Episode 6: Intro to Gaming

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.

If you’re an experienced gamer, have a listen to see if you agree with our descriptions, definitions, and recommendations.

Special note: We debut our new microphone this episode.

Episode 3: Campaign Confessions: Hindsight is d20/20 Part 1

Yujiro is back! Welcome to our other guest host, Tom!

Campaign Confessions are episodes where we look at one of the campaigns we are playing. The first part focuses on the game system (and possibly setting), and the second part focuses on the actual story.

In our first episode of Campaign Confessions, we look at the game run by Chris: D&D 4e. We’re a little late to the party, we know. We blame the time difference between Japan and North America, which I believe is 12 hours and 18 months. Don’t tell us who won last year’s Stanley Cup, please.

About halfway through Lyal’s tangent on the Star Wars toys he owned as a kid, you’ll wonder how boring Wayne’s Toys ‘R’ Us tangent must have been to have been cut from episode 0.
