Time to break out the alcohol and the tin foil hats, because it’s Friday, y’all! Join your hosts Matt, Robert, and The David as they lay down some cold, hard truth(?) on how the world really works when it comes to conspiracy theories, slacking on the job, punk-show income inequality, and all other manner of nonsense. Get ready to have your brain wiped after this week’s episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
It’s hot as balls here in SoCal, but we pushed through the pain, sweat, and bat-wings to bring you, our awesome listening audience, another episode. We’ve got a little bit of everything from this week, from Matt getting his Disco on to Robert loving the best of the worst of the best food ever, all brought to you in Robert and Matt’s classic fashion of stuttering, pauses, and straight up misinformation. Prepare to be amazed as you tune in for a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
Articles abound these days about the buzz that is DnD Next. From analysis of the core rules to speculations about the future, every play-tester has their opinion and each one is valid in its own right. Yes, I truly believe that. Wizards of the Coast’s modular approach to this iteration of the most popular roleplaying game in history shoots to please as many fans as possible. Wow – that’s a hefty goal, especially in this incredibly heterogeneous hobby of ours. What I don’t want to examine is the current rules or plans for DnD Next; how could I? I don’t have 20+ years of experience in game design, so I won’t tweak or nitpick where my nose doesn’t belong. Rather, I’d like to look into DnD Next only so far as it’s impact on me and then zoom out to provide some insight into how these circumstances might translate to play-test groups across the world.
