Episode 184 – Orc, Orc and Orc

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.

 

While your brave adventurers are a little on edge, you must admit that the death of a small boy is cause for alarm! Sure, it is possible that we are overreacting. And, well, maybe it is more than a little self-centered to think that every death that happens when we are around is due to us. But, in our defense, bad things just seem to happen all around us and it is our mandate to fix them! We are pretty good at fixing all the problems that follow us, so no worries.

The adventure continues with Titus Harper (Tim Lanning), Jett Razor (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. Sooooo, you are directly competing on Twitch with another little DnD show on Thursday called Critical Role. I know I’d love to watch live on maybe like… another night. #JustSayin 🙂

    • We’ve been doing Thursday since before Critical Role existed. There is too much good stuff out there to be constantly switching days based on other shows. It just doesn’t make any sense.

  2. I love you, Tim. I really do. But goddammit, listening to you read reviews makes me want to rip my ears off the side of my head, shove them through a plate glass window, then pour salted rubbing alcohol into the bloody ear holes.

    • I legit got into a pretty heated debate with a friend about podcasts that do things such as read 5-star reviews. He was extremely against it feeling it was cheating the review system. I defended it since without them reading reviews, there would probably be a ton of people who would never have listened to this podcast.

      • I have no problem with them reading reviews. For the most part, I have no problem with Tim reading the reviews. It’s just that when he does them in that rapid, breathless, whatever else he’s doing mode, my brain has a visceral reaction, my throat closes up and my head starts to ache. A few weeks ago, even Jennifer told him to dial it down a notch.

    • I’m sure we would rather you didn’t listen if it’s a choice between that and an amped-up Reservoir Dogs-style suicide. But, he was doing a comedic bit when he read them fast. He almost never does that. He and the other hosts read the reviews in a wide array of styles. If you can’t appreciate that this is going on, I’m not sure what to tell you.

  3. I feel like there has been a lot of salty comments lately, so I wanted to remind you guys that I think you do a wonderful job, your stories are excititing, your roleplaying is excellent and you are overall funny guys.

    I think you have the right to do everything you can to support yourself, reading reviews, getting sponsorships and doing patreon and kickstarter and the like. You should be able to make a living from this.

    This is a free podcast, I feel people are complaining to much.

    • Just because something’s free doesn’t mean people are only allowed to express glowing reviews of every aspect of a product. Otherwise, why bother allowing comments at all? As long as the product doesn’t suffer, I agree that DnD should do everything they can to monetize their podcast. It’s worth it, and they deserve it. I don’t consider reading reviews to be part of the product, but I do enjoy hearing them, and if they are being read in a way that lowers my quality of life, I don’t see what’s so wrong with saying so.

      • Of course you have the right to state your opinion, but I don’t think the podcast could in any way “lower the quality of your life” or make your “heart ache”.
        Again, of course you may say that you don’t like something, and who should prevent you from doing so?
        Still, saying it makes you want to rip your ears off and whatnot is over the top, not to mention unfriendly.
        I think we owe them at least some politeness. Voice your opinion all you like but consider a nicer tone.

  4. …Well my review was read in this past episode and it made me so happy! I love hearing the reviews from fellow fans of the podcast ♡! Never stop polishing this brand. Also, I literally cry happiness when you folks use my art.

  5. Hi y’all! Just wanted to leave a note because I’m hella late to the party but I’m really loving this podcast. I’m starting from the very beginning and I can’t wait to see what adventures you get up to in the next few years (!). The commentary makes me laugh and it’s possible your shenanigans are improving my DMing too. Thanks and keep it up!

  6. I’m dying over the fact that one of the products advertised on the sidebar is a romance novel called Jewel of the East. What an amazing touch. I wonder if Jennifer or her mom has read it… Loved that this was a long episode! Keep it up!

  7. Reviews are at the end of the podcast…why not just skip the reviews if you don’t like listening to them? Tim you are awesome, haters are gonna hate.

  8. So there was Harper, King of Pelor’s Hope, about to execute a murderer (and an orc to boot) and two of his men just up and leave over it. And Harper lets them go. Weak. Pelor’s Hope needs a strong king again, not one who leaves for months at a time and lets his fucking elf-wife rule the most powerful human kingdom in the world. Old Man Weck for King. Or Ros. Or anyone but Harper, really. Maybe even one of Harper’s half-breed children. Make Pelor’s Hope great again.

    • Would a weak king, and I tell you what, I’ve talked to people, many people, who think I am strong. The strongest. A king so strong you head would spin. You saw, everyone saw it and agrees, you can’t deny it, that I tied a rope around my two soldiers. I did it. I don’t deny it. Isis.
