Improvised Radio Theatre - With Dice

Working Hard to Overthrow Reality 01 December 2015


This month, Roger and Mike discuss handout-driven campaigns like The Armitage Files and The Dracula Dossier, consider British role-playing conventions, and ask: how railroady is too railroady?

We mentioned The Armitage Files, The Dracula Dossier, The Zalozhniy Quartet, Harnmaster, Transhuman Space, Dragonmeet, the Men in Black, UK Games Expo, Stabcon (no web site), Concrete Cow, The Esoteric Order of Roleplayers playing The Big Hoodoo (and part 2), Trail of Cthulhu (GUMSHOE system), Torg, and Robin's Laws of Good Game Mastering.

Michael's memory of the late 1970s in Nottingham may be in error but he is sure that people who were part of GW and Citadel were around at the time.

    I am listening to the segment about conventions at home having been unable to get to Dragonmeet. Being a regular attendee of Continuum I can say with reasonable certainty that Roger would enjoy it. Definitely my favourite.

    Thanks – I've put it in my diary and will try to make it.
