This week we look at the Nerd High Holy Days, which is to say convention season, why Isaac and Curt love cons (for different reasons) and why Jerome hates them (for good reasons). It’s thirty minutes of the gaming Hejira this time, so sit back, relax and enjoy the trip!
This time on Save Vs Stupid we talk about things we love, including PDFs, Wizards of the Coast’s board game line and Anime done right.
As a side note: yes, there is a bit of a problem with Isaac’s audio in this one. We apologize and the problem is corrected as of the next episode. Growing pains are a bitch.
Dark Shadows Episode 12 – July 12, 1966
My name is Victoria Winters. The night wind batters the house on Widows’ Hill with the force of a thousand demons. There’s no world beyond, it seems; only the waves and the wind. And the terrible loneliness of fear. I’ve decided to stay and continue my search, and yet there’ve been no answers.
This week we let loose a little nerd rage on the things that annoy us. Or a few of them anyway. Which is to say, the way modern comics and anime companies are killing the hobbies their industries serve and the first half of the ReaderCon debacle.
Dark Shadows Episode 11 – July 11, 1966
My name is Victoria Winters. Collinwood sits, as it has for almost 130 years, in brooding isolation on the crest of its hill. The secrets of the past have not yet been opened to me, but I’ve come this far and I must wait. It’s a strange home for me, but even stranger for those who spent their lives within its walls.
Dark Shadows Episode 10 – July 8, 1966
My name is Victoria Winters. I know I shouldn’t be afraid. And yet the great house on Widows’ Hill carries the dusty smell of fear. It moves through the paneled rooms and dark corridors. It seeps down from the walls and touches the heart of everyone who enters.
Dark Shadows Episode 9 – July 7, 1966
My name is Victoria Winters. In the short time I’ve been here, Collinwood has made me a part of its strangeness. A strangeness that seems to reach out and touch everyone and everything that lives within its walls. For the past can be a prison, not only for me but for others – for all those driven by fears of the future.
Dark Shadows Episode 8 – July 6, 1966 My name is Victoria Winters. The devils of a forgotten time have found their home on the crest of Widows’ Hill and the great house echoes with their pain. It’s a lonely and frightening world, but for me it’s a place of hope. A place where the winds of the past can bring the answers for the future.
Dark Shadows Episode 7 – July 5, 1966
My name is Victoria Winters. The dead past drifts through the corridors of Collinwood and settles like dust in its corners. Spurred by hope and surrounded by fear, my search continues, as life itself continues. Not only for me, but for everyone else in this strange corner of the world, people who live with their own fears, their own hopes.
