Two new Podcasts and Updates

We've got two new podcasts for your listening pleasure.  Also some updates.  

First the updates.  We are still working on getting our premium content podcasts up and running.  What we are currently working toward is splitting up the podcasts into three differing areas:

Tavern Ballads- These will be our public venue and convention games.

Epic Tales- These will be our premium games with higher sound quality made in our studio

Lost Lore- This will include all our B-side games, extra stuff, long term games that fizzled out, etc.  

More info on all of that later but know things are in the works.

Onward to Podcasts!

First up is an updated throwback.  That's right, the Bards make their way through the Tomb of Annihilation!

Next Keeper Alex runs us through Blackwater Creek in Call of Cthulhu.  It is a fun little scenario which I played at a convention once.  As you can see from the picture, everything going to be fine.

New Podcasts and Updates

The studio is coming together nicely!  In fact with a recent installation of carpet it is complete!  That means higher quality podcasts are on their way.  We are also working with an artist for some awesome artwork!  Expect things to start rolling out near the end of the month with a more regular schedule.  Until then, here are some one shot games to sate your appetite. 

Starting with some good ol' Call of Cthulhu.

Guy takes a seat as keeper to run the Bards through a Call of Cthulhu game set in Antiquity.  His title for the scenario, Blood and Glory  Very Roman indeed.

Next up we've got a board game special.  Mike recently kickstarted the awesome game Outpost 31 based off of the fantastic movie The Thing by John Carpenter.  If you have not seen that movie, do it right now, you will not be disappointed.  After that you can listen to the Bards spiral into paranoia. I mean anyone could be a duplicate right....right?

Podcasts are up!

This week we've got something old and something new.

First the old

First up we have a Mike the Half Human GM classic.  Mike ran the Call of Cthulhu introductory scenario Dead Boarder for a number of conventions and it was always a good time.  In fact one time my character did two vials of cocaine, failed his Con check, jumped out the window unharmed, and then was gunned down by Ben's police officer character and his cop buddies.  It was amazing.  I can guarantee this game won't end like that, but I'm sure things are not going to end great.

Onto the New

It's time to go back to Rappan Athuk with Mike Miller as the Magister using the terrific Realms of Fantasy gaming system.  This time our intrepid band of adventurers discover the most deadly of all the beasts that live to plague all that this good and beautiful.  Its.....Its.....Its...........OMG FROGS!!!!!

Aaaaahhhhh Good to the Last Drop!

Hello Everyone, we've got a double dose of Realms of Fantasy this week.

A group of seasoned heroes stop by a seemingly abandoned town to find a group of desperate townsfolk caught in the fight of their lives.  They are running low on food and cut off by a group of goblins in the old dwarven mine.  The heroes, being in in for good and gold, offer to lend a hand.  But something in strange about these goblins, they seem to have...strange powers and the townsfolk, they look a little well armed for a group of peasants.  We Hate Bards presents an introductory scenario for the Realms of Fantasy Gaming System: Good To the Last Drop part One and part Two.

Remember....potions be dangerous.

Call of Cthulhu and Runequest

Welcome back!

First some news!  We are officially fully into the studio.  How do you gauge being fully moved in?  Well the library is once again fully together and better than ever!  We even had to buy a new bookshelf to hold our GURPs stash.  We'll be recording new podcasts over there for higher sound quality and production (stay tuned for more later).  Now onward to some podcasts!

First up we've got Guy running some Call of Cthulhu.  Guy takes us back, way back, keep going, past the middle ages, keep going, past Rome, nope past the Ancient Egyptians, nope not there yet, there you go, everyone living in caves and fighting dangerous animals, perfect.  That's right, its a special Neanderthal based Call of Cthulhu adventure.

Next we have got more Runequest!  In this episode Our Gang gets into some serious trouble, trouble involving one of our most dangerous enemies, the immobile and ever dangerous pit!
