Dungeons & Doritos

There's a new podcast around, called The Nerdy Show, that features Brian Clevinger, the author of webcomics like 8-Bit Theater, Warbot In Accounting, and the print comic Atomic Robo. They recently released a two-part (so far) series of episodes called "Dungeons & Doritos", which is similar in structure to the Penny Arcade/et al. D&D podcast, but much more absurd and with radio music interludes.

Clevinger plays the part of Jen Ifir, the tiefling (it's 4th edition). I'm not far in at all yet, but, with descriptions like what they provide, it's worth a listen!
(can also be downloaded through iTunes)

Roster:
CHAIR, dwarf warden (pervert)
Jen Ifir, tiefling warlock (presumed infernal)
Vimak, goliath shaman (acts and sounds like the Heavy from TF2)
Jamalla, dragonborn invoker of evil Tiamat

Since the latest PA D&D campaign has ended, I was pining for more of this sort of thing.
Will definitely check it out later. Thanks!

Yeah, I was too. This just came out so I think we got lucky

Also: I'm almost halfway through the first one, and the tiefling and dragonborn have proven exceptionally hilarious.

edit: the goliath is basically a shaman version of the Heavy from TF2, accent and all!

Halfway through part 2 now. Good stuff!
Small warning: foul language. Furthermore, CHAIR the naked 'dwarf' is dirty as hell. Too much so for my taste, but on the bright side he stays as impressively in character as everyone else. Let's just say he interprets the 'marking' system a little differently... as Clevinger seems to die on the inside

Also, I've heard several rules errors, but some might just be house rules. They don't get in the way of the entertainment

I am assuming its supposed to be bad on purpose but man. That DM makes me want to pull my fucking face off. If I had someone reading flavor text to me like that I would just break out the math puzzles cause that is like every bad math teacher I have ever had.
I got through the first episode but...I think I will pass.

Yeah, I can totally empathize with that reaction to the DM. Most of the fun details come from the players, oddly enough, especially Jamalla and (perhaps regretfully) CHAIR.

I may give it a go later. Not trying to ding the guys but if its hard to listen to, its hard to enjoy. I will give the 2nd episode a try when I am writing or working or something and see if it is less annoying then this last one.

2nd episode's a long one, I still haven't finished listening to it! I think I got a half hour left or so. It sounds like they're leaving the final Kobold Hall encounter, against the white dragon, for another session.

If it's any sort of disclaimer, I openly admit to being easily amused.

I'm a bit late on noticing it, but there's a new one of these up now, and another will probably come out next week. I have not yet listened to it, but I expect some good comedy as before.
