Who says gaming can’t be exercise? Lifting heavy games like Red Markets, Eclipse Phase, Base Raiders, and Zweihander can be quite the workout! In this volume of RPPR B-Sides, you’ll find playtests of games in development, unique indie storytelling games and more. You won’t get these actual play episodes on RPPR Actual Play. We record so many games that we can’t fit everything on the podcast but for all you AP fanatics, here’s your chance for even more!
HOW TO GET B-SIDES VOLUME 5: Back the RPPR Patreon at the $10 level or higher by February 3 at 12:00 CST. You will get a download code to receive it for free from Gumroad.com as a message on Patreon shortly after that.
If you miss this special offer, Volume 5 will cost $25 to purchase.
Highlights of Gaming Gains include:
Ross’ first time running Zweihander! The King of Poison features a cast of travelers stranded on a remote island run by an eccentric King who rules through fear and…mushrooms?? Learn the secrets of the island and see if the travelers escape!

This volume of B-Sides will become a free download in February 2022. It took 2 years to gather enough games for this volume, so we are switching to a 2 year interval for future B-Sides volumes.
