Odder Worlds - Night’s Black Agents - Chargen

March 23, 2018

Before it will end in aliens and intrigue it will start out as just an average day tracking down an Iranian Agent in an Arizona observatory.  But before even that we need to know who is doing the tracking.  Three agents are on their way and the only thing they have in common is they've all survived encounters with the unexplained.  Find out who they are now.  This is character generation for Night's Black Agents. 

GM/Director: Ken Hurt

Players: Abbey Normal Perini, Monica Wilson, Tim Azarchs

Game: Night's Black Agents from Pelgrane Press

The Geekly Oddcast 25 - Game Runner (Do GM’s Dream of Eclectic Sheep)

March 15, 2018

It's RPG week on the Geekly Oddcast, it's RPG time.  Running a game can often seem overwhelming, so we got a couple of our game masters from the Odder Worlds side of the show to talk about how to run a game without driving yourself insane.  It's a mix of advice for first time GMs and hard learned lessons.  If at any time it seems like our panel might be untrustworthy or sadistic, try not to worry about it.  It will all be fine.

Panel: David Herman, Jarod Cerf

Odder Worlds - Variations on a Theme 1

February 23, 2018

This week on Odder Worlds, we are doing something different.  We're going to break a few games and see what makes them tick.  See, like it or not, the rules of RPGs have an effect on the game and we're goin to take a closer look at how.  So we are going to run the same scene (well... the same beats anyways) in four different systems and see what happens.

Basically, this week on Odder Worlds, we are doing the same thing we always do, only moreso.
