Monkeys Took My Jetpack #100: Reunion!

It’s been twelve years in the making, and here it finally is!

MONKEYS TOOK MY JETPACK #100!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, I realize that I made the podcast with surprise in mind, and that these show notes will pretty much mess that whole idea up. Still, I think promoting of these people’s work far outweighs in importance the few seconds of “Oh! Wow!” you’d get from being totally surprised. If total surprise means that much to you, stop reading this, listen to the podcast, and then come back. We’ll wait.

Still waiting.

And still waiting.

Waiting some more.

Okay, I think we’re about done waiting now.

Okay, glad you’re back.

So here are links to works being done by the participants in this here 100th issue:

From Joshua Burnett:

From Patrick Murphy:

From Trilobite:


And in case you didn’t listen first, you sneaky so-and-so, there are still some surprises in store.

So go forth…

…and enjoy!

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #103: Justice, Part 2

Howdy, folks!

This is waaaaaaay overdue, and I don’t have time to do my usual job on these show-notes. I ask you to go to the show notes for MTMJ#102 for links, because they’re exactly the same as this one.

Except, of course, for this download link.

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #102: Justice, Part 1

Howdy, y’all.

We’re back again, and we’re back with Everywhen, that game of fast-paced, pulpy goodness.

Enjoy this, the first part of a two-part story. I envisioned it as having much more physical action than it did, but there’s some great character intraction here, so less action does not equal boring!

Even though I neglected to mention this in the podcast itself, I do want to acknowledge the book
Return of the Lazy Dungeon Master. This is not D&D, but I did use five of the seven steps outlined to create your scenario in the creation of this adventure. (The other two were pretty fantasy-game-specific.) As someone who struggles with plot development, I found the steps and advice presented in that book invaluable!

Feel free to comment on this, or any other issue, via our Facebook page.

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #99: Half-Baked, Part 2

Hi, gang!

Here we are, with the conclusion of our Stranger Stuff Christmas in July adventure!

Hope you’re having a great Christmas in July, should you choose to celebrate it—and if you don’t, thank you so much for indulging MTMJ’s acknowledgment of what can probably best be described as a quasi-holiday. And the “quasi” aspect is why I haven’t gone all-out with Christmas carols, or some of the more … shall wa say, inspired … choices I like to work into Christmas-themed issues, such as MTMJ#5.

The Game: Stranger Stuff, from Fat Goblin Games.

The System: TinyD6, from Gallant Knight Games.
The Supplement: Holiday Wish Book
The Download Link: Here.

Merry Christmas.

And enjoy!

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #98A: A Gingerbread Surprise!

This is just a little fun to tide you over till the next issue.

Enjoy. I know I did!

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #98: Half-Baked

merry christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In july.

I’d completely spaced on Christmas in July till I was getting ready to post last week’s issue. Luckily, I had a Christmas adventure from last December that was only sorta Christmas-themed, which makes it perfect for the weirdly-timed Christmas-in-July.

In this issue, to coincide with Christmas in July, along with a certain Netflix series whose fourth season has just wrapped, we’re playing Stranger Stuff, using the TinyD6 system, from Fat Goblin Games. I took this adventure from the Holiday Wish Book supplement. I highly encourage you to check these out. The TinyD6 system is the epitome of rules-lite, and still incredibly functional. We will definitely be returning to TinyD6 in general, and Stranger Stuff in particular.

Stop reading and start listening. The fun and holiday cheer are about to begin!

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #97: Tumbleweed

Howdy, pards!

I’m runnin’ plumb outa western slang to throw around like tumbleweeds in a tornado, so I’ll just say that in this here issue, we’re fixing’ to try out Everywhen, as powered by Barbarians of Lemuria, and enhanced with the Blood Sundown setting. Whew! That there’s a fistful!

By the by, there was, in fact, one thing I forgot to mention in my closing remarks. We at MTMJ are curious how you’re liking the outtakes we’ve been placing at the end of each podcast. Are you enjoying them as outtakes, or do you prefer them just left in the game section? I’m fine either way; on one hand, leaving them as part of the game session means less work for me as editor. On the other hand, it’s also fun to make the outtakes section for each issue. In other words, don’t worry about bruising any egos. I just want know where you stand.

Send feedback to, or leave a comment on our facebook page.

As for the Discord link, we’ll have that for ya lickety-split. Just not right now.

With that, go forth and enjoy the show!

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #96: Hittin’ the Dusty Trail

Well, here’s yet another example of better late than never. I am putting it out now rather than just waiting till next Monday beause, as I discuss in my closing remarks, I’ll be on vacation for a week or so, and in that time there’ll be no new MTMJ.

In this issue, we’re takin’ Wild West Cinema from Spectrum Games for a spin. Turns out, we really cottoned to it. So much so that I’m a mite perplexed as t’why we never let it out for a full gallop. But it could still happen, dif’rent group notwithstandin’.

We’d love to hear from you. Head on over to ourfriendly Facebook page and leave us a comment or two. We promise, we won’t bite, an’ our trigger fingers ain’t that itchy.

‘Nuff jabbering’. Time to stop finger-jawing’, and let you git to listenin’.

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #95: Fixin’ to Hit the Dusty Trail

Howdy, Partners!

In keeping’ with our Old West theme we started last issue, we’re jumping’ the time-stream all the way back to March 18, 2013, where we had a lotta palaver, and somewhere in all that managed to dredge up a few characters for Wild West Cinema, an extremely under-valued title from Spectrum Games. So set back, throw s’more wood on that campfire (Almost makes me wish I’d put that sound effect in—but naw, that’s what imagination is for.), and enjoy some time with old friends, some talk of games, gaming, Western movies, and character creation.

Links of Note:
Wild West Cinema
Capes, Cowls & Villains Foul
Spectrum Games
Adventures on Dungeon Planet
Risus: The Anything RPG
D6 System (Well, D6 Adventure, but it’s a good starting point. No longer free, but still very economically priced.)
Mini Six
PDQ (Prose Descriptive Qualities)
Swashbucklers of the Seven Skies
Fate Core
Fate Accelerated
Young Centurions
Icons (We complain about Icons in this issue, but we like the Assembled Edition, which came later.)
All Stars
Feng Shui

Y’all can look up movies in IMDB on yer own, Hoss.
