Late in 2011, we started the process of creating our next actual play podcast. Following in the wake of our well received Victoriana series, we wanted to take on something a little larger in scope. It was decided that we would play Star Wars Saga Edition, set it in the Old Republic and make the entire story adversarial.
One year later, having just finished final cast recording, we all sat down and discussed the meta-knowledge involved in the story.
Star Wars, Old Republic, Heart of Darkness, Apocalypse Now, Pulp Fiction, They Live, Police Squad, Star Trek, Dune, Dark Horse Comics, Monty Python, Benny Hill, Gen Con, Smallville, Leverage
No, this is not about how cool my friends are and how we love the red-headed stepchild that is Promethean the Created (much to my chagrin).
The term “frankengaming” is actually used quite a bit in the video game community. It is usually theoretical mashups of different video games that people would like to see. What we do in this episode is much like that, but instead we apply it to tabletop role-playing games.
Thanks to Kevin Handling for inspiring this episode and all the great Alfie, the half-ogre, memories.
This episode was recorded at Gen Con 2012 in one of our hotel rooms. It was decided that for comfort reasons that many of the guys would hold their mics rather than have them on a mic stands. That is why it occasionally sounds like they are fondling large balloons. Don’t worry, it won’t happen again.

The clock is ticking as the mission begins in earnest.
