Pod Chatter Episode 9 – Character Hobbies

This episode is a couple days late and, for that, I apologize. My laptop died and I had to order a hard drive enclosure to get the data off of it to edit and release this episode.

In this episode, Christopher and I talk about hobbies, giving your characters hobbies, why you should do that and why it will make your characters more interesting and richer. Ok, well, maybe it won’t make your character richer in anything but details. I do hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it!

CHUM 35 – Noir World

In this episode, Christopher and I speak with John Adamus to chat about an Apocalypse World hack he’s working on, Noir World! If you have a love of the noir, you will be very excited for this game. If you don’t love noir, but love stories where the characters are hard-pressed to do the right thing or where alignment means nothing, you will be excited for this game. I’m excited for this game!

As a note, John’s and my audio isn’t the best quality, but the discussion was too good to scrap. Please enjoy!

Pod Chatter Episode 8 – Mind Control

It’s a wonderful day in the Shark Bone-hood, a wonderful day to be a Shark Boner! Won’t you listen to our newest episode?

Christopher and I discuss Mind Control and social interactions that remove some of the control a player has over their own character. There are some excellent ideas in here, I believe. Enjoy!

Sandbox Episode 19 – Crater Colony

It’s that time again Shark Boners! Time for another fantastic episode of the Shark Bone Podcast Sandbox. I must say, these are my favorite episodes of the current Shark Bone Podcast. There are so many wonderful ideas created during the shows! It makes me wish I had more time to run and play games.

In this episode, Kevin from the RPG Academy Network joins us to talk some cyberpunk goodness! Listen to us chat about human/AI blending, purist safaris and the Dread Doc Roberts. After you’ve enjoyed this episode, make sure to give us a review on iTunes and Stitcher.

Pod Chatter Episode 7 – Stargate!

It’s here! Finally, our long-awaited episode on Stargate is ready for your enjoyment. In this episode, Christopher and I talk about our favorite parts of the Stargate franchise. We touch on some ideas from the Stargate shows that we think could see more time in games and we finally talk about which game system we would use to run a Stargate game.

This episode was recorded live over Google+ Hangouts, so it might sound a bit different than a regular episode. I’m sure there’s still plenty to enjoy. Thanks for listening!

CHUM Episode 34 – Focal Point

For this episode, Christopher took the reigns and set up and ran an interview with two of the authors, Phil Vecchione and Walt Ciechanowski. They chat about what’s cool about Focal Point: The Complete Game Master’s Guide to Running Extraordinary Sessions, what parts they liked best and plenty of gaming stories! The book is available at their website, EnginePublishing.com and on DriveThruRPG.

Sandbox Episode 18 – The Pit

POSSIBLE TRIGGERS: Suicide, Sex Slave, Brainwashing

It’s time for another episode of the Shark Bone Podcast Sandbox! This episode takes place in The Pit, our modern fantasy/horror district and I think it’s a winner. This episode might be the best Sandbox episode we’ve done, yet!

In the “and… Action!” segment of this episode, Mike Treadmore, the leader of the 5th Street Block, gets a chance to work on his goal. Will he succeed? Listen and find out!

Next, Christopher and I add a couple new Locations to The Pit, an arcane academy and a religious cult compound. The details are way cool and inspiring.

You’ll noticed that I’ve added a warning up top for possible triggers. I want to be as considerate of our fans as I can be. I know that, at times, some touchy subjects are mentioned on the show so I want to make sure you are aware of any possible triggers before you listen. If you notice any possible triggers that I missed, let me know.

Sandbox Episode 17 – Orbital Platform Delta 4

I’m currently on vacation. I had hoped to get this episode edited and scheduled before I left, but that didn’t happen. I spent all the free time I had making sure this episode was well edited and I don’t have the time to get the full show notes written and linked. I’ll do it later. Thanks for understanding! Enjoy the episode.
