Return of the Podcast

Today, I am happy to share that the podcast is back. Here is a link to the first episode of its second season: The Odd DM Presents

Whatever Happened to This Old Sword?

All 16 episodes of the first season are available at: https://anchor.fm/sycarion

Many thanks to friends that helped me to get started like Spikepit, Gothridge Manor, Thought Eater, The Happy Whisk and Follow Me and Die.

Whatever Happened to John?

If you want to know details, I am happy to share. I was not as resilient as the Captain, but there a lot of work has been done to reclaim my identity.

I am grateful for a good therapist, a supportive community that invited me to share publicly, amd most of all, my wife. I could not have overcome without you!

Dice Throne: Yahtzee Meets D&D

You can find Dice Throne at Barnes & Noble or direct from their website.

Here is a video that shows you how to play Dice Throne Adventures.

I will post more as our weekly group gets going.

Pen and Paper Football Games

What is Statis-Pro Football? This is Board Game Geek's synopsis. Here is a quick playthrough.

There is an active group looking for players on facebook: UK Statis-Pro League. These guys are very friendly and helpful.

Not mentioned in the podcast is John M Stater's excellent Pen and Paper Football. This is best described as where OD&D meets American Football. It is a wonderful game I was privileged to playtest and I still play it.

Modding Statis-Pro Football Instead of 5e

Wherein I start working on 5E and end up modding Statis-Pro Football.

Spending the day at home while my wonderful spouse is in class. While my son is working on Math and the inner working of Tidal Power plants, I think about working on the 5e game in May.

Instead, I find myself calculating the Standard Deviation of several American Football running backs' rushing attempts. I have play by play stats from 2002 to 2017 (including Superbowl LII). I typed in the fateful words: Min, Max, Mean, Median, STDEV and start calculating.

I have long loved Statis-Pro Football because every player has a stat card. The rules for making cards are easily available. There are two leagues, that I know of, that still play fantasy football using Statis-Pro and homebrew rules for Salary Caps.

I wanted to find a way to remove the guesswork from some of the cardmaking and yet again, have come up empty. Oh well.

I guess my son and I were both doing math today. 🙂
