48 – Gen Con 2016: AT LAST the 5 min. RPGs!

Better late than never! Emily and I were both a bit under the weather this week, so we finally got around to the long awaited audio from our Gen Con five minute RPGs. We ran these games using Evil Hat’s It’s Not My Fault Cards. You can get more info about running them in the episode of Panda’s Talking Games where I talked about running them (http://misdirectedmark.com/talking-games-seventeen-short-form-games/) or in this handy dandy Gnome Stew article: http://www.gnomestew.com/game-mastering/its-not-the-size-that-counts-its-how-you-use-it/

39 – Royal Blood: The Chariot

Our players infiltrate Space X — can they claim the chariot without inverting? And who is really in control of this plan?

This episode is the conclusion to our Royal Blood run, and also includes the most major safety fail I’ve ever had at my table. In light of this, we edited the game together, but also included both some of the table chatter and an interview at the end to clarify what happened, how we failed to take appropriate action, and how we can be better in the future. Learn from our mistakes. Don’t worry — we’re all still friends.
