S1E1 – Bucket of Opinions (recorded 6/17/16)
Greetings from Deimos: Easy access to three major spacelanes and a Starbucks!
We talk about the new Kickstarter, help make a great white shark and a snow leopard, and talk unsolicited opinions about HSD.
(Editor note: the first five episodes of the podcast have some “learning curve” in terms of software, equipment, etc. Thanks for your patience!)
♃ 00:59—let’s meet the hosts!
♃ 06:29—do you want to build a snow leopard? How about a great white shark?
♃ 08:30—Ashtaar is a little bit more pro-blip
♃ 09:20—RAW on generic races (the “Bird” option in the Avian family, for example)
♃ 11:21—Whines asks, “is there a definitive species list?”
♃ 14:16—Dexter the poodle guest stars 🙁
♃ 15:05—no love for beautiful snowflakes
♃ 17:31—story hooks for bringing in a great white. How far will your GM bend?
♃ 19:32—do not look at the ninja lantern shark
♃ 21:35—Whines on the streamlined nature of HSD races
♃ 26:33—what were we going to talk about? Oh, HSD.
♃ 28:17—eventually Corbeau wants to talk about FAPP in space (don’t click this at work, or possibly at all)
♃ 30:28—a game about being human in a post-human world
♃ 31:26—enough variety to conceal setting ignorance. Yay!
♃ 34:28—a rules-lightish game.
♃ 39:10—it’s a corp, corp, corp world. Corbeau doesn’t know what a DLC payment is.)
♃ 43:45—Whines and Ashtaar say HSD is a game of social exploration, not star-hopping. Corbeau thinks 1901560000000 square kilometers is a bit claustrophobic.
♃ 52:00—Trying to wrap up!
