Episode 3 The Terror of Doctor Toddler

Warning: gameplay recordings may and probably do include language and material offensive to some listeners. Ok, many listeners. Listener discretion is advised.

A group of super powered thugs take on a force even more dispacable than they are - nazis.

This is a playtest of the first complete build of the Dynamo rules, which is a narrative superhero system I wrote for National Game Design Month.

The recording isn't as clean of sounds and chatter as our normal campaign, for which I apologize. It's also a full hour longer than our regular campaign episodes - I didn't take another edit stab at it to get that last hour down, and there wasn't a convenient place to split it.

This was an informal, thrown-together playthrough and one of the players is joining us via Google Hangouts, but it's one of our more quotable episodes, so hopefully you'll forgive us it's shortcomings.

I rather enjoyed listening to this episode.

I think you must do something in the editing to make us sound cooler than we actually are, because during our sessions we don't sound nearly as entertaining. Maybe we're just distracted. :D

Also, for anyone out there checking us out:

Yes, we are horrible horrible people. We accept that. I honestly can't believe we didn't give a second thought to beating the crap out of a toddler. Never mind the fact that he would have pulverized us if he'd had half a chance.

The only "editing" I do is to remove most of the meandering off-topic chatter, unless it's really funny, and the long pauses that sometimes occur between talking.

When I originally started editing our game recordings, I had a completely different expectation of where our problems would lie. Since we've banned the background music and started taking breaks to open sodas and chips, our major problems have been my frequent throat clearing and the way both Tim and I start a sentence.

And then finish it 30 seconds later. It's a habit I wasn't even aware I had until I started listening to recordings of myself.

Though I'm not sure I've noticed the sentence delays myself. I know I hold my breath, completely randomly too, then make an annoying little sound when I start breathing again.
