Welcome to All Along the Watchtower! This is a DCAU Rewatch podcast hosted by Zack and featuring Graham, Mitch and Cameron along with any friends we manage to drag along for the ride. We will be examining the landmark television universe masterminded by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, among others, from Batman: The Animated Series in 1992 all the way to Justice League: Unlimited in 2006 and everything in between.
Behold! There, in the window of the comic’d shop! Why, it’s the second issue of Legends of the Watchtower, our actual play bonus podcast of the roleplaying game Masks! Yes, dear reader-listeners, the tale of teens continues in this audio file. MARVEL as our young heroes live their un-masked lives--TREMBLE as Mitchell introduces an accidentally, extremely convoluted piece of background information that might be relevant two story arcs from now--EMPATHIZE with our heroes, as they endure advice and admonishment from their elders! Those are the three verbs you may do. Wait, no, you can also WAIT PATIENTLY for our heroes to roll some dice! (I swear one of them rolls at some point. Listen, it’s just easy to get caught up in the scene, folks.)
The oft-alluded-to secret bonus project arrives! Join us, friends, as Zack, Graham, Cameron, and Emily embark on a tabletop adventure cooked up in the E-Z bake oven that is Mitchell's mind. We're playing Masks, a narrative-first roleplaying system designed by Brendan Conway which captures the spirit of everyone's favorite teen-team superheroism. I'm talking your Young Justice, your Runaways, your New Mutants; come and listen, as our hosts step into the sneakers of Halcyon City's empowered and angsty youth! One of the heroes has a rude tude--but I won't spoil which one! That's all the info you get in this blurb, suckers. You gotta listen to the episode itself for the good stuff.
