Shadowrun – Ep 21

When you think Shadowrun you think big trolls, big guns and someone yelling “Get Some!”

The best way for us to get all the guys together at one venue is to mention that we are going to play Shadowrun. (For those who don’t know) It is a game set in the near future that incorporates high technology with fantasy.

 

There are some that don’t like it, but we still love it and will always consider it one of our favorites.

High Magic vs. Low Magic Fantasy – Ep20

Can you get more fantasy awesome than Frazetta?

This week we take a look at fantasy roleplaying and the debate over high magic and low magic. There are many different theories on which is better, but ultimately it is personal preference. We , as a group, tackle this topic with our usual fervor (or lack of) and as always… accomplish little.

MMOs and New Gamers – Ep 19

This week we welcome a new member of the cast, Shawn. He is gracious enough to allow us to record at his house during the summer (thus keeping us from killing each other in a heat induced psychotic outburst).

 

Our topic is MMO’s (Massive Multi-player Online games… for those who don’t understand nerd) which is something that the gaming community is split on, some love it and some revile it. But, love them or hate them they certainly have changed table-top roleplaying forever.
