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 24, 2018

Okay, right off the bat - we're all kind of d*ck crazy in this episode because the news has been nothing but wieners. On this episode we deep dive into side quests and get some fancy armour that for some dumb reason Vanessa just can't wear. Plus: John's all-scamp boyband, Fantasy Shrevport, we pitch a new Avengers game, Jim and John embark on a pilgrimage, Mirror Universe Square Roots Where We're All In Leather And Making Out, and spy hunting!

This Week: We get the armor out of *Sancre Tor*!
Next Week: We close the Great Oblivion Gate!

Our theme for this series is Christopher Niskala's 8-bit Oblivion Chiptune Medley.

You'll have so many questions about Jim's terrible meme, but hopefully this episode will try to answer it. As we play through Bethesda's smash hit open world RPG, each host tries their best to be upsetting. First, Vanessa's choice of TV show disgusts the rest of the podcast. Second, Jim's terrible meme. Third, Matt's upsetting roleplaying of his cat Felix. And finally John decides to buy some waterfront property so he can truly start his SkullQuest.

This Week: We crash the Daedric Cult's party in the Dagon Shrine.
Next Week: We get the armor out of *Sancre Tor*!

Dust off that cloth map, it's time to head to Cyrodil! That's right, we're off to explore the verdant pastures and thrilling forests of Bethesda's Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion! Topics covered this week: Pee Stew, Vanessa's CSI problem, Matthew's naughty kitty Felix, Vanessa's slight Oblivion obsession, Sean Bean sightings, John blaming glitches for pretty much everything wrong with his life, and so much more!

This Week: We meet Brother Martin and rescue him from Kvatch in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion!
Next Week: We play until you interrupt the ceremony with the Path of Dawn cult in the Dagon shrine!

It's all Sondheim all the Sond-time on this episode of Square Roots! We learn about Sondheim's famous love of breasts, his pioneering of reverse-alley staging (and the sex position), and his improvised piano songs in a series of completely true facts that were not made up. OH. We also finish Final Fantasy VI! TAKE THAT KEFKA, YOU THIRD RATE FINAL FANTASY VILLAIN. While we may be down on mimes, clowns, and clown-mimes we are definitely all for what might be the single best final boss battle of any Final Fantasy game. Add to that questions about the ancient queen's love of Odin (was the horse part of it?) and the introduction and thorough dissection of Gogo, you have an amazing end to a fantastic game.

This Week: We finish Final Fantasy VI!
Next Week: We meet Brother Martin and rescue him from Kvatch in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion!
