Square Roots - THE Classic RPG Podcast

Square Roots is like a book club, but for classic RPGs! Each episode John, Matthew, Jim and Vanessa play through another chunk of one of your favorite RPGs, from Final Fantasy through Chrono Trigger. Are they experts? No. Are they qualified? Absolutely not. Are they good at RPGs? Probably not. But they're the fun kind of dumb, and that's what counts.

THE Classic RPG Podcast, w/Jim Banks, John Brandon, Matthew Van Zandt & Vanessa

Feb 27, 2017

We're closing in on the end of Knights of the Old Republic in this episode as we head to the Sith Academy on Korriban. Is it a Saved By The Sith situation? A Sith Valley High scenario? This is an action and reference packed episode! Jolee becomes the breakout character of the game; John and Matt talk about shopping for five minutes, until Vanessa stops them; a debate on whether or not people would run into each other that often in huge galaxies; Jim accidentally does good and Vanessa accidentally goes evil; is Sith society sustainable; obscure references John makes that go over everyone else's heads include En Vogue, Mary J. Blige, Showgirls and Degrassi Junior High; Matthew reduces the academy to a pile of smoldering corpses; a special appearance from M. Night Shamaylan!

This week on Square Roots: We enroll in the Sith Academy on Korriban, and find the Star Map!

Next week on Square Roots: WE FINISH THE GAME

Things get started with a bang as we attempt to interview poor, gullable Gluupor for an unpaid internship. We explore the railroading that gets us captured, none of us are particularly bothered by Bastila's torture, we meet Discount Darth Vader face to face, Jolee gets to do some heroic mind tricks, and finally... yes, finally... we learn the truth about our character's roots in an exciting denuement! Also: is Alderaan really the Portland of Star Wars? Are Jedis basically ninjas? Did Bastila really have to sacrifice herself? 

This week on Square Roots: THE LEVIATHAN!

Next week on Square Roots: We navigate the twisty turns of Korriban!

Gluupor probably not fit to stand trial. Gluupor not even totally sure how Gluupor got to Manaan. Gluupor not an expert at interrogation. Gluupor also not super into logarithmic pairs. Other things Gluupor confused by: ancient fish gods; super slow underwater sections; solving mysteries; getting tried and convicted by a jury of fish people. Gluupor not understand any of this. Gluupor just wants to sit down and cry. Please let Gluupor cry. 

This week on Square Roots: We dive through the Costnery Waterworld of Manaan!

Do you like the sound of Wookies? You better, because on Kashyyk it's all Wookies all the time. Jim spent his time on the forest planet being kind of terrible at being terrible, while Vanessa was a good good woman and killed robots, we solve a mystery, fight some Cylons, figure out ideal specs for Jedis, and have Carth inexplicably get mad at us for no reason yet again. On the plus side the Wookies can totally go nuts and kill all the Czerka dudes, so hey!

This week on Square Roots: We greet the Wookies on Kashyyk!

Next week on Square Roots:We go under the sea! To Manaan!
