This week, Shane and Conrad battle for the soul of Old-School RPGs, while Savage watches from the Pulpit of Neutrality, and occasionally tosses a half-eaten opinion into the ring.
01:04 – This all came from Our First OSR Episode, which has apparently gone down in infamy
01:11 – The baseless accusations begin
02:36 – Sound Effects!
05:01 – To be fair, they also hate 4E
08:27 – Savage’s crime
09:59 – Gangbusters B/X, which I’d never heard of but amn’t that surprised to find exists.
10:16 – The OSR’s identity problem
11:13 – It took me a while to find out what a Kango hammer is. It seems to be a genericised brandname for pneumatic jackhammers, which I thought were more for breaking concrete than forcing pegs into holes.
11:30 – Our Combat as Sport Vs Combat as War episode
12:35 – Dragonlance, once TSR’s biggest property, now mostly forgotten. And that means the OSR people are remembering a time even before that!
12:41 – Vampire The Masquerade: Transylvania Chronicles. I’ll let WoD Veterans vent their spleens about this one
13:07 – Dolmenwood
13:46 – The actual title is even more pretentious than I made it sound
15:16 – Our Rulings vs Rules episode
16:55 – A weighty math-rock indeed
18:27 – The Midderlands
18:51 – AKA Sturgeon’s Law
21:04 – The Real Rulebook of 5E
22:52 – Don’t give it away so soon!
27:35 – The Shocking Twist!
30:16 – If you’d like to hear my pages of wasted diatribes, ask me a question on our Discord Server! Link below.
30:54 – Is this the good future or the bad future, Savage?
31:07 – Joy and Forgetfulness. It seems Blogspot ate Blogger at some point, and no-one really noticed
31:26 – Send Three and Fourpence
