Note: This is not a regular episode. This is an Actual Play recording of our third online game session with Erik and a handful of friends and listeners, played entirely over Google Hangouts. The game is a zombie apocalypse scenario set in an isolated town in southern Colorado. We strongly recommend you listen to the previous Actual Play episodes before enjoying this one.
The Metagamers Anonymous Actual Play series is sponsored by Lone Wolf Development, makers of Hero Lab!
During the third session, our PCs approach the pharmacy where a vicious biker gang called the Pythons is currently holed up. This recording is the first part of the session, during which the heroes join forces with the local sheriff and attempt to devise a plan of attack. In the second portion of the session, you will hear the PCs’ plan go into action… The system is Savage Worlds. As none of the players have any experience with the system or with gaming via videoconferencing, some of the recorded material includes details about system mechanics and the occasional challenge associated with the medium. For GMs who are interested in running a similar scenario, we used the Welcome to Mortiston, USA! setting product from Scrying Eye Games. If you are interested in online gaming with Savage Worlds, you might also consider Google Hangouts and Tabletop Forge.
