  1. Hmm since it’s a Q&A episode: has DnDBrian ever played craps in a casino? Do his, umm, “dice tendencies” carry over into other dice-based games? :)

  2. Simon Chambers on

    Thanks for answering the question about what podcasts you listen to. I’ve got several new ones on my ipod now ;)

  3. I was so overjoyed to hear Brian mention Fear the Boot. I was in my car shouting “yes! Brian’s a booter! Brian’s a booter!” FtB is my all-time favorite RPG podcast… after Critical Hit (and that’s not pandering :P)

  4. Since the question of online play came up again in this mailbag, I am posting here again about RPGTO and GTO

    RolePlaying Game Table Online is a great place for some online D&D. It was formerly run by WotC as their VT, GTO (Game Table Online, the developers of it) picked it up when wotc dropped it, and have made vast improvements. I’ve been playing and running regular games on it since wotc put it out in their Beta phase, and it’s the only online tool I’ll use for D&D (I am even currently planning a Cyberpunk 2020 game on it too, with some tweaks)

    The link to find the table, and create a free account are here

    It has it’s own voice client, is currently formatted for 4e D&D. Has the Dungeon, Wilderness, and City master tilesets available for free, as well as a selection of PC and Monster tokens.

    Other tiles and tokens are available to be purchased. If you have DDI tools, or the offline character builder still, you can export characters to your Computer, and then import them to the table from there.

    There is a section in the GTO forums

    And we currently have an IRC chat set up so if you have questions, need help with the table, etc, you can always pop in and speak with the natives.

    There is also a tutorial on Youtube for both Players and DMs, recorded by one of our long term players (the DM tutorial needs a little work, but it is servicable until it can be touched up)…0.0…

    Look forward to seeing anyone interested in online D&D there!


  5. Regarding the person who was having problems with getting the podcast without an apple device; if you have any newish smartphone then you should be able to get an app that allows you to subscribe to this (and other) podcasts. I have a Nokia Lumia 800 and had problems listening to the podcasts as they only seemed to load 1/10 times when using the direct download link, getting an RSS podcast app fixed all my problems. The one I use is called Podcast Bandit.

    If you have an older phone or an .mp3 player then I’m not sure what the problem is as all the podcasts have a direct download link here.
