You Say Formless Beast of Lovecraftian Nightmares Like It’s a Bad Thing

Sharon, Chris, and Pete sit down with Ron Loz and Scott Jones and talk about their new book: Quantum Black. Quantum Black is a modern horror setting using the Ubiquity engine, the same system that powers the classic Hollow Earth Expeditions. Ron & Scott spent a lot of time working on this book, and kickstarted it late in 2015. The kickstarter was a success and they’re about to put it out, just in time for convention season!

Another great talk about gaming, this time we talk about the now annual compulsory event known as THANKSGAMING, which will perpetually be held the day after Thanksgiving in the Dudley household. We invite you to do the same and share your stories. We also talk about other games we do as holiday celebration, including some RPG ideas and anecdotes. Then we dig into holidays as they appear in the games we play!

Hello all! Pete here.

Well, Dusque and Dove had me on their show again! Third time was charming! 😉 Myself, Nathan from, and Oliver from Immersion Studios were the guests and we discussed some cool tips on how to be a good role-player and a few DM tricks, as well!

A good time was had by all! Check us out at

OH! And because it was my third appearance in Season 2, I was made a Deputy Rolecaster! Indeed, I am a man with many hats. And a couple of sweaters. And a decent pair of boots!

Until next time…Game On!

Pride & Prejudice & Dragons

I really couldn’t decide on that one. But we went with the former.

The BIG NEWS is friends-of-the-show Ron & Scott have a Kickstarter going for the Quantum Black game setting for Ubiquity (Hollow Earth Expeditions). Click HERE to find it on Kickstarter! Get in on the campaign while it’s still there!

For the Heart of the Matter, Chris, Sharon, and Pete talk about how social systems in RPGs have evolved and appeared over the years we’ve all been playing. We’d love to hear from our listeners if we missed a major social system RPG. Enjoy the show, and the new promo pointing to our OTHER show on the Rule Zero Network, DragonReel! Find it at!

They like me! They REALLY like me!

Rolling with the Rolecasters

Or how I got to round-table with Dusque, Dove, and DM Aram and lived to tell the tale!

Hello all: Pete here!

I just finished a round-table discussion with the Rolecasters ( and other special guest DM Aram of Godsfall ( We had a lovely talk about the advantages and disadvantages of homebrew adventures/campaigns vs. published (canned) adventures/campaigns.

Had a grand time and look forward to doing it again in 4 weeks! You can catch me and the Rolecaster folks on Twitch!

Episode 18 – Tracy Barnett and Iron Edda

Episode 18 – Tracy Barnett and Iron Edda


One Game, Many Systems

This episode we were joined by Tracy Barnett of Sand & Steam Productions, to talk about his latest project: Iron Edda. It’s already got one successful kickstarter to its name, and that’s for the novel that Tracy is in the process of writing. Tracy is planning another kickstarter coming up, for the game in all its many variations. Iron Edda is going to be a Norse-flavored fantasy RPG about giant dwarven constructs and magically powered skeletal giants. That pitch doesn’t do it the least bit of justice, however, so you’re going to have to listen to the show to get the real scoop.

We also talk about the latest short-fused Reaper Bones kickstarter. Get in while the getting’s good, or miss the boat a second time.
