BDaB Character Jam 15: Advanced Dungeons and Dragons (1st Ed)

FINALLY! We’ve had a lot of tech difficulties in the last month, resulting in two “lost” episodes and a whole new approach to the entire way we record. Hopefully things are worked out, so for now, here’s our latest new character jam! This time we try our hand at drunkenly making characters for Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 1st Edition. And spoilers: it does not go well, but it’s still hilarious through to the end.

HAMMERCRAWL! Dungeon Full of Monsters Part 2: Two Mollusks and a Dwarf

Our special new extended campaign continues with its second session, here on the HAMMERCRAWL! comedic dungeon crawl podcast! While our process is usually 100% generated on the fly through a mix of improv and quick-draw cards, for this campaign we’re using the wonderful DUNGEON FULL OF MONSTERS (by Johnstone Metzger) as the underlying dungeon into which our probably-doomed adventurers are delving. Will Spandrel’s will bring order to this chaotic cesspit of evil? Will anyone manage to escape with their limbs intact? Tune in and find out!

HAMMERCRAWL! Dungeon Full of Monsters Part 1: That Garlic-Flesh Smell

Welcome to the beginning of a whole new adventure on the HAMMERCRAWL! comedic dungeon crawl podcast! As always, every aspect of our play is randomly generated via a mix of random tables, inspirational cards, and pure unfiltered improvisation. This time, however, we’re changing things up a bit by taking a stab at an actual published dungeon: the excellent DUNGEON FULL OF MONSTERS by Johnstone Metzger! This dungeon is a perfect component for HAMMERCRAWL!-style gaming, as the entire structure and flow of it is driven by its own random tables, right down to how the very dungeon rooms are assembled.

HAMMERCRAWL! Gamestorm 2019, Part 3: Feelings are Healthy

The Gamestorm 2019 live event recording now concludes in the third and final part of this saga. This three-parter was recorded at the Gamestorm convention this past March, right here in Portland, Oregon. As with all of our convention and one-shot gaming events, this game was played “hot seat” style, with new players rotating in every time a party member died in the dungeon. It’s always a roaring good time, and this event was no exception! So we hope you enjoy yet another delve into the randomly-generated insanity of HAMMERCRAWL!

BDaB #028: Summer Camp Special

Hop in the saddle and ride on down to Camp BDaB, and join us for our Summer Camp special! No, we’re not actually at a summer camp, but instead we’re here to talk about all things Camp-related. Our good friend Alex sits with us this evening, helping us down a mix of white russians and black russians, poured by Just Jacob. In our Bike Talk segment, we discuss tips and methods for safe and effective bike-camping, both motorized and non. In our Game Talk segment, we talk about various camp-frieneldy games, both those to play while out in the woods as well as those more appropriate for sitting ’round the fire. In our Bar Talk segment, we discuss the portable bar, and what drinks make for the most effective (and traditional) camp beverages. And stick around for some bonus goodies after the credits!

BDaB Character Jam 12: HAMMERCRAWL!

It’s time for another Character Jam, woooo! In preparation for a new batch of upcoming recordings for our sister podcast, this time we’re going through the newly-completed HAMMERCRAWL! RPG character creation system. This one’s an entirely home-brewed game system, cobbled together from what were once just house rules merging a dozen other old school gaming systems. Our HAMMERCRAWL! games have consistently been the most awesome tabletop experiences for us, and this session is no exception. And check out the links further below in the notes for our other show, as well as the free online rules for HAMMERCRAWL!
