Episode 194 – Review: Mutant Chronicles

Flush with the thrill of pledging Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel, Jeremy and Lyal give you a Mutant Chronicles double feature review: the Mutant Chronicles RPG and the Mutant Chronicles movie! (Movie? There was a movie?) Come for the review of the techno fantasy RPG set in a dark dieselpunk solar system. Stay for the review of the box office smash acting masterclass movie starring Thomas “not Aaron Eckhart” Jane, Ron “I can’t believe he’s not Irish” Perlman, and John “One Take” Malkovich.

Episode 65: Creature Feature: Giants

“You sure do look pretty, Miss Leslie. Pert nigh good enough to eat!”
-Jett Rink, Giant

Now, imagine a 15-foot tall James Dean saying that. Size matters. In this installment of Creature Features, we discuss giants of legend and fiction. Go big or go home.

Episode 6: Intro to Gaming

Everything you always wanted to know about pen-and-paper role-playing games but were afraid (or couldn’t be bothered) to ask.

The Idle Red Hands are blessed with some great friends who, despite having no clue about RPGs, listen to our podcast. One recommended that we record an episode that explains some of the basic concepts to help him follow along, so we did. This is for him and all those who have ever wondered why some people choose to spend their Saturday nights rolling dice.

If you’re an experienced gamer, have a listen to see if you agree with our descriptions, definitions, and recommendations.
