Where I pretend I'm LindyBeige and talk about the intersection of historical medieval arms and armor and Roleplaying games. Also I discuss the very cool combat mechanics from The Princess Bride RPG. I still find it inconceivable that the geek/nerd community isn't going nuts for this game. Its the Princess Bride for crying out loud. I think I'm going to try and finally do an Actual Play to raise its profile a bit.

Everything is Awesome!

In this exciting episode I talk to Wes Otis about his work in sound design and his like of 10 minute audio loops for role playing games. He isn’t really a Fudge guy, but his products are system neutral and I’ve always been really interested in background/atmospheric audio. He also talks a little about his own podcast 12 sided stories.

I think I’ve finally settled on a theme song, I’ve gone with... Read more

Just quick warning I do use the word disabled to refer to people in this one. I know its not a huge flub, but I do talk about a game designed (in part) to facilitate an understanding of people with physical limitations and it bothered me when I was listening to the episode, but I didn’t have time to rerecord. Sorry if anyone is offended.

In this episode I discuss Fairy Magic a Celtic tweak on African Spirit Magic from “A M... Read more

You're not your I'm aware, its incorrect for URL and laziness reasons.

I know its short, and I know I didn’t manage to do an episode last week. I think I need to stop making broad proclamations about how I’m going to do the show and just do it. I’m killing the Patreon as of now, patrons will notice I didn’t put through a charge for the last episode. I really appreciate the patrons I did have, but I’m just doin... Read more

Welcome back for season 2 Fudge Fans!

Sorry its been so long. I gave myself a couple of months up hoping I could stockpile material to crank out episodes more reliably this year, and instead life happened all over the place. Still, season 2 should still be a pretty great ride. 

In this episode I interview Jacob Wood of Accessible Games. We Discuss

    Hey guys, just a look back over what I've learned from this season, and what I intend for the next. Also a surprise interview with Bnyw from the Discord/IRC about the Otherworlders IRC network.

    The cliff notes version of the podcast is that I'm going to create a tv-esque seasonal podcast with focused topical episodes. I'm shooting for weekly episodes between March and September (about 28 episodes), with on... Read more

    <p>Unlucky 13, If I had planned it out better this would have been the Halloween episode. Ah well, such is life.

    <p>I'm going to stop apologizing for the audio quality since those of you on the discord made it incredibly obvious that I'm probably making mountains out of mole hills. Also I listened to some radio professionals and realized they make the exact same sounds.

    Happy Halloween, its like Summerween in the Fall!

    <p>In this episode I explore developing Fudge horror games by pilfering other, more established, horror games for clever mechanics. To the best of my knowledge there isn't a solid long-running Fudge Horror game out there, so I'm looking at ideas that can be borrowed from the Fate Horror Toolkit, the Pacesetter RPG, and Call of Cthulhu. I also plug the upc... Read more

    Here is an episode where I wax poetic about dice. I was trying a cardioid langolier mic, I'm debating if I like the audio quality of it. I'm testing it in hopes of doing some interviews over the phone soon. In this episode I'll talk about features of Fudge Dice, sources for these wondrous creatures, and alternatives to them. Additionally I talk a little about when not to roll them bones, and discuss the possibility of d... Read more

    I apologize if it sounds like your sitting in my mouth, I was getting a cold and had the mic closer than I should have.

    In this episode I discuss the nature, usage, and viability of attribute scores in Fudge. I think fudge gets some flack for being an "incomplete" game or "just a toolkit" because of the nebulous description of how attributes work in the game. Attributes are recommended, but totally option... Read more

    So actually, I am going to review a Magical Medley.

    I've been busy lately, which is why this is coming out a week late. The next episode should come out on time because this is actually one episode split into two parts for time. I kind of rambled a bit, and got off topic here and there, but I decided to keep it all in since I f... Read more

    edit: sorry also for the inaccuracy. Ignore my explanation of scale in this episode. I'll clarify it in the next episode. Sorry.

    Sorry for the delay, I'm feeling much better. I'm going to try to prerecord an episode or two ahead to prevent this in the future. This episode is all about answering questions, specifically this one:
