Hey Folks. On this episode of the Misdirected Mark Podcast we talk about how to get comfortable running your con games which is some combination of confidence and presentation. We’ll explain ourselves, don’t worry. Also a little comicon trailer talk for the cool stuff that’s coming up.
Hey folks. This episode we’re getting our cybernetics out and entering the matrix to explore the genre of cyberpunk and then talk about some of the gameable parts of it. We also do our normal stuff in the lounge where we hear some bait & switch stories and we go a little Mad in the Geekery as we talk Fury Road before finishing up with Daredevil.
It’s a GM round up this week but first we start off in the lobby responding to your feedback, then we get over to the Workshop to discuss different types of GM’s, and finish up in the Geekery to talk about all the juicy digital downloads this past week. There maybe a Daredevil discussion.
Hey Folks. This week we’re coming to you with 100% less clicks, trust me. We’re also checking out what we get from the Extradimentional Social Media Depository before we head to the workshop to talk about trust. After we see Vera in the Geekery to geek out.
Hello Folks. Chris here and we’ve got a good one for you today. The Prophet of Carter Morrison is here to tell you all about The Strange. Who’s the prophet you ask? Why it’s Bruce Cordell and think the interview is quiet good. We also have the return of the Marks favorite ass chapper as Tony returns for the second You Know What Really Chaps My Ass segment. Mark is also absent as he chases down the Evil Hat of Fred Hicks. Man is that Hat Evil. Enjoy.
Hello Friends. This week we’re at the Geekery for Pateron episode #3, Star Wars and Shakespeare night. Tangent Twin Dave, Tim, Jesse, and I read select passages from the book Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope. I hope you enjoy and let us know what you thought of this one.
Hello Friends. This week we have David Schwartz with us from Universal Gaming to talk about all the things he has planned for his company in the coming year and beyond and I chat with Brian Cooper about Quest Kick, a very nifty sounding web based app to use at the game table. I hope you enjoy.
