Episode 35 – You are all Savages!

In this episode, we perform a system analysis on Savage Worlds. We go throught the general rules as laid out in the Savage Worlds Deluxe 2nd Edition (we specifically reference the Explorers edition). We explore many of the official settngs released or licensed by Pinnacle Entertainment Group. We also provide several other resources for Savage Worlds goodness, all linked in the shownotes below.

We mourn the loss of Steven Russell of Rite Pubishing, who died in a fatal car accident earlier this month.

In happier news, TsunamiCon is a go! The kickstarter did not work out, but Erik and his team were able to come up with an agreement with the venue. Humble Bundle is selling Vampire: The Masquerade Revised 3rd Edition pdfs and epubs at Pay What You Want up to $33 for a total value of about $263. (Available until August 10th)

Also we are doing a giveaway. Supplies are limited, so its first come first serve basis. Listen to the episode to find out how to claim a voucher.

Episode 28 – Getting A Clue

Hey! We aren’t dead…. yet!

We do apologize for the long hiatus, as Conventions (planning and executing) and Life in general have gotten in the way of, and eaten our podcasting time away.

In this episode, we talk a little bit about 1d4Con 2015, John got married the weekend after, and James (me) is having twins! We also talk about the “Favorite Game” Contest and announce our two winners: Zac C. and Moe T.

The episode’s main topic is all about GUMSHOE, written by Robin D. Laws, expanded upon by many great writers/developers (Ken Hite, Kevin Kulp, David Allsop, Jason Morningstar, Graham Walmsley, Gareth Rider-Hanrahan, and many more), and published/distributed by Pelgrane Press. We have a discussion about some of the game system’s mechanics and the many flavors/varieties that it is available in.

We hope that you enjoy the show.

Episode 26 – This is your Fate!

Hello Everyone!

This would have been October’s episode, but we had some major technical issues that prevented us from recording. A busy schedule kept me from attending this make up episode.

Thank you Zac, for another letter. We appreciate that you take the time to write in and are happy to read it in our episode!

We bring on Katie and Henry as official 1d4casters. This allows us more schedule flexibility if one or more people can’t make it to a recording. Also, we are planning to go back to our roots and do more System review shows. Hoping to do a review show every other month or every third month.

This episode focuses on Fate Core & Fate Accelerated. Almost all of us have had some experience with the Fate system. We discuss the rules and mechanics of Fate, the differences between Fate Core and Accelerated, a ton of setting and resource options (although not comprehensive in any way), as well as our impressions of the two systems.

Are you Fate-curious or just want to take your game to the next level? Have a listen to our fair review and discussion. We hope that you enjoy the show.

1d4cast Episode 3: Run! Don’t Walk In The Shadows

*Warning: Explicit Content*

In this episode, we talk about Shadowrun 4th Edition. We discuss the setting, character building, game mechanics, magic, hacking, equipment, and how it compares to the older editions. We talk about past games and give examples of play along with our opinions of the game.

I would like to apologize to those of you who couldn’t download the other episodes, we apparently went over our 15 GB bandwidth allocation. Also we had a late start because October has been busy for all of us. This is October’s episode, the news section is out of date now, and we will be releasing an episode shortly for November as well.

Thanks for listening to us :).
