Wide-ranging tabletop role-playing discussion, a variety of guests, and occasional actual-play content. All done with a casual, conversational vibe.
Everything from tips for playing and GMing, to rule system discussions, with plenty of whatever happens to cross our minds along the way!
Are we ”experts”? No!
Do we really love ttRPGs? HECK YEAH!!!
To that end, we‘re just looking to start conversations to help folks better understand how they can have more fun playing make-believe, and chucking dice!

97: Getting Meta

We've all heard the term "meta-gaming" used, and usually with bad connotations, but what is it?  And is it always bad?  This week we Steves ponder this very thing!

This week the Steves have a little chat about what it is that drives us to purchase games, and more games, and...     Nothing too heavy, but we made ourselves think a little bit.

69: Curveballs w/ Dustin from The Staggering Dragon

This week we're chatting with Dustin from The Staggering Dragon podcast about those curveballs that get thrown around the gaming table.  Given that his table seems to trade fairly heavily in them, it seemed like a good topic to get his insight on.   Plus it was just a really fun gaming-centric conversation, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

62: IP Based Games w/ GM Hooly

This week we welcome back our Aussie friend GM Hooly (of The Forge podcast) to have a talk that was suppose to be about playing and running IP based RPGs.  We actually did talk a bit about that, but in true Me and Steve fashion, we diverge all over the place, but still stay (sorta) on-topic-ish.

  We chat a bit about some of the famous properties that have been made into games, some of which have worked very well, and others that have not.

For everyone's benefit, the Wiki article we mention during the show is this one https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tabletop_role-playing_games

It's far from comprehensive, but it's still a rather interesting list!

 

As for GM Hooly, you can find him via https://forgegenesys.com/

60: Game System Design w/ Jay Little

This week we're getting under the hood, and looking a little bit at the "nuts & bolts" of games.  And to assist in this we're joined by Jay Little, who was the system designer for (among other things) Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 3rd Ed, FFG Star Wars/Genesys, and also, the 2d20 system for Modiphious, as well as X-Wing miniatures 1ed, and numerous other games.

     As always, it's a bit of a rambling discussion, but I hope you all have as much fun listening in, as we did recording!
