Episode 50 - Shadowrun Recap and Season Finale

Thanks for a great season everyone! When everything that could possibly go wrong goes wrong, it helps to know that there are hundreds of folks in the world supporting the show. We'll have a long break to follow this, but we'll update the podcast feed as soon as our friends are healthy and ready to get back at it. We have a nebulous, grateful and abstract love for all of you that we don't know, and a reasonable amount of social love for those we do. Thanks for your time and ears!

Go play games!

Episode 49 - The Big Heist Goes Down (Featuring Daikaiju!)

This is it, loyal listeners! The Boiz have found themselves face to face with evil in the form of Mr. Big the Litch disguised as Mr. Big of the Sex in the City. Something fishy is going on as we begin the heist to (hopefully) end the tyrannical grasp the undead master has on our group of intrepid gamers! Thanks for being with us as we end the arc with many, many bangs. Enjoy!

This episode guest stars the music of the surf rock monsters-in-men DAIKAIJU from Huntsville, AL. They're fabulous folks who lent us their sound and their likenesses for this campaign, to killer effect, we think. Find their music here: http://daikaiju.org/

Episode 41 - Mazes and Monsters Movie Revue! (SPECIAL)

Since October is upon us, we wanted to get on in a stylish fashion by flashing back to the beginning of Sir Tom Hanks’ career and have some fun by riffing on this classically naff movie about tabletop in the heart of the Satanic Panic. You can watch Monsters and Mazes for free on Amazon Prime, whom we do not endorse in any way and are not connected with. We do not suggest that you illegally download this film from elsewhere online, in fact we tacitly deny that as a proper course of action.

Watch along with us and hear our opinions instead of Tom Hanks’ original voice! The film starts at 13:39 in the podcast. You’ll hear 3 beeps and you’ll click play on the three. This episode contains no audio from the film so we don’t get copyright blocked. If you enjoy this sort of thing, let us know at WTIIboiz@gmail.com or on Twitter @WTIICast.

We’ll be back next week with a Dungeon Delving episode to start off our next campaign series in the Shadowrun system, set in a dystopian cyber-punk Birmingham.
