The group is stuck under the ocean in this One Shot of the Oceans RPG. This is a GM-less system where the players start off as amnesic in a strange location. Listen as Darfo, Zircher and DIrk try to escape from certain death below the waves. We will return to ZO next time. We also have a one shot of Wild Talent coming up also.
For a GM-less game, it seems that Zircher acted as one. More of a facilitator. I have this game as well, but haven’t run it yet. Still listening to the adventure.
Guilty as charged. But, someone had to keep Darfo/Betty in check.
I’ll fall back to the time honored tradition that he who brings the game, runs/facilitates the game. Still, it was a ton of fun even if we didn’t keep it serious to the bone. – TAZ
Also, a big shout out to Jake Richmond, the author of Ocean and many other fine RPGs over Atarashi Games. In the comments section over there, he was kind enough to post a link for the Sunday Skypers under Ocean. – TAZ
Finally I got to the end of this one. I had some serious listening issues. But those are water under the bridge, eh?
I have to say while I did miss some old familiar voice, I totally enjoyed this episode, and am grateful to you guys for playing this game. I am totally eNamored with it. I commented elsewhere that it’s like Fiasco but without the restraints. Well, there is the real big restraint of the starting situation, but once out of the room, the sky is the limit. (figuratively, because well…ocean, and you could be in outer space so the sky isn’t really a limit at all.) I truly hope you guys try this again with everybody. I would love to see how the trust/despise mechanics work in a bigger circle.
On to the actual show. It was fascinating. At times it was almost listening to 2 different games. Still and all it went pretty well, I loved the way everyone going off in their own different directions didn’t really hurt the plot. It’s kind of nice the way the spotlight kept moving that each story could unfold in it’s own way. I don’t know how much editing magic was used upon this episode, but the pace was appropriate and pretty smooth. Well done lads and thank you for sharing.
