Welcome to Detention, Episode 8!


Hello Academaniacs! Welcome to a new bonus feature on The RPG Academy, Detention!


We were so happy to hear good feedback about this bonus content that we decided to make more!

In this episode, Caleb and Scott are joined by special guest Kendall from the Redemption Podcast.  As usual, these episodes are a little more rough around the edges, with less editing to reflect a more conversational tone. They also include more of the tangents, bad jokes, and adult language that we tend to use when we’re hanging out and having fun.

Detention is sponsored by Battle Bards! Be sure to check out their newest albums and don’t forget to use our exclusive coupon code when making a purchase.

In Extra Curricular, Kendall talks about preparing for Grand Con and shares a teaser about one of the games he’ll be running at AcadeCon 2016. Scott goes on a shopping trip for his sister’s latest wedding and forgets what he’ll be doing in the wedding party. We also wax poetically about adult arcades and complain about the exchange rate of tickets to prizes. Caleb shares his struggle with preparing games, and the gang discusses why prep is difficult and ways to solve the problem. Also, last minute prep is the best minute of prep. In Used Books, Kendall shares a 3 year D&D campaign full of excitement and betrayal that ended with a shocking attack roll. The hidden secret of the monster manual is revealed, as is the truth behind what actually makes a good challenge in a game. And it is decreed that raw dungeon delving combat is the sherbet of RPGs. In Class Review, it’s time to talk about the Ranger, who may or may not be the tiny dancer of D&D. Of course, focus is on the new Revised Ranger, which you can read about more about here. The boys break down the new features and get very excited about what’s there. They also dig into the history of the Ranger through recent editions and talk about the aspects of the class that make it really weird.

    That’s 3 times where ya’ll have reviewed a class that I don’t like. (Paladin, cleric, and ranger). Every time, however, after listening I’m like, “Maybe that class isn’t that bad”. Ya’ll sell classes very well.
    Like I said before though, maybe next time around, a little more crunch wouldn’t hurt.
    As always, awesome episode. Keep em coming.
