As part of this expansion, Visionary has announcedDeadlands-focused partnerships with IDW Publishing, which will be publishing the first trade,Dead Man’s Hand, in March of 2015, and Tor Books, which will be publishing a line of prose novels coming later next year.
Dead Man’s Hand collects Deadlands one-shots published by Visionary and Image Comics, and features a stunning list of talent: David Gallaher, Steve Ellis, Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, Lee Moder, Ron Marz, Bart Sears, Jeff Mariotte, Brook Turner, and Michael Atiyeh. The comics were called “All-Star Westerns” by the media, and the full collection has been much anticipated.
We FINALLY get to Elysium! Jeff wants to give us a LOT of complications. Jack plays the boyscout… sort of. The guards have had too much coffee. Basil downloads. And Tom gets a nasty surprise…. but it’s one he earned.
We are back with the Amped Up game! The crew had been given Amps that “fixed” various problems they had. Everyone had woken up from the implant surgery to missing medical personnel and dead bodies. And THEN they were attacked by anti-amped bigots. They ventured outside of the clinic to MORE bigotry and ended up with one clue… Elysium.
So now you are caught up. In this episode, Tony looks up his cousin. Tom burgles and ends up with something fun. Fast Jack gets brutal, and we find out where Elysium is. And Joe tells us we crossed a line.
Todd wanted to do a wrap up episode after GenCon… and well.. this is it. I promise… next week is a return to gaming and the Amped Fate game!
It’s our GenCon Special Interview episode. GenCOn 2014 was a great convention. We played some great games and some not so great. It was a fantastic time and I can’t wait for next year. Here is a collection of interviews from some fun booths in the Exhibitor’s Hall. And here are all the links….
Here you go! This is part two the Raid The Lightning game set in the world of Nova Praxis. Jeff didn’t want me to release it until he and Todd finished running the games at GenCon. We hope you enjoy this little look into creating a game for a convention.
This the game Jeff and Todd put together to run for Origins and GenCon this year. It’s a play test using incomplete rules and so it’s not our usual story game. But we thought you would like to listen an example of how to put together a short game for a convention. The game is based in the Nova Praxis setting in anticipation of the Savage World rules set. Part two will arrive on Saturday. If you are in Indianapolis at GenCon, look for us. On Saturday we will be wearing the red RooSackGamer logo shirts. Find us. We will be handing out dice.
I know I said the next episode would be Jeff’s Savage Nova Praxis game. But Jeff doesn’t want it to go out before GenCon. So we have something special for you. It is a one shot from those fine game publishers at Bully Pulpit Games. Carolina Death Crawl is similar to Fiasco but it uses cards and is more narrowly focused. Sit back. Pour yourself a nice bourbon. And Enjoy.
Oh.. if you want to buy the game:
Jeff, Doug, Eric and Roy get together for a final Fallout: Louisville Session. The games were recorded a year ago and we stopped recording before the game finished. So, the guys prod their feeble brains to fill out the story let you, the loyal listeners, know how it ended.
Oh.. and the Archive is screwed up. Roy is working to get it back up an running as soon as possible. Thanks to listener Ralph for letting me know about the problem.
I was pretty negative about the Starter Box in the podcast review. Looks like I’m not the only. John Dodd has a pretty good comparison of the DnD Starter Box with the Pathfinder one.
His is a more complete comparison of the two offerings than anything I said. I still feel the adventure is a great part of the WotC box set, but it really isn’t a great total package.
