127 – re:cap City of the Crepuscular Queen 5

Something a bit different this time. Daniel recaps the session with voiceover, cutting in clips of the actual play, and commenting on particular mechanico-structural elements. Let us know what you think.

126 – re:play City of the Crepuscular Queen 4

This ep is another example of a full mythic play-cycle: suffering in the world of humanity caused by evils within and/or without, leading to a journey to the underworld and mortal combat with its denizens, which are inimical to human interests and values, followed by the liberation of its secrets and wealth, with the protags returning to the world of humanity bearing sorrow, experience, boons, and, perhaps, an adumbration of the eschaton.

In other words, town problem > dungeon > town resolution.

This episode is also heavily choreographed in the fight(s). The game doesn’t have to play out this way, but I think everyone was into it. I know I like an intense and gorily choreographed monster fight, and that’s what you get.

125 – re:play City of the Crepuscular Queen 3/

A recap of last episode, and then the party engages Batman-mode when the cleric hears a terrible accusation against the local priest. Tragic backstory, magical investigations, barrow mounds, communing with darkness, and unexpected inquisition: THIS WEEK ON GG NO RE.
