Take a moment and imagine the following scenario . . . You find yourself in a game of Settlers of Catan. The game has been going for several rounds now, and many of the players are within striking distance of getting their final victory point. You are confident that the … Continue reading
Peter and Jenny have two special guests this week: Jacob Toman and Michael Mendis from Gospel & Gaming! Gospel & Gaming is, in their own words, “a ministry dedicated to sharing the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ with gamers all over the world.” Jacob and Michael did a great job representing them, explaining their mission in online gaming communities and tabletop gaming communities alike.
We also addressed a question from Patreon backer Jim Nanban, who asked us about the coolest piece of RPG paraphernalia we each own. (As promised, there’s a picture of Peter’s dice bag right here in the show notes.) We also briefly plug our Discord channel, which is continuing to grow as a community. Then everyone settles in to talk about evangelism and how Gospel & Gaming approaches it—even to the point wher […]
There are certain names that we remember when we’re looking at Paul and his missionary journeys. There are two of them in particular that can be easily overlooked but should be given a particular note. Priscilla and Aquila are among Paul’s dearest friends. They are from the same trade, they … Continue reading
Welcome to Cyclopaedia 21: Horror. Cyclopaedia is a monthly article on the InnRoads Ministries website as part of the Getting Started series. When I was younger, I enjoyed watching Scooby Do and being “scared” by the monsters and ghosts early in the episode to later be surprised it was just some guy in a suit. As I … Continue reading
We’re back with an episode topic selected by our Patreon supporters: That old adage, “the ends justify the means”—in other words, consequentialism! First, a few announcements: Grant now regularly streams the editing process for these episodes over on Mixer, so come hang out if you want to chat with him while he does that. Also, to help wrap up our “summer of mental health” focus, Jenny and Grant have pulled together a few mental health resources; we’ve got those listed below.
Our Patreon backer question this week is from Doug Hagler, who asks us about using a board game to introduce or set the scene for a tabletop roleplaying game. We struggle a bit with this one, admittedly, but we do manage to come up with a couple of ideas!
Then we settle into the main topic: Consequenti […]
We’re still working through this series on characters found all over the Bible that often are overlooked or underappreciated. Today’s feature is Lydia – the seller of purple. A woman who hosts Luke, Paul, and the missionaries with them – the first believer in all of Phillipi. There’s not much … Continue reading
Booter, con organizer, and friend Adam Gottfried joins us to talk about planning Fear the Con and other conventions! First, Adam has an announcement (the first piece of news ever broken on Saving the Game!)—Fear the Con 11 will be June 22-23, 2018. Also, there will be a Kickstarter for the con at some point, although those dates aren’t exactly set in stone yet. (For more Fear the Con, see Episode 61 with Derek Knutsen and a host of others.)
Having made that announcement, we tackle Patreon backer Jim’s question about obscure media we’d want to turn into a RPG. We also discuss an impending visit from the Bishop of Jerusalem, which naturally leads int […]
The very first time I did a series about lesser-known, favorite characters in the Bible started with me telling a room full of fifth-grade boys, “Has anyone ever told you about Ehud the left handed assassin?” It was a ploy, mind you, to get these guys who showed absolutely no … Continue reading
