Panda’s Talking Games – 39: Acadecon LIVE

pandas_talking_games_logo_-_oct_2016-200xHey pandas! So last week was Thanksgiving here in the US, and while we thought we had everything planned out so that we would still be on schedule, life came up the only night we could record before holiday travel started. Since we wouldn’t want to miss a week, here is the audio of the live show we did at Acadecon, in panda suits! Patreons already have access to the video to see this, but we’ll be releasing the video to the public also sometime this month. We did a question round up on some things that had been hanging around that we didn’t think we could fill a whole show with, messed up a lot, and this my friends…this is what it sounds like before I put all that stuff at the end.

Enjoy!

I, your humble host Chris, has “recruited” fellow gnomes Ang & Avery to join me on this episode. Hopefully we avoid the pot.

Today we’re talking about Gaming as Imaginative Play by Avery Liell-kok. Check out the original by clicking on the link.

Panda’s Talking Games 37: Leveling Up Mid Session

pandas_talking_games_logo_-_oct_2016-200xSenda and Phil show us how they handle leveling up characters mid session! It’s not something we’ve done a lot but we tackle it anyway. Why would you plan to level up in the middle of a game session? If you’re going to, what are the best ways to do it without interrupting the flow of the game itself? In more news, I can’t remember the words to the song, we sing a couple extras, and we learn Phil’s college nick name.
