Splatbook 170 - Various and Sundry XIV

We pull out another random set for this episode! Join DMs Glen, Fulongamer and Brian as they pour you another frosty mug of 2e goodness! After answering an email, the fellas open up the taps. First they talk about the effects that can come up in melee combat, look it the rather scary werespider, and wrap things up with a rather spirited Brainstorm.

Email from DM Saxious (massive amounts of praise)

Splatbook 169 - Emails and Voicemails

We’re emptying out the mailbox once again! Join DMs Fulongamer, Brian, and Glen as they answer your emails and voicemails! We apologize for Fulon’s voice, he was driving through upstate New York at the time and his reception floated in and out, which is why he sounded fine at times and sounded terrible at others. Shoutout to DM Keith for doing the best that he could editing this show.

Save For Half Sideshow # 37 1/2: "Retrospective 2021"

Don't worry, this isn't like those old TV shows where you get a "new" episode and it's just the cast reminiscing and replaying clips from the previous year to fill out a show. This is all new, off the cuff attempts by your Halflings to remember what they've done in the past year! DM Mike remembers some work he did for an RPG, and that he got paid for it. DM Jim remembers SciBar; because DM Liz and I got everyone to call the 'zine that now! DM Corbett asks himself why he's stuck with all these old coots! All this and more await you, so get to listening while waiting for Santa to bring you that wood-grain box set of OD&D!

No manuscripts were harmed in the making of this podcast, except the ones that had only 1 space after a period.

Save For Half episode # 37: "Star Frontiers by TSR"

It's not a Trek, nor Wars...it's TSR's 1982 Sci-Fi game Star Frontiers! Your Halflings delve into this box set of space opera goodies with enough counters to warm any wargamer's (or DM Mike's) heart. Laser pistols, bizarre creatures, and Sonic Devastators (TM) abound in this episode of Save For Half!

Save For Half episode # 36: "Meddling Kids by Pandahead Productions"
(Sorry, thought this was posted earlier)

Jinkies! It's time to pile into the van with your fave talking creature and go solve groovy mysteries with your cool clique of friends in this RPG that pays homage to various cartoons of the 60s, 70s and 80s. The Halflings gather their Spooky Snacks(TM) and prepare to trap monsters, ghosts and pirates in an RPG that just might not take itself entirely seriously. The hosts review the game, reminisce about that ancient bit of ephemera called the Saturday Morning Cartoon, and generally fight over who gets to be the talking dog. Or monkey. Or shark. Or pirate. Or alien.

No Pirate Monkeys were harmed in the making of this podcast, not even by Old Man Potts!

Episode 166 – You Move Like Pregnant Yak!

We have been training hard for this episode! Join DMs Glen, Brian and Fulongamer as they bring you yet another helping of 2e goodness! After reading an email or two, they get to dishing it out. Firstly, they continue the Mordenkainen series of spells, then break down another lycanthrope, and bring it on home with a brainstorm about a martial arts dojo.

Save For Half episode # 35: "Blakes 7 RPG by Horizon"

It's time to review an RPG on one of our favorite BBC Sci-Fi TV shows of the 1970s; Blakes7 by Terry Nation. A show gritty and dark for its time, it was notorious for anti-heroes, rebels losing to the evil empir...er..."Federation", and bad SF/X. Does the game compare to the show? And what's up with the build-your-own props info? Will this be the Halfling's first LARP? Click play and find out!

No Rebels were harmed in the making of this podcast, except maybe Roj Blake...

What's this? Your Fab Four Halflings are covering that venerable book of 1st edition RPG goodness? That's right, this episode we dive into the foundational rules of that newfangled (for 1978) Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. What did we like? Hate? Actually use in our games? Tune in to find out...with maybe a controversy or two as a side-dish!
