Idle Red Hands Weekly 039: Best of 2019 Part 2 – Call of Cthulhu, Battletech, Starter Sets, Ragnarok, Star Wars and Solo TTRPGs

Part two of our look back at 2019 and some looking ahead at 2020. This time with Lyal. We talk about Call of Cthulhu Starter Set, solo adventures and our upcoming series reviewing starter boxes for TTPRG systems new and old. The Ragnarok miniatures skirmish game gives us a use for all of those Blood Rage Vikings and monsters. Getting your kids into Star Wars and if the property is still kid-friendly as well as the future of the franchise resting on The Mandalorian. Delivery of Battletech, Trudvang Chronicles and Siege of the Citadel Kickstarters in 2020 (hopefully). Our missed chance to play War Room by Larry Harris over the holidays. #callofcthulhu #chaosium #battletech #ragnarok

Idle Red Hands weekly 037: Starfinder on Alexa, Werewolf Fifth Edition, Hope’s Last Day and Night of the Living Dead Zombicide

Amazon now lets you play the Starfinder RPG with Alexa simply by saying “Alexa, play Starfinder” and eventually paying for the privilege. Werewolf Fifth Edition is coming in 2021. Cool Mini or Not Kickstarted a Zombicide version of Night of the Living Dead. Just because. C’mon! We played the Hope’s Last Day cinematic adventure for the Alien RPG. Xenomorphs were deadly and company agents even more so. Chris is listening to more amazing audiobooks and posting Alien GIFs on Twitter. #alienrpg #freeleague #frialigan

Idle Red Hands Weekly 029: Homeworld TTRPG by Modiphius, Grim Dynasty for Village Attacks, Mercenaries, Spies and Private Eyes by Flying Buffaloe, Solo Adventures and Character Backstories

Lyal subs in for the now toothless Chris. Okinawa Comic-con happened. Modiphius is working on the Homeworld Revelations RPG based on the classic PC RTS game. Grimlord Games has a Kickstarter for Grim Dynasty, a Chinese-themed expansion for their Village Attacks boardgame. The new edition of Mercenaries, Spies and Private Eyes by Flying Buffaloe arrived and Lyal talks about solo adventures and the use of backstory for TTRPGs. We look to Good Bad Flicks on YouTube for RPG inspiration.

Video: Mutant: Mechatron – Rise of the Robots LONG Review

Another deep dive into an RPG where we have both read the book and played a few session. This time it is Mutant: Mechatron – Rise of the Robots by Free League. It uses their Year Zero Engine, d6 dice pool system, and although it is a stand-alone game your robots can play with characters in both Mutant Year Zero and Genlab, once they escape Mechatron-7. We give you an overview of the system, character creation and the setting. Also a discussion of the surprising challenge of playing self-aware robot player characters. If you are familiar with Mutant Year Zero this is a great new take on post-apocalyptic characters and if you are new to the system and setting, it is well worth your time. Find out if this game is for you as we dive deep into Mutant: Mechatron.

Video: Unboxing Star Trek Adventures Starter Set

We take a look at the Star Trek Adventures Starter Set by Modiphius. It includes pre-generated character sheets, a ship sheet, dice, tokens, maps, and a starting adventure campaign. It uses the 2d20 system with threat and momentum as currency mechanics for both players and the gamemaster. This is a much more accessible option for trying the game and will get you playing right out of the box.
