    Let's Roll: GURPS Mars/Ice Age

    Let's Roll: GURPS Mars/Ice Age

    Chapters 3 and 4 of Siskoid's GURPS Shftworld campaign feature GURPS Mars and GURPS Ice Age (yes, cavemen), which are similar in a number of ways. To discuss these games and their role-playing opportunities, he welcomes back to the show his players Daniel "Pout" Ouellet and Alexandre "Beb" Hébert. It's also a good avenue to talk about how a GameMaster can surprise his or her players. Ready to roll?

    Let's Roll: Forgotten Realms

    Let's Roll: Forgotten Realms

    Siskoid has finally bowed down to public pressure and produced an episode about Dungeons & Dragons. But it's too big a topic, so he and his guests, fellow DungeonMasters Fred Melanson and Jonathan Schaefer-Hames, are drilling down into the specifics of D&D's default setting - the Forgotten Realms! What's so great about this world and why has it become THE choice of sword & sorcery adventuring? Plus, GameMaster advice and your feedback from our previous episode. Let's Roll... NOW ON ITS OWN FEED!

    Let's Roll: GURPS Black Ops

    GURPS again? Yes, well, it's quite versatile. And with GURPS Black Ops/Warehouse 23, Men in Black as if directed by John Woo, we certainly tested its limits on the cinematic side of things. Players Chalif and Fred discuss their experience with GameMaster Siskoid on this short, but high-octane campaign. Then, Siskoid talks about creating diceless moments for players in out GM Advice column.

Come out and play!

You might think a podcast about the DC role playing game from the '80s is a pretty nerdy endeavor. You're not wrong. After listening to an episode, I do feel like I missed out on this phenomenon. The hosts obviously have passion for the game, and the sourcebooks sound like great resources for DC at the time. I would play! Let your Freak Flags fly!

A Column Shift of Lively Discussion!

Even if you never rolled a 20-sided dice, you can enjoy this podcast, where hosts Shag and Siskoid take you through the various releases in the classic DC Roleplaying game. From the original box set to the source books and beyond, if it was part of the game, it will be covered here, with the usual twinkle in the eye you expect from the Fire and Water Podcast crew!

Great show for RPG

It is worth the listen when it finally comes out.
