Episode 92: RPG's with Bryan and Sarah! - Part One!
You have walked this path many times in your life. the woods know you, and you, in turn, know the woods. the path you take has been worn thin from years of use. So many years, in fact, that you could easily traverse this path blindfolded. However, this day, it seems, would be different. Deep within your own thoughts, you trip over a large rock that has never been on this path before. Curious, you inspect the strange obstacle closer. The rock appears to be just that... A normal rock. Yet, as you pick it up, it feels warm to the touch despite the rather cold fall weather that is normal for this time of year. Suddenly, your mind goes quiet. All thought ceases, and you hear one singular voice within your own mind. A deep, raspy voice. A voice not your own... "You have found me, traveler. Ask of me your wish, that my destiny may finally be fulfilled... And that your destiny may begin." As the voice fades from your mind, you hear the snapping of twigs off of the path proper. As you turn to look for the source of the sound, you see a small band of goblins approaching, weapons drawn. Shaking with fear and excitement, you reach down at your right hip to find a short sword at your side that you don't recall being there before. Without question, you draw your blade, light gleaning from the almost mirror-like finish. Every muscle begins to tense in your body, and you now finally realize, in this one singular moment... that your wish has been granted. Roll for initiative. - As you could probably tell from the above, today's episode is all about RPG's! Returning guest Bryan and first time guest Sarah sit down with us to talk about role playing games! We start out by talking about our first experiences with RPG's ( Dungeons and Dragons seems to have been the popular first) and then we touch on MMO's and if they really fit into the genere of RPG's! Enjoy part one! END OF LINE

Side Quest Number 10: Ready Player One!
Greetings, Programs! Over the weekend, the Mrs. and I went to see Ready Player One! I am planning on doing a more in-depth review of it later on (after I re-read the book) but, I will give a brief review here... It was OK. It was maybe 4% of the book with about 2% of the pop culture references that are in the book, and they didn't explain why the movie title was Ready Player One like they did in the book. But, it was a fun adventure, and if you never read the book (for shame!) you will still be able to enjoy the film, maybe even more so than those of us who have read it. Holy frak... I'm now in the same boat as the LOTR fans... Anyway, enjoy this Side Quest podcast, and let us know what you thought of the movie! END OF LINE

Episode 81: Interview with Darryl Banks!
Today we bring you our interview with THE MAN himself, Darryl Banks! Our BossMonkey sits down with Darryl at the 2016 Gem City Comic Con to talk about how Mr. Banks got into drawing comic books, and some of the inspiration behind his most famous creation, the Green Lantern Kyle Rayner (Troy's favorite Green Lantern)! "At first, I was extremely nervous and shy!" Troy says about the interview. "But after we got started, and Darryl was telling me about how he fanboy's out over meeting his favorite artists, it helped me realize that he was a fan just like me. Only he created Kyle Rayner." Check out a sample of Darryl's work at http://comicartcommunity.com/gallery/categories.php?cat_id=181 We must also apologize about the audio quality of this episode. Shortly after the interview started recording, one of the mics on our Tascam went out. We hope that does not take anything away from the enjoyment of this awesome interview! ENJOY! END OF LINE

Basically, I need to get my life back together from the aftermath of the medication I was on, and a sacrifice needed to be made... and the site and podcast lost.
