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.

Square Roots - Episode 383
Okay, we didn't hit our goal for this chunker again - we'll save dealing with the Brotherhood until next time. But this time on Square Roots we explore different methods of dealing with the Boomers and the Great Khans and continually tease how great Vault 34 is without actually getting there.
Also:
- Vanessa Describes the Best Scene from Retribution
- Matthew's Origin Story
- You're Legally Allowed to Kiss Them Whenever You Want
- 2 Jacks at the Same Time
- The Scrap Bringer
- Updating Vanessa's New Vegas Sex Count
- A Selection of the B-29's Greatest Hits

This Week: We deal with the Boomers and The Great Kahns. WARNING: The end of these quests can trigger the point of no return for your endgame faction. If you’re not sure which way you want to go yet do not report to House, Yes Man, Caesar, or NCR.
Next Week:  We finish up with the Brotherhood of Steel finally as well as reaching the Casino in Dead Money.
