Radio Active #89: Run Geek Run

Radio Active PodcastOn this episode of Nuketown Radio Active I revisit the button-smashing happiness of Diablo III, soak in the nostalgia of Sonic Mania, and catch up listeners on a few of my Dungeons & Dragons campaigns.

After that I delve into a topic I never thought I’d talk about: how I became a runner (and the zombies that helped me do it)/

Nuketown News

  • I participated in the RPG Brigade’s #RPGaDay2017 in August. Read all my responses in one convenient post. Topics included:
    • Day 1: What published RPG do you wish you were playing right now?
    • Day 2: What is an RPG you would like to see published?
    • Day 6: You can game every day for a week. Describe what you do.
    • Day 8: What is an RPG to play for sessions of 2 hours or less?
  • I’ve also been participating in RPG Blog Carnival. Recent topics include “Occult Mysteries”, “Megadungeons”, and “Things in the Dark”
  • This is the third new episode of Radio Active … so I’m releasing all three when the redesign site launches.

What I’m Playing Now

  • Diablo III: Button-smashing happiness, now on the Playstation 4.
  • Sonic Mania: A return to form for the classic side-scrolling platformer. I got it on Xbox One; it’s also available for PS4. It’s essentially Sonic 1, Sonic 2, and Sonic 3 with expanded levels and new features that are true to the speedster hedgehog.
  • Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition: Broken Land: A soon-to-be concluded lunchtime game. It’ll be replaced by the Princes of the Apocalypse adventure path.

Run, Geek, Run

  • I’m a runner. Never thought I’d say that.
  • I started running regularly in February 2015, mostly because I needed a form of exercise that wasn’t dependent on the gym. When I started, I couldn’t run a 1/3 mile without getting winded. Now I regularly run 3 miles.
  • I started with Zombies, Run, 5K training, which is a coach-to-5k training app … with zombies. The 5K version got me running, the regular version keeps me running. It includes seasons as well as special modes (e.g. 5K training) and virtual races.
  • Running isn’t for everyone … but it turns out it is for me.
