We talk about games, gamers, and gamer life.
||ExplicitEpisode 374 - Spoiler Club: Luke Cage||It's time to talk about Luke Cage. We spend an hour doing so, and yet somehow fail to talk about Luke Cage or Mike Colter. Weird.||10/26/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 373 - Avoiding the Data Dump||How do you avoid exposition in games? How can you make it interesting? We discuss some ways that have worked for us.||10/19/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 372 - Death in Games||We discuss that one thing that every game assumes but never actually happens - death. Are we just namby-pamby babies who hate to see a dead character, or is it the solution to all of our problems? The grave holds its secrets...||10/12/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 371 - The 5Ws of Roleplaying||Mark brings out the journalism to discuss the 5Ws of Roleplaying. The most important question, we quickly determine, is "Why?" and we spend most of the time talking about it. That's why.||10/5/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 370 - Fame & Reputation in Games||We discover the ephemeral nature of reputation and reputation management when we discuss the vagaries of fame in games. No one ends up more famous, which just makes the whole thing pointless.||9/28/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 369 - Bringing the World to the Players||How do you handle travel? How easy is it for the players to communicate with each other? How have we gotten along without having this very important conversation?||8/24/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 368 - MkIII Redux||The rules are out, so we delve into our final diagnosis of the new Warmachine and Hordes rule set. Everyone wins, except Chris.||8/17/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 367 - The Complete Book of Adventures||We talk about our most loved property - the pre-written adventure. We discuss the merits and flaws of the format and what we've learned from them. The house is on fire.||7/27/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 366 - Ars Ghostica||None of us believe in ghosts, but we do believe in talking about them! Chris discusses his obsession with ghost shows, while Jim and Mark mock him. It's heartwarming.||7/20/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 365 - Legacies||We talk about games that get revisited, campaigns that return to previous campaigns, and the importance of Star Wars' genealogy. There's plenty of personal stories, so tune in.||6/22/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
Fun, irreverent, roleplaying podcast
These guys have put together a really good quality podcast that explores their take on a wide variety of roleplaying subjects. You can tell the hosts love roleplaying and aren't afraid to give their opinions...which is what makes it so fun. And the sound quality is top-notch. This is quickly becoming my favorite RPG podcast.
Great podcast, nice variety of gaming topics.
This podcast has it all, plus, well rounded subject matter as far as gaming is concerned. Weak point: the explicit tag.
A podcast I originally wanted to hate but now feeling only the love . . .
I came to know of THACO only shortly before the demise of "the other podcast". And I have to admit, as much as I loved Fell Calls, here the guys excel. You make it very casual and it shows. It lacks the fatigue of Plycon's Whatever and the "Jump the Shark" episode and exposes me to games I have not played or ideas for ones that I will. Thanks guys . . . you rock!
