4. Podcast News

A) Heroic Cthulu
Logan posted on the ForgedRPG forums to tell us about this actual play podcast. These are recorded sessions of table top roleplaying games using a heavily modified BRP (basic role play) system used by Chaosium's Call of Cthulu. See the boards at

B) Monarch Comic Briefing
The Monarch Comics Briefing is one of the podcasts from those guys over at Fist Full of Comics and Games. It's got Tangent (Victor) and Ed from the Monarch Comics store. I'm not collecting comics any more, but I'm very interested in them and I still pick up a few. This podcast keeps me up to date, and has really opened my eyes regarding some titles I otherwise would have missed. Just one thing: I haven't heard them mention Nextwave, Agents of HATE. This may pose a problem. You can find the podcast at
