Campaign Recap: Kingdom the Next Generation Episode 006

October 23rd, 2008 · 4 Comments

*This is not Actual Play

*A word of warning. Due to scheduling conflicts we ended up playing and recording on a Friday which meant that more than a few drinks were consumed.  It was also Talk Like A Pirate Day.  Because the recording came at the end of many alcohol-soaked hours, it’s a bit rambly.

*Session 10:  Everybody Loves Wentworth / The Houseguests From Hell/ Blood in the Water

*Session 11: The Battle of Estermarsh

(Host’s Note: Andrew “Jim Brown” Webb is the PodgeCast’s official new game reviewer. Andrew has logged many an hour behind the counter at his FLGS and often comes away with new and different games that might not have penetrated the mainstream. He gives them a try and lets you know whether you should check it out. So with the first of many, the PodgeCast proudly presents Andrew Webb’s Off the Shelf.)
