K Band Radio

A tabletop rpg podcast playing Uncharted Worlds

Frank4-2-Love

December 5th, 2018

It's episode 14 of K Band Radio, and things are getting steamy. Frank421 struggles with the question of love when finds himself stranded on the ¡Smash N Grab! alone with Harvey Splice. Brenden and Brian play Star-Crossed by Alex Roberts to build romantic tension between man and AI. Find out how the characters' forbidden passion turns out when the Jenga tower falls.

NOTE: We struggle with gender pronouns for Harvey Splice in this episode because neither of us has a non-gendered AI in our lives to normalize against. We found that referring to a sentient NPC as "it" seemed dismissive and unconsciously returned to the he/him/his pronouns we associate with a masculine name like Harvey. Once Harvey Splice identifies which pronouns to use, we will not embarrass ourselves any further.

We use a song available on ccmixter in this episode to add a little love to our tower pulls. Here is the information for the tune.

Time to go Beddy Bye

August 1st, 2018

The ¡Smash N Grab! team raid the warehouse where the stolen dragon, Gimpy, is being held. They find a little more than expected and deal with some interesting wild life. Frank accomplishes something he's always wanted to do. Fang coins a new phrase for bad-assery. Episode five of K Band Radio includes our first land based combat. Exciting!

In episode four, I forgot to post thanks to The Dr. Orphyus Project for letting us use his song "Hazel Anne" off of the album "Roustabout." I've updated that episode's post, but I also wanted to say it on a fresh post so regular listeners got the link that I promised them at the end of that episode.

We also never publicly thanked our player Joel. The man behind the great Chengbert Flackway gave us our original and regular theme song. Thanks Joel!

Finally, thanks to all of our listeners for sticking with the K Band Radio podcast.
