Episode 82: Warriors: Condottieri

Because our listeners demanded it: condottieri! Actually, it was only was one listener, and he really just casually mentioned it.

In this edition of Warriors, we talk about mercenaries and free companies. Money can’t buy happiness, but it sure buys everything else worth having. Live free and die hard.

Episode 81: 99 Problems with D&D Next…

…but the picture of the gnoll ain’t one of them.

In this episode, we discuss the latest playtest material. We talk about what we like and don’t like, and Wayne makes a case for elves of colour. We also come up with a winning business strategy for Wizards of the Coast to follow for D&D Next.*

*We recorded this episode before WotC announced their plan to emphasize campaign settings and adventures, which bears a striking similarity to our strategy.

Episode 80: RPG Rookies: First Step

RPG Rookies is a series for new GMs and players or for more experienced GMs and players who like to complain about “obvious advice”. In First Step, we discuss the questions GMs and players need to ask themselves before playing a game, including which games will help you pull. Kidding. None of them will. We also offer some advice for those intimidated by 400-page rulebooks.

Episode 79: Creature Feature: Femme Fatales

We’re not bad; we’re just recorded that way.
