Save For Half Sideshow #26 1/2: North Texas RPG Con with Chris Holmes

Yes there was in fact a North Texas RPG Con this year; both virtual and live tracks. Your Halflings read some emails and then discuss their time at the con. Chris Holmes, son of J. Eric Holmes, was the only one of us actually in person at the convention, and so he tells the "live" part of the convention activities. Who ran what? Who attended what? And we answer the most important question of all; who killed Colonel Mustard?

No Joshua Trees were harmed in the making of this show, not even the walking ones!

Save for Half Podcast / What you've all been....waiting for?
« on: August 01, 2020, 08:44:36 PM »
As promised, patreon subscribers now have in their hot little inboxes a copy of my very own Timeship character from 1983. Was DM Mike at 14 just as awesome as his stats reflect? Be Honest!

TIMELORD!

Save For Half episode # 26: "Timeship by Yaquinto Publications"

Timeship has, let's say, a checkered reputation in the RPG community. This episode your intrepid Halflings delve into a game that mandates a player play themselves, travel back in time, and (among other things) kill Hitler. What's not to like? More than you'd think with a opening like that. Will DM Jim ever forgive DM Mike for choosing this game? Listen and find out!

No players were harmed in the making of this show, because they brought shotguns to the gaming table...with no energy penalty!

Save For Half episode # 25: "Awful Green Things from Outer Space by SJG"

What more can we say about episode 25 of Save for Half? Only they're awful, they're green...and they're from outer space! Yes, it's that quirky Tom Wham boardgame first published in Dragon magazine #28, and was in its 8th edition in a box set from Steve Jackson Games. Come join the Halflings aboard the Znuta as we fight aliens, no matter what side you're on!

Save For Half Sideshow # 24 1/2: "Alarums & Excursions with Jon Peterson"

Save for Half is back with another sideshow, this time featuring the return of the Arch-RPG Historian himself Jon Peterson! He joins the Halflings for a discussion of the seminal D&D fanzine Alarums & Excursions, and we discuss the first five issues of that APA; now available online as pdfs. Articles, filk songs, and recipes are discussed with varying degrees of efficacy on this somewhat tardy sideshow...

No D&Ds were harmed in the making of this sideshow, not even by Complete Warlocks!

Save For Half episode # 24: "Empire of the Petal Throne by TSR"

It's a legend in the RPG community, M.A.R. Barker's famous Tekumel is brought to you by the halfling horde's inimitable wit! Well, half of it anyway... The Empire of the Petal Throne is arguably the first D&D variant world to see publication, and it's got more detail than you can shake a dice bag at. The Halflings take a review of the world of the Petal Throne, its rules that vary from Dungeons & Dragons, and most importantly discuss...Dire Navigators!

Save For Half episode # 22: Aftermath! By FGU

ItÕs the Post-Apocalypse, and you are a lone survivor battling the radioactive wastes with a pistol, sneakers, and all the armor hit location #12 can hold! ThatÕs right, itÕs Aftermath by Fantasy Games Unlimited, and your Halflings delve into how the world ended in 1981! DM Jim failed his barter roll with the landshark, so we are joined this episode by DM Ben of the legendary realms of New York. Flowcharts, bicycles, and the relative weight of human heads abound in this episode of Save for Half!

No dogs were hit in the #12 in the making of this episodeÑbecause itÕs not there?

Save For Half episode # 19: “Bullwinkle & Rocky RP Party Game by TSR"

It’s party time here in the Halfling Hideaway, and what's more of a party than a Party RPG? It says so, right on the box! Yes, it’s the Bullwinkle and Rocky Roleplaying Party game, from 1988. You demanded it (sorta), so we're here to bring it to you!

Can Boris really 'Kill Moose'? Does Sherman and his boy face weeping angels in the time vortex? Can Dudley Do-Right face off against Frost Giants? Ok, only one of those is correct; but you'll have to listen to find out which one!

No mooses were killed in the making of this episode, not even ones with rabbits coming out of his hat!
