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!

« 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!

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!

Save For Half episode # 11: "No home like Blueholme”

Now that we've given our views on the Holmes Basic D&D game, your Triumphant Trio give the Blueholme Journeymanne RPG a gander. This retro-clone of the Holmes game moves beyond the Prentice rules with levels 1-3 and instead carries characters from levels 1 to 20, from beginner to the heights of power and prestige. Thrills, chills, and 3d6 in order await you in this latest show!

No Alignments were harmed in the making of this show, except by DM Mike!

General Discussion / Writing Adventures
« on: May 27, 2018, 06:04:04 PM »

From Venger Satanis: ‘The adventure designer inspires the GM with awesome ideas.  The GM takes those ideas, interprets them based on his own desires, adds in what seems appropriate at the time, and presents his version... his vision to the players.  The players respond as if they actually were the characters themselves.  The GM reacts to PC actions (or inaction).’

That's it.  That's what's supposed to happen.  Interrupting that sacred pattern with failed novelist backstory, tedious read-aloud text, and predetermined outcomes is ruining D&D!!!”

He's talking about D&D, but IMO it covers most FRPGs.

Discuss. ;)

Victorious / [NTXRPGCon] Victorious in Open Gaming
« on: May 17, 2018, 11:40:20 AM »

***Due to "real life" issues, I did not schedule this event in time for the NTXRPGCon Event website. However, I am still running this game on Saturday, June 9th, at the con!

VICTORIOUS RPG - "The Sky Pirates"

The year is 1889. Parliament is preparing to open for the new year. In attendance will be Queen Victoria herself to address the members of Parliament. Normally, this would be an uneventful situation, but nothing is normal since the arrival of the Super-Mankind!

With ominous threats to Her Majesty's life, the military has been called out. Even the newly created military airship division has been sighted patrolling all of London. Surely, the Super-Mankind group, The Queen's Knights, won't be needed to ensure the peace...or will they?

No. of Players: 3-6
Pre-Generated Characters
No prior experience with VICTORIOUS required to play.
Session: 4 hours max
Will start around 1pm-5pm
OPEN GAMING area.

(Time subject to change)

Save For Half Sideshow # 10 1/2: ÒSon of HolmesÓ

It's email time in the Halflings' Hideaway, and after responding to some listener feedback we have a discussion with Chris Holmes! For those not in the know, Chris is the son of J. Eric Holmes, the author of Holmes Basic Dungeons & Dragons! We talk characters, his Tales of Peril project, purple worms, and...Herculoids?

No Tom Hanks were harmed in the making of this episode, not even Pardue the Holy man!

Save For Half Podcast # 10: Basic Dungeons & Dragons - Holmes

Its the grandaddy of Basic D&D, the blue book edited by Dr. J. Eric Holmes! This little gem from the late 1970s brings us the question of trying to sell RPGs in mass market stores. It also begs other questions, such as how many ogres you need to mug to level up, why unicorns blow, and what vampires are doing in a game that limits players characters to levels 1-3? All this and more will be answered on this episode of Save for Half!

No ogres were harmed in the making of this episode, not even the ones with 500 gold pieces in their bags.
