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!

103: Me and Steve LIVE! at the Pittsburgh Gaming Expo!

This week we bring you the recording of a panel that we were asked to do at the Pittsburgh Gaming Expo!

We talk about why as the GM, you should be the biggest fan of your players.
The audio isn't the greatest, but given we sorta forgot to prepare for actually recording live, we didn't think it sounded too bad for setting a cell phone on the table between us, in a room with a PA system, and close to 200 video and arcade games! 

So enjoy, and if you're able to do so, plan on joining us again there next year!

We would very much like to thank the staff and volunteers of the convention for putting on a wonderfully fun event!

 

Recorded at the Pittsburgh Gaming Expo in Monroeville PA (just outside Pittsburgh) on Oct 2, 2022. 

For more info on the convention, check out https://www.pghretrogaming.com/.  RPGs, board games, retro-video-games, bands, and just fun!

 

We greatly appreciate the donations of our Patreon supporters: Eric Witman, Jeff McKinney, Jesse!, Joshua Gopal-Boyd, and Dave Smith!  Y'all make keeping this going possible!

 

As always folks, have fun, be kind to each other, and go play some rpgs!

102: Getting Things Tense

On the eve of Spooky-Month, the Steves sit down and have a chat about different things a GM can do outside of the game itself to help increase that sense of tension while playing games where you want it.  That and some other ramblings and musings!

98: Campaign Planning & Prep

This week the Steves have a chat about planning and prepping for a new campaign.  We discuss a bit of our processes, weaknesses, and fears around starting new campaigns, be they in systems we're long-familiar with, ones we're new to, or somewhere in between.  (Yes, we get into more Star Wars talk!)

93: Porting Adventures to New Systems (rabbit-hole)

So we started with the intent of talking about taking adventures/modules and porting them over to a different system/setting.  Of course, because us, we end up off in a couple rabbit-holes, but there's still some good conversation!

91: Running Star Wars (part II) with GM Hooly

Because you can never have enough Star Wars RPG content (and because Steve just couldn't get left out of the conversation), Hooly is back with another episode talking about running games in the Star Wars universe!

We talk a little bit about using other systems to play in Star Wars, and some talk about what makes a story feel like Star Wars.

Because it gets mentioned a time or 2, and because it's such a great resource, here's a link to Wookiepedia.  https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Main_Page

We intended to have a talk about house rules, and we did, sorta, at times.  Our brains got the best of us, and we went off down some deep tangents, but if you listen to us at all, you know, that's probably what we do best!  Anyway, listen, and enjoy!
