So I finished watching season 2 of the Punisher last week on Netflix. Quite good, I enjoyed it even more than the first season. If you are a fan of gritty crime stories with heavy doses of violence and interpersonal drama, you owe it to yourself to watch it. 

One thing that stood out for me in this show is how they manage to capture the high-adrenaline action without falling into campy action movie "invincible hero" issues. Growing up in the 90's, I had no shortage of those. Commando, Bloodsport, Under Siege, Total Recall, The Punisher (with Dolph Lundgren)... all movies (good ones, mind you) that glorify being the action hero by making him this invincible killing machine. You want to be that hero, it's classic escapism. 

Netflix' Punisher? Not so much. 

Holy crap, do I not want to be Frank Castle. The show walks this fine line between giving you the visceral action you crave, while also showing you the horrific aftermath of said fights. On several occasions, you see a character having to remove bullets from bleeding wounds, stitch up the mess, and hope it doesn't tear open during the next fight. All while groaning in white-hot pain. It's still unrealistic (he'd be dead after his first fight in any sane world), but it shows a side of action you don't often see. So yeah, congrats to the show's creators for being able to impart that lesson. Intense action is fun, but holy crap do I want no part in it in real life. 

What were your thoughts on the show?
  • Listening to: Carbon Based Lifeforms
  • Reading: The Hobbit

Last Saturday's play-test went great! Got lots of useful information and I will be making changes to the rules system for the next play-test. I'm going to be writing up a little "lessons learned" entry soon. Stay tuned!
Still on track for the first PT playtest this weekend. The premise? The players are asked to investigate the disappearance of ancient elven artifacts from the Clockwork City museum of History. 

What nefarious shenanigans are afoot? Stay tuned!
First playtest of the Peculiar Tales role-playing game will take place on March 24th. This is my first time testing the nearly complete rules. I will be sure to write you all about it once testing is done!
Interesting roleplaying game design discovery: Once your rules are nicely laid out, expect to have to gut them once you start thinking character creation.
