Questions for Sark

Recommended Posts

Holy cow! The guy on the right sounds totally like Sark! Too bad he doesn't look anything like I imagine having had only heard him on this podcast.

Hey Sark,

 

I was just curious if you or this group of players have felt hindered in any way by knowing everything is being recorded and sent out into the world? Have you noticed any change in play styles or does everyone feel fairly comfortable? I can imagine taking something as intimate as gathering around a table to "face to face" game could easily be interrupted when you throw a bunch of microphones and equipment into the mix. Or possibly you're all just natural D&D pornstars?

 

Love the podcast and really dig your DM style! Thanks!

Not directly for Sark but a question for the cast/crew;

Why does a podcast that has a web creation/hosting service as a sponser NOT have a website?!

Outside of Amarth whipping it out in front of Bart, what's the most romantic thing you've seen two players engage in?

Would it be possible ad a character with multiple personality disorder as a way to bring guests on the show? Some generic cursed barbarian? And when you didn't have guests you could just play him as an npc.

 

I hope they do something like this. A pet warforged robot played by Sark until a guest possesses the circuit boards for a few episodes and causes a personality malfunction.

 

Ok, I just like robots.

These are awesome ideas. A warforged would be cool.

Sark,

Maybe I missed it somewhere, but I would love to see your botch chart...so I can use it as well. Any chance of you sharing that?

Just wondering why you guys chose to start 4e if you are all more familiar with 2e?

 

Just curious I guess. Seemed like as good a time as any. Plus, the books smelled sooo nice!

Sark, wondering what your some of your all time favorite video game RPGs are? I liked Skyrim (when it wasn't crashing my xbox) but I still go old school turn-based every now and then with a little Fallout 2 or even Bard's Tale. MMO's have kind of sucked ass since they all went themepark WoW style in my nerd opinion. SWG ruled.

 

Genres get a little blurry these days but Ultima IV, Final Fantasy II (US), Xenogears, WoW, Fallout 3, Mass Effect 2, Skyrim. I pass over a lot of good RPG's because there's no time, but I really enjoy(ed) these.

Mr. Sark, you DM like you play Sniper Elite V2......Heroic. ;) I think your DM style makes the 4e "Skills" very relevant. You should get that sh*t out! Things like Perception, Insight, Bluff, etc.

 

Thanks, I love that game. And we'll work the skills in more often!

Sark, I know you guys don't have room for a battle map, but you could use a room tile from a box of Dungeon Tiles for combat. You can get a box from amazon for like 10 gold pieces.

 

We actually discussed this option after reading your post but the table is beyond cluttered and I think the tiles would get jostled. We're planning on getting a card table for my ancient wet-erase grids (or possibly the tiles :) that'll sit down at the end by me, and then everyone can crane their necks to refer to it if needed.

Can you upload some of the phallic drawings you do of structures and stuff?

 

I say I'm going to polish some of these dick (polish dick lol) (Polish dick lolx2) drawings up every weekend. It being Friday night, yeah, I'll do it tomorrow! :) Seriously though, soon.

Have any of the other players been on this forum & seen the pictures people have drawn?

 

We surf the fan art thread before we play pretty much every time! We're blown away. Some real talented artists in there drawing some real silly stuff :) Not sure if any of the party posts, if they're anonymous, or they're just lurking. I'll ask 'em.

yeah honestly I was never quite sure whiched edition they (HT) ran I just kinda guessed it was 4e

he is still more dramatic with story telling though, but of course im sure thats all a part of being more comfortable with the rules, or the fact hes trying to hold together a weak show with a coupel drunk slobs haha

enough about other podcasts

yeah im sure once Sark & crew get to the point they dont need to look up a rule every few mins he will really shine through

 

not that im knocking him as it is now

 

I just started listening to Harmontown a few weeks ago so I'm no expert but from what I've heard Spencer is legit! Very classic, cozy vibe to the bits I've gone through. Different DM's emphasize different parts of their games. No right or wrong, just delightfully infinite ways of communicating.

Yes. Yes, no. Porn, mmmmm.

 

Yes, the podcast is an obstacle. Mics, headphones, cables, post-production, dead air, hot studio, no food and all while we don't know what the hell we're doing. BUT, seeing the incredible fan-art, reading speculation on the campaign, not to mention the pressure of the podcast to have regular meetups with the pals all make it worth playing under less-than-ideal circumstances :)

 

Everyone is feeling much more comfortable now than when we started taping these over a year ago.

 

If you can link me to 'natural D&D porn' I'd be in your debt.

Hey Sark, how do I gift an Adventurer's Vault book to NP?

 

Haha you're too kind. I don't think there's an address yet for such things :(

Gerry & Hardwick's characters fought for sexytime with an especially attractive bar maid. Emotions ran hot and hatred grew. Hardwick's character ended up winning her affections. Then she was murdered and they realized how silly they'd been. Really touching stuff.

Haha. This is a really funny idea! Once guests are popping in more regularly I could see this being super fun. I have a few other guest-ideas that hopefully you'll find amusing as well.

 

*love your folder-art.

You haven't missed it! I'll include it in the maps & diagrams homework I've assigned myself.
