    The Dice Punks Play Dicepunk

    The Dice Punks Play Dicepunk

    Our humble playcast begins with a two-episode one-shot in Psionics, a game in the Dicepunk system (no relation) by Devon Oratz.



    At a small, unusual school in rural America, several students have recently become aware that they have... unusual abilities -- and they're about to have a pretty terrible day.





    "War Eagle!" is a greeting-slash-cheer used by Auburn University in Alabama, despite the fact that their mascot is officially the Tigers.Hüsker Dü is the name of both a board game and a hardcore punk band.The Mediterranean civilizations of the late Bronze Age experienced a collective, catastrophic collapse, seemingly due to a variety of factors.The idea of an OODA Loop was military in origin, but is applied in response strategies that many teachers in United States schools are trained in, in the event of an active shooter on campus. (In the session, Robin has Nic refer to the student handbook for response strategies that are, in the GM's experience, more rational and effective than much of what teachers in the real world are trained in.)

    Teenage Wasteland

    Our humble playcast begins with a two-episode one-shot in Psionics, a game in the Dicepunk system (no relation) by Devon Oratz.



    Their sole remaining trustworthy adult having fallen, can the troubled teens of the St. Daniel Academy make it through the worst school-day ever in one piece?





    Ness from the SNES game EarthBound (Mother 2 in Japan) uses a skill called "PK Fire" in the Super Smash Bros. franchise. (It sounds like this.) Avatar: The Last Airbender is fantastic, and if you haven't seen it, you should watch it, but for our purposes, one of the four types of elemental magic/martial arts in the setting is firebending.As the poet once said: "School's Out" by Alice Cooper

    Riotous, Quiet - Nightfall

    Riotous, Quiet - Nightfall

    We are very excited to bring you our very first full campaign, Nightfall! Using a combined system of REIGN and Nobilis, and set in our very own brand-new mythic fantasy setting of Mieleth, Nightfall focuses on a couple of unfortunates in the region of Taraxis who find themselves suddenly elevated to demigod status.





    Number of times 666 has been rolled: 2As the poet said... "Enter Sandman," by MetallicaThe Thrilling Adventure Hour is a lovely "new-time podcast in the style of old-time radio." It's been basically concluded for a while now, though, so it doesn't appear that the behind-the-scenes episode I was referring to is readily available, though. Alas!Kaya gives Dusa vibes (or, given her preferred address of Lyssa, these vibes, perhaps?)

    Sorry for the mysterious clicking noise...Man did I use "swamped" a lot early in this episode!
