THE ONE RING™ RPG Actual Play "Most Excellent Fireworks"

 

THE ONE RING™ Starter Set Adventure "Most Excellent Fireworks"

Watch our third adventure HERE. A strange invitation from Bilbo Baggins, mentioning that he’s in need of help. Most odd! But then again, a great many things about that particular Hobbit have been odd ever since that business with the Dragon. Nothing wrong with taking a stroll and helping old Bilbo out I suppose. After all, it's not like there's any real dangers to worry about here in the Shire...

CY_BORG RPG Actual Play "Reaper Repo"

 


CY_BORG RPG Actual Play "Reaper Repo" - Victory Condition Gaming

CY_BORG is a cyberpunk spinoff game based on and compatible with multi-award-winning apocalyptic heavy metal RPG MÖRK BORG. This is to noise, industrial and underground hiphop what MÖRK BORG is to doom and black metal. Rules-light, rage-heavy. A fever-dream of tech, punk and fury. Of fighting a failed future. A deck-hacking, brick-throwing upheaval of a game. A game about climate collapse, out-of-control consumerism, the commodification of personal data, late-stage capitalism, transhumanism and senseless violence. 160 pages of cybernetic upheaval. CY_BORG RPG is a messed-up mirror image of MÖRK BORG RPG. Similar in tone and approach to game and book design but enhanced and augmented. Includes an introductory scenario and ≈60 random tables for your every cyberpunk need.

Watch our Cy_Borg actual play HERE.

Join us as we chat with Death In Space co-designers Christian Plogfors & Carl Niblaeus. We'll discuss the origin of the game, the design process and possible future plans. Watch our interview HERE.

Pirate Borg is a scurvy-ridden, rules-light, art-heavy tabletop RPG. Inspired by history, fantasy, horror, and rum. Your cutlass & flintlock won't save you from the hordes of skeletons, the Kraken, or even your own crew.

VCG was lucky to have Luke give time to our show for two sessions. In the first session, Luke and Doug talked all about Pirate Borg and answered questions from our VCG Discord community. You can watch that session HERE.

Then for the second session, we got the Chaotic Good Cast together to play a one-shot GM'ed by Luke! You can watch the second session HERE.

In this video, I take you through the book, tell you what I like about it and let you know if it still is going to be one of my favorite RPGs of the year.
