164 – re:play Dungeon Academy 10

The party continues into a labyrinth of the kobold lair, has to navigate using verbal description only, and gets into a dicey fight. Later that night, back in the real world, Saggitarius witnesses something that will have serious implications in the future.\

160 – re:play Clerics in the Vineyard 1

Daniel finally gets to run Dogs in the Vineyard, adapted to a familiar D&D setting. It’s teenage pseudomormon gunslingers, but with St. Cuthbert instead of Mormonism.

Tim and John have rolled up 5e clerics, and Daniel explains the few changes necessary to make D. Vincent Baker’s game of hard ethical judgments with potentially explosive consequences work when adapted to **the world’s most popular roleplaying game**. In this episode, we get through both initiation conflicts; when we pick back up, the clerics will hit their first town.

You can’t buy this game anymore. Apparently, Vincent considers the setting 🚨 t o o 🚑 p r o b l e m a t i c 🚨 (although you can still buy Poison’d and Kill Puppies for Satan 🤔🤔🤔, and we’d definitely recommend Poison’d).

(We could be wrong about the reason for its discontinuation; we could find relevant quotes but no still-functional original source.)

All the more reason to tune in next time to see more fully how DitV works when adapted to an in-print game. The game itself may be dead, but its spirit lives on.

After we play through the town, we’ll publish the town with Daniel’s conversion rules.

156 – Mothership – Finale of Dead Planet

We finish our run of our first proper sci-fi game, Mothership. Spoilers for the official module Dead Planet follow. Listen as it is revealed that Daniel still doesn’t know how space works and knows one and only one metric system equivalence. Does the party escape the dead planet or spectacularly TPK? Do we get the rules half right? Just click, nay, SMASH that play button and find out, dear listener.

Note that we did Stress totally wrong. The default Stress gained is 1, not 1d10. Not sure where Daniel got that …

Intro song by Goblins from Mars:

149 – re:play Dungeon Academy 9

Beard ASMR & Blood Pools. Got projector armbands. Got Patroclus to come with. Explored side paths then found a cave complex beneath the hill off the path. Found a smoky spirit of a student named Antolius. Then entered a labyrinth where they fought kobolds and giant albino lizards. Saggitarius broke through the kobold barricades, cut one down, then was rekt. Left off in dungeon.

144 – re:play Dungeon Academy 5

Back in that Dungeon Academy. What happens in this ep:

  • Espying a spider-man
  • resurrecting a skeletal smith
  • speaking with the spider-man
  • a dead alchemist holds a magic wand and magic hat and magic robes (+1 hp, help you hide against the night sky)
  • held up by bandits
  • the mechanical benefits of romance

Beyond the mossed and tumbled walls, the air convolves with inky swirls. Beneath the moons dance shimmering wisps. But on the road, beneath the looming trees, the night is dark and clear.
