We’re back with another Character Jam episode! In each of these episodes, we record ourselves drunkenly attempting to make characters for a new role-playing game. This time we’re tackling one of my all-time favorite games, “The Nightmares Underneath” by Johnstone Metzger. It’s yet another “retro” style of game – we apparently do a lot of these because they’re pretty simple to go through as a bunch of drunks. Enjoy!
Yes, in this episode, we finally complain about E-Scooters, hooray! Once again we’ve brought Linsel along, more or less upgrading his prestige class to “Regular Host” on our show. Our drinks of the evening are a couple of delicious varieties of Linsel’s own “Switchel” recipe, brought to us in mason jars and mixed at the table with Louisiana’s own Bayou Rum. In our first segment, we talk about the concept of “the last mile” in traveling, and then relentlessly bitch about e-scooters. In our second segment, we discuss the “Last Turn” of board and video games, debating which games do them well, and which ones totally screw them up. In our third segment, we discuss the sanctity of “Last Call” at your favorite bar, and how not to fuck it up. We close with a short tale about Xander’s recent trip to his new favorite bar in the nation.
In the the fourth and infal episode of the initial recording session, The Wolves of Zaramund conclude their first combat encounter. Stick around for the next sessions to come, as the Wolves of Zaramund venture deeper into THE BLACK LAIR OF THE VAMPIRE COUNT (lightning crash)!
The Wolves of Zaramund continue their first combat encounter in episode 3 – part three of the initial four-episode recording launch.
The first adventure of the Wolves of Zaramund continues in episode 2! This time, we finally step into the dungeon to see what’s inside the very first room… This is the second part of the initial four-episode recording launch.
Welcome to a brand new randomly-generated comedic gaming adventure! This episode kicks off a new series of session recordings with an all-new adventuring party comprised of some of my favorite local gamers. Calling themselves the Wolves of Zaramund, this all-women group (at least initially) joins the HAMMERCRAWL! annals with their very special and very awesome take on a classic tale of spurned-love revenge – albeit set in a Vampire Dungeon in 1997! This initial batch of four episodes was recorded in a single session, and broken down for ease of listening. We have more episodes with the Wolves to follow, as well!
This episode is all about “That Guy” we all know and hate (and have likely been at one point ourselves), and how not to be That Guy. Be it riding like an asshole, being a crappy sport at the gaming table, or failing to compose yourself properly at a bar, we talk about many of the variants of That Guy in our mutual hobbies, and how to step back from the precipice when you find yourself about to become him.
