Kevin, Misha, Sabe and Jason talk about their experiences with Blazing Rose.  It was the first GMless game for Misha and Jason, and we discuss how it resulted in a different play experience for them. The conversation then continues on to many differences between traditional and story games, and wraps with a bit of talk with Sabe about his inspirations for Blazing Rose.

Blazing Rose Actual Play

Posted in Blazing Rose, Play Sessions, RPG Only on August 12th, 2009 by Kevin Weiser

I met Edward “Sabe” Jones at Forge Midwest 2009, and we’ve kept in touch ever since. A few weeks back he was in town and we sat down to play his game Blazing Rose: A game of romantic rivalry. Joining us is Sabe’s girlfriend Misha and fellow local podcaster Jason Grabau from Diagonally Through the Woods. This was Jason’s first experience with a GMless storygame, and he had a great time with it. This is a full session of BR, covering setting, beloved, and character creation and then one round of narration. After a bit of discussion, we decided on a Fables/American Gods “mythical creatures in the modern day”. After the session we talked about how Blazing Rose was different from games Jason had been playing (mostly 4E). Stay tuned for that next week!

Posted in Forge Midwest 2009, Interview, Non-Actual Play, RPG Only on August 5th, 2009 by Kevin Weiser

Our final interview from the heady days of Forge Midwest 2009 is a brief interview with Willow Palecek, Forge Midwest organizer and designer of the FATE-based RPG Awesome Adventures. We talk with Willow about why she made Awesome Adventures, how she got into roleplaying, and how Forge Midwest came to be in Madison instead of Chicago. It was nice talking to Willow and I can’t wait for next year’s Forge Midwest!
