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!

General Discussion / Prophets of White Dwarf?
« on: June 15, 2019, 12:29:39 PM »
The following is from the early 1981 issue of White Dwarf (#23).

Climbing out from underastack
of rulebooks, charts, tables,
scenarios, play-aids, dice and
figures led me to ponder the role
playing games of the future. How
long before role-playing game scenarios
are fed into home computers
with a visual display capable of
holographic effects?

Imagine, each of the players with a
hand controller watching their characters
walking down a dark corridor.
Around a bend and a party of vicious
goblins in glorious 3-D colour appear
on the screen. There would be no
arguments about who is standing
where or choice of opponent as the
computer urges its goblins with axes
swinging at the heads of your characters.
Players would be screaming
at each other, with sweat dripping
off their worried foreheads as fingers
dart over the hand controllers to
save their characters' lives.

We have the games, we will soon
have the technology, let's hope we
are around to have the chance. (White Dwarf #23, Feb/Mar 1981)

...sound familiar? Ok we dont' have 3D yet, but...?

We are joined by a fifth guest host, DM Gary, who is not only well versed in the game but is the 007 RPG Gamemaster for DMs Mike and Liz’s ongoing "View to a Kill" adventure. Car and snowmobile chases, Ease Ratings, and Five point (or is that Six?) Seductions are all here for your listening enjoyment!

Save For Half episode # 15: "Avremier by Mothshade Concepts"

Welcome to the Halfling Hideaway of Save for Half! This show we’re looking at a modern set of supplements for the campaign world of Avremier by David A. Hill. It’s made to be run with the Original D&D rules (1974), but is flexible enough to run with most any A/D&D rules set. It’s a big project (Core setting book and 4 supplements) but luckily for us our good friend DM Jim from Frog God Games has joined us to complete this review! We look at the setting, new monsters and magic items, and ask the eternal question...what does this have to do with Patrick Swayze?

No Flutterpotami were harmed in the making of this episode, though we tried!

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!
