What is the highest quality /tg/ related Youtube channel and why is it Bardic Broadcasts?

Can anyone possibly match this dorf loving son of a bearded neck?

Hm... personally, I'm rather impressed with Alfabusa's work. Nothing you'd take seriously or acclaim as the best /tg/ channel there is, but Production Quality is decent enough that it gets an honorable mention.

>> No.49813452

I couldn't really get into Court of Swords.

I like the setting Adam put together and the players individually, but the way the characters interacted together just felt really off for me. But, that may just be because they were still getting use to the character's voices.

I'm wondering if season 2 (week 9+ ) would be a decent jumping on point.

ItmeJP and Roll20 games are probably my favorite. They both seem to have the best video/audio quality which I appreciate.

I liked the pre TPK court of swords, but haven't watched much after Geoff joined, is it better?

>> No.49815253

>I couldn't really get into Court of Swords.

Yeah, me neither. The setting was neat, but then I just lost interest. I think I'm just burnt out on 5e. There are so many weird and interesting games out there, I don't want to watch people just playing
5e anymore, I know the system by heart now, and any time it comes to rules or character creation I doze off.

Which makes me extra disappointed that the check from Wizards apparently arrived, and now the official Roll20 stream is all "Check out the latest 5e Adventurer's League Modules!" constantly. The Apocalypse World 2e one shot was nice break, but it was just a one shot, and now we're back to more of the regularly scheduled 5e D&D modules that I couldn't care less about.

I think depression killed him and his zombified husk just does let's plays and like a yearly Reb Brown film where Reb Brown is like a 15 second cameo or something.

He probably has run out of stories and shit and probably can't get a group together anymore. I feel bad for him really. He should honestly do more content as like produced videos and stop interacting with his fan base. It's really not doing him much good clearly.

Also agree with this guy >>49822732

Most of the original guys started to fuck off, those that stayed tended to isolate themselves from the rest of the community. That combined with the fact that one of the sub-groups was larger than the rest combined whilst also being hated by some of the older people basically caused the place to implode.

Source: me, an original Alfa Legion person who still does stuff for TTS.

Basically what happened is that the Veterans, which were a group of people back in the olden days who made Alfa Legion content (videos, mainly, although we also worked on an RPGMaker game, got halfway through, and fractured because of interpersonal conflict and a waning lack of interest) and voice acting (Karl, Fresh, etc), basically sort of split off from the Legion proper since the majority of it was/is cancerous shitposting.

What happened next was that a group of people within THAT group decided to try to take the Alfa Legion away from the memery, and actually come up with lore for it's home sub-sector of Scandavus (which is basically a parody of, well, Scandinavia). This is where things got bad, because this caused inter-personal conflict because people tried to make roleplaying groups, where important/noteworthy members of the Legion got to run their own factions.

This divided the community up further, got people SUPER butthurt, and a falling out of multiple parties meant that the lore project fell apart, with most of the content creators either giving up on the Alfa Legion as a thing, or working on Text-To-Speech.

Basically, the people who still make videos are Eliphas the Inheritor, Bruva Alfabusa, Karl the Deranged, and Gunner (try Inquisitor Gunner, although his videos are kind of outdated). ThunderPsyker makes retrospective reviews of the Dawn of War games, Fresh does voicework for Alfa, Karl, Eliphas, and Thunder, as do Anchors and Dr. White.

Same. It gets more entertaining when Geoff joins (not surprising), but I still keep getting the feleing that Adam made a really interesting setting and the party could still just be from literally any generic D&D setting. No one has really engaged with it. And the constant running away and failing to accomplish anything in the first season just got kind of boring to watch.

Right now I'm hoping the Blades campaign is good.

>> No.49841892


And he also seems to think that knowing a lot (in his mind) about medieval weapons and armor means that his opinions on anything else have any value whatsoever.

Watch the "In defense of the English alphabet" or whatever he called it, where he literally makes up how he thinks a Chinese dictionary works and then argues against it. Completely from his ass. Or listen to him talk about climate change.

>> No.49842177


Oh man. He completely misses the point why people complain about spelling in English, and then gives that terrible made up example you mentioned. I guess he sort of addresses the real complaint later on though, but his defense is still basically "yeah it's fucked up, but at least our dictionaries aren't crazy like the ones chinks have"

I too like RPPR.
They're just about the only actual play group(s) I can bear to listen to.

Well, most of them, anyway, and many of their hangers on.

I think basically, having Caleb Stokes as a formally educated story writer does great, great things for the level of plot and characterisation that those games tend to have, especially when he GMs.

Tom, on the other hand, is the epitome of the irritating autist RPG player in roughly half of the games he's in.
