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 27, 2021

Oh boy! It's time for further adventures of mural exposition, with Joan Allen calling Max Von Sidow a big nerd for caring about second age tryptarchs. On this chunker of Bethesda's Skyrim we need to get our hands on one of those fancy Elder Scrolls. But how?! By talking to a sexy Orc librarian, heading down to a magical mushroom kingdom, solving a spinny puzzle, and so much more!
Also this week:
- Who wins in a fight, the Eternals versus the Inhumans?
- Conjure Flame Astronaut
- It's Your Inn Now
- Dwarf Ruins CD burning
- Mixing Up Forsworn and Falmers

This Week: We complete Elder Knowledge!
Next Week: We either pick a side or negotiate a truce in Season Unending!

Since we're tackling a very non-linear open world RPG with Bethesda's Skyrim, this time we're doing things a little differently: after a main quest runthrough we each describe the adventures of our own very special characters. It's a surprisingly bug-free playthrough as we pull up in our cart to Helgen, where our executions await! Also:


- The Jerky Boys Musical
- The Vore Seasons
- Presto Kazaam, Mind Freak
- Godzilla's Bound Sword
- The Friendzies Spell
- Mads Mikkelson Cheekbones
- Jerpigs
- A Song For Straight Men

This Week: We fight our first dragon outside of Whiterun!
Next Week: We finish the Blades quest Diplomatic Immunity!

Teleport is a kind of go. Drive is a kind of go. Imagine? Also a kind of go! How many kinds of go can you name? In this climactic conclusion to our Legend of Mana playthrough, our hero has to go through pretty much every dungeon in the game chasing our favorite li'l cactus. Also:
- A Secret Kawazu Game!
- The Most Popular Toy in the World
- A Bizarre Sin Stance Change
- Vanessa's Nuclear Mana Tree Theory
- Pelican Mouth Injuries

This Week: We finish the game!
Next Week: We fight our first dragon outside of Whiterun!
