Episode 179: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

A long time ago in a country far, far away…

It is a period of scheduling war. Having missed one upload date, Chris and Lyal are forced to record without Wayne. During the week, Disney released the trailer for Episode VII, a trailer with the power to break the entire Internet. Pursued by deadlines, Chris and Lyal race to record the episode and restore regularity to the upload schedule.

Hmm. The above might read better if you imagine the Star Wars theme playing. It might not, though.

Episode 53: D&D and THE SECRET FIRE

D&D retroclone + name-dropping + “immersion mechanics” = THE SECRET FIRE (But does it equal a good game?)

In this episode, we discuss what the new character roles could be in D&D 5e. We also look at THE SECRET FIRE, which promises to be nostalgic and innovative, dramatic and tactical, and all caps and, no, just all caps.

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.
