    Questlandia: Part One

    Questlandia: Part One

    After interviewing Hannah Shaffer, we knew we had to play Turtlebun's Questlandia (https://turtlebun.itch.io/questlandia). This episode has everything you need, provided what you need is a town built around drinking bug pee, social upheaval, questionable casting choices, and not a small amount of IMDB trivia.

    This first episode has all our world building and character creation, so enjoy it and make sure you come back next week when we play through the world we created. I'm a big fan of how it turned out and I hope you all enjoy. Thanks for listening!

    If you want to support the Pod of Blunders and help ensure we can keep bringing you interviews and actual plays, please head to www.patreon.com/podofblunders to learn what your $1/$5/$10 pledge will get you. (Hint: access to our fantastically active discord, exclusive episodes of Jumping the Street Sharks, free games, etc.)

    Also, a special thanks to Rolemusic for our intro and outro tune taken from the track Pokimonkey! If you enjoy the tune, check out more of Rolemusic's work here https://freemusicarchive.org/music/Rolemusic or learn about the artist here http://rolemusic.sawsquarenoise.com/

    Hearthside Chat with Hannah Shaffer of Turtlebun

    Hearthside Chat with Hannah Shaffer of Turtlebun

    Well...technically, Hearthside Chats, if I'm being honest. It took so long since Hannah (@hanbandit) and I had our first interview that I had to ask her to come back on the show for an update! Make sure you check out Hannah and her design partner Evan Rowland's (@adrawnnovel) wonderfully weird games over on their website, https://turtlebun.com/ and on their itch page, https://turtlebun.itch.io/ and support them directly via Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/turtlebun. Oh, and they're also fantastic podcasters so make sure you give a listen to Design Doc which is part of the ONE SHOT Podcast Network (http://oneshotpodcast.com/interview-discussion/design-doc/.)

    Lastly, if you want to know what the hell we're talking about re: The Minds Eye videos, look no further: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmE4IWPaULE

    I think that's all the links I mentioned...if I forgot anything, yell at me on Twitter!

    Corner Office: Part Two

    Corner Office: Part Two

    Hello, Actioneers! It has recently come to management's attention that many of you are using this podcast as a means of distracting yourself from the doldrums of the day. This is unacceptable. Doldrums and depression suffered by our employees are not to be remedied by entertainment. They are to be suffered through in stoic silence as the only true cure for misery is a love of hard work and a dedication to Company Co. Be Glad You're Sad! Let the triviality of an existence spent within your cube inspire you to achieve great things, not for yourself but for our shareholders! And remember, the beatings will continue until morale improves.

    Once again, we want to give a special adulation to our Actioneer Conan the Lybarian (@Conan_Lybarian) for working through his lunch hours to come up with the game we're playing this week, Corner Office. If you see Conan in the halls or by the water cooler, make sure you give him a firm pat on the back and let him know what a good job he did. Of course, please do not exceed the single pat on the back. Two or more pats on the back will be considered harassment and/or assault and perpetrators of such acts will be subject to the Disciplinary Board. If you would like to have  a positive fiscal impact on Conan's bottom line, please consider picking up a copy of Corner Office from his itch.io page: https://conan-lybarian.itch.io/corner-office/devlog/290350/welcome

    Now if you would be so kind, please return to your desks before we have to release the efficiency wasps from the vents.

    Corner Office: Part One

    Corner Office: Part One

    Good morning, you productive little worker bees! This is Nate from HR and I just want to thank you for your hard work and dedication in these troubling and challenging times. Though the apocalypse may be raging outside, inside the walls of Company Co. Headquarters, our only concerns should be promoting a synergy-focused work environment and seeking new avenues of revenue development.

    We want to give a special adulation to our Actioneer Conan the Lybarian (@Conan_Lybarian) for working through his lunch hours to come up with the game we're playing this week, Corner Office.

    One Shot: This Game Takes Place in Your Home Town

    One Shot: This Game Takes Place in Your Home Town

    Richard and I haven't had the chance to hang out face-to-face recently, what with the move and all. We thought we'd remedy that with a good ol' fashion Jenga-based TTRPG! Last time, we played the excellent Wickies and made it all the way to the end of the game without dying somehow. Can we push our luck again and come survive the fall of our hometown? Will our Jenga tower collapse just like society has? Can soup cans float in water?

    Tune in and find out for yourself!

    ...also, no. Soup cans do not float in water. Shoutout to a mysterious Twitter user known only as The Scientist for conducting an experiment to prove once and for all soup cans cannot float. More like cant's of soup, amirite?

    Grab a copy of Jack Blair's (@toyourstations) This Game Takes Place in Your Home Town today and try your hand at navigating a very personal apocalypse!
