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

Mar 25, 2019

Humans of Earth! Are you ready for... Mother 2? Or Earthbound? Whatever you want to call it! On this episode: Vanessa is on the gargle for St. Patrick's Day, John brings back a beloved segment, Matthew has a Level Up Classic, and Jim engages in Laissez-Faire parenting. Talking points for this episode include: attractive nuisances, Captain Strong's child fight club, at what age a child can confidently be called a jerk, and a look at this game's obsession with bed wetting.

This Week: We defeat Captain Strong in Earthbound!
Next Week: We hop on the Runaway Five tour bus and head to Threed!

THE SHOCKING DRAGON AGE FINALE! We find out why only a Grey Warden can defeat an archdemon, Vanessa has to lend out Alistair's chunker, John does a Riordan voice that just annoys Matthew, Jim gives up, Matthew takes the path of ultimate good, no one bothers with Loghain, and we debate whether or not having an elder god in the body of a child is such a great thing to do.

This Week: We finish Dragon Age: Origins!
Next Week: We defeat Captain Strong in Earthbound!

On this exciting episode of Square Roots Johnny is dummy thicc, Matthew is chasing Waterfalls, Vanessa's mom may be the Nanny from Muppet Babies, and Jim is the true Captain Marvel fan.

Also: Vanessa is the woman of 1000 Stewarts, forcing yourself into royalty, Battle Alita Toshinden, impromptu Patreon stretch goals, random pitchforkings, and dealing with the future of Ferelden. It's rad!

This Week: We have the Landsmeet!
Next Week: We finish Dragon Age: Origins!

NEXT GAME ANNOUNCED! Matthew, Vanessa, John and SOMEONE ELSE pack up and head to Denerim, harden Alistair, clear out a brothel, fight in alleys, and maybe get the nicest ladies in the party to try and murder you. Talking points include a village where everyone acts like people in a creepy Stephen King community, adopting the "money pweez" roleplaying stance, The Wynne Button, and settling the Brother Giovanni Ribisi / Brother Jen of Tilly debate forever.

This Week: We head out to Denerim and find the Urn of Sacred Ashes!
Next Week: We have the Landsmeet! And declare a new ruler of Ferelden!
