Justin, Travis and Griffin McElroy from My Brother, My Brother and Me have recruited their dad Clint for a campaign of high adventure. Join the McElroys as they find their fortune and slay an unconscionable number of ... you know, kobolds or whatever in ... The Adventure Zone..
We’re off on holiday this week, but we’ve got a special treat to tide you over. See, earlier this year, we developed an ambitious one-page RPG titled Dadlands, a post-apocalyptic dad-based survival sim. Then, in July, we convinced Dimension 20 DM Brennan Lee Mulligan to run a game for us. What you’re about to hear is the impossibly rowdy result of that experiment.
What do you get when you cross the North Pole, Jason Statham, A Christmas Carol, and the wildly inscrutable plotting of the Metal Gear Solid franchise? Well, you get this live show. Whether or not that’s something you actually want is up to you. This episode’s game is The Fight Before Christmas by Paul Matijevic (@Ettin64), which is a hack of Lasers & Feelings by John Harper.
Happy MaxFunDrive 2020 everyone! It's time for another The The Adventure Zone Zone! We answer a whole bunch of your questions! But the real question we answer are the friendships we make along the way!
This is not an episode of The Adventure Zone! We’ve got a quick trailer for The Besties, a gaming podcast featuring Justin, Griffin, and their pals (and Polygon co-founders) Chris Plante and Russ Frushtick. They’ve been doing the show for a while, but relaunched this year as a Spotify Original! You can listen and follow the show for free at Besties.fan.
We didn’t get to record at our usual time due to weather and power outages, so in lieu of a regular episode this week, we dug into the archives and found TAZ: Just Us, a live show Travis GM'd in 2019 in Atlanta!
For this show we played SuperNormal (designed by Ursidice), and our crew of super heroes attended just your average, every day company picnic...
We’re answering some questions about The Adventure Zone: Graduation, both listener questions and questions we had for each other. We also talk a little bit about the next season and how we’re changing things up in terms of world-building.
The game we will be playing as the opener to the next season is The Quiet Year, designed by Avery Alder. You can learn more about the game here: https://buriedwithoutceremony.com/the-quiet-year
