Besides having the most generic of all the titles from our Year of Trilogies, it also features a return to the first movie. Some of us are bored by that. Others think it was cool. The only thing I’m sure of is that we all can’t wait for 2015!

What goes into declaring your undying love for a faction? The aesthetics, the rules, the fluff? How hardcore are you into your chosen faction? We have Shane on the show so that it’s evenly matched between the people who never change factions and those who change them every few minutes.

We’re back in the new year with the same old arguments! This includes a lengthy discussion where Dale declares his man-crush on Peter Jackson, Jim and Mark argue with him, and Chris is sick. Then we talk about peasants in games and why they’re so cruelly maligned.

Our epic 12-hour long spoiler club on The Lord of the Rings begins. We discuss hobbits, useless wizards, even more useless horses, and the might of the giant eagles. Jim and Mark demonstrate why they’re nerds by making numerous Silmarillion references.

Mark hates Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. Chris hates the Spartans. Can these two people put aside their differences and embrace historical figures in RPGs? Nope.

Just in time for Independence Day comes villains…er, wait. We talk about the rise of the villain as the protagonist on television shows and what that means for the future of America. Mark posits a new theory about the anti-villain and then we mangle it for the rest of the episode.

We talk about humans. You know, those things that we are. Particularly their coverage in RPGs. How are they mechanically represented? Why does Dale always have to be a special snowflake? Why are the aliens using Macs?
