February 9th, 2018 | Robin


Brace yourself for musical metaphors as we head into the Gaming Hut and find that Patreon backer Brian Thomas has left us the logical analogy Orchestra: jazz combo :: play’s ensemble cast : role playing gaming group.

In Ken and/or Robin Talk To Someone Else, Ken and Robin talk to Delta Green writer and illustrator Dennis Detwiller.

In the Narrative Hut backers Andrew Miller and Dan O’Hanlon team up to ask just what Robin means when he calls coming-of-age stories the Worst Genre.

Then the Consulting Occultist admits backer Hoyle Anderson to his Edwardian snuggery for a cuppa and discussion of zodiac cup tasseography.

    Hello! I’d love to hear the sessions Dennis ran for RPPR, but I can’t seem to find them. On what dates were they posted? Many thanks!

    • Csaba Gabor Toth says:

      I believe he posted them under his Patreon account – just search Dennis Detwiller on Patreon and if you like what you see, jump in! It’s worth it!

    I must say that I’m deeply impressed with Ken’s ability to complete the Narrative Hut without uttering the phrase “No True Scotsman” even once.

    How can Ken be so knowledgeable about zodiac cup tasseography and yet know nought of making a cup of tea? Oh yes, he’s a damn yankee!
    Warm the pot, put the leaves in the pot, add the water to the pot then strain as you pour it out (as indicated by Paul Snow above)
    And if you really want to get it right*, here’s the British Standard for making tea

    just remember that according to Marx, proper-tea is theft

  4. Phil Masters says:

    I get the impression that once upon a time, the general feeling was that tea strainers were for wusses; you just refrained from draining the pot to the dregs when pouring from the pot. Hence, you’d always get some leaves in a cup, but hopefully not too many – about right for divination purposes.
