Episode 73: Campaign Confessions: Apocalypse World & Skype

No one knows how it happened. To understand, you’d have to go back to a time before D&D Next or Monsterhearts. In a blaze of madness and surrounded by the hum of computers, we tried Apocalypse World. It was a world and there had been an apocalypse. I guess it was too much to ask for a more creative name.

In this episode, we talk about Apocalypse World. We played it over Skype, so we share our experiences with that as well.

Episode 72: Pantheon Pandemonium: Egypt

A lion, crocodile and hippopotamus walks into a bar. Oh, did I mention that this is just one  demon?
In this addition to Pantheon Pandemonium, we look at the Egyptians. As you would expect, we don’t talk about pyramids and mummies barely get a mention. Instead, we discuss ma’at, ka, ba, the Book of the Dead, some hippopotamus-lion-crocodile demon, and gay marriage.

Episode 71: Warriors: Stormtroopers

“O la vittoria, o tutti accoppati.”
– Arditi motto
We either win, or we all die, eh?”
– Canadian version (Often used by the Olympic hockey team)

In this installment of Warriors, we look at the original stormtroopers, the German Stosstruppen of World War I. But that’s not all! Download now and we’ll throw in the Italian Arditi. Wait! For a limited time, we’ll include the Canadian Expeditionary Force, arguably the even more original stormtroopers, with all listens of $0 or more. Beauty, eh?

Episode 70: Friday Night Lights

“Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can’t lose!”
– Dillon Panthers’ motto

It’s Sunday night, folks, and the Idle Red Hands are without one of their star players, Chris “Flesh Wall” Idle. They’ve faced this situation before, but they are also looking at a strict no spoiler policy with this episode. It’s going to be tough talking about one of the best TV series of all time without ruining storylines. I hear that Coach Taylor is going to have them discuss how to use certain key elements and characters types in your games. Are you ready for some football?
