Hello and welcome to the newest RPG Academy podcast series - The GM Master Class.  In this series, we will be conducting a deep dive into an actual play series with the GM of that game/series - think of it as listening to a Director's Commentary track on a favorite movie. For this first series we are joined by GM Jim McClure and are returning to Rokugan to deep dive into the first of our Legend of the 5 Rings cross over series with One Shot.  In this episode we break down the first half of the 2nd episode one the L5R game originally featured on The One Shot Podcast. You can find links to the original, un edited version of the series here. If there is positive feedback from these episodes we will look to do more.  Let us know what you think! Comments and Feedback are always welcome.

      Hello and welcome to the Trial of MASKS: The Next Generation.  Masks is a powered by the Apocalypse game from Brendan Conway @ Magpie games.  It's designed to tell angsty teenage super hero stories. Think of it as Young Justice the RPG and you're not wrong. (side note, if you do like Young Justice, and you really should - please go check out Whelmed, The Young Justice Files Podcast.  It's really good!   In this episode, our characters jump straight into the action as as known Super villain - RAMPAGE has just leapt out of the Rook Industries building and our team of heroes are on the scene quickly (some more than others). Our players for this game: Michael (@therpgacademy) - As Marisol aka: Toro (The Bull Playbook) Caleb (@TheCalebG) as Rex (the Transformed Playbook) Dakota (@Punchvestigate) as Hornet (The Protege' Playbook) Taylor (@Leviathanfiles) as Sure Shot (The Beacon Playbook)   Here are the links to the free resources to play MASKS    Enjoy!   Comments and Feedback are always welcome.
