    Ep 130 - Is Realism Overrated

    We all love campaigns that have actions and reactions grounded in realism but in this episode, Jeremy asks, is the work to make things realistic worth it?  Would it be better for you to spend that time preparing the next balls to the wall adventure than determining the realistic after effects of a kobold raid against the town's grain storage?  Tune in to find out.

    Ep 129 - Pathfinder Nexus

    Ep 129 - Pathfinder Nexus

    Listener Peter sent an email asking about Paizo's planned Pathfinder Nexus so I went digging through the archives and recorded interviews from PaizoCon to discuss the latest I could find.

    In this episode I also ask someone to bring me Jason Buhlman but not literally.  I just want to talk to him about adventure ideas.  This isn't a "bring me the head of my enemies" kind of thing.

    Maybe I don't need to record or write descriptions until I'm off the pain meds...

    Ep 127 - Keeping 1st Level PCs Alive

    Low level characters die so easily.  The game world is full of traps, monsters and all sorts of things looking to do them harm.  As a player, how to you keep your fragile character alive?  As a DM, how do you change your game to make it not quite so deadly?  After all, we don't want to go back to the bad old days when we all had multiple characters in case ours died every single game session.
