Grab some marshmallows and sticks; it's time to roast up some spooky, scariness!
Strange things abound as Jon, Ruby, Tim, Calvin, and Brooklyn talk about the strange and weird in gaming! Josh Gremillion joins us for the PFS Report to add to the weirdness as well, and talks about CONtraflow in Louisiana (9/30 - 10/2/16).

In this episode we talk about conventions, conventions, and more conventions! Toast is still at Kobold Kon, and runs into some gnomes who teach him what it means to be a “gnomie.” Del Collins comes on for the first official episode of the “Unnamed PFS Segment with Del.” Got a name for it? Let us know and Del will give you something neat!
Also, our goal is to get 200+ Facebook likes, and tons of Twitter followers before SCARAB 2017. We hit this goal, magic things will happen. I can’t stress that enough.

Friends Don’t Let Friends Watch LOST – by MC Lars [01:39:52]
Anybody can put out a podcast two to three weeks after Gen Con. It takes real guts, though... ok, fine... I was busy... Anyway, here is the Gen Con Wrap Up from three of the SCARAB Swarm that worked our butts off @ GenCon 2015.
In this episode, Jon, Clayton, Cristin, and Jason recorded some stuff about Free RPG Day, Game Days, and a Quickstart review of Night's Black Agents. And then Toast had to try and edit the whole thing.... no easy task when Frank Zappa stops by to narrate. Oh, and there's a surprise post credit ending of Ant Man and Wasp beating up Ultron or something. Stick around, it's pretty "cool." See... I put quotes in there...
To all you fathers out there: Happy Father's day! In this episode, Ruby and I talk about our dads, gaming, and music.. The Sons of SCARAB (not to be confused with the Sons of Anarchy, but close enough) say a few things about their dads as well: Brian Gambrell, Del Collins, Matt Polkowsky, and Clayton Harbaugh.
In this mammoth episode, Ruby and I catch up with SCARAB fans Jo and Sarah at XCon, having just seen them at Gnome Con. I then sit down with Clay at Con Carolinas, where we are joined by Hayden (his son), and con guests Nick and Jenn. Topics range from gaming, Muppets, Star Trek NG re-casts, to what our favorite Friends episode is. A few surprise guests stop by to talk about Death Staxxx and pork chop sandwiches.
Con zombies at a camp! Fish will be hurt and some frogs may die.
