Episode 16 - Showcase Session 1

Welcome back to the Gaming With Gage, your podcast for roleplaying games and the periphery.

 

 

Thank you for being here for the finale of our first season. It’s been such a wonderful experience and I’m so grateful for all of the positive feedback we’ve received. I’ve had the opportunity to chat with some of my favorite creators about my favorite topics and I’ve been able to share that with you. It’s truly been my pleasure.

 

For the Season Finale we’re going to actually be Gaming With Gage. For some of our listeners who are completely new to gaming, who have reached out with questions, you have been heard. Hopefully this brief Actual Play with fan favorite and my wife, Amanda Verronneau, will give you a snapshot of what tabletop roleplaying game can be.  In this showcase you’ll hear Amanda’s character, Agatha Nolan, drop into a crazy world where nothing is like it seems. You know, Boston. We used Pinnacle Entertainment Group’s Savage Worlds system for this game and if it strikes your fancy you should definitely try it out.  

 

These showcase episodes are a new thing for us so let us know what your thoughts are. If you enjoy them we may have some more in Season 2, Let us know what you think on Our Website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Discord!

Episode 15 - Showcase Session 0

Welcome back to the Gaming With Gage, your podcast for roleplaying games and the periphery. 

 

Thanks for being here.

This week we have a very special episode for you. We’ve received a bit of feedback from listeners who are completely new to gaming and a bit confused about how it works. So to cap out season 1 we decide to actually do some Gaming With Gage. To help us out with what we’re calling our Showcase Episode, we brought back one of our most popular guests, my wife Amanda Verronneau. In this episode you’ll hear us create Amanda’s character, Agatha Nolan, as well as craft the world we’re going to play in, using Pinnacle Entertainment Group’s Savage Worlds. Parts of this episode are cut together like a montage in the interest of time. Next episode, our Season Finale, will be a one session actual play with Amanda and myself. Hopefully this will be entertaining and illuminating for fans new and old.

Just so you know, Amanda was very tired and very pregnant when we recorded this. I’m so thankful to have a partner who, at 9 months pregnant and at the end of a full work week, was still willing to sit down and have play time with me. I love you Amanda and thank you.

If this Showcase  is something that sparks your interest, maybe we’ll see some more showcase episodes in Season 2, Let us know what you think on Our Website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Discord!

Episode 10 - Shannon Steele

Welcome back to the Gaming With Gage, your podcast for roleplaying games and the periphery.

 

Thanks for being here.

I wanted to take a moment to apologize for the lack of episode last week. We did record an episode but when we started editing we realize that we were missing the guest half of the recording. Unfortunately, I was out of town on business and time ran out. This was a freak accident and will not be the norm.

 

Our guest from that ruined episode was kind enough to sit down for another interview and I’m happy to say this week I spoke Shannon Steele of the Gamerstable podcast. We had a few technical difficulties but Shannon was patient enough to fight through them so we could deliver this episode.

 

We talked about Shannon’s intro to gaming, which was on a recorded actual play and her introduction to GMing. You can find Shannon on the Gamerstable podcast or on twitter @Shannon_Steele

Episode 9 - Carlos Luna Part 2

Welcome back to the Gaming With Gage, your podcast for roleplaying games and the periphery.

Thanks for being here.

This week we're jumping back into our conversation with Carlos Luna of Neon Rival, a Chicago based podcasting collective. You may know Carlos from shows such as The Dungeon Rats and Godsfall. You can find these and other shows at Neon Rival and find Carlos on Twitter @CarlosCrits

If you didn't listen to last weeks episode, I suggest you do that first. This is very much a continuation of that conversation.

We jump back in with Carlos talking about his character on Pera Rivers, on Godsfall. 

Just to remind you, there is a fair bit of adult language in this episode. I completely forgot to warn Carlos that it was a clean show and once we got going I just kind of went with it. If you’re at work or have young ears present maybe grab some headphones.

So with that out of the way let’s jump into Episode 9 - Carlos Luna Part 2

Episode 8 - Carlos Luna Part 1

Welcome back to the Gaming With Gage, your podcast for roleplaying games and the periphery.

Thanks for being here.

This week I had the opportunity to sit down with Carlos Luna of Neon Rival, a Chicago based podcasting collective. You may know Carlos from shows such as The Dungeon Rats, a 5E Dungeons and Dragons actual play podcast where fans of the show submit challenges for the party. Carlos has also recently joined Godsfall, a 5E Dungeons and Dragons actual play podcast from the mind of Aram Vartian. You can find these and other shows at Neon Rival and find Carlos on Twitter @CarlosCrits

We talked about how Carlos was introduced to roleplaying games and some of the similarities between RPGs and Improv.

Two notes about this episode before we begin. There is a fair bit of adult language in this episode. I completely forgot to warn Carlos that it was a clean show and once we got going I just kind of went with it. If you’re at work or have young ears present maybe grab some headphones.

Secondly we went very long on this episode. Carlos is easy to chat with and I found myself losing track of time. Because of that we’re going to split this into two episodes.

 

So with that out of the way let’s jump into Episode 8 - Carlos Luna Part 1
