Episode 7 – when players break your plot
Episode 7 begins with us trying to figure out how to pronounce Aram’s name. He regales us with his single, tragic experience with D&D, the details of which get us thinking about how roleplayers tend to insert RPG elements into other areas of their lives.
We take some time to thank the other podcasts that have been uniquely supportive of Fear the Boot. This includes HarpingMick of HarpingMonkey.com, JJ from Fist Full of Comics, and Chuck and Lonnie of Dragon’s Landing Inn.
Since we had the entries in hand, we select a winner for the “origin of Fear the Boot” contest and tell you the real story behind our name. Adam had a Rifts book handy, so we also pause to discuss the ups and downs of the Palladium games and generic rules systems in general.
Our advice portion focuses on dealing with players that break your plot, straying places you never expected them to go. We offer quite a few tips for getting them back on track and keeping them there without resorting to heavy-handed tactics.
Hosts: Adam, Aram, Chad, Dan
