As some of you may have heard, my computer died and I lost all my saved files and recording programs. Luckily I was able to find a copy of the raw file of the first session with the new group. So that is what I am going to be posting here, the raw uncut recording of our session.
What this also means is that I am currently unaware of when I will be able to get Geek the Mage back up and running. I will definitely keep people in the loop as I struggle to make up for the shit storm that was the first two months of 2016.
The second half of my talk with the wonderful Ray Rigel. We continue talking about the GM life and the little tips and tricks that we use when we run games.
So this is the second installment of a little feature called Table Talk where I sit down with someone tied into Shadowrun and we talk about the game. This time around we have the awesome Ray Rigel and we talk about a little bit of everything.
And here it is, the last episode featuring Mako, Ruby and Tecumse. It was a blast and the group certainly went out with a bang. We are going to have an interview with a special guest for the next two episodes before jumping back into the actual play with a new group of runners.
Edit: I have re-uploaded the episode which has the audio problems fixed…or at least I hope so lol.
In this episode we get closer to the end of group 2 as they delve further into the BTL den after hearing the gun shots sounding off above. Climbing floor by floor the group is on high alert, or at least their level of high alert.
So during the long break I have had with this game due to work, I have come to the conclusion that I would like to continue it as an actual play podcast but throw in more interviews. With that being said, the group I had for the game has moved on to something new and thus I need a new group of runners to delve through the mean streets of Neo-Tokyo. So here is where you guys can get in on the action. Before I start looking my normal ways I figured I would give the listeners a chance to be part of the team. So with that said, here is the important info you will need.
- We would be playing on Sundays (am thinking once a month due to work and stuff but it could be bi-weekly).
- The time is still up in the air but I would prefer to start between 7-9 pm EST as any earlier and my job could interfere.
- As this is a podcast game you must have a decent mic and can assure that there is little to no background noise. The occasional car going by is alright but constant barking, screaming, blaring music/tv is not.
- Be reliable. Listen, I know how work and life can get in the way sometimes but with the game looking to start off as potentially a monthly thing I want people that can commit to attending.
- Someone that is a team player. Listen I know that we all want to be the star but in this type of game / media, that really doesn’t work out. Roleplaying focuses heavily on cooperation so you need to be able to do it.
- Experience is not really required. Seeing as the game started out as one for beginners anyways I am totally cool with people that are new to the game. New to roleplaying in general might be a tough sell given the whole podcast part but as long as you are creative and aren’t shy even that shouldn’t be a problem. While I am not expressly looking for voice actors or people like that, they certainly are preferred.😀
- We use skype in order to bring our lovely voices to the game. The recorder I have (which is amazing) works for skype only. I don’t like fixing things if it isn’t broken so please don’t message me trying to get me to use something else.
- Lastly, is the Wheaton rule: Don’t be a dick.
If you think that you could meet the above and bring a love for the setting to the table then apply. You can do that by sending a message to the facebook group (I think that’s a thing you can do) or send me a direct message on twitter. I’m @PhistoRoboto. You can also send me a message on here. Now it should be mentioned that just because you apply it doesn’t mean you are automatically in the group. I always have a little meet and greet with potential players so that the both of us can get a feel for one another. My games/styles aren’t for everyone and not everyone will mesh well with what I am running. In order to prevent people from dropping mid game or merely not working out I like to try and get a feel for them.
Hope to hear from people!
Our team investigates the night club looking for their target as we learn just how skilled Ruby is at her trade. While looking for Matty they stumble upon something most beneficial while Mako and Tecumseh get a small gif(t).
