    I jokingly considered this possibility but dismissed it without a second thought. Like all humans, hubris was my undoing as well as my making.

    I would inform y'all how many posts you have left to make it count, but evidently, I have no fucking idea what that number is.

    This conversation between the centaur and harpy is killing me (in a good way, this vaguely pirate harpy voice has me snickering like a fool) on the newest Rude Tales.

    Also, isn't Touch Rustrod one of the names from Space Mutiny or another MST3K?

    I’m at that point in the podcast so I haven’t heard where they go next yet, but wow, the front-loaded, prolonged one-on-one with Tim had me checking the time frequently and I barely restrained myself from fast forwarding. I’ve kinda gotten used to his comedy as Stirfry, but this new character was just not what I wanted to listen to for twelve minutes straight. Tim has Big Theatre Kid Energy and it’s best taken with the rest of the cast.

    God yes. A week or so ago I listened to the New Year's special and thought the same thing about his character in that. Stir Fry is funny sometimes but the thing he does where he just has to do big energetic streams of words but he clearly hasn't thought of what to say are really starting to grate on me.

    I have nothing BUT Actual Play recommendations

    Protean City Comics: A Superhero Actual Play using Masks, set in a fictional comic book universe. Leans hard into the teen drama, and hard into the meta-history of the publishing company that releases their fictional comic series. Arcs are bundled as "Volumes" and are generally self-contained, making it easy to hop in pretty much anywhere.

    Shuffle Quest: a multiverse-hopping campaign, each session set in a different pop culture-themed RPG (such as the Men In Black RPG from 1996).

    Unexplored Places: A campaign length pod about exploring weird worlds through roleplay. Season 1 was an excellent Monster Of The Week game, and season 2 (which I candidly have not gotten to yet) has been in Scum and Villainy.

    Heart Points: A one-on-one campaign podcast, which explored a homebrew Dungeon world setting in its first season.

    Pod Of Love: A(nother) two-player RPG actual play focused exclusively on romance games, primarily using the game Fog Of Love.

    I've been thinking, and I really want to run a BitD game in the Fallen London setting

    a lot of people seem curious about the lore of the game but are understandably put off by the """gameplay"""

    and as a certified Person Of Terrible Priorities who has been playing the game since 2011 and has invested a not insubstantial amount of real world money in unlocking every available story, I feel like I'm in a unique position to actually craft a compelling narrative using that setting's unique strengths

    I do not know what BitD is but you'd have to struggle pretty hard for a translation of Fallen London to any other game system to be a downgrade you should do that thing

    My only real question/concern with that is that Blades in the Dark, by definition, is about criminal gangs engaging in criminal activity.

    There is a space for that in Fallen London, but I feel like (and this is admittedly based on my memory of having played years ago) that a lot of the game is more based around maneuvering through mid to high society. Are you going to be adapting any systems to be based around that, or are you just thinking of sticking with the crime elements that are present within Fallen London already?

    There is definitely a thrust towards gaining respect and notoriety and influence in Fallen London but it does become apparent once you get enough lore in you that
    being a social striver and gaining influence and power amounts to you thrashing tantalisingly in the web of the spider that is the Bazaar

    I listened to Eidolon Pop episode 3, they're starting whatever their job entails now I guess
    "Um... weren't we gonna go over chapter 14 today?" "We can also go over chapter 14."
    "I love how you have twisted this situation on me, and now I have to give you an extemporaneous lecture. Truly I've been hoisted by my own petard." "It's almost like I transmuted it, like some kind of alchemist." "Fuck off."
    "Forcing each other into a snafu, that's what this game is all about."
    Professor Brooks, more like Professor Books, since he apparently has written a book now
    "I read the text and just reply back, skull emoji, skull emoji, skull emoji, popcorn emoji, dragon emoji." "Oh, okay. She's watching a movie."
    "We have a poop emoji situation."
    "Does anyone know how to use a rotary phone? Professor?" "Now's my time to shine."
    "Right, y'all have fun with whatever the fuck this is. James walks away."
    "You, um, intuitively get the sense that maybe you should ask about those other departments instead of keeping trying to guess an absurdly secure password."
    "Refusal of the Call 3: Refusal Harder"
    "Do you love the Constitution?"
    "Another liberal snowflake college student, can't even debate in the marketplace of ideas, am I right?" "You doing okay there, Luke buddy?"
    "Just find a door, that you don't know what's on the other side of, and open it up!" if this were a visual novel, this is where they'd explain schrodinger's cat
    "I love how much of this audio podcast we're doing is devoted to us describing text messages."
    "Alexis is gonna text everyone to go enter a door that they don't what's behind it, and if they don't do it, then they're super lame, and she's not their friend anymore." "You know exactly how to get Sloane to do things."
    "Oh, I thought it was the slime, I'm sorry, I didn't realize it was racism." "There's always going to be a little bit of slime in the Undertow!"

    BitD is blades in the dark, which is basically running a gang, including playing characters doing heists and base building inbetween missions

    The "stress" mechanic of the system actually interacts really well with FL's Menaces - you can resist bad consequences and try and give yourself an extra edge on a roll but you'll gain stress, which can be very bad if it goes too high; so you have to use your downtime to relax by indulging your vice

    Indulge too much though and your character could get lost in a hedonistic fugue

    Also your gang has different classes and upgrades - you can command a bunch of skulky thieves or a coterie of spies or be hawkers of unique luxuries

    Which in FL could mean dabbling in spirifage, smuggling love stories to the surface or running a really good restaurant

    also the nice thing about fallen london more "proper" elements is that illicit and illegal are different things with different boundaries

    Lets say the hottest thing in salons is poetry readings, the racier the better; except the most outrageous poems are outright banned by the bazaar or the ministry of public decency. Want to get into the good graces of a baronette? Go steal some confiscated verses from a vault, smuggle them from hermit poets in the swamps, or forge convincing copies that'll get you through the door but unnoticeable by the special constables

    Most of the Crew types in Blades could transfer over to Fallen London pretty neatly. Honestly, the most difficult one would be the one where you murder people, since people in Fallen London can get better.

    that's actually pretty easy to solve - what can you offer the Boatman? will you take on an obligation from one of the other people in the boat on the river or can you make a trade that'll save you from the far bank? if not, then your character is out of the game for the session until they can heal and you have to use someone else

    I enjoyed this interaction between David Simms and Dan after one of Elliot's overlong bits on today's Flophouse (paraphrased)
    Dan: Now David, I want to know, what's it like being on a podcast with a Griffin that you cannot control? Does it just grate on you?

    David: No man, you've got it the wrong way around. I'm not in charge of driving this car so I'm having a great time just kicking back and listening to everyone talk.

    I think my favourite exchange was
    when Tim defended himself saying he doesn't stab people that much and the harpy pointed out "...Your cufflinks are daggers!" and Tim was like "Oh. Yeah. Wow, good point."

    Sadly, the Blank Check watchalongs aren't my thing it seems.

    They are too tangential to focus on the movie at the same time, but too sparse as standalone podcasts.
