David was talking about his Nebulon-B campaign and the idea was cool enough that we decided to do an entire episode about campaigns being set on a ship and the cool things you can do with it. Taking cues from The Hunt for Red October and Battlestar Galactica all the way through SeaQuest we talk about how to bring being on a large ships bridge to life.
We talk about coercion and the use of the skill at the table.
Joshua is away and one of my players was looking at the blackmail talent, so David and I had a discussion on how to use it, how it’s been used in movies and ways to improve its effectiveness.
Organizations are fun to come up with, so we came up with 9 new ones, each with a different bend.
David takes criminals, Joshua goes all forcey force, and Ben is doing odd military applications.
Hope and despair are woven into the DNA of Star Wars, and stories generally. How you can use hope in the darkest situations and despair when everything is going right is the topic of this weeks episode. Listen in and have fun.
A missing player isn’t the end of the world. We talk about how you can deal with players that are gone for a session or a month. The approaches differ but can be used to set the story forward in ways that wouldn’t normally be available.
