…and it turned into a podcast blitz

Lordy lou, have there been a bunch of podcast releases whilst I’ve been otherwise occupied desperately trying to finish my scenario for the London Boxed Set (the Kickstarter of which has nearly quadrupled its initial goal) and learning how to repair an F21 error on a Maytag 3000 washer.  Who knew socks were so dangerous?

Here’s what been going on in the realm of Lovecraftian RPG podcasts:

  • The Unspeakable Oath released the audio of a meal time conversation between Adam Scott Glancy, Ken Hite, Shane Ivey, Robin Laws, and Ross Peyton (and a waitress) that occurred at GenCon 2013 talking about their various works in progress.  While it is a wee bit dated, the geological pace that most gaming books progress at means that there is much to entertain and inform here, not the least of which is half-audible Muzak background.  Frankie Valli costs me 1/1d4 points of Sanity)
  • The Miskatonic University Podcast crew (this time of Keepers Chad and Dan) have a grab-bag episode covering everything from Twists in gaming, baby farms, and the London Box set.
  • The Good Friends of Jackson Elias have been very busy of late, release one episode a week!  Since I’ve mentioned them last, they’ve talked about The Rats in the Walls and spells in CoC 7th Ed.  Apparently my ribbing them about their monomaniacal hatred of “Attract Fish”* struck a nerve. 😉

Hopefully that will keep you occupied for a few hours.

* For my part – and I’ve not finished listening to the episode – all I feel obliged to say on this point is that “Attract Fish” is a simply little spell that the Deep Ones can bribe their human victims… err… friends with and are implied in the text of “The Shadow Over Innsmouth”.  Maybe we can just have a generic “Attract {Animal}” spell?

Random Encounter – 1d3 podcasts

We’ve got a couple of new blog episodes and some other minor bits to note:


(Confidential to {Kidney Disease Symptoms} When you said “Person.. I am not a lot into studying, but by some means I got to learn lots of content on your blog. Its wonderful how fascinating it is that i can visit a person very often. –” I had a few thoughts:

  • People respond to personal greetings, not being called ‘person’.
  • Your first sentence is awkward – try “I don’t enjoy studying but I did learn something from your blog.”
  • Try “I plan to visit your blog often.” for sentence #2.
  • If you’re going to randomly pick a name for your fake account ‘Kidney Disease Symptoms’ kinda sucks.

I hope that helps.)
