OLD WEEN to you all! We’re covering the very weird Palladium title Nightbane this ween’s eve, so ready yourself for one piece of beautiful Brom art and 200 pages of […]
And with hungry hearts, we close this chapter of Expounded Universe. Seriously, we must have been starving, this episode is pretty food heavy. The climax has come, and you know […]
It’s Ween again, my friends! Joyous Ween to you all! But sadly this year White Ween was simply out of the question. So we searched far and wide for a […]
The demipenultimate episode! Luke is missing! Teneniel is just working that dark side/light side divide! King Solo finally goes full Princess Bride! And most exciting of all, with two chapters […]
The story really heats up! There’s cool rancor fights and jedi battles and Gethzerion is super in play! But of course we find ways to keep making fun of it. […]
Join us and our new friends the Bay City Informanauts on a tour through With Great Power, a game of superheroic discussions, mostly.
The story heats up as the team raids the prison! Will they find Gethzerion? Will they find love? Is Chewie gonna do anything this episode (spoiler: no).
The gang’s all together! And now they’re fighting! Like first graders! Let’s check in on proud naked Tenenniel, Isolder and Han splashing each other, and Luke afraid of cooties in […]
A game that dares to ask the question “What if Bubblegum Crisis?” Seriously, that’s the question. The answer, surprisingly, is “No one gets the mech suits, everyone is a dirty […]
We get to step in the wild head and untamed boobs of everyone’s new favorite force witch Tenenniel Djo today! There’s fights with Nightwitches, battles of wits (Han is terribly […]
Turns out this book can actually be pretty good when it’s not about the scintillating Han/Leia dynamic, so these two chapters, which don’t let the two of them anywhere near […]
We felt a little dirty doing a “new” book last episode, so here’s our course correction. The 1975 version of Tekumel: Empire of the Petal Throne, with all acute accents […]
Han continues to be the absolutely worst, but at least he’s a handsome king now (thanks Threepio), and we finally encounter some hotnsexy rancors in today’s thrilling installment! Plus, Luke […]

We went to GenCon and we made this show and now we hope you enjoy this show we made at GenCon. Next time we talk about Shadowrun we’ll try to […]
Oh for the love of god Han, no. Stop. Everyone just stop. Chewie, obviously you’re cool, but the rest of you just cut it out. This is it, the moment […]
Have you ever wanted to explore space but it’s just ever so slightly too difficult for you? Exactly the range of too difficult where it’d suddenly be possible if you […]
Finally things start to pick up steam as Han deploys his standard gambling skills, Leia ruffles his hair like an adorable dog, and Chewie just sorta checks out entirely.
The novel begins to search for a groove as we settle in for some deeply bodice-ripping action-free times. Isolder used to be a pirate! Han and Leia have the worst […]
Often considered in the top ten worst RPGs ever made, there’s a lot of weird choices in here. A lot of bad, weird choices. Thrill at the majesty of a […]
Expounded Universe is going back to basics. Let’s talk about Leia, Han, and their dumb stupid relationship for idiots. Let’s talk about woot horns! And what’s Luke up to? Something […]
It’s over! We discuss the best and worst of the characters, chapters, and themes of the Mos Eisley Cantina anthology, answer some listener questions, and look to the future!
It’s high time that someone on the internet had an opinion about this edition of this game, and you know what, it might as well be us. Please enjoy this […]
Ugh we ate Oreos so nasty that we had to tell someone about it, and guess what, you’re someone. Enjoy.
Now this is the kind of weird shenanigans we WANT from our Expanded Universe. Thrill to the love story of a wet sock puppet and a cheap werewolf costume! Can […]
So this chapter is about maps. It’s about maps and moisture farmers and Jawas and Tusken Raiders and a surprising amount of Norwegian Star Wars folks. Got Star Wars questions? […]
Behold a galaxy of unchecked exploration and progress, as made by very fussy little animals that don’t like to be touched. It’s sort of like if the Wind in the […]
A long long time after the cantina, on a planet far, far away from the cantina, a new story is unfolding. It’s the Dr. Evazan and Ponda Baba show, and […]

It’s another week of special guests with friend of the show, Quinn, stopping by to help discuss this inscrutable book with an unhealthy obsession with the numbers 7 and 13. […]

This week at the cantina we are following around that guy in the dollar store devil costume to see what he is up to. Turns out, he is balls deep […]
While Jef is too occupied with baby to do the time consuming prep on the show, we are kicking off the first of our guest appearance series. Joining me to […]
While Mos Eisley has been described as a den of “scum and villainy”, so far the book hasn’t been too full of real scumbags. All of that is going to […]
