Barney returns to connoisseur (read: niche) #ttrpg broadcasting with a few kind-of-reviews of some fine indie publications, a report on his new project, Biosphere Guardians 2050, and throws in some reflections on life, family, friendship and just hanging out for good measure. Show notes and links to come!
Beige of Glory Part 2 (League of Eternal Guardians actual play)
Things hot up for Colin, Scott, Spencer and Andy - the "old farts" of Grizzly Peaks Radio - as they scramble to prevent the Mirabilis land speed record race from unleashing eldritch evil! Thrills abound! Warning: contains adult content. Special thanks to Andy for doing the FX.

The 1st Amanda & Barney Show!!!
Amanda joins Barney as co-host for the first time. Their "evergreen" topic in this episode is character creation. They also give some updates about current projects and recommend Patrick Stuart's Silent Titans, Luka Rejec's Ultraviolet Grasslands and Donn Stroud, Fiona Maeve Geist and Sean McCoy's Mothership module Dead Planet. There are also messages from Jason Connerley of Nerd's RPG Variety Cast to respond to. So many indie games and game designers are mentioned it's mind melting. (If we forgot you, get in touch and we'll see what we can do.) Leave us (or send us) a voice message (via Anchor or elsehow) about character creation, scenarios or anything.

More Shoreline Regression!
Barney shares some of his recent gaming news, including the new amazing actual play group, End of Plays, that he's started with Tarren, Quinn, Chris, Spencer (and hopefully Lexie). This flows into an update on Neo-Triassic Shoreline Regression Syndrome, enhanced by messages from Karl R (GMologist Presents...), Jason C (Nerd's RPG Variety Cast) and Joe R (Hindsightless). There's mention of Jacob Wood and his Survival of the Able and other RPGs Cypher, PbtA and Viking Death Squad. Next time I'll be back with amazing co-host, Amanda P (check out her recent games Pilgrimage of the Sun Guard and Tannic on itch.io).
