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.

Movies: Gamer/Nerd Culture   Ep 13

Apparently I should see it...

This week’s show is a bit different. We talk about some of our favorite movies, but we also have the perspective of Mandy (Deuce’s wife and Eric’s sister).

 

We also run long on this one. That is for two reasons: We intended to break this episode up into two parts, but decided that that was lame so we didn’t. The other reason is that it is not as tediously edited as our regular episodes. We did that because we wanted to convey the feeling of what it really is like to sit at the table with us as we bullshit.
