What We DoThe Original Box Set are committed to creating narrative and character based actual play podcasts, interactive live streams, and videos. We started with our Shadowrun game, and hope to expand to more role playing games like Pathfinder, Dungeons and Dragons, Marvel, Rogue Trader, and more!
Who We AreWe’re a group of tabletop gamers with an intense passion for storytelling. At our core, Max and Cassi run the games. Between the two of them they have over 30 years of GMing experience! (To be fair, Cassi is close to celebrating her 5th year of running games. Max has been GMing since he was 11 years old.) They take crafting tales very seriously, whether it’s simply changing a module to fit a better character story arc or different game system, or world building an entire campaign setting. From creation myth to geopolitical conflict in their own campaign settings, they want the characters to make their mark on the world. Because of the feedback they’ve received from their players, they decided to start recording game sessions. Since January 2017, they have recorded every single game they’ve ran in the hope to present them as podcasts for others to enjoy.
The majority of our players have been tabletop gamers for decades. We have more than a century of collective role playing experience! Many started in their teens on AD&D, James Bond, Shadowrun 1st and 2nd, Aberrant, and even (gasp!) Rolemaster! They know how to build complex and engaging characters, and they keep the characters they make grounded in their backstory, no matter how powerful they become as they participate in the story.
How can you help?We have big dreams of creating the most entertaining and highest quality podcasts and videos we’re capable of making. We’re just getting started, and ensuring we have the finances to maintain our website domain, podcast hosting, and equipment is our top priority as we begin our journey here on Patreon. With your patronage and support, we will be able to guarantee our continued online presence. With your help, we will not only be able to keep making podcasts and providing hours of entertainment, we will also be able to make it look and sound awesome! As we grow we hope to give back to you patrons for helping us get to where we want to be with rewards, special events, cool swag, and whatever else we can think of in the years to come!
What will your support do?
Milestone 1: Baby Steps! ($30/month) This will cover our operating costs (podcast hosting, website, etc) and ensure our capability to provide you with awesome content! This is the first step, and we really appreciate you helping us achieve it!
Milestone 2: New Actual Play Podcast! ($50/month) Editing recordings take time. As much as we want to release all our material all at once, we want to make sure we have the best product we can create before we present new podcasts to our audience. This milestone will allow us to release a new Actual Play Podcast that is guaranteed to be awesome!
