The Adventuring Party
Discussing table-top and related gaming and the Irish gaming scene so you don't have to.

Per:  With the series of episodes examining what's going on in the greater sphere of gaming which brought us interviews with Camarilla organisers and Lorien Trust players as an excuse, Shane, Dave, Dizzy and Liam go on at great length about their action-packed holiday at Berget in Sweden.  More than an airsoft game, more than a LARP, it was a gaming experience more intense and sustained than any we'd had before.  Features:

  • Dizzy's Swedish language skills
  • Berget 8
  • Our episode on airsoft
  • Mountaineer madness
  • It's not the size of the game area, it's what you do with it that counts
  • Sjätte Tunnan (Sixth Barrel restaurant)
  • Why your teachers taught you to write neatly
  • How to escape from prison in the most convoluted fashion possible
  • Lack of medical attention
  • Moustache appreciation
  • The Camarilla
  • Code purple!
  • Crazy Gypsy Lady
  • Anti-trust
  • The big red one
