You have walked this path many times in your life. The woods know you, and you, in turn, know the woods. The path you take has been worn thin from years of use. So many years, in fact, that you could easily traverse this path blindfolded.

However, this day, it seems, would be different.

Deep within your own thoughts, you trip over a large rock that has never been on this path before. Curious, you inspect the strange obstacle closer. The rock appears to be just that… A normal rock. Yet, as you pick it up, it feels warm to the touch despite the rather cold fall weather that is normal for this time of year.

Suddenly, your mind goes quiet. All thought ceases, and you hear one singular voice within your own mind. A deep, raspy voice. A voice not your own…

“You have found me, traveler. Ask of me your wish, that my destiny may finally be fulfilled… And that your destiny may begin.”

As the voice fades from your mind, you hear the snapping of twigs off of the path proper. As you turn to look for the source of the sound, you see a small band of goblins approaching, weapons drawn. Shaking with fear and excitement, you reach down at your right hip to find a short sword at your side that you don’t recall being there before. Without question, you draw your blade, light gleaning from the almost mirror-like finish. Every muscle begins to tense in your body, and you now finally realize, in this one singular moment… that your wish has been granted.

Roll for initiative.

As you could probably tell from the above, today’s episode is all about RPG’s! Returning guest Bryan and first time guest Sarah sit down with us to talk about role playing games!

We start out by talking about our first experiences with RPG’s ( Dungeons and Dragons seems to have been the popular first) and then we touch on MMO’s and if they really fit into the genere of RPG’s!

Enjoy part one!

If you have ever attended a Pandora Promotions event in and around the Cincinnati area, chances are you have probably seen or have met Derpy Derpaceratops. That cute little stuffed Triceratops with the one droopy horn who has a wicked fashion sense!

In 2007, I discovered a game called Eve Online. I played for a while, made some friends, then quit. Back in 2010, I got back into playing it again. I played for about a year or so, then I quit… Again. I started to play off and on for a while. I made new friends through the game.

Yes, I said friends.

One of those friends I even interviewed for our podcast… Dark Knight666 (DK) for Episode 3. (more…)
