Ok, ok...  2021 was a LONG time ago and this episode is horrendously late.  We know...  However we're back - that's the main thing, so settle back and enjoy this - rather long - episode where we warble on about 2021 and all the cool things we've played, bought and backed.  WARNING: tangents abound in this episode!

We finally get around to reviewing Cubicle 7's Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 4th edition!  As a life long fan of 1st ed, how does this new edition shape up?  Will it let us continue to adventure in that grim world of perilous adventure that we're used to, or has it turned into something else?

In this episode we talk about everything that is good and bad (in our ever so humble opinion) about 4e including, but not limited to char...

This episode we take a look at Palladium games - the company founded in 1981 most famous for its MEGAVERSAL system.  Forty years later and the system is fairly unchanged which is charming and wildly frustrating in equal measure...  We talk about our experiences with their games, their system and some of the idiosyncrasies that comes with it.

We WERE going to do a history episode, but we hadn't spoken in ages so we decided to ra...

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
