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!

A Wild SlyFlourish Appears!

Mike Shea of SlyFlourish (@SlyFlourish) joins us for a discussion about his latest book, The Lazy Dungeon Master. We discuss what brought the idea about, and why these ideas could help you in your game.

Mike also shares his thoughts on indie publishing in general, where the gaming market is going (citing the Mongoose State of the Mongoose article), and the Superman Trailer.

You won’t want to miss a minute of the action this time.

Cheating to Win

in which Chris recounts his tale of running a one-shot interlude in the Pathfinder game, only to have to make stuff up on the fly! Goodness! Is that even legal? Fortunately, we have Pete to talk him down off the ledge. The basic discussion is about making things up on the fly for the good of the game. When is it OK to improvise? How much preparation is not enough preparation?

We have to preface this podcast with a mild apology. Pete references jumping in front of a train, but this is not a deliberate reference to the recent subway incident. This part of the conversation was actually recorded before (USA’s) Thanksgiving holiday, so no insensitivity to current events is intended. It was just an unfortunate coincidence.

The opening skit uses music by CadillacMatt95, which I got here  and for which we thank him greatly.

Having a full time job kind of caused this episode to be delayed, as I had to make up time from the hurricane. Why don’t they outlaw those things? Seems silly.

Less Scum! More Villainy!

This Goes to Eleven! (I really couldn’t decide.)

This one’s actually been delayed by our dithering over a skit that just never quite gelled. So, apologies if anyone was waiting with bated breath. And if you were, then please brush your teeth.

The talk on playing evil got us talking about villains, and we decided that was a whole show in and of itself. And what followed was a discussion so meaty, I couldn’t cut it down any more than this, and as a result, this is a darn long episode.
