Jenkies! ItÕs time for another groovy episode of Save for Half! This time the Fab Four are joined by Jon Peterson, author of the book Playing at the World and all around fun guy from Yuggoth to discuss the RPG scene of the 1970s, a time where our hobby first got its roots set into the hearts and minds of millions. Fun, games, and fanzines are discussed, so take a listen on your 8-track, vinyl, or cassette!

No K-Tel records were harmed in the making of this podcast, not even for $19.99 + shipping and handling.

Save For Half episode # 16: "Monsters, Monsters! by Flying Buffalo, Inc."

Welcome to the mash...the Monster Mash? Your trio of Halflings (with a surprise 4th joining the cast) delve into an unusual little RPG of the mid-1970s called Monsters! Monsters! by Ken St. Andre. The author of Tunnels & Trolls decided to give the enemies of heroic parties their own side of the game, and we give you the goods....and the bads, and the uglies!

No Crones were harmed in the making of this podcast, not even the young ones!

See details at the following link:

Drakar is to be a single-issue OS homage to Dragon mag and they're looking for article subs from the OSR community.

Just FYI,

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!

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!

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!

Save For Half Sideshow # 12 1/2: "NTXRPG Con wrapup...with Satan!"

Halflings are here again to half the halflings available only to the other "half"! Which means a chat with Satan himself! Well, it’s Mike "BadMike" Badolato; co-owner, marketing hub, and general whipping boy for the North Texas RPG Convention.

We know it’s late....but we brought you Satan to make up for the delay! That’s gotta count for something.

No innocent people were harmed in the making of this show, because Leftenant Victory(TM) arrived to save everyone!

Save For Half episode # 12: "Boot Hill by TSR"

Saddle up y'all, and go for yer guns! The Halflings rustle up a passle of Western catch-phrases for this episode of the podcast! We're covering Boot Hill (1st and 2nd editions) and talk about weapons, maps, guns and a surprising lack of "Men with No Name"(TM)

No outlaws were harmed in the making of this podcast, except when Liz shot Mike....but she didn't shoot the deputy!

Victorious / Clockwork Mondays, Week 1
« on: September 03, 2018, 04:45:24 PM »
I've started a new series on the victoriousrpg.com site, giving backgrounds and Victorious stats for various characters that were featured in vols. 1 and 2 of the "Capes and Clockwork" anthologies. Give 'em a look and maybe use them in your home chronicles. Heck, if you like them maybe pick up a copy of Capes & Clockwork and read the stories!

Save For Half Sideshow # 11 1/2: "Son of Blueholme!"


Once again the Save for Halflings dig through the emails in the Halfling Hideaway and answer questions from the listeners…some of them even true! After a break we travel through time and space to sit down with the Blueholme man himself, Michael “Vile Traveller” Thomas. We discuss his RPG, gaming in general, and accents. Lots of accents.

No Time Lords were harmed in the making of this podcast, not even the British ones.

Victorious / Victorious reviewed by Ol' Man Grognard
« on: July 13, 2018, 08:14:00 PM »
Greetings!

The Ol' Man Grognard himself (Glen H.) was kind enough to review the Victorious RPG hardback over at his YouTube channel. Give it a gander, along with his voluminous number of other reviews (82+!). They're relatively short (10-15 minutes each) but he gets right into the topic at hand. Which Liz and I over at Save for Half have trouble doing ourselves! ??

Check Ol' Man Grognard at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEbkV-jWBko

Leave a review too!
 Mike
