Episode 60: Warriors: Vikings

“A man can carry no better load than too much good sense, and no worse one than yo’ mama.” – Viking proverb (kind of)

Straight outta Oslo, crazy Viking warrior named Brand,
From the podcast called Erik Red Hands.
Before anthrax, there’s my scramasax,
Swing the iron and bodies get axed.

In the second in our Warriors series, we bring the fury of the Norsemen to any game. Act bravely and the skalds will sing of your deeds forever.

Episode 30: Hardboiled

Good evening, hepcats, greasers and squares. We got the skinny on playing hardboiled in La La Land in the early ’60s, a land of queens, dreams and inbetweens. Dig Lyal laying on some heavy RPG experiments. Dig Wayne going talk, talk, talk (over Lyal). Dig Chris offering some funky advice.

So, tune in and dig the baaaad vibe we lay down. It’ll be a gas. From the podcast that’s on the record, off the QT and never very hush-hush.

Correction: Elfenland is actually like the travelling salesman problem, not “dilemma”.

Special Note 1: The Ryan and Matt mentioned in the podcast are the forum’s very own Ryan and Matt.

Special Note 2: It’s not mentioned in the episode, but we used the World of Darkness system.

Episode 17: Conventional Wisdom

Kristos is back and so is talk of rape. It’s not a coincidence.
