Episode 377 - Complete Book of Attributes

Attributes are the things that all (most) games have, but we still argue about what they are for most of the episode. You’d think there’d be some sort of common language of these things by now.

Episode 372 - Death in Games

We discuss that one thing that every game assumes but never actually happens - death. Are we just namby-pamby babies who hate to see a dead character, or is it the solution to all of our problems? The grave holds its secrets…

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.

There’s a long tradition of using miniatures in RPGs and we look at all the methods used. Also, a conversation about integrating miniature games into RPGs. And pie. Always pie.

Episode 336 - Ars Familia

Organized crime in roleplaying games gets the occasional sourcebook, but isn’t normally anything other than an antagonist faction. We set out to change that with our in-depth treatise on the subject. Or, we just talk about FIFA.

Episode 333 - Iron Kingdoms Post Mortem

We had another game end, so we recap that one, too. This one involved more rules arguments so there’s that, at least. We also celebrate the ascension of the Invisible Clergy.

Episode 319 - RPG Writing
