Mens Sana In Corpore Sano
By Secrets of the Masquerade

Follow this Coterie’s unique situation as they are struck both with incredible luck and incredible misfortune and find out the source of these bizarre events that have been plaguing their nightly lives for far too long. 

This short supplement contains an easy to adapt one shot story to any city to introduce new players to Vampire the Masquerade, alongside premade characters and a descriptive of the situation they are involved in. The scope is small and oppresive to allow for a perfect “behind closed doors” personal horror tale. Most elements were left vague to give room for the storyteller to personalize and adapt the story to their specific needs.

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!

Twitch Words

Hello fans and friends. So Friday, we decided to do some live-streaming on Twitch and record the audio to make an impromptu podcast. The below video is the result. For those of you listening on iTunes, we've included the audio without the video as well. Give a watch and a listen and let us know what you think. 

Nerd Words Episode 56

In this episode, we totally planned on talking about Q4 video game releases, which we did a little. Mostly, we talked about killing Hitler and the SwastaPuss, World War 1, race and privilege, voting with your wallet and a bunch of other random stuff. We are joined by our friends B-Wood, Derek and Pam.

Well, I wish I could tell you what we talked about when we recorded this podcast, but isn't the mystery more exciting? We probably talked about games, movies, music and tech, but maybe not. I don't know, how about you just listen to the podcast? 

Nerd Words Episode 46

In this episode, we are joined by good friend and generally well-educated person, Brandon Wood. We talk about Adult Swim, GI Joe, Nostalgia, horror movies and a bunch more. Listen to this podcast because it's entertaining. THIS I COMMAND!!!

Thanks for a great year of podcasting! In this, our anniversary show, we get drunk, talk surly and alienate everyone we love! Bob goes gaming and I have a bunch of our past guests on to talk about what the hell ever comes up. Here's to another year of fun and games!

What was going to start out as a podcast about the new port of DCU Online rapidly (and I mean from the start) devolved into a rant session about all things life and game related. We discuss jobs, video game "friends", home life, and a host of other ill-informed topics. I made a little spot at the beginning of the podcast with a few little fun extras that you haven't heard in previous podcasts. Thanks to Jeff for Skype calling without warning.

More drinking! In this episode, we stumble through a wide range of silly, silly shit. We talk about living in a simulation, we shit upon Star Wars, talk about Trump and poorly discuss racism in movies. A ton more is trampled on to sometimes humorous effect. 

Nerd Words Throw Down 1

Here are the topics for the first episode of the podcast:

1. What is the worst video game franchise?

2. what is the worst sequel to a great movie?

3. What popular musician of the last ten years should be stricken from history?

4. What is the best Horror movie?

5. What was the best FPS of 2015?

6. What is the most over-rated TV show?

RULES OF THE GAME

Three challengers face off in the debate for the ages.

Each contestant will be asked a question and will have 2 minutes to assert his position.

After each contestant states his position, the argument phase will begin. In the argument phase, each contestant will have 30 seconds to ask any fair, clear question that has a direct bearing on the debate. The questioner may use this period to build up any part of his own case, to tear down any part of his opposition's case, or to ascertain facts. The questioner may make comments, statements or ask rhetorical questions. 
after each contestant has used his 30 seconds, he will have 10 seconds to state his final case.

At the end of this phase, I will choose a winner of the round based on the most convincing argument - not necessarily which contestant I agree with.

after 6 rounds, the two contestants with the most points will move on to the Shotgun Round.

In the Shotgun round, I will give two options (i.e. who's the better super hero - Batman or Superman?) and the first person to shout their position (Batman!) has 15 seconds to defend their choice. The other contestant must defend the unpicked option. After 15 seconds, you'll have two 5 second phases to argue. I will pick the winner as I did in the previous phase of the game.

there will be 4 rounds of Shotgun. In the event of a tie, we will have a sudden death tie-breaker of Shotgun. Winner take all.

NOTE* You can cheat. You can lie. You can site false facts. If your opponent calls you on inaccuracies, we will fact-check. If you are caught lying, you lose the round. If your opponent falsely calls you on something, he must remain silent for the remainder of the round. As the judge, I will not call anyone on their bullshit, if I spot it, until the end of the round.

The judge (me) must base his decision entirely on the material presented, without regard for other material which he may happen to possess.

The contestant with the most points at the end wins!

In this episode of the Nerd Words podcast, we delve into the deep end of Fallout 4. For some of us, we've done nothing else all week but play this damn addictive game! We talk about some funny things we've experienced, pitfalls, missions that have given us issues and additional concepts involving the game and its previous incarnations.
