#RPGaDAY2020 day 14 ~ Banner

Late again. It’s my 6:30 AM on 8/15. In less than an hour Anthony, Eloy, Robin, and I will be playing another session of our “ The Sky is no Limit” Leagues of Adventure Campaign. As usual, this will be streamed live on the Triple Ace Games Facebook page with the Banner of TAG displayed on the Zoom screen.

There are a lot of good games out there, but a handful of them receive the lion’s share of attention. When you find a real gem, sometimes one of the best things you can do for the communist to fly the banner of the RPG and the company behind it. One of the ways we have to do just that is to not just talk about these RPGs, but to play them in public by sharing the sessions online. The Sky is no Limit LOA sessions get live streamed by Robin (who is half of TAG so of course he’s flying the banner!) , and then released on Anthony’s “Runeslinger” channel.

But we aren’t just flying the banner of Leagues of Adventure and Triple Ace Games. One of the things we try to do is to show real examples of Actual Play. Not the polished and glossy AP streams where the players are all charismatic and charming, the video is perfect, and everything is just awesome and larger than life. Instead we fly the Banner of what playing a particular game is really like. Rules lookups, learning the system, no thought to performance or how things look, and using simple streaming and video conference software (which is not fundamentally part of the table top RPG experience, but when your players live across the globe it becomes so).

15 minutes to showtime. I had better quit writing this and get ready to fly those banners.
