RP_OK 3: Everyone Will Listen To Reason

Character Creation and Evolution.

With the launch of Fallout 4, it’s the perfect time to discuss characters and character creation. Ben, Zack, and Chris have plenty to say about character builds, from Fallout to Skyrim to Mass Effect, and the ways that a narrative can influence a player’s character creation experience.

After that, we bring tabletop games into focus, and the ways a character can grow and expand and change as time passes, and as they live through new experiences.

Then Chris brings up Dwarf Fortress, and all bets are completely off — you’ll have to listen in for yourself!

Discussed today:

Dwarf Fortress, Bay 12 Games


Boatmurdered, a Dwarf Fortress Let’s Play

Ben Lee
With a wide variety of interests ranging from baseball to theater and dance to technology to writing, Ben has given up on being good at any one thing and settled for being not half bad at a handful of things instead. He can usually be found cleaning up paperwork after a motley but wonderful crew of retail technicians; failing that, you can generally find him on the RP_OK Podcast at the Ace of Geeks, or on the San Francisco Giants-centric TortureCast. His Steam shame list is quickly growing legendary, and it's quite rare he's playing or watching anything made in the last five years.
