RPG Logic podcast

RPG Logic is a podcast intended to help run role playing games. We record sessions of a roleplaying game and break it up into scenes after listening to the scene, we discuss the game mastering and playing choices. Discuss what went well, what failed, and what could be done differently next time. An emphasis is placed on the choices that are made by the gamemaster and players for both running the game at the table and for preparing games.

In this episode, we return to our on going Trail of Cthulhu investigation. We struggle with technical issues and our lack of memory of what was going on. We should have just moved on to the next investigation. So, where were we? Oh, yes Brother Moloney had just made off with Commander Beckett. Too bad for Beckett.

Today we discuss the importance of having a good session zero. Session zero is when you lay out everyone’s expectations and meld the player group together. We carry the conversation a little bit farther afield to discuss when you should hold another session zero and the sorts of problems you can encounter if you don’t get everyone on the same page about what game you are playing.

In this episode the investigators decide on a lovely overnight cruise on a party boat, the Chrysanthemum Love Garden, will be just the thing to calm them down. Not really, they figure that Moloney will be there looking for his next victim, as the previous victims had all visited the cruise ship. It’s not nearly as relaxing as one would hope.
