This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Good YouTube Actual Plays?
« on: September 10, 2021, 03:22:13 AM »
Any recommendations for good Actual Plays? I can't get into Critical Role so I'm looking for something that is not that.

I will give anything a listen at least once

  I do not remember any that engaged me all that well.  I do have a link to a guy who blogs a record of games he has game mastered.   If you have a bit of time, they make for interesting reading.

Inwils does actual-plays of Mythras (RQ6) and M-Space (sci-fi Mythras), amongst regular videos, which are the ones I watch.

He has at least a few with Loz, one of the Mythras designers, running the game; if nothing else, those are probably worth a try.

Here they're playing Lyonesse, which is a licensed stand-alone Mythras game:

I really enjoy THAC0 Tuesdays:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCXy5RnfhYuqEqwJMYxsztX16EUOeraEo

They run B/X D&D (via Old School Essentials) with a semi-rotating cast of players.   There are a few somewhat semi-famous players in a few of the episodes, but don't worry, it's nothing like Critical Role.   B/X's death at zero HP rule goes a long way to ensure that.  :)

Episode one is the weakest episode, but still enjoyable.  Alison Haislip, who I liked on G4, is a bit boring in the first episode.  But by the time Paula Deming joins the show, it has turned into the best OSR actual play series I've yet seen.  Give a few episodes a try, particularly if you're a B/X D&D fan.

Not sure about your criteria for a "youtube actual play" , but the 3TRPG posts their audio podcast on youtube.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEBmwjWus7YeAjChiEvPVBQ
and sometimes they release "lets play" podcast episodes.
