Balboa gets us going by taking out guard with style. Bedek seeks a courier named Fedex and takes his friend, Rye, along Hruga looks for a ship called the Crusty Barnacle. Aster and Elan become hired muscle for opposite sides. And we get to dust off the chase rules!
In this first episode of our Savage Lankhmar game, we go over some of the background of Fritz Leiber’s Lankhmar setting and his erstwhile heroes … Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. We then get into some of the rule changes that make Savage Lankhmar different from plain old Savage Worlds. And finally, we delve into our characters.
For more information on Lankhmar and the twain, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, there is a wealth of material. First and foremost are the books themselves. Leiber uses more imagery in a short story than many writers us in a trilogy. Great stuff. Also, if you can find it, the DnD material from the 80’s and 90’s is wonderful. Check out the website Scrolls of Lankhmar. It is a fan generated website with more material than you could possibly believe. And of course, the new Savage World books are a must have.

Sorry this one took so long. I haven’t had so many computer problems in so short a time since we’ve been doing the podcast. But it really is a case of “Best For Last.” Te ending of this game left us all gasping and wishing we smoked. It is a great finale. It’s not perfect. We did lose some audio before the laptop officially died. But the ending is there.
So…. for the last time in this game… here we go!
Black finds snow deer! Jade gets a blessing, picks a side and looks all smug. Aerious has a meeting. Jim gets a shock and the story ends on an amazing high note.
I got an email from Tracy Hickman of Dragonlance fame. Here is something he has helped test. It’s digital 3D environments mapped over real world objects. You wear a helmet and hold props and go through a “dungeon.” If you’ve ever gone through True Dungeon at GenCon, it’s like that… turned to 11.
Sorry this one is late. I binge watched Daredevil earlier this week. And then was doing my spring yard work. But, here we go. The home stretch. This is the penultimate episode of our Burning Wheel game. It’s a big steamroller out of control episode. We find snow deer… lots and lots of snow deer. Jade makes a connection. There is a joyous reunion. Jim does something…. shocking.
In this game, Leif, Black, Jade, and Tom all reach the Aerie…. FINALLY! There is an avalanche and sneaking and we find out that Black doesn’t want to scrape up poop.
We have a pair of short bit for everyone. First up is a conversation outtake from Episode 187. Joe is unhappy and we take some time work through it. In the second part, the guys have an intervention for Roy because of his Kickstarter habit.
Here are the links for everything we talk about.
We wrap up the trial, award artha and move the story along. Leif is reunited with an old friend from Salt Harbor. Jim fights off a group of scouts. Aerious attempts to convert. And Jade spills a secret.
It is the TRIAL OF THE CENTURY in Pulder. Tom, Black and Jade are on trial for their lives. It’s time for a Duel Of Wits!
