That’s Not New

That’s Not New

By Phil Viverito
I’m trying something new with These Old Games, which I have to tell you, is very different.

I’ve always loved revisiting old games and trying to play them differently.

Episode 004 - Change, Kobolds, and Mrs. Todd
In this episode, I ramble unscripted. It's all cover in part one and two: Beginnings and Change. I muddle my way through 3 different kinds of Kobolds in my campaigns and then I swerve to Mrs. Todd's Shortcut.

Episode 003 - The Tomb of Horrors Sucks and Everybody Should Be a Bard
Welcome Back! What more can I say after that title? I have some new music so let's all give thanks to Kevin MacLeod at incompetech.com for the following tracks: Parting of the Ways - Part 2 Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Parting of the Ways - Part 1 Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ All hail Mr. MacLeod! In this episode, I wax poetic about AD&D 1e Bards and Rage Against the worst module ever, Tomb of Horrors.

Episode 002 - I Chose Poorly and De Ut Des
This episode has a format change base on feedback I've received. I have a new sponsor, Anchor.FM and the format now supports the concept of sponsors. I also have some new music so let's all give thanks to Kevin MacLeod at incompetech.com for the following tracks: Evening Fall (Piano) and Starry Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ All hail Mr. MacLeod! In this episode, I reminisce about 4 games: D&D, Star Frontiers, Gemstone IV and Traveller.  I cover 35+ years of gaming experiences in one podcast. Part of the reason I have been offline for so long was a mash up of getting my lesson plans online for students, my classes at Buffalo State suddenly switching to an online format and the associate PITA from taking finals online. I hope this format works better than Episode 001 and 000's. It was a pain to record, mostly owing to my new Pod-cat, Shinobu. She's cute even while she climbs the cables.

Episode 001 - Why I hate Walking Dead and the New Star Wars Films almost as much as I hate 5th Edition D&D
Title says it all, come on over to the dark side and take a listen as to why.  While you are processing that, let me tell you about the music. It is a track called Sovereign by Kevin MacLeod, available through the Creative Commons License.
