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

Sep 25, 2017

Final Fantasy XII Part 8

The next game is announced! And it's real bad. But maybe Matthew and Vanessa can have a chance to put right what once went wrong. We go deep inside Pharos which, as must be pointed out, is a large building and not the ghost kid from Persona 3. Questions addressed in this episode: do scarves cancel out fedoras? Is a boss really called Slit the Fish Monster? Have you tried a Final Fantasy XII cleanse? Did we just fight a Hatchimal? Will Vanessa make a million dollars with her Manse idea? What are Dude Wipes and why do they upset Vanessa anyway? What does Fy Forse Fints mean?

This week: We complete Pharos and get ready for the last adventure.
Next week: We finish Final Fantasy XII!

Final Fantasy XII Part 7

We dabble in converting the podcast to pure ASMR after Matthew was swept away in a hurricane. Questions asked in this episode: Is Daddy Cid really just Fancy Auron? Is Port Balfonheim a pleasant hive of scum and villany? Will Jim and John out themselves as Vayne Supporters after C** Fest '94? What the heck is a Manse? Can a three wheeled car really work?

This week: We travel through Draklor's Lab through to the gates of Pharos.
Next week: We finish Pharos!

Final Fantasy XII Part 5

Who would kill Judge Judy? We have the answer, and it's not who you think on this political intrigue packed episode of Square Roots: Topics included for your approval: Vanessa takes a third taco option; Sega conning John into buying $80 Yakuza games; sub-nipular body hair; one of our crew mixes up the words to Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer and Information Society's What's On Your Mind; hard hitting reporting on the hat-usage of Wus; and finally, a dungeon everyone likes!

This week: We clear out the Miriam Stillshrine!
Next week: We make the trek to Old Archaedia.
