Episode 28 – Getting A Clue

1d4cast_itunes_logo_+2_huge

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.

Welcome to 2015! This month we talk about our gaming related goals for 2015, our current (and past) favorite games, and the sometimes abusive relationship we have our guilty pleasure games.

Thanks to Michael Phillips for writing in about Dresden FAE!

We want to encourage you to play all of the games! Set some gaming goals for yourself and explore new systems!

We are running a contest that will land one (or two if we get a lot of submissions!) lucky person with a $10 gift certificate to DriveThruRPG. Just leave us a comment or send us an email and let us know what your favorite game is and why.

Episode 26 – This is your Fate!

1d4cast_itunes_logo_+2_huge

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.
