Actual Play Roundup: You Banned Humans?
A flurry of game designers put Microscope to the test, sparked by the RPG Book Club. Will they enjoy themselves or burn Microscope at the stake like the witch it is? Let’s see…
- War of the Beast-Men! — Jason Morningstar’s posse sets the bar: “You can’t call me a Nazi just because I refuse to fuck a bear.”
- Killing the Gods and SPACE Robots! — Double-header from two simultaneous games from Emily Care Boss and Evan Torner. Yes, the palette does include spaceships in the form of giant Greco-Roman statues.
- Capes & Cthulhu — Joel Shempert takes a deep look at character advocacy and restricted collaboration (“zooming in on emotion”) examining the excellent superhero game we played at Nemo Con.
Lots of great discussion and analysis in each of these threads. And if that’s not enough actual play for you, there are also some snippets from the Fabricated Realities Microscope games (all six of them) scattered throughout the “I left my heart @ Fabricated Realities” thread. Because yeah, Fabricated Realities was awesome.
The RPG Book Club still has two weeks to go. Chime in and share your experiences.
