Hey all! In November, I'm running three sessions of Jason Mills' Demigods PbtA Beta rules!

Life in college is exciting and interesting. Especially when you're dealing with being the scion of an ancient god alongside Chem Lab, Literature term papers, and Trigonometry assignments. Also, there's this really interesting mortal in the theater department, and somehow your fate seems to be spindled around them. That's new.

Demigods is a modern-day, magical-realism role-playing game in which all of the gods are real and every belief system is correct, at the same time. In this world all of the gods exist because humans imagined them into existence. So there are at least a dozen different sun gods for example, pushing, pulling, or being the sun, while at the same time the Earth is ninety-three million miles away from the giant fusion engine it revolves around. Multiple truths! All at once!

Demigods PbtA is currently in development by Jason Mills. I'll be using the Open Beta v2_1.01 version (unless there's an update before November!)

This session will be recorded.
Being able to attend all three sessions is ideal, but not required. You must RSVP to each session you wish to attend.

The X-Card safety tool will be on the table. For more information on the Gauntlet's safety tools, please refer to our Inclusivity Policy on the website (http://www.gauntlet-rpg.com/the-inclusivity-policy.html)

-hey friends, I'm starting a new campaign of Masks this Sunday and I need help streaming it on Twitch.- I got the help I needed, thanks!!!!!

I want to connect all the players through Google Hangouts Video.
I want to use roll20 for character sheets and die rolls and maps.
I have OBS.
I have a Twitch account.
I'm using Chrome for my browser.
I'm using a desktop computer with decent power.

Whenever I try to use OBS Window capture on a Google Hangout video window, it comes through as a black box.
What am I screwing up? What should I do differently?

I'm so excited to see Impulse Drive, by +Adrian Thoen, up on Kickstarter! I've had the pleasure of playing this game over Hangouts, over play-by-post, and at cons. It's been a thrill to see the game continually evolve to its current state.
I've played a bunch of PbtA games, and this is my favorite space RPG using the Apocalypse Engine.
It features:
- interesting playbooks with exciting subsystems to make each one a unique experience
- whereas other space-faring games take a broad "do anything" approach, Impulse Drive has a point of view, it's specifically designed to tell a certain type of story. A story I happen to love
- an intriguing stress and harm cycle for injury and damage that feeds into Calamities, which are major events in the PC's story
- solid and heavily tested designs that are intricate without being intrusive. You can engage on the level of mechanics that suits your group

I highly recommend this game. I've played 16 live sessions of it and nearly a year-long play-by-post. It's good.

Also, someone buy it so you can run it for me, ok? I've never gotten to play this sucker, I've always been the Space Master. :)

It's another episode where Rach and Rich answer questions from listeners about playing PbtA games

Time Codes:
1:06 - From +James Mullen : if the Moves I've picked from a playbook turn out to be sub-optimal for where the story is going, what should I do? Stick with them, ask the MC if I can select new Moves or ask the MC to shift the story so that I can use the Moves I've picked?
8:22 - From +David LaFreniere : How should players best facilitate their characters interacting in a hostile way? Follow up, how can the MC help facilitate or, if the game situation/system seems appropriate, encourage players to have their characters engage in hostile ways?
18:20 - From +Marc-Alexandre Dube : What materials could the player use to easily organize the information about the character. PbtA abstracts a lot of things, but most moves from most playbooks are a case of "specific over general". Which mean (you'd need to) memorize all the chosen playbook moves on top of the general moves (and the special moves).
27:41 - +Marshall Miller asked several questions!
28:03 - What are the best PbtA games for kids?
30:07 - Which are the best PbtA games for PbF?
33:10 - What's the best PbtA game for 1 player + 1 MC?
39:41 - What's the best PbtA game for a large group (e.g. 8+)?
