FMRPG 037 – “OSR” Gaming vs. “Vintage” Gaming

Whaddup Cultists?!

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”

Oh, it is the most joyous of days!

Episode 30 – Mailbag Dos: Last Train to Hell

Well amigo, the hour is nigh. You can only outrun the law for so long and then they put a silver bullet, dipped in holy water right between your fuckin’ shoulders. Now I hear that forlorn cry in the distance compadre, the sound of that one way ticket to Hell come to carry me away. I guess I’ll lay here in the dirt, waiting for El Diablo Maior to come carry me away, and you can read me this here letter from my dear ol’ paw back east. He knew I’d never make nuthin’ of myself. I never was very booksmart. Now, I’ll answer whatever he asks, but you gotta get word back to him ya hear? Is is a deal amigo? *cough cough*

In this SUPER LONG episode Brendan and Ben are met at the creepy crossroads of fate by the Grim Reaper himself taking a stroll with the Warlord Amanda. We get to talkin’ about our takes on some queries put to us by devoted listeners. We hope you’ll take a listen and walk with us for a while.

Episode 29 – A Small Padded Cell with Jim Miller

You thought you could lock the crazy IN, didn’t you, you naive fucks. But did you ever think about locking the crazy OUT? I didn’t think so. So here we are on Saturday night clutching our proverbial nuts and gritting our teeth through the electroshock therapy. Well guess what! It’s a new Episode! Jim Miller is back! Listen in on our lunatic ravings! Music by Legion, Ghost, and the Bay City Rollers

Episode 28 – Beneath – The Inverted Church Kickstarter Review

In this episode Brendan and Ben keep it short and sweet with an in depth discussion of what’s new with gaming followed by a review of Justin Sirois’ Beneath: The Inverted Church currently gathering pledges on Kickstarter. And homie, let me tell you, it’s a doozey! So check out the episode and consider hitting up Kickstarter and maybe grabbing yourself a copy. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll barf up chunks. Is this Wayne’s World? Did you read to the bottom? Congratulations! No listen to the episode.

Episode 27 – GMing Stylez of the Lich and Slaymous

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.

Full Metal RPG – Episode 26 – Lamentations of the Heather Girlfriend

POST CAFFEINE REHAB Brendan digs into topics with Full Metal Ben, the Warlord Amanda and his sponsor, Dr. Drew. Lotta rambling diatribes in this episode, but eventually Brendan does manage to get around to talking about his Lamentations of the Flame Princess game. Heather comes on the show and off the air does a mic drop, puts both hands up in the air and proclaims “I DID AWESOME!” Brendan shakes his head a lot and tries to remember the days when doing a podcast about roleplaying games with all of his friends sounded like a GOOD idea. Are you still reading this? For chirstsake, listen to the show!

Full Metal RPG – Episode 25: I Can’t Believe We Paid For This With Keith

Neworld Papers

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!
