Sandbox Episode 13 – Outer Wastes

Let me begin by apologizing for the quality of William’s sound. I cleaned it up the best I could but it’s still not perfect. You can understand his contributions, which is why I didn’t scrap this whole episode. He made some really great contributions, too.

I think you’ll enjoy this episode. There are some great additions to the Shark Bone Podcast Sandbox world and a really great development for The Chief. Give it a listen. And remember to review the show on iTunes and Stitcher!

Mythoard Review

There’s something pretty fantastic going on that you may not have seen. It’s called Mythoard. Mythoard is an RPG subscription box and it’s very cool.

My first exposure to Mythoard was a couple months ago and I’m sorry that I’ve forgotten the exact circumstance. However, I began asking questions and they offered to send me a free Mythoard to review on the podcast. Hey! Free stuff! I accepted.

So far, I’ve received two Mythoards. They are both excellent. The first one simply came in a USPS bubble envelope. I was a little sad about the state of the documents in that first package. The two books both had bent spines and, while they are still functional as books, I had to look at them as a customer. As a customer, I was not happy about that. The content, however, was still really good.

The February Mythoard contained the adventure False Promises, a Beyond the Wall poster with included discount, a one page city map, the one page adventure A Simple Request, a book of three fantasy adventures Bizarre Tales, a bookmark with free download codes for Corporia, a small card for the character Tooluu and finally, three very cool dice.


The March Mythoard is by far my favorite of the two. It contained issue 5 of the Gygax magazine, The Dungeoneers Journal, a one page adventure named Guardian of the Springs, The Miller’s Blunder adventure book, two Dungeonmorph dice and three magnetic monster tokens. This Mythoard came packaged in cardboard inside the shipping envelope.


I am very impressed with the improvement in shipping from the first month to the next. After receiving the February box, I contacted them about the damage to the book spines. They shared my concerns and told me that they were looking into solutions for the issue. They nailed it with the March box.

Almost everything that I have received is for fantasy gaming, which is super awesome if that is your game. The Gygax magazine was sweet, containing the excellent article “Zen and the Art of Game Mastery”.

There is so much stuff here, so many ideas to play with and to serve as inspiration. All this only costs $25 per month in the U.S. Fantasy is one of my favorite genres for gaming and the materials received have me itching to start a fantasy game up soon. Mythoard is a fantastic idea and execution is wonderful. If fantasy is your jam, you owe it to yourself to give this a try for at least one month. I doubt you’ll be disappointed. I’ll be ordering another for myself very soon.

CHUM 29 – Show’s Future / Shadowcraft

You may have been expecting another episode of the Sandbox, but we’ve made some changes to the show. You’ll hear all about them in this CHUM episode. And, we talk about making CHUMs a part of the regular release schedule, but after recording this episode, I decided against that. CHUMs will still be the bonus, random, whenever they happen shows. I’ve created a show called Pod Chatter for the banter episodes. I’m sure they’ll be fun.

The second part of this episode is an interview with Christopher and JM about Shadowcraft: The Glamour War! It’s a fun discussion and the game sounds really cool. Check out the Kickstarter! All links are below.

Old Show Episode Archive

The original Shark Bone Podcast show format has been retired, but it still has its fans! This past week I was contacted by a listener who wanted to re-download all the episodes from the Old Show but didn’t want to go back and download them individually. As there are 201 episodes to download for the Old Show, I completely understand!

To make things a little easier, I’ve created a zip file containing all 201 episodes of the Old Show. You can download it from my Google Drive. It’s a large download, weighing in at close to 7 gigs, so it might take awhile.

Thanks for listening! Enjoy.

EDIT: I’ve been notified that I made a mistake at the very beginning of the episode! The RPG subscription site is, not MythBoard. Sorry.
