Hindsightless

By Joe
Hi! I'm Joe, aka the Blind Rat. I'm the DM for the Weal or Woe actual play podcast. On here, however, I'll just be talking about whatever pops into my head, usually RPG related. There'll be next to no editing or polish on these episodes, but I'll try my best to make them enjoyable.

S9E10 Story Time with Papa Joe
This one gets weird. Pretty. Damn. Weird. Before that though, I have some awesome call in's from some super rad dudes! We might even talk a little about the Rat Hack, my stripped down version of Pathfinder 1e for the mini campaign I'm currently running. Let me just add;I have it on good authority that the way I spin my yarn could frighten an easily scared 4-year old, so listen at your own peril. 
30:50
April 17, 2021
S9E9 Couldn't Think of a Name
I talk about our most recent session of the Rat Hack and how to get through a session when you're not feeling very creative. Fake it 'til you make it. 
19:02
April 5, 2021
S9E8 My Spooky House
Three! Three! Three games in one! In this episode, I talk about the games in which I recently played, Jason stops by to say hello, Logan makes podcasting sound very profound, and I drop something spooky at the end. What more could anyone ask for? Probably a lot, but this is what you get. 
21:40
March 31, 2021
S9E7 Rad Books and Magic Calls... No, Wait!!!
I discuss the aftermath of the ripper camp raid, how the love of a child is the real treasure, and answer some super rad calls from some way cool dudes. 
36:49
March 24, 2021
S9E6 Call In's & Why the Hell Am I Like This?
I got some great Collins from a few of the aluminum areas of Anchor! John and Jason drop by for a poetry slam, B.J. has something to say about human versatility, and Logan drops some science about animal intelligence. I even do a little singing.  Then, I do a mostly terrible job at explaining why I am the way I am. 
24:43
March 19, 2021
S9E5 The Rat Hack aka My Version of Pathfinder
Jason, let’s see if this works😎 In this episode I talk about my latest session of my mini campaign. What happens when a blind guy tries to run 17 bad guys and one friendly unicorn on a VTT? Tune in and find out!
14:23
March 14, 2021
S9E4 How Do They Hammer with Such Tiny Arms?
I know, right? Me again already, but I HAD to put out an episode! I was too excited. Why, you ask? Because I received two call in's from the masterful Logan "Swordbreaker" Howard. Now, where I come from, when you get messages from a person of that caliber, it behooves you to put out a damn episode ASSAP. So, here it is Additionally, I wanted to answer a question that Andy Goodman asked on his wonderful podcast Expedition to the Grizzly Peaks, and then turn the question around on its' head. Also, if you want to hear about tool using dinosaurs, then you're in the right place. 
12:10
March 9, 2021
S9E3 Mitigate Your Losses
In this episode I discuss the totally awesome session of League of Eternal Guardians that I got to play inAnd the almost totally awesome session of my mini campaign that I ran. I was also lucky enough to get calls from three amazing people. Thanks so much to John, Colin and Jason. You dudes are awesome!
22:01
March 7, 2021
S9E2 Dream Weaver
Today I ask you questions three. Listen well and answer me.Hear me when you’re with your dogs or driving solo in the fog. Pay attention to the road, else comes danger yet untold.
39:46
February 28, 2021
S9E1 A Whole New World
Have I already used that one? Seems I can't be bothered to check. Today I answer some rad call in's and talk about the first session of the low magic mini campaign I'm running using a deeply altered Pathfinder 1e. It's a good time! Why is it a good time? Because awesome people took time out of their day to call into my show, so you get to listen to them as well as me! Two for one!
28:41
February 22, 2021
S8E24 When Rainbows Kill
Good grief! When's the last time any of you have had to deal with Prismatic Spray at your table? As the unquestioned king of getting new players into the hobby, I discuss what a crazy spell PS is, and why PF1 is just as deadly as any of the vaunted OSR games I've played, read listened to, or watched.  
10:11
February 19, 2021
S8E23 A Very Versatile Spell
A quick run down of the last session of RotRL and a "unique" new insight on a classic spell. 
08:40
February 14, 2021
E8S22 Humans. Are. Not. Versatile.
Is that a click baity title enough for y'all? I go on a little rant about this whole idea that the thing that separates humans from the other species in an RPG is their versatility. It ain't. To misquote a classic, "If it breeds, we can't kill it."
05:50
February 12, 2021
S8E21 Birthday Time Warp
I'm recording this the day before my birthday, which means it's already my birthday in certain parts of the world! #worldwide A big shout out to Barry, Lieren and Jason for your super thoughtful advice on my moral quandary. Even though I don't need to, I'm going to say it anyways; go check out Shadow of the GM, Updates from the Middle of Nowhere, and Nerd's RPG Variety Cast. They're great. You're great. We're all great.  Let me also give another big, but silent, shout out the rad folks that have already called in with ideas for the random encounter and rumor tables I'm putting together. There's still time to contribute if you're feeling creative. The game starts on Feb. 20th, so as long as you get your suggestion in before then, it'll be on the table. Imagine it, an OSR grognard inspired random encounter table thrown at a bunch of new school players. It'll be a bloodbath, right?  
21:41
February 5, 2021
S8E20 A Cry for Help
I’m stuck in a quagmire folks; The moral kind. What’s a dungeon master to do? Help me, Anchor-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope. I mean, you’re not really my *only* hope but it sure would be awesome if you could help out. Thanks for the call, Jason. You’re awesome! Oh yeah, I also talk about my last session of our Rise of the Runelords game.
21:45
January 30, 2021
S8E19 World Building Ramble
I talk about North Watch, the starting town I'm building for the mini-campaign I'l be running next month. I love world building and if anyone wants to hear more about what's going on in North Watch, let me know. 
07:57
January 23, 2021
S8E18 Love You to Death
I felt that the title of the greatest goth metal song, by the greatest goth metal band (Type O Negative) would be the perfect fit to talk about my most recent session of Rise of the Runelords. It was a silken pink bloodbath. Also, Type O rules!  As always (at least lately); here there be spoilers!
13:01
January 20, 2021
S8E17 A Whole New World
Today I talk more about Mystera and all its' beautiful weirdness and give a rundown on what happened in last night's awesome session of Rise of the Runelords. Did my new character, Alastair Bronzebarrow, work the way I thought he would? Did the battle play out the way I hoped? What do Jason C and Rob C (no relation) have to say? Answers to these questions and so much more await you!
18:10
January 15, 2021
E8S16 Getting to Know the Known World
I know, another episode from me already? Yup. I love it when folks call in because it gives me stuff to talk about. I also talk about my new favorite old setting. 
13:54
January 13, 2021
S8E15 Rising from the Ashes
I received some pushback from my last episode and let it not be sad that I do not give my detractors a voice on my platform. The majority of this episode is dedicated to talk about my new character.
07:15
January 9, 2021
S8E14 Trumpsters Are Cultists & the Death of Puck
What happened yesterday was started by, encouraged by, and supported by Donald Trump, the worst president this country has ever had. If someone supports Donald Trump, then they are a cultist. They're not a part of a political party. They're members of a very dangerous cult; blindly believing whatever their cult leader tells them. They should be ashamed of themselves, but they're all too stupid, self centered, and selfish to feel shame. I also talk about the near TPK we suffered last night. Feel free to skip the first 3 minutes if you don't want to hear my rant. 
08:38
January 8, 2021
S8E13 A Short Episode After a Long Day
 A quick one to respond to a rad call in from my fellow Pathfinder aficionado, Shawn. I also talk a bit more about the low magic/low fantasy setting I'm putting together. 
05:21
December 31, 2020
S8E12 A Brief Word from Puck
A question from Jason deserves a response from Puck himself🤣 I also talk about the gaming I’ve been thinking about lately. Merry Christmas and happy holidays🎄
16:19
December 25, 2020
S8E11 A Quick Chat
Just a short one here (that's what he said) where I answer some awesome call in's from Shawn and Jason. Thanks for the messages, boys. 
08:49
December 23, 2020
S8E10 Threepeat
Third time's the charm. Well, this is only the second time, but two out of three ain't bad. Meatloaf rules! Herein I ACTUALLY tell you about my recent time with  Rise of the Runelords. We're deep into book 5 now and it's still all the way awesome! This was our last session before the New year, so I guess I'll have to come up with something else to talk about for a few weeks. Oh, and I once again (for the first time) tell you about the one feat I might ban in the next campaign of Pathfinder that I run.  I also speak a bit about what plans I may have for the New Year. No, not New Year's Resolution. Those are stupid and doomed to fail. Just something that's running around inside of my head. 
15:39
December 18, 2020
S8E9 Two is One & One is None
I didn't think of the title until I was done recording but I have to give a big shout out to ol' Spikepit for introducing me to that pithy little saying.  Today I talk about the two, count 'em two, sessions of Rise of the Runelords that I played in since my last episode. Later, I postulate about the Pathfinder feat I might ban in my next campaign.  I'm sure you've already noticed, but I am the world's worst numberer. My episode numbers are all over the place to the point where it basically don'y even matter anymore. I'm not going to change anything, just thought I'd bring it up😎
00:21
December 11, 2020
S5E8 The Most Dangerous Part of RPG's
I talk about the book I just finished reading, my latest session of Rise of the Runelords, and talk about the unquestionably deadliest part of any RPG. 
15:46
November 30, 2020
E8S7 The Jason & Joe Show
Jason's smart enough to get the people he wants to talk to on his show and I'm not, so this is what you get🤣 You're already listening to Nerd's RPG Variety Cast, so you don't need me to tell you how great of a show it is. 
21:41
November 20, 2020
S8E6 TPK or Win the Day?
My retelling of the conclusion to book 4 of Paizo's amazing adventure path, Rise of the Runelords. As always, major spoilers abound. Is this the best pre-written, fantasy campaign of all time?? Yes. Have I played them all? No. 
19:11
November 19, 2020
S8E4 I Got Spikepitted!!!
A fairly short and confuse one for me tonight. Thanks to Karl for the info and call in’s. You’re a cool dude. Be good to each other out there folks.
09:34
November 6, 2020
S8E3 Rise of the Dragon Plains
The first 2 minutes of this episode is a highly charged political rant, so feel free to skip it. I had to record it multiple times because the first couple of takes were too... much. This is the toned down version. I put the rant at the start so anyone can skip over it and get right into the rest of the non political episode.  Cheers! I recount the three, count 'em THREE, games I played in this week! As always, there will be major spoilers of the Rise of the Runelords campaign.  Thanks for the awesome song Loco Ludus and thanks for asking a great question GM Shadow. If you don't know, now you know. 
36:27
November 2, 2020
S8E2 We saved Sandpoint!
Just a quick re-cap of this week's Rise of the Runelords game. A few folks have mentioned that they enjoy hearing about my sessions, but these re-caps are really more for future Joe than anything else. I think it'll be cool to have a saved memory of my first ever complete Pathfinder Adventure Path. 
06:30
October 23, 2020
S8E1 It Has Begun!
It's official. I am, once again, part of the working world. No longer will I have endless free time to plum the depths of gaming minutia. This makes me sad. This opportunity I have is really amazing though. I'll be working directly to better the lives of people. I'm stoked! I'm also stoked about these two messages. A wicked warm congratulatory message from Spencer and an explosive thought experiment from the ever creative Shawn of An Eldrich Dream Games. Thank you both so very much.   
13:30
October 20, 2020
S7E12 The Final Countdown
The countdown to my first day on the new job has begun in earnest and I wanted to get in one more episode before the big day. I have a lot to say about last night's totally kick ass session of Rise of the Runelords (major spoilers for Book 4) and I have two awesome messages from Shawn and Jason. Is that one message from each? Two messages each? Some other ratio of messages to caller? Answers to these Earth shattering questions, and more, can be found right here, right now!
23:51
October 15, 2020

S7E9 Tilling the Fields of the Dead
The tale of my most recent session of our Rise of the Runelords campaign. There are a couple of spoilers for the adventure path, so listen at your own risk. I have a slew of voice messages about my last episode, but I wasn't in the right head space to play them in this episode. I'll get to them next time. I promise. 
20:17
October 1, 2020
S7E8 The Sleeper Must Awaken
Jason of Nerd's RPG Variety Cast was kind enough to leave me some messages about the upcoming Dune movie. Turns out I have stuff to say about it, too. With the world being as messed up and scary as it is today, this quote from Dune is more true now than ever before; "Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me."
10:60
September 30, 2020
S7E7 You Thought That was Big?
Here I go again on my own. Going down the only road I've ever known. Although, unlike a drifter, I apparently was not born to walk alone because a bunch of super rad people called me. So I made up my mind to share them with you.  I got messages about story games from Barney, jargon from Colin, and labels from John. Most importantly of all, I received some whispered words of wisdom from the inscrutable Nate Gillbreath.
35:47
September 29, 2020
S7E6 A Girthy Number of Messages
Folks had stuff to say and here it is. By folks I mean Jason, Barney and Karl. Luckily, none of these message  consist of anyone correcting me, disagreeing with me, or talking trash to me. Oh wait...🤣 A big thank you to Barney, Jason and Carl with a K. Sometimes speech to text is a pain in the ass😎🤷‍♂️🤘
15:30
September 23, 2020
S7E5 Wolf Sh*t
This one starts off hot so maybe don’t listen to it with kids in the car😎 There’s some singing, discussion of character death,and amazing voice messages from Barney, John, and Collin.
34:29
September 21, 2020
S7E4 The Upside of Low Sessions
I talk about the thing from the Rise of the Rune Lord’s game that I wanted to talk about last episode but I forgot. Next, I also touch on the things one can learn from not running a great session. Lastly, but most importantly, I have some call in’s from the amazing Spencer of Keep off the borderlands and Jason from nerds RPG variety cast
17:29

S7E3

S7E2
I realized I had more to say after I stopped recording yesterday so here is another episode. I talk a little bit about the challenges of running a West marches style game online at what I am working on to try and overcome those challenges. Then I have two great Collins from Spencer and Jason. Super happy to be back!
18:08
September 6, 2020
S7E1 miss me?
After a short hiatus I have returned! I’ve played a bunch of games with a slew of amazing people lately and I want to talk about them.

S6E28 RPG-A-Day #28 Close

S5E11 Not RPG-A-Day
Yeah.. So...  This was supposed to come out yesterday, but I got caught up watching the return of the NBA. I love basketball and it was awesome watching a major U.S. sports league show the amount of class, compassion and social awareness that the NBA showed last night. Anyway, enough about sports ball. This show is supposed to be about roleplaying games, right? Well, I have some stuff to say about the super rad Rise of the Runelords game I'm playing in and the Pathfinder 1e West Marches game I'm trying to put together. I also have some great messages from  cool people.  Big thanks to: Barney: Loco Ludus podcast John: Reed Dice Diaries RPG podcast Jason: Nerd's RPG Variety Cast podcast Jef:: Tome of all Dooms podcast

S5E9 Game Time
It's been awhile but I'm back, for better or for worse. I've played a lot of games since last we spoke and I want to talk about them. I've played Pathfinder 1E, Monster Hearts, and D&D 5E. This was the most I've played in a row since I was probably 14 years old and it's been awesome! I'm also lucky enough to have a handful of rad call in's that I want to share, then I make a big(?), possibly-not gonna-happen, announcement.  Thanks so much for the messages: Julz: Jewels from NZ podcast Karl Rodriguez Jason: Nerd's RPG Variety Cast podcast John Red Dice Diaries RPG podcast

S5E8 Two Totally Rad Sessions
Here there be major spoilers for the end of Book 1 and the start of Book 2 for Paizo's Rise of the Runelords adventure path. I played in two really great sessions this week in which I experienced one of those once-in-a-campaign type events and heard something awesome that every DM should want to hear from a new player. Let me tell you all about them! We end the episode with a message from Spencer, of the Keep Off the Border Lands podcast, that I really hope each and every one of you carries around in your mind for a long time, because I know Spencer's words will stick with me for the rest of my life.

S5E6 Jawin' with Judd
I was introduced to Judd Karlman of the terrific Daydreaming About Dragons podcast through Andy's awesome Expedition to the Grizzly Peaks show, where Andy interviewed Judd. I then looked up Judd on Anchor and started listening to his podcast. After reaching out to him, it turns out he started listening to my show as well. Here are a few of the really cool things Judd had to say.  This isn’t an interview. Check out the Daydreaming About Dragons podcast if you're not already. It's really good👍 Thanks so much Judd for all these great call in's. This episode literally could not have happened without you.

Wherein I ponder why describing murder is ok around an RPG table but describing a sexual, or even romantic, scene seems taboos. Featuring cal-ins from the Pit and the Middle of Nowhere.  This episode might not be for everyone so I slapped it with the "explicit" label.
