QPP018: The Role of Roleplaying (London Comic Con 2018)

At Comic-Con we chatted with Gomer, the dungeon master in Pat's Star Wars roleplaying game adventures long ago! We've talked about their epic campaign on many occasions, and we finally got the chance to pick his brain on the show. We talked about his earliest Star Wars memory (22nd in line to see A New Hope in theatres in 1977), storytelling, and using roleplaying games to weave your own Star Wars adventures.

Check out Gomer's books at The Green Man & The Goddess!

QPP 045: Empire Strikes Back Review

With its fortieth anniversary behind us now, Chris and Pat sat down to dissect The Empire Strikes Back - what many consider to be the best Star Wars movie ever made (including one of our hosts). As with our New Hope review, we discuss our own very first impressions of the movie from our childhoods, and compare to our current reactions. Then we dive into each character's arc, discuss the technical impact of the film, and reassess its overall legacy - and hit on a dozen other points along the way.How have more recent canon entries like Solo: A Star Wars Story changed our perspective on this adventure? Does the timeline make any sense? What other voice does Pat hear when Yoda speaks? Does Boba Fett deserve the legacy he created for himself on this small first appearance? Tune in for answers on all of these topics and more, on the only Star Wars podcast that has been known to make mistakes... from... time to time.(Note: April's Patreon bonus is our full movie commentary for Empire Strikes Back, so check out our Patreon page to see how you can help support the network and gain access to this reward!)* * * * *Follow uson Facebook,on Twitter @kyberclub, andInstagram @quarterportionpodcast!Join the conversation onour Discord server!Become a patron of the show withPatreonto help shape our future & access bonus content!Thanks toDaniel Loganfor our intro!Take oursurvey (via Podtrac)!If you enjoyed this episode, please Like it, tell your friends, and considerleaving us a review on iTunes!Your opinions are worth sixty portions to us - send us your questions and suggestions, so we can read them on the air!
