Tuesday. We've made it through the start of the week that is Monday and we're into the week proper. I'm ready for the weekend, which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. I'm always ready for the weekend. But, I mean... who isn't? Honestly? We all are. So, let's make the work week go by quickly with some gaming podcasts to listen to while we work.
This week on the dial we have: Drive Thru FM Episode 26: Questions and Answers; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 52: The Lazy Dungeon Master, Mike “SlyFlourish” Shea; Geeks of the North Episode 76: Pulp City is back!; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 269: Everything you ever wanted to know about six, but were too afraid to ask, Part II; Game Classy Podcast Episode 189: Grimace of Catan; Singled Out Episode 89: Discussing Season 4 Blacksmiths with Fraser McFetridge; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 203: Origins games with Emerson!; Tabletop Talk Episode 26: M3e Path to Podium with Alyx Drake; The D6 Generation Pip Episode 21: Joan of Arc & My 15 yo Daughter; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 34: From Origins to Endgame; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 173: Top 5 List, Imperial Settlers Roll & Write, Tiny Towns; and Lords of the Dungeon 28: Board Gamifying RPGs, Homebrew Settings and Campaign Settings We Want To Try.
This week, Morrus and Peter are joined by Mike Shea from SlyFlourish.com and author of the Lazy Dungeon Master series to talk about his new Kickstarter, Fantastic Adventures: Ruins of Grendleroot. In the news, Magic: The Gathering is getting a TV series, Baldur’s Gate 3 announced with a (rather gruesome) teaser cinematic trailer, A Touch More Class Kickstarter launch date announced, and more! Plus our Favorite Game in All the World and a brand new sketch!
This week, we have a mainly Pulp City themed show. That's what we both worked on hobby wise, and after that, we chat about the news of the game coming back with the partnership with Kitbash Games. We then talk about the new Scarab Mummy by Demented Games.
So sit back, relax, grab a paintbrush and enjoy the show!

In this episode Andrew talks to multi-award winner Fraser McFetridge about the Blacksmiths guild, who he uses in his team, and why.
Roy and Rob randomly add Emerson to the podcast and talk all the games!
Join Craig as his guest, Alyx Drake who reveals how he won the Breach the North II event. Anyone playing (or playing against) Ten Thunders should pay close attention. What was his path to the podium? What crews did he bring to each of the pools? How did he beat such a competitive field?
Russ has been playing the heck out of Mythic Games' "Time of Legends: Joan of Arc." He's back in his car, this time with a better mic, sharing the results and thoughts from his first few plays of the game with his daughter. Can a game this intimidating with this many models hold the attention of his 15-year-old daughter?
Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 34.
In this episode we start to wonder if we’re still truly Anonymous, talk more Starfinder before getting a very unexpected visit from Britney Spears, and once again speak directly to a listener in the hopes that we can somehow keep them out of prison.
We then talk to Heath and Johnathan of Panda Cult Games about Wander and Shovel Knight, invite listeners to join us for a game when we visit Origins, and Katie starts a spontaneous trivia game as we finally get a chance to discuss Avengers Endgame.
And last but not least, Geeky Jean returns to sit on the Iron Throne, Celebrity Deathmatch gives the cast of Avengers a spin, and Tim’s Sack gets sweaty and asks if you can smell what the Rock is cooking.
We are breaking our format a bit in this Episode by doing something we haven’t really done in the past. We list our Top 5 Games that we would not get rid of. However, there is a rule that we have to abide by, it must be on our shelves in order to be in the list. The game can’t be at someone else’s house or we have played and really liked, but never owned a copy. We must have a physical copy of the game in our possession. Some of these are out of print, but some you can easily still get.
Vanessa comes back to the mic and she and Marty review the new Imperial Settlers RnW game. She is always a joy to have on the show. After my plays of the game, I will say the mechanic of needing actions and resources something that people may have some challenges with, but after a couple of rolls, they should get it.
Enjoy the Episode and in the next one, Marty is going to knock our socks off with his Greatest Hits from Origins.
In today's episode the Lords start out by talking about the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon and the Brazilian car commercial recreating it in live action. Then the gang talks about the new Alien role playing game and the trend of RPGs being board gamifyied with cards, tokens and player boards. Then the Lords take a question from a listener asking if we prefer preexisting published campaign settings or homebrewing. Then finally the group lists many of the campaign settings that they would like to try one of these days.
