Legend of the Five Rings – Session 01 Side A

Hello!

Welcome to the first of game session of our Fantasy Flight Games Legend of the Five Rings (L5R) series!  Alex, Kaetlyn, Kolton, and Matt played in this series as Shinjo, Doji, Shiba, and Kakita, and Colin acted as GM.

In this episode we’ll see our players take on the roles of some Ronin who are just trying to make camp for the night but are ambushed by some unlikely foes.  This is a prologue to the events of our actual game and will tie in with events you’ll hear about later on in the publication.  The idea here was that we were going to do a bit more of a cinematic feeling story and this was step one towards trying to bring that experience to the table and to you for your listening pleasure!

Our Pun-O-Meter is only at a 1 for today.  There’s a couple solid puns, but the bulk of the episode is spent learning the system and digging deep on the story.

Please enjoy!

Legend of the Five Rings – Character Creation

Hello!

Welcome to the first of recording session we had of our Fantasy Flight Games Legend of the Five Rings (L5R) series!  Alex, Kaetlyn, Kolton, and Matt joined this series as players and Colin acted as GM.

In this extended episode you’ll hear us decide what kind of game we wanted to play and then do the Game of 20 Questions.  We say “extended session,” but that doesn’t really do the two and a half hours of content justice.  You can feel free to skip this episode if you’d like as we’ll give a basic overview of this information in Session 01 Side A when it releases next Wednesday, but please feel free to enjoy our table chatter and character design process!

The Pun-O-Meter is at a 1 for today.  We were pretty focused on doing character creation and while we do crack a couple jokes and are obviously having a good time, there’s not much wordplay.

Please enjoy!

A Small Delay

Hello Listeners,

It is with regret that we’re writing this post to inform you that we won’t be publishing any audio content this week.  Colin, Kaetlyn, and Kolton had a family emergency this week and so the edits for the new series weren’t able to be completed.  We’ll bring you Character Creation on Monday and Episode One Side A of our play of the Fantasy Flight Games Legends of the Five Rings play test next week on the normal day and time, Wednesday, 5pm CST.

Until then, have fun and thank you for your patience!

Magical Fury – Session 05: Side B

Pun-o-Meter 4.png

Pun-o-Meter 5.png

The Pun’O’Meter (updated the graphic) is fixed but still maxing out the meter at a 5 this week. Not as many puns, but there was still a segment near the end where we got pretty punny.

Please, Enjoy the Show!

Magical Fury – Session 04: Side A

Hello!

Today we continue our Magical Fury!  A “Dark” Magical Girls game by Ewen Cluney series.  You’ll hear Alex, Colin, Elspeth, Hillary, Kolton, and Matt playing their magical girls on Side A of our fourth recording session, and Kaetlyn will continue her awesome job GMing!  We pick up with the Magical Girls as they try to deal with the mess they made of the pillar at the end of the last session.  They try using some more magic to fix their problems… that couldn’t possibly go wrong right? … right?!?

Pun-o-Meter Off The Charts.png

The Pun’O’Meter (finally got that graphic!) is completely broken by the out of control puns in this episode! It reads an insane 6!  There’s even a bonus segment of puns after the credits that needed to be cut from the episode but still had some great ones if you need more.

Please, Enjoy the Show!

Magical Fury – Session 03: Side B

Hello!

Today we continue our Magical Fury!  A “Dark” Magical Girls game by Ewen Cluney series.  You’ll hear Alex, Colin, Elspeth, Hillary, Kolton, and Matt playing their magical girls on Side B of this third recording session, and Kaetlyn will continue her awesome job GMing!  We find the girls about to delve down into the underground of the city in order to find some magic that Princess Jelly had smelled at the end of last episode…

This episode is part of the recording same session from last week and as such there is still a massive issue with our audio quality due to the presence of snacks at the table and the rowdy nature of the group on this night.  We did everything we could to make the quality as clean as possible but it’s still very rough and for that, we here at the Wednesday Night Crew deeply apologize.  We assure you that we are looking for methods to clean up our audio quality as we’re trying to bring you the best content we can!

The Pun’O’Meter shot up to a 5 for today. Magical Girl battles apparently have lots of puns. Who knew!?

Please, Enjoy the Show!

Magical Fury – Session 03: Side A

Hello!

Today we continue our Magical Fury!  A “Dark” Magical Girls game by Ewen Cluney series.  You’ll hear Alex, Colin, Elspeth, Hillary, Kolton, and Matt playing their magical girls on Side A of this third recording session, and Kaetlyn will continue her awesome job GMing!  We pick up with the Magical girls as they get into a strangers car with the promise of fries and they find out more about what being magical girls in this setting means!

A word about the audio quality of this episode; there were snacks at the table so you can hear bags crinkling and people chewing occasionally and the group was large and especially rambunctious this night.  We did everything we could to make the quality as clean as possible but it’s still very rough and for that, we here at the Wednesday Night Crew deeply apologize.  We assure you that we are looking for methods to clean up our audio quality as we’re trying to bring you the best content we can!

The Pun’O’Meter sticks around a 2 for today, mostly due to Hillary’s constant vigilance in that regard, but we’ve got some furiously good jokes going all session long.

Please, Enjoy the Show!

Magical Fury – Session 02: Side B

Hello!

Today we continue our Magical Fury!  A “Dark” Magical Girls game by Ewen Cluney series.  You’ll hear Alex, Elspeth, Kolton, and Matt playing their magical girls on Side B of this second recording session, and Kaetlyn will continue her awesome job GMing!  We’ll be picking up with the fiasco that is teenagers and phone chargers but that quickly escalates to something much more serious as magical girl anime often do.

The Pun’O’Meter pops back up to around 3 this episode, largely due to our combat late in the game.

Please, Enjoy the Show!
