Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)
Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.
Death Robot Dungeon Bastards - The LP as Game
Shellhead wrote: I like the concept, but I got out of vinyl in 1990. Keying encounters to tracks on an LP seems problematic unless there is a limited number of tracks. Might work better with a CD, but still a hassle where you would need to skip through a bunch of tracks to get to the right one. Would be even better as one of those Youtube videos that offers a setlist that links to the starting point of each song.
It's actually available for digital purchase and the tracks are all on YouTube already to help facilitate that kind of cherry picking. However in reality most encounters are going to play out at a pace that means they outstrip the length of individual tracks. In that sense it's fortuitous that the LP as a whole is an extended variation on themes and tones set out by the opening 'overture' and in all likelihood will loop throughout your journey as a less specific ambient layer. It's also great to listen to on its own and the growl of those synths is so much more visceral on wax.
