Panda’s Talking Games – 48: Gender

Show us how you play a character of a different gender? Phil and Senda have an awkward conversation about trying to filter societal gender constructs in to some kind of advice for playing NPCs of a different gender than your own.

This was an extremely difficult topic for us to tackle. We’re pretty sure there are people out there who could do this topic with more poise and grace than we did. Inevitably in any discussion of gender we have to acknowledge that gender is a construct of our society, and so anything we throw out is an implant of how we currently live. With that in mind we attempted to be as careful as possible with this topic since it’s very delicate. If you have things to add or the perspective of another gender identity to throw at us in terms of portraying in game, you know where to find us: @pandastalkgames on twitter or panda(at)misdirectedmark.com. Finally, the moral of the story is and always will be: play characters, not genders. 

We also learned that Phil speaks hairball.

Panda’s Talking Games – 47: Thoughts on Gaming with your Significant Other

Show us how you handle gaming with your significant other! What if they’ve never played a game before, but want to try? What if they’re an old hand? What if Phil gets really excited about the Scholastic book fair and we end up talking about ice cream?

Super sorry to jystdave and everyone out there who actually knows the shanty; listening back I realized I did the chorus utterly wrong. Someday I’ll have to do it as a fully produced song and fix it, just to make it up to you. Until that day…..well, just know that I was actually going to re-record it but I ran out of time.

FofOSR #1 – Eric the Stormlord

Welcome to episode one of Hobbs & Friends of the OSR. This is a show about the Old School Renaissance where Jason “Hobbs” Hobbs has one of his friends on to chat about the OSR. Often these friends are publishers of OSR material.

The show currently has four segments. First we must introduce Hobbs’ friend. Second they chat about games they’ve been playing together or playing in general. They’ve cover thoughts on the game, the style or mechanics of the game, and their favorite moments of the game. It’s a personal reflection and borders a bit on a review without being quite that formal. Third they spotlight an OSR product. Last they chat about something happening in the OSR, be it another product, some bit of news, an article someone wrote, or other miscellany.

On the inaugural episode Hobbs is joined by Eric “Stormlord” Hoffman of Stormlord Publishing and they talk USR, Treasure Vaults of Zadabad, and a few other things. Enjoy the show and let Jason know how we’re doing in the comments below or email us at  hobbsnfriends@misdirectedmark.com.
