About Author

Stephen Schleicher began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen has freelanced for Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog, and Gizmodo. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment. You can follow him on Twitter @MajorSpoilers and tell him your darkest secrets...


  1. Man, what is it with you and Dante, Rodrigo? I’ve never heard you be so negative about somebody before. You’re always like, “Dante screwed this up” and “Dante didn’t finish that” and “Dante can’t draw milk.”

    I suspect there’s a woman at the heart of this feud.

    • We still love you Dante. If you want to come and sit in the other room with The Boy, you are welcome to do that too. I hear he screams and wets himself a lot, so you’ll have to watch your pen and paper as you draw.

  2. I’ve never played Dungeons & Dragons before, or any similar game for that matter. It has always been a mysterious secret club, but you guys have opened the door a crack to let us outsiders peek in. It’s been a lot of fun so far, and I’m looking forward to the next instalment. Thanks.

  3. I always thought when theres a drawing emergency at the Stately Spoiler Mansion, rodrigo excuses himself out and then Dante enter the room, make the sketchs, leave the room just one minute before rodrigo step in and ask “hi guys what did i miss?”, but then again usually i’m wrong 70% of the times

  4. More of this!

    Again, for some reason (laziness) I don’t think I’d ever actually participate, but I really like listening to it. I guess I sort of like “story time”. Rodrigo’s job seems EXTREMELY DIFFICULT! It seems sort of like writing on the fly which is a very impressive skill. His answers to Stephen’s questions about totally dumping the precious little stories he made are both heartbreaking and horrifying that he’s so nonplussed about losing his hard work! you can let out the pain, rodrigo. I’m concerned one day he’ll explode. Perhaps into some form of ultra-rodrigo butterfly. Of rage.

    So am I right in thinking that some of these campaigns could end in the whole party just dying if you’re really unlucky at rolling? Or are there things in place that prevent that?

  5. In 4th edition Player characters are easy to conk out, but notoriously hard to outright kill. In all the time that I’ve been running 4th ed. I’ve only had one PC die. If you consider that the bad guys are also roleplayed there’s a lot of room for being captured or someone to get away as well.

    As far as dumping my magical tales of wonder? It does hurt, it kinda sucks, but it’s worth it when I manage to land a solid game with good players.

  6. Aww, did Matthew roll a natural 20 using a greataxe, a high-crit weapon? He was robbed of dealing another d12 damage!

    Rodrigo, can you speak on how you calculate roleplaying XP rewards? As an old Palladium GM, this idea really appeals to me.

    Final thoughts, these D&D podcasts are really great; some of my favorite content from the site thus far.

  7. 4th ed. Has a real simple way of calculating XP. Basically you start out with an XP amount and ‘buy’ monsters with it. I’ll elaborate on the show.
