  • Nextlevel2

    Woooow!!! I didn’t realize you guys had organized the episodes!
    That’s fantastic, especially if any listener is like me who jumps around from episode to episode in no consecutive order – now everything is nicely structured.

    “FATE – Core accelerated” looks like a perfect rag-NERD-rok-esque venture into each of the hosts’ personalities where there can be some fun times…..
    … and …
    “Dungeons and Dragons” probably will contain the intense story-telling which is also reminiscent of rag-NERD-rok.
    I’m already excited 🙂 ,
    and not to forget ‘apocalypse world’.

  • Robert

    Any change to get “Monsters and other Childish Things” on track again?

    Cheers!
    Robert

    • We’re supposed to get back to it once The Nettle Crusades wraps, but because of a lot of scheduling conflicts, that’s taking a while. (We haven’t played a session since the summer, which I guess is one of the drawbacks of having 7+ people who all want to be present for the ending.)

      I would look for it starting sometime early in 2016. Everyone loves playing Candlewick, and there’s no doubt we’ll get back to it when we can.
