Jordan here. So, the last episode of the main campaign was a bit of a cliffhanger. So, it’s awkward switching gears and doing something different. But it’s something we have to do for the time being.
The big reason is that there’s been a lot of timing issues that has made it tough for us to record all together in a group. For example, I recently started going to school again in the hopes of transitioning into a full-time ministry career. Other members of the group have been attending classes as well, and one is dealing with unemployment. So, all in all, we’re finding it hard to meet together.
To make scheduling a bit more flexible, I’ve decided to table the main campaign for a while. We all want to see it finish out. But to be honest, this is our hobby; real life has to take precedent.
Instead, we’re going to run a series of one-shots for a while. This will allow us to have special guests and try new systems, which should be fun. I’ve talked with a few people, and it looks like we’re going to have some guest GMs to show us some different things. Also, we might be able to beta test a new game a local designer has been working on.
Thanks so much for your patience. We love sharing our adventures with you, and it’s always great to see when positive feedback comes through. If you have a system you’d like to see us try, please let us know! We’d be glad to take a look.
Without further ado, here’s our first episode of our new one-shot miniseries! We decided to go with something familiar, Fiasco. This time, we’re playing the Dragon Slayers playset, with the Living Dead addon. Hope you enjoy it.
Time for this week’s episode of Bone Throwers Theater! We hope you’ve been enjoying the new format. Jeremy’s been doing a bang-up job editing these episodes. That means that they’re a bit shorter than they were in Season One, but we hope you like the sound effects. If so, or if you find them distasteful, let us know. We’d love to hear your feedback.
The battle concludes, with nearly disastrous results. Edrick tests samples, and they find that the French Flu is spreading. Willis has a conversation with several of his fellow soldiers. Dran wants the list of the infected.
Welcome to the official kick-off to season two of the Terra Proximus campaign!
As soon as you hit play you’ll be able to tell, there’s been some changes in the sonic approach. Jeremy has graciously volunteered to help out with editing duties. If I may say so, he’s doing an awesome job. Be sure to give him all the well-deserved kudos.
A second announcement: We are now being syndicated! Bone Throwers Theater, along with the other offerings from Nerd Circle Podcast Productions, have been picked for syndication by Renagade Radio. We’re really excited to be joining their line-up, and honored that they’ve asked us to be a part of what they do.
On this episode, Dran calls a meeting with Edrick, Orion, and Dan Jindall, suggesting everyone gets re-tested. Aurora and Burned Tail share some knowledge about the True Hive and a new foe. Miranda responds poorly to her first sight of Willis. Dran makes a reconciliation.
In this final episode of the GADCon merriment, Blue Scorpion infiltrates Dock-tor Eeevil’s lair, Blayne finds his frat dissolved, and Bryce works to bring a team together to stop Dock-tor Eeevil’s mayoral run. We wrap up the game with the final montage.
Bryce gets kicked out from a “resort.” It’s been found out that Bryce has auto-brewery syndrome. Dr. Reece gets re-instated after the college realizes he had been framed. Stephanie nearly wakes up with a marker mustache. And we meet… Dock-tor Eeevil!! Dark Star attempts to assemble a team to take on Doctor Evil, but his appeals fall on black dice…
After the misadventure in the Hell Dimension, Blue Scorpion goes to Bryce for help, who contacts Phase. She learns how to control her powers. Blayne and Bryce stage a break-in to Dr. Reece’s basement, where they try to make more clones. The results, dictated by a black die, are not exactly what they intend.
Phase has decided to rescue Blayne from the asteroid the “physicist” has banished him to. He shifts the Little does he know that Dark Star is trying to push the asteroid out of the path of the world. As they discuss Jeremy’s next scene, the group gets an epic case of the giggles. The Blue Scorpion beats up a houseful of frat boys. While rescuing Dark Star from the hell dimension, Blue Scorpion’s identity is revealed to her boss.
On this episode, Bryce decides it’s time to be a superhero. So, he’s tracking down a bank robbery as a buffalo. And then the tilt! The professor teleports Blayne to an asteroid, and Johnny has the gang plot his first post-tilt scene.
In this episode of BTT, Dark Star and the Blue Scorpion meet for the very first time. Mike Dunnich, AKA Officer Beverage of the First GADCon Fiasco, stops by to get beat up. Blue Scorpion and Blayne meet in the graveyard to remember lost love… with disastrous results. Blayne begins making money by using his powers and throws a fantastic frat party.
The high-power hijinks continue as the professor goes to the Double-D’s used cars to find the Blue Scorpion. Cars randomly explode in the parking lot, there are attestations that ladies will not be touched, and hilarity ensues. Also, Phase’s secret identity is discovered!
On this, the second episode of the second annual GAD-Con Fiasco special, the gang continues selecting the needs, objects, and locations. They also discuss what their relationships are. While people are pondering the prospects, the rest of the crew jokes and pontificates on a wide variety of topics. These include, but are not limited to:
In this episode, Carlin updates bear-bating to the 21st century standard: nerd baiting. That’s right, he’s asked Jordan to talk about comic book movies. Specifically, the Avengers. The guys cover the ins-and-outs of this epitome of the modern marvelous summer blockbuster, from acting strengths and cool special effects to plot holes and pacing problems. And the ratings may skew differently than you expected.
Carlin’s Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Jordan’s Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
Overall Rating: 3.0 out of 5 Stars
Earlier this month, the Bone Throwers Theater crew made their yearly migration to White Marsh Maryland to take part in the second Annual GADCon. We had an awesome time this time around, continuing out tradition of playing Fiasco. This time around, we chose Heroes of Pinnacle City. In this episode, we discuss everything from superhero movies (specifically, The Avengers), to Jordan and Carlin’s shared obsession for the anime series Space Dandy, and gorilla-elephant-centaurs. Enjoy!
Our special flashback series continues. Today, we look at the major events of Miranda’s life pre-mission and find out just what happened that sent her plummeting to earth on a suicide mission. Hope you enjoy!
