In the last episode of series 27, we welcome back Alex Flanigan, from the A Horror Borealis and The Cryptid Keeper podcasts, as our special guest co-host, filling in for Amelia due to a family emergency at the time of recording. We also welcome back Ryan’s best friend since the first grade, and current GM for their campaign together using the system we’re covering this series: Beyond the Wall and Other Adventures, a Fantasy RPG by Flatland Games. This episode we’ll be discussing what we thought of the game as well as learning more about our characters during the fanfic portion of the show!Leave us reviews in any, or all, of these places:Character Creation Cast on Apple Podcasts (The best place to leave reviews for us)https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/character-creation-cast/id1363822066?mt=2&ls=1Character Creation Cast on Podchaserhttps://podchaser.com/CharacterCreationCastCharacter Creation Cast on Stitcherhttps://www.stitcher.com/podcast/character-creation-cast?refid=stprCharacter Creation Cast on Facebookhttps://facebook.com/CharacterCreationCastGuests and Projects: Alex Flanigan @Coff33DetectiveTwitter: https://twitter.com/Coff33DetectiveWebsite: https://therealalexflanigan.comPatreon: https://patreon.com/TheCryptidKeeperA Horror Borealis @AHorrorBorealisTwitter: https://twitter.com/AHorrorBorealisWebsite: http://oneshotpodcast.com/actual-play/a-horror-borealis/The Cryptid Keeper @CryptKeepPodTwitter: https://twitter.com/CryptKeepPodWebsite: https://www.lunarlightstudio.com/cryptid-keeperAdam StewardNo social media footprint currently.Games discussed this episode:Beyond the Wall and Other AdventuresDriveThruRPG: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/113405/Beyond-the-Wall-and-Other-Adventures?affiliate_id=1601603Amazon: https://amzn.to/3dk9RefBeyond the Wall Further AfieldDriveThruRPG: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/145675/Beyond-the-Wall--Further-Afield?affiliate_id=1601603Amazon: https://amzn.to/3dhcZr2Beyond the Wall SupplementsDriveThruRPG: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse.php?keywords=Beyond+the+Wall&affiliate_id=1601603Website: https://www.flatlandgames.com/btw/downloads/Timestamps:00:00:00 - Announcements00:04:44 - Introductions00:10:44 - D20 for your thoughts?00:13:14 - What is Adam’s personal process for creating characters?00:14:57 - How does the character creation in this game stack up to others?00:21:31 - How does the process set expectations for playing?00:25:26 - What is the biggest flaw of character creation in this system?00:32:47 - Fanfiction!00:46:26 - Take it up a level!00:57:44 - Episode Closer01:00:44 - Show Blurb: Neoscum01:01:36 - OuttakesTranscriptshttps://charactercreationcast.simplecast.com/episodes/series-273-beyond-the-wall-with-alex-flanigan-and-adam-steward-discussion/transcriptMusic:Opening: Meditation Impromptu 03 (http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Kevin_MacLeod/Calming/Meditation_Impromptu_03) by Kevin MacLeod (http://incompetech.com)Clip 1: Truth of the Legend by Kevin MacLeodLink: https://filmmusic.io/song/4551-truth-of-the-legendLicense: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/Clip 2: Village Consort by Kevin MacLeodLink: https://filmmusic.io/song/4585-village-consortLicense: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/Main Theme: Hero (Remix) (http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Steve_Combs/Principal_Photography_1493/11_Hero_Remix) by Steve Combs (http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Steve_Combs/)Our Podcast:Character Creation Cast:Twitter: @CreationCast (https://twitter.com/CreationCast)Facebook: https://facebook.com/charactercreationcast/Discord: http://discord.charactercreationcast.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/creationcast/Podchaser: https://www.podchaser.com/CharacterCreationCastAmelia Antrim:Twitter: @gingerreckoning (https://twitter.com/gingerreckoning)Website: https://ameliaantrim.wordpress.com/Garbage of the Five Rings podcast: (http://garbageofthefiverings.com/)G5R Twitter: @G5Rpodcast (https://twitter.com/G5Rpodcast)Ryan Boelter:Twitter: @lordneptune (https://twitter.com/lordneptune)Website: https://lordneptune.comChimera RPG: @ChimeraRPG (https://twitter.com/ChimeraRPG)Side Heroes: @SideHeroesPod (https://twitter.com/SideHeroesPod)Patreon: https://patreon.com/RyanBoelterItch.io: https://lordneptune.itch.ioOur Website:http://www.charactercreationcast.comOur Network:http://oneshotpodcast.comNetwork Patreon:https://www.patreon.com/oneshotpodcast
