Class Conscious: Monks

Class Conscious: Monks

It's time to talk about Monks! You know, those fellows what pummel things with their fists and suplex trains. It's the latest entry in our Class Conscious series!

Episode Notes

This week on the Axe of the Blood God RPG podcast, Kat and Nadia have both gone out for cigarettes, which means that Eric is in charge. Our boy keeps his head on his shoulders and invites Mike Williams of Sharlayan Dropouts to talk about our next Class Conscious entry: Monks! You know, those fellows what pummel things with their fists and suplex trains. They’re joined by martial artist Danielle Riendeau, who has good advice for all you baby monks who’re just starting your training: The pavement always wins.

Also in this episode:

  • We say goodbye to esteemed RPG architect Rieko Kodama, who sadly passed away earlier this year
  • Marvel Snap is currently the most popular thing in the universe
  • Mike loves him some Mario Rabbids. (Or is that “rabid Mario?”)
  • The gang dives head-first into the Fire Nation on this week’s Autumn of Avatar

In the Post Show

Eric, Mike, and the Stars of Destiny throw down in the chat over a brand-new tier list: The Top Halloween Candies of All Time. It gets hot, folks. Hotter than a tamale. But only Canadian kids know the pain of getting Molasses Kisses by the handful. Who even likes those? They keep coming back. Smells like witchcraft.


Paying Tribute to Akira Toriyama, Unicorn Overlord, and More

Akira Toriyama died on March 1, leaving behind a legacy that includes Dragon Ball, Dragon Quest, and an incredible impact on both games and anime. With Eric out, Kat and Nadia are joined by Victor Hunter and Ash Paulsen to break down he changed RPGs, our memories of watch Dragon Ball, and more.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Review

It’s the spoiler-free Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Spectacular! The panel has had plenty of time with Rebirth, or as I like to call it “Final Fantasy VII-3”. Does it improve upon Remake? Does it stand on it’s own? Do you need to play the lost mid-2000s Japanese feature phone game Before Crisis to fully grasp the importance of the character of Cissnei?
