Unknown Armies Episode 7


This is a "building" episode. I've realized that my PCs simply aren't proactive and need to be told "This way towards the adventure", so I have accommodated them by having their reward from last week being "Here's the adventure, go do it, you'll learn stuff."

I also added a new player to the group:  my podcast co-host Weer'd Beard. He's been enjoying listening to these episodes (in fact, I think he might be the ONLY person who listens to them) and wondering why the players didn't ask X or do Y, so I just asked him straight up if he wanted to join the game. As you can see, he said yes.

So now the players are investigating strange going-on at the campus of University of Texas, Austin. Again, I worry that I'm not properly capturing the feel of the Texas Gothic aesthetic and/or the mood of Unknown Armies. I know how those things ought to be in my head, but I'm not sure how to express them properly.

Advice is welcome from my listeners -- but does anyone else listen to this? Or am I just shouting into the void?

Assorted Calibers Podcast Ep 053: Rights of the Round Table


The crew decided to do the show in a slightly different format. Think of this as a cross between the regular show,  the "on location" shows we do from the road, and an ACP Mag Dump with the potty talk scraped off.

In This Episode:
  • David and Oddball talk about the changes to the Tennessee Carry permits and the political process that got them there;
  • Erin showcases the Pink Pistols Amicus Curae writ on behalf of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association in their case against New York City's firearm transport ban;
  • Oddball explains some new Developments in the New York City case against the "Gravity Knife" ban;
  • Erin discusses the new changes to Florida's Lobbying laws;
  • Steve talks about Rick Ector's Women Shoot in Detroit;
  • and we all spend a little time talking about the NRA and its turmoil.

Erin on GunGals Live

Armintha, aka That Guy's Wife, the lady whose interview of me I posted on Wednesday,  invited me to be a guest on her live hangout with her co-hostesses Gunpowder Beauty and Gun Snob's Wife.

This has some stuff you haven't heard before, such as how I struggled with suicidal thoughts as a teenager, as it's 1 hour 13 minutes of us just chatting rather than a structured interview.

I had a great time with these gals and I know they felt the same, as they asked if I'd be willing to come back. My answer "Yes! I'll come back any day you like!"

That Guy's Wife Media

I'm in a video! You've probably heard all of this stuff before (I get asked the same questions so I end up repeating myself), but it was taken right after the Concealed Carry Fashion Show by my friend Armintha Caldwell Dover. Please  give her channel (That Guy's Wife Media) some love!

Unknown Armies Episode 6


I know that Unknown Armies is supposed to be about "furious action and transcendental horror", but I really enjoy throwing in loads of Grand High Mystical Weird Shit at the PCs and seeing if they make any sense of it.

Unfortunately, it feels like in this case the PCs didn't have any interest in making sense of things. UA works best if the PCs are proactive, but I think I'll need to break out the Plot Whip (Hyaa! Git along, li'l PCs!) and drive them into "Do stuff or die" territory.

The really interesting thing about this session is that most of the background material is real. The Beto 2020 campaign really is ripping off the Whataburger asthetic, and there really is a profile portrait of him made in a farmer's field outside Austin. I just gave it some magickal significance.



I'm really trying for a "Texas Gothic" aesthetic. Not sure if I'm succeeding.

ACP Mag Dump #12: NRAAM AAR


In This Episode:
  • After consulting with Weer'd on this, we've decided to open this up to all our listeners so that all of you can hear our analysis of the goings-on at NRAAM. Also, if you're not an Ultimate Access subscriber you might not know what a Mag Dump is like. Here's a free taste so you can decide if you want to up your pledge!
  • But be warned, Mag Dumps are NOT safe for work! We are unscripted and uncensored, so make sure you're listening in a location where f-bombs won't cause distress!
  • Last Week we recorded Episode 50 on the first day of the NRA Annual Meeting, and as you might have heard, this year's meeting was very interesting.  Join Weer'd, Oddball, and Erin as they discuss what they saw, what they think is going on, and of course whatever else comes to mind in this After-Action Report Mag Dump.

Listen to the episode here.

    Concealed Carry Fashion Show

    I'm a model
    You know what I mean
    And I do my little turn on the catwalk at 19:35





    For those who'd like to get a better look at me, here are some pictures courtesy of  the talented Craig Fritz:

    I've just finished crossing the stage and am about to do my first pose for the crowd.

    Amanda told the crowd to "give it up" for me, so I did a little dance.

    This is my favorite photo. 

    At center stage, about to make my big reveal.

    The big reveal!



    The bag I modeled was the GTM (Gun Toten Mamas) 108 Sling Backpack.
    It was VERY nifty and I wish I could have kept it!

    All of us models together on the stage.

    A different angle.
