The Accidental Survivors: Special Episode
Rob and the players of his Pathfinder game sit around and talk about the game, their characters, how things are going, order pizza, talk with Rob's son about Minecraft (mostly edited out) and generally shoot the breeze.
If you want to comment about this (or any other episode) you can always email Rob at firstname.lastname@example.org or catch him on Twitter @accidentalrob.

We are still alive, as the title suggests. Just a little note, and audio, letting you know that we aren't podfading. We'll be back as soon as we get our lives in order.
If you miss us, head on over to accidentalsurvivors.com and tell us so. Stroke our egos, it might help us schedule a recording!

Special Episode - Playing with Fantasy Grounds 2, Part I
Hold on to your hats. This is part one of a three-part Actual Play that we did in order to review the virtual tabletop program, Fantasy Grounds 2. You'll recognize Rob and Fraser, but we've also brought Rob's wife Melodie and his old friend Darcy along for the ride.
Sorry - but there will be more to come.

The Accidental Survivors Podcast is holding a contest for modern gaming ideas, sponsored by RPG Objects. The idea can be anything, as big as a setting or campaign to as small as a single character or piece of equipment. Use your imagination! What about a criminal organization or an evil corporation? Perhaps a cocktail! Just about anything is grist for this mill.
The idea should be presented in a one-page synopsis of no more than 500 words. If the idea includes a mechanical component, those mechanics need to be described in a system-neutral manner--so that an individual who does not know the system will understand the impact of the mechanics.
Each submission must be in PDF format and include the entrant's name, address, email address and telephone number. There is a limit of one submission per person. The deadline for entries is Saturday January 31, 2009.
Send your submissions to email@example.com.
Winners will be announced Tuesday, February 17, 2009. There will be three winners--first, second and third place. The winners will be contacted by email before officially announced on the Accidental Survivors podcast. The prizes include print copies of Blood and Fist, Blood and Relics, and Modern Backdrops from RPG Objects.

Accidental Survivors: the Modern Gaming Podcast
All music in podcast by Mindscape Music
Too long for bloopers, too crappy for the actual podcast, Fraser took a bunch of stuff from the cutting room floor and shoved it into your MP3 player. Chris said it was all golden. Let's see how golden that might be.
This is worse than most Accidental Survivors podcasts, so if you value your sanity at all, you'll walk away. Do not play this around people, even if they don't speak English. The profanity and insanity will infect even those who can't comprehend this pure horror.
Oh, and do I need to say Not Safe For Work?

E. Gary Gygax, one of the creators of Dungeons & Dragons, passed away on Tuesday, March 4, 2008. We at Accidental Survivors wanted to add our voices to the multitude remembering a man pivotal to our hobby.
Some other thoughts can be found in my blog.

It started out as a rant about the Planet of the Apes movie by Tim Burton, and it became so much more.
