Episode 35 - In the blood [White Wolf Magazine]

Plasma_Public_Domain_image_from_Pixabay.jpgWhilst a new episode has been long overdue, illness has stalked some of the Midnight Express crew.  What better way to head back into a release schedule than an episode looking at vampire health?  

Casting back to 1994, this episode draws on two White Wolf Magazine articles; from issues 39 and 44 (you'll find some links below if you'd like to purchase copies through Drivethrurpg).  The first covers a condition known as Schere's Disease and the possibilities for your chronicle, whilst the second complementary article explores the C-Factor, that mysterious serum at the heart of vampiric vitae.

Make sure that you drop by our Facebook page, the forum, or send an email (via with your ideas, or to suggest other sources of inspiration for this episode.

In the meantime, you can purchase Issue 39, and Issue 44 from Drivethrurpg (these are affiliate links that help out the podcast).  Stay tuned for new episodes in the very near future.

Episode 34 - It’s a TARP! [LARPing in the oWoD]

mask-2246314_1920.jpgIt's a TARP!  BK and long-time listener Josh join forces to discuss LARPing (live action role-playing) and TARPing (tabletop games that incorporate LARP elements) for the old World of Darkness.  Josh is the Lead Storyteller for Madison Under Siege, a GenCon TARP event that has grown to incorporate not just Vampire, but also Werewolf, Mage, and Hunter - all at one venue.

They discuss LARPing from the GenCon and Camarilla perspectives, with a focus on storytelling, making new players feel welcome, and the types of activities that make LARPing a great experience.  

Drop by our Forum, the podcast Facebook page, and remember to leave an iTunes review.  

The next episode will return to the White Wolf Magazine archive with a medical plot hook for Vampire.

Madison Under Siege uses a collaborative and open development, so Josh has shared links for listeners who would like to find out more.

Episode 31 - Arcadia: the Eternal Rage

tarot-2114403_1920.jpgNo, it's not the latest Onyx Path Kickstarter, but rather an in-depth discussion about White Wolf's three card games by BK and Beckett.  

The show opens with some discussion about The Silver Crown, The Song of Unmaking, and Changeling 20th Anniversary Edition (use the embedded links if you want to buy these; every purchase helps the show).  BK sheds some light on a fantastic new podcast 'Walking Away From Arcadia'.

Beckett interrogates BK about the nature of each card game, the links to the RPG lines, and some tips for those wanting to explore the games further.

You can find the accompanying strategy guides for each game at Drivethrurpg (Vampire: the Eternal Struggle, and Rage).  Join us next month for another White Wolf Magazine episode, with more Mage goodness in the works (and a special guest planned).

Hosts: BK and Beckett.
