To celebrate the release of 6th Edition, we got together with the cast of our sister podcast Preferred Enemies and our friend Tim (AKA That Damn Punk) to discuss the new rules set. 8 wargaming geeks, 4 copies of the rulebook, 2 podcasts, 1 new edition – it all adds up to a lot of discussion and opinions. Do we like the new rules and the changes they’re bringing to the game? Listen and find out! This one clocks in at around 2 hours.

(We’re also rockin’ our real names for this one, could that be a portent of things to come?)

(Yes, it is.)

On this week’s exciting episode of UnderDiscussion WDR and I are joined by Hooligan, Slacker, Nockergeek, Hida Man, and new guest Jolly Rodgers for a discussion of the d20 system. What d20 is (and what it isn’t), Pathfinder (long time listeners will of course be shocked at that), D&D through the ages (Basic, Advanced, 4e, Gamma World), and the various offshoot games (like Mutants & Masterminds). We also learn that I (8one6) apparently cannot pronounce granularity.

 

This one clocks in at one hour and forty-three minutes.

Ladies and gentleman, I am proud to present the UnderDiscussion One Year Anniversary episode! I want to thank you all for your support and for listening to us this past year. When I suggested to WDR that we should do a podcast he thought I was crazy and that no one would ever listen to us. It’s a year later, we have 38 episodes released, we’ve have reviews and interviews and last month we had our first episode to go over a thousand unique downloads! So if we’re crazy, then we’re crazy like a fox!

This week Nockergeek, Slacker, and Hooligan join us with new guests Hida Man and Dennis to discuss a bit about the tabletop wargame Warhammer 40k. We also announce our IronDie giveaway and a spinoff podcast!

“What’s that?” you say, “What are these ‘IronDie’ you are referring to?” IronDie are solid metal dice made in Italy and we’re giving away a base set of the nine different shapes! What to learn the details? Then listen to this week’s episode!

IronDie, made in Italy, won by you!

The contest will run through April 29th 2011 (we plan to do the hat draw and the winner announcement recording on April 30th.) The winner will be announced on the May 2nd episode of UnderDiscussion.

We are also announcing Preferred Enemies, a Warhammer 40k podcast hosted by the Undergopher’s own Nockergeek, Slacker & Dennis! They recorded their first episode this week. Head over, give it a listen, and let them know what you think!

This week we’ve braved the darkest reaches of the nether to bring you this discussion of monsters in RPGs. Joining us this week are Kat, Hooligan, Sentinel, Nockergeek and the Woodler. Also, this is one of the nosier episodes. We’re usually much less squeaky than this. To make up for it there are two bonus clips for this episode. Check out out facebook page to hear the second one.

All right, this week’s episode of UnderDiscussion is about one of my favorite games I’ve ever GM’ed: Ghostbusters London. Gather ’round and listen as WDR, Nockergeek, That Damn Punk and new guest Kbrighton wax nostalgic about the amazing adventures in the paranormal that I put them through. This episode has such classic lines as “ghost sheep” and “You take Dr. Zaius, I’m goin’ after Hitler!”

Here’s a link to Nockergeek’s blog, That Damn Punk’s blog, and Kbrighton’s twitter feed.

This week Nockergeek and That Damn Punk join us to discuss the cyberpunk RPG Shadowrun. We cover the history of the game both in setting and out as well as the influences on the game and even share a few of our favorite Shadowrun gaming stories. I even get to mention my favorite weapon from the previous editions of the game: The Laser-Axe!

We mention the good people at Catalyst Games as well as the fine folks over on the Dumpshock forums in this one.
