Gyro takes the GM reins for the show's milestone fiftieth episode in this sci-fi romp through the Mass Effect universe using the indie Rogue Space RPG rules. We begin with the players confined to the cargo hold of an advanced prototype Alliance ship on its way to the Utopia System. Things heat up quickly as they hit dirtside on Eden Prime, where a routine shakedown run turns into much more than they bargained for.



  1. Gyro GMing, that's two drinks right there!

    1. Haha, the list goes on; you laughed at one of your own jokes, we mentioned Skyrim, and of course we started drinking on air. And that's right off the bat!

    2. I think that one about me laughing at my own jokes is unfair. I tell funny jokes! You want me to start telling bad jokes? ;-)

    3. All of my rules are fair. I don't know what you're talking about.

      I should also add that I accept no responsibility for anyone contracting Alcohol poisoning as results of my game

  2. I believe you guys are mistaken regarding your offhand comment about Dick Grayson "staying dead" - if you're referring to the "Death in the Family" story in which the Joker beats the crap out of Robin with a crowbar (and then blows him up), that PARTICULAR Robin was actually Jason Todd (Dick Grayson having already moved on to become Nightwing). Of course, even Jason Todd has since returned from the dead (around the time of the Hush storyline, I think) and now adventures as the anti-hero Red Hood.

    Currently, Dick Grayson has taken up the mantle of the bat and is serving as Batman in Gotham City as part of the Batman Inc. story.

    1. Yup, thanks for setting the record straight. I was indeed thinking of Jason Todd and hadn't realize he had returned to the land of living, thanks!

      So not being caught up on current events, if Grayson is Batman right now where is Bruce?

    2. Bruce is, for lack of a better word, globe-trotting to set up Batman "franchises" around the world. He's establishing other Batmans (Batmen?) in other cities all over the planet, recruiting a variety of old and new allies to assume the title of "Batman" in different areas.

      I personally think it's one of the dumbest Batman stories ever, but whattaya gonna do, eh?

  4. Duck Sauce, I care about Skyrim. So STFU. ;)

    And thanks for the shout out!


  5. Well, what Batman is up to nowadays depends on which Batman comic you read. If you read "Batman" by Scott Snyder, he's just battling bad-guys in a mind-bending psycho-drama. If you read "Batman: The Dark Knight" he's raiding Arkham Asylum and fighting everyone in there.

    I prefer those events and series to the Batman Inc. stuff.
