Agreed, I let my wife Liz do the FB thing but I avoid as much as possible. I never got twitter; my life just isn't that interesting and I refuse to post about what sandwich I had for lunch or other exciting activities. :P

While I know forums are on their way out I will stick with them until the very end! ;)

Save For Half episode # 14: "Privateers & Gentlemen by FGU"

Ahoy there, ye landlubbers! It’s the Halfling crew of the SS SFH here to cut yer jib and keel yer haul...with the role playing game "Privateers & Gentlemen"! Published in 1982, this box set from Fantasy Games Unlimited has sailing ships, mutinous crews, rotten boroughs....but surprisingly few pirates? We delve into the books with the assistance of (brevet) DM Mark from the Tabletop Radio Hour podcast. He's knowledgeable, informative, and most importantly has read the Heart of Oak miniatures rules the ship combat is based on in the RPG!

No cabin boys were harmed in the making of this podcast, not even with belaying pins!

You're right, Mike. I don't see a download button. I will send Jay an email. Maybe he can add one. It's very good. I'm glad he is back.
Speaking of nostalgia, I'm re-listening to SOD. Ah...the good old days. 😉
LOL Liz is still embarrassed about ep 1-6 or so. I wince at the mid-50s, when I took over as lead host.

What can I say...we got better? :D

Second Edition AD&D / Re: 2e Bard: What is your experience with this class?
« on: November 27, 2018, 12:47:57 PM »
Pretty much as you state. The 2E Bard is weak and if BTB their abilities are second rate to Thieves...sorry, "Rogues". :P

One thing I do like about the 5E game is how they handled Bards. My wife Liz ran one for a while and just loved their "Vicious Mockery" ability. :lol:

Just wanted to let folks know that Jay (formerly of The Delvers podcast) has created another pod called Nostalgia Vomit. Jay is doing his magic with recording his play of game books (like Fighting Fantasy). If you liked The Delvers, I think you'll enjoy his new creation: http://www.nostalgiavomit.com
Wait, is this burned f/x?

Also, I can't find either a download button or rss feed. Pity, I hate listening to podcasts on my computer or kindle. :P

Save For Half episode # 13: "Call of Cthulhu by Chaosium"

Happy Halloween, Halfsies! The Halflings are back to celebrate the holiday with the granddaddy of all horror RPGS, Call of Cthulhu! We open the first edition box and look over the rules, the extras, and most importantly of all the insanities? Death, carnage, madness and flying head butts await you dear listener—in the Internet's greatest podcast brought to you by a guy from Wyoming and a couple of weirdos from Denton (the Home of Happiness!)

This podcast was brought to you by the number 2 and the letters IA!

Victorious / Re: Victorious on Game School podcast
« on: October 29, 2018, 06:08:38 PM »
Indeed, from the moment we start the hero and heroine are battling traps, tricks, and clockwork armours to escape the trap of Prof. Moriarty!

(Seriously, I think it was at least 20 minutes)

Alas Sgtslag, I wish I was wrong. Wen DF started in 2002 to about 2005 or so it was a great place. It got worse with the 1E TFanatics so much that I found it stifling. I still visit the Classic D&D forum over there, but avoid most of the others to get away from that sort of rigid doctrine. BITD, we didn't play BTB in any shade or manner....so I refuse to see why I have to do it differently today. :)

LOL... I know its kinda repetitive, but years of being on dragonsfoot and hearing "XYZ says its this way so you MUST ONLY play it that way..." has scarred me forever. I know most Genteel Magistrates know its a given, but like I reiterated on Game School 206 I really believe its your game. I just wrote some ideas down that I like... :D

"Temporal" was an attempt to use as much Victorian verbage without going overboard and boring everyone to death. For instance, I'd toyed with having Martial Arts as "Baritsu", but finally decided clarity was better than obscure yet faithful terms. In fact, to be truly accurate it should be "Temporal" and "Spiritual" but I went with "Mystical" instead to avoid the issues loaded with the Spiritual concepts.

I like the idea of the Leprechaun, so long as you don't make it like those awful 80s-90s movies!

Damn shame...I never played Runequest, but I played a lot of Call of Cthulhu back in the day and always wanted to chat and/or game with him.

Here's hoping he's dicing with Gary and the others in that great gaming room in the sky...!

Greetings, all you Foes of Villany!

      Your humble Genteel magistrate was on the Game School podcast describing the Victorious RPG and running the hosts Jay-Cee and Spence through a quick game to show them the system.

« on: October 15, 2018, 12:48:33 PM »
Hey all,

This week’s Clockwork Monday is a little different, as homage to the season. And what’s more Halloween than a skull-based villain? Nothing!

Enjoy!
