2018-12-26 Episode 08

Podcast Second half of the Christmas episode! We’re still on the page with the equipment. This time we’re talking about items: items to fight monsters and oil in particular. How do we use flaming oil? How much can you carry? Encumbrance and the rule of cool. Also: why is plate armour so cheap?

Note: the audio file was updated 2019-02-08 because it didn’t play correctly in the browser and elsewhere. I’m assuming many people were affected and just didn’t listen to the episode. If you’re one of the lucky few for whom it worked, then you might get the same episode served again, I presume. Sorry about that! Then again, I didn’t see it again on my podcast app so perhaps the unlucky ones that never got to see it, will continue not seeing it. All of this is very weird, unfortunately.

I’m really enjoying these, Alex. Which is why I’m telling that I think you linked episode 7 on your episode 8 post.

Whoops! Fixed. :)

Oh, and I noticed that the first seconds of the fixed episode were garbled: basically my new intro was simply overlapping the beginning of the episode instead of getting prepended. 🙄 Well, should be fixed now (but without a new publishing date because I think it works well enough as is so no need to download again).
