Note: This is not a regular episode. This is an Actual Play recording of our second 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. If you have yet to listen to the first episode, we strongly recommend it.
During the second session, our five PCs venture out into the city to secure medical supplies for the wounded gathered at the diner… and they finally encounter their first zombie. Predictably, hijinks ensue. 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.
