I love to create both Player Characters and Non-Player Characters as I feel that the individuals that populate game worlds are as important (if not moreso) than the game world itself. The rest of the group has verbalized many, many, many times that I can get so wrapped up in my affinity for creating that it often gets in the way of actually playing a table-top RPG. Be that as it may, I know that I am first and foremost a player, so this week, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite creations – past, present, and in limbo.
With the meteoric success of The Walking Dead and the subsequent weekly zombie vacuum left on Sunday nights, we here at the podcast (and most everyone else out there in pop-culture land) can’t seem to get enough of the rotting, cannibalistic dead come to f*ck up the humdrum routine of society. Joining us this week are two very special guests – actor/writer and voice of Red Dead Redemption’s Bill Williamson, Steve J. Palmer as well as comic artist Guy LeMay, creator of Z-Blade XX, Zombie Headhunter, and The Entity Knights – as we discuss zombie movies, games, and the genre in general. Stock up on supplies, shine up your bullets, and pay attention because you’re going to want to change your zombie apocalypse plan after listening to this week’s episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Have you ever wanted to completely expand your gaming horizons, but never really had the courage to? Well, you’re not alone! Join us this week as the Monkey in the Cage crew brainstorms over all manner of gaming and storytelling ideas we have yet to face. We’ve got a little bit of everything to pique your gamer curiosity. While all the ideas may not be new or untested, they sure are strangers to us! So, shine up your non-genre specific armor, ready your temporarily indiscernible weapon, and prepare your as yet determined dice and /or card-like implement as we delve into this week’s discussion on unique gaming ideas!
