Deadlands: Reloaded – Sessions XIII & XIV

Ootak deadlands_smI know! I know! The OOTAK crew, especially the guy responsible for posting new content, are a tribe of horrible and despicable monsters! We, and when I say “we” I mean “Patrick”, do not update this site with new content often enough. It’s a horrible cycle that we someday hope to break… someday!

Things have been cray-cray here at the OOTAK HQ! Jobs! Moving! New girlfriends! Gamer caves! Trust us, it’s been an exciting and hectic time.

The good news is that we are ready, willing and able to bring you some brand new actual play goodness to drizzle down your ear-holes in 2014! In fact, this is a special double release actual play.

Yep, that’s right! Nearly 4 hours of all-new OOTAK goodness (with lots and lots of side banter) all at once, all for you!

Enjoy loyal listeners (all 4 of you!) and have a great 2014!

Deadlands: Reloaded – Session XII

Ootak deadlands_smSo, after yet another long hiatus, the OOTAK crew is back with another actual play of our continuing Deadlands campaign.

Some things changing within the personal lives of the OOTAK gaming collective are: Eric, OOTAK’s largest, is on temporary leave while he works the night shift. Todd, OOTAK’s resident artist and pretend king, has moved into a new place, giving OOTAK it’s own space which will, hopefully, evolve into a full blown gaming den. I (Patrick) have a new girlfriend, yes ladies and gentlemen, I’ve changed my relationship status on Facebook, so its official.

But all of these changes are neither here, nor there, the game must go on, must always go on!

Merry Christmas to you all and please enjoy the very newest from OOTAK’s actual play archive!


Deadlands: Reloaded – Sessions X & XI

Happy Holidays OOTAK fans!

You’ve arrived just in time to claim your bonus double actual play session of OOTAK’s Deadlands: Reloaded campaign…

We keep it real here at OOTAK, so expect to find four hours of role-playing, dogs, kids, food hour, Doctor Woman and shenanigans…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Deadlands: Reloaded – Session IX

The OOTAK crew continues to game in the flesh and over the internet!

The fact that some of our group, who cannot make our sessions in person, can still game with the group is a real testament to the power of the Internet and a subject that we will not rehash here.

Session VIIII of our latest campaign (which will probably find it’s way to RPGMP3 at some point in time) is hot off the presses and ready for consumption.

Twain, Christine “Doctor Woman” Walsh, Leslie, Tunkwana and Sully continue their romp through the old, WEIRD, West!

Pictured below is an NPC that you haven’t met yet, but let’s just say that things get interesting in the future…

Deadlands: Reloaded – Session VIII

So I know that many of you are probably as excited for the premiere of The Walking Dead: Season 4 as I (Patrick) am.

Luckily I have another gift for you this fine Sunday morning: I have the gift of new OOTAK goodness!

Our Deadlands campaign continues and to be perfectly honest with you OOTAK is having a blast exploring the Weird West!

Unfortunately the party had say “Goodbye…” to a much loved character and “Hello!” to a new one. Twain is especially brokenhearted, but has managed to find a way to soldier on!

And without further adieu, OOTAK presents the very latest and greatest release!

Be sure to leave comments if you like what we do!

Deadlands: Reloaded – Session VII

Our Deadlands campaign continues.

Sadly we were a “man down” last night as one of our very own, OOTAK‘s Eric, is out of town.

We managed to soldier on somehow, against all odds…

I happened to take a couple of photos of the festivities. I even caught a picture of the elusive monster that is Jayson, our beloved GM!

Enjoy the freshest OOTAK release!

The man, the myth, the legend: Jayson!

Feedback is appreciated, as always, because it helps to let us know that you are listening and enjoy what we’re doing.

Oh yeah, OOTAK‘s resident artist, Todd Thomas, cooked up another piece of original artwork for your enjoyment!

Enjoy and Cheers!

“Revelations” – A Special One-Shot Scenario

OOTAK gamed this Monday, but unfortunately, Eric and Becky had to miss the session due to a prior out-of-town commitment. They were, however, gracious enough to offer the crew the use of their home.

Thankfully the members of OOTAK were well prepared for Becky and Eric’s absence and this little gem of a one-shot is brought to you courtesy of Jayson, Patrick, Todd, James and a special cameo by Jayson’s mom…

The scenario, titled Revelations, is written by Caleb of Role Playing Public Radio fame.

It is currently available here:

Caleb offers his scenarios (all of which are excellent) under a “Pay What You Want” model; you can pay nothing for it, but I strongly suggest you toss a few bucks his way if you read it, run it and like it.

Okay, enough of the shameless sales pitch.

Listen and enjoy… if you CAN!!!


Deadlands: Reloaded – Session III & IV

Sadly, the third session of our Deadlands campaign shall be forever lost because of an oversight on my (Patrick’s) part.

Feel free to leave hateful comments in the comments section.

All is not lost however, because our resident GM and horrible monster, Jayson, nicely recaps the third session for us and reminds me of the horrible freak out I had during our “lost” session.

Enjoy OOTAK fans!
