  1. It would be neat if you guys mentioned supporting game materials for the podcast topic, for example, The Gang Wars trilogy of modules could be integral for a street level campaign. Also, have you guys ever considered doing a Twitch.tv show? Something like 30 minutes a week or every two weeks to interact with the FASERIP community? Another good example for street level comics besides the 1990’s Age of Hype comics would be the 1970’s street level exploitation comics. Supernatural heroes like Ghost Rider and The Midnight Sons also work well at the street level and have the added benefit of being tied to the occult for more campaign/story options.

    1. Yes we have. I would have to chat with my cohosts on what days they could do it that would also allow people to view.. right now we record Sunday afternoon at 1pm eastern time.. not sure how many folks would tune in during that time?

  2. Great discussion guys. Some thoughts about campaign format:

    The RED series of films and comics are a good framework for a team in a low level campaign. They could be a mixture of retired heroes, spies and special ops veterans with a shared history (perhaps they live in the same retirement community).

    The more four colour (I’m British) style street level game can work well with 1) a reality show set up, in which the team is competing for funding/ a prize or 2) a Team-Up / Two In One style in which the gaming group shares one or two established heroes who are played on a rota system and each session the rest of the players can play new heroes who ‘guest star’ in the story. These PCs can be kept or discarded/ traded as players wish.

    Already looking forward to next ish.

    Doc.
