Mouse Guard 2nd Ed. Actual Play Series – 1d4Con 2017 Playtest

This was recorded right before 1d4Con 2017. This is the Playtest of the Scenario James ran at the convention. He recruited David and Marian to play and Marian brought Derek along with her.

**Note** – Mouse Guard is a front heavy system in terms of mechanical crunchiness. This games was a learning exercise and it not played 100% correctly according to the book.

The recorded game itself has a running time of about 2 hours and 30 minutes after the long pauses had been removed. Then we discuss things that we noticed or questioned about the game for about 15 minutes afterwards.

Here is the cast:

GM – James Winfield

Kenzie – David Havelka
Saxon – Marian McBrine
Lieam – Derek Guder

If you are following the Vampire V20 game, it is on hiatus until after the major convention season. It should start back up in September or October. In the meantime, we are planning to release a couple of other one-shot APs of various systems until then.

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.

Anyway, this month we talk about 1d4Con Past, Present, and Future. We cover how our games went, what ideas worked as well as what didn’t, and some plans for the future! We have our full regular cast along with guests Andy and Henry.

No Rest For the Wicked Actual Play – Part Deux

Here is April’s episode. One last in before 1d4Con. Hope to see you there!

It’s a short actual play of Monica’s Apocalypse World hack, called “No Rest For The Wicked”. Joining us this time is Monica who was voluntold to MC for us, Steve, Katie (Dirtskirt) and James.

This is our 6th non-campaign AP episode and is Steve or James’ second go around with the system; however, it is Katie’s first time with a *World game. If you know anything about us, hilarity and mishap definitely ensue… This is a really short episode. We recreate history between the James and Steve’s characters and add Katie’s to the mix. This is sort of a weird sequel to the first game, but enjoyable nevertheless.

MC – Monica

Players:
– Steve as the Soldier (Leo)
– James as the Mechromancer (Turing)
– Katie as the Gunzerker (Snuggles)
