Powergaming with Deuce – Ep107

Powergaming with Deuce – Ep107

Beware the man on the left. He will ruin your game. His Wookiee companion, however can be trusted.

One of our favorite people is Deuce (Eric’s brother-in-law Eric). The reason he is a favorite is that Deuce is a powergamer. We like to think of ourselves as powergamers (at times), but compared to Deuce we are hyper-immersive method actors.

We talk about some of Deuce’s best power-built characters and the games that promoted their creation.

Playing the Monsters – Ep81

Playing the Monsters – Ep81

A game of intense social interaction and kicking some ass.

Players playing monsters used to be a DM’s nightmare. Then came games like Vampire the Masquerade and Werewolf the Apocalypse, where you could do just that and redefined the horror genre of gaming forever.

Now, twenty years later, people are still playing the monsters and loving it.

Werewolf the Apocalypse 20th anniversary Kickstarter can be found here.

NPCs – Ep34

Every Epic Tale Needs a Strong Supporting Cast

The Non-Player Character, next a good plot, probably the most important aspect of a game. With strong NPCs a good game can become a great game.

 

This episode we  talk about memorable NPCs and what made them memorable. We also touch on the process of making an NPC memorable.
