Podcasts are Up! Our Gang is Back!

Still working on that convention material for this past Grand-con.  Should start rolling out the first freshly minted episode next week.

In the meantime Our Gang is back in action in three all new RuneQuest episodes!

What is Our Gang to do when an old enemy comes back for HIS CUT!?  Well, start a start a pyramid scheme involving blackmail of course!

It's time to get to the root of the issue, that root just happens to be underground.  So Our Gang loads up on torches, rope, and expendable NPC's and heads down to KILL CHAOS!

Slice is on the ropes, metaphorically speaking of course, and hiding out in his filthy chaos temple that we can't get in.  We're running low on supplies, but running high on killing chaos and loot.  The question is if Our Gang can last long enough to spend it!

So Long Grand-Con 2016

Well Grand-con 2016 came and went.  It was a whirlwind three days of almost constant game running awesomeness.  Thanks again to everyone who made this weekend possible, you know who all of you are.  I'll be busy for the next couple of weeks getting the podcasts in order and ready to be released.  I honestly thought I was going to laugh myself to death during a session of Fiasco and during the Iron GM: Matt Must Pay game.  Plus I personally got to play in a Palladium Fantasy game with creator Kevin Siembieda as Coltran,Wizard of Wonder.  It ended by me taking a dagger to the stomach to stop a town from being sucked into hell by a pumpkin headed tyrant, it was epic.

Cannot wait for next year.

See you in 2017 Grand-con,

Realms of Fantasy

In anticipation for Grand-Con coming up at the end of the week, where we will be running a ton of games here is a little preview of some of the systems we'll be running.

Up first is the terrific Realms of Fantasy, which is an RPG with a distinct old school feel without being another dungeons and dragons clone.  Michael Miller, the creator of the game, sat down and ran a summer campaign for us:

Session One where we try and clean out an old abandoned keep.
Session Two where we end up at a tiny hamlet with some mysterious goings on.  Plus Corruption!
Session Three is where the party tries their hands at some mad monks
Session Four is all about the spiders, those poisonous, poisonous spiders.

Also Aaron is running his Time Stories RPG/Board Game Hybrid at the convention.  The game is like a mix of Time Cop/Doctor Who and each scenario has it's own flavor.  You can listen to the fantasy based scenario or the one involving missing girls and zombies. 

See you at Grand-Con!
