Hey look at us, we are 138! Now that that is stuck in your head, in this episode we discuss the development of good character backstories in RPGs (and especially in Palladium). There are some dos and don’ts to go over, so give us a listen and then join our Discord to share your own takes on the topic of story-building!
Today we’re talking about a crucial part of all role-playing games: effectively recording your character’s numbers and details. Long-time readers and players of Palladium games are probably very familiar with the mega-dense official character sheets that appear in many of their books, and there are a few really awesome fan-made sheets out there as well. What are your favorite sheets and/or methods? Drop by Discord and share!
Just Jacob is with us again to update our discussion on Online Gaming to the current era of 2023. A LOT has changed in the online gaming scenes since our first episode on the topic, so give us a listen to hear our current tools and methods. Then drop by our Discord and share your own tips!
Today’s Rules Talk is all about using shields in the Palladium RPG rules system. We unsurprisingly have a lot to say on the matter, so strap on your buckler and give us a listen. Afterward, drop by Discord and share your own takes on the rules!
Today we’re continuing our run through the Palladium Fantasy world books, starting a new chapter in the saga with the first of the official 2nd Edition-only releases: The Western Empire. This is a highly detailed look on the Empire of Sin and all its warring political factions. Which of the factions is YOUR favorite? Drop by our Discord and share!
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.
