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 32 – Powered by the Apocalypse (LIVE)

In this episode, we are missing John, and broadcasting LIVE with Google Hangouts “On Air”. We ran into a few glitches here and there, so the sound quality does suffer a little. We talk a little bit about games we have run or played in since the last recording, various upcoming conventions, current Kickstarters, as well as discuss website posts from our listeners.

The episode’s main topic is all about Powered by the Apocalypse Engine. We mostly discuss the MC duties, Core game mechanics, and character creation as well as moves. After that we list off several hacks of the game and give a brief overview of each.

We hope that you enjoy the show.

Episode 22 – Post-Apocalyptic Bullshit Cyber Elves

*WARNING* This podcast is explicit!

Hello Everyone!

Let me first apologize for the tardiness of this episode. It was recorded for February and was supposed to be out last week. With 1d4Con’s Pre-registration opening last Saturday and all the stuff that needed to be done, I just couldn’t make the time until now.

Now, I present to you our episode about Indie Games. More specifically, the rise and relevance of such games. This is the first episode since September that we’ve have the full cast on. I was able to make it back, despite having my Wisdom teeth pulled recently. There is some discussion about 1d4Con and other conventions and we read two emails. Once we make it to the topic, we start out with a little history lesson, get into how the movement took off and what was affected by it, and then we talk about our changing personal preferences in accordance with the gaming hobby.

Hope you enjoy!

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.
