A Dark and Stormy Night!

At last! Now that the players have come together and the characters are built, it’s time for our first campaign session! Listen as The Lamplighter, Jade Witch, Tempest, and Starchild encounter the escaped villain Calpyso and come together to stop her! I apologize for the intermittent sound glitches, they shouldn’t be too bad. Lyn Hill, Jason Tondro, Theron Bretz, and Rick Jones play while James Dawsey GMs.

If you enjoyed the podcast, please let us know! I hope to bring more episodes to you soon!


Beacon City Character Creation 02

Tonight Jason Tondro and Theron Bretz join me to create their characters for the upcoming Beacon City campaign. Listen as we discover the origins of The Lamplighter and Starchild! If you haven’t listened to our earlier podcast, you may want to hear that first so you can get an idea of what the setting is like, and what Rick and Lynn have come up with.

You can find part 01 here!

Avengers Revisited!

Spoilers again! Sorry, gang, but The Avengers is just too big an event for one podcast about supers gaming! Tonight I’m joined by Cam Banks and Jack Norris to talk about Marvel Heroic Roleplaying and how you can relate to the film in terms of gaming. We spend time discussing Milestones, unlockables, resources, and the difference between “Talky” scenes and “Transition” scenes. I hope you enjoy it! As always, feel free to comment on the show and let us know what you think!


Avengers Re-Assembled!

SPOILER ALERT! Tonight, James Dawsey is joined by Mutants and Masterminds creator Steve Kenson and Pop-Culture Evil Mastermind Professor Christopher McGlothlin! Tonight we discuss in detail the Avengers film, and how Game Masters and Players can relate to various scenes from it in terms of a Mutants and Masterminds game. Watch carefully for the Sanford and Son cameo. ;)

Thanks for tuning in! Let me know what you think in the comments section… and as always, Stay Vigilant!

Character Creation Podcast 01

Welcome to our first Beacon City Campaign podcast! Tonight James Dawsey GMs and introduces two of our players, Lynn Hill and Rick Jones.

Guest appearance by the Quickstart Character Creator!

More Campaign stuff to come, soon!

Oh, and I apologize for the ‘moment of silence’ as someone sent me some artwork in the midst of the podcast. I’ll have to share that artwork with you very soon to apologize for the distraction. :)
