    Episode 102: Out of Time

    As the Guilders attempt to obtain the final book they need, they are contacted by a relatively new acquaintance with some bad news.  Time is running out and the waiting room of the restricted section of the Agmar Library may not be the safe haven it once was.

    Reckless A-Talk: Rowan Zeoli (Rascal News)

    Reckless A-Talk: Rowan Zeoli (Rascal News)

    Hello listeners! Welcome to another episode of Reckless A-Talk, our TTRPG interview show where we sit down with some of our favorite writers, players, GMs, and streamers to get to know a little bit more about what makes them who they are.

    I am as always your host GM Nathan, and I’m so excited to be back for our first full episode of 2024, PARTICULARLY with this wonderful and DARE I SAY NEWSWORTHY interview.

    I got to once again be a huge nerd about tabletop games AND about journalism, as I got to enjoy a very fun, very thought-provoking chat with co-founder of TTRPG news outlet Rascal Rowan Zeoli.

    Rowan is one of the big, independent news voices in the space, with phenomenal work done particularly in the review and interview spheres. In this episode, we talk a lot about her experiences doing both for Rascal, a new independent, reader-supported, worker-owned outlet covering tabletop games and shows. But we also talk a lot about identity, creativity, the twists and turns of life, collaborative critique, and what journalism as a service means.

    Most interestingly and refreshingly, we talked a LOT about the importance of news coverage and critical review in the tabletop and actual play world.

    Rowan just has some really wonderful perspectives and is so clearly a very thoughtful AND funny person, so this was frankly a very easy interview to conduct because talking to cool people is easy and good and fun turns out.

    Before I throw you to the episode, I want to do a small appeal to everyone listening. I was a hyper-local journalist for many years, and I cannot stress enough how important I personally believe small outlet journalism is to the world. Please find outlets in your hometowns, outlets that cover things you care about, and other people doing the hard work of shining a spotlight where there is darkness. And then, if you’re able, pay them money to keep doing what they’re doing, or at least subscribe to newsletters and otherwise vote with your dollars and attention.

    Anyway, that’s enough from me - as always if you enjoy this episode please go check out our other Reckless A-Talk interviews and maybe even our actual play episodes.

    We have links to all the stuff we talk about in the episode in the show notes including lots of links to Rowan’s journalism. With that - I’ll see you next time!

    Episode 100: Reckless Abandon - A Regency Romance

    The Guilders, having become accustomed to receiving book locations via a card, were slightly surprised to find that the next card looked like an invitation to a fancy gala. Stepping through the doorway, they find themselves having to play specific parts in order to find the book they need. The Players are playing the Characters who are playing the Roles they have chosen for themselves. What could possibly go wrong?

Amazing Podcast!

Reckless Attack is a truly delightful listen. The cast clearly enjoys the game, they bounce off of each other perfectly, and Nathan is one of the best DMs I’ve had the pleasure of listening to. The sound quality and technical aspects are impeccable and I’m excited for every new episode.

All that being said, 5 stars for the stacks

Fun, exciting and completely reckless

One of the best actual plays out there. Tightly edited, inventive with great camaraderie and unique storytelling. Highly recommend.

etehall ,

Fun and innovative D&D actual play

This is an amazing D&D AP podcast. It is well-edited, and the episodes are a very reasonable length. The players have great chemistry, and they do some really innovative collaborative world building where everyone at the table is involved in building the world of their story. Also, their running gag about the character that is essentially a the stack of frogs lends just enough levity while the enemies keep the stakes high. 5/5, definitely recommended for anyone looking for a D&D podcast that doesn’t required 4-5 hours of time per week.
