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!

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.
