Hi gang - I discovered the Critical Hit podcast while digging around searching for Warhammer 40K lore podcasts.  I LOVE CH!  I'm on episode 11 right now and am thoroughly enjoying the game and the different angles at play, from Stephen's WoW perspective to Matthew's "I'm-old-and-need-to-learn-this-newfangled-4E-stuff-where's-my-THAC0" adjustment.  I used to play in some hardcore campaigns (my favorite was our drow campaign, loosely based on the Menzoberranzan series) when I was in high school (back in early 90's) and used to be an AD&D 2E snob.  However, listening to your adventures and Rodrigo's fun GM'ing is causing me to re-examine my bias.  As such, I've been reading through the various 4E guides and am warming to the "new" way of D&D'ing.   Thanks so much for the excellent podcast.  I almost had to pull over my truck while I was driving when Stephen did the "pods that cast" bit for the Exilarchy of Cogs.  Too funny!

TL;DR - Noob loves Critical Hit and will be avidly listening and trying to catch up.  Only 160 episodes to go!  Wink

Awesome! Always a joy to meet a new fan of the show!

If you have time, check out the Play by Post forum! If you're feeling up to it, you can LFG for an AD&D game. Navarre's "Shadow War" game is an epic 3.5 campaign that just recently ended, and I am running a 4E game, "Age of the Guardians". Check 'em out for the amazing role-playing adventures and shenanigans!

Again, welcome to the forum! Hope to hear more from you!

CH is swell, and I too miss THAC0.  The episodes and story get better.
Just don't ask about the missing pictures, they get kind of touchy about that.
I think 4e is more accessible than 3 (Hated it).  I do miss some things from AD&D though.

Thanks y'all!  I'll definitely check out the PbP forum.  I played a short-lived PbP Dark Heresy campaign before the GM lost interest and it was just enough to whet my whistle and get me back in the RPG mindset.  I was bummed that it so abruptly ended (my mechanicus adept had another critical miss in him, I'm sure) so maybe I'll be able to find a new game here.
