Randy Plays Games Ep 21: Ravenloft Pt 1

First, I have to sheepishly prostrate myself in front of all of you and explain, or rather, beg for forgiveness: somehow, and I have no idea how, I have lost the third episode of RPG: End of the World. I’m tearing my hair out to figure out what happened. I was SO careful. In desperation, I bought one of those deep scanner programs to see if I could recover it from deletion or if I put it accidentally in a random folder somewhere. No luck. I’m hard-pressed to understand how the thing got gone, but got gone it did and no one is more sad about it than me. Needless to say, Jeff saved us all, Chris (not really that heroically) sacrificed his life for the others, and life in the post-apocalyptic world went on, such as it is.

But now, what with it being October and all, we go WAY back to a classic. I had been wanting to play the Dungeons & Dragons Ravenloft adventures for, like, ever. Somehow, despite (I think) even owning the damn things at one point, I never got the chance to either DM or play them. But now, thanks to our guest DM Sam, who had run this gothic vampire quest many times before, I got the chance.

Beau, Sarah, Joe, Chris and Randy (yes, Randy actually gets to PLAY games in this one) enter the haunted castle and fight versus the intimidatingly endless hordes of the undead in our Halloween-month special run of Randy Plays Games.

Do you want to play Ravenloft for yourself? Here’s what you’re gonna need. If you live in the Austin area, you can pick it up at Rogue’s Gallery Comics and Games in Round Rock Texas (and you might even get to meet Randy while you’re there). If you don’t live near there, please buy it through our handy-dandy link below…

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
