Adam Scott Glancy, co-author Delta Green and friend of the podcast, has contributed to many of our finest episodes. Patsy created a great collage of the finest moments in his games.
Across the top, left to right, we have the doomed trek across the Alps from Lord Of The Peaks, the house besieged by flying vampires in The Uncorrupted, and a most unusual dogfight from The Night Mission.
Below, we have the sinister court of Ape-Caesar from New Rome, Bronze-age worm sorcerers meeting twentieth-century firepower in U-boot Heraus, a rock-paper-scissors game deciding an enemy Taker’s fate in The Torus, and the franken-dog test subjects from The Wounded.
At the bottom, we have the detritus of many nations and many wars, representing the forty-minute history lesson that begins most Glancy games- or as I like to call it, the best part.
October is spoopy skeleton month, so Aaron, Tom, and I answer your questions about horror!
Note: There was some problems recording this episode, resulting in some occasional crackle – I have reduced it but was unable to entirely remove it. Sorry! I will take greater care to prevent that in our next episode.
Too many RPGs have bloated skill lists, but not the games of the Palladium Megaverse. Special guest Chris, Aaron, Tom, and I go through some of the Palladium games and discuss the merits of their skills from fly fishing to entomological medicine. Find out which game has the worst and best (?) skills!
This month we’re celebrating Bridget’s games!
Top left-to-right, we have a veteran furry-porn artist contemplating the design of the God Of Roadkill; The Witch of Dream-away Camp making her presence known; Wolf Knight from Bridget’s Shadowrun games making her usual dramatic entrance.

Caleb and I discuss traps, particularly ones from Grimtooth’s Traps Too. Why do dungeons in fantasy RPGs often have so many and so impractical traps? The implications of obsessive trap builders are fascinating. We also review many of the traps from the book.
Caleb is often memorable in the games he plays in and Patsy has chosen some of Caleb’s best scenes here!
Top row, left to right:
- James Arnold, Southern dilettante, asking for a weapon upgrade in Midnight Sub Rosa;
- Haru Kanno of Tribes Of Tokyo, outlining the infamous OPERATION BLACK DOLPHIN;
- Paranoid dream-traveller Omri guest starring in Masks Of Nyarlathotep;
- Trey from Gate 9, refusing the Call To Adventure;
- Gaspar DeCena of Cottonwood, fighting corruption with corruption.
Bottom row, left to right:
- In Lord Of The Peaks, the expedition is nearly doomed by the terrible luck of their demolitions expert;
- Half-off of Fallen Flag walks out into the wastes one last time with a head full of ghosts and a belt full of grenades;
- Operation Opal Elk comes to a fiery end as the agents fail to store their nail bombs sufficiently far away from their flamethrower.

Our resident purple-preferring player is being honored in style!
Here, left to right, we have Four-Hands leading his li-kayku into battle, Quoth the Raven Uplift, Mitchum Cleary reaching for his trusty Lucille, The Mauve hand hiding with young Jeremy just before things get even darker, the grain silo interrogation from ‘A Very Thorough Murder’, Dr Kamarov facing off against a Dark Young, and along the bottom is Han’s narrow escape through the crawlspace form Fallen Flag.
