Welcome to Movies of Darkness, today we will be watching Johnny Mnemonic and trying to interpret the events in the story from the perspective of the World of Darkness role playing games. We have designed this to be a commentary you can listen to while watching Johnny Mnemonic and have added a prompt so you know when to hit the play button.
The main thing we will be doing is trying to explain how the events on screen would be interpreted according to a session of a world of darkness game. For example, we might say that a certain event would require a roll of some sort. Or, if we encounter a character, we’ll be speculating on what supernatural they might be and what powers they might have.
Also, while we watch, we’ll be filling out a character sheet for Johnny Mnemonic.
