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

Jan 28, 2019

Get all of the taint juice in your mouth in this savory, sweaty episode of Square Roots! Matthew is sick, but we experience the joining, meet Matthew's new girlfriend Morrigan, have some good times with Momma Janeway, John riffs on Bann Tegan in a very confusing way, Jim makes some GIF-able moments, and we rescue Bohdan and Sandal! So many exciting adventures are contained within. Also: Vanessa meets Alistair!

This Week: We travel to Lothering and resist the siege of Redcliffe!
Next Week: We clear the Circle Tower and finish Redcliffe Castle!

Thanks to Edward Alenko for letting us use his excellent cover of Leliana's Song.

Vanessa goes Steve Valentine crazy and doesn't even have to tell us he's a magician as we start the year off with our first episode of BioWarey / JanuBioWarey. It's chock-a-block with origin stories, including the surprising fact that we all made female characters, Vanessa's family's bloody ending, Jim being pushed into a life of crime, Matthew consorting with Blood Mages whose names he can't remember, John's encounter with Dragon Age 2's Merrill and so much more.

This Week: We reach the Ostegar camp in Dragon Age: Origins!
Next Week: We travel to Lothering and resist the siege of Redcliffe!

This Week: We finish the game! Somehow!
Next Week: We reach the Grey Warden base in Dragon Age: Origins!

After Papa became a stationary stone you get to meet your somewhat growed up kids! And guess what? The boy is a legendary hero! SHOCK! Now all that's left to do is find out more information about your mysterious mom, clean your litterbox at least twice a week, toss your head to the side and say you're angry, find the mysterious truth about Dr Agon, get crushed by an oversized moose, and beat the heck out of Latka. Just another day on your dragon quest!

This Week: Several years pass after a horrifying twist! Then we clear the Dragon Tower.
Next Week: We finish the game! Somehow!
