Miskatonic University Radio Episode 42: Where The Gods Dwell

Image
Where *do* the Gods dwell?


Definitely nowhere near densely populated areas. Or near humans of any sort. Take it from the Gods: be safe and comfy in your home for now. Maybe stock up on food, though. Gods don't need food, but we do.


... while you're at home being safe from contagion and non-believers, check out MUR episode 42! Let's talk about the player cards in the newest mythos pack: Where The Gods Dwell!

Image
Investigators!

Welcome to the third part of the Investigators of Arkham Series! In this episode we're talking about Rogues! Have you ever wanted to do back flips off of the roof of a 1920's automobile firing twin derringers into a mass of writhing tentacles? How about running, screaming back to your jungle camp in terror when your group of investigators encounters a small, mildly poisonous snake? Why not both??

Join us this episode as we talk about the investigators who love money, booze and running away from your problems!

Miskatonic University Radio Episode 40: Point of No Return

Image
Investigators!

Do you like plot points? Point and click adventure games? English pointers? Point Break, the movie? Well, too bad, because this pack has nothing to do with them whatsoever! What it does have, though, is new player cards! Remember those investigators you played two months ago? Dust off those decks and lets get to talking about the new player cards in Point of No Return!

Miskatonic University Radio Episode 39: Deckbuilding and Doorknobs with Tim from I've Got A Plan!

Image
Investigators!

It's MUR episode 39! Today, we don't have a map for where we're going...

... However we do have a guest on the cast today who will guide us through this uncharted deckbuilding territory. No, it's not Larry Anderson, the Expedition Leader-- it's Tim from the I've Got A Plan podcast!

Hold on to your cherished keepsakes this episode, as Tim challenges us to build a deck for an investigator whom none* of the MUR staff are familiar with!

Check Tim's podcast out on Youtube here: I've Got A Plan! and check it out on Soundcloud! If you want to save yourself the suspense, check out the decklist here!

*: (Ben may or may not have made a list for this investigator once a very long, long time ago. Even Ben can't remember what it looked like or how it went...)       

Miskatonic University Radio Episode 38: The Dark Side of the Moon!

Image
Pssst

Hey, you.

Yeah, you. 

MUR is back with episode 38, where we talk about the player cards in the newest pack: The Dark Side of the Moon! -- No clapping, though, just happy jazz hands. Yeah, just like that. Now you might be thinking-- How can we host a podcast where we talk about all the cards without sound? Well, dear listener, we just do. Does that mean we generate our own atmospheres complete with oxygen for sound waves to travel to your ears? Are we transmitting these messages right into your brain via telepathy? Probably not. But always remember:

"In space, everyone can hear you review cards"

Miskatonic University Episode 36: (Exactly) One Thousand Shapes of Horror and PAXU Blob Appreciation!

Image
Investigators,

Welcome to Episode 36! In this episode we talk about shapes! We, here at MUR, always want you to be prepared. We've taken the time to put together a primer on shapes for you, to get your mind in the zone for the episode.

  ... and by "put together", I mean google. Very hastily.

These aforementioned shapes are none other than the player cards in the newest scenario pack: A Thousand Shapes of Horror!

In addition: We want to provide a HUGE shout-out to all those who came to the MUR PAX Unplugged The Blob That Ate Everything events! It was wonderful seeing everyone-- we had 48 in attendance over both days, and we have you, the attendees, the incredible PAXU Enforcers team and the amazing Colin George to thank! A special shout out to E. Hare and NJ who made our space to play possible! Though our Friday night group met an unfortunate demise, Saturday's investigators successfully fought off the blob with ~36 minutes to spare!

Here's some photos from the e…

#BlackestFridayContest Update and PAX Unplugged Events: The Blob That Ate Everything!

Hey everyone!
Just providing a ONE WEEK REMINDER that we and Colin George will be hosting The Blob That Ate Everything at PAX Unplugged this year! We have two spreadsheets to sign up with that I'll include further down in the post. 
We're planning on starting the Friday event at 8pm and the Saturday event by 11am. We're planning to be set up for 7:45pm on Friday and on Saturday at 10:30am, so that we can have time to provide promos, take giveaway signups and have everyone situated. Keep in mind that the fight against The Blob has a maximum time limit of 3 hours! This means, with the giveaway drawing upon completion of the event, the absolute latest each event would go is ~11:15 on Friday and ~2:15 on Saturday. 
In addition: I'll be making up an emergency cache of decks for anyone who forgets a deck or brings a friend who doen't have a deck to play, but want to participate. Information on the extra decks will be in the Saturday spreadsheet!
