Playing It Wrong: Buried Content

It’s another episode. This time I go totally off the normal beaten track and talk about search engines and social media and that they’re pretty much stacked against the little guy or the “outsider”. Let’s face it. Celebrity and controversy get more traction than content. So to heck with it. Time to do things your way. Enjoy the doing and let the rest of it rot.

You can listen to the episode on Anchor or subscribe via where fine podcasts are found.

Or you could just stream it right here.

With that I leave you to have fun out there. I’m still playing catch up after a crazy week so there’s some fun blog posts coming up. Thanks again.

Playing Wrong It With Super Powers

In case you haven’t noticed the blog domain is updated! And yes it’s been a busy weekend but I’ve squeezed in an episode. This week I talk about Super Hero RPG’s and dang it they are tough to run. I talk about some of the problems and the two best games that fight my tastes depending on what kind of campaign I want to run. My two faves right now are Supers Revised Edition and Vigilante City. Plus a review will coming up on the blog for BX Gangbusters by Mark Hunt.
What else? I offer up a little wisdom to new DM’s and rant about the “new” monsters from Supplement 1: Greyhawk.
You can listen to this Episode on Anchor.fm or search for Playing It Wrong on your favorite podcast service.
Or heck just stream it right here. I told I was working on the blog too.

A Little Self Promotion

Time for a little self promotion on the good old blog. I’ve updated the benefits on the Patreon and now I’m sort of updating the goals. I know folks don’t want to part with their hard earned dollars. Heck, I was really resistant backing someone on Patreon for years so I understand. But to get more things going, I’m sweetening the pot. I’m going to move ahead on some goals based on outside goals. So here’s the deal.
You want bonus episodes of the Playing It Wrong Podcast. I’ll start doing a bonus episode if we get 50 Likes on the Facebook Page. Patrons will still get this a week early.
For the Youtube Channel. I’m setting the outside goal pretty high: 100 subscribers. Why? Well, that’s the point that I can get the much lauded custom url. Also, the videos take more effort and time. So I want to put my effort where the audience is. I’ll post videos there as things just pop up but it won’t be on any sort of schedule.
Time to grow the audience and see what happens.
please visit the Patreon and check it out. Thanks!

Lankhmar, Tegel Manor and The Blight Oh My!

What a busy week! The mail gods have been good to me. Got a hard copy of The Blight and the Lankhmar Boxed set. Plus the Tegel Manor PDF is out to the backers. I understand that there have been some server issues but that’s all worked out.

You can listen to the long rant, and call ins in this week’s episode.

You can check out the unboxing on Youtube.

Please consider subscribing to the channel. It takes 100 subscribers to get that custom URL and other features that actually makes Youtube more usuable. And it’s a good number to start to show that it’s really worth the time to keep it going. Hit that 100 Subscriber mark then will add doing regular videos to the list.

So I’m doing a little challenge on Facebook too. Like the Facebook Page. Hit 100 Likes and well. It means I just might start doing that bonus Episode of the podcast.

Playing It Wrong: Why Fantasy?

In this episode, I go deep into opinionsville.  So why is fantasy the most popular genre for RPG’s?  And there’s the usual segments, a remarkably calm Labyrinth Lord game,  D&D Boot Camp, and reading from the Little Brown Books.
Also, mentioned in this Episode, Bill Webb’s Deck of Trick Tricks. Check it out on Indiegogo.
So go ahead and check out this episode on Anchor.fm or where you happen to listen to podcasts. Chances are we’re thre.
