Improv in Role Playing Games

Most people probably don’t listen to as many podcasts about RPG’s as I do. But if you’ve even watched Critical Role or found a podcast you like, they might talk about how they are using improv techniques or how improv has made them a better […]

TableTopTakes: Dragon Age RPG

TableTopTakes: Dragon Age RPG

First, let me say that this game review is going to be different than the standard board game review. Dragon Age RPG is very much a pen and paper RPG and does not have a board, cards, etc. However, it is a “table top” game, […]

Nerdologists Present: The Trilogies Tatooine Troubles Part 2 Pod Racing

As I’ve been teasing for a little bit, we are doing Star Wars trilogies. Using the Star Wars RPG system created by Fantasy Flight Games. So this is the first part of the Trilogy of Tatooine Troubles where we have a group of Bounty Hunters taking on a mission. Jason, Scott, and Sam (who did a guest article on Magic the Gathering back a while) were the players this time around.

First, I would like to apologize for the audio, it isn’t good. It’s actually very unacceptable. With new players, I turned their mics up higher knowing that they wouldn’t be as on top of them as we’ve gotten for Dungeons and Flagons. However, doing that, we ended up picking up a buzzing noise. I’m not sure if it was a projector that was running on the ceiling on the floor below that was causing enough of a vibration or a large Windows update that caused the issues, but there is buzzing in the background throughout the whole thing. I was able to remove it from a chunk of it, but where it was the loudest, there wasn’t much I could do without ruining the audio for our voices. I also then had to adjust the audio so that the volume of all the players would be a bit closer to mine, since I’m used to being on a mic now. So the audio quality is bad, I’d recommend listening to it with headphones as that was the best quality I got was when I was using my headphones and the audio gets worse as it goes as the buzzing noise gets louder.

With all of that disclaimer in the front, Tatooine, shortly after Episode 3, the Empire is gaining ground and they are always looking for the smartest and brightest. Our heroes haven’t been affected by that though as they Bounty Hunt on Tatooine, looking to make a payday, get a bigger score, get free drink tickets and as many chance cubes as they can. They are approached by a damsel in distress and their adventure begins….

One of the great gaming systems Peder and I got to try out at AcadeCon (and the last to talk about in our lineup!) was one that we’ve been wanting to try for quite a while – Star Wars: Age of Rebellion! Really, we were looking […]

AcadeCon Round-Up: Looking Forward

So, Kristen is going to do a couple of write-ups on the game system that she played while I ran a con game, and then the Star Wars system, so I’m wrapping up with some advice on going to conventions that I’ve learned from this […]
