The Reviews. Episode 6 – Cities: Skyline
32:22
https://therpgacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/The-Review-of-Cities-Skylines.mp3 Hello and welcome to the 6th episode of our 'The Review' series, this is our first board game review.  Kosmos was kind enough to send me a review copy of Cities: Skylines. Cities: Skylines is the board game port of the popular video game series. The game is 1-4 co-op where players work together to build a city with the resident's happiness being the objective. The happier they are, the better. Play involves developing land, building utility services, residential construction, industrial and commercial in a way that synergies them to keep things like Pollution, Traffic and crime down while maintaining a balance of Water, Electrical and Garbage services to meet or exceed the needs of the current population.  You also track your workforce. Too many ppl or not enough and you'll need to spend money during milestone phases which makes it harder to build in the next phase. Overall Rating from us: B.  Solid fun co-op game with sliding scale of luck/strategy and high replayability. Purchase a copy of Cities:Skylines from Amazon with this link and support our show! Comments and Feedback are always welcome.

1:38:00
Listen, subscribe & review on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or Google Podcasts. Sign up to our newsletter! This episode is also available in video on YouTube. This month's panel is the sort of panel that I created "The Rolistes Present…" for. It offers a unique insight on the tabletop RPG community in a European country and, who knows, might lead to the development of coll future interactions (I am crossing fingers for my guest to join us in London for Dragonmeet in 2020). To take us to the shores of Lusitania our guides will be: Especuatório/Rubber Chicken Games – Daniel Carvalho (He/Him)Published author by Edita-me and RPG writer for Especulatório and Rubber Chicken Games. Member of the portuguese RPG broadcasting platform Rola Iniciativa, and the creator of games such as Asilo, A Dinner to Die For and The Darkest Side.RPGénesis – Claudia Silva (She/Her)Started RPing and GMing in 1997. Created and admins the Portuguese RPG Discord Server – RPG Portugal, and admins its sister community on Facebook. Is the creator of the first Portuguese RPG-design jam RPGénesis, which first ran in August 2010. Has been an editor for White Wolf, supplied art for indie RPGs and supplements, as well as written an entire supplement about villains that ended up never being published. Is still quite sad about that. Is Lead Writer for the UK-based LARP Death Unto Darkness. Has created the RPGs “Drama Gakuen”, “Generation Hex”, “Senryaku” and “Phonomancer”.Rola Iniciativa – André Tavares (He/Him)André is a producer and content creator at Rola Iniciativa platform, being the most notorious show Roll for Diplomacy where André already interview RPG designers such as Adam Koebel, Luke Crane, John Harper and the Bakers. He’s the co-owner of Maré Baixa, an independent tabletop game publisher, counting with a couple of small games published, such as Tower of Arcana, Dungeon Heart and The Orc and the Pie. André is also the founder of Rolisboa, the Portuguese RPG convention, and ultimately he gives the best hugs. I renez my call to my panellists, tabletop RPG authors and fans from Portugal to visit us in London for Dragonmeet 2020. If you are yourself already in London, please consider joining our our next monthly “London Le Drinks & Dices” at Bad Moon Cafe every first Wednesday of the month.

The Reviews. Episode 5 – Wildermyth
50:20
https://therpgacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/The-Reviews-Wildermyth.mp3 Hello and welcome to the 5th episode of our 'The Review' series, this is our 1st review of a non tabletop RPG. This Review is for Wildermyth a turn based strategy RPG game from Worldwalker games. Wildermyth is a character-driven, procedurally-generated tactical RPG for the PC. Start with a small band of farmers—full of personality, but lacking in experience—and turn them into unique, legendary heroes. Your party will defend the Yondering Lands from various threats, alternating between turn-based combat and strategic decisions on the overland map. Over time, your heroes will uncover the secrets of the land through comic-strip-style events, presenting them with choices that can change their appearance, personalities, relationships, and abilities. And victory (or death, whichever comes first) isn’t the end. Heroes go into your “Legacy,” and can show up in future playthroughs. Over the course of several stories, your legacy heroes grow into larger-than-life myths. Overal Rating from us: B+. solid fun, high re-playability with interesting character choices. Wildermyth is current available on Steam as an Early Access game for $19.99 Comments and Feedback are always welcome.

https://therpgacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Show-and-Tell-68-Heart.mp3 Hello and welcome to  Show & Tell # 68 – Heart the new RPG by Rowan, Rook, and Decard Games. Heart is the latest game from the minds of designers Grant Howitt and Christopher Taylor and the spiritual successor to their previous hit game Spire. In this episode we sit down with Grant and Chris as well as the producer and business manager of RR&D games, Mary Hamilton. As they put it "Heart is a game about damnation, redemption, survival and obsession. It’s also a game about body horror, walls made of breathing meat, and exploring a possibly-malevolent parasite dimension." Heart will be hitting Kickstarter Sept 17th. Find out all about what RR&D is up by following them on Twitter: Grant - https://twitter.com/gshowitt Mary - https://twitter.com/newsmary Chris - https://twitter.com/TheMaddigan Find out more about Rowan, Rook, and Decard here: Discord - https://discord.gg/D8qS6eh Newsletter - bit.ly/rrdgames Website - http://rowanrookanddecard.com Enjoy!

The rest of the posse, as mentioned is Michael from the Redemption podcast, Kali from Riff & Rabble and May from Return to Greyhawk. The next film in our curriculum will be The Never Ending Story.

The RPG Academy Network is disbanding.
1:45
https://therpgacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Network-Is-Disbanding-announcement.mp3 Hello!  Michael here with a brief statement about the future of The RPG Academy Network. After many successful years, the RPG Academy Network of podcasters, streamers, bloggers and more is disbanding. This parting of the ways is mainly due to the time, stress, effort and energy required for running such a huge undertaking and is in no way indicative of any hard feelings or negativity between any of the various participants. This decision was arrived at collectively with Michael making the final call. So what does this mean?  The RPG Academy podcast will continue without any noticeable changes or interruptions.  AcadeCon will continue without any noticeable changes or interruptions. And all the various shows currently in the network will continue without any changes or interruptions other than no longer falling under the umbrella of The RPG Academy Network. Over these past few years the RPG Academy Network has forged some cherished friendships and partnerships and those are not going away.  We here at The RPG Academy are excited and hopeful for the future of these shows and we fully expect many of them to find new homes in larger and more successful networks - networks with an infrastructure to give them the resources we were unable to here and help them grow an audience worthy of their talents. Looking back on the Network: How it started and how it grew beyond our wildest expectations - I can truly say it's been fun, which means we must have been doing it right. Thanks!! ~Michael and the entire faculty of The RPG Academy podcast.

https://therpgacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/RPGA-film-Studies_Episode-04_2018.05.15.mp3   Delicatessen   (Butchers & Feelings) The RPG Academy bonus series “Film Studies” is back (sorry for the delay)! Once more, Kalum from “The Rolistes Podcast” takes us to France with “Delicatessen” a post-apocalyptic dark comedy from 1991 by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro. As a reminder, for Film Studies, members of the Network sometimes joined by non-Network guests, will review a film and discuss ways it could inspire tabletop RPG adventures, characters or practices. Our competent academic team is completed by Bianca from “The Broadswords” and Scott from “Lawful & Orderly”. Tabletop RPG settings systems and setting mentioned included: “Fantaji Universal Role-Playing Game” by Anthropos Games, “Monster of the Week” by Evil Hat Productions, “Dread” by The Impossible Dream, “Dungeon Crawl Classics” by Goodman Games, “Star Wars - The Roleplaying Game” by West End Games and its “Darkstryder Campaign”, as well as “Curse of Stradh” by Wizards of the Coast. The next film in our curriculum will be Neil Jordan‘s “High Spirits” from 1988. Let us know ahead of the recording about if this one inspired you some tabletop RPG adventures and maybe we will discuss it on the show. This new series is still in its early stages and we are still fiddling with the format. Please send us your feedback so we can fine tune it for your enjoyment, to tell us about your own experience with the movies discussed or even suggest films you would like us to cover in future episodes.

It should come as no surprise that I am a huge fan of the Firefly TV show.  I currently rank Out of Gas as my favorite episode of television - period.  So when given the chance to play the game as a Trial with one of the designers (PK Sullivan) I leapt at the chance . . . but then got a bit nervous.  It's one thing to role play a fictional character I made up, but another to step into the shoes of aa much beloved character, but that's just what we did. For this Trial our players are: Michael ( @TheRpgAcademy ) playing Serenity's Engineer Kaylee Frye Chris Burlew ( @Burlew_Chris) as first mate Zoe Washburn Kenall Jung ( @Kenderama ) as Captain Tight pants, himself, Malcom Reynolds. and our GM for this session is PK Sullivan  Comments and Feedback are always welcome.

Endless Realms is the first project from the design team at Lunar Games and uses their own rule system that's a d10/comparative system. It's very streamlined system, easy to learn but filled with options for those that want to explore it's depth.  But for me personally, the icing on the cake is the setting/lore they've created.  With some amazing art talent and a custom world filled with unique and thought out species the initial setting for Endless Realms is truly filled with endless possibilities.  Please check out their Kickstarter when it goes live on April 24th and listen to our Trial of Endless Realms that will be releasing over the next couple weeks. For this Trial our players are: Michael ( @TheRpgAcademy ) playing a Silean elemental caster named Sannas Michael Waldschlager III ( @LoserMLW ) playing a Yakshi warden named Tiny Willow Talyor LaBresh ( @Leviathan Files ) playing a Al'Miren Dandy named He'Talm II Tanner Clausen ( @TantaClaus ) playing a Kalamir Barbarian named Taug Shabek   Comments and Feedback are always welcome.

Welcome to Detention – LIVE, Ep 33 w/ @KickAssEmily
57:21
Hello Academaniacs! Welcome to Detention!   This episode of Detention is sponsored by Galatune.   As usual, these episodes are a little more rough around the edges, with less editing to reflect a more conversational tone. They also include more of the tangents, bad jokes, and adult language that we tend to use when we're hanging out and having fun. Detention LIVE is the new weekly LIVE talk show format podcast from The RPG Academy. Extra curricular is where the hosts discuss things happening outside of their RPG lives. Michael talks about AcadeCon, of course.  And Stranger Things Season 2 Emily talks about her in-development Magical Girl game: Domina magica 10 Things Improv game Where have my fingers been. In Used Books - Emily talks about the first and only game she ran and the importance of session 0's (take a drink) plus the value of the characters having secret goals to achieve. Cryptozoology - MawMaw or things that jump up out of the Ground Accessories Audience Q&A As always, thanks for listening. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or requests for future episodes. We hope you enjoy.

Trial of Satanic Panic ep 4 -Heartfelt confessions
54:53
Welcome to episode 4  of our Trial of Satanic Panic. A Trial is where we test out a new game system. Satanic Panic is a currently Kickstarter'ing game by Jim McClure. Jim is a member of the One Shot Podcast Network and you may know him from Talking Tabletop or his first RPG Reflections. Satanic Panic is a new RPG that takes the idea that the Satanic Panic that happened in the late 70's and early 80's about the evils of Role Playing Games was justified; Playing a tabletop game CAN lead to demons and devils and corruption.   In Satanic Panic the players assume the roles within a secret government agency with the mission to contain, control and eliminate the tabletop threat.   Our DM for this episode is Jim McClure himself. For players, you have Michael (@therpgacademy) Playing Reginald, the Tactician Scott (@Geowtf) playing Inka Dink, the Solider Quinn Wilson (@monkipi) playing Frederico, the Inquisitor and Kendall Jung (@redemptionpod) playing Aaron, the reformed Table Topper.   enjoy!

Welcome to Detention, Episode 11!
1:10:35
Hello Academaniacs! Welcome to the long-awaited return of Detention! I guess we've good for the past 5 months. Well, 3 months. Because we recorded this episode in January 2017! Don't think too hard about the recording and release schedule. Podcasting is all timey-wimey. Detention is sponsored by BattleBards and Easy Roller Dice. In this episode, Caleb and Scott are joined by special guest Taylor from Game Closet and Riverhouse Games. As usual, these episodes are a little more rough around the edges, with less editing to reflect a more conversational tone. They also include more of the tangents, bad jokes, and adult language that we tend to use when we're hanging out and having fun. As you now know, Taylor joined the hallowed halls of the RPG Academy earlier this year. When this episode was recorded, this marvelous event had just been announced. Again, timey-wimey. Deal with it. In Extra Curricular, Caleb talks about trying to figure out how to hack existing systems to get what he wants for a new game and then giving up and just designing a new system. (And as future Caleb writes this, let it be known that the game he wrote this for fell through before it even started. But the system is still good and will make a play test appearance at AcadeCon). Scott talks about the impending doom from the Smarty Bomb. And Taylor talks about prepping for con games. In Used Books, Taylor talks about musical inspiration for games. We also discuss how tools used in game prep don't always transition over into tools for use during game play. In Class Review, we discuss the Druid at great length. Sadly, even after pushing off this Review as long as possible, Matt was not able to join us to talk about his favorite class. Luckily for us, though, Taylor is extremely passionate about Druids and delivered a fantastic conversation! We talk about how the evocative images of the natural world can translate into describing magical events in the game; how brutal and truly neutral nature is; how amazing and useful Wild Shape is out of combat; and how many examples of Druids we can find in other games. -Professor Crunch- As always, thanks for listening. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or requests for future episodes. We hope you enjoy. Stay tuned for a new Detention development in the near future (that Michael has pretty much already spoiled)!

They also include more of the tangents, bad jokes, and adult language that we tend to use when we're hanging out and having fun. In Extra Curricular, Caleb talks about his new job and Emerald City (Which future Caleb who is writing this doesn't like. Big surprise.) Scott talks about Lawful and Orderly, our new live game that has been going very well on our Twitch stream. And Quinn talks about graduating and going on interviews. He also teases us about some secret projects. In Used Books, shares a tale of disaster that happened when one of his players took over as GM in a home-brew world. We discuss the importance of a session zero and the virtues of teleporting pirates. In Class Review, we discuss the almighty Bard. It is generally agreed that the 5E version of the Bard is the best, and the Lore College is the best of the best. We also dip into the debate of pretend vs reality in role playing games. Be sure to also listen for how Scott wins every escape room ever and the invention of a new term "D&D AF D&D". -Professor Crunch- As always, thanks for listening.

Trial of DreamChaser ep 4 – Super Chefien
41:03
Hello and welcome to the Trial of Dreamchaser, the new RPG from  Imagining Games. The game is currently on Kickstarter and has already funded but has some excellent stretch goals you could help it reach.   The game poses the question: What is your dream? and the entire game is built around helping your characters achieve their dreams.  Our dream includes a Fear Monster, a sentient frying pan, Sorcwhicy and at least one murder.  This was originally played over our Twitch Channel but sadly our stream was corrupted and I was unable to save the video.  There are a few audio glitches and I edited around most of the Twitch interaction, but that chat room was on fire! The game features the lead designer, Peter Petrusha as our Game Master. Michael (@therpgacademy) plays Stan Which Caleb (@TheCalebG) plays Ash Kevein (@SharnDM) plays Kwa Zeen   Comments and Feedback are always welcome.

Field Trip to Vasiley’s Woe – episode 5
1:06:52
Hello and welcome to another exciting Field Trip from The RPG Academy Podcast. This time we are heading into the land of Imperiums a campaign setting for Pathfinder and now on Kickstarter to be converted to D&D 5e.   Vasiley's Woe is the second of four interconnected modules that make up an entire campaign arc. The first of the four, Feast Hall of Ash, was featured on One Shot Podcast and you can listen to those episodes here. It's not necessary to do so as we are not strictly continuing that story and our characters are newly introduced. But it's a great module and One Shot always does a good job. It's worth a listen. As mentioned above, there is currently a Kickstarter to fund this campaign series to are converted to D&D 5E. It has already funded but can always use some extra love. Please go and check it out here William, the author of this campaign series will also be at AcadeCon 2016. Look for him there. Please note: This is a Pathfinder module and it has been a long time since I ran D&D 3.5. I've never run Pathfinder. I made mistakes with the rules. Please associate those with us and not the module.   Comments and Feedback are always welcome.

Please go and check it out here William, the author of this campaign series will also be at AcadeCon 2016. Look for him there. Please note: This is a Pathfinder module and it has been a long time since I ran D&D 3.5. I've never run Pathfinder.

Welcome to Detention, Episode 9!
1:07:19
Hello Academaniacs! Welcome to a new bonus feature on The RPG Academy, Detention!   We were so happy to hear good feedback about this bonus content that we decided to make more! In this episode, Caleb and Scott are joined by special guest Quinn from Swallows of the South. As usual, these episodes are a little more rough around the edges, with less editing to reflect a more conversational tone. They also include more of the tangents, bad jokes, and adult language that we tend to use when we're hanging out and having fun. Detention is sponsored by Battle Bards! Be sure to check out their newest albums and don't forget to use our exclusive coupon code when making a purchase. Extra Curricular starts with debating how Caleb says things. Scott shares his travel experiences and we come up with a new take on the classic dystopian future trope. Quinn talks about school and karaoke and we get onto a target about cosplay. Caleb talks about The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret. In Used Books, Caleb shares the home-brew world of Sanctuary and the game that didn't get past session zero. This opens the discussion to encounter balance, world building, and ways to get players more excited about and invested in session zero. We also talk about using session zero type questions to warm up before a game session and serve as a reminder or primer for important details. And in Class Review, we discuss the Sorcerer. Caleb has a very different opinion than the rest of the group. This leads to a deep discussion about what we like and don't like about the class and what makes it interesting. -Professor Crunch- As always, thanks for listening. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or requests for future episodes. We hope you enjoy.

Welcome to Detention, Episode 8!
1:09:42
Hello Academaniacs! Welcome to a new bonus feature on The RPG Academy, Detention!   We were so happy to hear good feedback about this bonus content that we decided to make more! In this episode, Caleb and Scott are joined by special guest Kendall from the Redemption Podcast.  As usual, these episodes are a little more rough around the edges, with less editing to reflect a more conversational tone. They also include more of the tangents, bad jokes, and adult language that we tend to use when we're hanging out and having fun. Detention is sponsored by Battle Bards! Be sure to check out their newest albums and don't forget to use our exclusive coupon code when making a purchase. In Extra Curricular, Kendall talks about preparing for Grand Con and shares a teaser about one of the games he'll be running at AcadeCon 2016. Scott goes on a shopping trip for his sister's latest wedding and forgets what he'll be doing in the wedding party. We also wax poetically about adult arcades and complain about the exchange rate of tickets to prizes. Caleb shares his struggle with preparing games, and the gang discusses why prep is difficult and ways to solve the problem. Also, last minute prep is the best minute of prep. In Used Books, Kendall shares a 3 year D&D campaign full of excitement and betrayal that ended with a shocking attack roll. The hidden secret of the monster manual is revealed, as is the truth behind what actually makes a good challenge in a game. And it is decreed that raw dungeon delving combat is the sherbet of RPGs. In Class Review, it's time to talk about the Ranger, who may or may not be the tiny dancer of D&D. Of course, focus is on the new Revised Ranger, which you can read about more about here. The boys break down the new features and get very excited about what's there. They also dig into the history of the Ranger through recent editions and talk about the aspects of the class that make it really weird. -Professor Crunch- As always, thanks for listening.
