    The thing Paul posted about the Bookwyrms book club podcast for me to thinking 🙂

     

    We have almost 900 individual recordings on RPGMP3. What would you guys think if I suggested one ever week (either at random or by choice).

     

    Then we can listen to it over the week and talk about it. System / gameplay / player discussions and all that stuff.

     

    What do you think?

    I think that sounds like way too much responsibility for me. I mean, all I accomplish on this site is barely tolerable nonsense. Now I have to both remember to listen to a particular audio file and then form intelligent conversation about it? Egads! Is there anything not wrong with that picture?

     

    In all seriousness I’m totally down. I think it’s not only going to bring about interesting discussions but also could serve as a great way to expand the libraries of people looking for new things to listen to. I know there are audio gems I have completely missed because they came out at a busy time, are buried in the massive vaults of time, or simply didn’t have a description that captured me at that moment of browsing through them. Besides, I’m always looking for new writing projects these days.

    The only slight problem I can see with picking a session entirely at random is that it might not make very much sense taken in isolation if it’s from a fair way into a longish campaign. On the other hand, choosing the first session of everything means that some real gems are going to be overlooked… Tricky.

     

    Maybe start with a few first sessions and then pick something more random once the club has settled down and found its feet.

    One way to counteract this might be for the group (or anyone who can remember) to give a “so far in …” hence filling in the relevant background and in-jokes

    Although to do this without giving massive spoilers might be tricky

    Like it! 🙂

    Where would we discuss it? The site chat room or G+ could be hard as they simultaneous things and we’ll have time zone differences, so I imagine there would be a dedicated thread?

    We could just make it a forum discussion perhaps? To counteract the time zones and allow everyone who wanted to to participate.

     

    I agree random might be a bit difficult so we might want to concentrate on first sessions and one off initially 🙂

     

    If we used the forum the discussion could just be in the thread for the audio – would also help to expand discussion about the sessions 🙂

    I think it is an interesting Idea and might help get some activity going on the forums.

    Seems like considerable interest, then. Why not pick a group at random then select an episode to discuss and make a post about it now, Hal?  🙂

    Sounds like a plan 🙂 I can set the current selected audio as featured in downloads as well 🙂

     

    (rolls dice) And we have……

     

    Yorkton… 🙂

     

    So lets do Jade Regent Session 01 and talk about it over here in the Jade Regent Session 01 Forum

     

    Go listen and discuss…
