As we wait for season 8, we discuss who should rule Westeros after the defeat of the White Walkers (going out on a limb there). Will it be the Mother of Dragons? Will Jon Snow unbend the knee? Is there a dark horse contender? Will Dorne – nope, that’s not happening. We both predict who it will be and make a case for our preferences.
We also discuss whether HBO’s treatment of one contender in season 7 is either genius or terrible, and we warn about the dangers of chimpanzees.
You laugh at them at the circus. You welcome them into your homes to entertain your children. You let them sell you hamburgers. But who are the men and women who hide behind the makeup. In this Creature Feature, we showcase clowning through history, and we discuss how you can play them as antagonists and protagonists in your role-playing games. And before you ask, “sexy clown” did not make the cut.
For a longer discussion on clowns listen to our podcast here.
We review the new(ish) tabletop RPG Tales from the Loop that has many people excited. Tales from the Loop seems to have hit a sweet spot with its combination of ’80s nostalgia, interesting game mechanics, and a setting both fantastic and familiar (well, if you’re from Sweden or Neveda).
Do we think it should find its way to your gaming table? Does our love affair with Modiphius continue? Is there a Swedish word for “Goonies”? Find out in our video review as we discuss “roleplaying in the ’80s that never was”.
Still on the fence about getting into the latest edition of Warhammer 40K? Well, you’re in luck. We unbox Dark Imperium, the “ultimate” Warhammer 40,000 8th edition starter set. We also discuss the value of the set, the quality of the miniatures, and how to best approach getting into 40k if you are new to the hobby.
