Just gearing up to my first games session with the game. Does anyone have any Actual Play recordings they've shared publicly that they're proud of?

Re: Problems of Setting

There are plenty of reasons why there's Commodore 64s AND robots. And some groups will demand a better answer than "there just is". I don't see a conflict. Robots/AI are not the same as Commodore 64s. What if there's no precursor. We discovered AI and we were able to replicate it. But its real AI. ...

Re: Kids

I'd be the first to say there's no such thing as "BadWrongFun" but if Death is the only threat, then I think you're missing out. I remember playing Call of Duty a few years ago and there were just some levels I couldn't complete. So, after the 147th time of failing a level, I enabled God Mode and go...

During the most recent test of the loops, a  frequency was emitted which if it had been 2016, would have completely w...

This seed is called "COIN HEIST" https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/swedish-coins-3634812.jpg The kids are going to the local video games arcade as usual and wasting their pocket money (something I can say as an adult but, hey, I did it too). They notice a guy in the arcade they've not seen before. He ...

I really love this idea! 
Actually, for more on that, watch the Netflix Original movie, SPECTRAL. or Dirk Gently Holistic Detective Agency. Also on Netflix.

Re: Seeds - little snippets to inspire

Death can and should be used in game. Look at "Stand By Me" and "Stranger Things", I just don't think it should be used against the player characters (others disagree).  Death and Loss are powerful motivators. Imagine a short scenario where an older sibling dies in a electrical-magnetrine accident. ...
