This episode was recorded on 6/26/2017 using Mumble and edited in Audacity. Due to a system meltdown after updating to Windows 10 “Creator’s Update”, James’ laptop took a huge dump, so we were unable to record originally on 6/19/2017. Anyway, there is a little bit of a quality issue with 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 after 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 has been posted (Session 3) and a Mouse Guard Playtest will be appearing there soon (hopefully).

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.

The first 1d4cast bonus episode!

*Warning: Explicit Content*

That’s right folks! An episode under 1.5 hours does exist :-P. This one is even less than 10 minutes :).

In this bonus episode, we talk about leveling in games, whether they are the DnD model of “this much Exp gives you a level” or the WoD model where “you don’t level, but spend your Exp to increase your stats”.

We are currently working on Episode 4 :).

Thank you for listening. Hope you enjoy :)!
