For this week's episode we're joined by the very talented folks behind 99 Potions, Fantbyte's dedicated RPG podcast that was unfairly cut short by the site's recent layoffs. In solidarity with our fellow creators, we invited Nere, Michael Higham, Andrea Shearon, John Warren, and Natalie Flores on the show to pour one out for a great website, talk about what they've been playing, and delve into some of their problematic favorite characters.

Also in this episode:

  • One more Xenoblade Minute with Michael
  • Eric has thoughts on DioField Chronicle
  • And Autumn of Avatar wraps up Book 1!

This week on the Axe of the Blood God RPG podcast, Kat is out and Nadia learns one more time that it's really just that easy to take an inherently chaotic podcast and make it twice as dizzying. Friend of the show (and Nadia's former employer in the long ago and far away) Anthony John Agnello stops by for a visit and talks all about the huge RPG news deluge that occurred with last week's Nintendo Direct. A new Final Fantasy Theatrhythm game! A new Fire Emblem game! A name for the Breath of the Wild sequel! Farming! Farming! Farming!

Also in this episode:

  • How nice is Zack Fair's hair? (So nice.)
  • Harvestella is weird but good!
  • Holy crap! Suikoden remasters!
  • Things are heating up in Autumn of Avatar. 
  • RIP Fanbyte. :(

This week, Axe of the Blood God tackles the 2022 fall RPG preview—which feels like a nutty thing to say, since summer only started yesterday. Right? Right…?

Oh.

Thankfully, RPGs help take away the sting of passing time for a little while. And it so happens the last quarter of 2022 is loaded with some bangers. Persona 5 for Nintendo Switch! Tactics Ogre Reborn! Valkyrie Elysium! Not to mention a couple of small indie games called Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. What a way to end the year that gave us Elden Ring and Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

Also in this episode:

  • Mickey is a sad divorced dad in his new Animal Crossing-style game ("ah-ha!")
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 3 chapter 5 ruined Nadia's life
  • Kat's going to Japan and Nadia and Eric are not :(
  • Nadia ruined the Autumn of Avatar forever

Handy-dandy timestamps:

0:00 - Intro

5:08 - What we're playing

40:04 - Random encounters

44:56 -  Main topic: The fall RPG preview

The fall season is upon us, and more fantasy shows than you can shake a wizard's staff at are popping up! Since RPGs and fantasy have a fair bit to do with one another, we brought on IGN's Alex Stedman to chat about House of the Dragon, The Rings of Power, how RPGs and fantasy tales intersect, and kick off our Autumn of the Avatar!

All that, plus:

  • Eric dives into the film history of Immortality
  • The crew debates space vs. dragons
  • We're oo-surping things now
