Episode 41: Wild West RPG’s

Old Man Grognard got me thinking about Wild West RPG’s and that lead me down a worm hole of old notes and thoughts about doing a sort Weird West thing along with looking at some inexpensive pdf’s. But more on the nitty gritty of that later on when I get those notes organized.

Episode 40: Know When To Hold ‘Em. Know When To Roll ‘Em

And we’re back with a new episode. I decided to a little break. Both because of the happy holidays and because of stupid Internet drama. Just didn’t feel like doing an episode.
But here it is and back into the saddle again. This episode is about when to roll dice. When not to. When to roll in the open and when to roll in secret. I also continue with my readings and thoughts from the 0E Little Brown Books and give notice that I’m already thinking of some changes and making plans for the New Year.
Here you go. Episode 40

Episode 39: Grimtooth, Far Away Land, and Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells

Another episode and I talk about lots of stuff.
I rant about Grimtooth’s Trapsylvania for Dungeon Crawl Classics. The PDF’s went out to Kickstarter backers and yes I backed it. Great dark murderous fun!

I also talk about Dirk Stanley doing a Swords & Wizardry conversion of Far Away Land. Great Idea. Can’t wait for that one.

And the wrap up of my Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells game. Enjoy!
Here’s the link.

Episode 38: BX Essentials, Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells, and Dogs Barking


This episode I rant about Cosmic Blades & Solar Spells (an upcoming release from Old Skull Publishing), get interrupted by dogs, talk a little more about BX Essentials, and one of the iconic monsters of D&D.
Here’s the link
And crap I keep getting the names of those games backwards. DAMMIT.

Episode 37: DM Notebooks, Swords & Wizardry, and Low Fantasy Gaming

Another week and another episode. This time I do a little more ranting on having your own DM Notebook, and little bit praise thrown at Swords & Wizardry again. The bulk of it is me ranting on Low Fantasy Gaming. Go ahead and check it out. Oh and tell me about BX Essentials.
And of course subscribe and here’s the link to the episode.

Episode 35: MeWe,Skills, and More

So I’ve decided to do only one episode a week. Better energy and just better time management (IHMO) with normal life. But that’s not what you want to read about. What’s up in this episode?
The migration to MeWe.
Skills in OSR Games.
Reading from the Little Brown Books.
And my favorite dice: Role 4 Initiative
See in comparision to the d20 from the 5E Starter Set.

And here’s Episode 35.
