Talking about Gaming the Irish Way!

Nov 26, 2014

This week's hosts: Icecream, Graham, Oisin, Humbug, Stu and Eoin

Recorded at live at Ireland's biggest anime convention! This week, the Adventuring Party brings you its panel discussion from Eirtakon, where we talked about the Japanese table-talk RPG, Ryuutama. And I guess we answered a few audience questions as well. And we talked about bad-tempered elephants.

Show notes:

  • 1.45: Ryuutama
  • 3.46: Pro Tip: “Misplaced commas or absent, commas are how you break any game”
  • 5.18: Oh crap, Graham's asking the hard questions.
  • 6.08: Stu asked if “Table-Talk RPG” was a typo – apparantly not, according to this wikipedia article which claims RPGs “are called table-talk RPG, TTRPG or TRPG in Japan to distinguish them from the video role-playing game genre.”
  • 6.28: Ha ha, Pat's old. Wait! I'M OLD! Awww...
  • 11.27: For those eagle-eared listeners who heard the clink of glass in the background there, there were a few reprobates hanging around the back of our panel room who were still there from the Cocktails Panel that had just finished, and spent our entire panel getting very politely and quietly drunk. Heroes, all.
  • 15.23: I can't believe I didn't make the Magic Farmer joke. Did you hear about the Magic Farmer? He went down the road and turned into a field.
  • 17.57: Oddjob's hat is awesome
  • 25.05: Crystal Chronicles
  • 34.57: This one's for you, Stephen!
  • 37.00: For those who are wondering what love hotels are. I feel the name is fairly explanatory, though.
  • 37.09: That guy was very quiet, but his question was if we had encountered other story-heavy games, particularly Nobilis and Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine
