TTB- Episode 1 – Faux Show goes Through the Breach

And now for something completely different!

Faux Show has begun a Through the Breach campaign via skype.  Tao Newton-Breese will be hosting the adventure as Fate Master.  Episode 1 includes individual introductory adventures for Marko Stechollo (played by Rob Howell) and Dorian the Red (played by Mark Handford).

Stay tuned for Faux Show TTB- Episode 2 and the introductory adventures of two more players!

Episode 11 – Breaching the Faux

We’re back, right on monthly schedule with Episode 11!  Mark goes into some detail on his escapades down to Portland and the Breaching the Faux tournament, Tao and Mark discuss how not to get butt-hurt during games, and we round out the episode with some talk of WetCoast and general gaming life.

Follow Tao on Twitter now, @WayoftheBrown !

Faux Show turns 10 with Episode 10 (yeah, I said it, no don’t go count them…).  Tao and Mark are joined by Ash Barker who talks about his journey to Indiegogo to start Guerilla Miniature Games and create the highest quality tabletop gaming video content.  We briefly touch on Collodi in the Master Debaters and more reminiscing on recent conventions at the Honeypot Lounge.

I’m a little rusty on the editor but it should be headphone-friendly and not cause your ears to bleed, except at about 27:25 where I cut in Rebecca Black’s Friday at Adrian Scott’s request (@Dranthar on Twitter or Rathnard on the Wyrd forums).  This may be news to many of you, but Thursday comes before Friday, which is followed by Saturday and then Sunday.  I know, mind blown!

Episode 8 – Pre-Gencon Chat

Episode 8 has arrive, paradoxically before Episode 7!  In efforts not to distrupt the time/space continuum I have decided to release Episode 8 now, while it’s pertinent, before episode 7, which was recorded first.  If doing so causes a mighty asteroid to impact the Earth killing us all, let me apologize for the inconvenience in advance.

In Episode 8 Tao and Mark are joined by Adrian aka “Rathnard” for a quick chat before Mark and Adrian leave for Gencon. Find out all about our plans, hopes and dreams as we prepare for the Wyrd convention of the year.

Tales from Beyond the Breach is absent this week so as not to delay the release further, but it WILL be back in Episode 7: The Search for More Money.

Episode 1 – The Really Big Intro

Welcome to the Faux Show! Your hosts Dan, Tao, and Mark are excited to bring you this new podcast.  In this episode we introduce ourselves and how we met, share our first (sometimes hilarious) impressions of each other, as well as giving a quick run down of future segments we plan to regularly include in the show.  We finish it off with a discussion on Gottacon, a big convention in Victoria, BC which is coming up at the end of February.

As an aside, in future we’ll make a point of announcing breaks (musical interludes were a bit abrupt in this episode but I felt it better than letting the conversation run…).  Amateurs, ha!
