Episode 146 - A Mobile Aid Station??! A Healbot??? I Think Not!

We are praying extra hard for this episode! Join DM’s Glen, Fulongamer and Brian as they explore the cleric in part three of their nine-part In Depth series! After answering some emails, the gents don their robes of ceremony and commence. First they delve into the cleric, then they discovering the powers of the green slaad, and then conclude with a Brainstorm about a temple complex.

I love the podcast, and have listened to every episode... But...

And I realize I am in the minority here, but I truly think that the "DM Brainstorm" segment needs it's own podcast, as THACO's Hammer touts itself as "The Best" 2nd Edition Podcast out there... Okay... While not a deal-breaker, that makes me want to rage quit listening to the podcast :lol: ;) But just exactly how is "DM Brainstorm" SPECIFIC to 2nd edition AD&D??

The stuff you come up with is cool and all, but it's just as usable for... I don't know... Every other TTRPG ever published as it is to D&D, let alone 2nd edition AD&D.

Don't get me wrong, the content is interesting for the most part, but I just think that the time could be better used to talk about, well, things specific to 2nd edition AD&D.

Just my proverbial 2 coppers that were never asked for. :halo:

We have thought about it, but its a bit of a murky subject because another podcast came out with a similar name, by Vince no less, shortly after we debuted Brainstorm. We have been talking about it, but its still in the talking stage.

I rather like the "Brainstorm" sections.... except for the eardrum-shattering intro STINGER.

I like the content as well. :)

But the internet has an abundance of podcasts and other sources dedicated to generalized gaming content, and so few precious sources that are specific to 2nd Edition AD&D alone.
