Episode 13: Don’t Let Monsters Be Boring

I missed last week but here I am back with another episode. This time I’m talking about making monsters interesting. It doesn’t take much and you don’t have to make every one of them weird. Because if everything is weird then nothing is weird. The top three things are tactics, personality and location. I also delve into the Druid in Eldritch Sorcery.

And while I’m stuck working from home, I’m also doing bonus episodes. So if you’re not subscribed here’s the most interesting one from last week.

Thanks for listening. Remember. Roll Dice. Kill Monsters. Take Their Stuff. Have Fun. And Stay Safe!

Episode 12: Boxed Text..?


This week I delve into the Boxed Text. The bane of many adventures. Be inspired by it but don’t get tied to it. You can even ignore it. And a very special call in. Plus, I also start on reading from Supplement III: Eldritch Wizardry. There’s some pretty good thoughts in the beginning of the book.

Playing It Wrong: Let’s Redefine Grognard

A crazy idea. Let’s redefine Grognard. Not the old grumpy gamer but gamer who’s about the game. New communities are forming and most folks are just getting sick and tired of all the negativity. Plus where I get my organic gummy bears. And I finish up on Supplement II: Blackmoor.

Episode 10: Genre and Setting and New Socks

It’s OK to use the same setting with different genres. Just do the extra work to tweak it what you want to do. Plus hey there was some powered armor in old D&D. It ain’t all Tolkien. Also, GM’s Day is coming on March 4. And here’s a reminder: Only a few days left on the Swords & Wizardry Boxed Set Kickstarter

Yes. I got n ew socks.

Episode 8: It’s fun to play & What am I going to run?

It’s been a busy weekend and it’s going to be a busy week but here’s this week’s episode.
I actually get to play Dungeon Crawl Classics and had two characters survive the funnel. Lord Bob and Mysterio. This week the Blight game is coming but I’m already thinking about the next campaign. It may sound silly but Cthulhu Vs either Pirates or Cowboys. I know strange and I’ve talked about it before. Oddly enough, I’m thinking about hacking Mini 6 for this or maybe Savage Worlds. Or heck maybe even stick with good old D% system with some hacks. Thanks to Steve C for the call in!
Go ahead and give this episode listen. Just stream it here or subscribe on your favorite podcast platform.

So what do you think? Savage Worlds, Mini 6, or don’t mess with it and make it Standard Call of Cthulhu.
