This Wicked Way Comes, (http://www.thiswickedwaycomes.com/), is an actual-play podcast in which Jill Sherman plays Maris and Warble, nomadic twin sisters surviving in a fractured world, and trying to carve out a piece of the fallout for themselves.
Matthew Sochocki plays the game master, crafting the world of waning hope and zero-sum situations the sisters suffer and overcome.
The couple first started playing role-playing games (RPGs) four years ago when a friend invited them to join a Dungeons & Dragons campaign. “Role playing games are a great way to spend time with friends,” says Sherman. “Each session is a unique team experience. And since the came is cooperative, you never have to worry about one competitive person ruining the experience. You’re all on the same team.”
This Wicked Way Comes takes a unique spin on traditional RPG play because it’s designed as a 1-on-1 experience. Sochocki originally conceived the idea of the podcast as a short story, but soon saw it as an opportunity to allow he and his wife to play with the characters he wrote. “I designed this game as a way for us to spend time together, but also as a way for her to spend time trying these characters on and embracing her inner badass.”
