yoshi is good egg
Wow the gm sounds so handsome!
I don't know why but he just seems like such a handsome and smart and hilarious guy! Haha great podcast
This Podcast will surprise you in the best ways!
These guys are phenominal.
Starting out, the podcast has some issues. Pacing, sound quality, and overall chemistry are quite strange in the first 3 episodes. They're learning a system, trying to work together, and with a group of 6 - there's no small amount of juggling to make them all fit together.
But as soon as they get comfortable? As soon as they get into the story and start to understand their characters - this podcast is INCREDIBLE.
It's played with the MASKS system by Magpie Games, a super powered teen superhero drama game based in a fantastical setting of Halcyon city. These guys do complete justice to both the system and the setting as they twist and weave themselves from scene to scene and episode to episode.
I sumbled onto them about 3 weeks ago and have since listened to all the episodes four times. If you're curious about Masks and how the system works, or you need your Teen Titans fix - this is your place.
Epoch - the calculating robot with an every increasing human side.
Lightning Rod - the square peg, round hole, hammer kinda girl that punches her problems, with lightning.
Shibuya - the no-powered over-powered ace-in-the-hole Robin type, that keeps the party on their toes.
Reversal - The two-lives sort, hiding his identity from his powers in the hopes that his two lives don't bleed together (spoiler: it lasts about 6 minutes).
Black Cavalier - The angst! All of the angst! Or at least an angsty coating around a soft-boiled humble nerd, trying to keep her head above water in this super powered world.
and Davey Doomzone - The wierdest character imaginable, but completely loveable. I have a feeling everyone who listens will love Doomzone by the end of the first episode.
Join this rag tag group as they discover what it's like to be a hero in a world full of them - and I promise you won't regret it.
