Acuqisitions Incorporated!

Recommended Posts

What is this thing you talk about? Never heard of it...

 

For webcomics I have read the order of the stick, GM of the rings and Darths & droids. And some girlgenious, but it became tedious after a while. Never seen this mentioned before

So there's this incredibly successful web comic called Penny Arcade. One of the side projects of the two creators has been a series of Dungeons & Dragons games played first on a podcast and then live in front of a huge audience at their Penny Arcade Expo conventions. The GM was one of the D&D developers, and they had some minor geek celebrities as players along with the PA guys. And now they're doing an Edge of the Empire live game at their next convention in Australia.

You could literally imagine all of Acquisitions Incorporateds adventures being set in star wars if you assume Jim Dark(sith)magic is the one who owned their original ship before he crashed on Not Faerun (and why Omin learned to pilot ships and giant Mecha) where it led to a dramatic encounter with Omin's sisters who run a rival smuggling group before falling foul of Omin and an Imperial mercenary unit called Force Grey!?

Oh and the Kylo Ren they refer to is Aoefel which is where all those comments about acid pits is referring to!

IF you can spare the time, search "Acquisitions Incorporated" on youtube. They're lengthy, but very entertaining and hilarious! Chris Perkins is my dream GM. He's brilliant.

I need podcasts on my daily walk to work, so will look into this. Thanks for the tip!

Don't know, they are usually put on Youtube after a few days if that helps.  I have now watched it and they butchered the rules, but that doesn't matter too much for this type of show.

It was good, but the flow wasn't great compared with their D&D shows, hopefully that picks up as they become more comfortable with the characters, setting and system.

It is EotE. They fail with rules sometimes (I guess they delierately take a light approach to this), but this is a very nice session with great role-playing.  Highly recommend to watch to any new GMs/players to get the gist of the game.

So any additional information on this?

Character sheets?

What class of ship is the Mynock?

I don't think those details really matter. What matters is how the players role-play and use the mechanics of the system to have fun)

I would say the mechanics are quite relevant to how the players "use the mechanics of the system to have fun." For some people, such as myself, the crunch of the game is at least half the fun. I remember this one 5th edition character I played. He was a fighter, a smith whose purpose in life was to prove that halberds are objectively better weapons than glaives.

The joke there, of course, is that the two weapons are utterly identical in 5e. The difference he was so obsessed with exhibiting and proving was simply nonexistent.
