Odder Worlds - Let the Experiments Begin

April 20, 2018

Slight delay on Night's Black Agents, but in the meantime we've been working on a new idea behind the scenes.  Part or Odder Worlds is forcing games to handle situations they weren't written for.  We're going to take that one step further.   So in this episode we are going to announce what we've been up to as well as let you see some of our brainstorming on the idea.  The working title is Odder Worlds Experiments. 

Panel: David Herman, Jarod Cerf

Games:

No Country for Old Kobolds by Steve Wallace Art

MASKS by Magpie Games

World Wide Wrestling by NDPDesign

Monster of the Week by Evil Hat Productions

The Geekly Oddcast 27 - Time to Pitch Prequels Nobody Wants

April 13, 2018

Hollywood has done it to death, reboots and sequels and even prequels. Going back to George Lucas and his prequels, now X-Men has three prequels. Monsters Inc has a prequel, even a New Hope has a Prequel ot itself. Albeit the last two were fantastic, it doesn't change the situation. Prequels are becoming the new reboots. So we thought let's pitch the prequels that no one would ever want. Please give it a listen and let us know. This was a fun episode to record and we hope you enjoy!

The Geekly Oddcast 26 - A Timely Wrinkle

March 30, 2018

Our experiments with tessering went wrong and we are a day late with this episode, but thats okay because in it are the secrets to effortless travel between the stars.  That or our thoughts on how we would approach making this classic story if we were the ones writing and directing it.  Yes, it's definitely that second one.

Odder Worlds - Night’s Black Agents - Chargen

March 23, 2018

Before it will end in aliens and intrigue it will start out as just an average day tracking down an Iranian Agent in an Arizona observatory.  But before even that we need to know who is doing the tracking.  Three agents are on their way and the only thing they have in common is they've all survived encounters with the unexplained.  Find out who they are now.  This is character generation for Night's Black Agents.

The Geekly Oddcast 25 - Game Runner (Do GM’s Dream of Eclectic Sheep)

March 15, 2018

It's RPG week on the Geekly Oddcast, it's RPG time.  Running a game can often seem overwhelming, so we got a couple of our game masters from the Odder Worlds side of the show to talk about how to run a game without driving yourself insane.  It's a mix of advice for first time GMs and hard learned lessons.  If at any time it seems like our panel might be untrustworthy or sadistic, try not to worry about it.  It will all be fine.

Odder Worlds - Variations on a Theme 1

February 23, 2018

This week on Odder Worlds, we are doing something different.  We're going to break a few games and see what makes them tick.  See, like it or not, the rules of RPGs have an effect on the game and we're goin to take a closer look at how.  So we are going to run the same scene (well... the same beats anyways) in four different systems and see what happens.

Basically, this week on Odder Worlds, we are doing the same thing we always do, only moreso.
