Episode 2: “Gamma World”

In our second outing* the Save for Half-lings (with guest-star DM Jim!) look at a seminal old school classic – 1st edition Gamma World. James M. Ward and Gary Jaquet’s over-the-top combination of super-science and deadly, earnest danger set the bar for early science fiction and post-apocalyptic role playing games, and its influence is still felt in gaming 38 years later. * Original Recording of this show was April 10, 2016 Links mentioned in this show: Gamma World Playtest rules 1977 found: https://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?778584-Could-someone-help-me-verify-if-a-find-is-real Grognard Files http://armchairadventurerblog.com/ Don’t forget to drop us an email at saveforhalfpodcast(at)gmail.com to give your opinions of the show!

Episode 10: Holmes Basic Dungeons & Dragons

It’s 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.

Episode 3.5: North Texas RPG Con

Welcome to the Save for Half “Sideshow”! These shows are produced erratically and oddly, much like a circus’ sideshow. They are for the bits and bobs we don’t feel fit into the format of the “whole number” shows, so be warned, it gets weird from here on out! In this sideshow we are joined by Mike “BadMike” Badolato, co-owner/runner/responsible adult/sucker of the North Texas RPG Convention, which is held every first Thursday Weekend of June. During this show we cover emails we’ve gotten over the first two episodes of Save For Half. Then we talk to BadMike about the convention; what’s new, what’s old, what’s what for the 2017 NTRPG Con and why YOU should be there!
