IPMM 82: Story Time – Delve Night, Part 1

Code word: #pizzanewspaperswerve

Blake and Highcove are back with stories from Delve Night, their series of open, one-shot encounters at the game store inspired by a similar (but short-lived) program by Wizards of the Coast.  The hosts talk about how their version of Delve Night started and what they learned about cooperative GMing and encounter design.

We’ve also added a new feature to Story Time. Each episode, the hosts will introduce a new hashtag they’ve invented. Use it in your Twitter, G+, and Facebook posts, and we’ll see if it catches on!

IPMM 74: Story Time #3 – The One Piece Campaign (Part 2)

“Yeah, we skipped #73 – it’ll be up later.”

Our guest hosts continue telling us about their campaign based on the One Piece anime/manga franchise. They recap the comic highlights of the campaign, and what they learned from running it.

We’ve broken this episode up into two pieces because irony.

Part two will be released next week.  We’ll probably also be doing a practicum on re-skinning at some point.

IPMM 72: Story Time #3 – The One Piece Campaign (Part 1)

“I had plastic surgery.  And got hit by a bus.”

The strippers return to the chocolate fountain for another episode of Story Time with Blake and Highcove!

In this episode, our guest hosts talk about their campaign based on the One Piece anime/manga franchise. They talk about why D&D 4E is such a good system for simulating the shōnen genre and how to “re-skin” classes and powers for added effect.  Then they recap the comic highlights of the campaign itself.

We’ve broken this episode up into two pieces because irony.

Part two will be released next week.  We’ll probably also be doing a practicum on re-skinning at some point.
