In this episode we welcome our good friend Kylee, one of the most interesting human beings we know here in the city of Portland. Kylee regales us with stories of weird bar fights, his time as an acrobat and stilt walker, and his venture into running a company that makes home-roasted spicy peanut butter (and it’s delicious, too).
Just Jacob continues as guest host in this new batch of episodes, starting with one where we do a check-in on our home campaigns. NPC has just started a new Palladium Fantasy 1E campaign, JJ is starting up a Delta Green game, and hints are dropped on a new semi-secret project in the works behind the scenes. Drop by our Discord and tell us about your own games!
Effing paired weapons, how do they work? And I don’t wanna talk to a scientist. Instead, just give us a listen as we lay out the basics of the skill, and most importantly how it ties seamlessly into the oft-forgotten “simultaneous attack” defense option in Palladium combat. Did we miss something, or get it wrong? Drop by our Discord and share your thoughts!
Ever want to know what modifiers apply to your Strike, Parry, and Dodge rolls in Palladium’s combat system? In this episode we lay it all out for you. Give us a listen, then drop by our Discord server to tell us what we missed!
Today NPC and Just Jacob dive into discussion of a topic that is guaranteed to devolve into flame wars every time it appears anew in a RPG community: Fudging Dice Rolls! As everyone does, we have some thoughts and opinions of our own, and we’re here to converse. GIve us a listen, then drop by our Discord to tell us how wrong we are! I kid. Mostly.
Just Jacob is back again as we take a look back at the origins of Palladium’s Fantasy RPG, and discuss the assumptions of gaming awareness that permeated the hobby back in the day. If you haven’t tried the first edition of the game, we highly recommend it, both as a damn solid game and also as a look into an important era of the hobby’s history.
For the next several episodes, Just Jacob joins us again as a guest host, as Matthew has had some medical issues preventing him from recording. For this first of a new batch of discussions, we talk about the idea of “min-maxing” characters for fun and profit, and take a stab at defending the practice in moments where it makes the most sense. Drop by discord afterward and share stories of your favorite min-maxed characters!
