For the week ending November 23, 2018.

Tune in to hear what you’re missing!

What to Listen to this Weekend

1 The Glass Cannon Podcast

The Glass Cannon Podcast

What is the Glass Cannon Podcast? Well, in the spirit of old school Dungeons and Dragons, a collection of five super-nerds (Joe O’Brien, Grant Berger, Matthew Capodicasa, Skid Maher, and Game Master Troy Lavallee) emerge blinking from their parents’ basements to engage in an actual play campaign of Paizo’s epic Pathfinder adventure path, Giantslayer!

 

The party falls victim to the death throes of the first slain frost worm, while another worm and even greater horrors await them nearby.

 

Here’s the link: Episode 182: Trilling Them Softly Part 3: License to Trill.

2 Androids and Aliens

Androids and Aliens

The aforementioned GCP crew take to the stars in an all new campaign in Paizo’s newest system: Starfinder. As a direct result of the Patreon support for Glass Cannon, they’re working through the Dead Suns AP in an all new podcast, and they’ve brought along a new cast member, Ellinor Dilorenzo!

This week’s synopsis:

The crew pleads their case to the Qabarat Port Authority in an attempt to gain access to the gate to Ukulam.

 

Tune in to Episode 33: 10 Things I Gate About You.

3 Fortunes Untold

Fortunes Untold

Fortunes Untold is a show where a group of gamers get together and review different tabletop RPGs. But they don’t just tell you about the games, they show you how they play. The crew tries out the rules, test drives the setting, and at the end of the adventure they hand out Experience Points and see if the system levels up.

They’ve just started their actual play and review of Call of Cthulhu from Chaosium, and plan to play, review, and compare all of its various spin offs afterwards!

The Jazz Age! Prohibition! Squamous Horrors! The Fortunes Untold crew are headed back to 1925 to review Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu (7th edition)!  So put down that copy of the Necronomicon and tune your RCA Westinghouse to WHP-28 for this week’s episode: “The Darkness Beneath the Hill”.

 

Here it is: Episode 8!

 

4 Titans of All-Terra

Titans of All-Terra

The Titans of All’Terra is a podcast brought to you by Joshua Lorimer of Sneak Attack! fame.  This DnD 5e actual play podcast is brand spanking new, so get in on the ground floor now!  It is also 100% family friendly, so round up the kids and make this a family event.

Here’s this week’s synopsis!

Relnor, Winnie, Dalfin, and Joan fight for their lives as they explore the magical and mysterious ancient ruins.  The dice will fly in this combat and lore heavy episode!

5 Find the Path Podcast

Find the Path Podcast

We’ve written before about our love for Find the Path, so I’ll point you there.  But the tl;dr version is that it is a live play show that is playing through the Mummy’s Mask Adventure Path for the Pathfinder RPG from Paizo. If you aren’t familiar with Mummy’s Mask, think ancient Egypt and you have the general vibe!

This week they dropped Episode 32: The One With The Auction.  Here’s the synopsis:

Welcome Pathfinders! The auction has finally arrived and our four heroes get ready for what may be their greatest challenge yet… making small talk with rich buyers! However as the party tries to make a little extra gold off of their last lottery site a new threat is rising against Wati…

Enjoy the episode here, and tell them NoE sent you!

Happy listening!
