Monkeys Took My Jetpack #24: Come Sail Away

Hi, gang!

We’re back with another trip to the Zantabulous Land of Zo! Think of this as somewhat of an interlude after the Sea Wolf skirmishes and troll tussles from the last couple issues. Still, if you know us at all, then you know interlude never equals boring. So have fun.

By the way, due to receiving the gem which introduces this issue moments before it was put together for posting, I was unable to put an official thank-you into the podcast, so allow me, please, to rectify that oversight here. Thunderstep, you unequivocly rock in the most rockish way possible. We love receiving things like this–not only because it’s a heck of an ego-stroke, but even more, because it’s well-produced audio inspired by the stuff we do! How flattering and awesome is that!?!? So now, Thunderstep, you join the likes of Copycat042, Xofour, Trilobite and Kedamono. If only we had a cool figurine of a monkey wearing a jetpack in a heroic (or maybe even better, a frightened-to-death) pose, we would send one to each of you. Your contributions mean more than you can know. And they’re just damned fun, to boot!

Make no mistake, everyone; your comments and forum posts mean so much to us as well, which is why we read them on the podcast … so all o’ y’all, keep this stuff coming! It makes our day, our week, our month…

I could continue to gush, but this is already becoming obnoxiously long for a podcast-blog entry. Stop reading this and download the issue, for cryin’ out loud!

And enjoy.

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #23: Sea Wolves, Stratagem, And Ceremony

We’re back with yet another session of Zo. Will our unlikely band of heroes be able to stop the dreaded Sea Wolves from decimating the Badger Kingdom? Will they ever get any further toward finding Princess Zephyr’s sisters? Will Thomas have a chance to eat more chicken? Will Webster speak? Will Jarrod ever get anything right? Some of these questions may in fact be answered in this issue of Monkeys Took My Jetpack. Others … well, who’s to say some of these questions weren’t rhetorical?

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #22: Dinner, Dancing, and Death

Huzzah!!! Hurrah!!! Yippeeeee!!! Yahoo!!! Google!!! Bing!!!! Waidaminit!!!!…

Why has prompted these enthusiastic exaltations? Why, a new MTMJ, of course! And a return to what began as a simple one-shot and is … well, still going on!

Yes, of course, I’m talking about the Zorcerer of Zo. Finally, we find out what happened when Princess Zephyr and her band of unlikely aides joined the Badger King for dinner in his palace. Were questions about Zephyr’s sisters answered? Was Jarrod misunderstood? Again? Did Thomas get his fill of chicken? Did Webster speak? These and other questions are answered herein, though some of the answers won’t be what you might expect.

At any rate, the cast is covered in the issue. And by the way, if you’re one who notices such things, I’m aware the filename is incorrectly listing the issue as #21. Sorry about the inconsistency. We will do better next time.

Enough babbling for now. Enjoy the issue.

New Promo from Trilobite

Okay, technically, it’s not new per se, since it aired on an earlier episode … but I said I was going to put it out on the feed for you to use and keep and cherish as we do, and I never did … so this is me making up for lost time. This promo will also be available along with all of our promos in the sidebar on the home page.

Trilobite, you rock in ways the ROlling Stones can only dream of as they continue to attempt to gather moss. Your eloqution skills make ‘Enry ‘Iggins roar with the wrath of a Tyrannosaurus Harrisonicus. Thank you ever so much for such a fine piece of writing, and such a fabulous production of same. We are both honored and flattered by it.

As for the rest of you …

Enjoy, and thanks for spreadin’ the Jetpack love.

(Yes, I was gonna say monkey love, but the images that immediately sprung to mind made me rapidly alter course.)

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #21: Welcome To The House Of Fun

Hey, gang. On a time crunch, as seems to occur frequently when I post these … but you’ve been more than patient, so let’s just get to it, this latest and final installment of our Bureau 13 adventure.

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #20: The House That Evil Built


We’re back, and only a day later than predicted and/or promised in the previous issue!

What are we back with? Why, more Bureau 13, of course! Come with us as we continue our investigation in Seattle, trying both literally and figuratively to find the key to that old Victorian house. You’re just one click away from adventure, intrigue, and a dash of comedy thrown in for good measure. Share and enjoy.

I tried an experiment in the way I introduce the cast. Let me know what you think. I hope it makes the task of distinguishing who’s who during the game an easier experience.

Yo! Here comes J.I.N.G.O.!

Hey, gang, Josh here. My newest QAGS project, J.I.N.G.O. — America’s Greatest Combat Squad,  is here and ready for you to buy! J.I.N.G.O. is a QAGS setting I wrote based on the millitary action cartoons I loved as a child of the 1980s.  Leighton “Leopard Women of Venus” Connor did all the groovy interior art.  I’m pretty proud of the whole project. GO GIVE IT A LOOK-SEE!

First Of May!!

Hey there, cats and kitties!

Just a little quickie, if you will, to commemorate this most important and auspicious of days. Thank you for listening, and thank you to Jonathan Coulton, without whom this commemoration would not be possible.

Listen, love it, live it.

And if you’ve a mind to, hop on over to Jonathan Coulton’s website and download any number of fabulously awesome tunes.

Have a great day! It’s an awesome day for being outside.

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #18: An Easter Eggstravaganza!

I’m keeping this very brief because it’s nearly 4 a.m. here and I need to be up and active in about two and a half hours, but I wanted to make sure this was posted on time. You see, this is what happens when you don’t realize the episode you’ve been not editing is a holiday episode–for a holiday that is … TOMORROW!!!

Anyway, in this issue, we give you another one-shot, but this time, it’s Toon: The Cartoon Roleplaying game, from Steve Jackson Games. What better way to celebrate a holiday involving hiding things, hunting for things, woodland creatures, and … er … eggs? Enjoy. I’m tired and the cast is in the opening remarks, so you’re just gonna have to do without a list here.
