Hello Internet! Welcome to our first-ever episode of Ugly Talk, a show wherein we discuss RPGs, film, computer games, and the important elements that make each of these things work and how we can tie them back to the traditional games media.
This week we are discussing the Lovecraft-Inspired letter-writing RPG De Profundis, a rules light GM-less storytelling game by Cubicle Seven which attempts to recreate the epistemological psychodramas of H.P. Lovecraft by way of actually writing letters to fellow players. We discuss this no-boundaries collaborative experience and how it has worked in our other games and take advice from TV writing to make sure that collaborative games don't go off the rails.
