Threat Detected Vintage Volume 3

Here’s the next batch of vintage Threat Detected episodes. It includes my first ever running of the Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars system, in a holiday special on Tatooine.
There’s an episode where the spouses of Star Wars gamers compare notes… and I don’t look too good compared to some of the hubbies.
We even go to the latter episodes of First to Strike, as Mount Antas gets stormed… and as Moppo becomes a Jedi Knight. These sessions include my wife Mari, cartographer extraordinaire Christopher West, amazing gamer and artist Ryan Walsh and even Donovan Morningfire.

TKVTeam_Logo2015This week, we bring you the second installment of our E3 2015 coverage, as we talk over major points from the Sony and Microsoft conference announcements.

Next week, look forward to part 3, which will cover EA, Ubisoft, and Nintendo’s slice of gamin’ goodness from Los Angeles.

TKV Team Podcast 33 | “Silent Spring”

TKVTeam_Logo2015This week, Karol and Tim wrangle some news discussion in the lull before E3 2015 at the LA Convention Center.

Steam’s newly implemented refund policies yield a double-edged result for some developers. Tim narrowly avoids breaking an NDA that slips his mind, Mega Man gets a shot in the arm with the help of a new studio, and Neil Druckman didn’t fire anyone this month. Some Porsche news for Forza suggests more mystery to Microsoft’s stage show, and port-forwarding is moon-speak.

#Projectgallifrey Events Strike Kenmore

#projectgallifrey is a project of the Threats From Gallifrey Podcast, challenging gamers to take their favorite game titles, get permission to run them in local churches, coffee shops or comic book stores, put up fliers to market the event and blow people’s minds with how cool these games are.

Always one to lead by example, I have two events of my own.

1. Thursday, June 4th @ 6pm head over to GameStop at Kenmore-Delaware. We’re setting up a table and showing off the amazingly cool Doctor Who Adventures in Time and Space RPG.

What console do you need for this game?

The Doctor shrugs his head sadly at says something with a Scottish accent.

The adventure will be “Doctor Who and the Ice Base of War,” written by yours truly, based on a plot seed generated on the Cubicle 7 Doctor Who RPG website.


Can’t make this event? Have to save the universe again? The Doctor’s returning 6/20 for his very own Free RPG Day. I know, there isn’t any publisher-sold materials being run here. Such is the spirit of #projectgallifrey. Tell it to the Daleks. Play  “Doctor Who and the Ice Base of War” at 2pm at Collectors Inn in Kenmore.

Come in costume and receive bonus Story Points!

Threats From Gallifrey Goes Fight Club


It’s time for some Guerilla Marketing, Tyler Durden style, publicly playing our beloved rpg titles to suck in the populace… changing their lives forever. It’s #ProjectGallifrey.
Time Lord Tayna talks about the Doctor Who Adventures In Time and Space experience. Rob and Tony talk music in gaming sessions. Savage Tim gets all excited about the Sixth Gun.

Talking with Rob and Tim about music, I mentioned the amazing Post Modern Jukebox that does modern songs with a vintage sound.
Rob mentioned the youtube playlist for the Call of Cthulhu module “Dead Man’s Stomp.


We started the show playing “Those Characters Died” from Marc Gunn’s incredible Scifi Drinking Songs. Check out Marc’s website.
