Agents of M.U.M – Ep99

Agents of M.U.M   Ep99

If Cissy Birmingham says we can, then we can!

Sometimes we get what we wanna.

Forever we have been bugging Mike to run a World War II era superhero campaign. He promised us that he would run it as one of his New Year’s resolutions and lo and behold, he did it.

This entire episode is about the aspects of our campaign. Everything from inspirations, themes, NPCs and the PCs themselves.

Antiheroes – Episode 16

Antiheroes – Episode 16

An antihero sells rich white ladies their own fat asses back to them.

This week we talk about the rise of the antihero in movies, literature and especially gaming. Even without thinking about it, the concept has dominated our gaming practices (and no doubt, the practices of other gaming groups as well).
