Today we’re joined by GM Onsilius to talk to him about his amazing Pathfinder campaign that’s been going on for over a decade! Onsilius himself has over 25 years of GM’ing experience and is quite a hoot to interview. Sit down and enjoy yet another great campaign, a great way to capstone 2014!
Tonight we’re hoping you all had a great turkey day, we’re well rested and ready to chat about some serious RPG stuff. Come join us!
[Note: There were some audio anomalies on Micah’s end with this episode. During recording I thought this was just distortion on the call we were on, as that is common on skype/G+, however it turns out that it wasn’t and I did my best to scrub the audio but there are still some rough spots. -Jerry]
Today I’m here talking to GM Pebbles and his co-GM Jennifer about their Shadowrun game The Rat’s Nest. It’s a sprawling, gritty concrete jungle and we’re going to learn all about the game, and the extremely fun and interesting folks behind it. Grab a seat, maybe a snack, and settle in for a long and satisfying interview!
Tonight, we’re joined by Brian Patterson and Tracy Barnett of the newly formed Exploding Rogue Studios! Tune in as we talk about Karthun, and lots more. Be sure to hit up their website for all the details on stalking them online!
Also, don’t forget that our friends over at Roll20 are hiring. Beyond that, let’s get on with the show!
- Vanguard wrap up, huge thanks to all who participated and congrats to Wolfhound on winning the huge prize pack. Bits and pieces will be on their way soon!
- New Backgrounds are up, more soon!
- Having just recovered from con crud, we will be judging the Summer of Flames contest soon.
It’s August and Gencon is just around the corner, the temperatures are rising and so is everyone’s anticipation for the next edition of D&D. We’ve been covering a lot of news regarding 5e on the Haste Podcast and Jerry has been talking about it a lot on his blog.
Obviously, we’re pretty excited ourselves and so we’d like to give everyone a chance at winning some awesome 5e schwag, whether you’re going to gencon or not this year! What better goodies to give away than some 5e D&D Starter Sets, and maybe even a Player’s Handbook! The contest is simple, but you’ve only got until the end of Gencon to enter, here’s how:
In one line: Tell us the best way to beat the heat! Whether you’re avoiding fireballs, surviving a red dragon’s breath, or simply not shriveling up under the Dark Sun.
“I cast any remaining ice spells inside my house before I go to sleep and re-memorize everything, just so I have some A/C while I sleep”
“Huddle behind my my shield and hope all this ‘dwarven craftsmanship’ pays off when the dragon starts spewing fire”
“Stow my canteen of water in the last place anyone would look – inside the severed orc head that dangles from my belt.”
How to enter:
- In one sentence or less, and in a D&D (or at least “fantasy”) themed response, tell us how you or your character is beating the heat this summer. Get creative!
- Submit it as a comment below, no more than 3 entries per person, one entry per comment
On August 17th, at midnight, the contest will close. Afterward, 4 winners will be randomly chosen to win a D&D 5e Starter Set, and one additional hand-picked winner of our choice will receive a d20Monkey “Whining is Coming” T-shirt along with a D&D 5e Player’s Handbook, and a Starter Set as well.
Note: Contest winners limited to US/Canada only due to shipping expenses, if you are overseas you are still welcome to enter, upon winning we can offer a year of free Ascendant subscription time.
