  1. Nerd Poker is never not funny. Let me be clear about that. There is not one person that hasn't been awesome. Dick jokes, pranking on the mics, it's all great, but you have a point. When Hug (née ken) wanted to use the Ring Of Wishing just to get back to the beginning because he was so tired of fighting mute giants all the time; it was obvious that this giant scenario wasn't really going anywhere. And Dan's Moon Festival was a great change/break from the 'Just Kill All Giants' routine.

     

    I think you are right about Blaine. I am not knocking him, he's an awesome entertainer and makes me laugh the most with his references. But now I have to admit he plays better as a character. Sorry, I do not want to start a war, no butt hurt intended. This podcast is a constant on my ipod and I really want it to continue.

  2. Great episode, but I only give it 7 out of 10 for the lack of Mildred and Sir Richard. I realise they have lives (and Sir Dick is dead), but it's only half the fun without them. Would it be possible to have a 'guest' come in role play a temporary part while a player or two is out? Now I'm not knocking anyone's ability to role play for someone while they're out, it's just a suggestion.


  3. Yeah, Mildred was with them the whole time. It would have been interesting to see what she thought they should do first, I know I was thinking "get your gear back before you loot the room! You need to be able to fight off the rest of the rat-men!"

     

    It's a shame that some of those dwarf-rats had to die in such a gruesome way… Maybe if Damien and the gang went back to warn them that the curse would be broken, instead of waiting to watch Gor die… but I guess that ship has sailed. Well, if you're gonna make an omelette…

    I can't help but think that the rat phamacist must have known this might happen. Damien did offer to try to break the curse while explaining that he didn't know when it (if) it would work. And the disscussion with the same pharmacist about the plan to kill the dirty rat was about the lifting of the curse when Gor died.


  4. Saaaaarrrkkkkk: http://wtaq.com/news...he-fuel-system/

     

    UNDATED (WSAU) -- Mazda is recalling around 42,000 cars because of spider problems.

    It turns out the fuel system of the Mazda 6 can attract a species of spider called the yellow sac spider. Those spiders then weave webs inside of the fuel line which can cause excessive pressure in the tank, leading to fuel leaks and possibly fires.

    The recall involves a group of cars produced in Michigan in 2010 through 2012 with 2.5-liter engines.

    This is not the first time Mazda has had to recall cars over spider issues. They had to issue a recall in 2011 for the same problem when spiders started making homes inside of fuel systems.

    Mazda owners will get a software update for their cars that will prevent excessive pressure

    also, i can't remember, did something happen to Wiggy the wolf kind? did i miss something or did he just sorta disappear in the tunnels?

    I think was sent to report the presence of the rat people in the tunnel to the king, but right after he was sent there was a tunnel collapse and it was unknown wether he made it of was caught in the deliberate collapse.

    "Old-school Dungeons & Dragons fans are mourning the death of David Trampier, a once-famed fantasy artist who contributed to the game’s original allure—only to mysteriously disappear from the public eye in the 1980s.

    Trampier, 59, died on March 24 at a nursing and rehab facility in Carbondale, Illinois. Scott Thorne, owner of Carbondale gaming store Castle Perilous, had been in touch with the elusive Trampier before his death and wrote in a blog post that the artist was recently diagnosed with cancer and suffered a stroke.

    In the late 1970s, Trampier’s paintings and drawings peppered the manuals and modules for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, the first edition of the groundbreaking role-playing game. He also authored Wormy, a long-running comic strip in the D&D magazine Dragon, which joked about RPGs from the monsters’ point of view."Players-Handbook-Advanced-Dungeons-and-Dragons-1st-release-Dustrial-Boston-1-530x721.jpg

  7. Rats can't cast Remove Curse or shoot gouts of flame from their mouths, either.

     

    Also, they all made their saving throws, so none of them DID vomit.

     

    If you're wondering how he eats and breathes and other science facts,

    Just repeat to yourself "It's just a show. I should really just relax."

    NO! No---It's REAL!


  8. This got me too, I had to explain to a co-worker that the funny man on the podcast was making puke noises. They did not find it amusing and I continued to laugh even when the podcast was over. I think I'm going to laugh next time I puke.

     

    Rolling against puking... Good show. I actually don't mind hearing about leveling up. It's part of the D&D process and you get to hear the reasons why characters get/choose different abilities. Still miss Mildred and Sir Dick.


  9. In Billy Joel News, Or 'Things That Should Not Be'.

     

    NEW YORK (AP) — In a rare and unusual mix of rock legends, AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson made a surprise appearance at Billy Joel's concert at Madison Square Garden and played the metal band's classic, "You Shook Me All Night Long."

     

    Joel introduced Johnson about halfway through the show Friday night, saying Johnson was part of one of the best bands he'd ever seen live. The packed arena erupted when Joel and his band began playing the rock anthem with Johnson on lead vocals.

     

    The show was part of a series of concerts by Joel at the Garden. He's playing there monthly as an artist-in-residence.

     

    Friday's show included a mix of Joel standards such as "Uptown Girl" and "Big Shot" as well as less-played songs, such as "The Ballad of Billy the Kid."


  10. Nerd Poker...Wow Brian. You went there. It only goes to show that you should never judge a culture by how you lick the cheese on their balls...Or Anus. Aside from missing Mildred and Sir Dick, it still keeps getting

  11. Terrible episode.

     

    Having a deity come along and open the rat cages was a pathetic cop out. Why not just have Bahumet kill the old guy? A good DM would have created a situation where the PCs could have gotten themselves out with a little thought.

    I don't think Sir Dick was/is a deity. Just a poltergeist for a final 'mission' - and it was a good vehicle to see Sir Richard one last time as well as infer (or imply?) that Sir Dick had past on to the other PCs. After all they were ordered out of the room before he passed and may not have 'known' what happened to him. As for just having Bahumet (or Judas or the Water God) whack The Old Guy, well you'd think a god could to do it easily. But why haven't they is a good question. I guess we'll have to wait on the "shitty" DM to tell us.


  12. Not sure it was ever established that SG was a true familiar in a technical sense... that said, I'm not eulogizing anyone until I have confirmation, especially a pretty much off-screen death. Too genre aware.

    It's possible Stargoyle could pull a Sparklette. Which is to say that he may have been blasted to smithereens, but may be able to reform himself with time.


  13. When i heard Sark ask the gang to roll against cheese, I lost it....And when they finally got the cheese and all the rats in the other room were losing it to the smell of a well toasted runny, rindless, cheese (possibly camembert?), I nearly died. Seriously, I wear earbuds at work and everybody stared at me and rolled their eyes. I have already converted two people to Nerd Poker at work, and those who roll their eyes will be next.

     

    That being said, all I could think of after the show was The Monty Python Cheese Shop Sketch:

  14. Too many bad vibes in here. Take it easy guys.

    I'm not hating on anyone. I just find it hilarious that Sark refers to himself as shitty. They've known each other for so long that it's become something of a compliment, albeit backhanded. This is one of the best podcasts out there, and let's face it there is some emotional investments going on with these characters: 'Brian- cries. sobbing, calls wife from car.' It was a bit like the Red Wedding. I can hate Sark for killing off characters, but I can forgive him for it because I love the players and the game.
