  • Hero Points: The Live Role-Playing Session

    23/06/2020 Duração: 02h01min

    You asked for it! One of the Fire and Water Podcast Network's Patreon stretch goals was for us to finally pull the trigger on a live (well, live-to-tape) DC Heroes role-playing session with Network hosts and guests taking the roles of superheroes they are associated with. A long time in the making (and even longer in the asking), GameMaster Siskoid sits across from the virtual gaming table from players Shagg, Chris Franklin, Bass and David Gallaher and runs the Bwa-ha-ha JLI introductory adventure from the 2nd edition boxed set, "Exposed"! But who's playing who? For that, you have to listen! Check out the image gallery for the character sheets and more! Have a question or comment? Looking for more great content?

  • The Hero Points Podcast: Dream Machine

    04/10/2019 Duração: 01h03min

    GameMasters Siskoid and David Gallaher discuss the 1986 DC Heroes adventure module Dream Machine, by Mark Acres, starring the one and only Joker.
