Ryan’s MacBook Pro has unexpectedly shuffled off this mortal coil and gone to the great Apple Store in the Sky, so there will be no new episode today.

Rest assured that we will have this week’s episode up tomorrow afternoon at the usual posting time. We have a wonderful yarn about two Delta Green agents who are asked to inventory the contents of a green box, and discover that the agent overseeing its stock may have been getting high on his own supply of Mythos artifacts. Look for that tomorrow afternoon.

Until then, we invite you to browse our extensive backlog of actual plays for its many Meyer barfs and Will thoughts.

For those of you who have been following the comments on our recent games, it should come as no surprise that one of our listeners has created a ringtone of Meyer and James being Meyer and James, and was generous enough to share the file with us. So without further ado, for your listening pleasure, here it is: Meyer’s AAAAH.mp3, submitted by Chados!

Much thanks.

This week, Alex, Ryan, Meyer, Derek, Ed, James, Chris and Will sit down for a chat about the recently completed Eclipse Phase campaign, The Promethean Chronicles. We cover our favorite moments, the biggest surprises, things we wish we could have done differently, and the ultimate fate of our characters. In addition, Alex discusses some of his ideas that never made it to the table, as well as a proposal for a short sequel campaign. If you’ve enjoyed Alex’s Eclipse Phase games, join us for a look back on the laughs, the violence, and the existential horror that kept us going for 29 sessions!

One of the most intriguing aspects of science fiction and fantasy is their ability to transport us to other worlds, often incredibly detailed fictional places with their own elaborate histories. In this episode, we discuss some examples of works in these genres that spark our imaginations, as well as what makes them so evocative. From tenacious, resourceful characters to highly advanced technological toys, each element contributes something unique to these worlds, helping us to share in their creators’ vision. After the break, we recommend some of our favorite sci-fi and fantasy media for your future enjoyment, and Meyer puts our knowledge of obscure sci-fi titles to the test. So grab your ray guns, deely boppers and rings of true power, and prepare yourselves for another thought-provoking discussion with The Rag-NERD-rok Crew!

Game of Thrones has quickly become one of the most respected shows and book series of our generation, seemingly overnight. Before the HBO show, few people had heard of the series. Now, everyone talks about how Winter is Coming. We here at Rag-NERD-rok love us some Game of Thrones. So with the third season recently wrapped, we decided to talk about it and share our thoughts about… OMG THE RED WEDDING! I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT HAPPENED! WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK! I DON’T…BUT…IT…GAH!!!!!


(Spoilers and show notes after the jump. And sorry about the Ned Stark meme. We just had to do it.)
