MMP #136 – Dice Pools & Encoded Designs 2015

Dice Pools & Encoded Designs 2015

Hey Folks. Chris here to bring you another episode of the Misdirected Mark Podcast. This week we head over to the Gameroom, then make our way to the garage to chat about dice pools, go into the lab and give the lowdown on Encoded Designs 2015 and beyond plans, and finish up at the still empty geekery to talk about some TV shows we like.

Intro and some bumper music by Mike Willard – Solar Winds can be purchased here

Around the Bar #1

Hey Folks. So this is isn’t audio I’m hanging at the bar chatting up folks in the MMP house and getting all the information you can hopefully use to know about some of the things happening in the table top RPG gaming world.

So WotC announced they’re going to be running one or two storylines a year similar to the Rise of Tiamat storyline going on right now. Starting on March 17th we’re going to get a storyline about Elemental Evil The storyline adventure books are The Elemental Evil Adventurer’s Handbook and Princes of the Apocalypse, which will be produced by Sasquatch Game Studio. They had the Primeval Thule Swords & Sandals game and their team has Richard Baker, David Noonan, and Stephen Schubert who all have a very deep D&D background. I’m looking forward to seeing what they’ll bring out for the game.

To delve a little deeper The Elemental Evil Adventurer’s Handbook is a splat book with skills, abilities, spells, background, setting, and story information for the storyline. It’s gonna cost forty bucks. The Princes of the Apocalypse is a super adventure like Rise and Horde of the Dragon Queen. It’ll surround the machinations of four corrupt prophets of the Elder Elemental Eye. That means four dungeons for you to explore and four beat downs to give to these baddies. This can all be yours for fifty American dollars. I suggest if you’re running a gaming group with four players get everyone to chip in 10 bucks. It’s only fair after all.

Ok, enough D&D for now. On to Monte Cook Games who have announced they’re making a Cypher System Rule Book. The Cypher system is the engine which powers the Strange and Numenera. Monte and company have gotten so many requests to create games using the system in different settings they decided to give you the core kit with a bunch of tools to make your own cypher system game. I’m guessing this product will look a lot like Fate Core or The Cortex + Hackers Guide. This product will be out next summer which I’m guessing means GenCon.

http://www.montecookgames.com/announcing-the-cypher-system-rulebook/

Evil Hat’s Worlds of Adventure Patron project just keeps chugging along with the Aether Sea.  I could wax on about it but I think the Drive Thru description does a pretty good job of describing it:

One tiny ship.
One huge expanse of aetherspace.
Maneuver your ship through the vast aether in The Aether Sea, a Fate world and adventure by Ed Turner. A thousand years of war on Homeworld left it a magically-blighted wasteland, so the elves and dwarves stopped fighting for five minutes and figured out how to leave it behind. Soon everyone took to the vast, empty aether sea. The Royal Hegemony keeps a tight rein on the Spellcaster’s Union, and the magic that makes aether travel possible. Play the crew of a little aethercraft out in the deep sea. But you’ve got bad blood with the Royals, so take jobs carefully and make do with the best magic unofficial channels can provide. Keeping the ship afloat won’t be easy. The sea’s a dark and lonely place, and secondhand magic is… fussy. When it works at all.

The Aether Sea requires Fate Core or Fate Accelerated to play. This 44-page supplement contains:

* New species creation rules using Fate Accelerated style approaches.

* A simple, easy-to-use magic system, including systems for dabbling in magic, using cantrips for specific magical tasks, and spells and artifacts.

* Ideas for aethercraft, including aspects, combat, and maneuvering through space.

* A full starter adventure: It’s Only an Elven Moon.

The Aether Sea. Batten down the hatches and get ready for liftoff!

The Five Fires Hip Hop RPG is something I saw up on the Story Games news letter and it’s one of the more unique game idea’s I’ve ever come across. The designer, Quinn Murphy, wants to show the revolutionary and loving side of this music with this game. It’s in Beta right now and by following the link you can see some of the designers thoughts about the game and get your hands on the Beta.

http://www.thoughtcrimegames.net/five-fires-beta/

Dave Chalker, of Critical Hits fame and the designer of Get Bit, is working on an Ax and Star Trek inspired game with Strange New Worlds. I don’t think I need to say anymore than go check it out at the link below. I guess I could say some more. Chalker is an excellent writer and designer and I would strongly encourage you to take a look at this game, especially if your a fan of space exploration fiction and want a game that can help simulate that experience.

Kickstarter Stuff

To go along with the Cypher System stuff from above Outland Entertainment is about to and may be in the midst of running a Kickstarter called Shotguns & Sorcery based on Matt Forbeck’s series of the same name. I’m not familiar with the series but anything that is Fantasy Noir is right up my alley. The line up working on this game is also quite impressive with Rob Schwalb of Schwalb Entertainment and Shadow of the Demon Lord helping to integrate the Cypher System and the excellent Jeremy Mohler on for art. By the by he’s the guy behind Outland Entertainment. Learn more about the Kickstarter from the link below.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1124066364/363772394?token=f7eb6c0f

The Dracula Dossier is also kickstarting right now. It is an improvisational campaign for Nights Black Agents by Kenneth Hite using Robin Laws Gumshoe engine and it let the players be burnt spies facing off against the forces of a vampire conspiracy in all the spy thriller goodness you can imagine. The Dracula Dossier itself puts the famous or infamous Dracula at the center of this conspiracy as Bram Stokers novel is actually the redacted after action report of the first time the British government tried to acquire Dracula as an assets. Within the dossier is Stokers underacted and thrice annotated report from the times when Britian thought it might be a  good idea to try and use Dracula to solve their problems. Because using monsters to solve your problems always goes well.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1721105501/the-dracula-dossier?ref=nav_search

Friend computer is back with a new edition of Paranoia. If you’d like to have the newest version, and if you don’t want it I don’t think friend computer will find that acceptable, you can now go an back the classic dark humor dystopian RPG being re-released by Mongoose Publishing.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1990654819/paranoia-rpg?ref=category

Last but certainly not least is Erasable Gaming Paper. That’s right, if you’ve ever seen gaming paper at cons or your FLGS this is that but with a waxy surface that can be erased four or five times with dry erase markers before it should be tossed. Something I saw that I thought was kind of cool.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingpaper/gaming-paper-erasable?ref=category

Local

So there actually is one more kickstarter and it’s by Joe Loveric from Collectors Inn. This project is to allay some of the costs of acquiring more gaming room in the space above the shop. It used to be a dance studio, now its available, and Joe would like to turn it into a space for people to play and for him to expand his store. There’s some cool rewards and I hope you click on the link and check it out.

Last Thing

Last thing and as of this writing it’s pretty interesting news. Asmodee is merging with Fantasy Flight Games. This is kind of a thing and maybe in the future when we look back to a place to note when hobby gaming became more of a mainstream thing in the worlds view this might be the start of it. Some of the biggest reasons is FFG makes tons of games based on their own IPs and licensed IPs and they tend to be good to excellent. Asmodee recently acquired Day of Wonder (they make Ticket to Ride and other great games) and have excellent games themselves as well as an excellent distribution network in Europe and China. So together they have a bevy of excellent games and products they can make and distribute all over the world with less difficulty because they have business interests, locations, and distribution channels all over the world.

Well that’s what I got this week. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

MMP November Edition

Hey Folks, Chris here. A few things happened near the end of last week that I wanted to talk about and what’s coming for the rest of the month.

First. The Misdirected Mark Podcast released Episode 135 – Sanity and Nights Black Agents which featured the secret weapon of the show Drew Smith. We talked about Sanity as a mechanic in games and then went In Depth on NBA. By the way the Dracula Dossier Kickstarter for NBA is running right now. I would suggest checking it out.

http://misdirectedmark.com/mmp135-sanity-and-nights-black-agents/

Second. Threat Detected has release the next part in their epic Star Wars AP C is for Chewbacca. Check out the crew as they help out Exovar (the Star Wars Indiana Jones) in his fight against the arms dealer Thasca, who’s put together a lethal squad of mercenaries to conquer Exovar’s Emporium.

http://misdirectedmark.com/c-is-for-chewbacca-volume-2-pt-1/

Last. I am part of Encoded Designs, Phil’s game company, and we’ve just finished up the Alpha for Part Time Gods of Fate and will be going to play test soon. If you’re interested in play testing hit us up on G+ or me over on Facebook and we’ll put you on the list of potential playtesters. Here’s the cover:PtGoF

Soon. I’ve chatted with Rob Schwalb of Schwalb Entertainment about game design and his upcoming Shadow of the Demon Lord in the Lounge which I hope to have out early this week. Rob Heinsoo of 13th Age and 4th edition fame and Writer, Editor, Leximaven, Game Girl, Vorpal Blonde, Midas’s Touch, and Schrödinger’s Brat Shanna Germain will also be on the feed this month along with an In Depth on 13th Age around Thanksgiving time.

That’s everything and you’ll be hearing from me very soon.

Things Coming in the Future – September 2014 edition

Hey Folks. Chris here from the Misdirected Mark Productions. I just wanted to throw info your way on what the next couple of months has in store for the network.

The Misdirected Mark Podcast has been going through some changes. Phil is now in charge of more of the shows operation allowing me to focus on things like growing the audience, advertising, and managing things like the Patreon project and to that we’ve already had our patreon’s who are at certain levels respond with what they’d like to see in the future of the show. There will be a Workshop Segment in October about something called The Magic Circle which if you’d like a preview of that you can watch it right here.

The RPG Review

In October the RPG review will continue as I go through Tremulus from Reality Blurs, an Ax inspired game using the idea’s from the stories of H.P. Lovecraft. Sean Preston wanted to get away from the Cthulhu mythos a bit and go for a more traditional Lovecraft feel with this one.

In November the RPG review will be looking at 13th Age. Rob Dorgan has been asking for a while for me to talk about 13th Age and I can finally say November is the month I can get to it. I’ll also be looking into getting Rob Heinsoo, Johnathan Tweet, or both on the show then. Right now there is a kickstarter going on for 13th Age in Glorantha by Rob Heinsoo Games. Check that out here.

In October we will be looking at a bunch of scary things. In the Garage we’ll be taking a look at Doom Tracks and Sanity as as a mechanic. In the Workshop there will be a discussion of the Magic Circle but we’ll also be talking about how to deal with the idea’s of insanity and horror at the game table. We’ll also hit an In-Depth on Eldritch Horror, the board game from Fantasy Flight.

Down with D&D & The TKV Team

Both of these shows will continue to put out episodes bi-weekly of both D&D goodness and dropping Video Game knowledge. The D&D crew will continue it’s adventures and to pour through the players handbook. The format will stay the same with three segments a show and keep to around a 45 minute long show. The TKV Team has informed me they plan on just keepin on with their conversation based format covering their backlogs of games played, news in the industry segments, and opinions on games from a variety of angles from game play to visual aesthetics.

I’d love to hear from you about how we’re doing with our shows and what we might be able to do better to inform and entertain you.

This time we talk about D&D at GenCon, the factions that are used in Adventure’s League play, and the Wizard, Sorcerer, and Warlock. We’re sans the Unstoppable Force, Alex Swingle, due to the internet, pesky tubes and clouds but that’s ok because our very own Regional Admin for the Adventurers League, Cindy Moore, helps me in filling the hole as best as we can. Hope you enjoy.
