Episode 9 - Gamer Parenting

Episode 9 - Gamer Parenting Sorry about the delay - we didn't have our full recording kit, and we gave the Olympus WS-110 a run for its money. This episode was suggested by our expectant co-host, Jacqui, and for this, we invite two Gamer Moms; Michele (who at the time of recording was expecting) and Robin (who after 5 children is expecting at least a couple of them to support her in her retirement). At the time of this posting, Michele, her husband Woody, and big sister Abby, have welcomed Katie into their happy gaming family. And we're happy to report that all are well :). Stephanie and I have been around kids in gaming for years, whether that has meant bringing them along with a significant other, moving the game to the location where the Player/Parent is/making our homes kid-friendly, or...always being prepared...having a current phonebook with the number to Poison Control. Stephanie also hosts a kid-friendly board-game night, where the kids are encouraged to play as well, so tha...

GenCon 2008 Interviews and Demos: Green Fairy Games

The SLGG spotlight is on Green Fairy Games this time, as I got an interview with Justin Bow, creator of 'Fae Noir', and recorded a demo of 'Candycreeps' with Nick Licata (and fellow podcaster J.J from FFoC). And while creating the character sketches was fun, it doesn't translate well to audio, so through the magic of Audacity, we just fast forwarded past that ;). The demo was at the IPR booth, so there was a lot of commotion, which I've tried to filter out as best I can. Our character sketches - Lefty the Undead Superstar Jock and Hello Goth Fashonista A copy of 'Candycreeps' - go to Green Fairy Games and get it, you won't regret it!

GenCon 2008 Interviews and Demos: Green Fairy Games

GenCon 2008 - Interview #1 - Hellas: Worlds of Sun and Stone

Here is the first of several interviews that I was lucky enough to get at GenCon. I had the pleasure of playing a session of 'Godsend Agenda' last GenCon with my fellow AGC co-hosts, Mark and Chris, as well as some of the rest of the Rolemonkeys, and the guys from The Gamemaster Show. This year, Jerry brings us Hellas: Worlds of Sun and Stone. It's an awesome looking game with a deceptively simple mechanic that can handle anything. Also at the booth was Andy Kitkowski - selling Maid the Roleplaying Game - the first Japanese RPG to be translated and released in English. There's a special mystery guest too at the booth! ;) A GenCon story about Jerry - he is such a wonderful guy - there was a little girl with her Mom looking for some Bella Sara cards, and Jerry left his booth, and went hunting for cards - found some - and then went looking for them to make sure they got the cards. Enjoy the interview - and watch for the review of (at least) the QuickStart of Hellas! An Amazoran at the ...

Secret Life of Girl Gamers - The Video Games Live Review

The Video Games Live Review We attended Video Games Live last Friday at the Kentucky Center of the Arts. Jack Wall conducted the Louisville Orchestra in a truly energetic, multimedia performance. Highlights included co-producer Tommy Tallarico introducing pieces, hosting the on-stage competitions, and introducing surprise guests, such as Martin Leung - the Video Game Pianist. Oh, and let's not forget how he rocked out on stage with his guitar, as he and Jack brought together the Orchestra, and the Louisville Choir in an incredible fusion of music, lights, and video. The crowd was enthusiastic and engaged. One of my favorite parts came when Tommy asked for people to open their cell phones (rather than flick their lighters on) and the crowd obliged. Some had smartphones and there was even one laptop in the crowd. I must admit, I had an internal squeek of geeker joy. It was an incredible experience and we'll will certainly be attending next year!

Episode 6 - Part 1 - D&D 4th Edtion Overview - 7/9/2008 69:18

Episode 6 – Part 1 - D&D 4th Edition Overview – 7/9/2008 This episode is so jam-packed with gamer-goodness it's actually *two* episodes! First, overall, we’re a *little* bit late, apologies for that. Jacqui has an important announcement to make, which is also to become a topic for a future episode. And we announce our outing to, and future review of, the Louisville Orchestra performing "Video Games Live" in Louisville July 18th. Be on the lookout here for an interview with the producer, Tommy Tallarico, soon. In this episode however, we give an overview of our first impressions of D&D 4th Edition. Through the Player's Handbook, we see the goal to broaden the appeal of the game without sacrificing the core that has attracted gamers for the last 30+ years. In the Dungeon Masters Guide, we see a thorough how-to for the new GM, including different player-types and how to involve them productively in the game. The Monster Manual has a wide-range of challenging critters and creatures t...

Conventions, what are they, and how do I survive one?

From Carol: So the bleeding edge of the Dresden Files didn't happen due to personal issues, but I plan on at least beta'ing. I swear work won't completely eat my soul... We're back from a short hiatus. We've hit our fifth episode! In one take even! We discuss Conventions, and really get into the guts of what they are, and what goes on at one. What can you do at one? Scheduling your time around gaming, panels, volunteering, filking, jam sessions, room parties, navigating the huckster room, the art shows, guests, kid-friendly programming tracks, hanging with your friends and avoiding the undesirables. The practical matters of conventioning: booking your hotel room, pre-registering, who are your con-mates? What about food, drink, and what if you bring the kids? Just on the edge of a PG-14 rating on this one...some language. We need feedback, people! We haven't really heard much from our listeners lately. Let us know you're out there, and what you want to hear us discuss. Conventions: C...

Ending a Campaign 3/22/2008

In this episode we discuss our experiences with the end of campaigns. Both the one that Jacqui and Carol ended recently, and other games we've been in. Planning is a good thing. Epic isn't always the answer, but done right it's wickedly cool. And yes, the Changeling game is finally over... a 7 year legacy and its super epic (eh, not quite) ending... Going from Endings to Beginnings - Carol will be delving into bleeding edge alpha testing into the Dresden Files RPG being developed by Evil Hat Productions. Check out the Rolemonkeys who are already running sessions as well.

In-Character Relationships...of a romantic nature 2/28/2008

From Carol: Sorry this is so late. Totally my fault. This episode we discuss in-character relationships. Player-character / Non-player character, player-character / player-character, and even Non-player character / Non-player character (hey - it's entertainment for the PCs at least). Why are they good for the game? When are they not good for the game? How do you extract your character from one? How do you inject a relationship into the game? We discuss our own experiences and comfort levels in having our characters interact with other characters in a romantic way. Warning: We do discuss levels of relationships that are considered fairly mature. We also talk about darker plot points that we think should be avoided. Both may not be suitable for younger listeners. Download Episode.
