Rank #1: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay - History

Podcast cover
Read more

Today we're talking a long, nostalgic look back at Games Workshop's flagship roleplaying game - Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay.  Set in their self-styled "grim world of perilous adventure" this game promised to be very different from what had come before.

In this episode we take a look at the game's long and checkered history.  The next part will feature a review of the setting and the system, and the final one will see us sitting down to have a good old chinwag about our favourite memories of the game.

Rank #3: Vampire: The Masquerade - Roundtable

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode we take a look at White Wolf's Vampire: the Masquerade; a groundbreaking game that put the emphasis on stroytelling and social interaction rather than combat.  Oh, and did I mention that the players took on the roles of the monsters?  This is our roundtable discussion where we don our rose tinted glasses and wax lyrical about what we loved about this epic game.

This is part two of our Vampire episode - part one is all about the history of the game and its development.

Rank #6: Dungeons and Dragons - Roundtable

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode we don our rose-tinted glasses and have a long, nostalgic chat about the game that started it all, Dungeons and Dragons.  It's been around for almost HALF A CENTURY and, throughout its rather turbulent history, it has influenced the tabletop RPG genre more than any other game. 

As a special guest, we have World Famous Games' Designer (TM) Corey Young who talks about his experiences with the game and why 5e D&D is an elegant piece of games design.

This is part two of our D&D episode - part one features a history of the game and the trials and tribulations it faced throughout the years.

Rank #7: Dungeons and Dragons - Goblins With Gree

Podcast cover
Read more

Yes, we're back for another episode of "Goblins of Gree", the feature that will see each of my kids being given one of the creatures from the game we've just discussed, for which they will make a case for that creature being "Goblin of the Week".  We'll then put up a Twitter poll to let the public decide.

The Twitter poll can be found @savepodcast

Andrew's desperate for votes this time, as the current score is:

Gree: 1
Andrew: 0

Yes - it's complete nonsense, and thankfully brief.  Enjoy!

So, my children have decided that they want to get involved with the podcast...  The result is this - Goblins With Gree (got to love the alliteration).  This (semi-regular) feature will see each of my kids being given one of the creatures from the game we've just discussed, and they will make their case for that creature being "Goblin of the Week".  We'll then put up a Twitter poll to let the public decide.

Yes - it's complete nonsense, and thankfully brief.  Enjoy!
