Will there be a new goal put in place to replace the Cosplay goal that was removed?

I don't know if it was discussed but I'm just curious. About when in the month should we be seeing the new Greersart thing? A general towards the end or beginning of month suffices for me if you've any idea.

Any more movement on teleconferencing solutions?

Is Morgan still going to do 2 more episodes of CoS?

How'd the numbers come out for Blades on the change?

Plans for anymore Patreon tiers?

I don't know if it's too early to tell but do you think the Revlo stuff is getting more/longer viewership?

Do you know what the next Liveshow will be?

Not a question, but thanks for being open to answering this stuff in a consolidated place.

From Reddit again:

Why are there no backup plans for when 1/4th of the regular cast has to cancel for one reason or another?

Blades handled it exceptionally well with Anne being gone, why can't the other shows do that?

Is rollplay ever going to go beyond the four player format? I understand the fear of scheduling issues as well as cluttering overlays with so many webcams and such but I think that having an extra player or two would allow for a more diverse cast so that a larger audience is covered, make shows more dynamic in the long run, and makes it so one player being unavailable doesn't mean no game since each player would constitute a smaller portion of the show. It opens up a lot of interesting player combinations and possibilities for fresh content.

The issue is finding games that handle more than 4 players well.

Most just aren't built for such things.

Unless you mean something like WM and an open table sort of game.

Will Court of Swords be happening this Tuesday 4/4?

Is there any possibility of a Solum One Shot in the future with the original cast and DM, maybe for the five year anniversary?

Most games that can do 4 players can do five just as easily I'm not sure what you mean? I regularly play all kinds of games with 5 people for example.

Blades for example has been stated to not do well with more than 4, not all games are intended for so many people.

Can we please stay on topic. Another post can be made should you want to continue this discussion.

Are there any plans in the near future or just in general the future for any new show(s) with the two gm's that are running show(s) or with a new gm that can say anything about or are in the talking / planning stage? :slight_smile:

Any plans for what show will be next on RollPlay live? Have you thought about doing an extended One-Shot live?

Well you're probably going to get this quite a bit, but is there a non zero percent chance of The Grim spawning into a new Dark Heresy series? I'd love to see Adam and John as a regular player.

Do you know when we might see the latest CoS art up for the $2 Wallpaper thing?

(Alaskawinter923) #28

What are your thoughts on taking the character creation part of your one-shots and separating them from main show? It kind of feels that you shorten the game play and time together by spending first hour(s) developing the characters and miss out on more of the arch. Also might get more people to go to patreon. Just curious. …

I think that would defeat the purpose of the Oneshot series, which is to introduce a less known system and most if not all its nuances from character creation to actual gameplay.

(itmeJP) #30

Most of the time with one shots it is hard enough be able to schedule stuff out for one four hour session, adding in a second 1hr session for character creation for Patreon is too taxing. It is the most efficient way to handle those things, though, just sometimes not always possible.

Also, it is somewhat nice to be able to show character creation for people wanting to see the system in its entirety.

(SlyBebop) #31

Also, character creation is very much a part of the game. You're really not "shortening" play time.

When the players get together to create characters, they're already playing the game.

This has been mentioned a few times.

As also mentioned character creation, depending on the game, is considered pretty integral to the game itself and is as fun as playing arguably sometimes too.

Dark Heresy Second Edition's Oneshot had a separate character creation, but that's because character creation can take a very long time sometimes.

An hour's character creation is relatively short, there are much longer ones out there.
