A brand new podcast which unites music and roleplay in beautiful harmony!
What do you mean what?! Music, writing, painting, roleplaying - these are all forms of art, right?
The RnRP crew believes that exploring roleplay's depths will lead us to useful and insightful revelations about the world, ourselves and society. Music is a stimulant for the soul, urging us closer to the unseen realities hidden in our emotes.
a look at the communal origins of roleplay and traditional music
BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE
In this episode, we're going back to our roots by examining the similarities between traditional folk music and roleplay. The RnRP crew believes that exploring roleplay's depths will lead us to useful and insightful revelations about the world, ourselves and society. Music is a stimulant for the soul, urging us closer to the unseen realities hidden in our emotes.
In addition to talking about folk music and roleplay, we're returning to Taage's original setting of White Falls, the RP which began in the previous episode. I will be reprising my role as Miller, alongside Dyna as Brenda Stewart.
We'll also be meeting Ma1function as Jim Ashby, a local high school teacher! (Spoiler: He is amazing.)
smoke rises, horns bellow, men chant and women dance, you've come to the place where pagans play
AN OFFERING TO BRAGI, GOD OF POETRY AND STORYTELLING
Tonight we explore the cultural connections between modern paganism, the heathen music scene and of course, roleplay. Why is it that these old faiths seem so intertwined with roleplaying games?
Stone (aka Urox gro-Othilogar) will share his bardic beliefs and discuss modern heathenry's ties to roleplay.
Afterwards we will continue the ongoing roleplay in Taage/Varlynd's original setting. Dyna and Ma1function will be playing their characters Brenda the housewife and Jim the school teacher/paranormal investigator, and I will return as young drug dealer, Hudson Miller as we attempt to discover the truth about the unnatural horrors lurking in the shadows of White Falls.
a recent study suggests RPers have more empathy than others
AND HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?
In this episode, we discuss empathy and what relation it has to roleplay. Does roleplay refine relatability? Or do empathetic people invest more in roleplay?
We'll then return to our voice RP in White Falls, where Mr Ashby and Miller are seeking out Chief Makhan in order to learn more about the mysterious and malevolent beings which lurk in the town's shadows.
Five who hunger ever With fear they will be fed A mirror's surface ravels The soul's eternal thread
The final hour has come for White Falls. Will Miller discover the truth about what happened to Sara? Will Brenda's horrified family ever trust her again? Will Mr. Ashby force us to listen to more Polka?
Find out how the idyllic Pacific Northwest town of White Falls fares as our unlikely (to put it mildly) heroes (HA) become its sole defenders in a climactic showdown with the otherworldly skin-walkers. Also, the RnRP hosts discuss specific RPG settings (Azeroth! Tamriel!) and consider how roleplay differs within each.
