Welcome to our first episode of BDaB Character Jam! This is the first of a planned series of bonus content for the Bikers, Dice, and Bars podcast! In these episodes we break out various tabletop role-playing game and get hands-on with their character creation processes. We record these after our main show sessions, so we’re all usually pretty sauced by the time the game hits the table, which means that our filters are almost nonexistent. For this first episode, we are making characters for the popular “new old school” role-playing game, Dungeon Crawl Classics! And joining us this time is our good friend, Poppy Beaujolais, who we expect to hear more from in the coming weeks.
Our third episode of our brand new show is live! In this episode we start with a pretty passionate discussion about the “Motorcycle Wave” and what it means to us. Following that we discuss our experiences with the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG, and Xander tells us about an awesome video game called _Life is Strange_. We close out the show with an in depth guide on how to get the most bang for your buck when drinking at a dive bar. This episode rounds out our three-episode launch day bracket, and we hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording!
Hello friends, we’re back for an exciting second episode, hooray! This time around our new drink of the evening is the “uncertain enjoyment” of the Crownberry. After managing to somehow stomach this bizarre concoction, we talk about perceptions of cyclists in our town pf PDX and beyond. In the nerd section we discuss two upcoming conventions here in the Pacific Northwest that we are all pretty excited about. We close out with discussions of our favorite local dive bars, and the different features that we each feel are required for a bar to be rightfully bestowed that label. Oh, and Dr. Gerrymander has some “choice words” for JJ’s character somewhere in the mix…
It’s our first episode and we’re thrilled to be here! We open with our first drink of the series, the solid dive bar classic of a Jack and Beer Back. After that we move to talking about the bikes we ride and the bikes we’ve lost, how we met, and the games that started our nerdly hobbies. Wrapping up the episode is a conversation of our first drinks, and notes on our continued excitement for the sessions to follow.
