Well Kate Brown went and vetoed the lane sharing bill! What the hell?!? We’re releasing this quick PSA on short notice as a call to all of our Oregon listeners to please contact their local senators and urge them to over-turn this unexpected veto to a bill that would improve the safety of all motorcyclists and scootists statewide.
This is another part of the big “2020 Close-out!” backlog rush, and as such the notes here are at a minimum.
In this character jam, we follow up on the previous Firefly jam, and finally make the most important character of all: our ship!
With Poppy and Xander abset, this time around JJ and NPC take a break from the normal format to record a fun bonus discussion with our good friend Alex Hakobian, developer of the Broadsword RPG. Our focus tonight is on the appeal and availability of “virtual tabletops” (VTTs) for playing RPGs online. We talk about the big fish in the VTT pond, as well as a number of additional offline and alternate options.
We’re bringing you a special bonus message from the Breakfast Puppies crew: Stay the Fuck Home! This mini-episode details how the four of us are dealing with the current COVID-19 aka Coronavirus outbreak and subsequent quarantine. If you’re looking for tips on how to stay sane, listen along. And if you are losing your shit, please join us online, reach out to us however you can. We’re here for you.
We’ve got another special bonus episode of Bikers Dice and Bars in the feed! JJ and NPC hit up the recent Gamestorm convention here in Portland, OR, and managed to grab some great interviews with a few of the passers-by, including the director of the convention itself. Tune in for some great gaming stories, and a taste of both the Gamestorm and the upcoming Wagoncon events. And don’t forget to catch us at Wagoncon next week, either!
Coming at you with another awesome drunken Character Jam, the Bikers Dice and Bars crew is back with our longest episode yet. This one was just too good to split into two, so sit back and enjoy an extended romp through the random hilarity of Palladium’s Nightbane Role-Playing Game!
Time for another Character Jam! We haven’t done one of these in a while, so we’re excited to be back on the jam. This time around, following up on our previous Fallout-themed episode, we’re taking a drunken crack at making characters for the new-ish “Umerican Survival Guide” RPG, from Shield of Faith Studios. It’s pure gonzo post-apocalyptic mayhem in the style of Thundarr and Korgoth, with some awesomely gruesome references to modern tropes. Enjoy!
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!
We’re once again joined by both Linsel and Poppy, this time to take a delightful romp through the character creation process of a charming new RPG called Pugmire. We drink a continuing variety of dog-themed beers and such, as we make a new pack of Good Dogs to go adventuring in this adorable anthropomorphic role-playing game. This is our longest episode yet, I do believe, but we had so much fun from beginning to end that it was difficult to cut anything at all!
Listen to us break Xander’s will to live with the second part (and conclusion!) to our Human Occupied Landfill (HoL) RPG Character jam!
