Misdirected Mark Podcast Episode #173 Teaser – Planning

iIPNV9aqUYrGsHey Folks. On our next episode we cover planning in RPGs in the workshop. As I love to define terms here’s the definition of plan:



: a set of actions that have been thought of as a way to do or achieve something
: something that a person intends to do
: a detailed agreement for telephone service, medical care, insurance, etc.


Don’t worry, I’m pretty sure out discussion will cover the first of those definitions but I wonder what kind of insurance plan I can get as an adventurer.

Anyways the rest of the show with have the Extra Dimensional Social Media Depository and a Game Spotlight on Laser’s and Feelings which you can get for free over at OneSevenDesign.com

Hope to see you online on Tuesday evening at 8:45 for the live recording on our website in the chat room where we stream the show.

TKV Team Podcast 46 | “Too Hot in Herre”

TKVTeam_Logo2015Karol and Tim do everything possible to avoid talking about the Konami-shaped elephant in the room that is the release of the new Metal Gear, so we gripe about the heat and hit up some unexpected news of a new Pikmin. We also play catch-up on recent playtime with games new and old. Tim bites his tongue so he won’t bore the room about a certain racing title hitting in just a scan few days. We make no mention of Marty O’Donnel wrecking house in the legal sense in his case against Bungie, but that’s also a thing that happened. Happy Tuesday.

MMP#171 – With a Little Help From My Friends

Hey Folks. This time a few song lyrics.iIPNV9aqUYrGs

What would you do if I played out of turn
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your dice and I’ll roll a d10
And I’ll try not to crit too badly

I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I got a die with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

If you didn’t figure it out we’re talking about teamwork in games.

TKV Team Podcast | “Crossy Roads, Take Me Home”

TKVTeam_Logo2015This week prompted by some reactions to early word on MGS V The Phantom Pain, Karol and Tim share some points on value propositions in  games, and how during the “Golden Age” of the arcade, game makers were predatory as heck. Karol and Tim both had some heavy play-time this past week, and bounce back and forth on the details.

Namco does something right and hires the minds behind Crossy Roads to make a modern Pac-Man, and everything about it is amazing. Capcom actually release a videogame, but it ends up just being six of their old ones. Hopefully you like “classic” sidescrollers.

ToM 001 Threats of Mirkwood Vidcast Begins

Because of the generous contributions of the Threats From Gallifrey/Threat Detected Podcast Patreon, we have a brand new vidcast of AP of The Darkening of Mirkwood Campaign for The One Ring RPG.

A huge shout out to Mike Bowman, George Cline and Mike Slawienski for making this possible. There are still three seats available at this gaming table, which will meet online monthly. Until more Patreon supporters are added to the campaign, George and Mike’s kids will fill out the table and join the Company of the Whiskey Drinking Bear.

An editing note… the show ends abruptly after a background Windows update knocked me out of Google Hangouts, and I had to eventually reload my computer, ending the recording. Only a few minutes of content was lost, but we’ll recap it next time, September 12, 2015.

Also, I don’t know how audible the background music and ambiance sounds are, but I’m using music from the Brobdingnagian Bards CD Memories of Middle Earth.

Enjoy the magic that is the One Ring at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQbS_MFmbDk
