Episode 137 – That’s a Bingo!

About Tim Lanning

Tim founded GeeklyInc with Michael DiMauro way back in 2013 when they realized they had two podcasts and needed a place to stick them. Since then, Geekly has grown and taken off in ways Tim could have never imagined.

When preparing to leave a town or settlement for an extended period of time it is important to be mentally and physically prepared. Sure, grabbing ropes and food and such is good, but what about your mental state? When was the last time you had a good time at a club? These are the questions that are not asked enough by adventurers and it often leads to their deaths. Be safe.

The adventure continues with Titus Harper (Tim Lanning), Thom the Dragonborn (Mike Bachmann), Aludra (Jennifer Cheek), Jaela (Nika Howard) and your Dungeon Master (Michael DiMauro). Don’t forget to follow our editor Steph Kingston (@stephokingston)!

  1. Okay, that was a pretty damn hilarious episode, some honey and silver weed, that was hilarious. Also, did they really make memories, or did they create some memories and lose them immediately from the honey and silver weed.

  2. This was a great episode! I was guffawing several times throughout! Definitely my new favorite! Let’s face it sometimes when the world is overrun by demons ha just gotta let loose and have some fun! It’s basically like the people at the flare palaces in that book series about mazes!

  3. Been with this a long time. Going to stare at my BeyondPod app for a while tonight and debate. I don’t mind that sometimes things go off the rail and get silly for a while, but this time it was obviously being done to deliberately see how much they could annoy people as a goof by not moving the story forward. I only say “deliberately” because of Michael’s “wheat from the chaff” comment at the end.

    • Jazz, what was in my head at that point was more of an “oh crap, we did one of these episodes again” and not a challenge or an “eff you” to the listeners. I don’t think I expressed that very well. I think my point was more that I thought we would lose people after not making any progress for a second show.

      The challenge in an unscripted show is that sometimes things will stall out. And when you are making one of these shows every week, there is no way to you aren’t going to run into some major bumps. Bachmann just got back from his honeymoon, I’m still adjusting from having my life turned upside down, Nika is on a vacation as I type this. So really, at this moment we are all over the place as a group. I think things are about to settle and become much more comfortable, which should make getting into a good groove a lot easier. So I hope you stick around and keep listening because I think we are currently at the very top of the rollercoaster, and things are about to get crazy.

      Also, doing a “The Hangover” episode was pretty darn fun. Definitely a love it or hate it episode, but I’m hoping there are more people out there loving it.

  4. The last episode was pretty frustrating to listen to because it was mostly the players arguing, I thought this was actually pretty fun since it was the characters dicking around. My next campaign DMing is most definitely going to have a fully fleshed out Hangover-type side quest involved. Kudos.

  5. I think I’m in a similar spot as Jazz. I fell in love with this podcast for the story. However, it seems like in the chaos that’s come after the switch over to 5e, things have sort of fallen apart. Weeks pass with no appreciable move forward in the plot, hours are spent deciding what to do, arguments get rehashed again and again (and holy crap Tim, look up the damn ritual rules for 5e already, its not that complicated). It sort of reminds me of the chaos that was reigning in the story before Junpei headed back to the Astral Plane. I had thought maybe Footpad Callor would have been the trigger to make the group realize that their action (or inaction) in the world has consequences, but it looks like that wasn’t the case.

    Honestly, I’m not going anywhere anytime soon since I’ve listened to every episode at this point, but where I used to be giddy with anticipation to hear what was going to happen to the party next, now I find that I have to work harder to convince myself to sit down with the newest episodes. I hate that feeling.

    Here’s hoping you get it back on track.

  6. I love when you guys role play like this, that’s the thrill of Dungeons and Dragons. Getting into crazy situations where there is debate, as long as it is good natured, is fun to listen to. And I honestly think that is what everyone on the podcast is doing. Keep doing what your doing, OK BYE!

  7. Last episode frustrated me so much. There is no reason why Jaela would debate wether to save the last settlement of the world or not. She is supposed to be religious and faithful to Arathus (no idea how to spell it) but lately it seems like she is rebelling against that in a childish manner.

    Moreover Thrifty hinted about the conseqences pretty clearly, the party being killed and almost everyone in the world dying (=end of campaign), why would one have to think twice about that?

    Otherwise i really love this podcast and it has been great up to this point! I do not have anything against Nika she is a great player and addition to the cast.

  8. Ive been listening for about a month and a half bow, started with episode 1 and just kept at it. This is a really fun show to listen to (listening on Spotify). Its clear there are slower episodes here abd there, and i really dont mind, but i hope things pick up in the next few episodes. Overall its a great listen. Keep dicey guys!
