Episode 31 – building story

To save myself the weekly struggle of presenting our show notes in prose form, I’m going to start using a more traditional, bulleted format.  This episode continues our series on RPG design. * A big thanks to our listeners for their support during the episode 30 problems. * Guilty gaming habits. * The best character […]

Episode 30 – player-character roles

To follow-up on our open letter in the previous episode, we’re happy to announce the show is back on track and doing well!  However, based on the suggestion of several listeners, FTB will now be released on Wednesdays instead of Mondays. Continuing our game design series, we spend most of this episode talking about the […]

Bonus Episode 11 – an open letter, Australian candy, and world cuisine

One of our forum users, Crafterofcode, sent us a box of Australian candies.  We spend this bonus episode sampling the candy and discussing international food. We also bring Tex back via Skype, since he spent several years living in Europe.  This was a great opportunity for us to test recording with Skype, which is something […]

Episode 29 – designing your game’s feel

Our Xbox Live contest continues for another week.  Don’t forget to enter again, using the “Contest Entry Form” link at the top of our site.  Also, we forgot to mention it during the episode, but we’ve made a slight change to the rules.  We realize Christmas time is drawing near, so if you don’t have […]

Bonus Episode 10 – AI and storytelling in video games

Since Tex was in town, we decided to do a bonus episode on video games.  In this show, we talk about storytelling and artificial intelligence. If this is your first time here, we suggest checking out a regular episode first!  Bonus episodes are neither on the same subject as our regular shows nor edited the […]

Episode 28 – first steps of game design

Congratulations to Keith Curtis, winner of our Baron von Bad Ass art contest!  Thanks again to all of you that entered.  We were really impressed by the quality of the entries. During this show, we kick off our Xbox Live contest.  The prizes and rules are explained in the episode.  You can find the entry […]

Episode 27 – RPG movies

We recorded this episode immediately after watching the two Dungeons & Dragons movies.  We spend the first half of the episode reviewing those two films before we broaden the topic to talk about RPG movies in general.  We toss out some games we’d like to see made into movies and theorize about why there haven’t […]

Episode 26 – character-related issues

We start this episode with a bad player habit that we missed in our previous two shows.  After that, we take on a series of topics related to character creation: unlisted perks and penalties, restricting races and classes, obscure supplements that can wreck games, and player illustrations. Also, don’t forget the Baron von Badass art […]

cardiac stress test

This is normally a pretty light-hearted show, however, not everything in life is a joke. Heart disease is the number one killer in the developed world, and we at FTB want to do our part to help.  We would like to release the following PSA that has a simple — yet important — test you […]
