Which also stars: Troy Lavallee, Joe O’Brien, Matthew Capodicasa,
Don’t forget to back Ogre Cheerleader which is on Kickstarter for 3 more
Skid talks about how Nerd Poker turned him onto creating their own podcast.
His favorite RPG would have to be Traveller RPG. He loves the palladium
system. Loved the Critical tables in MERP. 1st thing they did to get famous

If you ever loved me subscribe and download 1st 2 episodes even if you

FOR AAA Skid talks about: syrinscape by Ben Lumas for their sound
effects for the show Soundsets for all kinds of settings 4 basic sound sets
are free or can purchase, or subscribe for $12.99 for 2 months. You can
sign up once and download every one and unsubscribe and their yours
forever. To make it better.
Nick Lowe from Marvel comics created the skid jingle that skid sings:
Nerdage which is his favorite song ever. Pretty soon there will be a Glass
Cannon subset on Sirenscape.
During Kickstarter Corner I touch upon: Ancient Artifacts which is a lot like
Arcade Fighter which reminds me of Street fighter or Mortal combat
