TGE Watches Wonder Woman Summer continues and the biggest summer movie of the year is the feature on the latest episode of TGE Watches!* <do doo dut do> Wonder Woman! <do doo dut do> But seriously folks, this summer’s Wonder Woman movie has been the topic of much debate and discussion all over the internets. As a long time fan with a very serious personal connection to Wonder Woman, I’ll be the first to admit that I was worried how well my favorite Amazon princess might be treated on the big screen. I’m thankful for the outcome. As usual, we discuss the movie in great detail.
Greetings from the other side of E32017! I’m relieved to report that I did, in fact, survive my first time attending E3! But barely. The schedule was insane, I walked my feet off, and saw more cool video game demos than I can imagine. Huge thanks to Engaged Family Gaming for letting me tag along. Beyond the con hanging out with such great people made the whole trip worthwhile. BUT! Hold onto your game controllers! I don’t only have great memories to share (and some deeper thoughts I’ll come back to at a later time!) but we also podcasted each night of the con on
Did someone say Goblin Battle??!! Episode 5 left our adventurers in a bit of a pickle. In fact, in the business we call that a cliff hanger. After scouting out a Goblin camp, the group discovers that there is a survivor being held captive by the gang of goblins they followed after finding signs of the previous scouting party. A goblin battle prevails! This episode finds our heroes in some real trouble, fighting tooth and nail for the sake of the group. We have some fun rolls, some crazy things happen, and we all have great fun. We sure hope you enjoy watching! Until next
Parental Figures Have All the Fun You love them… most of the time. Some are good, some are bad, some are so good we tear up talking about them. For this hangout, we share our favorite parental figures from TV shows, movies, and books. We combined May and June’s hangout into one epic conversation. I had the idea to talk about favorite moms for May’s hangout since we were scheduled to record around Mother’s Day. When we had to reschedule, it made sense to make it a May and June parental figures celebration. Each of us came with a different set of priorities and considerations
Finding the Path: Episode 5 of The Keeper of the Dead Saga Greeting Geeks! Finding the path is the next move in our adventurers’ journey. It’s not a clear move forward after running into a giant spider nest but our adventurers persevere. They find new complexities await them at the base of the mountains. Each episode takes them closer to the final dangers they will face. The road is not clear and easy; instead, it is covered with dead and decaying forest but also some more dangerous and sentient creatures. As the new player to pen and paper role playing campaigns, I make sure to
Denizens of the Vastwood: Episode 4 of The Keeper of the Dead Saga Greetings Geeks! Have you been anxiously awaiting the next chapter in our journey? Wait no longer, dear adventurer! Episode 4 of our adventure takes our traveling band of would be heroes deeper into the darkness of the Vastwood. We encounter more than a few dangerous creatures in this leg of our journey. Episode 3 – Perils of the Gartooth Swamp – saw our first fight so we pick up this episode amidst the fallout from that fight. The denizens of Vastwood are less than welcoming. Each of our characters reacts differently to the
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 The Geek Embassy starts a new series: Watches. Every month, Mark, Ryan, and I will share our thoughts and critiques of some summer blockbuster movies. We launch the series with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 because of course. We start out our discussion with initial impressions which come back favorable. Ryan mentions the concern that the movie might become the “Baby Groot Show” and how the clever intro sequence put those concerns to rest. From there we spend some time talking about what we love about the movie (a lot) and what we disliked (not much). We were
The Perils of Gartooth Swamp And away we go where the perils abound! This week finds our adventurers in the thick of the action. Hargath, Sevarka, Nera, and Freya finally on foot entering the swamp and they run into their first foe. The excitement builds in this episode as our adventurers begin to understand the depth of the dangers present in the Vastwood. But our party will not be intimidated by the size of the foes they will fight! No! We will press ever onward. Don’t miss this episode where you can see Nera (Regina) roll terribly but still swing a big axe, watch Sevarka (Dante)
Episode 2 – Flotsam 7 Jetsam Greetings Geeks! We continue our role play adventure with the next segment in our Pathfinder campaign. We begin the journey we started in our first episode, after spending the night in the Vagabond’s Rest deep in the Vastwood. Our adventurers start on the first leg of their journey after being bestowed a map from their employer, Ruchior. The party seeks a guide and safe passage down the treacherous rain-swollen Varidan River and into the wilds beyond. Join us as we learn to play Pathfinder and enjoy this story crafted for us by Evan. Until next time, get your geek on!
Greetings Fellow Adventurers! On this holiest of geeky holidays, International Tabletop Day, The Geek Embassy welcomes you to follow us on a Pathfinder role play adventure. Isabela, Mark, Dante and I will take our newly rolled characters on an adventure hand crafted for us by Evan Graham. In today’s intro video, we share with you our character backstories, and a few hints about the story we will be exploring. This campaign will be a journey in exploration and learning for me. This is my first ever pen and paper role play experience. I’ve wanted to jump into a true role playing game since I started
