Hail! Blasphemers! Brendan and Ben just returned from the long month of August, where they spend the final weeks deep in the bowels of the Shadow Fathoms eating psychotropic myconid children and tripping balls super hard with the dark elf shadowmancer Dripztt and Raistlington the dwarven mega-wizard. When they returned they found a raven had brought word from Archlictor Miseophant in California seeking some blackened homilies on the craft of gaming. So they rounded up that fucker Shadowsworn Adam from the slave galley he was pirating and summoned The Mysterious Jeff from the Cthonous Depths and here you have it bitches, four dudes talking about how they think it should be done.
Everyone is at Gen Con checking out what’s the haps for the next year of gaming and I’m just sitting here looking at my Instagram feed like:
Have fun at Gen Con foolios. Have some great games and come back and tell us everything. Grab some of that LE swag for your homies at FMRPG, the DM says you’ll get extra XP for it.
What’s up muthafuckas?!
While you are all trolling the halls of Gen Con you may need some sweet-ass-sweet podcast talk to get you by. At least maybe for that drive home.
In this week’s episode Brendan and Ben are winding down from con season and the disastrous LepreCon while you guys are out there enjoying it’s zenith. They are joined by the Mysterious Jeff for the first half and then by their homie Keith in the second half. It’s our longest episode yet, and really it’s pretty not bad. Except for the technical issues we had recording Keith, that was terrible!
We talk about what we’ve been up to, what’s new with our favorite lines and the past, present and future of pulp fiction with our friend Keith Shaw.
Anyway, pull up a chair, crack a beer, paint some models, whatever. Here’s to episode 25!
Portrait of a playa: KB Shaw.
Here’s a link to not only one of my favorite comics about roleplaying, but really, one of my favorite comics ever. Here at Full Metal RPG we fucking love this thing. But it’s a joke people, I mean seriously. I’ve caught some blowback in the gamer community for handing these things out at events and using them as our card with our contact info.
I guess I forgot about that legendary gamer sense of humor.
Anyway, read on and enjoy! If you like what you see, check out the indie movie based on the tract. Also hilarious but in a much more self aware way.
In which sleep deprivation and a day of virtual mayhem combine to make everyone just a little bit giddy. Special guest stars Jim Miller, Warlord Amanda, Shadowsworn Adam, Richard Newby, and PhillyC! This one was a lot of fun to record.
Join in the fun at the Crit Hit Facebook group. Weirdos only. Neckbeards and squares forbidden.
oh boy…here we go.
Brendan and Ben get LepreCon’d! In which we learn an important lesson about the makeup of the gaming community and the atrocious lack of hygienic standards.
In which… Brendan and Ben return from the wastes. They have been exploring exaggerated landscapes. Exaggerated deserts. Exaggerated swamps. Those crazy forests where the trees have evil faces. They have battled. They have leveled up. And now they are back to lead the cult to new frontiers, new vistas. The greatest challenges are yet to come…
In which Brendan and Ben are joined by none other than Josh of the Wrecking Crew and their podcast, Podcast: the Wreckening. The three talk about the difference between rules light and rules heavy as opposed to crunchy vs. not crunchy.
Get with our homies at the internationally renown Wrecking Crew here:
In which Brendan and Ben are joined by Randy, a GM’s GM. Randy talks about the epic, long running game he has been crafting and the monster manual he is producing so that you can share some of his adventures at you table. Brendan needs more than just a protein shake after working-out and he and Ben find a way to make it all about the Kickstarters! Yea!
In which Ben and Brendan are joined once more by the Warlord Amanda and they make the art contained within roleplaying books their entire subject. Many digressions and Brendan probably talks more than he should.
Here’s some art by that dumb fuck Brendan Carrion (aka Vampire Cop):
