Episode 133: Rogues: Smugglers

In this installment of Rogues, we discuss the criminal underworld’s UPS drivers: smugglers. But you won’t see Harrison Ford, Johnny Depp, Nathan Fillion and Pam Grier caught dead in any unflattering brown uniforms. Or that van. And they probably would never ask anyone to sign for a package. Okay, the analogy is breaking down.

Actual Play: Monsterhearts

The evil Elder Gods of Real Life have raised their tentacled heads again, making recording and editing a regular episode for this week problematic. Instead, we’re bringing you the next part of our Monsterhearts game, being MCed for us by Chris. If you haven’t done so already, please check out part one where we introduce the characters and give a recap of what’s happened in the story so far.

Please be aware that this episode is largely uncut and unedited, and contains both adult language and adult situations. Listener discretion is advised.

Actual Play: Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Civil War

The United States Government has passed the Superhuman Registration Act. Iron Man heads the movement to register everyone with powers or abilities. Captain America is the rallying figure for the resistance forces opposed to government control. Whose side are you on?

As mentioned in our previous episode, we’re putting up the end of our Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Civil War session as an actual play. Namor (or is that Numenor, or Numinera? Played by Chris) along with Doctor Strange (played by Wayne), join Captain America, Hercules, and the Invisible Woman to face off against Iron Man and a group of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents (played by Lyal as the Watcher).

Actual Play: Monsterhearts

So a Ghoul, a Ghost, and a Frankenstein’s monster walk into a high school classroom…

No, seriously. With Lyal unable to record this week due to a lost voice (imagine that), we’re bringing you another Idle Red Hands first: an actual play of Joe McDaldno’s Monsterhearts game, which is being MCed for us by Chris. This is actually our third session of the game, though we recap the previous session’s events to bring both our new player, Alan, and our listeners up to speed on what’s happened in the story so far.

As we have a new player joining us (and a few regular players with short memories), we do go over some of the game’s rules and mechanics. Though not in any coherent way. This recording isn’t meant to teach people how to play Monsterhearts; it’s more of an example of what happens during a session of the game. If you’d like to though, you can download the Player Reference Sheet and MC Reference Sheet to follow along with what’s going on behind the scenes.

Please be aware that this episode is largely uncut and unedited, and contains both adult language and adult situations. Listener discretion is advised.

And as promised, here are our awesome character portraits:
