Past Shows and Splatbook Updates
« on: February 22, 2016, 08:00:18 PM »
Okay, this is going to take some time, as there are now 118 shows to c&p, but I am going to place all show descriptions in this thread, rather than create separate threads like I did before. Hopefully I can get this done by the end of next week.

Episode 2 – Enter DM BadMike….
In this episode, DM BadMike joins the Wild Games family as a co-host on Thaco’s Hammer and he tells a little about himself. From there they discuss the Complete Book of Elves, and elves as a race. Then they talk about spell components, the plan B DMs sometimes are forced to go to, and the spells Blast Bones and Crushing Walls. Then the guys go on a Snipe Hunt for Otyughs (the unofficial monster mascot of the show), and wrap up with the adventure in Dungeon Magazine #37, White Boar of Kilfay.

Episode 7 – Birthright!
Our first show dedicated entirely to an AD&D 2E campaign world, is up. In it DM Glen and DM Brian are joined by DM Chrispy (from Save or Die), an expert on all things Birthright. We talk about the campaign world, “blooded” characters, priests in the campaign world, the monster the Awnsheighlin (which, by the time the discussion is over DM Glen manages to pronounce right) and finally a talk about DMing Birthright. A fun time had by all.

Episode 9 – Campestri!
The words “raucous” and “ribald” come to mind in this extra-long episode, but that’s what you get when the Core Gang (DMs Glen, Cory and Brian) invite DM Julie in for her always interesting (and somewhat loony) takes on all things 2E. In this go-round we have some interesting emails, Go over the Blade kit from last episode’s Complete Bard’s Handbook, Talk about eating (and Cory’s specialty, drinking) at conventions, aim our discussions at crossbows and review and adventure from Dungeon #41 (in which we figure out that singing mushrooms might not be all that bad).
It’s definitely PG this week so you are warned. Still, it’s a lot of fun! Give it a listen.

Episode 11 – Ninjas!
This week DMs Glen, Brian and Julie give a boot to the head to Martial Arts in 2E, wondering where the monk is, talking up The Complete Ninjas Handbook and discussing some re-working of the monk and a martial artist class that Brian came up with (and is willing to share with our audience). Good stuff!

Episode 12 – Ogre Magi!
Okay, this episode finds DMs Glen, Cory and Brian asking Where’s My Assassin, debating the pros and cons of Sandbox vs. Adventure Path-type play, figuring out how to build Custom Magic Items, taking a good long (but not too close) look at the Ogre Magi and thumb through Aurora’s Whole Realms Catalog.

Episode 13 – Maedars!
This week, DMs Glen, Brian and Cory gird their loins for a discussion of The Arms and Equipment Guide, shed some light on Vision and Light Underground, get lost in a discussion about MegaDungeons and ponder about how to use the Maedar, the distaff version of the Medusa. Time to hammer away again!

Episode 14 – Minotaurs!
In this episode DMs Glen, Cory and Brian discuss running a game with a small number of PCs, the ideas of monsters as PCs, which immediately segues into a review of The Complete Book of Humanoids, then we go into the Minotaur from that book to be specific, discuss the issue of drinking and recreational drugs at the gaming table, and we wrap it all up by discussing the spells Whirling Blade and Whip of Shar.
This is also a PG show, so consider yourself warned.
