Day 27: Share a great stream/actual play
I’m a big fan of the idea of streaming RPGs, but somehow it’s not something I would watch myself. So I only have two collections of recorded streams to offer that I played in myself. The first is the YouTube playlist of the run of Dungeon World we had, clocking in at just a little under 35 hours (which does include our breaks) and 13 sessions. It was my first time playing an Apocalypse World Engine game, and while I had read the book before, it never ‘clicked’ with me until I got to play. It got chaotic fast, mostly because we didn’t really ‘gel’ as a group with a common mission, and the campaign ended with us burning down another village — and we just never got around to the next session because it had run its course.
The second is the YouTube playlist of the run of The Sprawl we had. This one is much shorter, with only 8 videos and under 25 hours. I like this one a lot better, because The Sprawl has a good mission-based structure (which comes natural for cyberpunk!), so you had a much more ‘modular’ experience. And in between, we had quite a bit of cool character play, both individually and between characters. Unfortunately, this didn’t ever reach a conclusion either, because we were kinda burned out playing on-stream: it’s quite something to be performing to an audience and for the other players for about three hours!

Do you keep track of the hours you spend on each game?

No, I don't. I do track sessions, but not how long each of those session were. But in this case, there's a YouTube playlist and I have an extension in my browser that tells me the total length of the playlist!
