Geekery in General 268: Gaming in the Backrooms

January 28, 2021 @ 11:37 pm

"If you're not careful and no-clip out if reality in wrong areas, you'll end up in the backrooms, where it's nothing but the stink of moist carpet, the madness of mono-yellow, and endless background noise of fluorescent lights at maximum hum-buzz, and approximately six hundred million square miles of randomly segmented empty rooms to be trapped in.

God save you if hear something wandering around nearby, because it sure as hell has heard you…"

These words describe the Backrooms, a terrifying maze that has captured the imagination of creepypasta and horror fans all over the internet. Al and Chad discuss ways to run a role playing game campaign in this mysterious place.

Geekery in General 267: Gaming in the Age of COVID

January 19, 2021 @ 9:00 pm

To say the year 2020 changed the world would be an understatement. But through all the chaos, confusion, and coronavirus the dice continued to roll. With a COVID vaccine finally rolling out health experts believe there might be a light at the end of the tunnel. We can't say for certain when things will get back to normal, but it is safe to say that it will be a few months.

In this episode Al, Scott, and Chad discuss how COVID and social distancing impacted their gaming habits and how we continued to participate in the hobby we love.
