In this episode, we seize this rare opportunity to be topical and talk about the biggest news in gamingsince the announcement of Dungeons and Dragons 4e: the announcement of, uh, Dungeons and Dragons 5e. We give our 5e wish list and, oddly enough for three guys that have yet to figure out to how to monetize their podcast, give our thoughts on what Wizards of the Coast’s business strategy should be.
Next episode, we look at Street Fighter: The Storytelling Game. Here to stay?

Everything you always wanted to know about pen-and-paper role-playing games but were afraid (or couldn’t be bothered) to ask.
The Idle Red Hands are blessed with some great friends who, despite having no clue about RPGs, listen to our podcast. One recommended that we record an episode that explains some of the basic concepts to help him follow along, so we did. This is for him and all those who have ever wondered why some people choose to spend their Saturday nights rolling dice.

Character Creation: Take 2. Practice may not have made perfect in this case, but it’s certainly a lot better than our initial effort. You’re welcome!
In this episode, we discuss what should go into making a character, from the Yujiro’s “Your character in 60 seconds or less” to Lyal’s “Research and Ride-alongs”. Wayne makes a joke that he then needed to explain to Lyal after the episode. (It still wasn’t funny.)
A big thank you to Chris for working so hard to improve the sound quality.
