Episode 103: Tattered Stockings and Last Year's Surcoat

This month, Mike and Roger look at Realm Management and other game modes which move away from the individual PC, and consider how to write a TV show bible.

We mentioned:

Tunnels and Trolls and Catalyst stuff at the Bundle of Holding, Wharticulture talking about T&T, The Grognard Files on T&T, The Yellow King RPG at the Bundle of Holding, GURPS Realm Management, GURPS Boardroom and Curia, GURPS City Stats, GURPS Mass Combat, GURPS Social Engineering and further volumes, the Birthright setting, After the End, that Far Side cartoon, Reign, and Aria: Canticle of the Monomyth. (The phrase Michael could not recall this month was ‘capstone game’. He thinks.) Then Allen Ury’s advice on writing a TV show bible, Irresponsible and Right, The Love Boat, Battlestar Galactica, Hill Street Blues, Doctor Who, Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Wagon Train, Star Trek, Big Love, CSI, The Good Wife, The Good Place, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Alias (the show Michael couldn’t remember), Monster Hunters series, Powered by the Apocalypse, 100-Hour Lasagna, Stranger Things, and Save the Cat!.

Here’s our tip jar. (Please email or leave a comment as well; they don’t always tell me when money’s gone in.)

Fabulous. Roger talking about the economic superiority of bees in Pendragon and Michael responding “I don’t think that’s a bug,” :grin:
