  1. Another great episode, gentlemen.

    Please let Scott know that I don’t have a favourite class as of yet; as a player, I like to dabble in various classes. The Valiant seems, to me, to be a really good place to start, though, and is THE iconic Gothic horror staple.

    TA contains a lot of cool ideas. Now we need Scott to do an “actual play” podcast…..

  2. Been lurking a while, but wanted to chime in today.

    It was great to hear from Scott about Transylvanian Adventures. Definitely want to check that out.

    What a fantastic day! New Spellburn episode with an excellent interview, followed up by winning this weeks Dungeon Denizen. Thanks guys! Jim your picture for my gnarled creation is fantastic!

    I had a chance to include the Bone Thicket in my Monday night game. A few of the players got caught up in the roots, but they were able to charge it, and cut it down while others lit torches and prepared oil! The Bone Thicket did not even have a chance to attack. Next time they’ll face three! LOL

    I was not that interested in Transylvanian adventures until a heard this episode. Scott’s description and passion for the setting was very apparent. I will be picking up a copy!

    Thanks for the great episode. Look forward to the next.

    Great episode- another interesting guest and very informative discussion. Spellburn remains one of highlights of my week!

    It would be great to hear something similar for Fallen Empire when that product comes on line!

    • We had Tales From the Fallen Empire author James Carpio scheduled as a guest and the recording session fell through. We’ll definitely be having him on the show as soon as the schooling gods align.

  5. Due to the holidays, I will forgive you for not having supplied my next fix……

  6. This podcast got me intrigued enough to go ahead and buy it from Drivethru with Hardback (+PDF) so I could start checking it out NOW!
