Episode 17: The Gen Con Decompression Session

This week Dan & Tim, along with new guest Shannon (yes, she does exist!) have a full discussion on their weekend in Indianapolis! From rampaging over fake bananas and broken treadmills to nearly being ran over by Wil Wheaton, we discuss all our experiences. Other highlights include an impromptu Fate Core game, multiple critical misses while fighting gods, ire over people with hand carts & strollers in the exhibit hall, Gary choosing "Meth," the cadre of various incarnations of the Doctor, abusing the privelege of free coffee from Mayfair Games, and our agreed-upon love of Steak N' Shake.

And we end with some fun Gen Con stories as Tim & Dan are quite excited for their upcoming trip.

Episode 14: Things That Go "Splat"

We're Daveless again this week, but Tim & Dan bring in John & Jim for some lively discussion! This week, we discuss the usage, over usage, and preferences concerning so-called "Splat-Books," expansions which add to the combat rules with new options or methods. We also have a DM horror story session, where Tim is shocked to learn he is not the subject of one of John's stories.
