Monday went by quick. Now, Tuesday is doing much the same. At least, so far. We'll see if it keeps up. Also, Happy St. Patrick's Day. I'm half-Irish, myself. Just remember to celebrate responsibly. And maybe listen to some gaming podcasts while you have a pint.
This week on the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 91: Professional Dungeon Masters; Nerdherders Episode 37(127): The Resolution Will Be Televised; Lords of the Dungeon Episode 37: Puzzles, Letting your DM Down Easy and Playing Religious Characters in Fantasy Games; The D6 Generation Pip Episode 38: Warcaster Interview with Privateer Press; and Tabletop Talk Episode 65: Malifaux Tactica: Fate Deck and Control Hand with Ray Flynn.
This week, Morrus and Peter discuss professional Dungeon Masters including a hands-on review of hiring someone to run a Dungeons & Dragons game for you. In the news, Fantasy Flight’s roleplaying games and the Lord of the Rings licenses have both found new homes, new information about Baldur’s Gate 3, the top 5 bestselling RPGs, Origins Award nominees announced, Ed Greenwood returning to write Forgotten Realms, and more! Plus a brand new sketch about how dire a dire badger actually is.
The Nerdherders break into 2020 with a slew of hobby resolutions! What do they want to do more of? What are they tired of? Listen and find out!
In episode 37, the lords begin by discussing a recent encounter from their own game involving a puzzle that was a bit too hard for them to figure out and how they feel about puzzles as encounters. Then the gang takes a question from a listener regarding how to talk to your dungeon master about a game in which the players aren't having fun. How do you let them down easy? And finally, the Lords jump the main discussion about clerics and other religious characters and the ins and outs of playing a person who believes and service the greater gods.
Craig and Russ chat with William “Oz” Schoonover and William Hungerford from Privateer Press about the new game Warcaster: Neo-Mechanika. Join us as we find out what makes Warcaster a unique sci-fi miniature war game.
Join Ray as he takes questions about the fate deck and control hand from the audience.
