I’ve enjoyed the exploratory play episodes.
Unlike APs, that I’m lukewarm to, I find the break down and explanations of mechanics very interesting.

Thank you!

Thanks. They are a bit of work to set up, but it really hits a sweet spot for me too. I like playing or running a game, and I really like taking it apart to see what makes them tick.

I think the next EP we do is going to be Cyberpunk Red.

I enjoyed the show and the game right up until the ending, it felt incomplete.

Like Swords without Master the game is a great tool for teaching people how to cooperatively flesh out a story.

I wonder if it would benefit from an additional set of cards going over the resolution.
1-Queen dies, defenders die, non-defenders live. Each survivor describes their brief epilogue.
2-Queen dies, defenders live, non-defenders die. Each defender describes their brief epilogue.
3-Queen lives, defenders die, non-defenders live. Each survivor describes their brief epilogue.
4-Queen lives, defenders live, non-defenders die. Each defender describes their brief epilogue.
5-Queen dies, defenders live, non-defenders live. Each survivor describes their brief epilogue.
6-Queen lives, defenders live, non-defenders live. Each survivor describes their brief epilogue.
