Scum and Villainy #3: Gonna Dominate This News Cycle

Scum and Villainy #3: Gonna Dominate This News Cycle

October 20, 2020

Neon Citizen has had run-ins with the System police and the Hegemonic News Network (HNN) paints an image of them as rabble-rousing troublemakers with no future. Neon Citizen wants to break into the HNN field office orbiting the planet and broadcast their own message to the people, spreading their Punk ideology. But they need a way in…

 

Can our ragtag band of scoundrels work together to make bank and spread their name across the sector? Or will they push their luck too far and end up on the wrong side of powerful enemies?

 

This is part one of a three part game for International Podcast Month. 

Players

  • Bethany | She/Her (GM) - DnD RAW Podcast
  • Daniel | He/Him (Editor) - Explorers Wanted Podcast
  • Stace | She/Her - Explorers Wanted Podcast

About the Game

Scum and Villainy is a Forged in the Dark game about a spaceship crew trying to make ends meet under the iron-fisted rule of the Galactic Hegemony. Work with the members of your crew to thrive despite powerful criminal syndicates, warring noble families, and strange mystics.

Orinthal Redux #2: Might Not Be Particularly Trustworthy

Orinthal Redux #2: Might Not Be Particularly Trustworthy

September 29, 2020

Our heroes discover that the group calling themselves the Whispered Ones has influenced all of their lives in some way or another. Listen in as connections between the party appear as they begin to make their plans to combat these Whispered Ones and search for those who have disappeared!

Welcome to Orinthal Redux! We are re-releasing our original short series, Orinthal, with new editing and music. Three years ago, we started our podcast with this actual play with no idea of where it would lead. Taking place over a hundred years before our current actual play adventures, our characters in Orinthal looked for clues and hunted for a secret foe who instigated devious plots within the city. 

For those who have listened to the original release, we hope you will enjoy this fresh take on the story. Starting from when our heroes meet, our editor Adam has cleaned up the audio and we have added music to enhance the mystery and action. If you want to hear the original character introductions, those are still available on our podcast feed. You can also read our character backstories on our website.

Follow us on twitter @RulesAsWritten. We'd also love to hear from you! We have our Discord server, which allows us to directly engage with you beyond Twitter. Join us as we chat about rules, characters, and TTRPGs in general. During these troubled times we are keenly aware of the importance of entertainment media to help all of us get through. It is in this spirit that we're expanding the Nabresal network to include sending spells through electronic mail. Would you like to write a letter to Luven? Well, now you can! Please address your letter to dm@DnDRAW.com

Want access to behind the scenes content, included unreleased outtakes, adding to the story, and even joining our monthly Patron game? We would be thrilled if you support us on Patreon!

Rules: Eberron: Rising from the Last War

Rules: Eberron: Rising from the Last War

February 17, 2020

“Pulp adventure with noir intrigue.” We review the new Eberron campaign setting and adventure book from Wizards of the Coast about a world that needs heroes, but the stories don’t always end happily. 

We are joined by our friends and DnD RAW cast members, Nick Ducharme, and Mike, @Valranoth, to talk about their thoughts on the new Eberron book.

Additional notes from Mike: All dragonmarks manifest magically on a person. Usually in adolescence, but it’s not a hard rule. A few points from the author’s blog: “The most reliable way to produce an aberrant mark is to mix the bloodlines of two different dragonmarked houses. [...] The powers granted by the [true dragonmarks] are largely constructive or positive in nature, while the powers of an aberrant mark are largely destructive or disturbing.”

And House Phiarlan would be a better Disney fit.
