In this episode, we talk about how to best use lying and secrecy in your games.
The secrets of this episode:
- Wayne’s d100 joke was originally Lyal’s. It was also originally funny.
- Wayne has never seen Goodfellas, and Lyal has never seen Family Guy. This actually won’t seem like much of a secret after you listen to the episode.
- Chris initially had a joke where he said the episode was about fantasy. Get it? It was a lie. It’s no secret why this “joke” never made it in.
In part 2 of our review of HBO’s Game of Thrones, we continue with our picks for best and worst scenes. We also give our general impressions and predictions, and we share our tips on how to add a little Westeros to your fantasy game.
Despite Richard Madden having a bit of a fan club in Japan, we still don’t mention Robb Stark. (Don’t get your hopes up, Mr. Madden; they’re all dudes.)
Warning: Chris was unavailable for the recording of this episode, so it’s a touch more engaging and entertaining than usual.

It’s only our second Creature Feature and we’re already pushing the premise to include occupations. We discuss criminal organizations and how to include them in your games.
Oddly, we don’t mention Scarface at all. While this means we don’t mine this rich source of ideas, you’re spared listening to our versions of “Say hello to my little friend.” Chris does do The Godfather 3 quote. Yeah, that one.
To law enforcement: This episode is not an endorsement of crime or an attempt to glamourize it.
To criminal organizations: We’re obviously not talking about you. Are we cool?
