CHUM 38 – Battlebards

A few days ago, I once again had the pleasure to chat with Alex of Battlebards fame about, you guessed it: Battlebards! In this episode, Alex tells me that Battlebards is going live with its public beta on February 1st, 2016 and I could not be more excited. They provided me with some preview audio and allowed me to use it in this episode, so if you’ve wondered what you’ll get from Battlebards, look no further. Enjoy!

CHUM 37 – Planning Better Scenes

Awhile ago, I started using a different method for planning the scenes in my game sessions. That method has worked out really well for me so I decided to share it and some quick thoughts. This is the result. This episode is much shorter than our normal episodes, coming in at just under five minutes. I hope you find the thoughts useful.

CHUM 36 – Shadow of the Demon Lord

Boy, do we have a treat for you! This past weekend, Christopher had the opportunity to chat with Robert Schwalb, the designer of Shadow of the Demon Lord. I wasn’t able to join them due to scheduling issues, but Christopher asked some great questions. There’s lots of stuff coming for the game in the future and it’s exciting!

Pod Chatter Episode 11 – Licensed IPs

Welcome to the new year! Christopher and I had a blast recording this episode live via Google Hangouts. What? You didn’t know we recorded Pod Chatters live? Well, we certainly do, and we want you to join us on the next one! The planned date is 1/28/16 at 8pm PT. That’ll firm up as we get closer.

The sound quality is not as good as normal only because I had to edit this the very night we recorded it in order to have it out on schedule. Darn holidays. Enjoy!

Sandbox Episode 22 – Underworld

This episode is a few hours late and for that I apologize. I blame Christmas! Seriously, I didn’t manage my time very efficiently this week and because of that didn’t start editing this episode until this morning. But! It’s done and in your hot hands, now, and I hope you enjoy it.

In this episode, we’re joined by Caleb from The RPG Academy. We start Phase II of the Sandbox podcast, shaking things up a bit. No longer are we creating Locations and Faces for the Sandbox districts. We are now creating Holidays and Landmarks. I think it went very well this episode.
