Yes it's the return of Tuesday Tales, where I discuss stories from Back in the Day, and sometimes things from more recent games. Today on Episode 72, I talk about the time my character Griswald, the namesake of FMAD lost his mind.                  *****     But first, a quick disclaimer:     ***** I will mention something in this episode that some might find upsetting, so if this topic bothers you, then please don't listen. I mean no disrespect to anyone who struggles with mental illness. I encourage anyone who struggles with their mental health to consult with a mental healthcare provider.  If you are struggling with thoughts of self-harm, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has a hotline at 800-273-8255. --- Send in a voice message:
A quick story about the recovery of a legendary suit of armor. No frogs here, so move along. My brother, whose character had this item, made this comment on the Follow Me, And Die! FB page: Hey Larry I need to tell you that you are only sort of right Yes the armor was pitch black but it was full plate. And it didn't age you but turned all of your hair completely white. It had 2 or 3 other abilities but I can't remember them and can't get to my notebook at the moment.  --- Send in a voice message:
I want to encourage everyone to go to the small local cons in their area. Offer to run games. I mention the three scenarios I'm running, one each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I'm bringing them to Gary Con as options for pick up games. --- Send in a voice message:
I discuss how players in my game wanted to display the trophies of their kills. Two call ins from Jeremy at the Thought Eater podcast. He also writes the Thought Eater blog. I nearly lost this whole episode. I mis-numbered it as 87, and while I was still in Audacity, tried re-naming the files and directories. Do NOT do that! I managed to recover this episode. It isn't cut well, but after multiple trains interrupting my flow and nearly losing the whole thing from my own stupidity, I'm calling it good enough. --- Send in a voice message:
Today, I'd like to talk about railroads. Back in May and June of 2015, I wrote a couple of blog articles about railroad style of play. The first, RAILROAD VS. SANDBOX – THE TIMELINE.  The second, WHAT IF YOUR RPG INVOLVES A RAILROAD?  --- Send in a voice message:
My thoughts on building a framework or checklist to help me build more interesting adventures that might also be useful to novice GMs. --- Send in a voice message:
Today I discuss the time back in the day when Griswald faced the consequences of an alignment deviation. SHIP'S KLAXON HORN by U.S. Department of Defense SOURCE: --- Send in a voice message:
Today I discuss organization. But first some of the usual side quests before the main topic. It finally clarified in my mind what to call all of my blog readers, social media followers, Patrons, YouTube viewers, and podcast listeners. You'll have to listen in for the reveal. I've got some T-shirt ideas and will have a poll about them. A bit of mention about Kickstarter ideas and planning. (Nothing definite yet, so don't get excited.) You can sign up for the announcement email whenever I finally launch my Kickstarter here: --- Send in a voice message:
Here's episode 79, actually number 80 since I started with episode 0. Today, I'd like to talk about Language and Writing. I've been working on a blog post, but it's slow going. Some news in addition to Caravans & Trade, I have a second Copper seller on DriveThruRPG, Library Generation Tables. --- Send in a voice message:
Call ins from Colin "Spikepit" Green and Pete Jones of the Dragons Are Real podcast. After some review of the past couple of podcasts and blog posts, and some stats on the podcast and one of my PDFs on DriveThruRPG, I finally get to the topic of today's episode. --- Send in a voice message:
After much reflection on my workflow, and the expense of some of my tools, combined with the looming demise of G+, I am convinced, that for me, I need to get serious about moving my workflow to Linux. Plus, dual booting a computer is like having two and is twice as much work to keep updated. You can read my companion article here on my blog. I go into more detail and link to more information on all the things I mention.  Both the podcast and blog article are quick overviews, and I may have left out some things. Please reply on Anchor or comment on the blog article to keep the conversation going. I have an Android phone which is based on linux.  So I've already recorded episodes straight to my phone. Linux is based on unix Mac OS is based on unix. iPhone is also based on unix. --- Send in a voice message:
G+ Finally made it clear that all the personal G+ information will be deleted. hear my thoughts here on the podcast, or read them on the blog. --- Send in a voice message:
Today on episode 75 another Tuesday Tales. Last week I discussed insanity and promised I'd tell the story of how Griswald almost died of disease, and again, another cleric had to heal him. Thanks for the call in from Shane Ward of Gilligan's Isle of ADD. I also have a new podcast follower, the Role Per Second Podcast based in Guadalara, Mexico. Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos! --- Send in a voice message:
Today's episode of Saturday Scrawl marks the completion of a complete week of the regular Tues, Thurs., Sat. cycle. I also had a couple of extra episodes. As so many are talking about conventions they're attending and both running and playing games, I want to talk about running convention games. I also share a snippet of a story from my foggy mind as I awoke this morning. I'm not sure what I was dreaming, but I've got a great start to a short story. --- Send in a voice message:
What do you do when life gets in the way of your hobbies?  Tonight's episode is a short one as I'm just taking a quick break from an emergency project at work. I said I was back to my normal podcast schedule this week, and I'm sticking to it. We have calls ins from Tim Shorts of Gothridge Manor and Ray Otus of Plundergrounds. --- Send in a voice message:
So far, I've had 7 call ins from three people on my episode Saturday about Dwarven Beards. I wrote a follow up blog article with more details and some tables. This morning I realized I left out some things I meant to touch on, so I've written a second blog article with some more tables. Both articles are linked below.. Rather than let this information simmer, I'm ready to respond to these call ins. You'll want to listen to episode 69 before you listen to this one. Matt Jackson is a first time caller. Ray Otus of the Plundergrounds podcast and Cody M. of the No Save For You Podcast. Check out the two blog articles I've written on the topic: Musings on Dwarven Beards and More Musings on Dwarven Beards. --- Send in a voice message:
My granddaughter is fascinated with magic as portrayed in cartoons, like Disney's Frozen. Lately, she is hooked on magic wands. Her grandmother got her a tablet and her parents got her a dozen styluses, just in case. Today, one such stylus is her wand. I think this is a great example of role play, she is all in when it comes to being who she says she is. She likes rolling dice, but she's not quite ready for sitting still to play an RPG. She just turned four last Sunday. --- Send in a voice message:
After having a long beard for over a year, the end of April, early May will mark two years since I stopped trimming it and let it grow. I've been thinking about beards and how to portray them more realistically where dwarves are concerned. But first, a call in from Colin, Spikepit himself. --- Send in a voice message:
After a hiatus due to craziness of the annual busy time at work and some family issues I made a quick episode to update everyone on what I'm up to in the new year. I'll try to do a weekly Saturday scrawl the rest of January until work slows down, then I'll return to my 3 episode a week schedule. --- Send in a voice message:
