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 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.

Splatbook 36 - Player's Option: Combat and Tactics

Join DMs Glen, Cory and Fulongamer as they talk about one of the more useful and polarizing Player's Option splatbooks, Combat and Tactics. After a bout of emails, they get down to brass tacks. After discussing the C&T supplement as a whole they move on to the weapon specialization rules, discuss the optional battlefield rules, debate about the merits of using static combat initiative numbers from 3e vs. changing combat initiative numbers in 2e, and put a nice bow on the show with a discussion about the stick-like blunt weapons (staves, clubs, etc.)

First, they discuss armors made of unusual metals as described in the DMG, then they talk about a 1st level fighter's best friend (because he can't afford platemail), splint and banded mail armors. Then they go on a Snipe Hunt (but not on their home terrain) for the Lizard Man and their ruler, the Lizard King. Finally, they get into the adventure module, Baba Yaga's Hut, and all of the mysteries contained therein.

Hope you're hungry, because we have a veritable smorgasbord of 2e goodness! Join DMs Glen, Cory, Fulongamer and Brian at the table as they devour course after course.

First, they talk about how PCs should handle navigating and surviving underground, they immediately segue into player personalities and how to deal with them as a DM, then shift topic to the subject of time passing in the campaign. From there, they discuss one of the most sought-after 1st level wizard spells, Magic Missile, then finally they turn to one of the most common foes in the D&D multiverse, the Orc just as Fulongamer tags in for his commentary on the subject, and we set a new record for people on the podcast at once!

I am trying to edit faster, but having two hours free and clear to edit and post is not easy to come by.

*sighs* Yeah, I know. Between all of the work I do and running around after a 4-year-old, having time to edit the podcasts in a timely manner went out the window. But there is good news: Glen has agreed to take back editing duties, so episodes will start coming out much more quickly. We have 144 out right now, with 145 and 146 coming VERY soon. We have recorded up to 149 as of this moment today, so there are still more coming. Stay tuned.

Believe me, if we had decided to hang it up we would have let everyone know. Keep the faith.
