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.

  1. Just a note that I think your iTunes thing isn’t working. I wasn’t able to find it. But, I will look again tomorrow.

  2. Any chance of this appearing on the Zune Marketplace? I get Major Spoilers there, so it would be nice if I could get this there too.


  3. Hey, tried the iTunes link throughout the day and it isn’t working. I also can’t find it on iTunes by searching for it. Thanks, I’m looking forward to listening to this.

  4. Direct Download worked for me okay (thanks for the episode, btw :) )

    Just the iTunes link isn’t working and I so desperately wanted to subscribe to the podcast. ;)

  5. @ Stephen I was actually saying that because it was downloading while I was typing, but thanks for the info on iTunes

  6. tx for the episode guys it was nice to see torq and friends return, got me through a very long work day. Here’s to a long and entertaining adventure.

  7. The subscribe through Itunes doesn’t seem to work through Firefox but worked with Safari and Explorer. Hope this helps

  8. Loving the podcasts! A request, if I may. Would you mind going over the dice rolls and the numbers? I may have missed when you discussed what it means to roll a 12 v a “natural one”, etc. Thanks! I would appreciate it.

    Keep it up!

  9. I’m enjoying these podcasts a lot, and would play in Rodrigo’s game any time.

    One bit of an FYI that I noticed while they were fighting the bug things: for Area Attacks (like Stephen’s Scorching Burst), you roll to hit individually for every possible target in the area, and then only roll damage once. So in this case, Stephen should have rolled separately for each of the bugs in his burst, and not just hit them all on a 19.

    Happy gaming!

  10. Torq might try using javalins as a distance weapon. They have a strength modifier unlike most things you can throw and they do a reasonable amount of damage. Great podcast. Like the drawings of the characters very much.

    And about your wizards only game, check out Gamers Haven Wizards College, a 3.5 campaign with all multiclass wizards of various kinds. Seems like an interesting idea and the game sounds like a lot of fun.

  11. Really enjoying this campaign. Just stumbled across it and god it takes me back
    Thanks guys. Subscribed
    Please excuse the necropost

  12. found this podcast on accident and thanks to my OCD nature i have well over 220 hours of D&D magical wonder ahead of me…this is going to take me a while to get through.
