A nerdy joy of a podcast

Having fairly recently come back to RPGs after decades away, Frankenstein’s RPG has proved a perfect way to discover what’s been going on in the years I’ve missed, get reacquainted with old favourite systems and to remember the joys of dissing Traveller. Funny, thought-provoking and wonderfully quixotic.

This really shouldn’t work as a podcast

Role playing game rules are dull, they’re the least interesting part of any RPG. They’re either too complex, too simple, or just get in the way of having fun whilst you wait for someone to find the rules for how a fireball works. Conceptually, this should be as interesting as listening to four friends discussing the instruction manuals for different brands of coffee machines.

But it’s not. Probably like all the best podcasts, the joy and enthusiasm of the participants makes this a real pleasure to listen to. Contributors are genuinely arguing the case for their favourite rules, and the host and Traveller RPG fanboy, Dave, adds humour and a sense of direction.

The whole thing also feels like a massive extended surreal joke.

Great listening

This is a pretty geeky podcast for fans of RPGs. In depth discussion and debate of different aspects of RPGs. The host and guests are very knowledgeable and humorous. Definitely recommended.
