Posted in Action, Fantasy, Ralph Sevush, Short Story on June 24, 2011 by dunesteef

Seven years ago, loser drug-addict Joey and his bullying, hulking friend Emmett made a deal with the Beelz. The details are hazy, maybe something about a job, maybe something about a book, but now the word on the streets is that Beelz is back, and ready to collect. outtakes

To say more might be too say too much.

Also, Rish tries to apologize for how late this episode is, Big tries to deflect blame, and the subject of casting against type is discussed.

outtakes
Lysel was attacked and bitten by a giant venomous spider, now Leyton must collect dozens of venom sacs to make the antidote for the poison, or his sister will perish. Can he get them in time…

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about spiders, the sounds they might make, and creative outlets. Big talks about “The Thundercats” and Rish complains about special effects…again. Just count yourself lucky they don’t sing the theme to “Mister Belvedere.”

Episode 60: Playable Character by Eric J. Juneau

Posted in Action, Adventure, Eric J. Juneau, Fantasy, Short Story on January 17, 2010 by dunesteef

If Rish survives this week, we present to you “Playable Character” by Eric Juneau.
bloopers
It’s not easy being a character in a computer role-playing game. You can rarely go where you want to, hang around your friends, wear the armor you’ve been eyeing. Worse is when your player wants you to run all over the kingdom and slay monsters, or worst of all, when high-level campers stand in the way of you and your player’s goal.

Also, Big and Rish talk a bit about World of Warcraft, but mostly they revisit everyone’s favorite topic: irrational fears. This time, they take a look at some listeners’ fears and have fun mockin–er, commiserating with them.

Special thanks to Bryan Lincoln for producing and editing today’s story, and to Liz Lincoln, John Lincoln, Bryan Lincoln, Buchis and Ghomus from the AIE guild on Earthen Ring, and Aeriah and Siek from the Imperfection guild on Lightninghoof for lending their voices to today’s episode.

Posted in Action, Cyberpunk, Science Fiction, Short Story, Tom Crosshill on January 3, 2010 by dunesteef

Paul Davery has a problem. His mind was just hijacked, and while he was out, his body murdered his best friend. Now, he’s in a desperate search to discover who is responsible before the authorities find out and throw him in jail.bloopers

Also, Rish talks about his aversion to Cyberpunk, and Big calls himself a “craphole.” Then they argue about James Cameron’s Avatar, which they went to together, and Rish rambles semi-offensively for a while. They may mention their worst moviegoing experiences in there somewhere.

Posted in Action, Adventure, Derek J. Goodman, Drama, Novelette, Western on December 17, 2009 by dunesteef

The lads are excited to present the first novelette on the Dunesteef.
