  1. This Day In History – Ryan’s Discovery

    July 20, 2009 by nick

    Listener Ryan (not to be confused with Engineer Ryan) has discovered a hidden scroll in the bowels of the Amazon rain forest. Although four members of his party were killed by the traps and guardians left by the ancients, he was able to translate this message from the hieroglyphics:

    Today is the 10th anniversary of the first ever reported Live Action Role Playing (LARPing) fatality. It was reported that ten years ago today a group of American college students studying abroad in China were killed while LARPing. Apparently the students were avid D&D players back in the States, and continued their obsessive role playing while abroad. However, on the evening of July 20th, 1999 the students decided to take their obsession a step farther. Realizing that they were in the land of monks, and presumably shadow monks, they decided to pursue a LARP game in the hills of China. Fortunately for the beginning LARPers the Wizards of the Coast had recently released their new D&D expansion Forgotten Scrolls which featured “far east” characters and recreated powers based on Chinese folklore. So the students, donning their home made Shaolin robes, plastic foam swords, and Chow Yun Fat pony tails they headed into the forests on the outskirts of of the city. The group split into factions and began playing their game. Running through the forests shouting “+2 damage!” and attempting their best kung fu panda impressions frightened the locals. Chinese authorities, fearing that this was a Tibetan monk uprising against the Communistical Chinese government, responded quickly to the forest where they first found 16 empty 2-liter Mountain Dew bottles strewn around the rough “camp site” that the students were using. As the students, returning to replenish themselves with the Mountain Dew, Chinese authorities, who had taken up positions in the trees around the site, would fire repeatedly upon the unsuspecting LARPers. All students in the group were gunned down in this way. The Chinese authorities only comment was, “we expected much more from a group of level 18 half elf monks.” And that is this day in history for July 17th.

    Thanks, Ryan! With help from listeners like you we will fully uncover the important histories of our world.

  4. Busy Times At Clikit Or Tikit

    Greetings, listener!

    As you may or may not have noticed, we have not been quite as active as we had been for the previous several weeks. We are very much aware of this, and have tried our best to keep up with the high standards we have set for ourselves. Unfortunately, this week – and potentially next week – are going to be particularly busy at our other employment. This is something that may happen from time to time until this podcast becomes so successful that all we have to do is podcast and roll in money.

    So, please bear with us, as we may not have daily content for the next couple weeks. This is not a permanent situation, and before August we should be right back to our usual breakneak pace.

    Thanks for listening.
