The Comeback!

Hey everyone!

So I finally got back on Feedburner today and discovered that our Ep 13: Beware The Boatman has 300+ downloads.  I don't know if thats a mistake or not, but holy crap!  That is absolutely mind blowing!

We will be back soon! Hopefully in first weeks of January we can get a game scheduled, even if it is something quick and dirty.  I know Jeff has been working on a Savage Worlds setting for us to mess around in.

Also!  If anyone is interested, please feel free to review us on any sites that allow it (iTunes, etc)!

Hiatus Month

Hey all!

Between Jeff's heat going out, John's buying a house and Honeymoon, and Christmas/New Years Scheduling gaming has been tough, and will continue to be.  SO we are declaring December Hiatus Month and will be back in 2012 with new episodes!

Thanks to all of our listeners, we will be back shortly!

No episode this week. :(

Sorry everyone, no podcast this week due to Thanksgiving scheduling conflicts.

Also of note is that we may not have episodes on December 10th and possibly the 17th.  John will be in Mexico for a week in early December so unless he decides to teach Jeff how to do all the podcast stuff we will probably be on hiatus for a little bit.

Hopefully after the 1st of the year we will fall back into a pretty regular schedule and have everyone available a little more regularly so we can fall into a campaign or two.

Thanks for listening everyone!

Episode 13: Beware the Boatman

This week the Hench-Cast comes up with a new Urban Dictionary entry!

We also played another one shot of Savage Worlds using the M.E.A. theme we had last week.  In this adventure the boys dimension hop to the planet Necropolis to help the Church State save the remains of one of their Saints from the undead.

Episode 12: Savage Worlding

The Hench-Cast does Savage Worlds!

In today's episode the boys give Savage Worlds a shot.  John GM's a quick and dirty one shot in which we do all manner of things incorrectly rules-wise.  But we have fun, and were able to take away what to do correctly for next time.

So enjoy John (gm), Jeff, Mike, and Josh bumbling through Savage Worlds: Explorer's Edition and shooting Orcs with modern firearms!

Welcome back to the Hench-Cast!

Cleaned up the feed, and posting schedule

I cleaned up the RSS feed so it only shows podcasts, not any of my other banter. :)

I will be posting Part 2 of the first episode of Pathfinder tonight.  Then we will be posting every Saturday at Noon with new episodes.  I won't be cutting future episodes in into parts except for MechWarrior when we go into BattleTech for 'Mech combat.

Also! I forgot to post pictures that Jeff took of the game board during Episode 1 so those will be coming along tonight as well.

Have a good'un
