Great Topics, Terrible Quality

By Bullishne - May 31 2019
Read more
I've listened to all the episodes so far (Up to "We are the Light of Peace", and while most of the normal episodes are alright, when it comes to their actual play episodes - they just shouldn't. The audio quality is well below terrible. Fires crackling, players mumbling and sudden 100 dB laughter makes those episodes downright painful to listen to. The games they cover include all my favorites, and I appreciate the viewpoints and ideas they bring. The problem they often have it tangential off-topic musings. Matt & Dave have a good interaction, but when they wander off-topic, they both seem to merrily follow each other. Perhaps a script, or a list of topics before the episode starts to keep them on target?

Dave and Matthew are sitting down even as this goes live to start running taster sessions of the Alien RPG on the Free League stand at UK Games Expo. Not everyone who wants to at UKGE will be able to play, and of course most of our listeners probably can't get to Birmingham, so here is a special gift.

In preparation for the taster sessions Dave and I ran Alien for our home groups. I ran Chariot of the Gods and didn't record that (spoilers), but Dave ran a couple of the sessions that we are going to be running at UKGE. Its only on a single omni-mic and in a pub, but I have cleaned up the audio and it sounds pretty good. Listen to this and it will be just like* being there!
