Melting Plot is an actual play RPG podcast where we play as a randomly selected group of characters from among popular movie, TV, or video game franchises. We put those characters into a catastrophic scenario to see how they handle life at the end of the world. Each season features a brand new story with new characters - which are determined by rolling from a list which includes characters from movies like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, the Matrix, and Aliens - video games like Mario, the Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and Halo - and TV shows such as Stranger Things, the Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, the X-Files, and Battlestar Galactica. We play each season until the characters survive the catastrophe or die trying. All music was written and produced by Zachary James Kolkman.

Another Actual Play Table Top

After three episodes I'm hooked. Many actual play podcasts are hard to listen too because the sound is aweful. Not with this one. Each person has their own mike and the recordings have ben well mixed.

The system used, while not D&D is Genesys by Fantasy Flight Games. Using the narrative dice the players and GM use the mecanics of the dice to help shape the story while keeping the role playing aspect in the front seat. The players don't wait for the GM to say "what do you do" they move forward and get right into the story. Again, editing is good as there are not a lot of hard cuts while players interpret the dice but also not a lot of dead air either.

Finally while the concept is not my cup of tea, the players and GM have totaly drawn me into the story. They play to their characters so far in season 1 and the GM does a good job of telling the story. I would highly reccomend giving this podcast a shot.

Excellent Story!

I'll be honest, I wasn't sure about this at first. Blending different characters from different properties in one story? Maybe. Done well? Prove it!

And they did. Each and every episode they did. And then they went above and beyond. I am seriously attached to these characters and can't wait to hear what happens next. Keep up the good work!

Great fun, excellent Genesys tutorial

This podcast is great fun. I love the conceit of throwing Sarah Connor into an adventure with Pepper Potts and Tony Soprano. (Those aren't the actual characters this season, but half the fun is finding out who shows up.) The production values are great, and the players and GM spin a good yarn. It's also a good listen for folks who want ideas of how to interpret dice pools in Genesys during play.
