We played Dresden Files, second to last game of the series! We also played a failed game of All Flesh Must Be Eaten, discovering that our group can’t do survival horror. So, on to Sorcery & Super Science!


We are going to be giving away T-Shirts and Buttons this year at GenCon!

Also, please send us a character so we can show you how we create a session from scratch.


Wil! You are awesome and we love hearing from you!

Mr. Gone, your character sheets are beautiful, and we’re glad you offer them for download. Thank you!

BedrockBrendan! Our discussion is in this thread, specifically this post.

The GURPS stuff we mention is available here.

Joe loves China Mieville, and has based his Dresden Files monsters are the big bads in Perdido Street Station.

  • As much as I’d love to pick up a shirt before the con since I can’t go, I’d rather you guys not put them up until after the con so you don’t accidentally get cleaned out. 🙂 *continues listening to episode*

  • You know you could reach out to the older gamers you know who did game in the 80’s and ask them for comments or anecdotes on the subject. Also just have to be me and stare at the monitor while you two youngins talk about being old….PLEASE….Why when I was young we didn’t have game stores we had bookstores like Waldenbooks that is where we got our gaming supplies. But by no means am I complaining, I love the internet and what it has done for the gaming industry, especially Role Playing Games.
    Love the show and hope to catch you guys at GenCon. Miss gaming with you like a fish misses water. Keep up the awesome work. Laters.

  • OH and before I forget, it wasn’t a good game unless Nicky spilled her beer. I remember the crazy index cards and I remember you tossing them regularly as we slashed through them.

  • One more thing. My vote for what game you guys should run is without a doubt is Mutant City Blues….no wait Shard…..NO wait a Savage World game……Oh heck it doesn’t matter because if you run when I am there I am playing and it will be amazing.
