Bob leaves. The end bumper is for him.
George Michael: Careless Whisper
Welcome to another episode of Nerd Words. In this episode, we are joined again by our special friends, Rachel and Jeff! More is always good! We talk about gaming and the obligatory White Wolf nod, a lack of personal self-control when playing video games and the perils of eating a lot of subway!
Bumper: the Toadies - Possum Kingdom
Welcome once more, you rapscallions, to another episode of Nerd Words. We are joined in the Nerd Sanctum by the grand 'caster, Jeff. ADDITIONALLY, scoundrels, we are joined by the preeminent Nerd Words associate, Katastroph3 (AKA, Chris).
We talk about the perils of vaguely being popular, personalities and Werewolf: the Forsaken. This is a rather self-indulgent episode.
Bumper: The Knife - The Captain

In this episode, we discuss the history of our storytelling, as well as our strategies when... storytelling. Thanks to Nathaniel Starr for the email and question that spurned this episode:
"So I've been reading the books and one thing the storyteller guides recommend is that you detail the city that you will be playing in. So my question is how would you go about that? The books are fairly general in what they want you to do to accomplish this. They mention mood, setting, and theme. They also talk about how you should outline the non-player characters in the city and get a rough understanding of what mortal institutions are being influenced by vampires.
But short of writing my own Las Vegas by Night book what have you found to be the best way to do this? What are some of the things you've done in the past? Do you have any tips for city design? Are there any musts or must nots? I don't want to overdo it and spend all my free time detailing the insides of casinos and stating out every pit boss, but I want the city to feel real and lived in for my players. Any advice would be much appreciated."
In this episode, we talk about ourselves and the shit we're doing! We welcome back our home dog, Jeff, to the podcast. It's all Curse of Caine, LARP and a deep dive into our own experiences being a bunch of dorks. Thanks for listening, and happy New Year!
In this episode, we jump into the Way-Back Machine to tell some tales of the LARP, the Nosferatu and how important the clan is to the relationship of the Utility Muffins.
In this episode, we talk on Sabbat nonsense, LARP, and all the perils you'll find in such ventures, terrible convention food and games, and some tips for storytelling. We mention The Punisher as well, but refrain from review.
In this episode, we discuss our feelings about Vampire Requiem, tell tales about LARP and discuss some of the deeper meaning behind gaming, LARP and CWoD - at least what WE think.

In this episode, we talk about running games in places we've never been, Kindred of the East and obviously, the fan-made Highlander: the Gathering (which we incorrectly call 'the Quickening'.) All joking aside, anyone willing to sit down and write out their own take on a favorite and popular pop-culture icon should be supported. Check it out for a helping of awesome nostalgia, here: Highlander: the Gathering
Thanks for listening!
Welcome to October, our favorite month of the year! We talk about the new Punisher trailer (and nerd out), trash Iron Fist, discuss some Vampire stuff relating to Clanbook: Ravnos and playing Malkavians.
