Accidental Survivors: The Modern Gaming Podcast
Three Canadian geeks distracted by bright, shiny objects. Or beer.

The shocuments were lost due to Libsyn being a total bitch, and Rob doesn't feel like re-writing them.

Episode 67: A Little Bit of Conan for Everyone.

Explicit! Have a listen!

Players Options; Heroes of the Feywild, The Opening.

Rob spends some quality time with a package from Wizards of the Coast, inside which he finds a copy of "Players Options; Heroes of the Feywild". Come with us on this magical journey as he flips through the book for the first time, gets confused about what he's looking at, and eventually collapses on the ground in a drunken stupor, babbling on about faeiries and dump trucks.

Watch it here.

Brett commissioned artwork of naked cat girls

Kiss My Axe and Sword Noir at Games on Demand rocked hard

What Happens in Indianapolis stays in Indianapolis, unless it's VD

Brett recommends Game of War (or The War Game)
