Post New web-series focuses on role playing.

Hey everyone!

Will Wheaton has come up with a new webshow called "titan's grave". It promises to focus on the art or role playing rather than just the crunch.

Episode 0 is now available here:
http://geekandsundry.com/titansgrave-chapter-0/

It will be a weekly webcast. Judging from the promotional footage I've seen previously, the show promises to be a great example of high-standard role-playing with an emphasis on story and character development. I hope you dig it.

Episode 0 was a lot fun, looking forward to episode 1 which I paused to make this post. Thanks for sharing, Blaise.

I'm watching episode 1 now too. Takes a few minutes to get good but once it's good...it's really good.

And I just watched episode 2 http://geekandsundry.com/titansgrave-chapter-2/. Five gold and a party may become a standard request from me when negotiating quest rewards.

Love it! It should be a level 1 Chronicle Sheet boon!

Episode three came out this week. Things are heating up.

BTW: I was chatting with a few folks about the mood of the game so far. So far, it feels more "Bravestar" than "Thundarr the Barbarian" to me. That said, I hope to see a slightly darker turn occur as the episodes unfold. In Episode Three the tone changes dramatically! Very enjoyable so far.

That would easily become my favourite boon if it happened. I can't believe that I missed that episode 3 was also up. I agree, I really like the way the story turned in episode 3, I think it's the best installment so far. Watching Titan's Grave is making me pine for some character driven roleplay where the players help the GM drive the story and character development is front and center in the game.

The surprising show of emotion towards the end of the episode was quite moving. I have to credit the actors on the show, it takes a fair degree of skill to make watching people roll dice entertaining but I am starting to feel that the combat encounters are becoming a bit of drag. Nonetheless, the personal significance of the final encounter to one of the characters did make it satisfying to watch.

Interesting points there. Some things I noticed.

1) I agree, the emotional impact was pretty hefty. Part of it has to be the way Will delivered the news in a secretive and dramatic fashion. It was a very clever move.
2) Re Combat - yep. Two similar encounters back-to-back seemed unnecessary. That said, the final encounter felt pretty epic. In most games, fighting a BBEG is just a dog pile. But the whole set-up of the final encounter plus some great description by the GM made an otherwise standard fight seem a lot more cinematic than most fights of its kind.

Just watched chapter 5. Episodes seem to be getting longer, not that I'm complaining, I'm really enjoying the way that Wil goes about tinkering with the game mechanics for the sake of story telling.
