Episode 03 — “Off To Live On A Farm”

A bunch of old video games spark a brief discussion which naturally, as these episodes do, take Scott and Brian into the dark corners of RPG Live Streaming and a strange discussion of Experience Points.

  1. Try the glass cannon podcast. They are serious and actually play pathfinder. And the production quality is quite good.

      1. I’ll +1 that. It’s exactly the Pro-Am quality you are looking for. They’re also very aware of their ambassadorial position for the hobby.

  2. I love your podcast, but it needs to be way louder! It’s impossibile to hear what you say on earphones unless the environment is completely quiet 🙁 I like to listen to podcasts on public transportation but it’s just tecnically impossible D:

    1. Working on it!

      Promise. 🙂

      Edit: To amplify (get it? get it?) on that response a bit, we’ve had a few teething troubles with the audio set up which we have been working out as we go. Scott isn’t that audio minded and I’ve not had to deal with recording a double-ender like this before, so we adjust a thing, record a show, check it and make adjustments on the next show. Four will be a bit better than this, five better still, and I think we finally really nail the audio in six.

      We humbly beg your patience until then.

      Thank you for listening in spite of it. 🙂

  3. Just doing some back of the envelope maths for Fiddleback’s “XP/Session = Current XP total” idea using 5e’s current levels. Assuming the session where they have 0 XP has a budget of 100…

    0 > 100 > 200 > 400 *level 2* > 800 > 1600 *level 3* > 3200 *level 4* > 6400 > 12,800 *level 5* > 25,600 *levels 6&7*.

    So yeah it starts slow, and begins to break down rapidly. You wring 9-10 good sessions out of it though.

    1. Yup.

      Probably needs some adjusting here and there and a bit of work re-deciding what levels happen when.

      But it’s interesting.

      (And sure, its a standard doubling sequence, which, by step 20 ought to be really out of hand. 20th level, if my math is right, is something like 104,857,560 XP. Or, as the term is technically know, “A whole lot of monsters”.)

  4. In response to the criticism of Dice Camer Action. I’ve listened to the show in it’s entirety, and while the show started out in a somewhat goofy manner the players eventually settled into their characters more and over came a lot of the goofy elements.

    Also in direct relation to Stryx, played by Holly Conrad, she is a very accomplished cosplayer and actually has a deep love on dungeons and dragons as I learned from an interview she did on Dragontalk.
