How many times have you sat at the table staring at the Game Master of your favorite RPG and thought to yourself "How cool would this be if we were all out in the woods, hunting these monsters together with weapons and armor on?" Well my friend you are not alone.
Tonight, the gang have invited some of the premier LARP's in the area onto the show to discess the passion, pitfalls and promise of what a monthly LARP event holds. So, grab a bevie and perhaps a snack, sit back, relax and think get ready to learn all there is to know, (in 2 hours) about Live Action Role Playing.
UNDERDOG TALE DIVES INTO THE ADVENTUROUS WORLD OF LIVE ACTION ROLE PLAYING Author Justin Calderone introduces his newest book, LARP: The Battle for Verona Even geeks can be heroes in Justin Calderone’s latest novel LARP: The Battle for Verona, a fantasy adventure tale of true friendship and the disastrous consequences of social pressure. New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry calls Calderone’s novel “a witty, action-packed adventure that will leave you breathless.” And Fantascize.com raves about LARP: The Battle for Verona calling it a “Geek Gem…a fair balance of action, adventure, cynicism, and romance. I would recommend this book for adults and teens.” Website: JustinCalderone.com Twitter: @JustinCalderone
Okay, so let's face it. Geekdom is at an all time high. What used to be an incredibly small counter culture of renegade gamers with high IQ's and low public acceptance which rallied in basements and shared their dreams of conquest, power and legendary deeds, have now become a target marketshare for numerous corporations. In less just about thirty years we have gone from lonely to legion!!!
New conventions are appearing every year and most of the already established ones are expanding. Geeks are pouring into every city in their cargo shorts, graphic Tee's, back packs and rule books in hand in record numbers. Cosplayers are showing up in every possible persona from the Flintstones all the way to dead alaskan painter Bob Ross. Everywhere you look, more and more Geeks are crawling from there preverbial holes and joining the world at large.
But at what cost? We are actually becoming such a large group that we are beginning to splinter into sub groups again and those groups are at times finding it hard to accept and share the spot light. Steampunkers, Tabletop War Gammers, Cardies, Boardies, Consolers, Cosplayers, RPG'ers, LARP'ers, MMO'ers, Trekkies, Jedi's, Vamps, Tramps and a 1000 others... when is to much to much and what does it mean to market a game or product to these numerous and varied groups. Tonight on the Wolf's Den we look at the expanding world of Geek and how much further we think it can go before we see it shatter and splinter into seperate cons, gatherings and events.
We're always jazzed to have a fellow geek on the show, but it's great when they've got a cause, too!
Here's a blurb from Kasi Jammeh's web comic at www.hawtflash.net
"The Adventures of Hawt Flash and Solara is a web comic that follows two super women as they discover what happens when the hormonal changes come. Chris Jefferstein, aka Hawt Flash, is the first one to go through perimenopause. Jade, aka Solara, is Chris’ best friend and helps Chris figure out that the changes are giving her superpowers. The story is about friendship, menopause, superheroism and a lot more."
But trust me, Kasi is also a super-geek. She's got the Voltron toys to prove it!
Listen in and find out what makes her tick ...

Well we are back again with Episode 1.5. If you listened to the previous episode, then I'm sorry. This is us trying to do a redo. Phoenix, Dephi, and Anne are back for another spot of randomness...this time we've got notes! So sit back and enjoy...I apologize in advance.
Our special guest for this podcast is Felicia Day (Supernatural's Charlie).
Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigate the mysterious deaths of two LARPers (Live Action Role Playing) who were playing a game entitled Moondoor. The guys are thrilled to discover the Queen of Moondoor is none other than Charlie (guest star Felicia Day). The three learn that a fairy (guest star Tiffany Dupont) has been commandeered to harm people and the only way to stop her is to find her master. Jeannot Szwarc directed the episode written by Robbie Thompson.
