Season 5, Episode 006: How to be a good Player – The Roasting of Puff!

Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags on July 1, 2014 by rhopigamma

Greetings Gamers! Sorry for the delay, our Editor was having some tech issues and she’s getting ready to move!

This week, our friend Puff asked Howard and I to really tear into her and let her honestly know what she could do to be a better Player. And tell her we do, though it’s not as bad as it sounds! Come join us and see if you can learn something too!

Also, there won’t be an episode next week, as our Editor will be settling in at her new home and I will be doing various traveling throughout the week. We’ll see you in 2 weeks then!

Season 5, Episode 000: An Ending, a Beginning…

Posted in Podcast Episodes, Updates with tags , on April 14, 2014 by rhopigamma

Greetings Gamers! The GM Screen is set up, the Maps are being drawn, the Dice are in our hands, the last touches of our Character Sheets are beings penciled in, and we wait with bated breath for the Game Master to start…

All of you are familiar with this, I’m sure. The anticipation for a new beginning, a new start.

That is what’s going on here at Rho Pi Gamma! We’ve got some BIG changes for Season 5! Some of which, we weren’t originally planning when we ended Season 4.

As such, we had already recorded the Season 5 Opener, finishing up the Shaintar Game that Howard had started running for us in our Season 4 Finale.

So here is the Final half of the gaming session. I’m logging this episode as Season 5, Episode 0, because of the new things going on for Season 5.

Since we’ve done a server move as well, and are having some issues with the new one, the link is to download the episode (and not just out right play it, like normal). I apologies for that, but it’s the best I can do right now.

We’ll be back, in full force, for Season 5 in May! See you then!

Season 4, Episode 026: Season Finale!

Posted in GM, Player, Podcast Episodes with tags on November 10, 2013 by rhopigamma

This week we wrap up a wonderful season of Rho Pi Gamma with our Cohort, Howard, running Liz and I in our first Savage Worlds game using the Shaintar setting! For those of you who may not remember, we interviewed the creator of Shaintar, Sean Patrick Fannon a few months ago on episode 9 of this season (RhoPiGammaSn4Ep009.mp3) and now we finally get a taste of it!

Thank you all for making this season one of our best ever! See you next year!

Season 4, Episode 025: Interview with Trin Miller & Conner Marx

Posted in Interview, Podcast Episodes with tags on November 3, 2013 by rhopigamma

This week we start wrapping up this season with another feather in our podcasting cap; We finally got Trin Miller on for an interview! Trin plays Natalie, the lead female role of The Gamers: Hands of Fate, an awesome CCG player of Romance of the 9 Empires that is heart broken over the way the game she loves so much is going. And, of course, Conner Marx returns again with his deep character questions and wonderful humor.

Unfortunately, our Co-host Liz wasn’t able to join us on this one (she wasn’t feeling very well), but our Cohort Howard and I take the field and delve into the motivations, heroic traits and flaws, and the feelings the characters of the movie show and what these actors who played them think of their roles!

So come join us and then go and don’t forget to buy all the Gamers movies! They really are worth it!

Season 4, Episode 024: Metagaming

Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags on October 27, 2013 by rhopigamma

Greetings Gamers! This week we cover a subject that I’m actually surprised we haven’t covered in more depth before here on Rho Pi Gamma; Metagaming. We talk about when it’s bad, how it’s bad, and even some times when it can be a good thing. Yes, that’s right, Metagaming can actually be a good thing, if used properly. Come give a listen and find out how!
