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.

If you have any comments, feedback, system you want us to talk about, or even a topic you want us to discuss; either leave a comment on this episode’s post, send us an email, or use our Contact Page! We’d love to hear from you and will read your email on the next episode!

Hello Everyone!

Happy Anniversary to us, 4 years and still kicking! This month we have a full cast plus special guests, Henry, Katie, and Steve.

This episode focuses on Dungeons & Dragons: 5th Edition (aka DnD 5e or DnD Next). All of us have had to chance to look at the rules and even play a little bit. We discuss the differences between the free BASIC pdfs (See below for links) and the Players Handbook, New rules and rule changes, as well as our impressions.

New to Dungeons and Dragons or a little skeptical about the new edition? Have a listen to our fair review and discussion. We hope that you enjoy the show.

Episode 24 – That is so EPIC!

1d4cast_itunes_logo_huge_NEW

Hello Everyone!

This was recorded at the end of June. Due to traveling for vacation and changing jobs, this has been delayed until now. It is only edited slightly as Monica’s mic would drop words and her connection dropped near the end. We were unable to record for July, so this episode will count for both months.

This episode focuses on the questions, “What does it mean to be Epic?” and “How do I make my game more Epic?”

Have a listen and we hope that you enjoy our discussion.

Episode 23 – Post-1d4Con 2014 Wrap Up

1d4cast_itunes_logo_huge_NEW

Hello Everyone!

This is May 2014’s episode. We decided to try out recording from Google Hangouts instead of Mumble this time. Please let us know if you like how this episode sounds compared to previous episodes. We may try Mumble again, especially since Monica got a new mic headset.

Anyway, this month we talk about 1d4Con Past, Present, and Future. We cover how our games went, what ideas worked as well as what didn’t, and some plans for the future! We have our full regular cast along with guests Andy and Henry.

Hope you enjoy!

No Rest For the Wicked Actual Play – Part Deux

1d4cast_AP_itunes_logo

Here is April’s episode. One last in before 1d4Con. Hope to see you there!

It’s a short actual play of Monica’s Apocalypse World hack, called “No Rest For The Wicked”. Joining us this time is Monica who was voluntold to MC for us, Steve, Katie (Dirtskirt) and James.

This is our 6th non-campaign AP episode and is Steve or James’ second go around with the system; however, it is Katie’s first time with a *World game. If you know anything about us, hilarity and mishap definitely ensue… This is a really short episode. We recreate history between the James and Steve’s characters and add Katie’s to the mix. This is sort of a weird sequel to the first game, but enjoyable nevertheless.

MC – Monica

Players:
– Steve as the Soldier (Leo)
– James as the Mechromancer (Turing)
– Katie as the Gunzerker (Snuggles)

Hope you enjoy.
