Cannibal Halfling Radio Episode 5 – Delayed Secrets

Welcome to the Dark Future of Cannibal Halfling Radio! Now that we’re in (Cyberpunk) 2020, and we survived the chaos of the holidays and some cyberpsycho-halfling-induced technical difficulties, we have some gently-aged Resolutions for the new year with regards to game design, playing games, and right here at CHG. After we look to the future, we pull aside the curtain for a discussion on secrets in roleplaying games: what kinds there are, when they go well and when they go awry, and how to make sure yours go the former way.

Things We Talk About:

Resolutions: Kickstarter: Zinequest 2, Our Queen Crumbles, Cyberpunk Chimera, Transit: The Spaceship RPG, G.E.N.E.S.Y.S. Mecha, The Mad Adventurers, PbtA: How a Rule-System Nurtured A Queer Fanbase, Masks: A New Generation and the Possibilities of Trans Narratives, Trophy

Secrets: Eberron, Dark Heresy, Star Wars, Eclipse Phase, Cyberpunk 2020, GURPS, Consent in Gaming, Tales from the Loop, The Veil, “It’s What My Character Would Do!”, Masks: High Impact Heroics
