Hey Folks,

We wanted to let you know that we here at Rag-NERD-rok are going to be taking a month off from posting. We will be back with a new episode on Wednesday, June 19, 2019.

We’ve been posting every week for years now. And right now, we have no backlog. So if something happens that prevents us from recording one week, we have no podcast for you. And that’s not cool. So while we’re taking time off from posting, we’re going to keep recording to rebuild our backlog. 

After the break, we’ll be back with fresh games from our Pilot Season winners. 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. We’re here to answer them.

See you in a month!

This is it! It’s over! Our nightmare as finally come to an end!

In the last game of Ryan’s brief and simultaneously too-long Strange campaign, the group of unlikely heroes are joined by another compatriot (to help round out the party) and start to make their way to the rest of the Coder. 

Will she be able to help them remove the glitch that can allow people to rewrite The Strange? Will she even want to? And what kind of antics will the group get up to when they’re stuck on a boat for weeks?

Listen to find out!

The boys are back!

The group of completely professional world-savers has to finish the trials laid out before them. There’s only one left: The Red Room. And while there’s no backwards-talking people, it is still a deadly challenge. 

Will the team be able to complete the challenge and retrieve the key? And will they be able to resist the temptation of becoming gods in order to save the multiverse? Listen to find out!

This week, we have a special alpha test of a new game that Alex is creating. 

Four astronauts are the first humans to ever set foot on Mars. They are the best of the best, but there are challenges to face. They’ll have to deal with equipment failure, an incredibly hostile environment and the issues that arise between them if they want to complete their mission and get off the Red Planet alive. 

“Longshot” is a cooperative storytelling game about overcoming those obstacles and successfully carrying out the mission. We hope you enjoy it!

Also, this episode was mixed and edited by Alex (instead of Ryan, like usual). So if there’s a problem with the audio, blame Erik! But also let us know.

(Editor’s note: Alex here. I came up with the name “Longshot” after the recording, which is why I talk about having to name it in the episode. Don’t get confused!)
