Episode 311 - Our GMing Styles

Chris dissects our GMing styles. And then we complain about how everyone else’s style sucks. God, their games are so tedious.

Episode 310 - Complete Book of Initiative

Who goes first? It’s a universal problem with only a couple of solutions. We talk about initiative systems we’ve loved before, as well as those that leave us at the bottom of the turn order.

Episode 309 - Ars Nativica

Natives. Can you play one without being racist? We get racist.

Episode 308 - Gaming Roundup

Dale deigns to join us, where he informs us of all the gaming related things he’s been doing. If you guessed “D&D,” you guessed right. But would you also believe that it gets political? I would.

Episode 307 - Reverse Casting

We decide that, since everyone is in comic book movies, we should figure out who certain actors should be cast as. Mostly this consists of looking at Google Images.

Episode 306 - Comic Cinematic Universes

DC is trying to get their own movie juggernaut going, but the real question is: Do we want their cinematic universe? And why is DC seemingly so much better at TV than Marvel? All these questions and far, far nerdier ones as well.

Episode 305 - The Adventure Gaming Manifesto

We’re divorcing ourselves from gamers because, as it turns out, they’re terrible people. But, we still want to game. So, we invented a new hobby, complete with manifesto. Join us, won’t you?

Episode 304 - How Gaming Has Changed

We fear change! Except that we manage to talk about it for quite awhile, so it must be one of those new controversial exposure therapies that makes us into stronger people.

Episode 303 - The Book of Balance

What is balance, other than that thing that prevents you from falling over? Is it mechanical? Narrative? Social? Why does John Wick have a movie named after him? And why does he hate D&D?

Episode 302 - System vs. Setting

What settings sound awesome but are let down by a poor ruleset? Or is the ruleset better than the setting? We meld the two sides of our brains together to appreciate everything gaming has to offer.
