300 episodes

Brett and Sean (BS) are two of your friends talking about tabletop roleplaying games. We don't take ourselves too seriously and don't always agree. That's our charm. Segments include Random Encounter to field comments from listeners, Main Topic, and Die Roll which is 2-4 links to gaming-related stuff. We aren't a dungeons and dragons show, but it's hard not to reference the 300 pound gorilla.

    Non-combat Encounters in RPG’s

    Non-combat encounters in RPG’s… Don’t make encounters about “combat”. What are our thoughts on that? Asks Sky. Create an encounter, it’s up to the players if they make it combat-based…but not always. We also touch on resolving the encounter, typically social in nature. https://forums.gamingandbs.com/t/286-non-combat-encounter-design/524 Announcements Survey to gauge interest in playing online with Brett, Sean...

    Ideal Game Group

    The ideal game group for role-playing games is more than just the perfect amount of participants. It encompasses a wide array of things like types of players, the games you play, whether you game master or play, whether you have game masters as players. Of course we don’t want bad players at the table, but...

    Sometimes, there’s no shortcut for experience. We talked with Tim D about this a bit when we had him on to talk AS&SH.  We need to try and do and keep trying and doing to get good at something. It’s been said you need 10,000 hours to be proficient at a skill.  Does this apply...

    Player Character Health

    We’ve chatted about player character health before, but Brett thought he’d bring it back up as part of the “things I learned” from his Delta Green game around lethality and tracking damage. When a game is lethal it seems to be logical for GMs and Players to want to know exactly what part of a...

GBS

Brett & Sean – The BS in the podcast – are the delightfully quirky hosts. They sometimes talk funny and this adds to their charm. With over 250 episodes it might take you a while to catch up to current because their mantra when listening is start at episode 1 and go forward.

Their host of experience with almost all things TTRPG is vast and the discussions brought forth are compelling and very relevant to the hobby, friendship and being a good person. They also possess an enlightened social awareness with is very refreshing in TTRPG circles. It is good to see that hobby has progressed from teenage boys giggling about breastplates to all types of people playing.

Whether you are a newbie just getting into the hobby to someone who is finding it again after a hiatus or a grognard gamer there is an abundance of discussion topics for every one of you. If I had to choose one TTRPG podcast this might be the one. Take a listen you won’t regret it.

Would be great if

I really want to listen to this podcast but one of the two hosts swears so much it’s a serious crutch If he were to suddenly stop the episode run times might be cut by a third. The other host is fine and you can decide which is which. To be fair, the podcast is labeled explicit. But this isn’t Howard Stern. It’s a podcast on gaming. Swearing does not add value at all, but it does keep me from being able to listen to it with my kids around. I’ll check back in the future to see if it changes. It is unlikely any of your potential audience will be turned away by a *lack* of swearing. So I’d give it another star and consider it great if this area were to be improved on.

Excellent podcast, bad at other things

I had a lot of trouble with this BnB. Check in was very challenging - no passcodes and I couldn’t find a key anywhere. The living room smelled like used beer cans and I’m pretty the basement had dead babies living down there. The fridge had plenty of baking soda.

Then the uber driver spent the whole ride yelling at his ex-husband, taking the long way around Lake Mendota. Crazy driver!

I found the service adequate, but the waiter kept changing the channel away from sportsball to Great British Bake-off, stroking his magnificent beard and muttering “it depends.” Don’t you know I come to this bar to get away from bad TV? Popcorn was ok.

The podcast is pretty great though.
