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

Apr 29, 2019

Ness doesn't know who you are. Ness doesn't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom I can tell you Ness doesn't have money, but what Ness does have are a very particular set of skills. Skills Ness has acquired over a very long career. Skills that make Ness a nightmare for people like you. If you let Apple Kid go now that'll be the end of it. Ness will not look for you, Ness will not pursue you, but if you don't, Ness will look for you, Ness will find you and Ness will kill you.

We're going to a pyramid! That's right! We're stealing cultural relics, entering a pastiche of China via Japan, failing to use proper signalling to attain enlightenment, trying to figure out the lyrics to Venus, wake up on a beach after getting a little too blazed on some edibles, and regret Jim's hangover.

This Week: We get a submarine!
Next Week: We head to Magicant!

Vanessa gets Star Wars crazy on this sprawling episode of Square Roots! We settle on Tony's sexuality while also learning how to spell "Tony", get drugged on a beach, fight the third strongest mole, get hassled by cops, get lost in Moonside for hours, meet a man with a spectacular unibrow, bail the discount Blues Brothers out of another jam, get bored at a concert, enjoy a terrible inventory-stretching dungeon, and so much more!


This Week: We eat some bad cake in Summers!
Next Week: We get a submarine!
