    3 things:
    1) Love these things, always fun and interesting.
    2) Speaking of relistening to old podcasts, October is high and I was relistening to Final Girl:The First Cut. *shudder*.
    3) As one of a supriaingly large number of Utahns who drink, might I recommend a shot of Five Wives Sinful Cinnamon Vodka in your Angry Orchard Cinder for and booztastic apple pie 🙂

    Thanks again!

    David: Gleaming the Cube was also where my mind went at the first mention of ‘bunker’. I always thought that it looked like they’d just buried a large pipe in the ground and closed off the ends. …I mean, “What skateboarding movie? No, I have no recollection of that.”

    I’d like more of Part-time Gods and the Legends of Anglere group (both in whatever system). Rogue Trader, HEX and Unhallowed are the tops, but they have at least had some fleshing out, so feel like they have had a good run (pleasedontstoprunningthem!)

    Those first two felt like there was something there that could do with some more room to grow.

    Finally, because I was so happy that someone else knew wtf it was: Brisco County Junior!

    You guys made an old man cry, really, I laughed so hard I cried thinking up weird TEDtalks; Like: Basher Da Barsher on the Art of Diplomacy.
    Or HoneyBadger wants to give a shit.
    And that last part, yeah the salute and all, that too.
    Thanks folks.

    I just picked up the two Dresden Files RPG books and I would love to listen to more games from that setting.

    Ever plan on going back to that sometime, even if it’s not with the same characters?

  6. Nate says:

    The Laundry! Yes! And oh maaaaan I would love if you guys played that again (although I completely understand how much you hate the system.)

  7. I loved running the Dresden Files games, and would definitely not say no to a chance for some more adventures in that universe. Chances of us getting back to it, at least this year, are rather slim, though. We only have so much time and can only keep so many games going at once (though if our Patreon were to miraculously blow up to the point where we can suddenly do this for a living, then we can certainly talk! ;)). But if enough folks ask for a return to that game, I will do my best to bully the rest of Fandible into going back! I’m fact, I know Evil Hat is working on a new version of the Dresden Files RPG based off of their recent FATE Core rules, (or is it FATE Accelerated? Either way.), so when that comes out it might be a great opportunity to give it another run.

  8. Warren says:

    Oooh Dresden. That’s a good group too.

    The Hat is working on Dresden Accelerated. I’m also eagerly anticipating the Paranet Papers.
    Unfortunately/fortunately they work on the FFG you’ll-get-it-when-it’s-properly-done model, so it may still be quite a wait.

    I really love the Fandible Rogue Trader game! It’d be awesome to see more episodes from that (or the other 40k setting games). Even though there are a few other podcasts that do 40k actual plays, Fandible’s pretty head-and-shoulders above the others in quality!

    Another tongue-in-cheek suggestion: Burning Empires? As much as I’d love to hear you guys give it a go (and there are very few actual plays for it out there, and none that make for great listening), it might be way too rules heavy for your style, and the campaign-based structure doesn’t lend well for one-shots either. Just a thought though!
