This episode was recorded on 5/15/2017 using G+ Hangouts and recorded by routing the sound through a mixer and into Audacity. There is a little bit of a quality issue with this episode as there are some weird pops and noises around Monica’s and Henry’s mics that I was unable to completely remove. We used Levelator to level and normalize the audio before editing in Audacity. This show has been minimally edited to remove a few gaps of silence and fix some quality issues here and there.

Don’t forget to check out our 1d4cast Actual Play Episodes in iTunes, they are on a separate feed. Another Vampire episode on its way as well as a Mouse Guard Playtest.

Episode 20 – Skyscrapers of Gygaxian Text

Hello everyone!

My baby boy, Elijah, is doing great! I hope to get back to this podcasting thing in January :).

Anyway, the 1d4cast crew, along with special guest Henry, got together again to bring you a new episode. We have more feedback email to read from Bob H. of Australia about our Halloween episode and Actual Plays. If you have anything that you want to tell us, let your voice be heard. We’ll read it on the next episode.

The topic for discussion boils down to What Games You Can’t Live Without which is a take on the “desert island” scenario. They talk about what game would you choose to keep if you had to lose everything else, which game to be able to replay differently, to be able to play a whole lot more of, be able to experience again with a blank slate, and many other burning questions.

Episode 19 – Aneurysms and Crocodiles

Hello everyone!

My baby boy, Elijah, was born on 10/10/2013. Due to this, I am forced to take a small break away from podcasting to be with my little one.

However; the 1d4cast crew, along with special guest Henry, got together to bring you our Halloween episode. The topic for discussion is monsters and let me tell you that there is some solid content in this episode. They talk about what scares them and their comfort levels, favorite monsters to use against the players, favorite monsters or situations to encounter, and favorite monster races to play as when the option is available. We also have more feedback mail to read from Zac about our “A Closer Look At Skills” episode.

A Closer Look At… Skill Use

Here is a new ACLS episode where we tackle how different systems use skills. This is not a comprehensive list of systems, but it is a very diverse one, covering both traditional games and indie games. It’s always interesting to see not only how the use of skills evolve through editions but between games as well.

Also, we have some news to share and we apologize if there is any interruption to the feed.
