Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk


Ah, Tuesday. But also sort of a Monday, since it's the first day of the work week for many. I hope everyone had a good Monday regardless. I was happy with mine. Good and relaxing. But whether it's your first day of the work week or second, we can all use some gaming podcast to make the rest of it go by quick.

Today on the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 83: Whispers in the Dark with Matt Corley; Polyhedron Collider Episode 77: The Games we are looking forward to in 2020; Lords of the Dungeon Episode 35: Campaign Settings of the Past and Wizards in Role Playing Games; and Tabletop Talk Episode 57: Malifaux Deep Dive: Lucius (Guild).

I can breathe through my nose.

I know that that's not gaming news. But it's the first time I've really been able to, unobstructed, in almost a week. It's amazing the things we take for granted.

But yeah, I'm feeling better, and that makes me happy. Gaming podcasts also make me happy. So, let's get you some to listen to as we continue out the week.

Today on the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 82: Top RPG Podcasts of 2019; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 189: Return to The Dark Tower, Irish Gauge, Little Devils, Letter Press, Town Builder: Coevorden; Nerdherders Episode 35 (125): Ramblehammer 40k; 40K Radio Episode 46: Still Frost(y); The Secret Cabal Episode 198: Maracaibo and a Short Topic Extravaganza; and Tabletop Talk Episode 56: Malifaux Hot Topics with Kyle and Kevin.

Well, we've made it to Tuesday.

Barely, anyway. I didn't get much sleep last night and I think I might be getting sick. Not exactly what I want for the start of the year. But, in the meantime as we make our way through this first full week of 2020, we have a couple of podcasts we can listen to.

This week we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 81: Dracula, Maps, and Esoteric Enterprises with Emmy Allen; Singled Out Episode 100: Talking Talking With People; and Tabletop Talk Episode 55: Malifaux Path to Podium (TeddyFaux).

It's that weird, interim time between Christmas and New Year's. I've been enjoying a bit of a vacation, though it's not been everything I expected (hooray for sudden $500 car repairs for Christmas! Whee!), but it's been good to unwind. It seems most game companies are taking some time off, too. As you can tell from the bit of silence here (the news room isn't exactly flooded at the moment). Don't worry, the site's still going strong. We're taking the opportunity to rest and recoup some. Anyway, as you wait out your midnight celebrations, maybe tune in to some gaming podcasts.

On the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 79: Eberron with Keith Baker; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 80: A License to Game: An Hour with Ryan Dancey (originally recorded in 2014); Meeples & Miniatures Episode 283: Gaming Review of 2019; Game Classy Episode 202: Rise of Game Classy; Polyhedron Collider Episode 76: The Best Games of 2019; Tabletop Talk Episode 53: Playing Malifaux Online: Vassal with Dan Brown and Steve Johnston; Tabletop Talk Episode 54: Why Ray (and you) Should be Playing Marvel Crisis Protocol; Exploding Dice Radio Episode 13; Blight and Boon – A Godtear Podcast Episode 19: Organised Play Isn’t Just Tournaments; The D6 Generation Pip Episode 33: 2019 Prediction Results; The D6 Generation Pip Episode 34: 2020 Predictions; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 161: The Taverns of Tiefenthal; The Secret Cabal Episode 197: Sanctum, Auztralia and Our Christmas Wishlists; and The Offline Gamer Episode 44: Top Games of 2019.

We're making our way to the holidays, everyone. I actually have some vacation time coming up. It'll be nice to kick back and relax some. This is the slow time of year for news anyway, as I'm sure you've noticed. But I'll still be coming in to give you updates as time goes on. But before I can grab some gingerbread cookies and egg nog, I need to get through the week, as do the rest of us. That's where some gaming podcasts can help.

Tuesday. The work week is well underway. We're also into December. And, for me, that means it's time to get out the Steamroller. But between songs, it's good to break it up with some gaming podcasts. Don't want too much holiday all at once.

Tuesday of a rather abbreviated week for me. Thursday's Thanksgiving and Friday is Thanksgiving Recovery Day. That means it's just today and tomorrow before epic weekendness. Yesterday already went by quickly. So, let's see if we can keep that ball rolling through today. Some gaming podcasts should help.

Hello Tuesday. Welcome to the work week proper. I actually had yesterday off, thanks to Veteran's Day. Still got some posts in, but now we've got a whole slate for you. And while at the moment, I'm listening to the GNR weather outside, I will swap over to some gaming podcasts afterward. Which podcasts?

Tuesday. We're well established now into the work week and ready to keep chugging along, looking to get back to the weekend. I keep realizing that I've got D&D again this weekend. After last weekend being so busy, it's almost like, "Oh! Hey! I've got game again!" With all the stupid shennanigans we got into last game, it will be interesting to see what happens this week.

Tuesday. I mean, it's not Monday, so it's not all bad, but we're still just right at the beginning of the week. But, it's also the start of October. So we've got that going for us. October and November are my two favorite months, so I'm all for cooler temperatures (though here in Atlanta, "High 90, Low 70" just seems to be what we're going to have until January...) and my two favorite holidays. But before we can get to those, we just need to finish out the week. Let's help things along with our weekly podcasts.

Tuesday. The work week is well underway. I'm tired. Not sleeping well. Definitely need pick-me-ups. I've had my Sobe Citrus Energy this morning. I'm listening to Ska music, since it's good and high-energy. So, I might start my regular podcast-listening a little later than usual. But that's alright. You can still go ahead and listen. I don't mind. I'm alright with spoilers, too.

This week on the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 65: Harper’s Tale with Matt Corley; Lords of the Dungeon Episode 31: A Campaign Reborn, The End of the World and Warriors in Role Playing Games; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 69: Ragusa, Barrage, Mournequest, and Pipeline; Tabletop Talk Episode 39: Tara (Outcast) Deep Dive with Owen and Cody; and Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 180: City of the Big Shoulders, Era, Ecos, Blockbuster, Letter Jam, and more.

Tuesday. The work week's properly underway. I hope you weren't stumbling at the starting line and we can get through this relatively unscathed (not that the week's shaping up to be anything scary, but you never know). I've got D&D coming up again this week. We didn't have session 2 weeks ago because of Dragon*Con. So, I'm more than ready to get a game session in.

However, in the meantime, to speed the week along, let's listen to some gaming podcasts.

This week, on the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 64: Shadowrun Sixth World Edition Review with Darryl Mott; Geeks of the North Episode 84: Fall ramble; Singled Out Episode 95: Winning British Nationals 2019 with Coomber; The Secret Cabal Episode 190: Cthulhu A Deck Building Game, Root and Approachability in Board Games; Tabletop Talk Episode 38: Brewmaster (Bayou) Deep Dive with Roman and John; Game Classy Episode 195: Tyranid Bone Boys; and Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 154: Dead Man’s Cabal.

We've made it into the work week proper. It's Tuesday and that means the weekend is getting closer. For those here in the US, that means Labor Day is coming up. Time for the last summer beach trip. And, for those of us here in the Southeast, that means Dragon*Con. Personally, I will be staying OTP this upcoming weekend, but I know a lot of friends that are going. Either way, it's time to listen to some gaming podcasts.
