Cheaters – Ep55

You wanna see what we do to cheaters?

Show me someone who cheats at roleplaying games and I’ll show you… you know what, it may not be as uncommon as you might think. Be it fudging dice rolls or tweaking stats, cheating is something that every gamer has been exposed to. You’ve either done it or know someone who has. What do you do with someone you’ve caught with their hand in the cookie jar?

 

We talk about ways to cheat, the people we know who’ve done it and how some of us have done it.

Fictional Societies – Ep54

Who knows, he could be a real sweetheart if you got to know him.

How believable are the societies in roleplaying games? Many of the established game worlds we play in expect the suspension of belief, granted. If you really look at it, though, is an evil society sustainable? Are races inherently evil, like the drow or orcs?

 

In this Episode we take on these questions and ask a few more.

Dead Worlds – Ep53

Telling a gamer that they play in a dead world is like telling these guys disco is dead.

Dungeons and Dragons seems to be the game of lost lands. Meaning that there are worlds that were once very popular but have been abandoned by the people that own the rights to them. Are these worlds really dead? If not, what constitutes a dead world in roleplaying?

 

We talk about our take on this and some of the game worlds that we’ve played or wished we played that have may or may not have died.
