Genesys Dice

Melting Plot is an edited actual play RPG (role playing game) podcast using the Genesys Roleplaying System by Fantasy Flight Games. Each season of Melting Plot sees a group of randomly selected pop culture characters attempt to survive a cataclysmic event. Characters may come from popular movies, tv shows, video games, or other source media – but the group is constructed randomly so each season will feature completely unique interactions.

Each season features a brand new story with new characters – which are determined by rolling from a randomized list which includes characters from movies like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, the Matrix, and Aliens – video games like Mario, the Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and Halo – and TV shows such as Stranger Things, the Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, the X-Files, and Battlestar Galactica. We play each season until the characters survive the catastrophe or die trying.

In a way, Melting Plot is like audio fan fiction. Melting Plot is more than just a role playing game podcast – we fully believe in the power of storytelling. Our goal is to make a cinematic listening experience through the use of music, ambiance, and light sound effects.
