Reign of Winter: Of Our Elaborate Plans

Onward we move into the shed towards an exit from the Hut. Will one be found? Will it be the one sought after? Pull up a chair at our table to see. We are having a virtual bake sale to help get a mixing board so we can finally expand from a single microphone. Stop by and grab a coffee.   Ko-fi.com/gamingontherocks Title (Intro and Outro) music adapted from "Light Years Away" Copyright 2007 Chuck Silva "Light Years Away" Chuck Silva (https://chucksilva.bandcamp.com/) (https://sampleswap.org/mp3/song.php?id=886) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Pre-Combat Music Loop: "Remember This Shadow" Komiku (http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Komiku/Its_time_for_adventure__vol_2/Komiku_-_Its_time_for_adventure_vol_2_-_11_Remember_this_shadow) Licensed under Creative Commons: CC0 1.0 Universal (Public Domain) https://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/ Combat Music: "Corvus Aeer" Copyright 2018 RƎVZƎR0 (Ryan Bradley) "Corvus Aeer" RƎVZƎR0  from the "Martian Miasma RP" (https://soundcloud.com/revzero/corvus-aeer)

Signal of Screams: Baselines And Boundaries

We begin our third season with some group discussion before getting into the gameplay. Listen in as we talk about the horror genre, what scares us personally, our goals with playing a horror game, and open talk about boundaries.  The use of X Cards as well as an addition of Y and Z cards. We have color-coded these cards for an increased quick visual for when they are in use. X is Red for Stop, Y is amber for Caution, Z if green for GO. These cards are expected to see use not only in this campaign but future games going forward. A highly held truth for us is Consent is Required, Always. Using X Cards helps us solidify this.  Title (Intro and Outro) music adapted from "Light Years Away" Copyright 2007 Chuck Silva "Light Years Away" Chuck Silva (https://chucksilva.bandcamp.com/) (https://sampleswap.org/mp3/song.php?id=886) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
