Moving on….in a good way.

I want to thank the small crew here at Collective Idiocy for helping encourage me to podcast, but now its time to move to a new home. We needed that RSS feed, that extra step to getting a larger fanbase, and that crucial ability to read stats and accept comments.  So the Guides are moving on.

We’re on iTunes now, we’re on Podbean now, and we won’t be further updating this site.

Thank you for accepting my work into the group project, and I hope if I made any real followers here, that you’ll join me at the new site, and don’t be afraid to say hello, or to provide comments.

As for me, the Guides are off to explore another corner of the Megaverse(tm)

2018-02-04 – Robotech – Lemming Squadron

the-predator-predator-4-officially-wrapped-filming-today-55If it bleeds……why isn’t it bleeding?

Caught in a clusterstrophe now, Black Sheep Squadron has crash landed behind enemy lines. This new foe, the Invid, worries the Captain, and its only a matter of time before they’re besieged.

The survivors/and or new characters of the squadron are then immediately tasked to secure a comms tower that has saboteur action within it, and the foe within has proven invisible to all sensors….

In a word: It was Two Hours, and we immediately talked about it for 45 minutes.

 

Finally the DC film meant to help put it on par with Marvel has arrived.  We’ve seen it, and we try to approach film with a gamer point of view.  Here are our thoughts.

10-28 10-29 – Black Cat Double Feature!

blackcat

Okay given our track record, I finally see why people call us infamous.

As we work to get things in order to move to a new home, as well as dealing with moving to a bi-weekly schedule for a bit, the Black Cats get called into action for two whole games!

Our good friend Jeff ran a game for the Cats, you may remember him from some very early games on the podcast, we’re hoping to have him back more often.  In this first game, he sets the stage across the pond in the US!  The first time most of these Cats have been over there stateside,

04_13_17 – Cascade – Deeper

vatDare you to taste it!

 

The Heroes of Cascade (possibly known as Team Overwatch, they haven’t decided) are still up in the air about the mysterious vat that was being auctioned off earlier in the week.  With 56 near death, the rest of the team finds themselves beset with those close to them with needs that hit closer to home.  And yet the vat’s threat looms still…

01_29_17 – The New Warriors – Endless Dark

517-Century-Station-for-HU-2nd-Ed

 

The Nightlords’ plan to bring forth Dark Day is quite possibly the most chilling, and dangerous event the New Warriors had ever endeavored to stop.  The team considers themselves only ‘city protectors’, since the Centurions departure, the small group know they need a great deal of assistance to even attempt this resistance.  All the deals, all the back alley negotiations and favors are called in as the team assembles their strike into the core of the Nightlands…

10_8_16 – Dead Reign – End of the Road

dead_reign_rpg_2008Of all the books to never open in a horror game, we chose not to open the actual core book!

 

In the month of October, we play Dead Reign for a while.  In a land just after the apocalypse started, we don’t know much about what we’re facing, we don’t know where to go, and we have no tools to do it.  For added investment, we’ve been given two things:  The inability to look at the book of Dead Reign, so we can’t magically understand what we’re fighting, and two: An EXP Bounty for everyone we manage to save in the NPC group.   Its a difficult game, full of the worst sorts of choices, where society has already collapsed and the living dead are almost impossible to kill.

Characters:
A former veterinarian student doomsayer, a fast as lightning truck driver, a Cajun that’s unintelligible, and a Russian anarchist cook, with an apparent grudge against the US Military…

6/19/16 – Robotech – Repelling Action

robotechBad enough when someone sideswipes you on the road…

Just as the Kill-Bunnies (as part of Vermillion Squadron) manage to complete a daring assault on Miriya Quadrano’s ship, in a daring mission to remove the dangerous Female Zentradi from the war, the inevitable counterattack occurs within hours.   The wily and unpredictable Khyron has returned, spacefolding his own cruiser up into the side of the SDF-1, and launching a major boarding party into Macross itself.

 

With the K-Bunnies back in their Destroids, the hardest part is the wait to be called in.  Family is threatened, Daniel Tosh makes an appearance again, and someone in the group can’t roll over a goddamned 4!  The SDF’s resources are strained to the breaking point, but its at times like these that only tactics and luck can win the day…

Godspeed, K-Bunnies.
