[PODCAST] Starcraft RPG Actual Play: Taskforce Echo 04

March 28, 2017 | Posted by John Bates

Greetings Terrans,

Welcome back to the adventures of Taskforce Echo and their journey through the Koprulu sector. We’ll be picking up with their mission to retrieve the good doctor Stettman, and their search for answers regarding the Sons of Creation’s use of Terrazine and how they were gathering it. First they have to escape the teeth of the local fauna, and perhaps exposure to Terrazine. On another topic, some of you may have noticed that there’s a little bit of a musical sub-theme to this campaign, in how I use songs and music to help set scenes and create moods. I find that music, especially recognizable music, is one of the fastest ways to create emotion because of how we process the art, and settings like StarCraft, which are in a time in the far future, but where we came from our Earth, allow for me to use modern music as something classic that has survived or been derived from. Props to anyone who figures out the song I got the lyrics used in this episode from.

Good Hunting,
William AKA ShadowChorus
