Episode 5 – Visions of Flame

In Episode 5 Dan is MIA, while Tao and Mark debut a new segment discussing our experiences playing our crews, with this episode showcasing Sonnia and Von Schill.  Brown Warrior’s Gamer Talk touches on keeping it fresh and not getting burnt out on a game.  Tao revisits his chat with Bill from the Gamer’s Lounge (Episode 88 if you’re WWX curious) and we wrap up with some local banter.  We were hoping to get some recording done with Dan for some info on Walpurgis which is fast approaching but it will have to wait until next episode.

We hope you enjoy!

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!

Arrogant Worms – Canada’s Really Big

I’ll just leave this here: Dan drunkenly accepting the award for Best (and only) Tomb Kings player in Vegas a few years back.  He really does Canada proud.
