Episode 42 – Building Character

This is November 2017’s Episode. This month we talk about our favorite Character Building subsystems within various RPGs. We ask ourselves (and each other) the tough questions and take a few small walks down Memory Lane.

This episode was recorded on 11/20/2017 using Mumble and edited in Audacity. There is a little bit of a quality issue with some weird pops and noises around Monica’s and Steve’s mics 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.

Don’t forget to check out our 1d4cast Actual Play Episodes in iTunes, they are on a separate feed. Hoping to add more AP content soon.

Thank you for listening! We hope you enjoy.

A Closer Look At… Skill Use

Here is a new ACLS episode where we tackle how different systems use skills. This is not a comprehensive list of systems, but it is a very diverse one, covering both traditional games and indie games. It’s always interesting to see not only how the use of skills evolve through editions but between games as well.

Also, we have some news to share and we apologize if there is any interruption to the feed.

Episode 9: By Sigmar’s Hammer

*Warning – Explicit*

Hello everyone! This is a late release for October. This is a long episode and I had a lot of audio issues with my microphone, so I apologize in advanced for how awful I sound. This show is all about Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (also know of WFRP) the 2nd Edition. It’s a game that we have all played together here and there, but especially back in college.

Hope you enjoy!
