Being Top Of Your Game

Being Top Of Your Game

2019-07-1300:32:33

Today I want to take a look at the stories we tell ourselves and the dialogue we have with others. I want to explore whether its possible to overcome the general sense that I frequently have of being just a little bit crap at gaming. To help, we’re going to take a dive into the psychology of experience and see how many points we can pick up. In this final episode of Season 3 we're going off on one about positive psychology!Show Contact Details:Voice Message Me: anchor.fm/rpgrescue/messageEmail Me: hello@rpgrescue.comMeWe Page: mewe.com/page/5c077833bce33a3fe7dd7f04 (or search "Roleplay Rescue")Facebook Page: facebook.com/roleplayrescue/ (or search "Roleplay Rescue")Patreon: patreon.com/rpgrescueRoleplay Rescue Quicklink: rpgrescue.com
Hello and welcome to this Roleplay Rescue special bonus episode on the topic of gaming with teenagers. This episode is brought to you by the generous support of the Roleplay Rescue Patrons over on Patreon.com/rpgrescue. We recently hit another Patreon goal and this bonus episode is being made by way of a thank you. It’s very much a conversation aimed at adults, so I’d like to apologise up front to any actual young adults listening to the podcast whom I accidentally end up offending.

Following the first official complaint, I've decided this is to be the last GM's Journal for a while. I've compiled this week's ramblings as usual but, well... you know the drill. It's raw, rough, and all pretty much a mess of random thoughts. Enjoy!
Three Good Adventure Games

Three Good Adventure Games

2019-07-0600:24:14

I don’t know why I keep collecting RPGs but I think it’s probably something that most gamers indulge in. Even if you’re not gaming, owning and reading gorgeous books is a big part of the hobby. Other than Dungeons & Dragons, what other great adventure games should we consider playing? In Season 2, I did an episode asking that same question and shared my thoughts on five games that have had a big impact on me over the last 35 or so years. As that went down quite well, I’ve decided to share my thoughts on three more games that I believe are very much worthy of your attention.Useful Links:Game #1: chaosium.com/basic-roleplaying/Game #2: trolllord.com/tlgstore/#!/Amazing-Adventures/c/11639154/Game #3: necroticgnome.com/collections/old-school-essentialsShow Contact Details:Voice Message Me: anchor.fm/rpgrescue/messageEmail Me: hello@rpgrescue.comMeWe Page: mewe.com/page/5c077833bce33a3fe7dd7f04 (or search "Roleplay Rescue")Facebook Page: facebook.com/roleplayrescue/ (or search "Roleplay Rescue")Patreon: patreon.com/rpgrescueRoleplay Rescue Quicklink: rpgrescue.com
Another mash-up of personal Gamemastering journal entries and awesome call-ins from across the community. This has been one of the hardest weeks of the year so far but also one in which I think I got the most gaming. As ever, it's raw and rough stuff so you have been warned!If you want to read the solo game report from Sunday, find it here: ubiquitousrat.net/?p=5047
Building Sandboxes

Building Sandboxes

2019-06-2900:32:31

Today’s episode builds on my earlier discussions about building a dungeon adventure and generally about getting started as a GM. To keep things simple, I’m going to assume we are building a fantasy roleplaying experience - largely because that’s the most popular genre out there. Along the way, I hope to begin to touch on how building a sandbox goes a long way towards pulling together all the theory on game structures and how to make life easy as a GM long-term.Useful Links:Alexander Macris, “Arbiter of Worlds”: amazon.co.uk/Arbiter-Worlds-Gamemasters-Alexander-MacrisThe Angry GM, "Game Angry": theangrygm.com/gameangryD&D 1983 Expert Set: drivethrurpg.com/product/116581/Dungeons--Dragons-Expert-Set-Rulebook-BECMI-ed-BasicOld-School Essentials by Necrotic Gnome: necroticgnome.com/collections/old-school-essentialsTim Shorts of Gothridge Manor: gothridgemanor.com Show Contact Details:Voice Message Me: anchor.fm/rpgrescue/messageEmail Me: hello@rpgrescue.comMeWe Page: mewe.com/page/5c077833bce33a3fe7dd7f04 (or search "Roleplay Rescue")Facebook Page: facebook.com/roleplayrescue/ (or search "Roleplay Rescue")Patreon: patreon.com/rpgrescueRoleplay Rescue Quicklink: rpgrescue.com

Witterings, call-ins and replies, and more ramblings from my addled GM brain. As ever, it's another selection of audio journal entries from my own gaming experience. Listen at your peril!
I talked about Savage Worlds back in Season 2, Episode 6 when I spoke about Five Games that I’d recommend everyone at least take a good look at. With my recent focus on creating a multi-genre campaign, something which I believe Savage Worlds would excel at delivering, I decided to talk to someone whose been not just using the game but also writing for it.Frank Turfler been playing tabletop RPGs for at least 35 years and is the voice behind Frank T’s Liner Notes, an Anchor podcast in which he shares what he’s up to with Print and Paste Tabletop Terrain, Techniques, Theory, and other things Tabletop RPG related. Frank creates modular tile-sets that can be printed and assembled in just about any configuration to match the encounter you need, and he releases these through his Patreon. Frank also offers his work through DriveThruRPG under the Middle Kingdoms Adventure & Trading Company. A percentage of all proceeds from his titles goes to the Phoenix Children's Hospital Foundation, which has care centers all across Arizona, USA. Useful Links:Frank T's Liner Notes: anchor.fm/FrankTFrank T's Patreon: patreon.com/FrankTSavage Worlds: peginc.com/product-category/savage-worlds Show Contact Details:Voice Message Me: anchor.fm/rpgrescue/messageEmail Me: hello@rpgrescue.comMeWe Page: mewe.com/page/5c077833bce33a3fe7dd7f04 (or search "Roleplay Rescue")Facebook Page: facebook.com/roleplayrescue/ (or search "Roleplay Rescue")Patreon: patreon.com/rpgrescueRoleplay Rescue Quicklink: rpgrescue.com

GM's Journal #18

2019-06-1900:34:54

This is the second instalment of GM's Journal this week in which I dribble on about Arcana Gravitas, get a couple more call-ins, and then begin to work out how to get started with writing that genre-bending multi-setting campaign idea. Following advice from Evil Jeff, I figure out which generic and universal roleplaying game I'd like to use and set to. There's even a little bit of self-play going on... if that doesn't sound too dodgy.

GM's Journal #17

2019-06-1600:31:20

This one's a bonus bonus episode, so to speak. I rambled on quite a bit over the past few days and was afraid that the next Journal would end up being too long. Given that I was racking up a few good call-ins too, I decided to throw together the next instalment of the Journal early. With luck, you'll enjoy the content and I'll still have enough for a regular episode later in the week too. Game on!
