Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags on November 2, 2015 by rhopigamma

Greetings Gamers! Sorry we’re late with posting this week’s episode, but we had some technical difficulties and then this weekend got CRAZY for me, which has delayed things for us. But, we’re here and we have a hodgepodge mess for you this week! We go over the most popular games being played on Roll20.net, how the Girl Scouts are starting to accept Table-Top RPG’s, and where the responsibilities of the Players and the GM lie with the game.

There is a lot of laughs, coughs, and overall merriment to be had, so come join us! You might learn something, too!

Greetings Gamers! This week, I have a bad cough and Howard’s got a sleeping baby on his chest, but we still bring you an episode! We talk about the differences in gaming in person and gaming with technology (online, phone, etc.) and even when you have to mix and match them!

Also, because of schedules and illness, we are going to take a week off after this. So we’ll see you next time!

Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags on October 8, 2015 by rhopigamma

Greetings Gamers! First of all, we got our audio situation fixed! Now for the episode. This week, we talk about House Rules and what kind of rule/guidelines/boundaries we have in the terms of keeping the group together and the game flowing. We then go deeper into our selves and our Game Mastering styles.

I can honestly say this is one of my favorite episodes to have recorded. So come join us!

Rho Pi Gamma, Season 6, Episode 002: Game/Life Balance

Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags on September 24, 2015 by rhopigamma

Greetings Gamers! This week, we discuss the great and delicate balance between Gaming and Real Life. Specifically, trying to find time for gaming while you go through the doldrums of real life (i.e. Work, Family, Kids, etc.).

Howard and I discuss how our lives have changed from the beginnings of our gaming careers in high school all the way up to today and how we manage our real world obligations and our love of the dice and screens.

Also, I realize that the audio is a little off. I had to record a different way than usual and I apparently didn’t have the settings just right. My voice recorded on the Left Channel, and Howard’s on the Right. I apologize for this and hope to have it fixed by next week’s episode!

Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags on September 17, 2015 by rhopigamma

Greetings Gamers! We’re back! After a LONG between season break, Rho Pi Gamma is back to help you with tips, tricks, advise, and stories about Table-Top Gaming!

We’re sorry it took us so long to bring you Season 6, but as with many games, real life tends to get in the way. We’ve got some changes for you this season! Mainly, we’ll be trying to get our episodes up to you by Thursdays now, as Sunday is when our schedules allow us to be able to record! I’m also going to start uploading an MP3 version of every episode and linking it to our blog, so you can enjoy your favorite RPG Podcast however you’d like!

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do the continuation of our Season Finale game from Season 5 like we usually do, but we do intend on bringing that to you soon. I hate leaving a game unfinished, don’t you?

So this week, we review an article from Epic Level Gaming; 10 Sins of the Players!

So grab your character sheets and dice! The pizza’s on the way, Mountain Dew’s in the fridge, and you are all welcomed back to our table! Roll Initiative and let’s get this Season Going!

Season 5, Episode 015: Season Finale – Deadlands!

Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags on November 12, 2014 by rhopigamma

Greetings Gamers! I have finally gotten this episode edited and posted. I’m really sorry it took me so long to get this out there.

A few things about this episode; For starters, Howard (as always) out did himself again with prep and story. Secondly, we attempted to record video with Roll20, but it was untested so it turned out we didn’t get it. So to help, I edited screen shots from the game so that you all still have some visuals!

Hopefully you enjoy and will join us next season!
