Episode 467 - Serendipity in Story

Postby TwilightVulpine » Wed Dec 06, 2017 7:41 am

Great podcast!

But boy, if Skies of Glass is about hope, a game you guys make about despair might be literally traumatizing.

We have the death of the main embodiment of good in the party, while they are captive by a group of barbarians who massacre innocent people for fun and profit. We have child murder, political wars and treachery everywhere.

I guess hope is in the magic water... but not too much of it.

That said, the symbolism is magnificent, and I loved the analysis you made of the event after the fact. Skies of Glass under Dan really lends itself to deep meaningful moments as he has so many layers to his GMing style. Now I really get what you have said in previous podcasts.

What others havent caught onto yet is the SoG isent a game about hope.

Dont let DAN, the " DM " fool you!

SoG is actually a story being told by Lee, to children, many years later, in the Ist camp, after Motumar took over as Pa Carver.

Sounds about right.

I've just listened to SoG 14 by the way, and I take back the water part.

This episode is great for exploring the depth of what is going on behind the scenes and in people's heads.

I had no idea Joe's death actually so tragic / noble when I first listened to the AP, but listening to them talk about it in 467 actually made me tear up a little.

On ths plus side, I'm sure that Broohilda the Beagle Valkyrie would be happy to escort Joe into Valhalla after that shot at redemption.

This episode made me jump back into the actual play. And it is great.

When I see a new SoG AP has been released it gets jumped to the front of my listening queue.

It was brushed over so quickly I actually had to rewind it to listen to it again. Brodeur’s wife was shot in real life? What is the story? I hope she is ok and recovering.

From the sound of it every time it's come up, this was some time ago, so I rather hope she isn't still recovering.

Apparently they told the story on the mics but the quality or the content didn't make for a good show. They scrapped that recording.

From what Chad posted in another thread there isn't much desire to revisit the topic at this time.
