Episode 199: Pantheon Pandemonium: Christianity

From the vault! In this previously unreleased episode from 2015, Wayne and Lyal blasphemously tastefully add Christianity to our Pantheon Pandemonium series. This is an episode for those looking for ways to bring the Arian controversy and the Trinity into their RPG (And who isn’t?) or for those who want their in-game religions to feel more realistic.

Episode 198: Malifaux

We take a look at the world of Malifaux in its many incarnations including the miniatures skirmish game, the recently Kickstarted miniatures strategy game, The Other Side, and the RPG Through the Breach. Joining us is special guest Nick, the organizer of our local Malifaux group, gremlin lover and all around knowledgeable fellow regarding matters on both sides of the Breach. If you are new to Malifaux, this should give you a good taste of the setting and help you decide if now is the right time to make the leap. If you are already playing let us know in the comments which faction you play and what got you into the game. All responses will be reported to the local Guild office and any use of magic may be severely punished.

Episode 197: Living Card Games

LCG, how can I explain? I’ll take it game by game it
To have y’all clickin’, kneelin’, playin’ it
L is for “living”, C is for “card”, scratch your temple
The last G, well, that’s not that simple
Oh, wait. It is. It’s for “game”. “Living card game”.
It’s three little words that’ll empty your wallet
Don’t complain to me, I called it.
Living? Seems I gotta start explainin’ it
You ever buy a game and try to build a deck
You find an opponent and play
And then left feelin’ wrecked
You get home, build more
But you need a card, so you go to the game store
And it’s over a hundred dollars?!
It’s not a front, a F to the R to the O to the N to the T
It’s just it’s an ultra rare.

It’s LCG time, what you see is what you get
There’s no need to for an aftermarket, just buy the set
How many players out there know what I’m getting at?
Who thinks it’s wrong that victories go to the deck that’s fat?
Well, if you do, it’s LCG, and you’re down with it
But if you don’t, gather your magic

Who’s down with LCG? (Yeah, you know me!)
“LCG” by Idle by Nature

In this episode, we talk about living card games and how to get started.

Episode 195: The Last Jedi and Rogue One

I can’t stand that Galen planned that
But I’m gonna send it straight through a tiny gate
My knees are knocking now that I’m here
Because that Sith lord gives me Sith fear
So while you sit back and wonder why
What prompted Bodhi to help us fly
May the Force help you dodge
I’m tellin’ y’all it’s a sabotage
K-2S0, you ain’t saying nothin’
I can shut you down with a push of a button
But I’m out and I’m gone
But this last scene is going on and on
– “Death Star Sabotage”

In this episode, we talk about The Last Jedi and Rogue One.
