To say there are a few youtube channels around ttrpg’s is an understatement. Many do reviews of products, actual plays, commentary (Brett’s best friend and look-alike, Colville), and some go over the rules. I just thought, maybe there’s a way it can be done a bit ‘better’… or differently.
How 2 RPG is more of a channel that covers rpg subsystems. The idea came to me after seeing how well Gaming & BS’s episode on Gum Shoe is one of our highest viewed shows on Youtube. It was solidified as I played Stars Without Number and we did ship combat. Ship combat made sense after playing a couple rounds. Of course we could read the book, but video can lend commentary, context and quips that help better explain what may not be easily understood via the literary medium.
Want to know how spell duels in DCC works? I’ll talk about that.
The videos are meant to be relatively short and even entertaining. Not sure on the latter.
Ideas are welcome as I fill the list with things to talk about. Are you curious about how something works in one of your favorite rpg’s but haven’t delved into yet? Let me know below in the comments, and don’t forget to subscribe, like and comment. LOL. Yay youtube speak!
