The word is character so the nerds talk about their favorite characters, what makes for a fun character to role-play, who’s really the main character, and what’s important in being a person with good character. Keith talks about appearing on the next season of Legacy of Worlds. Andy talks about being Frank, the person everyone knows (and his friend, Anthony’s sister) in a game of Over The Edge. They also talk about the importance of good sportsmanship in leadership. They talk about the holidays and gifts they each got, and Andy talks about how the biggest Christmas stories are actually time travel stories. They discuss their favorite versions of a Christmas Carol. After the spoiler curtain, they discuss the Peripheral a little and season 2 of Loki at great length.
The word is calendar and the nerds talk about calendars, in particular Advent Calendars and Andy’s Y2K Calendar T-shirt. Other holiday related topics include Keith’s lil RPG, Snow Globe, his favorite Christmas tree ornament, and a disappointing pop-up Santa bar in Portland. Keith talks about the next D&D game he’ll be running and gets a couple of suggestions about it from Andy. He also talks about playing Wayfinder on his new PS5. Andy talks about his awesome shoulder-riding cat and updating the rules to old pyramid games. Media topics include Bodies, Loki, The Flash, and Fargo.
