Star Frontiers Basic

This week we're going all the way back to 1982! We're playing an adventure from TSR's Star Frontiers using the Basic Rules.  This is an extremely outdated style of game with outdated rules. It's really barely more sophisticated than an old-fashioned random board game like Sorry or Candyland. There is a more advanced ruleset, but we wanted to demonstrate some of the history of role-playing games.  Connect with us on  Facebook ,  Instagram ,   Twitter , and  Discord.   Let us know what you think!

Lasers and Feelings Part 2a

Remember that silly Lasers and Feelings one-shot we did between seasons 2 and 3? We did a sequel!

TFTGGW - Cow Soup Part 1 - Farmed and Dangerous

Remember back in Season 1 when the heroes found out goblins had been feeding toxic soup to cows as part of some strange plan? The party may have lost interest in that plot thread, but our friend Pavel has picked it back up, pulled on it, and tied it into a strange knot.  Here is the result: a truly bizarre and hilarious one-shot, split into three parts, starring some amazing guest players: Brandon Weigel, The Pink Pastor, Ben Carter, and most shocking of all, Sarah Fox from the Adventure.exe podcast !  Connect with us on  Facebook ,  Instagram ,   Twitter , and  Discord.   Let us know what you think!

Tara, Aster, Mama Sass, and Papa Gasten have agreed to be escorted into the city of Durfolk by a large force of nervous soldiers.
