Brought to you by rocket scientists hellbent on pure unadulterated realism, Living Steel is basically Heinlein by way of Games Workshop, with probably a few too many tables (which is […]
Are you looking for a game of two-fisted derring-do and rousing pulp adventure? You’ll be sure to find it in some other book. Gear Krieg is an RPG companion to […]
Yay, a game we didn’t hate! This is a very specific sort of RPG, in which you play as a knightly dynasty during the Morte D’Arthur romantic tales. Will you […]
This book is a grim, unrelenting slog. Punctuated by the kind of art that would be impressive if this book was a collection of screenshots from the first Fallout game, […]
Well, it’s been four years. Honestly when we started the gimmick of doing D&D every 25 episodes we never thought we’d actually get as far as third edition. Here we […]
Moon Prism Power! Right? Right? That’s what she says sometimes? Look this is weird for us. Not our usual thing. So we brought in a ringer! A guy that’s watched […]
The countdown to episode 100 begins! This week, Legendary Lives. Just another heartbreaker you’ve never heard of? Maybe. Does it commit several of the weird sins of old game design? […]

Warning: This episode is for mature gamers only. So if you think the word “Boogers” is still pretty funny, maybe you should wait til we review the RPG adaptation of […]
It’s not too late to go support the new Kickstarter for the next edition of this weird but fairly charming game if you want. It will be very soon, which […]
Vacation recaps! Settling if we’re too mean about LARPing. Questions from you! It’s an action packed adventure through wonderment and buffoonery!
It’s a game for only the dapperest of beardsmen on today’s System Mastery. We’re talking Cthulhu Live, a game of rapidly going insane while extras cavort about in the background.
If you listen real close you can actually hear the vault whispering. It’s not worth it though, he’s just reading the Humor in Uniform section out of old Reader’s Digests. […]
So here’s an interesting first. The author of The Secret of Zir’an, Chris Hockabout, is a listener! So when we covered his book, he reached out to us. Thank goodness […]
