whole weekend, isn’t it?).</p> <p>Transgender Representation in Audio Drama: All the panelists were lovely and thoughtful and vulnerable, and I want to give a special shout-out to Micah Rollins for their skillful and insightful moderation.</p> <p>The Fiction Podcast Meetup: Podcon needs a whole lot more excuses for creators of all exposure levels to hang out and incite collaborations.</p> <p>Managing Your Party- Collaborative Storytelling in Podcasts: I may be biased, but I absolutely loved this panel. Thanks again to all my wonderful co-panelists <3” -Ray</p> <p> </p> <p>“I loved the many shows I was introduced to including programs made through Multitude and the Whisperforge and trying out new shows thanks to live shows. Welcome to the Party Pod, Caravan, and Pump Up the Jam were specific examples of cool new shows for me. However, the best part of the con was definitely meeting new people outside of the panels and meetups! Modly, PodCon is more of a way to meet up with people in the industry in one place and I wish the con did more to support that than meetups with an amorphous meetup area.” -Marquez</p> <p> </p> <p>“The opening and closing shows were entertaining. I enjoyed the live shows of MBMBaM and Hello From the Magic Tavern. The Transgender Representation in Audio Drama panel was insanely inspiring, as was Finding the Universal in the Diverse. I also had fun at the meetups I attended, which were a great way to make new friends and network. And of course, Managing Your Party was awesome for obvious reasons.” -Noa</p> <p> </p> <p>Would we go back to PodCon 3? A lot of us say yes.

Urban Shadows Episode 2: Old Acquaintances on the El, The Architect's Will, and the Family Man
<div class="_2TO-components-SimpleRichTextEditor--paragraphElement" data-block="true" data-editor="9cfkg" data-offset-key="13ivh-0-0"> <div class= "public-DraftStyleDefault-block public-DraftStyleDefault-ltr" data-offset-key="13ivh-0-0"><span data-offset-key="13ivh-0-0">On the second episode of Urban Shadows, we continue our snapshots into the lives of our characters as they uncover secrets and mysteries among the dark streets of Chicago. An anthropologist who wants to be done with this city finds herself back in the world of monsters and their hunters, a tourist of a ghost tries to make the best of her afterlife, and a corporate wizard just wants to get home to his family.  Their lives are spotlighted here amongst the shadows.</span></div> </div> <div class="_2TO-components-SimpleRichTextEditor--paragraphElement"

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Alas, our romp through the fractal role-playing game</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Microscope</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">has ended.  It’s time to take out those slides and call it a day. Here’s what we thought:</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Charlotte thinks the layout and design of the book is great and easy to navigate. If you need to find a rule quickly, you can look at the tabs on the side and find it quickly. There are also some great essays in the back about the nature of the game and roleplaying. A physical copy is A+.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We love the idea of the palette. It can be about the players’ personal comfort, but also about pushing the story in interesting ways. You can mash up genres or subvert ideas by including or not including certain ideas. It’s a multipurpose tool.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">At first we had a little bit of a hard time playing out of chronological order. However, once we had the basics of our world set up it was nice to fill in the gaps and set a roadmap. Noa pointed out that themes emerge organically the longer you play the game. But in the beginning you are a little adrift. Ray brought up the “tyranny of choice” we talk about oh so often, but it rings true here—there’s a whole world for you to choose from.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Microscope</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">talks about how it forbids collaboration, or at least collaboration as we normally think of it. Being the lens is like being in the hot seat—no one can help you out. We got so into it that it was hard not to interject or try to help out. Megan had some trouble coming up with ideas but she eventually came up with some great ones. You can sit for a long time thinking, but people can really come out of their shell.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">On that note, it feels like you can’t get to attached to a concept, because someone else can break it or destroy it, or just take it in a different direction than you wanted. Stepping on toes is slightly inevitable, but you should embrace it. You just have to keep building.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">For scenes, the rule is that you must stop once you’ve answered the question that was posed at the start. It can be hard to stop when you’ve answered the question and it feels like things are just getting good, but the opposite can also happen, where you get distracted and get farther away from the question. In</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Microscope,</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">it’s important to stay focused. However, because it was difficult, the game was better for it. There is a purpose to every scene.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The game supports all sorts of scenes. There are lots of action examples in the book, but we stayed away from that bc that’s not what we were interested in role-playing. And that’s okay! In addition, if you don’t like roleplaying, you can do fewer scenes, or do dictated scenes instead. There are lots of options.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We’d also like to point out a mechanic we literally never used; you can choose to “push” something in a scene. If you think you have a better idea than someone else in a scene, you can bring it up and everyone votes on the new ideas brought to the table. Megan pointed out it’s great for making a world everyone is happy with.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Microscope</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">can be a fun, casual game to play with friends. However, be warned, you will need enough space for all the index cards. We want an official app, if there isn’t one already.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">It’s a great game if you want to convert people to TTRPGs. You could play this game with strangers, old friends, new friends, etc.  You could also play this game to build a world to play another game in. Or you could play it with people who are new to games, or to get people out of their shell. The possibilities are pretty endless with</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Microscope.</span></em></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The goal of microscope is simply to find out what happens. It’s definitely a one of a kind game, and we liked it a lot.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">You can get</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Microscope: a Fractal Role-Playing Game of Epic Histories</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">by Ben Robbins at</span> <a href= "http://www.lamemage.com/microscope/"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">http://www.lamemage.com/microscope/</span></a></p> <p> </p>

Microscope Episode 1: Accidental Armistice
<p>In our first episode of Microscope, we get acquainted with the rules of the game and define our story with bookends and a palette. Then, we delve deeper to focus on the periods, events, and scenes within this vast expanse. Topics range from accidental armistices, supercomputers, ascending meat flesh, Nikolas Kage, and many, many Nancys.</p> <p>CAST</p> <p>Charlotte Elena</p> <p>Ray Golberg</p> <p>Noa Heinrich</p> <p>Megan Scharlau</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p>SOUNDTRACK<br /> Theme music by Riley Allen, <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/posts/23009254/rileyallen59.wixsite.com/music%20"> <strong>rileyallen59.wixsite.com/music</strong></a><br /> "Ave Marimba", "Danse Morialta", and "Evening Melodrama" by Kevin MacLeod (<a href="http://incompetech.com/" target="_blank" rel= "nofollow noopener"><strong>incompetech.com</strong></a>), licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License, <a href= "https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/" target="_blank" rel= "nofollow noopener"><strong>http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/</strong></a></p> <p>Learn more about Microscope at <a href= "http://www.lamemage.com/microscope/" target="_blank" rel= "nofollow noopener"><strong>http://www.lamemage.com/microscope/</strong></a></p> <p>This episode is supported by <a href="https://t.co/6rbBqQoWjT" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener">Kwest</a> </p> <p>Follow Tabletop Potluck on <a href= "facebook.com/tabletoppotluck">Facebook</a> and <a href= "twitter.com/tabletoppotluck">Twitter</a></p> <p>Support the show at <a href= "patreon.com/tabletoppotluck">patreon.com/tabletoppotluck</a></p>

Trollbabe Potluck Blog
<p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Trollbabe</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">is a unique game, even by our standards, and we had a lot of fun unpacking what just happened.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Mechanically-speaking,</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Trollbabe</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">is the very definition of lightweight. Character creation, for instance, was a quick experience. The only real decision you need to make is to decide your character’s single stat, a number between 2 and 9 that determines how good your character is at combat, magic, and socializing. After that’s decided, everything else is details that help round out your trollbabe’s personality and history.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This one stat system is both</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Trollbabe</span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">’s greatest strength and weakness. On the plus side, all dice rolls are quickly resolved: roll below your stat to fight, roll above it to cast a spell, and roll with the worst of the two, inclusive, to convince somebody. The downside of this mechanic is that your character will either be very good at fighting or magic, or just OK at everything. This feels awfully like min-maxing.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Trollbabe</span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">’s most unusual aspect is its approach to conflict. On paper, it looks extremely complicated, but it actually works very smoothly in practice. Deciding the pace of a conflict is a conversation between player and GM, and once the conflict is underway one can breeze through it quite quickly. Most intriguing of all, the reroll system allows players to introduce new plot elements and NPCs on the fly, allowing the narrative to evolve in unexpected ways. At its heart,</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Trollbabe</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">is a collaborative storytelling game, and the conflict system embodies that fact.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The world of</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Trollbabe</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">is a mishmash of Germanic history, Norse folklore, and swords-and-sorcery adventure. If this isn’t to your liking, the book gives you plenty of freedom to define the setting in any way you like. One of</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Trollbabe</span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">’s strengths is that it is extremely adaptable, and the setting could conceivably be adapted to suit any setting.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Overall, we were very pleased with our experience with</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Trollbabe</span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">. It’s a game that’s easy to pick up and play with a small group of friends. If you enjoy a rules-lite storytelling experience that can be picked up quickly, then</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Trollbabe</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">is an experience that you don’t want to miss.

A Gamehole Con Review
<p>If you were in Madison, WI at the start of November, we hope you were lucky enough to attend Gamehole Con at the Alliant Energy Center. Megan had the chance to enjoy the first couple days of the con and had a blast!<img src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/107557/20181108_135404.jpg" width="1000" height="751" /> </p> <p>As a Con-Goer used to the likes of Gencon and NYCC, this con was completely different. Gamehole Con is a tabletop gaming convention with an average of only a few thousand attendees. For example, 2017 brought 3,000 gamers. This year appears to have brought a bump, but was perhaps around 5,000 total.</p> <p>For such a small convention, there were some absolutely incredible guests. Monte Cook (Numenera), Jeremy Crawford (D&D), Matthew Mercer (Critical Role), Chris Perkins (Wizards of the Coast), and Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles) are only a few of the names found among seminar hosts. Her chronicle through the con begins below.</p> <p>----</p> <p>As per usual, I spent far too much time in the dealer’s hall. But unlike most cons I’m used to, I found some of the most incredible deals on games. That’s the joy of small cons: You actually get to know the publishers and they really want to make everyone’s day. I spent a good deal of time chatting with Atlas Games about <em>Gloom</em> and <em>Once Upon a Time</em>, two card games which I recently fell in love with.</p> <p><strong><em>#1 New Game:</em></strong> <em>Betrayal Legacy</em></p> <p>I wasn’t fast enough to get my hands on a copy, but this skyrocketed to the top of my birthday wish list. I personally love the Legacy series and having past games affect everything after them. And there were great deals on it even though it’s so new! From this alone, it became obvious just how much money you can save doing your game shopping here.</p> <p><strong><em>Game at a Glance:</em></strong> <em>Stuffed Fables</em></p> <p>Gamehole Con has an impressive lending library, and my friends and I were able to escape the chill of the night by playing <em>Stuffed Fables</em> by Plaid Hat Games.</p> <p>I’ve always thought the game sounded adorable, and I was right. I honestly wasn’t sure how I would feel about the game as I spent what felt like ages setting it up. The rules weren’t sticking in my mind, and the amount of tokens was slightly overwhelming.</p> <p>But after about 30 minutes, it all clicked.</p> <p>The storytelling aspect, the adorable minis, the cooperative tone… I fell in love. Once again, a new game for my birthday list. Just make sure you keep all your stuffing and buttons close!</p> <p> <img src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/107557/20181109_152340.jpg" alt="" width="1000" height="750" /></p> <p>Seminar Highlights: <strong>Everything You Wanted to Know About D&D (But were Too Cool to Ask)</strong></p> <p>As a start to my Gamehole Con seminars, I sat in on Rob Wieland, Satine Phoenix, Tom Lommel, Ruty Rutenberg, and James Lowder discussing what they find most important when you’re sitting down to play a game of D&D.</p> <ul> <li>Satine Phoenix made a point that stuck with me and rang true to our mission statement as a podcast: “When you do something, it gives everyone else out there permission to do it that way too.” Whether it’s using feminine pronouns in your rulebook, making LGBTQ characters, or standing up for what you believe in, stepping out from the “norm” gives others the courage to do the same. It can change expectations and alter the landscape of the streaming platform, which in turn affects how games are approached at home.</li> <li>In response to a discussion on living up to your streaming heroes, the entire panel had a lot to say. Tom Lommel pointed out that “every live stream that you watch and enjoy is specifically cast with actors… you have no obligation to fill those shoes.” He wanted to make sure that all players just try to “enjoy the game in your way. You don’t have to be the dungeon bastard.” Chiming in, Rob Weiland added “It’s like picking up a guitar and then being really upset you aren’t Eric Clapton.”</li> </ul> <p>After discussing livestreaming and acting as players, the hosts had some tips for those who would rather control the game as Dungeon Masters.</p> <ul> <li>“The most dangerous words you can ever say as a DM are ‘you don’t know’ and ‘nothing happens’ when the players give you anything.” Tom Lommel continued, saying GMs should “find something interesting that happens that’s different. It may not be entirely relevant, but give them a specific detail.” For example, if the players are trying to open a portal and mess with a control knob that wasn’t the intended solution, have the temperature drop 10 degrees. This will keep true to the fact that they haven’t solved your puzzle, but gives them something else that they may make use later while keeping the story flowing smoothly.</li> <li>Rob Weiland believes that all DMs should “give thought to how they can resolve an encounter physically, mentally, and socially. Don’t choose an option they have to use, but you can turn the dial on if it will be easier one way. As long as you’ve given thought to each approach, you’ll still be able to figure it out.” This way, you’ll keep your game suited to all types of players and quickly learn the playstyle that your group prefers.</li> </ul> <p> <img src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/107557/20181108_150436.jpg" alt="" width="1000" height="750" /></p> <p>Seminar Spotlight: <strong>Assembling Imagination</strong></p> <p>This Friday afternoon seminar, hosted by Matt Finch, Peter Brett, Pat Rothfuss, and Matt Forbeck discussed the tools it takes to build a compelling world and story in both fiction and roleplaying scenarios.</p> <p>Patrick Rothfuss gave us some sweet insights into his life with his caring child by telling us just how much he learned from listening to his child’s desires and choices in their games. After some very unexpected reactions to the NPCs his son encountered, he realized faults in the typical narrative of looting corpses and taking advantage of the hospitality of those who need your help. As Patrick put it: “What are you teaching people? Are you teaching people that this old man who is lost is an item dispenser? That he’s a disposable bump in your story? Or is he a person worthy of compassion?”</p> <p>A compelling story doesn’t need to be driven by violent conflict. It doesn’t need a villain who wants to kill everyone. It doesn’t need you to witness the deaths of innocents all along the way. Stories like that can be incredible, but that isn’t the only kind of story. And you should open your mind, especially when tailoring a game to children, to other options. Use the stories to teach them valuable lessons and learn from them in return.</p> <p>The conversation naturally progressed to discussion of creating diverse worlds. Fellow authors praised Peter Brett for having so many women in his stories. He put his opinion very simply: “It’s not enough to have a woman in the command seat of the starship. Half the people turning knobs behind her have to be women too.”<br /> And as a woman in love with the fantasy and science fiction genres, I have to agree with him.   </p> <p> </p> <p><img src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/107557/20181109_142826.jpg" alt="" width="1000" height="750" /></p> <p>Spotlight: <strong>True Dungeon<br /></strong> I have always loved escape rooms, haunted houses, and any fantasy themed locations. So you can imagine that when I first heard of True Dungeon years ago at Gencon, I was very intrigued. The only problem was my experiences as a woman in gaming. I was scared that I would be treated as an intruder in a place I wasn’t thought to belong. I finally gathered the courage to try True Dungeon at Gamehole con since it is far more approachable. And I was quickly proven wrong for my worries. From the moment I walked in, players and workers alike treated me like a valuable asset to their team and the story. Strangers became temporary friends and everyone worked to make sure that their entire team had the best experience possible. I can’t say if this is the way every True Dungeon experience is, but it gives me so much hope.</p> <p>Now, True Dungeon itself is gorgeous. The production quality and puzzle/fight variance is out of this world. I couldn’t stop smiling and two hours felt more like twenty minutes. I would play again in a heartbeat. If you’ve been on the fence like I was, you should take the leap. Try it out!</p> <p>Spotlight: <strong>Paint and Take<br /></strong> One beautiful thing about holding a smaller con is the ability to offer experiences that just wouldn’t work in a large con setting. One prime example is the mini painting area. Unlike other cons where you need to pay to paint, Gamehole Con holds a small corner of the convention center where you can take a mini that was donated to the convention, paint it, get tips from pros, let it dry, and take it with you when its ready. The selection might be small, but as long as I was there, there were miniatures available to whoever was interested. I had the pleasure of painting beside Amy Vorpahl, and took my sweet orc boy home to star in my next D&D game.</p> <p><img src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/107557/20181109_192014.jpg" alt="" width="1000" height="750" /></p> <p> </p> <p>In conclusion, if you love tabletop games but don’t want to fight the crowds somewhere like Gencon, Gamehole Con is a perfect chance for you to get out there and meet creators you love, play some awesome games, and get your hands on the best new products.</p> <p>I'll see you next year!</p> <p><img src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/107557/20181108_135439.jpg" alt="" width="1000" height="750" /></p>

Dungeons & Dragons Potluck Blog
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Reviewing a game like</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Dungeons & Dragons</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">is a daunting task. It’s a game with decades of history, it invented a new kind of entertainment, and is literally the reason we are here making this podcast for you. Each of us has personal history with D&D as well, so we all have</span> <strong>very strong opinions</strong> <span style="font-weight: 400;">on the rules and flavor. Nevertheless, we have tried to be as objective as possible in our assessment.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Mechanically speaking,</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">D&D</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">can be summed up as “easy to learn, difficult to master.” The basic mechanic of the game is to roll a 20-sided die, then add any modifiers from your stats and training, and compare the result with the difficulty level. However, the rules have a width and depth that can be daunting for first-time players. There are mechanics for almost anything, and circumstances can complicate a seemingly simple action. For example, combat ground to a halt in our final battle because the DM had to check whether or not the Mad Bard was susceptible to Megan’s Sleep spell.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Character creation is complex, but satisfying. At first it can be quite challenging, especially because the rules for races, classes, backgrounds, and spells are spread throughout</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">The</span></em> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Player’s Handbook</span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">, which requires a great deal of flipping back and forth. For many of us, creating</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">D&D</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">characters has become an enjoyable hobby, which speaks to how easy it is to master the art of character creation after that initial confusion.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The biggest complaint we had about</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">D&D</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">was balance, specifically of the classes. There is a sharp divide between spellcasting and non-spellcasting characters. The former tends to start weak, but get almost impossibly powerful by higher levels, while the latter begin strong but don’t get many exciting new class features after level 10 or so. And simply put, some classes are better than others; sorcerers and Rangers are notoriously underpowered in vanilla</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">D&D</span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">. Supplementary materials released since then have addressed this balance to some extent, but not everybody uses or has access to those materials.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Flavorfully,</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">D&D</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">has a surprising amount of width. While it is possible to play it as a generic high-fantasy adventure, you can play campaigns that embody every genre from urban fantasy to eldritch horror. It’s not uncommon for a single party to leap from genre to genre in one campaign. There are also several, extremely detailed campaign settings available, but it’s easy to run a game of</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">D&D</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">without one as well.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Dungeons & Dragons</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">has two things that no other game has: it has an iconic feel, and a massive community. It’s difficult to explain why</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">D&D</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">gives us such a strong sense of satisfaction. Perhaps it’s because it is so intrinsic to the history of TTRPGs, but playing it feels a lot like coming home and watching your favorite movie all over again. And while the</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">D&D</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">community is occasionally dysfunctional, it is also one of the most bizarre, surprising places you’ll ever see. If you have never played</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Dungeons & Dragons,</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">chances are you can find somebody out there who would love to teach you. It is no exaggeration to say that it has created lifelong friendships.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Overall, we highly recommend</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Dungeons & Dragons, 5th Edition</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">. It is accessible enough for casual and new players, but mechanically deep enough for gaming veterans. We don’t recommend it be the only game you ever play—in fact, we hope you branch out—but you owe it to yourself to give it a try at least once.</span></p>

Kickstarter Update!
<p>Hey guys!</p> <p>Our Kickstarter is still up and running, but we only have 14 days left! We are only $166.00 away from our next goal, which is having the Tabletop Potluck crew make and eat Gatorade chicken. That sounds like fun for everyone to watch and hear, but not so much for us, the people eating it.</p> <p>If you back us now (because you definitely want to see us eat that Gatorade chicken), you can get dice stickers, an NPC named after you, and so much more! We also added a new reward to all the tiers, a PDF recipe book of all the potluck recipes we have had on the show.</p> <p>The amazing people who have backed us already unlocked the first stretch goal we have, having the Tabletop Potluck crew eat chocolate and M&M spaghetti! We have bought the spaghetti, chocolate sauce, and M&Ms; next step is to make it, eat it, and record all of it for you all to hear and see!</p> <p>There are add-ons for you all to purchase to make us eat even more disgusting things. At the lower end of the list, you could pay $10.00 to make our very own Sally Chan eat whatever you wish! At the higher end, Ms. Ray Goldberg would be willing to eat anything for a good $30.00. If you want the full list, take a look at our Kickstarter and definitely put that money down to decide what we get to eat.</p> <p>Coming to the end of this post, we would like to thank you all. We have been absolutely shocked with the amount of support from everyone and we are even more motivated to bring better content and quality to you all. Please leave us a review on iTunes or anywhere you listen to podcasts and check out all of our social media!

Fiasco Potluck Blog
<p>Now that we've recovered from our <em>Fiasco</em>, let's take a step back and talk about the system.</p> <p>Absolutely everything about your characters and the setting is rolled at the table with no preparation, the plot unfolds itself as you go along, and there's no game master to keep you on track, so <em>Fiasco </em>is bound to be a chaotic experience. If you don't mind relinquishing control to the whims of fate and improvisation, you may find that's a good thing.</p> <p>Most of us enjoyed the character and relationship creation system; it's hugely open-ended and lets you interpret the labels you roll as broadly as you want. However, the tyranny of choice can set in once it's actually time to play, since now you're left to craft a fully realized character based off only a few words.</p> <p>The fact that you're all just hitting the ground running means that you may not have a satisfying coherent narrative structure, but the point isn't to create the next great American novel, it's to have fun.</p> <p>Even though <em>Fiasco</em> was designed with heist films in mind, there are hundreds of official and fan-made playbooks for you to explore whatever genre strikes your fancy, from rom-coms to slasher flicks.</p> <p>We generally liked that the game is broken up into scenes where each character gets their chance in the spotlight. Resolving versus establishing could sometimes be frustrating. For example, maybe you're not a big fan of the premise that was established for you, or something that happened in the scene before yours totally ruined the idea you had. However, within the world you've created the scenes can be whatever you want, even flashbacks, which is an opportunity we enjoyed.</p> <p>The act and scene system efficiently shepherds the narrative along, especially the inter-act Tilt mechanic which advances the plot by giving the players additional goals to accomplish by the end of play. Some people weren't big fans of the fact that the game has a hard stop of when the game has to end (running out of scene dice), but others appreciated that the game is going to go where it goes and sometimes you have to shrug and make the best of what you have. The ending mechanic of adding up your white dice and black dice was interesting, but it can sometimes add to a sudden swerve ending that you don't think your character deserved, for better or for worse.</p> <p>Most of us enjoyed the game but emphasized that they enjoyed the game but it's best for loosey-goosey party scenarios and maybe not for a serious tabletop session. If improvising a story from scratch is your idea of a good time, you're gonna like <em>Fiasco</em>. If you're not mentally and emotionally prepared to go in starting from scratch and thinking on your feet, you may be disappointed. You may end up with a more complex game if you play with folks you don't know because of that drive to impress each other and not goof off, but playing with friends will almost result in pushing each other's buttons. And that can be a ton of fun too.</p> <p>If you're ready for your own capers, get both print and PDF copies of <em>Fiasco</em> at <a href= "http://bullypulpitgames.com/games/fiasco/!">http://bullypulpitgames.com/games/fiasco/!</a></p>

GenCon 2018 Write-up
<p><strong>GenCon 2018!</strong></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Tabletop Potluck looks forward to <strong><a href="http://www.gencon.com">GenCon</a></strong> every year. This convention is an incredible experience and involves so many different ways to enjoy our hobby.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We had our panel, <span style= "text-decoration: underline;">Tabletop Potluck’s School for Kids Who Can’t RP Good</span>, on Friday afternoon and it was a blast! Even with some technical difficulties (nothing some theatre-taught projecting couldn’t fix), we loved every minute of interacting with everyone who came. Thank you so much to everyone there! We hope there will be many more to come (fingers crossed for PodCon 2). Keep up your amazing stories and paint those marbles!</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Notable New Games:</span></span></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/248538/The-Witcher-Pen--Paper-RPG"> <strong>The Witcher RPG</strong></a>: Though this looks a bit number crunchy (we would LOVE to see a simpler quickstart guide for this), the character creation is filled with depth to add to your backstory and relationships.</span></li> <li><a href= "https://paizo.com/pathfinderplaytest"><strong>Pathfinder Playtest</strong></a>: We picked up a copy of the playtest for the long awaited 2nd edition of Pathfinder. Stay tuned to see if we try it out for you all to hear! We hope the system streamlines some stuff from the earlier edition. Also, Goblin is a playable race right from the start which is A+! It’s also available in free PDF copies on their site.</li> <li><a href="http://rprod.com/index.php?page=catalog"><strong>Just One</strong></a>: A cooperative party game where you all play together to get the best score! Your goal each round is to get one player- the active player- to guess a mystery word based on the clues given by teammates. It’s a fun twist on a classic party game and should hit shelves this November!</li> <li><a href= "https://transformers.hasbro.com/en-us/tradingcardgame"><strong>Transformers Card Game</strong></a>: Marquez has been an on and off Transformers fan his whole life and it seems that Wizards of the Coast has made an awesome card with simpler mechanics than Magic The Gathering while including a bunch of fan-favorite characters.</li> <li><strong><a href= "http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/228062/Tall-Pines-A-Surreal-Murder-Mystery-Game"> Tall Pines</a></strong>: A narrative card game where you create and solve a mystery in a sleepy mountain town a la Twin Peaks.</li> <li><a href= "https://www.facebook.com/InfinitiesDoF/?ref=br_rs"><strong>Infinities</strong></a>: A 4X game. We did a pared down version minus the narrative elements, so we’re curious to go back and explore the story options and see how it works when you’re on teams. Ray had never played a 4X game before and was able to pick up the rules pretty quickly, so this is a great place to start! The Kickstarter launches August 21<span>st</span><span>!</span></li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Non-games to look out for:</span></span></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://dungeoninabox.com/">Dungeon in a Box</a>: Owned by our good friend David Crennen from CritJuice and Saving Throw Show, Dungeon in a Box is a growing subscription service that sends you great maps, tokens, and more every month!</span></li> <li><a href="https://dryadtea.com/">Dryad Tea</a>: They have some fancy artisanal tea blends.

I played a drow paladin who talked like Rita Repulsa. Also an amaaazing Masks game. Shout-out to the GM Morgan! And the Delta Green panel! I could listen to those guys talk for a while. All very funny and smart and deserving of all those dang Ennies."</li> <li><strong>Megan</strong>: "I always have a great time chatting with David Crennen and this year was no different. Besides catching up with him and praying for a CritJuice finale, I treated myself to some Wyrmwood products and enjoyed spending the con in cosplay. OH SHIT!

They always have stuff running in Champaign/Urbana (which is awesome)."</li> <li><strong>Marquez</strong>: "Sleepily making our way to the Games on Demand room and signing up randomly for a game I’ve never heard of, Masks of the Mummy King and proceeding to have a blast improving our way through a temple, collecting treasure and figuring out puzzles!"</li> <li><strong>Ray</strong>: "Enroute Spa had a massage station. Every con needs a massage station. I also got to meet a couple Internet friends in person for the first time, and met a few new friends of friends whom I hope to see a whole lot more. Also the Delta Green dudes gave some fascinating insights into the world of game design and invigorated me to do more designs of my own. You know what else was invigorating? Getting a massage. I’m still not over it."</li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And that’s a wrap!</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">TLDR: <strong><a href= "http://www.gencon.com">GenCon</a></strong> is always awesome.

Bedlam Hall Potluck Blog
<p>After we buried the last episode of <em>Bedlam Hall</em>, we had a quick memorial with food and discussed how the experience made us feel.</p> <p>If you need a medium length campaign where players are the driving force instead of just reactionary, read on to see whether <em>Bedlam Hall</em> is the right fate for you!</p> <p>Overall, the entire crew loves the flavor and setting of <em>Bedlam Hall.</em> As fans of Downton Abbey, Lemony Snicket, and the Addams Family, we found similar themes within the depths of this game. It’s very easy to make it very subtly creepy while knowing all along it’s gonna be a scary game. You can lean into either whimsy or terror with your campaign so that it’s the perfect level for your gaming group! As veterans of games like Call of Cthulhu, we felt a stark difference in <em>Bedlam</em>. Instead of striving to solve the mystery, your characters are trapped in a terrible situation that they just need to soldier through. Instead of being a hero, you remain a servant. You do your job. And your job is not to defeat monsters.</p> <p>That being said, it makes sense that this is the first game we’ve played where there is no system for combat. Cruel moves may have violent effects, but there are no mechanics for fighting monsters or each other. But this is also the first system that has claimed the lives of our characters. We find the choice to leave out combat perfect for the setting. In this day and age of tabletop, it’s very bold to avoid combat mechanics. More games should make this choice and it definitely pays off in <em>Bedlam.</em></p> <p>Many of our players had a difficult time fully embodying the spirit of the game; we don’t tend to strive to hurt each other. We’re usually much more cooperative. But Marquez, who embraced it the most, did a great job and had a blast. This is a game where you need to get into the mindset of PvP to fully experience it. Our group was a little torn on this competitive aspect. Those who ever enjoy PvP did not enjoy it here. Those who thrive on competition understandably loved it.</p> <p>As we often discuss, this game is more of a ROLE-playing game than a ROLL-playing game. Moreso than any other Powered by the Apocalypse games we’ve played, the playbook you choose radically changes the experience of the game for you, what you are able to do, and what your goals will be. Moves are written in such a way as to create beautiful opportunities for scenes.</p> <p>Tips from the GM:<br /> 1. For the sake of story, we wanted this to be the servants’ first day. If you want to really delve into the PvP relationships, do not do this. We could have gotten to a lot of meat and suggested relationships much faster if we had created established members of the household.<br /> 2. Spread out the supernatural elements between characters so everyone is having a good bout of creepy experiences.<br /> 3. Since the game is PvP and all of the playbooks lead characters to do very different things, make sure you’re keeping track of where every character is and how much “screen time” each player is getting.</p> <p>A few things we are unsure of or would like to see changed in later editions:<br /> 1. The book of <em>Bedlam Hall</em> includes alternate settings, but it does not appear to necessarily be an easily customizable game. Including a section to create your own rooms and family members would be a fantastic addition to this game.<br /> 2. The book is incredibly helpful because it includes examples of every concept. But this makes a majority of the book look the same. An index is needed in order to quickly navigating concepts.<br /> 3. The character sheets do not include the relationships mentioned in the book. This didn’t affect our game since we skipped that section, but it’s an important reference for character building and roleplay and should be easily referenced during play.</p> <p>Overall 5/6 of the Tabletop Potluck crew said they would play <em>Bedlam Hall</em> again. This game would be perfect for strangers meeting up at a gaming convention. It’s also an experience that would be great to GM for different groups to see how each react.</p> <p>Now go out and dive in! Sign a contract! Sell your soul!

Stars Without Number Potluck Blog
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">After we returned to Earth from our trip amongst</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Stars Without Number</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">, we sat down and discussed our feelings about the game. Read on to see whether</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Stars Without Number</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">is the system for you to use in your next campaign!</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">One of the strengths of</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Stars Without Number</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">is its robust galaxy creation system, which allows you to roll dice to determine where stars fall on a galaxy map, what a planet is like, and what goals and quests for the group are to be offered. We recommend</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Stars Without Number</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">as a great GM’s tool, even if you don’t want to play the system. The randomization has the capability to produce, well, stars without number (and planets and people). There are also add-ons that we didn’t get to explore including things like transhumanism, AI and alien characters, and even adding magic to your sci-fi world. It truly is an old school treasure box of an RPG.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">One of the faults of the randomized/ multi-quest options, was Marquez not realizing that the stakes of one of the missions was a lot more in line with the players sensibilities. Though there are opportunities for many different adventure options at the same time, maybe stick with one for a short form game like the one we played. But all missions that were rolled randomly were certainly interesting and compelling. The open world nature feels more attuned to long term play with friends.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The game tends to be about exploratory adventures rather than story-based adventures. If you want to visit weird worlds and meet interesting people who need help, this game is definitely for you. The options can seem a little daunting, but that’s all a part of the adventure.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We also found that the game has a steep difficulty curve for players. The monster statistics aren’t geared to player level, but instead remain the same no matter what the level of the characters. This provided an interesting playstyle but a consistently difficult one. This also makes the choice to avoid combat more of a valid decision for a party to make, unlike other games. It also makes death</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">very</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">easy, especially at lower levels. We eased up on that rule a little for narrative sake, and because we felt that the hardcore nature of the game wasn’t our style, but it definitely is worth exploring. The tone of the game-- being in a meat grinder of a  world where you can die easily and you aren’t big time adventurers-- is super cool. Some of us weren’t about that, but Sally especially was excited because she felt it made every choice important and gave it weight.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Character creation was easy when provided with a guide, which the book handily does. The psychic class proved a little difficult because there are additional rules to go through. Your character having a background and a focus instead of a subclass allows you more variety in character creation, showcasing different personalities. A smoother multiclassing option opens up even more possibilities and was also much loved. The idea that a skill of 0 is required not to have a negative modifier makes sense, though is not inherently intuitive in play, especially in conversation with other similar, skill based RPG systems. It should also be mentioned the Tabletop Potluck crew were all</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">very</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">confused about how rolling HP works when you level up.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Ultimately, we here at Tabletop Potluck loved</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Stars Without Number</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">, and recommend it if you want to go exploring in space. The full rules are available online for free here:</span></p> <p><a href= "http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/230009/Stars-Without-Number-Revised-Edition-Free-Version"> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/230009/Stars-Without-Number-Revised-Edition-Free-Version</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">.

Endless Realms Potluck Blog
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Will</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Endless Realms</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">by Lunar Games be your new favorite game? We think it could be! To learn more, you should listen to the full potluck episode <a href= "http://tabletoppotluck.libsyn.com/endless-realms-episode-five-potluck"> here</a>, and also to our whole adventure. But reading this blog post is also a good start.</span></p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Endless Realms</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">bills itself as a game that balances accessibility and depth, and we found that to be a very accurate description. There were a lot of “crunchy” options for people who like their games to be more tactically complex, but the system was also intuitive enough that players can jump right in. Paired with some truly unique world-building,</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Endless Realms</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">is a singular game, with only a few potential hiccups to disrupt the experience.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">From a mechanical standpoint,</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Endless Realms</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">was dense without being inaccessible. We found the central mechanic-- all rolls are contested instead of being against a fixed value-- to be easy to learn, and it led to a lot of interesting situations. Daunting situations and simple problems both have possibilities of going surprisingly well or catastrophically bad.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Combat in particular is fast-paced and easy to learn, and often feels like a JRPG; the game even has action points and MP. We did have some mixed opinions on a few mechanics, such as the fact that you don’t roll to deal damage, but overall we appreciated</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">ER</span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">’s approach to tactical combat. One thing to keep in mind is that the book specifically calls for playing with a hexagonal grid and miniatures, and we don’t know how well combat runs if you don’t have these tools.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Most of the speed bumps we ran into were during character creation. The process took a long time and was not always intuitive. This game has a lot of stats. There are several blocks of statistics, and each block is populated using a point-buy system. The pool of points was different for each stat-block, and when you are new to the game it can be hard to decide which stats to prioritize. We also hope that the full release of the game will provide a reference of how the stats scale, because we weren’t sure just how strong a character with a Strength of 3 was.</span></p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Endless Realms</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">truly shines when you get to the world-building. The world of Lumis is very different from the usual Tolkien-inspired settings you typically see in fantasy RPGs. There are clear influences from games like Final Fantasy, but it’s altogether its own beast. We particularly liked that the racial options weren’t limited to human-like mammals; how many other RPGs let you play as a sentient plant? Because the setting is so unique, we found it odd to find a few familiar faces, including dragons, gnolls, and kobolds. Humans were also a bit underdeveloped as a playable race, and we found ourselves wishing</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">ER</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">would either develop them more or get rid of them altogether.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The class options were also pleasingly refreshing. The classes have very distinct styles of play, and develop interesting paths as you level up. We were also pleased that the classes had mechanics that operated outside of combat, which is an oversight too many games make. However, the classes’ uniqueness was also a bit restrictive. How many different ways are there to play a Ninja?</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Overall, we loved</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Endless Realms</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">. If you prefer a game with lots of statistics and in-depth tactical combat, you will not be disappointed. If you enjoy swords-and-sorcery adventure but are tired of elves and orcs, then this is the game for you. Players who don’t want a lot of dice-rolling may be discouraged, but the mechanics were not so dense as to put off those of us who prefer rules-lite games. As of publication,</span> <a href= "https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/787449168/endless-realms-rpg"> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Endless Realms’</span></em></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/787449168/endless-realms-rpg"> Kickstarter campaign</a> is 94% funded with a little over a week to go.

Call of Cthulhu Potluck Blog
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Interested in Chaosium’s</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Call of Cthulhu</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’re breaking down all the juicy, fleshy, pulsating bits of 6th edition. For our full thoughts, check out the potluck episode <a href= "http://tabletoppotluck.libsyn.com/call-of-cthulhu-episode-six-potluck-0"> here</a>.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We love the flavor of</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Call of Cthulhu.</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">There’s something instantly appealing about cosmic horror. Maybe we just like to be reminded of how insignificant we are in the universe.</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">CoC</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">of course also lends itself well to historical fiction, being based off of stories primarily written at the turn of the century.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We also greatly enjoyed the sanity mechanics. It’s the one aspect of the game where the mechanics and flavor match up perfectly- it’s a great synergy. However, we felt other aspects of the game could have been switched out with other rules with little or no effect. The Basic Role-Playing (BRP) system doesn’t really have an effect on the game.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">What BRP does have is skills. Lots of skills. 58-60 of them, in fact (depending on what time period you are playing in). On the plus side, being based on percentages makes it straightforward to understand how good you are at each of your 10,000 skills. BRP also has lots of tables. Which is fine if you like tables, but we noticed that the game can come to a screeching halt while the Keeper looks up the resistance table for a ruling. Another common complaint about BRP is something that happened to us quite often. If you miss your spot hidden check, for instance, you don’t spot the clue. Failing a role like that can also grind the plot to a halt. We do admit there is something elegant about the percentages though, you either do it or you don’t. No muss no fuss.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Character creation can take a long time and is designed to be from the bottom up (basing your character and occupation around the skills you rolled as opposed to assigning your rolls to what best fits your character concept), which we did not do. Though we all think it would be really fun to do bottom-up character creation next time. We enjoyed the fact that character creation pushed the fact that you are a person with various skills, like real people. You have occupation points to put into your skills, but you also have hobby points to put into them after you’ve picked your occupation skills. It makes your character well rounded. You took scuba diving lessons one time? You refurbish furniture on the weekends? Took a few Spanish classes? Hobby points! There’s no leveling up in</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">CoC</span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">, but you can add points to skills by performing them well. A quick note though: it’s best to create a character who wants to or has a reason to investigate the mythos.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Combat feels like a different game. Combat is something you’re supposed to avoid, as it is supposed to be lethal is</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Call of Cthulhu</span></em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">. The book mentions that if you’re in a gunfight, you’ve done something wrong. But of course, the rulebook has multiple pages of tables dedicated to all sorts of guns. You can see the dissonance there. The nice thing is that it’s very straightforward: you have your initiative and you take turns, and there’s not much more to it. But here’s our hot-take to Chaosium and other game devs: your game doesn’t need to have combat.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Horror roleplaying itself is an interesting beast. Ideally, you yourself should be scared, but you also have to roleplay your character being scared. What</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">CoC</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">does right is adding mystery. Horror and mystery is a good combination, as you have an impetus for moving forward. If you’ve never played a Horror RPG, you’ll have a lot of new RP opportunities. Temporary insanity is something we didn’t get to showcase this time around but is a perfect example of that.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Would we play</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Call of Cthulhu</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">again? Yes! However, due to the nature of the game and its time periods, we feel content warnings are a must. Be sensitive to other people’s triggers, especially if you’re the keeper. There’s a fine line between scaring and enticing your players and sending them into a panic attack. If you’re a player, let your keeper know if you have any triggers and if your keeper is a good person, they will adjust their plans accordingly.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Many scenarios take place in older time periods. Be aware of the realities of the time. You can choose to ignore them, or use them to your advantage. Time period shouldn’t stop your from playing a character who you want to play! Luckily, the genre has by and large moved on from its problematic origins, so just do the opposite of what Lovecraft would have wanted you to do, and you should be golden.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And that’s our take on Call of Cthulhu, 6th edition! If you like horror, we recommend it. It’s a cornerstone of pen and paper roleplaying games, for good reason. You can get</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Call of Cthulhu</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">(6th AND 7th edition!) at <a href="chaosium.com">chaosium.com</a> or likely at your local game store.</span></p>

Masks Potluck Blog
<p>Curious about Masks: A New Generation? You should be, because it's a heckin' good game! For the most in-depth look, we recommend listening to our <a href= "http://tabletoppotluck.libsyn.com/masks-episode-five-potluck">potluck episode</a> of the podcast, but if you're looking for more of a super-speedy rundown, here it is!</p> <p>Masks, like most Powered by the Apocalypse games, is fairly mechanics-light and is great for players who are most invested in the roleplaying and storytelling. If you're new to tabletop games, this is a great jumping-on point. You have a limited stable of stats and moves which are streamlined and easy to keep track of.</p> <p>If you love superhero fiction, especially when it comes to teen heroes, you're going to adore Masks. In between the action and suspense, the system guides you to create some beautiful coming of age stories. Flavorfully it has shades of Teen Titans, Young Justice, Young Avengers, et cetera. But hey, even if superheroes aren't usually your jam, Masks still might have something that grabs you; some of our team members actually don't like comics very much, but they adore Masks because you can bring as much levity and humanity to it as you want.</p> <p>Masks uses the classic PBTA mechanic of having failures be fun, which is a great plus to storytelling. In this case they have the concept of "potential", where the only way you can level up and grow as a hero is when you fail your rolls. Failures end up being just as narratively interesting as successes, not to mention how fun it is to have the bittersweet "mixed" successes.</p> <p>Even with a stellar game like Masks, there's bound to be some elements that don't gel as well with everyone. One frustration is that while the potential system is fun, if luck has it that you're consistently rolling high then you won't level up as consistently as your teammates, and if you keep rolling low, you might find yourself with new swag that you don't feel like you've earned yet. Also some of the actions you'll want to take don't neatly line up with any of the predetermined moves, which means it's up to the GM to make up a custom move in the spur of the moment and figure out how that translates mechanically. </p> <p>If you're interested in GMing Masks, know that you'll have to be extremely flexible and quick on the uptake, but the book is on your side and helpfully outlines all the resources you'll need. Because there's no defined turn order or rounds, PCs can essentially go whenever they want, and so it's on the GM to ensure that everyone's working together and everyone has a fair shot.</p> <p>Character creation is explicitly itemized, but you get a surprising amount of creative license for just circling attribute options. Certain playbooks will restrict you to certain superpowers, but it's up to you to interpret what that entails. Creating a team also means figuring out your characters' relationships with each other and with the world before you've even started the game, which helps to kickstart camaraderie and motivations.</p> <p>The podcast episode ends with us playing out the end-of-session roundup where everyone reflects on how their character has changed, and adjusts their stats accordingly, so give that a listen if you want to see how that works. And if you want a closer look at how we created our characters and their relationships, we have a new bonus episode on our <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/tabletoppotluck">Patreon</a> outlining just that!</p> <p> </p> <p>Let's just say it, we love Masks: A New Generation to little shiny pieces, and we resoundingly recommend it. If you'd like to see more of this story and these characters, let us know, because we'd love to play some more! To play Masks for yourself, get a hardcover copy, paperback copy, or a PDF from <a href= "http://www.magpiegames.com/shop/">http://www.magpiegames.com/shop</a>/., and enjoy!</p>

Mouse Guard Potluck Blog
<p>This is the abridged version of our discussion of <em>Mouse Guard</em>. We encourage you to <a href= "http://tabletoppotluck.libsyn.com/mouse-guard-episode-four-potluck"> listen to our full, in-depth potluck</a>, but we understand if you don't have the time. If you want to listen to the podcast AND read these notes, you get a gold star! (Note: Gold stars have no monetary value, and are simply for showing the world that you're a totally awesome being.)</p> <p> </p> <p>Overall, we enjoyed <em>Mouse Guard</em>, with a few reservations. While we loved the world that it inhabits, and the stories that can be told within it, it is also mechanically dense. The game uses a simplified version of the Burning Wheel system, and the fact that this version of that system gave us this much trouble speaks volumes. There is a large amount of options to keep track of, and knowing when to use which stat is not always intuitive.</p> <p> </p> <p>Character creation is pleasingly streamlined, and does an excellent job of incorporating your character's background and personality into their statistics. We also loved the incorporation of a Belief and an instinct into character creation. They make for a helpful guide to roleplaying, and give you a benchmark to measure yourself against. However, some of us felt a bit restricted by the premise of the game; your character is by definition a mouse, and a member of the Mouse Guard. If you want to make a Chaotic Evil weasel, you're out of luck.</p> <p> </p> <p>Mechanically, <em>Mouse Guard</em> often frustrated us. The conflict system in particular, while unique, requires it's own special reference that is included on character sheets. The fact that all of the major decisions in conflict are made by one player can make the other players feel less engaged in the scene. Other mechanics, such as incorporating a character's Nature, required a flowchart to figure out when to roll the die, which stats to include, and if your character suffers a penalty.</p> <p> </p> <p>If you are worried that you wont understand the game because you have not read the comic books, don't be. The world of <em>Mouse Guard</em> is explained in depth in the sourcebook, and the concept of the game is simple enough for anybody to dive right in. What makes the game really stand out is the sense of scale, an important aspect of the comic that is beautifully translated into gameplay. In <em>Mouse Guard</em>, even something as simple as rainfall is an epic challenge, and just surviving in this world makes for compelling storytelling. No other game we have encountered does this so well.</p> <p> </p> <p>Overall, our experience with <em>Mouse Guard</em> was positive. We enjoyed making our characters, and having them interact with one another, and the world at large. On the other hand, we lost a lot of time referring to the book and reference sheets, in order to make sure we were playing the rules correctly. If you are a fan of rules-light systems like Fate, or Powered By The Apocalypse, <em>Mouse Guard</em> may not be for you. However, if you don't mind a bit of complexity, and want to play in a unique, fully realized universe, then we can recommend this game wholeheartedly. If you want to play <em>Mouse Guard</em>, it can be found on <a href= "https://www.amazon.com/Mouse-Guard-Roleplaying-Game-2nd/dp/1608867560"> Amazon</a>, and can also be found in many comic stores.</p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Welcome to our potluck for</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Monsters and Other Childish Things!</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">We all brought some foods from our childhood (which we ate BEFORE the recording this time) and hashed out what we thought about playing as our kids and their monstrous best friends, regarding both the mechanics and the flavor of the system.

Monsters and Other Childish Things Potluck Blog!
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Want to delve into</span> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Monsters and Other Childish Things</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">? Want to find out what it’s like to be a monster or a childish thing before you try the game out yourself? Check out our <a href= "http://tabletoppotluck.libsyn.com/maoct-potluck">potluck episode</a> where we talk in depth about all the mechanics and flavors contained in the game</span><em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">.</span></em> <span style= "font-weight: 400;">If you want the notes from the nerd in your class that sits in the front row, here they are.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">For the most part we enjoyed the system, and Charlotte says it’s her favorite game, so that should speak volumes. The very concept (children and their monsters dealing with day to day problems) was a huge plus for every player. We liked that character creation is so open-ended in interpretation as opposed to picking and choosing from a set of options, but it’s a double-edged sword because the number of choices can be paralyzing.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">While child creation is pretty simplistic, making a monster can be difficult until you start getting in-depth. Those rules just don’t seem intuitive at first glance and may confuse newer players. Creating a monster requires dividing dice amongst a set number of areas which can feel restricting, but then you have the freedom to decide what those areas are and what they do.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Playing both a monster and a child was entertaining, but us players found it difficult to divide our minds between RPing as two separate characters in the same scene. The rules do give you an option to have the GM play every monster if you prefer, but of course there are pros and cons to either approach. Even with the brain-stretching, the chaos of 5 people speaking for 10 characters lent to some great moments. However, since the monsters we were playing were not our own, some of us were self-conscious about living up to each other’s expectations, even if those fears were unfounded.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">When it comes to skills, both for social interactions and combat, dice rolls can be frustrating. You may feel giddy with power jangling ten dice and getting a resounding success (or you’re Marquez and you hate it), but the length times width method and the discrepancy between the order you call your shots and the actual turn order means that your move might be wasted entirely. Additionally, we found that time-honored “boss fights” don’t work well with this system; if you sic five players on one enemy and don’t jailbreak that enemy’s stats to be more of a threat than the rules allow, that boss is going to get creamed. Combat didn’t feel threatening enough as a result, but the game is more about character interaction than kaiju fights anyway.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Overall we love the concept of the game; children are agents of chaos, and for better or for worse, your monsters are your best friends and they’re here to back you up. Most of us would play the system again, so if you’re interested in seeing more from our characters, let us know! High on flavor, with a few hiccups in mechanics,</span> <em><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Monsters and Other Childish Things</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">is worth checking out.

7th Sea Potluck Blog!
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Interested in playing 7th Sea? Want to get the Tabletop Potluck squad’s takes on the game before you do? Good thing we’ve got <a href= "http://tabletoppotluck.libsyn.com/7th-sea-episode-six-potluck">a whole episode of TTPL where we all yell about what we thought</a>! If you just want the crib notes, though, here they are. Again, we used the free online rule set and not the full book, so that’s all we’re discussing here.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We had a blast playing 7th Sea and would play it again in a heartbeat. The rulebook gives you plenty of scene-setting and mechanic guidelines and then hands you the reins to craft whatever kind of story you want within that. The character creation system has some neat quirks that get you thinking about possible conflicts your character might face before you’ve even touched the dice. Plus, the intricacy of Villain creation and handling makes them really juicy characters and formidable opponents, not just garden-variety bosses you have to plow through.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The worldbuilding is fun, but it’s just so darn easy to tease John Wick about how a lot of the game’s historical figures, events, and concepts are really just thinly veiled references to real life history. Still, each of the countries are distinct and flavorful and come with their own pros and cons to playing as a citizen of that country. We just wish we could have worked with some non-European countries. It’s great that John Wick Presents released free rules at all, and we wish more companies would do the same, but it’s pretty darn disappointing that they don’t include a single one of the Asian, African, or New World inspired countries.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The way the rules are written is tough to understand right away, but once you get into it, they’re much more intuitive. If you’re new to tabletop RPGs, 7th Sea might not be the best choice, unless you have a couple more experienced players to help folks put the pieces together. A lot of the mechanics are designed for players to delve into across a longer campaign, so a single session might not feel very satisfying.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">All in all, the folks at Tabletop Potluck highly recommend 7th Sea. Check out the free rules <a href= "http://johnwickpresents.com/7th-sea-basic-rules/">here</a>, or purchase the full rulebooks <a href= "http://johnwickpresents.com/product/7th-sea-second-edition-core-rulebook/"> here</a>. And if you’d like to catch more of the One-Sided Die crew and company, never fear, because we’ll definitely be returning to this campaign. In the meantime stay tuned for our Monsters and Other Childish Things session!</span></p>


7th Sea Episode Six: Potluck!

And also a bunch of gross chewing sounds. You live and you learn. This is where we discuss what we thought of 7th Sea as an RPG system! </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">For a quick summary, check out our blog at <a href= "tabletoppotluck.libsyn.com">tabletoppotluck.libsyn.com</a>.
