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.

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.
