Welcome to our fourth full session of Actual Play Old School RPG!  Join our team of intrepid adventurers as they take on Orcs, unmade beds and thousands of doors using Palladium’s Fantasy RPG, 1st Edition.

In this episode, we encounter more orcs than you can shake a pointed stick at.  We uncover a potential enemy in a human who appears to be scheming with those same orcs.  We also uncover a lot of beds, finding out just what orcs do in there.  Our GM was viciously attacked by an 8 lb. house cat.  Lastly, we meet our match in a human/orc mixed group who manage to kill one of our own, which caused us to get rich.

Our team

Scott: GM

Ben: Hamish Snozzle (3rd level Elf Wizard and food collector) and Heretofor Unamed (3rd level Assassin and lover of large, pointy things).

Dan: Mukkluk (3rd level Kobold Mind Mage, recently deceased).

Jenn: Echo (3rd level Human Warlock and potentially evil fireball slinger).

The oscar award winning moments

  • The party kill a significant percentage of the Orc population.
  • But leave the kitchen staff alone, in case They’re feeling peckish.
  • The party find out that human/orc relations are deteriorating except between several, special friends.
  • The Kobold finds yet another secret door.
  • The party discovers a graveyard in a sub-dungeon, after fighting off a band of walking dead.
  • The Kobold meets his maker.
  • They all get rich.
  • The party collects the largest bits of the Kobold in preparation for Episode 5.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG.

Welcome to our third full session of Actual Play Old School RPG! Join our team of intrepid adventurers as they take on Orcs and Ogres using Palladium’s Fantasy RPG, 1st Edition.

In this episode, we get jumped by a pig. With a stinger! Then we talk a bunch of highly trained, heavily armed troops in to letting us scout for them. In our scouting mission, we kill giant wolves with knives, open a bunch of doors and accidentally bypass the majority of the dungeon.
Our team

Scott: GM

Ben: Hamish Snozzle (3rd level Elf Wizard) and Heretofor Unamed (2nd level Assassin, almost good creeper).

Dan: Mukkluk (3rd level Kobold Mind Mage and Pole arm Tosser).

Jenn: Echo (Human Warlock and Not-worg impaler).

The check mix

  • The party was assaulted by some sort of pig/scorpion hybrid.  We won.
  • We stood aside as 60 armed knights rode past.  They talked to us and somehow we ended up richer, and walking 50 kilometers to reconnoiter a keep.
  • Before they reached the keep, they got jumped by orcs riding wolves.  The warlock casts her first spell of the game, and then impales several wolves with sharp, pointy things.
  • The spellcasters level up.  Fireball becomes an option.
  • They open doors.
  • They then bypass a good chunk of the dungeon thus giving our GM fits.

Episode 6 – Back in the bowl

Wow! It’s been quite some time since we’ve gotten a new episode up. That’s the bad news. The good news is we have this one here now, and two more in the can waiting to be edited and published!

In this episode, we encounter a troupe of dancing mystical midgets, acquire their bowl of extraordinary power and find out why mom always said not to play ball in the house. Someone has the audacity to try and ambush us using trees. Our mage comes <—-> that close to joining our once deceased kobold, and then we wander into a city and paint it red.

What’s going on here?

We’re playing the Palladium Fantasy RPG (1st edition, thank you very much) and enjoying the hell out of it. No maps, no minis, no censors, almost no editing!  We’ve been recording our sessions for your enjoyment.  You can find us on iTunes or DriveThruRPG, along with other podcasts in the Old School series, or visit the links below to download individual episodes.

Our Team

Scott: GM

Ben: Hamish Snozzle (3rd level Elf Wizard) and Heretofor Unamed (3rd level Assassin).

Dan: Mukkluk (3rd level Kobold Mind Mage, formerly alive).

Jenn: Echo (Human Warlock and suddenly spellcaster).

Also, grab it from iTunes!

Thanks to the diligent and hard work of Scott, our technical vizier and GM, we’ll have three new episodes of the OSAP podcast coming to you in the somewhat near future.  Scott is diligently editing Episode 6 at the moment, with Ep 7 and Ep 8 not that far behind.

As always, this podcast will be available here and at iTunes.

Once these episodes are released, we’ll be caught up and have to play again to produce more interesting content and new swear words.  As always, this podcast will be NSFW.

Welcome to our fifth full session of Actual Play Old School RPG!  Join our team of intrepid adventurers as they take on Orcs and Ogres using Palladium’s Fantasy RPG, 1st Edition.

In this episode we meet a swarm of nasty, cute, fuzzy things that try and kill us with the death of a thousand cuts.  Then we cheat a priest out of 6,000 gold pieces while buying new armor.  Our kobold pulls a resurrection act and rejoins the podcast. We get a boat, all to ourselves.  Then we immolate 6 ex-villagers after placing a gigantic ice wall in their way and shooting them full of arrows.  Good times.

Ben: Hamish Snozzle (3rd level Elf Wizard) and Heretofor Unamed (3rd level Assassin).

Dan: Mukkluk (3rd level Kobold Mind Mage, formerly alive).

We’re back!  Welcome to our Old School, Actual Play Mini-cast!  This is a 22:25 mini-cast, in which Scott and I get together to chat about old school RPGs vs newer systems.

What’s good about Palladium FRPG 1st edition?  What about D&D 4.0, or 3.5?  Pathfinder? And just why does Savage Worlds rub Scott the wrong way?  Find out the answers to these burning questions and a bunch more as we sit down to chat.  And did he just say MMORPG?

Other topics we talk about:  Print on Demand, is it the way of the small press RPG?  What about licensing titles – worth it?  Just how far uphill, through snow, both ways did Ben walk to the high school RPG sessions?  What it is like being a small press outfit publishing only PDFs, and when will the whole crew be playing Old School again?

Scott is our GM in our old school Palladium Fantasy RPG 1st edition campaign, and Ben plays a wizard, and a slightly drowned assassin.

Listen to this podcast right here, on iTunes or through Drive Thru RPG!
