Welcome to the Advanced Age Roleplaying Gamers Podcast!
Hello and welcome to the Advanced Age Roleplaying Gamers Podcast. We are a group of friends who have been playing roleplaying games off and on together and with other friends for nearly 40 years. We love all things geek - roleplaying, video games, cheesy sci-fi and fantasy movies, and all kinds of tech toys.
The pandemic has changed all of our lives but one small silver lining has been that we have been forced to get out of our comfort zone of pen and paper (and 3D printing) and join the world of Virtual Table Tops and online video calls. It was a bit of a learning curve; however, the benefit has been that it is much easier now for us to get together and game. Life, with all of its challenges - work, kids, school, bills and the fact that we no longer live that close to each other made it difficult to play in-person games consistently. Programs like Roll20, Discord, and OBS have enabled us to get together and share one of our favorite pastimes.
About the same time that the pandemic struck we had more time on our hands and we discovered real-play podcasts. It didn't take long for us to come to the conclusion that we could do it too. It has been a steep learning curve but we have really enjoyed learning new skills and technologies to help bring our stories to the rest of the world. So tune in and let us pull back the curtain and share our stories, insights, and love of all things geek. Welcome to Advanced Age Roleplaying Gamers Podcast.
