Absent Gamers – Ep43

This is what you are texted when you miss one of our games. Missed fortitude save, sorry Jayson.

Anyone who has gamed has had to deal with the gamer who is not there. Be it a family obligation, work, a booty call or even to go to the bathroom, sometimes players will not be able to make it to or have to leave the game.


This is how we handle that very common situation (and in a mostly immature fashion).

Themed Campaigns and Characters – Ep41

I know what Dan's next themed character is going to be...

If you have been gaming for a while, the concept of themed campaigns should not be a new one. Setting parameters for character creation and a focused direction for a campaign can be very rewarding.


In this episode we discuss the themes we have used and plan on using in the future.
