Episode 020: Tabletop RPGs and Stonecunning, feat. Ted Brandt

Ep. 20

In part two of a two-part series, Ted Brandt (one half of the artistic duo Brandt & Stein, artists on Princeless, Raven the Pirate Princess and the upcoming Steve Rogers: Captain America #10 and Champions: Monsters Unleashed) is here to talk about tabletop RPGs. Along the way, we discuss how scrumping is less fun when you’re surrounded by angry livestock instead of apples, how, with the right combination of spells, a sorcerer can become Spider-Man, and a criminally underrated artist… that everyone already knows about.  Signature Cocktail: the Trap Door  You gain intuitive insight into the workings of traps. In addition, you gain an insight bonus equal to one-half your caster level (maximum +10) on Search checks made to find traps while the drink is in effect. Note the tasty beverage grants no ability to find your feet.  1oz vodka 1oz spiced rum 1/2oz lime juice 2oz orange juice* 1oz club soda or sparkling mineral water Combine all ingredients except club soda in a beaker with ice and stir to combined. Strain into a double old fashioned glass, add fresh, then top up with club soda. Garnish with lime wedge.  *if you want to make the drink a little fancier, swap half the orange juice with mango or peach juice. Or use flavoured vodka! This drink can handle variation.  Follow Ted on Twitter at @ten_bandits, follow the show at @TheMathOfYou, and my wacky adventures at @lokified.
