    EPISODE 153 — Farewell...For Now

    Well, Let's just put it back and you convince Mr. Posehn to resurrect the show, and we'll all pretend this never happened.

    EPISODE 152 — Bowel Semantics

    Just downloaded the new episode. Almost don't want to listen to it and save it for a later date as if that will somehow make the show last.

    Nerd Poker Fan Campaign?

    And, I've never used Roll20, I'd love to see how like/unlike the social aspect of D&D it would be. (I suppose that'd be all up to the participants, though).

    Nerd Poker Fan Campaign?

    Man, I wish I had time to play an extra campaign. I am DMing one and playing in another. My GF would murder me if I added a third. If there's interest down the line, and I end up losing one of my groups, keep me in mind and keep this thread open. I am used to playing 3.5, 3.75 and 5e. Also, I'm in Vancouver, WA. So, again, PST time zone would line up with you all.

    Gerry here. You'll be hearing my stupid voice again soon.

    Damn, good news on both fronts! I dig this Kickstarter campaign, and you can't beat that price. It's doing nothing to curb my Kickstarter addiction, though.

    Nerd Poker Is Ending :(

    Speaking of Hypothetical send-offs, Could Chuck Mangione come in and play you guys out on your last song?

    Nerd Poker Is Ending :(

    Dammit. Well, at least the wandering ends (but I would have preferred the game stay on the air even with that) . I hope they go out on a strong note for the last few episodes. Thanks for they years of entertainment guys!!! All of you have been great and this podcast has meant a lot to me; getting me through some tough times, personally, as well as some majorly boring times at work. Hard to imagine not getting to hear this group week after week. Something I'll have to get used to, I suppose. Seriously though, where the hell am I going to get my Ken fix??? I'll be able to catch Dan, Blaine, Steve and Brian on other things. But when it comes to Ken, am I just going to gave to put the Karate Kid on loop constantly? Dude is funny as hell, and I hope somehow he gets a new podcast I can listen to.

    EPISODE 149 — Ambassador of Evil

    From Clerks 2, Randal's reenactment of the LoTR Trilogy is the living embodiment of what this "giants land" has become.

    EPISODE 149 — Ambassador of Evil

    I'm sorry, but no... it wasn't. This has been the same old tired travelling that has been going on for months now. The events of this week's adventure should have been something that transpired in about 5 minutes of decent roleplaying. This never-ending cycle of hostility, zero storyline and what I'm now going to call "the trail of listener's tears", is just beyond stupid. This coming on the heels of weeks of well done gaming with interesting dialogue and characters was a regression that was definitely not needed.

    EPISODE 146 — Moon Festival Pt. 2

    I believe they record these every two weeks, meaning tomorrow's (10/14/15) episode would have been recorded yesterday (Monday, 10/12). And if you haven't noticed by now, all of this is sorta "seat of their pants" type stuff. And I love your uninformed reply, because that's totally how snarky douche-filled internet comments are made.

    EPISODE 146 — Moon Festival Pt. 2

    Yes, I want to see Blaine back in as a character. Dan NEEDS to remain at the helm DMing. With all these glowing reviews and enthusiasm, I would hate to see this rejuvenated interest deflate. I think you've really stepped in it now if you try going back to that droning Giant storyline, there's going to be bloody revolt. And just because I don't think I've mentioned, Ken is steadily becoming one of my favorite funny men on the show. He's pretty quiet, but some of the things he sneaks in gives me the biggest laughs.

    EPISODE 145 — Moon Festival

    I think he's just bored with the lack of direction and zero inspiration. It's been a barren Crayola wasteland of Arby's aftermath for players and listeners alike. If given something to react to that he enjoys, he does perk up.

    I think it was somewhere about... oh yeah... 19!

    EPISODE 145 — Moon Festival

    Goddammit guys, this isn't Nerd Poker!!! What is this Drow witchcraft??? There's actual NPC dialogue, conversations and stuff. A town where not everything wants to murder them. This just goes to prove my point that I tried making months back, Dan needs to be DMing and we can get Blackie Green back in the Adventurer's seat! Perhaps from now on we can just be stuck in this alternate dimension and not have to go back to the other storyline, EVER. I mean, if we don't ever get to revisit Glennishmoore (I say that still holding hope in my heart that perhaps some day that might be a possibility), then I could really care less if we return to primary color land and the weary gripes of even the players pointing out how everything is hostile and their wandering is beyond aimless. Funny thing is, I know that Blaine is fully competent to pull something like this off too, but for some reason isn't bothering. I read the positive comments on this episode before listening and I actually turned it on expecting to be somehow letdown by the reviews because It's been such a tedious listen for the last few months. Much to my chagrin, People weren't wrong in singing such praises. THIS is how it should go from now on. I am positive that with more interaction, storyline and fun, you'll regain a lot of lost listeners and start producing a better experience for everyone involved. Good on ya, Dan! I knew you had it in you. Now, one other change I might suggest, find a replacement for Steve. Someone who can dedicate the time for a full time, not-so-interrupted character. I still want Steve to be a part of it, so I would propose that he play a part not unlike Stargoyle, Dirty Randy, The Great Gazoo, or Uncle Arthur. That way with his revolving door schedule, he can still come in and zing a few amazing lines but without disrupting the overall flow of the show. Either way, the special guests are always fun and in their own way freshen things up a bit in this musty basement that is Nerd Poker. Any chance of getting more ladies in to play? I miss Sara's way voice of reason and compassion that really came in handy occasionally. Enough of my ecstatic blathering except to say "MORE MORE MORE OF THIS PLEASE!!!"

    EPISODE 143 — F#$%ing Bird Cops

    To my dearest Dan, I am somewhat in agreement with Shampoodler. I too have noticed that you are very quick to jump on people for constructive criticisms. Not everyone is trying to insult you by voicing that they want a little different direction in this podcast. I’m sure many, me included, have a great love and gratitude for what you guys have put together for us for years now and are only trying to point out that with minimal tweaks it could be so much more than it is and appeal to a much broader audience. Dan, sometimes your vehement comments come so sharply and dismissively, that I don’t think you get the care and concerned nature with which these comments on Nerd Poker are intended. I appreciate how much effort you guys take to put together an entertaining podcast week after week. Yes, there is definitely a difference between Sark and Blaine, but it’s been almost a year (or more than a year?- I am temporally challenged) since Sark’s departure. I’ve been listening since way before then, and I don’t think the difference is that people are just still expecting Sark’s style. I think the situation is we listeners just want a little more NPC interaction and dialogue. Perhaps, even, a clear goal for the near future for these NPCs to obtain. Since being chased from the flaming tavern in one of the early Blaine DMed episodes, there has been pretty much nil interaction that wasn’t mindless grunting, a few broken (Common as a Second Language) aggressive exclamations almost guaranteed to end up in senseless aggression toward the PCs. Yes, there is still “Role Playing” going on in these adventures, especially amongst the PC cast. But face it, you guys have been wandering an eternity from colored patch of land to colored patch of land, all hostile in almost every regard. There is seemingly no end to it. Every time you guys make some headway one direction or another, it is thrown asunder thus again leading to more semi-directionless wandering. Just the slightest momentum toward a MacGuffin or some semblance of any story aside from let’s go from here to there to here to there trying to get away from everything that is homicidally lurking in the shadows to gank you guys. And it’s not that I don’t like some of what Blaine’s doing, but it just feels so hollow and pointless without something more than this aimless traveling and constant unprovoked aggression from Flora and Fauna alike. Please don’t misinterpret this as bitching. I LOVE this podcast still. You guys are so funny that it more than makes up for a lack of abiding by rules, or multifaceted tangents that get way off track. While I was sad to see Sarah, Gerry and Sark leave, I think you and Steve are awesome supplements. I even got Rick Remender to sign my Player’s Handbook because even your substitute guests are so hilarious to me. I don’t want you to think I’m unappreciative of the entertainment. Yes, it’s free, but I have sent in donation as well as given dough to Brian several times when he’s been in the Portland area. I don’t expect a whole lot for my meager contributions, and in no way do I feel “owed” anything by you guys, but I think the entire fan base and donation pool would benefit greatly from a more cohesive direction and robust NPC interaction. People are begging for it repeatedly on this forum as well as on other blogs, etc. I don’t support pandering or conforming to the demands of fanboys or fangirls (of which I definitely qualify, but listen to me – dammit!!!), but listening and accepting some constructive criticisms and trying to build on an already good thing. I was saddened by that plea for donor support last week, as I don’t want this, my favorite podcast of all time to end when there are little things that can be done to tune it up and get it swinging harder than that dude in the wheelchair Blaine’s always talkin’ ‘bout.
