BDaB Bonus: Wagoncon 2018 Post-Con Report

With Xander out due to illness, NPC, Just Jacob, and Poppy spend an evening drinking Kalimotxo and talking about their experiences at the recent Wagoncon event in The Dalles, OR. This episode goes pretty off the reails so we decided to keep it shorter and make it a bonus release. Thanks again for listening, and we hope to see you all at Wagconcon in 2019!

BDaB #008: Touring, Gaming as Social Therapy, and Karaoke Bars

Xander’s back, hooray! Our drink of the evening is one of NPC’s old time favorites, the **Royal Crown Royal**, which is nothing more than [Crown Royal whiskey]( mixed with [Royal Crown Cola](, over ice. We kick off our topics with a discussion about the joys of Touring on motorcycles and bicycles, including tips for the road and how to pack the necessities. In our second segment, we talk about the concept of the Gaming Group as a major social hub, and then unexpectedly drift into a conversation about using role-playing as a form of self-therapy. We wrap up with a chat about our favorite times at Karaoke bars in the Portland area. And we even recorded a new Character Jam bonus episode afterward, so stay tuned for that to come later!

HAMMERCRAWL! Episode 1: The WAGONCRAWL! (Part One)

This episode is the first of three dungeon parties from an absolutely amazing live-audience session at the recent Wagoncon 2018 event in The Dalles, OR. We’ve been recording dozens of studio sessions for this podcast already, and this was our first attempt at running the mics during a public event. Despite a few mechanical distractions, I’m glad to say things worked out smashingly! This event was so enjoyable that we thought it would make the perfect kick-off for this podcast feed. I’m excited to share it with you, and I hope that you’ll stick around for the many more episodes that will follow.
