In this second solo episode, BK focuses on one article in White Wolf Magazine #40 - namely one on Blood Cults for Vampire: the Masquerade.
He breaks the article down, offers advice and background for creating cults in your own Vampire games, and discusses the motivations of would-be cultists to make it more challenging for your players. As the community continues to rub off on him, there is even mention of cross-over games in this episode (without prompting).

BK and Pete step into the neutral ground of Vancouver to explore the tenuous peace between Kindred and Garou. They discuss the book in general, highlight some of the key locations and talk about how this setting (or smaller elements of it) could work in your own chronicle.

BK and Pete delve into the secrets of the second-class citizens in the Masquerade. After establishing the role of the ghoul they explore archetypes (and how you can expand these to create interesting stories and conflict), providing more character to ghouls, and some ideas for all-ghoul chronicles. They finish with a brief explanation of animal ghouls (crocodiles and panthers and piranhas - oh my!) and the possibilities they offer your game.

We're due an episode tomorrow, and it's a good news/bad news scenario. The bad news is that Steve has been really ill and in no fit condition to record a podcast. We're working on setting a date to produce the episode as soon as he's well again.
However, we'd like to make sure that you have something to listen to. If you're new to the podcast, you might not realise that our first work was on a series of four Darklings for the Darker Days podcast, and Mike and Chris were kind enough to not only post them up, but also provide a bit of commentary at the end too.
To tide you over until the next episode of Midnight Express, tune in to the four (yes four!) episodes below and get your monthly fix of gaming goodness from us both. You'll see that our style hasn't changed too much, and there was (even then) a focus on gaming advice.
These episodes are also available via iTunes.
Hosts: Steve & Adrian
