The final episode of the Series 3 Penny Arcade/PvP podcast went live last Friday. Yes, I killed Wil Wheaton's character with a very mean acid pit trap, but Wil broke the cardinal rule of Dungeons & Dragons: Never split the party. Fortunately, Wil was kind enough to focus his ire on Scott Kurtz instead of me. If you haven't heard his spectacular rant, you NEED to listen to the podcast. Like, now. Just don't do it while driving.
If you're wondering why the Series 3 podcasts are shorter than the previous series (30 minutes, down from 45 minutes), it's because Aeofel died unexpectedly and we wanted to end with a bit of a dramatic cliffhanger.

The third episode of the Series 3 Penny Arcade/PvP podcast went live today. In case you're wondering, none of the podcasts are rehearsed or scripted ahead of time. It's just four funny guys and one not-so-funny guy playing an honest-to-goodness game of D&D.
One of the weirdest things about doing the Penny Arcade/PvP podcasts is that by the time the episodes are released, I've forgotten all of the details of what happened. People will pass me in the halls and quote lines from the latest episode, and I'm like, "Dude, what the hell are you talking about?" The good thing about having a crap memory is that I can listen to the podcasts and be surprised, just like everyone else.
