The Inn Between: Questlandia

Sad times, friends: we’ve reached the end of Questlandia Month! We let Matt and CJ out of their restraints for one more episode so we could review this lovely game provide an in-depth list of our favorite celebrity moustaches. Which of those did we put more effort into? You be the judge! Thanks for listening […]

Questlandia: Part Two

No, your eyes don’t deceive you – this is a nearly two-hour episode! I think this is the longest episode we’ve ever put out, and boy howdy is it a strange and wonderful one. Returning guests CJ and Matt join Rich and Nate for the exciting conclusion to our Questlandia actual play set in the […]

Questlandia: Part One

After interviewing Hannah Shaffer, we knew we had to play Turtlebun’s Questlandia (https://turtlebun.itch.io/questlandia). This episode has everything you need, provided what you need is a town built around drinking bug pee, social upheaval, questionable casting choices, and not a small amount of IMDB trivia. This first episode has all our world building and character creation, […]

Hearthside Chat with Hannah Shaffer of Turtlebun

Well…technically, Hearthside Chats, if I’m being honest. It took so long since Hannah (@hanbandit) and I had our first interview that I had to ask her to come back on the show for an update! Make sure you check out Hannah and her design partner Evan Rowland’s (@adrawnnovel) wonderfully weird games over on their website, […]

Corner Office: Part Two

Hello, Actioneers! It has recently come to management’s attention that many of you are using this podcast as a means of distracting yourself from the doldrums of the day. This is unacceptable. Doldrums and depression suffered by our employees are not to be remedied by entertainment. They are to be suffered through in stoic silence […]

Corner Office: Part One

Good morning, you productive little worker bees! This is Nate from HR and I just want to thank you for your hard work and dedication in these troubling and challenging times. Though the apocalypse may be raging outside, inside the walls of Company Co. Headquarters, our only concerns should be promoting a synergy-focused work environment […]

One Shot: This Game Takes Place in Your Home Town

Richard and I haven’t had the chance to hang out face-to-face recently, what with the move and all. We thought we’d remedy that with a good ol’ fashion Jenga-based TTRPG! Last time, we played the excellent Wickies and made it all the way to the end of the game without dying somehow. Can we push […]

The Inn Between: Kids on Bikes

Hello! Cory and Melanie came back on to discuss all things Kids on Bikes. We got deep into the genre and talked about crafting a game on the fly vs giving the DM greater creative control in the planning process. We also spent a long time discussing David Lynch. Like…a long time. And stay through […]

Kids on Bikes: A-MAIZE-ing Adventures Part Two

Richard is the greatest and best friend, cohost, and editor a podcast could hope for. Melanie and Cory? Their love is like a beacon and their creativity shines with equal brightness? And Nate? Nate’s okay. Thanks for joining us for the conclusion of our Kids on Bikes episode! All considering, I think it came out […]
