  Sun. 5/5/13 3:02am map:

or hear them. however it's gonna happen
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:03am Matt from Springfield:

Me too map! I'm going to get some Mountain Dew!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:04am Congolia:

I should have had some Dew. I mixed a Zombie. Does D&D have zombies? I was more of a Star Frontiers guy.

Dungeons & Dragons & Zombies is a game waiting to happen.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:07am Matt from Springfield:

(Toldja I'd probably make the beginning of this one! :)
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:07am Chris M.:

hey everybody! we're getting our maps out and our dice. this is going to be great. NY peeps please check out the 20 Sided Store in Brooklyn twentysidedstore.com
Avatar    Sun. 5/5/13 3:07am KP:

That's def, Jack Bruce, but what ?
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:08am Sean D. Daily:

So, Chris, you gonna attack the darkness?
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:09am Matt from Springfield:

It seems that before "Community", the D&D comedy track was the most famous work of the Dead Alewives people!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:11am Matt from Springfield:

It's a...g-g-g-g-g...GIRL!!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:12am Matt from Springfield:

As a fellow nerd, I approve of the name "20 Sided Store"!
Avatar    Sun. 5/5/13 3:13am KP:

Matt are you into "Community"? I loved it.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:14am Sean D. Daily:

You mean you play Neverwinter WITHOUT a computer? Mind. BLOWN. ::sarcasm::
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:14am Matt from Springfield:

I still watch it occasionally, though it seems to have peaked after the first 3 seasons. The personnel troubles re: Dan Harmon and Chevy didn't help with that.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:16am Matt from Springfield:

I'll be Althorius, magic swordsmith.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:16am Sean D. Daily:

Well, at least the guy's trying to "protect" Neverwinter instead of "liberate" it. There... there is a difference, right?
Avatar    Sun. 5/5/13 3:17am KP:

Right. i was introduced via an art student on twitter. She still is like biggest fan in world, still is. Has met all of then. Has sat at THE DESK. And does fantastic fan
Avatar    Sun. 5/5/13 3:19am KP:

Oh god, embarrassing. Had wrong station on iTunes. Please forgive.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:19am Matt from Springfield:

@KP: That's awesome! I would still want to sit at their study table.
Though Tom Scharpling has worked with some of those actors before, he might have met them all as well.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:20am Congolia:

Portlastia isn't so funny as funnily accurate
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:22am Matt from Springfield:

@Congolia: Though I liked when Aimee Mann appeared on there, as Gunderin the Elven Minstrel.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:30am Congolia:

This wizard is a pain. Grab a snack.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:34am Matt from Springfield:

Roll off! It's ON!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:35am Congolia:

Ohhhhh typical Creeplord, that coward.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:37am Sean D. Daily:

Wouldn't Wisdom be a better modifier for initiative than Dexterity? I mean, yeah, Dexterity is agility, which COULD imply quickness. However, Wisdom is used for Spot and Listen. That would imply situational awareness and preparedness, which seems a lot more important for initiative than fine motor skills or agility.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:37am Matt from Springfield:

But now your Spider Damage Capability is down by 11 Points - if you don't find a recharge stone later, you'll have wasted your SDC on that little spider, leaving you unprepared for Shelob or any huge spiders you'd need it for.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:38am Sean D. Daily:

It'd also give the more cerebral characters, like wizards and clerics, a chance to go before the arrow sponges and meat walls.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:39am Sean D. Daily:

@Matt from Springfield: SDC? You play Pathfinder?
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:39am Matt from Springfield:

@Sean: I've had friends and acquaints who've role-played, but I myself haven't done RPGs. I'm not sure there are other mods, like Wisdom in this game or not. It would make sense to roll for a variety of mods throughout a game. Shift the focus and player advantages.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:42am Matt from Springfield:

Go AP! Nice exposure of your adopted table!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:43am Sean D. Daily:

@Matt from Springfield: That's actually an interesting idea - using different attribute modifiers depending on the situation. I doubt it'd translate to a tabletop game, though. Too much math on the fly. Now, a computer game, which does all the bookkeeping for you... maybe.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:54am Matt from Springfield:

Stealin' ma ale!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:54am Congolia:

Order some Cold Goose
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:55am Congolia:

The Finest MacGuffin Brand Cold Goose in all ye lands
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 3:56am Matt from Springfield:

What a shady recruiter!

Creeplord: "Yes, my child, let me... REASSURE you, slobber drool slaver."
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:02am Chris M.:

i don't trust Creep Lord one bit
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:03am Congolia:

you shouldn't I sense a trap
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:03am Matt from Springfield:

Creep factor increased by x3...
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:05am Sean D. Daily:

Creeplord has a +10 circumstance bonus to his Making You Feel Uncomfortable and Like You Need a Shower skill checks.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:06am Congolia:

Where is Asst Prod Kirsten? Where hath she be?
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:08am Sean D. Daily:

So you guys are playing for what, two-and-a-half hours? Man, we wouldn't have even left the tavern after 2.5 hours at my Saturday game.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:08am Sean D. Daily:

Is this worth a "dunh dunh DUUUUNNNNNNH"?
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:12am Matt from Springfield:

@Sean: That seems typical--individual "games" lasting months on end, progressing very slowly night-to-night.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:14am kiemzi:

i'm right here in studio neverwinter! you prolly heard me laughing at that weirdo creep lord!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:14am Sean D. Daily:

He is not "Slave Boy," sir. His Christian name is "Butt Boy", and I will have you remember that.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:15am Congolia:

ok. Just checking. This is fun and was a good idea.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:15am Sean D. Daily:

@Matt from Springfield: I've had games go on for YEARS. Granted, we didn't play every week, but still...
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:16am Sean D. Daily:

Or every month, for that matter...
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:18am Matt from Springfield:

@Sean: Know what you mean; Radford U's Role Players Guild had various overlapping games of different types going on, and it seemed they would never end.

Butt Boy, after Neverwinter's legendary wizard-abbot St. Butt de Boi.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:18am Sean D. Daily:

"The dandelions are... regrowing! Do you know what this means?" "Sure do! ALL THE DANDELION GREENS SALAD WE CAN HANDLE! w00t!"
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:19am Matt from Springfield:

Hey kiemzi! I agree, this is a fun (and prob unique) radio idea!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:20am Congolia:

I could never keep it "serious" enough for a real game. I've seen dudes cry when their characters were killed.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:20am Chris M.:

this is the first time this has ever been done on WFMU!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:20am Sean D. Daily:

I'm digging it, too. Interesting to hear how another DM runs her games.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:22am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, I thought this was a first! And if it's a FMU first, it's almost certainly a radio first!

(Ken & Andy might have considered something like for 7SD, but they couldn't possibly get schooled enough on D&D AND play it within their one hour slot).
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:22am Sean D. Daily:

And just like that, the game turns into The Walking Dead. And hey, some of you guys even have crossbows!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:25am Sean D. Daily:

I'm going to be upset when they Chris has to go off the air at 6. I'm really getting into this.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:26am Sean D. Daily:

And why's he allowed to roll two d20's? House rule? Or character ability?
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:26am Sean D. Daily:

And why's he allowed to roll two d20's? House rule? Or character ability?
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:27am Matt from Springfield:

@Congolia: The Radford RPG held some hearings/proceedings on killings of characters. (Though actually, it was to hold the "killer" to account in cases where they believed he killed to get back at the other human player for outside "real world" issues. Strictly prohibited from bringing outside drama into the self-contained worlds).
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:29am Congolia:

I don't know the full scenario (it was 22 years ago), but knowing this guy, he had it coming
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:30am Sean D. Daily:

The zombies are going after Creeplord? GO ZOMBIES!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:31am Matt from Springfield:

Nothin' like a sheet o' flames! From the fingertips to your enemies!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:33am Matt from Springfield:

Good audio on the dice hitting the table.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:34am kiemzi:

wai'minute... is this guy called T-Rexicon?
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:36am Matt from Springfield:

Uggh, typical selfish hoarder!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:37am Matt from Springfield:

The new edition may have changed his name from "Marcbolanion".
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:38am kiemzi:

i love it.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:39am Congolia:

Use the Slider
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:40am kiemzi:

Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:40am kiemzi:

PLAY the slider!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:41am Matt from Springfield:

"Stay tuned for the thrilling conclusion...the game is real, only the radio is imaginary!"
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:41am Congolia:

Speaking of Zombies, don't ever let me make you one. I think i alcohol poisoned myself.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:43am Matt from Springfield:

Is a Zombie the fruit juice and lots of rum and brandy cocktail?
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:44am Congolia:

yeah. I used the Trader Vic's recipe.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:46am Matt from Springfield:

I imagine the bigger danger is people throwing back more than 1 of those, at a party or someplace fun and not keeping track. Only to lose their dinner later.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:46am kiemzi:

Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:47am Matt from Springfield:

Oh FUCKS YEAH!!! "Ride a White Swan"! Thanxamillion, kiemzi!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:48am Congolia:

Bolanaise on the show sammich
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:49am Sean D. Daily:

This may be apropos of nothing, but so far I've starred every single song played on this show. Granted, there weren't a LOT of them, but still...
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:49am Matt from Springfield:

Bolanaise on a Bolagnese show sandwich.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:50am Matt from Springfield:

@Sean: Since the feature was introduced, I consider a good show to have 4+ tracks starred. So glad Chris could oblige! :)
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:51am Congolia:

Quorthon, how goes the Viking Metal biz?
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 4:52am Matt from Springfield:

plot twist!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 5:01am Sean D. Daily:

Phylactery? LICH? Oh HELLS no...
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 5:02am kiemzi:

wait what is phylactery!?!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 5:03am Sean D. Daily:

A phylactery is a magic item owned by a monster called a lich. And a lich is... yeah, they're nasty.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 5:04am kiemzi:

whoa! stuff's gettin' inTENSE!

When people stop being enchanted...and start getting real
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 5:07am Sean D. Daily:

So, wait a minute, you're shoving us out the door with this snot-nosed runt who's going to pull fire down on us from EVERYTHING EVIL WITHIN A HUNDRED MILES, not to mention a LICH... yeah, um, I'd love to help you guys, but... yeah.
