Field Trip to Savage Ghostbusters ep 1


Hello and welcome to A Field Trip to Savage Ghostbusters. The Field Trip is the newest Actual Play series of podcasts from The Rpg Academy. In the Field trip we’ll be using a different set of systems and a revolving cast of players for a series of one-off / One-shot adventures. Unlike The Trials which are focused on learning the rules of the system a Field Trip is just about the adventure – so rules may or may not be used correctly.


For our this field trip we go back to 1990 in Cincinnati, Ohio to the local chapter of the Ghostbuster Franchise with Reginold (played by Michael – @TheRpgAcademy), Hand the Tank, Jr (played by Ryan – @Teleporta) and G.I. John Wayan (Played by Jim McClure – @GMJimMcClure)

In this first episode we meet the crew, learn a lot about them and I like to think about ourselves, but most importantly – we get a job.

Special thinks to T. Jordon “Greywolf” Peacock who created the Savage Ghostbusters setting.

  1. That was a lot of fun to listen to, I’m not sure how you’re going to ever end up catching a ghost, or survive outside of jail for more than a few hours. It was very entertaining, and I’ll look forward to the next part of it.

    Right off the bat the gm gets savage worlds wrong; if you do not possess a skill, you roll a d4-2 and the wild die also at -2. You do not default to your attribute. That would make buying skills irrelevant.

    1. Scott,
      Yeah, I think we figured this out later on and corrected ourselves. I am sorry that we missed it at the time, I know i’ve listend to some casts before that get basic D&D rules wrong and i’ve gotten frustrated. I hope that it didn’t ruin your enjoyment of the show. With the Field Trips we aren’t as concerned with following the rules per se (I have a Marvel FASERIP game coming up where I completly made up my own combo power rule on the fly) where a ‘The Trial’ we try to follow them as closely as possible.
