In this Episode Brendan Carrion and Adam Sink are joined by none other than the elusive Aleks aka “Legion” to discuss the relative merits and flaws of OSR gaming vs. their “Vintage” or “Classic” counterparts. We wrestle with a concept pitched to us by Jamie at Colosseum Rex in Sunderland:
“Do we need creators to emulate bygone systems or games when we live in a world where we have access to the original games from that time period, whether in physical copies via eBay, Amazon etc or pdfs”

Ahoy ahoy dweebs! WE ARE BACK!
And almost, almost on schedule too.
This time on Full Metal RPG we have Ben back in the saddle with Adam and Brendan and that makes for some spirited conversation. Apparently Ben is having one of those days…when you don’t wanna wake up.
Jim Miller stops by to give us the latest updates to Crit Hit, so check in for that.
And then the meat of our show, LISTENER GAME REVIEWS. That’s right, we review some original gaming material developed, produced and sent in to us by listeners.
We start things off with a review of “Nightmares of the Dead Dreamers” by James Vail, a full roleplaying game complete with system and setting available from Drive Thru RPG at Pay What You Want Pricing.
We follow that up with “Days of Blight” by Matt Rauscher, an adventure module available from the DMs Guild for $9.95.
We mix in some “jokes” too.

Better late than never is still a thing, right?
Adam and Brendan return, a full 9 days past due to serve you up some Forever Knight episodes in a can. Since we’ve been so remiss about covering FK, we’ve got THREE WHOLE EPISODES.
Can you even?!
BECAUSE YOU’VE WAITED LONG ENOUGH GAWD DAMMNIT.
Brendan and Adam return from the badlands to bring you more fresh takes on roleplaying games, Star Wars, comic cons, miniatures wargaming and of course… more roleplaying games.
Don’t call it a comeback, tonight we’ve got BANGERS ONLY, BITCH.
Oh man, this episode is late, so very very late! We were supposed to have this bad boy posted on the 15th, and now it is the 23rd! Sorry everyone!
Anyway, in this belated episode we sit down with EyeProfet, one of the hosts of Gloryhoundd and the Uninvited Gamers and discuss Palladium gaming including Rifts, Beyond the Supernatural and the good old TMNT tabletop RPG from the halcyon days of the first eighties. We wax nostalgic (as usual) and Brendan insists on making everything about Nightbane. Enjoy!
Happy New Year Muthaphuckaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhsss!!!
Well, 2016 has been a long and bloody one but we manged to end it on a high note, reviewing Diogo Nogueria’s Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells available from Drive Thru RPG. We get salty about Vampire – the Giovanni Chronicles, Warhammer 40k and Star Wars: Rogue One and Full Metal Ben and Shadowsworn Adam deal out some very “fresh” takes.
Wait a minute, are you still here? We didn’t alienate the shit out of you with our last episode? But we’re such assholes!
Anyway, for this episode we recruited two additional assholes to sit in. One is Ben in from his other gig on FMRPG. The other is the homie Mike who runs Wraith games. So, we’re gonna talk about Wraith. This is part of what we hope to become an ongoing thing where we talk about games other than effing Vampire.
We hope you enjoy.
There is some music on here from a band called Method Cell, and the final track is from VNV Nation. Knock yourself out kids.
Oh, it is the most joyous of days! In this episode Brendan and Ben are joined by the third member of the Forsaken Triumvirate, Shadowsworn Adam to celebrate the birthday of the podcast you love to hate, FULL METAL RPG. We drink bubbly, we blow out candles, we recount what is best in life and what is worst. Mostly we just blather incoherently about games, but after a year… it’s what you’ve come to expect! Join us in our celebration! LISTEN NOW!

Brendan and Adam convene once again with reviews of the video presentations of the Grand Masquerade panel and subsequent Q&A. We review Forever Knight, Episode 3, and then tear into the panels. Take a listen if you haven’t seen the videos yourself, or you just want to hear or overwrought thoughts on the future and direction of White Wolf and it’s associated properties.
Music by Our Lady of Shadows, Fred Mollin, Bell, Book & Candle and In Strict Confidence
Well here we are once again witches and wolves! In Episode 31 of FMRPG that scurrilous bastard Ben peaces out on Brendan and gaming mastermind Jim Miller gets called in as a hired gun to help keep things in order. This week the Full Metal crew is joined by the homies Richard and Darryl of the Wrecking Crew and Podcast: the Wreckening. They talk about all manners of gaming and then there’s some talk about gaming cons, especially the upcoming Arizona Game Fair. Listen in and let us know how you like the show! Thanks for tuning in cultists!
We got art my Rich Nerdgore, Music by Legion, Wolves in the Throne room and Sepultura! Get at it!
