Tales from the Hydian Way: Season 2

Recommended Posts

Hi all, once again, I've fallen far behind in updates - work has been crazy with lots of travel.

While I've been gone, we've put out quite a few episodes:

Episode 101 - we revisit the Crossroads Sector, detailing people & other personalities

Episode 102 - we talk about how crime lords & other sinister sorts can get their hooks in players, and never let them go

Episode 103 - this discussion focuses on making supporting NPCs interesting, not just useful

Episode 104 - sometimes, you need a different style campaign, and we discuss everything from professional sports to scientific researchers - all with helpful references to some of our favorite movies

Episode 105 - we talk tech, and revisit the fact that Star Wars has a distinct technological paradigm, using principles very distinct from our modern tragectory

Episode 106 - we talk grand villains, their thugs, and how to use both

 

Happy listening!

In keeping with my insanity, but trying to do better - three more fun episodes!

Episode 107 - The Exploration Tale - great conversation about how to make exploration more cinematic and more exciting.

Episode 108 - Despite the title, this episode is really good ;) We talk about using disasters, both natural and sentient-made, into cool stories, with brief excursions to talk about real-world preparedness. A great source of inspiration and information is ready.gov - check it out!

Episode 109 - Continuing our discussions of things that can go horribly wrong for heroes, we talk about problems that are unique to space, from stir-crazy crews to radiation blasts. Fun, informative, and likely to make that next Despair on your Astrogation check just a touch more exciting!

I'm only disappointed that you guys never talked about economic disasters. It's an odd topic, but I know you would have been able to make it enlightening.

At some point we'll have to come back and look at this, I'm not quite sure what we'd put it in with but it could be an interesting topic.

Hi all, 

Another batch update because I've spent more time sleeping in hotels and on airplanes than at home, and somehow, that translates to me not really posting as much.

We've had 5 interesting episodes for you to explore:

Episode 111 - The Seeking Tale, in which we do a long overdue discussion of Savage Spirits

Episode 112 - The Gifted Gear Tale. This one is all about the loot - how to get it, how to give it

Episode 113 - The Horror Tale. There was a holiday at the end of October and things got strange

Episode 114 - The Droid Tale. Talking toasters and metal men - the weirdness of Star Wars' non-organic sentients

Episode 115 - The Railroad Tale. Sometimes, you've gotta put your players on the straight and narrow, and sometimes you've gotta let 'em roam. 

 

Happy listening!
