The “screenwriter’s bible” book, the author and title of which Vox couldn’t remember? It’s “The Anatomy of Story: 22 Steps to Becoming a Master Storyteller” by John Truby.
In which Vox and Mr. Johnson begin a new series of episodes about running a Shadowrun campaign. Includes a new critter corner, storytime, and a review of Gun H(e)aven 3.
In which your hosts Vox and Mr. Johnson discuss the face. A new Critter Corner, and another new segment!
In which Vox and Mr. Johnson uncover the many ways of the adept. Not just for martial artists anymore, the adept can be one of the most versatile or specialized characters in Shadowrun. Also included, a new listener-submitted runner story and a new segment.
In which Vox and Mr. Johnson discuss the role of the rigger. A new critter corner segment covers barghests: how to survive an encounter with them, or how to best inflict them upon your unsuspecting players! Also, a correction on spirits, who are in fact difficult to take down with normal weapons after all.
