More SUPERB show feedback that I can't share on the Gutter Skypes Podcast. :( Any possibility I could convince you somehow to write your observations in an Email box as well as these Forums?)

anim5@anim5.com    - or-   animfive@gmail.com

For the good of all who survive Apocalypse World?

Don't worry, sooner or later, the other Gutter Skypers will probably meander by and leave a comment. :D As the Beatles said, "All you need is bugs". (Which makes a lot of sense, considering the band title.) ;)

BTW, Trilobite mentioned in #183 that he had trouble telling Jimmy Buffett apart from that Warren guy with the similar surname - if that's still an issue, you could recommend that he should listen to MBMBaM episode 317, and get a deeper analysis of the parrot hats. :)

Listening to #184, it was surprising that nobody made any Bugs Bunny references. After all, when the ambulance driver was so eager to drink carrot juice, it seemed like he was setting the scene for a snarky "Ehhh... What's up, doc?" ;)

If you want some tips on how to pronounce the name "Meguey", you could try listening to this Backstory podcast interview:

To celebrate one year of Backstory, Alex brings on indie legends and Apocalypse World co-creators Meguey and D. Vincent Baker. Topics range from sex education to censorship to masonic initiation ceremonies and quilt preservation – and yes, it’s all related to game design.


Speaking of Apocalypse World, you might also be interested in another episode from the OneShot network:

Urban Shadows. The Watch. Andrew Medeiros knows how to hack Apocalypse World, and more importantly, he knows what happened to Janet! Come listen to us chat about why it’s so fun to be Powered by the Apocalypse.


Nikki might not be able to pay her post-apocalyptic bar tab with pink fuzzy dice ripped from rear-view mirrors, but it could be the perfect currency for your D&D campaign. After all, the name of your campaign setting, Quincunx, also describes the arrangement of pips on the fifth side of a d6. :)

Re: the mandolin discussion in #183 - since they're part of the lute family, a mandolin maker would probably be called a luthier, as well (even though it would certainly be funnier if they were called Mandaloreans). :)

Considering that the average D&D adventurer is a remorseless Murder HoboTM by default, it should hardly be any surprise to you that the PC who was raised by velociraptors is the most polite and compassionate member of the party. ;) (Perhaps the other players will have to start referring to Rhogar's adotive parents as "ver'-nice-iraptors"?) :P

Good news, everyone! (Or at least, every Gutter Skype that might drop by.) :)

Remember that dragon picture Trilobite used as a character portrait for his ranger, Rhogar? The one where he couldn't find the original source? Turns out that it's part of a digital painting made by comic book artist Stjepan Sejic, Ravine: Calisto and Vulpeen.

Spoiler


He's made plenty of other dragon pictures, if you're interested, along with loads of other stuff, including a large selection of joke and gag comics - perhaps Nikki can confirm his scientific theorems and hypotheses? :P

(No doubt @Hal and @TheGlen, and all the other LotR aficionados here on the site, will be amused by the comics he made after watching the new Hobbit movies.) ;)

Nice comics. I think I'd better get round to watching Battle of the 5 Armies before it leaves Netflix in a couple of days.

Re: BlindGeek's question at the end of episode 185, where he wondered whether "Here, here!" or "Hear, hear!" is the correct phrase - Nikki was right, it's the latter. It's derived from "Hear him! Hear him!", and apparently arose in the British Parliament, because they usually ban applause in those settings, so people invented an alternative.

There's also an amusing anecdote about the phrase:

During one of his many famous speeches in the House Sheridan became aware of one M.P. who insisted on muttering his agreement whenever Sheridan paused. After a while this interruption became so distracting that he departed from his text to silence the fool.

'Where, oh where, shall we find a more foolish knave or a more knavish fool than this?' he asked the packed house.

'Hear, hear!' said the lone voice for the last time.


Speaking of Nikki, she should be careful about showing her new Super-mandolin to strangers - she might end up with an envious enemy, like the infamous Lex Luthier. ;)

Management reserves the right to punch you dead in the face if you make a joke with the word "smelt" in it.


But how can you be sure that the sign is genuine, and not a forge-ery? That's just the sort of thing that crooks anvil-lains would do. :P

Regarding your discussion in episode 186, about possible names for your adventuring party - when Nikki returns, she'll probably suggest "Argante & the Argantettes". :) Come to think of it, you've got three PCs whose names start with a syllable that rhymes with 'Oh!' (Rho-gar, Cro-thu, Bo-nesteele), as well as Argante the mandolin-toting poet, and Cuddy, who, uh... mows through the foes with his Taekwon-Do, delivering K.O.s - so maybe you should name the team "The O-Faces". :P

Speaking of names, it was a good thing you called that Goliath guardsman Cpt. Nanep, and not Colonel Sanders Sandstone; otherwise, the players might have been able to guess that you were about to ambush them with a triple serving of Kentucky Petrified Chicken. (And yes, in case you're wondering, that's a Nodwick joke.) ;)

BTW, it was interesting to hear that those dinosaur traps consisted of cages made of "boobam". It can't have been easy to turn tuned bongo drums into velociraptor traps, but if the PCs just stumbled onto the set of a Hollywood movie studio, it probably makes some kind of sense. ;)

Nice comics. I think I'd better get round to watching Battle of the 5 Armies before it leaves Netflix in a couple of days.


Stjepan Sejic has also worked on several published RPG-related comic books, like Rat Queens and the Pathfinder Origins series, doing covers for the Seoni and Merisiel issues etc.

Pencil Monkey . . . . .

ALL of your comments regarding our recent D&D episodes are GOLDEN.

I'm BEGGING you.

PLEASE consider writing us an email so I can read out and share your sense of

humour on the podcast!

I simply can't rip a garden out of Hal's yard and present it as "Gutter Skypes Feedback."

That would just be bad form and poor manners.
