We talk about people with jobs. Dale thinks a job keeps you from adventuring and Chris thinks nobles don’t adventure either. Mark mentions Marxist theory to sound intelligent. Jim talks about stuff.

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.

Halflings. What are they good for? What niche are they filling in RPGs? We don’t know either.

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.

We’re only getting around to running our first adventure after 200 episodes. Chris has questions and we have answers, mostly revolving around personal gaming stories. Sorry.

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?

Should games be bigger? What’s the optimum scale? Arguing commences.

All we know is that we’re not funny. We discuss how to bring humor into games, what the best comedy RPGs are, and lots of personal stories. Sorry.

Genres are talked about. Especially which genres we haven’t done anything with but want to. Along the way, we discuss other weighty matters of the day, like our confusion over hard sci-fi and Dale’s awesome Conan game idea.

We talk about playing a character from something else. Then we talk about books. Then we talk about Spoiler Clubs. And then we play the music and go home.
