Updates and Podcasts

Conventions season is right around the corner, with our hometown convention of Grand Con coming this September.  The Bards have their games in and ready to go!  This year it is going to be downtown Grand Rapids in a new venue.  Bigger and Better.

Rappan Athuk has ended for the summer, which makes me sad, but it will renew after Grand Con.  Just to give you a little taste we end up fighting some really nasty frogs.

Speaking of Realms of Fantasy, this coming Friday at 6 PM, the Bards are running the second part of an introduction to the system with special guest Mike Miller.  It will be at the The Gamer's Wharf, which is a fairly new, and awesome, gaming store.

And onward to podcasts.


The Doctor Is In!  Our motley band of space heroes have finally met the infamous doctor.  Now it's time to give him a terminal case of lead poisoning!


More Runequest!  Now that Our Gang is finally out of the backwater that is Pavis, and moved into the new backwater of Sartar, it's time to do what we do best, get into trouble.

Dungeon Crawl Classics

We've got Dungeon Crawl Classics!


This time Wyl rounds up another mob of hapless villagers for a level 0 character funnel.  I'm sure nothing is going to go wrong and everyone will live.  If you want to know how the meat, er I mean characters were made check out the Character Creation.

And of course we also have more NSDC...


Luke continues in this unnamed episode the adventures of those questing for gold, glory, and dungeons!

Rappan Athuk is Back

First up News!

The Bards have committed to another convention coming for this season.  It will be a one day convention this October.  More info to come as we get into the season.


Also, I received half of the Punktown RPG for review.  I know I've been saying this for a while now, but it is almost here...  I cannot wait to start a campaign in this world.  If you have not already read the amazing book of short stories  the RPG is based on, I cannot recommend it highly enough.  

Now onward to podcasts.


First up it's some New School Dungeon Crawl.  This time around the party has to deal with some murdering genies. 


Next it's more Rappan Athuk using the Realms of Fantasy RPG system.  This time we've got ghouls, lots and lots of ghouls.

So begins the Funnel



I think it's about time we rounded up the peasantry and go after some bad guys that are way out of our league!


Wyl starts out this meatgrinder with a run in a run in with some Evil Frogs.  If you want to see how they made the meat, er I mean characters you can check our the Character Creation.



Well the Space Buccaneers are hot on the trail of a human supremacist doctor that will get them some mad reputation.  Now it's off of the space train and into space human supremacist mountain.  I'm sure it will all go fine.


And GM continues his excellent Force and Destiny Campaign Empire of the Destined Age.

Have a good weekend!

Podcasts are Now!

Like I promised, we've got the Podcasts!  A selection of five for your listening pleasure.

First up Mike the Half Human Keeper runs another group of corpses, er I mean investigators through The Derelict scenario.

Next up Mike the Half Human GM continues the ever popular Old School Dungeon Crawl.

Mike Miller continues the excellent epic module Rappan Athuk using the Realms of Fantasy RPG system.  This time around the group deals with some curses and makes a new friend.


I finally got a group together to give Tremulus a proper test.  It went fantastic, so much so that I am planning on using the system at our upcoming conventions.  In this part, one of many to follow, a group of investigators are owed a favor to a pure, upright, and not at all evil Dr. Johnson.  All they have to do is head to a small town and pick up a girl. Simple, right?

And lastly CN GM Luke runs the New School Dungeon Crawl.  There was no tag on the episode, so it shall hereby be named as another unnamed episode.

Have a good night everyone,
