Idle Red Hands Weekly 008

Games Workshop and Bandai team up to bring us 40k action figures and chibi grimdark (as if Funko Pops were grimdark enough). On Kickstarter we talk about Good Society, a Jane Austen RPG, Trilemma, a compendium of system-independent adventure locations and Icaion by Tabula Games, their third game offering in the Mysthea Universe. Plus the worst Bela Lugosi impression. Ever.

Idle Red Hands Weekly 006

Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls TTRPG plagiarizes D&D, the unauthorized short-lived Games of Thrones CCG Kickstarter, a plague of Patreons including one for Idle Red Hands and the end of a gaming era with Jamie and Andrew leaving Japan. Our final Monsterhearts session will be the end of a great expat gaming group.

Episode 52: Slavery

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the word “slavery”? “Fun”? “Engaging”? No? Well, after this episode you just might. Probably not, though.

Episode 49: Knights and Samurai

We spent 2011 painstakingly researching the cultures and wars that shaped the knight and samurai in order to give you an hour of solid entertainment. It would take us longer to list all of the topics we cover in the episode than the actual running time. (I’m not sure how that’s mathematically possible, but it’s true.) We even manage to squeeze in some Roman history, if Spartacus: Blood and Sand counts as history.

Happy New Year!

Episode 46: Campaign Confessions: Savaged Worlds Part 2

It was to be a story for the ages. Its heroes dwarfed The Iliad‘s. Its pathos rivaled Oedipus Rex. It had more earth-threatening disasters than a Roland Emmerich film. And it lasted three sessions.

In this episode, we discuss The Marius Chronicles and its premature demise. We talk about party design, “yes” GMs, “no” GMs, and the dangers of elevator pitching a game.

Episode 16: Once Upon a Time…

In a land very much like your own, but with more Sailor Moon uniforms, three podcasters did an episode on Changeling: The Lost. Lyal thought it was too dark. Wayne thought it wasn’t dark enough. Chris thought, well, that was never quite clear.

So, the three podcasters decided to look for gaming inspiration from real fairy tales. Chris collected ladies’ shoes until his wife caught him. Wayne looked for his sleeping beauty until hospital security barred him from the coma ward. Lyal ordered a “living doll” from the Internet, but he never actually said what happened with that.

Then, the three little trolls found the comic Fables and a podcast episode took shape.
