Episode 198 - Midnight Rogue part 8

The book said we had to go back to the beginning, but we kept all our rolls, gold and equipment. No-one said we were wrong, so it's time to get twice as much stuff before failing twice as hard.   

Episode 197 - Midnight Rogue part 7

We cave in to peer pressure and finally get on with the story, but the story has other ideas. Stupid smelly old book!

Episode 196 - Midnight Rogue part 6

"Choose three skills," says the book.  "Great," we reply, "will they be helpful in our adventure?" "Phhh. Probably...?" the book shrugs. Books lie.

Episode 195 - Midnight Rogue part 5

If you shimmy up a drainpipe you should be prepared to deal with the consequences, which in this case involve badly-written paragraphs and vague instructions. No wonder kids never played these things properly.  

Episode 194 - Midnight Rogue part 4

After Martyn's disastrous run-in with dogs and servants, Mark dons the jerkin of the Midnight Rogue. But as soon as he puts the jerkin on, will he want to take the jerkin off?

Episode 192 - Midnight Rogue part 2

More apprentice parallels this week, as we try our best to be creative but are let down by our own limited understanding of the situation, and the outcome was decided before we even started the task.

Episode 191 - Midnight Rogue part 1

Being an apprentice for the Thieves' Guild is a lot like being an apprentice for Alan Sugar. It feels like you're working towards a goal, but really it's just hours of pointless busywork before you randomly win or lose.

Episode 190 - Phantoms of Fear part 6

How much wood would a Wood Elf elf, if a Wood Elf could elf wood? That makes about as much sense as anything else that happens in this episode.

Episode 188 - Phantoms of Fear part 4

Episode 186 - Phantoms of Fear part 2

Episode 185 - Phantoms of Fear part 1

We go deep into the woods and even deeper into the subconscious mind, as we explore the dreams of a wood elf wandering around a forest in Phantoms of Fear.

We're trying to save the president but we're running out of space-future-time units and being forced to try to read a map. We all know how this one's going to end, right?

Dodgy dealers, disastrous driving and disgusting droids hamper our progress this week as we face off against several slippery customers. Really slippery. Unnecessarily slippery.

Episode 182 - Star Strider part 4

In this episode we fight a charging ROBO-BULL, a paper-pushing ADMINDROID, and a maths puzzle made for lonely ten year olds. Guess which one causes the most pain to two men in their forties...

Episode 181 - Star Strider part 3

Fresh off a victory against the legendary Kinta Lopsti, we head to see the Houlgans in search of Jose 90. This is all real stuff someone wrote in a book. And people bought it. 

Episode 180 - Star Strider part 2

Martyn picks up a Catchman and jumps on a Silverhound, looking for trouble with every lazily-written, plagiarised and barely-concealed alien race in this robo-sector of the space-future-rocket-galaxy. 

Episode 179 - Star Strider part 1

It’s time to go to the space future again as Mark becomes a Bounty Hunter, or a Rogue Tracer, or a Star Strider, or maybe all three. So prepare for zipcars instead of horses, and robots instead of goblins. See, it’s different.

Episode 175 - Crypt of the Sorcerer part 3

We grab our rod in the woods, which is less fun than it sounds. Or more fun, your mileage may vary. Either way, there's cause "fur" concern, and Martyn may not live to tell the "tail..."

Episode 174 - Crypt of the Sorcerer part 2

We continue reading the Crypt of the Sorcerer, the only fantasy book ever written containing magic rings, tree people, and thinly disguised problematic racist stereotypes.
