IPMM 33: Monsterhearts Episode 6

“Erotic Subtext”

Before the recording we watched a rather disturbing music video. It is not available on YouTube and I refuse to link it here, but needless to say there are teens and extreme body horror.  If you’ve seen it, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about. If you haven’t, good for you.

In this episode:

  • Chassie, Robin, Gabe, and Mara return to the haunted house. It goes poorly.
  • Then, Gabe and Mara have a quiet moment alone. It goes poorly.
  • Then Chloe shows up. It goes… well?  Whatever — YOLO!

IPMM 31: Monsterhearts Episode 5


In this episode of Monsterhearts, Chassie and Gabe go huntin’ and things get a little heated. Gabe learns something about Chassie’s family’s past.  Chloe starts doing real damage, and the rest of the gang decide they’re going to check out that haunted house again.

Disclaimer/Trigger Warning: there is a really, really uncomfortable scene involving physical assault and a false allegation of rape near the end of the episode. If this is not your cup of tea, you can stop listening around 1:06 in the audio, when Mara drops Chloe off at Brian’s house. You won’t be missing all that much.

IPMM 27: Monsterhearts Episode 3


In this episode of Monsterhearts, Chloe throws a costume party which Gabe promptly trashes.

Meanwhile, Mara, Chassie, and Robin get sidetracked and the PC’s get their first whiff of the season’s Big Bad.

Everything goes downhill from there.

This episode was pivotal – it set the tone for much of what happened over the rest of the season.  It was also the first time anyone hit their Darkest Self – but we won’t spoil any more of it for you.  Sit back, strap in, and enjoy!

IPMM 25: Monsterhearts Episode 2

“Hash tag #butts”

We had some homework before the session: draw what’s on our characters’ desks in homeroom. The results were… somewhat predictable.

Then, Chloe and Mara see a movie, we find out some of the students have gone missing, the girls have an impromptu makeover, and Gabe does a bunch of dumb stuff.

We also spend some time figuring out how the moves and strings work.

IPMM 24: Monsterhearts Episode 1

“I’ve given you everything.”

Disclaimer/Trigger Warning: The content of this Actual Play may disturb some listeners. Topics may include teen sexuality, abuse (sexual, physical, emotional), rape, body-shaming/eating disorders, and criminal activity.  We do not pull punches, though we try to give serious issues the gravity they deserve.  If this doesn’t seem like the sort of thing you want to listen to, go listen to our Apocalypse World APs instead (they’re way tamer – no, seriously).

With that out of the way, this season of Joe McDaldno’s Monsterhearts features:

  • Will as Chloe, the Infernal
  • Duncan as Robin, the Mortal
  • Caitlin as Mara, the Ghoul
  • Joanna as Chassie, the Werewolf
  • Dave as Gabriel, the Chosen
  • … and Yanni as the MC

This recording covers the introduction to the game, character creation, and our first day of class.  Hope you enjoy it!

Monsterhearts Cheat Sheet

We’re about to start putting up our Monsterhearts play recordings, and one of the things we have noticed playing the game is that, while flavorful, the quick reference sheets provided at Buried Without Ceremony are hard to navigate.

So, as a service to all the awesome gamer folk out there, we’ve created our own, color-coded cheat sheet for the game.  It’s got most of the information on the MH cheat sheet, and everything you’ll need for regular play is on one side of a page. It’s also released under a Creative Commons license so you can remix it any way you like for your own games.
