Episode 3 – character creation

We kick this show off with an explanation of how making a podcast is like running a roleplaying game.  The hosts are introduced, and then John and Chad tell us their tongue-in-cheek (?) vision of a roleplaying game with just one character stat.

The product we review this show is very close to home: our own podcast.  We go over the critiques our listeners have sent us and talk about the changes we’ve made over the past several episodes.

The advice portion covers the art and science of creating solid characters, with special emphasis on background and personality.  We also explain the virtues of intentionally writing in weaknesses.

Hosts: Adam, Chad, Dan, John, Kevin, Tim

This might be the funniest thing I’ve ever heard in the realm of RPG comedy.

If the players decided he had some needed skill there could always be the option of burning the inn down in an attempt to get the guy to go along to earn the money to rebuild it. Some players I know would probably have tried that.

This was my favorite episode so far. Not saying much I know, but it was much for focused and the round table came across as much less condescending. Much more enjoyable.
