This episode was recorded on 4/10/2017 using G+ Hangouts and recorded by routing the sound through a mixer and into Audacity. There is a little bit of a quality issue with this episode as there are some weird pops and noises that I was unable to completely remove. We used Levelator to level and normalize the audio before editing in Audacity. This show has been minimally edited to remove a few gaps of silence and fix some quality issues here and there.

VtM V20 Actual Play Series – Baltimore in Darkness 02


Storyteller:

  • James

Players:

  • Marian (Bob Roberts – Ventrue
  • Davie (Morgan Mandrake – Nosferatu)
  • David (Willard Connelly – Tremere)
  • Wes (Tom Hebert – Nosferatu)
  • Christina (Madelene Cross-DuChance – Toreador)

*A note about the quality*: We used G+ Hangouts exclusively this time. Other than the occassional cut out or drop that usually comes with Hangouts, the only quality issue was Marian’s mic. It is hard to hear what she says some of the time and with her still having a cold, it didn’t help.

This episode is heavily edited to fix and cut out audible tech issues as well as coughing, long periods of silence, and other noise picked up by microphones.

The next episode is due to be recorded on April 8th.

This episode was recorded on 2/15/2016 using G+ Hangouts and recorded by routing the sound through a mixer and into Audacity. There is a quality issue with this episode as all of the voices are distorted. I was unable to fix this in post. We use Auphonic.com and Levelator to level and normalize the audio before editing in Audacity. This show has been minimally edited to remove a few gaps of silence and some quality issues.

VtM V20 Actual Play Series – Baltimore in Darkness 01

Hello everyone,

New year means new things. I (James) have started a new Actual Play campaign called Baltimore in Darkness which uses the Vampire: the Masquerade 20th Anniversary rules set.

Listening to Happy Jacks RPG Podcast’s Mote of Sin (V20 Actual Play) really inspired me to run one of my own. Thanks Stu!

*A note about the quality*: We started by using Roll20.net, which doesn’t have a mute option and most of our mics’ hardware mute switch didn’t seem to work. At about the 1 hour mark, Roll20 completely crapped out on us and we picked back up in G+ hangouts. Both Marian and I are sick and coughing a lot.

This episode is heavily edited to fix and cut out audible tech issues as well as coughing, but not all could be cut. So be warned, some parts are rough. I feel that the episode was ultimately listenable, so I’m releasing it.

More episodes should come every other week or so. Hopefully in better quality.
