Join as as we get a special announcement about Hull Breach, the Podcast Mania recording from SCARAB, and news on events SCARAB members will be attending!
The first part of our recordings from SCARAB. Jim Ryan wandered by Saturday night, the mic was cut on, and a veritable cavalcade of folks walked by to add to the crazy convention conversations!
Seasons Greetings! Sit back and enjoy this short and very sweet episode. We talk to some folks at King Con, then sit down to talk about some of our favorite gaming food and give out some tasty recipes to bring to the gaming table.
In this episode, Mary and Clay join Ruby and I to discuss the Open RPG Gaming Track at SCARAB 2016... then Del shows up and starts talking about Pathfinder Society, makes a few announcements, talks about SCARAB's PFS, Board Game, Miniatures, LARP, Widows', and Kid's tracks... then Ruby talks about the Media Room track... heck! I jump on board as well. I guess this is the episode to listen to for you SCARAB 2016 preview-y goodness!
Oooh! It's a spooky, spooky night! Just listen to this show of spine-chillingness!

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.
Day 2 of SCORPION Gamer Camp. Candid stuff, D&D5, and goblins by bonfire!
Check out some very candid audio from the very first SCORPION Gamer Camp brought to you by SCARAB!
Welcome to a new season, and a new sound for us!
Welcome back to another episode recorded live at SCARAB 5. Included on this episode, a cavalcade of guests!
Part 1 of episodes recorded live at SCARAB 5, 2015.
In this episode, I talk with Ruby about our experience with a two-player game we've been running using Pathfinder: Mythic Adventures as well as other pros and cons of two-player games.
So, I am literally preparing to leave for yet another convention even as this episode drops! Please excuse some of the noise, this was recorded live at the past couple of SCARAB Game Days at Firefly Toys and Games. Still, pretty good sound quality, huh?
Here's a little something something, we'll call it a treat, or maybe some would say a trick. Anyway, it's something to listen to to get you through your day.
Got to hang out with Kat and Doc from Mind's Eye Society. Check them out at http://www.mindseyesociety.org/ and check out their events at SCARAB 2015 on Warhorn!
GenCon is the best four days in gaming, and the SCARAB Swarm was there! What better way to celebrate that than with an extra-sized episode!
