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

Jul 26, 2021

We found it! We found the Odyssey, and truly, the real lost odyssey was the friendships we made along the way. On this big ol' chonker episode of an episode we chop through most of the end game content, from Cooke getting proposed to by the Kelolon King to Prince Sparklepony learning the true value of bravery. But that's not all!
- Vanessa tries to trick Jim into dressing like a magician
- Yellow is wind? Or should it be brown? Or should it be Bronwyn?
- Gongora's Celebrity Roast
- Johnny's secret Christian musical theatre past
- Towers of Annoy
- Mister Potato Head Made Fun of Me
- You may hear hints about what the next next game is

This Week: We finish the game!
Next Week: We complete the event Path of the Blacksmith in Legend of Mana!
