Voices at play show

Voices at play

Summary: "Voices at play" is an actual play podcast, created by the team behind the project of the same name. Our goal as a group of diversely marginalised people is to fund, promote and create content around games written and designed by marginalised creators. Tabletop Roleplaying Games, or TTRPG are a type of game designed specifically for people to get together and tell stories with. These stories can range from the magical worlds of tolkein-esque fantasy to the grittiest noir thriller. It's a hugely diverse genre that is dominated in the popular narrative, by a tiny handful of overwhelmingly big names. Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder and Shadowrun are the ones you've probably heard of. These games, however good they may be, are designed to tell very specific kinds of stories. They can certainly be adapted to tell others, but there are hundreds of games out there that are specifically designed to tell different stories! Voices at play aims to use them to do so. The "Voices at play" project goes beyond simply focusing on games though; we want to focus on the people behind them. As with a lot of classically "nerdy", "niche" hobbies; the face of TTRPG is largely lead by straight white men. In a genre so heavily dominated by the big names at play, we want to work to create space at the table for everyone. To do that, Voices at play focuses on games by marginalised creators and our project is run entirely by marginalised people. We want to demonstrate the value in diverse, inclusive gameplay and introduce you to as many new games and creators as we can along the way. Our podcast and ongoing efforts are funded entirely by our generous supporters. You can learn more about our project, through our website https://ttrpg-voices.com or our patreon page https://patreon.com/VoicesAt where you can pledge, for as little as $1 a month, and join our ever growing community, helping us to raise our voices.

This week's game features a preview of the setting provided as part of the game as sold, in the world of Eta: In an effort to show off a little of the game beyond the character playbooks and rules/guides, our GM Atlas opted to run through a scenario they built using the setting that operates as the base of Interstitial and the players chose to play a mix of characters both original and pre-existing to demonstrate that this works too!

It's conflict time! This episode showcases an example of combat for the first time.If you've only ever experienced combat through the likes of D&D or you've never played or heard a Powered by the Apocalypse system being run, this should play out extremely differently to your usual expectations. Combat is succinct, always narrative focused and moves the story forward!This is also, just a great example of how combat and character action can change things to the unexpected! We hope you enjoy the exciting conclusion to this one shot as much as the players did!

The start of this particular adventure will be deeply familiar to anyone who has ever played The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Em, our GM for this one shot, takes their players to the land of Hyrule where the Princess Zelda is awaiting with a mission to save their imperilled land. Leaning heavily into the spirit of Interstitial, Em successfully composes their own take on the "world of Hyrule" which NONE OF THE PLAYERS ARE FAMILIAR WITH. This produces some really fantastic dynamics, proving that even in a fictional setting your players don't know the way you do, as a GM, taking inspiration from (or even lifting directly) your favourite fictional places, is an easy recipe for success.

  For a lot of people, playing TTRPGs is about coming up with new characters then seeing what stories you can tell with your friends. Despite the emphasis on ‘Living out your wildest fan fiction’ (which might be offputting, to some), Interstitial’s diverse range of playbooks allow for all sorts of characters to be made for play, including completely unique and original characters. In Episode two of our run of Interstitial one shots, join Alexis, Sarah, Pidj and Thai as they take an altogether calmer approach to gaming. Alexis takes her players (as a group of young teenager characters) to an original setting in which their school vacation takes an altogether unexpected turn.
