Out of the BAG - Super-Secret Sneak Peek!
Posted 25 April 2012 - 09:20 AM
Does that sound like the beginning of a joke? Well, it's not! Ross "The Nimbic" McSillybugger has decided to GM a game for a bunch of neophyte gamers and record it for our listening pleasure, and what the BAGuettes lack in experience, they most certainly make up for in sheer unadulturated energy. Ross even turns out to be a competent GM and herder of cats. :-)
Allow me to introduce the newcomers, who seem oddly reminiscent of their senior counterparts:
Kai (AKA Mini-Ross): The Son of Nimbic, this fine young gentleman has an even shorter attention span than his (in)famous father, but compensates by cranking the randomly-violent-silliness-meter up to 11.
Max (AKA Mini-Steve): This dude will be familiar to people who have listened to the previous recordings from the BAG Junior Division (Patron exclusive, so dig through your pillowcases and couches for £5, if you want to hear it). Youngest scion of a long line (well, a lineage of one person, i.e. his dad, Steve D) of Rock'n'Roll GMs, Mr Max seems to have inherited his dad's rules acumen - yet he has decided to ally himself with Kai the Nimbic Jr.
This can only end badly...
Emma (AKA Mini-Tina): Frankly, I have no idea if she's related to Tina by blood, but she certainly possesses much of the same spirit! Anyone who's attended public school will have learned a vital life lesson: Girls Don't Fight Fair - and Emma's well-placed kidney punches are the only attitude adjustments that can keep Kai in check.
Dylan (AKA The Quiet Guy): Perhaps it would be more accurate to call him The Less-Noisy-Than-The-Other-Three-Calamities Guy. He could easily turn into a Mini-Alec or a Mini-Wayne, or he might even be a person all his own, that overbearing twats like me can't label with such flippant ease; only time will tell.
Also, I've never heard roleplayers sing quite so much and so readily as this lot - to paraphrase Emma: "The thing I'll remember most from this episode, is when we were all standing on our chairs singing: Dooo the crowbar dance! Dooo the crowbar dance!"
There's a very real chance we might get a musical episode from these people - I'll certainly bet you dollars to donuts that if somebody writes a fan-FILK about Kai's cat-man ninja character (Robin the Invisibilist - spelling optional, I would imagine ), Kai would be prepared to stand proud & sing it loud, on audio.
Okay, enough chinwaggin', go listen to the audio samples already (Click the image above, please). If you'll excuse me, I've got to find my metronome - the FILKing muse beckons!

Ross? With your permission, sir, I could upload one of the episodes on YouTube (maybe #1 or #0, character creation) in full length as an additional appetizer for people, until Hal has time to get them out as a podcast – similar to what Hal & the RPGMP3 Pros are doing on their video feed, but with just a static image.

(Apologies for the shitty video quality, YouTube isn’t happy with >150 MB files, apparently - if there's any problems with sound quality on your end, as well, let me know)
