A few weeks back I got some rather moving call-in messages from my good friend, Arlen Walker. He was calling about Episode 503 and had clearly been strongly affected. I passed his messages along to another good friend of mine, Paris Conte, who then recorded a reply. Both these chaps have already heard this stuff but they agreed it was ok to share it publically too. I hope it's of some interest to others in the community. Game on!

Some months ago, Andy Goodman (Expedition to The Grizzly Peaks) called in and made an interesting comment right at the end of his message. You can hear this comment replayed at the top of this bonus episode. Andy and I hopped onto Zoom, some weeks ago now, and had a chat about his comment and also his experiences in playing Tales from The Loop. The recording was rough but, with the help of the editing wizardry of Minion Bravo and Evil Jeff (Minions and Musings), we present to you now that very conversation. I'm not sure whether there's gold in here, but I sure enjoyed chatting to Andy and I am eternally grateful to Minion Bravo for the hours he put in editing it into shape. Enjoy!

703 Vox Populi

703 Vox Populi

2020-08-0132:38

There have been so many excellent call-ins from listeners that I felt we were overdue for an episode to collect and respond to them. Thus, let the Vox Populi be heard! It's one of the best features of Anchor that we can do this. Thank you to all of today’s callers - Safer, Frank, Jason, Arlen, Menion, Spencer, and Andy. Game on!

This is the second part of the first Dungeon Master’s Diary of Season 7. These episodes feature me, a microphone, and whatever gaming-related nonsense flows from my mind. It's recorded in short(ish) snippets throughout the week and then roughly edited together to form a diary of one man’s journey in gaming, shared on a bi-weekly basis. It’s raw, glaringly personal, and not everyone’s cup of tea. Included in roughly chronological order of receipt are call-ins from community members commenting on past episodes, to which I generally try to respond. There was so much content and so many lovely call-ins that,  in this first episode, I have split the episode into two parts. The first part was released yesterday. I hope you won't mind. Thanks to Menion AKA Rob for the call-in. Game on!

Daniel Jones is a self-confessed IT nerd and the man behind the Eudaimonic Geekery blog, musing on the Art of RPGs. He describes himself as an Idea-Tinkerer, sharing an interest in writing and philosophy. Daniel hails from forest-filled southern Indiana where he is working on his Primaeval Fantasy RPG. This is my second conversation with Daniel on the topic of what he terms Otherworld-immersion and this time we delve into the how of reaching this goal. Many thanks to Daniel for agreeing to come and talk to me again. Game on! Thanks also to Paris Conte for the call-in.

Welcome to the first “Webster Burbles About Gaming” episode of Season 7. As promised from the trailer, this episode delivers on the claim that - from time to time - I will have some thoughts and be totally unable to keep them inside. Today I want to highlight and respond to the fact that, as it turns out, I am a pretty lousy communicator. I am also going to share some rather intriguing thoughts about the intersection of WHY we might choose to play with WHAT we might be getting out of the game when we judge it to be “good”. On top of that, I have a truck load of awesome call-ins which I have placed at the back end of the show, allowing those of you who want to get to the meat of the episode to do so quickly while also allowing those of you who enjoy the back-and-forth from the community to get your fix too. Thank you to all of today’s callers - Tim, Jason, Goblin’s Henchman, Arlen, and Andy. Game on!

This is Season Seven, Episode Zero. Roleplay Rescue has been around for a while now and has a large back catalogue of episodes ripe for the eating. In this episode, I want to do two things: I want to talk about the birth and genesis of Season 7. I also want to evolve the purpose of our podcast.  Thanks to Frank Turfler, Gavyn Upham, and Arlen Walker for the call-ins. Game on!

This is the last Dungeon Master’s Diary of Season 6. Usually the DMD is a Wednesday bonus episode and features me, a microphone, and whatever gaming-related nonsense flows from my mind. This is recorded in short snippets throughout the week and then roughly edited together to form a diary of one man’s  journey in gaming, shared week-by-week. It’s raw, glaringly personal, and not everyone’s cup of tea. Going forward, the DMD will become a bi-weekly journal and move to a Saturday. It seemed appropriate to let you know. Hope you don't mind.

Herein lies an important announcement! For starters, this is the end of Season Six. But there's more to tell you... Today's episode is an off-the-cuff round-up of just some of the call-ins I have received following the release of my interview with Daniel Jones on Otherworld Immersion. The response has been overwhelming and I am just presenting part of the larger picture. Big thanks today to all the callers: Andy Goodman, Arlen Walker, Evil Jeff, Tim Shorts, Jason Connerley, and Barney. Thanks also to my special guest caller, Daniel Jones himself. What more can I say? This is the end. But I hope it's not The End.  Game on!

This episode we are joined by my good Anchorite friend and fellow podcaster, Dave Aldridge of the dpercentile podcast. This episode claims a few firsts on Roleplay Rescue, being the first interview recorded using Zoom and also the first interview which is being shared in two parts. The focus of this first part is upon Dave’s experiences with Numenera and why he considers it a great game from which to learn a more freeform style of play. The second part, in which we discuss what Numenera has taught him as a GM, will be released on Dave’s own podcast, dpercentile. It is in the spirit of collaboration that we bring you this conversation that I think we both enjoyed sharing.  Many thanks to Dave for agreeing to do this with me! dpercentile on Anchor.fm: anchor.fm/dave-aldridge dpercentile on Apple podcasts: podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/dpercentile/id1465464879 Roleplay Rescue Theme Song and incidental music by TJ Drennon: patreon.com/TJD Contact Details: Voice Message: anchor.fm/rpgrescue/message Email: hello@rpgrescue.com Patreon: patreon.com/rpgrescue Blog: roleplayrescue.com MeWe Group: mewe.com/join/roleplayrescue (or search "Roleplay Rescue") Facebook Page: facebook.com/roleplayrescue (or search "Roleplay Rescue") Twitter: @ubiquitousrat

Daniel Jones is a self-confessed IT nerd and the man behind the Eudaimonic Geekery blog, musing on the Art of RPGs. He describes himself as an Idea-Tinkerer, sharing an interest in writing and philosophy with far more followers than I could dream of - probably because he’s a published novelist (aka Daniel Ionson). Daniel hails from forest-filled southern Indiana where he is working on his beloved Primaeval Fantasy RPG. Many thanks to Daniel for agreeing to come and talk to me about Otherworld Immersion - a concept and phrase I fully intend to steal from him. Game on!

Time to catch up on the call-ins and share the amazingly supportive words shared by listeners from around the world. I also talk briefly about the direction the show has taken recently, my worries about too many long interview episodes, and the decision to simply roll with it. These are tough times but I am immensely grateful to all the great folk who have given their time to talk to Roleplay Rescue. Thank you to you too - the listener - for tuning in one more time. Game on! Thanks to Colin Green, Lonely Adventurer, Menion aka Rob, Josh Beckelheimer, and John from Tale of the Manticore - great stuff!

This is the second in a new approach to interviews in which I aim to talk to roleplaying game activists about games that I am personally less familiar with. Joe Richter is perhaps best known for the Weal or Woe podcast, the world’s first unfiltered, real-play, Pathfinder Second Edition Playtest homebrew campaign, played around a real table of friends. He’s also the creator of the Hindsightless podcast and a regular caller to this show. Joe lives someplace windy and rainy up in America and he is prone to swearing. That said, he did avoid making this interview the first ever Roleplay Rescue to carry a warning notice. Huge thanks to Joe for coming on the show!  Weal or Woe: wealorwoe.com  Hindsightless: anchor.fm/joe-richter9  Pathfinder SRD (Free Rules): d20pfsrd.com  Roleplay Rescue Theme Song and incidental music by TJ Drennon: patreon.com/TJD  Contact Details:  Voice Message: anchor.fm/rpgrescue/message  Email: hello@rpgrescue.com  Patreon: patreon.com/rpgrescue  Blog: roleplayrescue.com  MeWe Group: mewe.com/join/roleplayrescue (or search "Roleplay Rescue")  Facebook Page: facebook.com/roleplayrescue (or search "Roleplay Rescue")  Twitter: @ubiquitousrat
