Episode 378 - The Bestiary

This episode makes very little sense. We talk about animals and monsters in roleplaying games, but this mostly consists of the question “Who is your favorite bear?”

Episode 376 - System Mastery

We discuss all the news of the day, except the one thing everyone’s talking about. Then, we discuss how well we actually know the systems we play.

Episode 370 - Fame & Reputation in Games

We discover the ephemeral nature of reputation and reputation management when we discuss the vagaries of fame in games. No one ends up more famous, which just makes the whole thing pointless.

Episode 367 - The Complete Book of Adventures

We talk about our most loved property - the pre-written adventure. We discuss the merits and flaws of the format and what we’ve learned from them. The house is on fire.

Episode 361 - Complete Guide to Character Creation

We make some characters. Because we have opinions about them. As if you didn’t know that.

Episode 359 - The Complete Book of Powers

That’s right, we discuss the broadest possible target: powers in games. We emerge from the other side knowing nothing new. But that’s pretty typical.

Episode 354 - The Complete Book of Equipment

We debate the merits of equipping yourself. I think we’re against it…except when we’re completely for it. It doesn’t really make sense. We also discuss our favorite magic items.

Episode 342 - The Complete Book of Experience

We spend all of our experience on frivolous social advantages instead of improving our stats or buying sweet new powers.

Episode 339 - GenCon

Expect the sort of incisive discussion you get from people who are not at GenCon and who, in fact, recorded this episode before GenCon was over. So we really know what we’re talking about. Be sure to listen to find out how you can get your Con exclusive!

Episode 327 - Complete Book of Vehicles

Vehicles are things we all own, and yet, roleplaying games have never handled them to our satisfaction. We go into a power slide, throw ourselves from the car, and critique games.
