Episode 18 Dresden Files Part 1

The Dresden Files RPG uses the FATE system as the engine to run RPGs in the universe of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files. This is a world that is much like the Earth today, except werewolves, demons, vampires, zombies, faeries, sprites, and magic actually exist along with all the modern-day conveniences to which we have become accustomed.

In this RPG, the game master works with the players to build the city they adventure in, in a cooperative exercise which lends itself to intertwined stories and motives. Rather than focus on attributes, the character sheets for this game include not only skills and equipment, but a type of descriptor called an ‘Aspect’ (a short phrase or word, such as “quiet as a mouse”, or “quick to anger”) that is used to motivate the game and move the story along.

DD1 Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition – Dawn of Worlds Part 1

This is the first episode of our extended campaign for D&D 5th edition. In this episode we play Dawn of Worlds to create the world in which our campaign will be based. In this episode we create the physical geography and climate of the world. This episode is probably only for the hardcore gamer as it is a bit dry.

In episode 2 we will begin adding races, cities and other aspects. Episode 2 will be a little more interactive and may be a better place to start listening if your aren’t into the real nuts and bolts of creating a world.

You have been warned!

Episode 17 Everyone is John Part 2

In the continuation of our Everyone is John game the insanity escalates! More mayhem and craziness take over the streets of the Music City.

Drag racing in stolen police cars, armed robbery and why does John keep going back to the convent? This episode of Rollin Nerdy is definitely NSFW. Listener discretion is advised.

Episode 10 Numenera Part 2

In the second half of our look at Numenera we get down to the actual play. The group meets along the wandering walk and encounters strangeness Numenera style. Why do these people pile jaw bones around the entrances to their homes? Who is Slaytongue and why are the people so afraid of him/it?

Do the Rollin Nerds like Numenera? You’ll want to listen to the review for this one!

Episode 9 Numenera Part One

In this episode of Rollin Nerdy, the nerds check out Numenera from Monte Cook games.

Set in a far, far distant future, the Numenera RPG puts a new spin on traditional fantasy, creating something unique to reinvigorate the imagination of gamers everywhere. Player characters explore a world of mystery and danger to find leftover artifacts of the past: bits of nanotechnology, the datasphere threaded among still-orbiting satellites, bio-engineered creatures, and myriad strange and wondrous devices that defy understanding. Numenera is about discovering the wonders of the worlds that came before, not for their own sake, but as the means to improve the present and build a future.
