A Penny For My Thoughts…part 3

Posted By on February 26, 2009

“On a very special episode of Story Shtick…the story of Thomas…husband, father, cop…and mental patient.”

I lifted out one player character’s story to see what it would be like to hear it in sequence. Please let me know what you think.

Also on this episode I give some opinions on the game and issues surrounding it. Not really a review or commentary as I did with “Dirty Secrets” or “Primetime Adventures” – that wouldn’t be fair since the game has been in development a full year since this playtest. But it raised some issue I wanted to discuss. Here’s more of my thoughts on one of those issues.

Oh yeah, I also shoved a promo for these guys in there just to break things up a bit.

About the author

I'm from Colorado - but not originally. I like roleplaying games - obviously. I have a wife and three kids - shockingly. I also enjoy video games (XBox, Wii) and boardgames. I love to run RPGs at conventions and game days for the focus and intensity. I'll talk about RPGs all day with those who are willing.

    Wow. It is great to hear this again. I was the player who played Thomas in this episode. I remember this game as being a very emotional experience for me as we created these dramatic moments in Thomas’ life. It was probably one of the best games that I have ever played and I have played quite a few in my lifetime. I look forward to more story games and I encourage others to give them a try.
