Just because we haven’t released an episode lately, doesn’t mean we aren’t gaming or keeping up with gaming news.
So when we heard about this, we wanted to share the opportunity with you.

I was surprised the other day when I got a message on our voicemail account. I wasn’t sure it was even still active! The caller wanted at the very least our back archive of shows, but to also come back.
I haven’t talked with the others lately, so I’ll have to get back to you on the returning part. However, I am putting together an RSS feed of our old episodes for people who are interested.
If you are interested in what I (David) am doing now, head over to The Secret Lair, where I’ll be having weekly posts, and should show up a time or two on the podcast.
If any of you out there are interested in helping out getting the old shows out again, comment here and let me know. I’ve got some work for you.
It’s been waaay to long since we’ve put anything out. I’ve been pretty busy, and unfortunately the rest of the crew and I haven’t been able to even talk lately, much less game. However…
Erin and I will be at Gen Con, and the plan had been for Mario and Dan to make it as well. I haven’t talked to them in a while, so I don’t know if schedules changed for them at all. I hope to meet up with them this weekend, and perhaps some of you.
I’ll be running four games of Hellas (all sold out according to Gen Con), on Thursday and Friday morning and afternoon. Then playing Sparks (Star Wars d6) with Erin on Saturday. The rest of the time I hope to be putting in hanging out with people, gaming, and perhaps meeting Wil Wheaton. (I’d like to game with that guy if I could. It would be awesome if he could play Time and Temp with us. )
So if any of you are coming, comment below! I’ll read them and see about meeting up with people. If not, I hope to have lots to talk about after I get back.
Scheduling continues to kick us while we are down. We’ve got another episode in editing though, and that will come out soon.
We had the chance to talk with Jerry Grayson recently. To be fair, Jerry tracked us down, ducked taped us all to chairs and did unspeakable things. Like eat in front of us in his underwear. No really, we have pictures!
After he let us go though, for some reason we felt compelled to continue talking with him. Must be Stockholm syndrome or something.
We talked with him about the newest Hellas expansion, Princes of the Universe. We posted about the Kickstart in an earlier post. I am happy to say that it has made it’s goal! So we will be seeing it in it’s full color print glory soon.
In addition to Princes of the Universe, we did our best rabid dolphin impression, like we did with Fred Hicks, and talked about a wide range of topics (some gaming, some not). We look forward to seeing him at Gen Con, and hope you do to at one of the games he is running. Until then though, enjoy our episode!

Most of the crew is back, and we’re up for our second show. We talk about why we had such a long hiatus, where we’ve been while we were away, and then talk about the future of the podcast.
Welcome back peeps, and to those new listeners, welcome aboard!
Edit: Just so you all know, we’ve already recorded episode 3 even though scheduling woes still seem to be plaguing us. As soon as Dan can edit it, we’ll post up episode 3.

Now fans of the show have heard the names Jerry (Delicious) Grayson and Mike Fiegel. You’ve heard us play their games. I feel pretty safe in saying the we here have had a real good time playing the games and talking with them. Hellas their current project has been out long enough for people to start asking/demanding more. The ever popular, “When is the next book coming out?” Well I got an email from Jerry (aka Delicious) Grayson with some exciting news.
“I have the latest book in the HELLAS line done and I’ve decided to try and do a Kickstart model to fund it. Please spread the word to anyone who may be interested in a sci-fi game about naked Greek dudes stabbing people, eating goat meat, and drinking malt liquor.”
That’s right more Hellas goodness and it’s being ransomed. In fact if you check the link above or below you can find out all the details. We here at The Game Master Show are big fans of Hellas and of Jerry and Mike. They have been very supportive of us. So if you have liked what you heard about Hellas or even the designers themselves give the above link a click, check it out, and pledge if you can. Hell if you see the break downs there are some great deals to be had by pledging her support, starting with as little as $1.
So we met last Friday to talk about the podcast and ended up failing to save the world, but then tried again and saved it. I’m talking about Pandemic here, the cooperative board game where you play roles in the CDC to find the cure for four virii before they spread to pandemic proportions and kill off the world as we know it. It’s a great game.
This isn’t a game review though, we just wanted to let you guys know that though we met last Friday we didn’t actually record. Dan wasn’t able to make it, and Erin was just about dead on her feet from work. So we talked a while and played Pandemic to remind ourselves that we are friends and yes, we really do want to do this podcast thing.
Mario and Shaun looked good, and we talked about some of the hurdles that we are going to need to overcome if we are going to continue the podcast. Like: Job scarcity, the distance it is from them to the place we record (my house), scheduling, and possible changes in format (looks like there will be little of that).
So next Friday, that would be April 30th, we are going to see about recording… something. It may be actual play, it may just be a couple of us talking. We shall have to see. It’s still something we do for fun, and we don’t make money off of it (the job scarcity part would probably be easier if we did), so please bear with us as we get closer to the launch of season 4.
