  1. This was a great episode. I really like how the arch of the Skeletons worked out and now they seem to be getting a direction. Things work out for the heroes that is why they are together. Aren't you going to feed your Roc the Bulette and Bugbears though. He could feed those to his little ones. Houg, you gotta start throwing out some illusions. I'm looking forward to great things out of you when you level up but you could have avoided this conflict if you had wanted to by scaring the monsters off.

  2. Nerd Poker Drinking Game.


    Take a shot whenever:

    Blackee Green mentions his charisma

    Mildred Maxton pleads for rational behaviour

    Bartho Shett breathes fire

    Amarth Amon kills an innocent

    Gerry dies

    Sark does a character's voice or draws a penis

    Anyone botches or criticals

  3. Yes Dcsein I think you are right. The 4th Edition rule book stays that Before the first round of combat, you roll initiative. It doesn't say that you have to roll initiative everytime. I really did enjoy, though perhaps sadistically, all the botched rolls this time. I think that if you take out the surpurfluous initive roles you will have the right balance.


    I found a really great blog with ideas on initative and how to perserve the role playing narative.

  4. With the party imbalance of 2 fighers, a barbarian and a warlock I think Gerry should returns as an Amphibious Aquatic Halfling in the class of either Wilderness Rogue or Storm Wizard.


    I think you might run into somelike that in a world like this.






    Ell Ryan's spirit would probably land in a Druidic Avenger though, as long as they can have a spirit bear.

  5. I like the finality off Ell Ryan's demise. People die for stupid reason everyday and I think the looming specter of death means that everybody has more to lose, more skin in the game. High drama. I do think that it would be interesting for Gerry and Sark to roll up his new character in a mini-episode.

  6. I love guests. I think that it really helps build a sense of community with in the podcast. There are a lot of smart interesting people that listen to this share and I am interesed in the knowledge that they can share with all of us. I think you should have experts in to discuss the topics in the introduction planet exploration, icthyology. Maybe the topics that you can share amongst yourselves are the ones that we all experience isolation, community, love and loss.

  7. This podcast really resonated with me. I listened to the podcast on my run today. I really allowed me to reflect on my own self-esteem and how I could strenthen it. Now I'm listening to it with my wife and I have shared it on facebook. I really think that David, Kyle and Tig should all sing the VIP song as well. It would be good for you. It would be good for everybody.

  8. Actually quite political.

    Makes sense considering the poem was used to define Libertad.

    The hyper-sexualiized imagery you use to describe freedom is quite powerful.


    Just to clear up some of the finer historical references Kyle alludes to.

    Sweet Egypt's tears is clearly a reference of the Exodus of the Jewish people.


    Betera was the tribal seat of power of Virathus of the Lusitanain people.

    His tribe of central east Iberian peninsula were able to defeat the might of the invading Roman Empire in The War of Fire. The Roman Senate accepted his people as equals in 149 BC and they weren't enslaved but they were still incorporated into the Empire.

    Were they still really free?


    Some people in Quebec however have been trying to petition Canada for independence for years.


    Tutaza was the site of the Battle of Boyaca in 1819. Bolivar had already defeated the forces of the Spanish Empire in the Vargas Swamp (Rock) Battle and here they landed the knock out punch that brought Colombia independence.


    Is the dog in us? Do we have the hunger for freedom or are we just going to site back and let the Empire win?




    Just to let you know I am a big fan and have been listening since the start. Great work.

    I live in Trier, Germany possibly the oldest city in Europe. The third nipple of civilization.

    Listening to your pseudo-intellectual conversations remind me of the conversations I would have with my pseudo-intellectual friends back in Portland. Thank you.


    Please do a podcast on Cryptozoology. You could ask El Chupacabra to be your guest.

    I am sure he would get along with Spanish Riddle Guy.

  9. So this is my attempt at the dictation and translation of The Dog Is Not In Us.


    El Perro no está en nosotros!


    Inocente zapatos.

    El porta ni la puerta.

    Batatos Egipto parte mi puse bravata.

    Pero titas mi Cielo autobus.


    Y todos se carta pitos.

    Y la pe té cartapacio o bregadó de Bétera elegantos.

    Me brute enfrente quebe a cartos sin que to.

    No se te nosotros abeja.

    Libertaria y libre encantos lamentas se Tutazá a ti.


    El perro no está en nosotros!

    La puerta. La cuca de bragadura.


    The Dog Is Not In Us.


    Innocent shoes.

    The gate keeper or the gate.

    I got my part of sweet Egypt's tears.

    But breasts are my sky bus.


    And we all whistle letters.

    And sip tea in Parliament

    While Bétera struggled.

    A blot or elegance.


    I confront the brute Quebecers with letters sent to no one.

    We will not be bees.

    Libertarian and free in Tutazá.

    Her charms make you sorry.


    The dog is not in us.

    The barrier to the crotch of your pussy.
