Intrepid Heroes 126 – Wait! There’s More!

This episode starts with a delightful segment in which Ron plays a series of infomercial hypesters. He’s very good at it. I would have a closet full of Shamwows and Slapchops if Ron was selling them.


Now You Know – February 12th to 23rd
By Ryan Costello

Continuing to experiment with titling the Now You Knows without editorials. I prefer to full day range version.

Game Design Unboxed 83: Home

Doug Levandowski and Yeonsoo Julian Kim describe their co-design, Home, as an RPG, but I’m not sure that’s the right fit. It certainly sounded fascinating, and I’d love to try it, particularly with Cathy.


Eldritch Excursion – A Half Century Strong
By Nate Wright

Nate celebrates his 50th Eldritch Excursion with a new Pathfinder2e class that sucks harder than anything he’s ever designed. Because it’s a vampire class, you see.

Digital Divination 103 – Switching to a New Edition

I confess, the titles of the last few Digital Divinations have blended together to me, but every one has featured a riveting conversation that expands beyond Starfinder to cover a lot of the RPG industry.

Essential Builds – Indiana Jones
By Ryan Costello

I’ve been thinking about this build for a few months. I missed the chance to time it to the Disney+ release of Dial of Destiny, and then felt like I missed the chance to time an airbender build to the live action Avatar series on Netflix this week. But with reviews being mixed in both cases, my mistiming probably didn’t hurt readership.

Upshift 030 – Renegade Con 10 News

Since Renegade Con 10 is also March 1st, expect this podcast reviewing it to be a day or two late.

What started as one gamer wanting to talk about his love of a game grew into a podcast network. Ryan founded what would become the Know Direction Podcast network with Jason "Jay" Dubsky, his friend and fellow 3.5 enthusiast. They and their game group moved on to Pathfinder, and the Know Direction podcast network was born. Now married and a father, Ryan continues to serve the network as the director of logistics and co-host of Upshift podcast, dedicated to the Essence20 RPG system he writes for and helped design.
