Returning for a secnd episode, Frozen Fallout gets comfy onboard the Midnight Express to share insights gleaned from the recent successful GenCon event 'Madison Under Seige'. As BK enjoys a cup of Earl Grey, Josh provides advce covering:

  • Secrets as part of a character's 'beginning equipment' 
  • Motivating players to stay 'in character' at the table (and in the LARP)
  • Pacing your story and planning for low energy or player fatigue
  • The qualities of a good Storyteller (for both LARP, and table-top), and
  • What to do if your game should be labelled 'CAUTION: Story frequently sideways'

The duo then turn their collective attention on the Storyteller's Vault, discussing considerations for new authors (especially relating to price points, and how we value free content), and then finish up with a brief overview of the latest titles for release at Drivethrurpg.
