42 – The Witch is Dead

Once upon a time in a sleepy little gnome village, there lived a kind a wonderful witch and her dear fox familiar. They lived very happily until one day, a witch hunter came and MURDERED THE GOOD WITCH. This is the quest of her familiar to rip out his eyes to bring her back to life….or at least wreak horrible vengeance.

Our deep apologies to the gnomes of gnomestew.com.

39 – Royal Blood: The Chariot

Our players infiltrate Space X — can they claim the chariot without inverting? And who is really in control of this plan?

This episode is the conclusion to our Royal Blood run, and also includes the most major safety fail I’ve ever had at my table. In light of this, we edited the game together, but also included both some of the table chatter and an interview at the end to clarify what happened, how we failed to take appropriate action, and how we can be better in the future. Learn from our mistakes. Don’t worry — we’re all still friends.

36 – Call of Catthulhu: The Pond

Three very cat like cats are sucked from pursuing the continuance of the great idea (make humans make the world as comfortable as possible) to defending their area and possibly the world against the invasion of the ancient insect god. The strange buzzy wings appear to be coming from the Library. But how do you get in to a locked room when you have no opposable thumbs?

We’re joined this week by John Arcadian, Gnome in Chief at Gnome Stew and Wendy of Gamer’s Giving to break out our inner cats.
