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!
We made it through our first year! We recorded this episode as a first anniversary special. Breaking out the Red Breast 15-Year and the ever-popular Yellow Spot, we break from the usual Biking-Gaming-Drinking segment flow, and go a little free-form on this one.
Ho-lee Heck-balls, folks, we unexpectedly got a wee bit tanked on this episode, thanks first to over-strong pours of a mixed drink we’d never had before, and then doubly again due to DXG’s surprise addition of some soon-to-be-gone-forever Bridgeport beers. It’s a bit of a wild ride! We had a lot of fun with this one, and despite some meandering along tangents at times, it was a joyous occasion, and we hope you enjoy listening.
It’s time for a very special Valentine’s Day episode of Bikers, Dice, and Bars! Linsel and Doctor Xander Gerrymander couldn’t join us for this one due to prior romantic commitments, and it’s a damn shame too, as Poppy surprised the rest of us with a bottle of Yellow Spot Irish Whiskey!
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!
Welcome back to the show, good friends! For our 22nd episode, we’re taking you on a trip through the WASTELAND! All the while, we’re drinking what we felt like were “last minute appropriate” wasteland drinks, the kind of which you might find in your journeys out there in the Boston Commonwealth…
Kicking off the new year right, we’re back for episode 21 of the podcast! We invited our good friend The Mad Marquis to join us as a special guest as we look ahead to all the biker-y, gamer-y, and drink-y plans we have for the coming year. Afterword, the Marquis gives us insight into the Portland Oregon Burlesque performance scene, and his history of involvement with it. All the while, (some of) our hosts enjoy Jacob’s overly-strong take on a classic Spanish Coffee.
Hot damn, we made it twenty episodes! This time we’re celebrating with what is probably the beer most commonly brought to every house party in Portland, Full Sail Brewing Company’s “Session” lager! In our Bike Talk segment, we talk about the “ghost bike” phenomenon, and go over some unexpectedly interesting stats on cyclist deaths over the recent years. In our Game Talk segment, we talk about how to keep your game going and your group together through the schedule-destroying times of the late holiday season. In our Bar Talk segment, we talk about bar fights – how to avoid them and how to survive them.
This time we have two special guests in the studio, Andre and Alma of the local klesmer-gypsy-punk band Chervona! Our drink of the evening is Bak’s Bison Grass Vodka (aka Żubrówka), a new experience that I (NPC) quite enjoyed – this may even become my new go-to for vodka drinking! In our Bike Talk segment we check in on Xander’s daily frosty commute, and then tell stories of Chervona’s bike-religious drummer. In our Game Talk segment, we kinda forget about games and just tell cat stories. In our Bar Talk segment, we talk about how to survive those holiday parties that you really don’t want to be at. We close out with more discussion of Chervona, and some details of awesome events that are coming up soon!
It’s the long awaited “Whiskey with Matt Buckley” bonus episode! Back in September, NPC, Poppy, Dr. Gerrymander, and Just Jacob sat down at 4K Ranch for a special curated tour of Matt’s stunning Irish Whiskey collection (after a fun day of eating, exploring, and shooting). Matt is one of the co-founders of the amazing Wagoncon gaming convention here in the Columbia Gorge, and as part of this episode we dig a bit deeper into the roots of the con, and what lies in its future. Matt then educates the crew about the wonders and history of The Water of Life, all the while plying them with a series of incredible distilled spirits. We hear how someone with a severe allergy to alcohol ends up having a collection of the finest product of Ireland.
