Panda’s Talking Games- 1: Introductions

Talking Games Logo 200x200Welcome to the first show of Project Panda or Talking Games: Staring Senda and Phil or Phil and Senda. You decide which you like best. In short this show takes a look at those questions we love to think about  as GMs and Players but with the perspective of someone who plays and runs a lot of One Shots (Senda from She’s a Super Geek), and someone who runs a lot of campaigns (Phil from Misdirected Mark), to show you some of the differences and similarities of the two kinds of styles. And they attempt to do this in around 20ish minutes.

This inaugural episode introduces the pair and the show.  I hope you enjoy the pair, the show, and the cover art as much as I do.

Your humble audio editor and man behind the curtain of MMP,

Chris Sniezak

    Lawful play in l5r is often actively not good aligned.

To push the extreme end, we went lawful good.

        I would say that a lot of D&D style games really don’t ever hit any sort of good. Even f they are wearing a good mask (probably made of the face of actual good) they are more Jack Bauer plus pyromania. I know that with a lot of groups of players in a D&D style system my modal alignment is cn, with a mean somewhere between cg and ng

    […] unduly so, as I had trouble keeping up the level of ridiculousness.  My understanding is that Senda uses the same setup every time and never needs to prepare, which is a good idea–I just need […]
