    Episode 8 - The Merging of Comic, Gaming and RPG Culture

    Episode 8 - The Merging of Comic, Gaming and RPG Culture

    We all have a beginning to our gaming story, and for us that has to be comic books. Before there was anything remotely like the internet, we used to have to consume our content the old fashion way, printed words and drawings on paper. Going to the comic store was an adventure in of itself, as there weren't many out there and the printings were limited. It was rough, but it was worth it, and those early Marvel, DC and other independent comics got us started in fantasy, sci-fi, horror and more. Fast forward to today and the it feels like it's all become this huge monster with all the different facets connected together. Comics have become moves, games and tabletop RPGs.

    Episode 7 - First-Person Shooters and other Button Mashing

    Episode 7 - First-Person Shooters and other Button Mashing

    You can't roll dice all the time. Sometimes you just want to sit back, pick up a controller and enjoy some digital entertainment shooting terrorists, rustling up vermin or slicing zombies. Video games are a great escape from reality either solo or with friends. Here at Basement Quest we have a long history of mashing buttons on various game systems plus PC. One of the main focus of this episode is the subject of first person shooters, their history and what it would take to get Eddie to like them more.

    Episode 6 - The Sisters of Battle (Warhammer 40k)

    The newest factions are coming into the Warhammer 40,000 universe and Mike cannot contain his excitement for the Sisters of Battle. What started out as a offshoot of existing faction is being developed into their own feminine-styled religious order with amazing skills and bonuses. While referencing the Nights of the Game Table blog, Mike breaks down the Adepta Sororitas while comparing some of the other armies strengths and weaknesses while battling the sisters.

    Episode 5 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Other Strangeness plus Robotech

    Episode 5 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Other Strangeness plus Robotech

    Since our launch we’ve had nothing but great support from the gaming community and since launching on Apple Podcasts we’ve received our first review. In celebration of that, we are dedicating this episode to the games that got us starting in the Palladium system. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Robotech RPG. We had been big fans of the original TMNT comic plus the Robotech television show, so being avid Dungeons & Dragons players, jumping into the RPG’s based on two of our favorite properties was a no-brainer. The license for these games has come and gone twice for Palladium Books but we still look on these games and the artwork fondly.

    Episode 4 - JJ Abams Star Trek and Star Wars

    Episode 4 - JJ Abams Star Trek and Star Wars

    With the release of Rise of the Skywalker, JJ Abrams has not rebooted, revisited, regurgitated, re-somethinged two great sci-fi franchises. We go through the current films compared to the classics and give our analysis on the state of the epics. Has he pushed them forward, simply played it safe or has he just straight up ruined them both. The boys of Basement Quest will discuss.

    Episode 3 - When the Party Splits

    Episode 3 - When the Party Splits

    Nothing can be more frustrating than when the party splits up into two different directions. Especially when you have a perfectly planned scenario for your players. You must now rely on your experience and wit to accommodate the players and keep the flow of gameplay going. Even despite best efforts the game can drag and players can become bored. This wasn't the case in our last adventure of Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition. In this episode we break down the scene and give tips for both player and DM's on the best way to handle these situations and still keep things interesting and fun for everyone.

Well Met

I’ve been playing Palladium since the 90s, and was thrilled to see this new podcast start with an analysis of the system! Here’s hoping for some TMNT love some day.
