Note: This is not a regular episode. This is an Actual Play recording of our (fourth and) fifth 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!
Due to a technical misfire, the fourth episode of this series was actually lost. Fortunately, little in the way of story development occurred during this session, and I took a moment to explain the relevant details at the start of the recording. During the fifth session, our PCs finally encounter a small horde of zombies, as well as an enormous beast that may or may not have begun as something human… The system is Savage Worlds. 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 (now Roll20!).
