Archive for Actual Play


Fixed the link to our Facebook page ( This gets more traffic and updates these days.

OOTAK Nights Out have become very successful. Last week we had 10 RSVPs and almost all of them showed up. We expect more this week. We usually post upcoming meetings on here.

We’ve finally begun the conversion to YouTube. Our first “video” (basically a logo placard with the audio recording of our session) is up on our channel here.

This page will likely begin to change as I learn more of WordPress and add in aspects of my custom fantasy world in which we play our current D&D 5Ed campaign, Skard. No doubt there will be some bumps and site layout / function mistakes along the way. Sorry.

Deadlands: Reloaded – Session XXIII

Hello OOTAK fans (or haters, whatever the case maybe)!

Are you ready for some more ooey-gooey OOTAK-fu? Do you long to hear the sound of our silken voices dribbling down your eager ear holes? Do you miss the shenanigans that occur (with the regularity of a fiber-rich diet) at OOTAK’s gaming table?

Well you are in luck if you nodded your head in silent acknowledgement to any of the above… OOTAK HQ is mostly proud to bring you another installment in our on going Deadlands campaign!

In This Session: Your favorite band of drunks and misfits find themselves stuck somewhere in the Weird West with a pair of “savages” (no offense native Americans, we love you!) as their guides.

Hope you enjoy this latest installment and cheers!

Deadlands: Reloaded – Session XXII

File this session in the partially lost folder, because, sadly, a good bit of this session was not recorded for some reason. I suspect it had something to do with human error and/or lack of memory card space.

The total running time for this partial session is just over 45 minutes, but fortunately contains some pretty funny table banter towards the end.

I (Patrick) promise to serve up an extra helping of OOTAK goodness in the next week or so with another multi-hour release. Until then, whet your appetites on this little gem for soon, very, very, very soon all shall be revealed!

Deadlands: Reloaded – Session XXI

So he we are again, after short delay…

Ask yourself, are you ready and prepared for more lusty OOTAKness!? Did you  manage to scoop that crusty audio funk out of your earholes from our last Actual Play session?

And finally, but more importantly, are you a masochist?

We only ask, loyal listener, because if you keep coming back for your regularly scheduled OOTAK fix then something must be wrong with you… 🙂

We are over thirty sessions into our current Deadlands campaign, which is an OOTAK record!! Looks like we plan on continuing this campaign into the near future and I think I (Patrick) can speak for the entire crew when I say that it has been a blast!

So sit back, relax and enjoy the latest and greatest (greatest??!!) that we have to offer and please do not forget to leave a comment or two in the section below.




Deadlands: Reloaded – Session XX

Yet another entertaining (mostly) actual play session from the guys at OOTAK.

We are more than twenty sessions into our current Deadlands campaign and still going strong!

Please send all your hate mail to Jayson, he’s a horrible monster and he doesn’t care… no, really, HE DOESN’T CARE!!!

Deadlands: Reloaded – Session XIX

It’s about that time! You know what I’m talking about…

It’s time for some more ooey-gooey OOTAK goodness drizzling down your ear-holes!


Yeah, we know what you want… we know what you need and we got it right here for you!

So enjoy another slice of what we labor so hard to create, devoted OOTAK fans (and haters); pure chaos at the gaming table!


Deadlands: Reloaded – Session XVIII

We here at OOTAK are proud to bring you another great example of what not to do whilst role-playing!

Session XVIII finds our “heroes” fighting for the survival of mankind in the dusty, desolate and haunted environs of the Weird West… oooooohhhh spooookkkkyyyy!

Jayson (our resident Monster-In-Chief) and I (Patrick) are preparing some new Skull & Shackles actual plays for release over at RPGMP3. If you haven’t checked those sessions out, I strongly suggest you do so.

In addition, check out OOTAK’s legendary Traveller sessions if you are really interested in more tips on how to completely derail a campaign!! 🙂


Deadlands: Reloaded – Session XVII

Wow. Two months since our last actual play post!?

A travesty you say? Why yes, yes it is.

However, the last two months have been pretty eventful for your humble sound editor… but things have calmed down and now I have PLENTY of time to make excuses for my laziness and lack of motivation.

Anyway, we at OOTAK, present for your listening pleasure some brand new actual play goodness!





Deadlands: Reloaded – Sessions XV & XVI

Ootak deadlands_smWhats up OOTAK fans? Not much eh? Whats that? You want to know what we are up to here at the OOTAK HQ?

OOTAK’s 2014 has started with a bang! Our new “gaming cave”, courtesy of Twyst, is coming together quite nicely. Much of OOTAK’s forthcoming content will be recorded at Todd’s place, so stay tuned!

Our Deadlands: Reloaded campaign continues with a brand new double Actual Play session. Yes sir! That is two, count em’, TWO, epic game play sessions combined into one!

I know, I know, Patrick is a great guy… and so good looking too! Make sure you tell all your friends, but ladies, yes, I am taken!

Anyway, hope you enjoy another 3+ hours of ooey-gooey OOTAK(u) goodness drizzling all down your earholes!

Cheers and carry on!

A Very OOTAK Christmas… game…

A couple of disclaimers here.

#1: We recorded two sessions, the second (and arguably) and best session has been lost to history. The short of it has to do with a firmware upgrade to my trusty Tascam DR-40 digital recorder that I use to record the bulk of OOTAK’s actual play material.

#2: The audio quality is horrible. I apologize in advance if this AP session isn’t quite listenable. Firmware updates reset everything and that sometimes sucks for the listener.

OOTAK had a blast playing this game and we hope you have as much fun listening to it!

We will be back in a couple of weeks with yet another session in our continuing Deadlands campaign…
