With the announcement of Bloodlines 2 this week, our expected podcast took a different path. I mean, we’re mostly a V:tM podcast anyways, so this had to be pretty obvious. We talk at length about the original Vampire: the Masquerade Bloodlines and speculate up a storm in our vaguely informed manner about the new game. Also, we talk about the Captain Marvel movie as well!

Nerd Words Podcast 135.jpg

In this episode, we dish on the real Storytellers Secrets - the nightmares of storytelling/running a game. We’ve all had them and we’ve all been there. We go deep on some of the worst times we’ve had doing one of the things we love the most. In this episode, we also give a review for “Madison by Night,” a supplement for Vampire: the Masquerade.
If you came for the review only, skip ahead to 38:00 to get right to it!

Madison By Night
By Bill Bodden

"It is said that Madison is 94 square miles surrounded by reality. Honestly, though, the reality out there isn't much better than what we have in here."

  -- Chopper, Nosferatu and Keeper of Information for the Baron of Madison

Part supply depot, part library, and part fast-food joint, Madison is a one-stop shop for Anarchs looking to take over a piece of ground to call their own.

With a small permanent population of Kindred, Madison is easy to overlook but for one thing: they supply or directly support over half of the Anarch insurgencies on the North American continent.

Madison by Night includes:

  • A brief history of Madison, Wisconsin, from the early days of European immigrants and the arrival of the first Kindred to the Anarch take-over in the 1960s.

  • A listing of some of the more important Kindred-related sites in the Madison area

  • An overview of the Anarch Kindred who currently call Madison home.

Nerd Words Episode 134

Nerd Words Podcast 134.jpg

In this episode, we discuss our time away, crazy neighbors and living in new spaces, and we review the upcoming tabletop role-playing game, “They Came From Beneath the Sea!”

THEY CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA!

They Came From Beneath The Sea! is a new game encompassing the wonder, horror, thrills, and hilarity of 1950s science fiction. This game will evoke all that is great in the B-Movies of decades ago, and provides a dynamic, fun experience at the table.

Our review starts about 30 minutes into the episode, if you want to jump ahead and skip our banter. “They Came From Beneath The Sea!” is developed and conceived by Matthew Dawkins and published by Onyx Path Publishing, planned for a 2020 release.

Note: There were some issues on the back end of the recording. If you find some parts of the podcast slightly disjointed, I am aware of those audio issues. I did my best to edit the podcast into a cohesive episode. Thanks for your patience if it’s a little jarring in some spots.
