Episode 266 – vivid storytelling
by Dan Repperger

* (0:00) Don’t worry.  We’ll stick with podcasting.

* (2:07) May 5th?  Wow, I’m behind on getting these episodes out.  But for those of you that didn’t make it, welcome to Fear the Con V!  We start by introducing the podcasts represented on this episode.

* (2:55) The winner of the Power 16 III!

* (4:39) The art of storytelling in an RPG, as inspired by an article about running games for a blind gamer (which can be found here).  Adding vivid appeal in a small number of words.  The importance of all five senses in the description of setting, dialog, and action.  Holding the other people at your table accountable for contributing to the scene.

* (41:33) Stopping just shy of entrapment, Chris Ings gives Johann something a Juggalo would surely love.  We also get a gift from Japan, which went entirely to Chad.

I just wanted to say that the sound quality for a live episode was outstanding.

Gotta agree with Sardel on this. Previous “live from FTC” episodes sounded like they were taped in a raquetball court. This year’s take was good. Wouldn’t have even known it was a con-episode.

Well, you know, besides all the mentions, microphone juggling, audience questions, panel members, etc.

Both the direct link and embedded player? I just tried them out, and they seem to work for me. If you still can’t get to the show, let me know! If nothing else, I’ll just send you a download from a file transfer service.
