  Episode 25 – common player mistakes, part 2

Episode 25 – common player mistakes, part 2

Before digging into the episode, we mention two art-related things.  First, there’s an art contest for drawing Baron von Badass.  If you want to enter, you can find the relevant information here: http://feartheboot.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1004.  Second, I mention that I’m looking for artists for character portrait commissions.  It’s something I’m doing over the longterm due to cost, […]

Episode 24 – common player mistakes, part 1

As a follow-up to our previous episode on GM mistakes, we spend this episode talking about bad player habits.  We had too many points to cover, so this is part 1 of 2. Hosts: Chad, Dan, Dawn

Episode 23 – common GMing mistakes

We kick off the episode with a story about our trip to a hibachi restaurant.  When it’s time to discuss roleplaying games, we begin with a look at what sort of person wants to be a GM.  We then work through a list of common GMing mistakes and how to avoid them. Hosts: Adam, Chad, […]

Episode 22 – live from Archon

We recorded this episode live in the gaming area of the Archon sci-fi, fantasy, and gaming convention.  If this is your first time listening, this episode is not recorded or presented in the way we normally do a show.  You may want to check out a normal recording (like episode 21) first. We devoted this […]

Episode 21 – foreshadowing and in-fighting

We’d like to remind everyone FTB will be at Archon this Thursday – Sunday, so if you’re going to be near the St. Louis area, please stop by and say, “hi!”  In addition to our panels and guest interviews, our FTB ladies will be running a HAFU event to protest the Zombie Squad’s treatment of […]

Episode 20 – Shaken not Stirred

You should quickly realize this episode isn’t quite right.  This is part of a promotion that’s being done between a dozen gaming podcasts.  One week in September, each show will be run by the hosts of a different show.  The strangers you’re hearing on Fear the Boot are Mick and Rae from  Misfit Brew.  In […]

Episode 19 – evil player characters

Before every show, we go through a dysfunctional routine which we describe at the start of this episode.  We also talk about the market penetration of podcasts in the gaming community and one of the few fixtures of gaming life we haven’t yet discussed: junk food! Our main topic is evil characters and evil parties, […]

Bonus Episode 8 – good things gone wrong

Just as I promised on the forums, here’s a bonus episode to go hand-in-hand with episode 18! We intended to make this bonus episode about our take on where Battletech went wrong.  However, we ended up on so many tangents that the show is really more about where creative endeavors in general go wrong. As […]

Episode 18 – card games and electronic devices

In this show we cover some fond memories of FASA product catalogs, name the winner of our “freak show” character contest, offer our thoughts on card games, kick around some settings we wish had their own roleplaying games, and offer our thoughts on the use of electronic devices to aid your games. Hosts: Chad, Dan, […]

Episode 17 – playing in an established setting

I want to remind everyone of the contest we’re running right now.  You can find details in this episode, the show notes for episode 16, or our forums. Continuing a topic we started in bonus episode 7, we spend some time talking about spaceship combat in roleplaying games.  Then we offer some insight and advice […]
