Playing It Wrong: Roll Initiative!

This episode I talk about initiative and high some interesting methods I’ve seen over the years in such games as TWERPS, The Hero System, Shadowrun, and Savage Worlds. Find out where I stole my house rule from. And finally back to reading from the Tomes of Ancient Forbidden Knowledge. This time Druid Spells from Eldritch Wizardry, Supplement III.

Playing It Wrong: I Hate Some People

Yes, I know I missed last week and barely got this week’s done. Life around the Gazebo has been busy and I just ain’t used to all the moving furniture and appliances around. So I’m still dog tired and sore.
This episode is a total ramble cast. I hate “some people”. You know that mythical bunch that is always cited by someone in online arguments. It’s always “some people”. Not much going on in the way of gaming but got lots of ideas bouncing around inside my head. But that’s for a later blog post. Plus a shout out to the new Kickstarter by Bloat Games, Survive This Fantasy. And there’s some other stuff too. No Tomes of Ancient Forbidden Knowledge. That’ll be next episode.

Episode 15: Old School Psionics WTF? and Beauty Is Only Skin Deep

I really tried to delve into the Psionics in Supplement III: Eldritch Sorcery. It just made my brain hurt. But isn’t that what Psionics is about? Also, a call in and another tale from the Bag of Too Many Things. And you can stream it right here or subscribe on most podcast platforms. Just search for Playing It Wrong and look for the pig.

And we’re one “Like” away on Facebook. That means bonus episodes!
Thanks for listening. Roll dice. Kill monsters. Take their stuff. And have fun!

Playing It Wrong: Judging A Game

What can turn off a game before you even buy it, read it, or play it? My big two things are character sheets and the community around the game. And I know this is a short episode but hey things are crazy and I’m trying to get back into some normal habits. And as usual, you can stream the episode right here. And sorry forgot to run some filters on this episode so the audio isn’t as good as it should be.

Thanks. And remember. Roll dice. Kill monsters. Take their stuff. And have fun.

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.
As always, you can subscribe on most podcast platforms. Or heck just stream it right here.

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.
