    Yes. It wasn't bad! Rorie needs to be a far more organized DM, that might help him be more engaging. It went much smoother than last time though, by the end everyone seemed to be having some fun with it. Especially Dan.

    I loved it because of this

    Dan really seemed to enjoy it and that was a blast

    To talk about more delightful podcasts

    In my journey through the MBMBAM backlog I was made aware of "Losing the Sheen", a short podcast Justin recorded with his wife Sydnee when they attempted to watch Two and a Half Men after Sheen left (they'd never watched any of it before)

    They work so well together as hosts that now I feel like I HAVE to pick up Sawbones

    Sawbones is fantastic. They also had a TV podcast called Satellite Dish, you should listed to the episodes about Tyra Banks' novel "Modelland".

    Everyone should listen to those episodes.

    Making people listen to Modelland is my favorite thing to do. I just like to watch their face as Sydnee tells Justin more about the book.

    "What?"

    "...What did she just say?!"

    Medical stuff grosses me the hell out

    ESPECIALLY old-timey procedures where they didn't know "boy we're really screwing this person up"

    I was half expecting a Vinny moment from the last time they played D&D when Dan decided he was going to throw his sword there.

    Molten variables hiss and roar. On my mind-forge, I hammer them into the greatsword Epistemology. Many are my foes this night.

    Like I'm listening to the Mormon episodes and like, I have no love for the Mormon religion

    But they keep insisting that they're coming at it with an open minded spirit but they're so clearly not

    It doesn't feel like they're investigating the religion to find out what it's like to join and it doesn't feel like they're putting forward a cohesive argument against Mormonism

    It just feels like they're being emotionally manipulative of a bunch of Mormons and asking them questions that they know they won't be able to answer and then sharing the experience so people can point and laugh at those dumb believers

    Oh wow

    Well that sounds like something I should avoid like the plague

    ....Or listen to, because apparently I'm curious about things I know will make me mad

    to be fair the ending made it

    slightly better

    they came clean with the missionaries they'd been jerking around and had a big long talk with them and agreed to continue meeting with each other and discussing stuff without the pretense that they were at all interested in converting to Mormonism

    I love medical history. One of my favorite courses in college was about the history of disease.

    Sawbones is like, tailor made for me. Except sometimes I am already familiar with the topic, and I'm more familiar with it than Sydnee is.

    As someone who's been on the other end of that kind of stuff I'm getting irritated just thinking about it

    That seems like a pretty long fucking time.

    I was going to check out that podcast but those people seem like giant assholes.

    Chugging is still totally possible

    Its just more expensive

    He will have to learn dodging though, yes

    To date im unsure if any of the GB people understand how invincibility frames workwork in those games

    Dan kept talking about rolling under attacks

    The Sawbones episodes about lobotomy and hysteria are probably the only ones that outright horrified me

    I expected the lobotomy one to be bad, but i was not aware of the etymology of the word hysteria before listening to that episode and holy fuck

    They are animation frames where you are invicible

    So while you dash there are points where you cant get hit

    A lot of people think this is what's happening in souls games

    or any game with a dodge roll

    See that is what I figured but I thought there might be more to it.

    I remember brad kind of explaining that to Dan. Or if might have been Jason.

    It isn't just not get hurt, though

    Critically, attacks that hit iframes pass through you

    The key to Souls dodging isn't avoiding attacks, it is timing your dodges correctly so the attack passes through your character harmlessly.

    It is actually very much of a rhythm, and with only perhaps two exceptions relies much more on that than pure reflex.

    My reflexes are shitty garbage so that is a huge reason why I love the series over stuff like character action games, which also have iframes typically, but are much quicker and more reflex based. I'm super awful at them.

    I only wore medium armor in ds1 for the looks and in case I messed up timing on a roll I didn't get gibbed.

    Though I got good at fast rolling in the stray demon fight which I did nude. And used havels ring the whole game so I could fast roll with elite knight armor on.

    The last time John Drake was on the podcast he leaned really hard into the "I think Dan is a moron" shtick.

    Like, to an unfunny, condescending degree.

    So it wouldn't surprise me if he thinks Dan is actually trying to get bootleg lasik.

    It's really weird playing a game where your roll doesn't have iframes.

    It keeps messing me up in Nosgoth.
