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?

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.

Are the DM Hangouts and/or Fan Games on hold? If so will they return after summer?

(itmeJP) #34

We noticed interest in them dying down so we took them down for a bit. Also, Adam is going to be away during August, so we'll put them back up in August (so they can be scheduled in September).

Any chance for an Dropped Frames version of Tabletop RPG News with Adam, John, and an RPG Industry Guest? There is enough new RPGs systems coming out that I think there would be enough content for a monthly show of them talking what's new and what they have been working on. Could even bring you in JP as a player perspective on any new RPGs being discussed.

a monthly rpg themed dropped frames style show would be rad af
