Episode 8: Dying for Your Flaws


Hello boys and girls!

It's Wednesday and that means a brand new NW Nerdcast. Today Ron, Chloe, and Mike are talking about the importance of having flawed characters in a tabletop game and we ask the question, how long should a character live in a LARP?

  • 1:00 Flawed characters in a tabletop
  • 18:20 Chloe's event calendar
  • 20:16 How long should a LARP character live?

    Another great podcast! I’ve gotten into the habit of looking for them every Weds, and have yet to be disappointed. Keep up the good work folks!

    I love picking flaws that do not have statistical penalties, but provide rp opportunities. 7th Sea had a great system that you gained xp when your flaw or background comes up in the game. Penalties punish, but rewards encourage.. So that is my preference for table top games.

    Thanks for the comments. Kyle, glad you are enjoying the show. We really look forward to the future of this project. Taylor, that system sounds really cool. Haven’t had the pleasure of playing 7th Sea but I will check it out.
