Hello students! Welcome to a new bonus feature on The RPG Academy, Detention!
We were so happy to hear good feedback about this bonus content that we decided to make more!
In this episode, Caleb and Scott are joined by special guest Christopher from the Sharkbone podcast! As usual, these episodes are a little more rough around the edges, with less editing to reflect a more conversational tone. They also include more of the tangents, bad jokes, and adult language that we tend to use when we’re hanging out and having fun.
In Extra Curricular, Christopher shares some personal tragedy and talks about moving to Ohio. Bummer. But he redeems himself by not knowing geography. Scott brings up early preparations for AcadeCon and we talk about story structure in games. The pesky ghost of Jim McClure is mentioned but not summoned. Caleb starts a tangent about cartoons (which Christopher takes back a decade) and then digs into binging Limitless on Netflix. In Dead Campaigns, Christopher shares a campaign that did not survive the first play session. We also discuss ways to handle the situation when a player makes a challenging choice during character generation. And in Class Review, we move on from the four stereotypical classes and discuss the Warlock. We look at the class from its 3.5 roots to its current version in 5E and get into the flavor and mechanics that it delivers to players. We get super nerdy here, and a lot of math comes up. If you want to see Christopher flex his math skill, check out what he wrote about warlocks here. And we have a difficult time finding warlocks in other games, but we do find their theme or flavor.
As always, thanks for listening. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or requests for future episodes. We hope you enjoy.
