Monkeys Took My Jetpack #32: One Night In Vegas

Okay, so it’s not what I said it would be–and, to be frank, it’s not what I thought it would be. Listen to the opening remarks for a more thorough explanation. I hope you will forgive, and I’m confident that you will enjoy.

In this issue, you will find no stirring musical score; you will find no exhilarating sound effects; what you will find, however, is a quite hilarious, if sometimes a bit twisted, game of Fiasco, run by … a special guest. It’s a fairly well-known fact that I’ve not been the biggest fan of Fiasco in the past, but I have to say, between this game and the holiday and Dresden Fiasco games we played on the Gutter Skypes, I’ve become much more enamored with the game. The secret? Take copious notes, so you can keep track of the various relationships between the characters, and also so that when you’re feeling uninspired and it’s your turn to have a scene, you can see which pre-rolled story items haven’t yet come into play. I’ve done a 180 regarding Fiasco, and look forward to the next time I get to play.

And in the words of Forrest Gump, “That’s all I have to say about that.”

Cartoon Action Hour – Captive Souls #5

Hot on the heels of Captive Souls #4 comes this installment of Captive Souls. Our session happened to fall on St. Patrick’s Day, and Lioncourt used that to his advantage in a manner quite befitting the likes of we Jetpackless, given our fondness for holiday specials. And since this year’s St. Pattie’s Day falls during our hiatus, think of this as our St. Patrick’s Day special. Sure, it’s a rerun… but we prefer to think of it as a tradition! Yeah, that’s it! That’s the ticket!

So happy St. Patrick’s Day to one and all…

…And always gravitate toward the green.

Cartoon Action Hour – Captive Souls #4

Hi, folks. Here we are again, this time with the fourth episode of Captive Souls. This was originally recorded back in March of 2009. We are close to halfway through the back-issues. It is my goal to get us to the halfway point, at least, before our hiatus begins.

Howdy, folks.

This was a long time coming, and I hope you find it worth the wait. Not a whole lot else to say that isn’t repeating my opening remarks in the podcast. So, grab yourself a drink of somethin’ nice, sit back, relax …

and enjoy!

Cartoon Action Hour – Captive Souls #3

Hi, gang. Here’s our third episode of the Captive Souls series. The things I have to say are in the opening remarks, so rather than read this, just download the episode and enjoy.

Cartoon Action Hour – Captive Souls #2

Here we are again. As promised, fairly hot on the heels of Captive Souls #1, here is the second installment.


…And enjoy.

And by the way, fear not. Much of what has been keeping issues of MTMJ at bay is starting to work itself out, so there should be new stuff trickling in very soon. I will not insult you again by putting a fine date on it, but things are looking up. I appreciate your patience more than you can know.

And now, on with the episode.

Cartoon Action Hour – Captive Souls #1

Hi, gang. Yeah yeah, I know, I know, MTMJ#32 didn’t happen when I said it would, and still hasn’t happened. Suffice it to say that things are in a mild state of upheaval. Nothing to be concerned about; no one’s going anywhere or pod-fading or anything like that. It’s just that we aren’t playing as much as we’d like, due to real-life challenges. Alas, this has a tendency to demotivate our poor, slaving editor, and no amount of whip-cracking seems to make any difference. So in the meantime, and not just because of lack of content (See opening remarks in the podcast), we bring you the first episode of Captive Souls, as played through Cartoon Action Hour, and as run by Lioncourt. It may’ve started on the Gutter Skypes, but by cracky, it’s finishing here, and I figure we might as well start from the beginning. Don’t worry, it shouldn’t take but a few weeks to get caught up to where we left off. Think of it as a chance to catch the subtle nuances you missed the first time.

…and enjoy.

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #31: Life Could Be A Dream

Hey, gang!

We have a great new issue out for you to enjoy. You’ve waited long enough, and it’s time to see what happened when Princess Zephyr, Jarrod Stanwick, Thomas the Big Ol’ Grumpy Talking Bear, and Webster the Riding Spider went through Nick Pockets’s magic mirror and into the Dreamworld. All I will say is this: If there was ever any doubt that our dear and beloved GM Josh was a sick and twisted bastard (in the best possible way, mind you), after you’ve finished listening to this issue, that doubt will be permanently removed from your mind.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, dear listeners, is twofold:

1) Download and enjoy the issue.

2) Discuss the issue in our brand-spankin’-new forums!

We really are enjoying these new forums, and I want to thank Copycat042 for about the thousandth time for setting them up and managing them. Although we’re still getting kinks worked out, we want to see all of you there, because the old forums will be replaced by Christmas. And to those of you who’ve already registered and are posting, thank you.

And if you’re really feeling adventurous, our new forum supports the Tapatalk app for Android and iPhone. So if you really want to fly your jetpack into brand-new horizons, download that puppy and give ‘er a spin. I think you’ll love the results.

Enough writing from me. Go and enjoy all that we of Monkeys Took My Jetpack have to offer. And let us know what you think.

MonkeyCon Actual Play: Invaderz/Toon

As a special bonus, since we know you just can’t ever get enough MTMJ goodness (You Jetpack junkie, you!), and with a heapin’ helping of thanks to Trilobite and his Porcellaine Llama Theater podcast, we give you yet another actual-play recording from MonkeyCon–namely, an Invaderz game (which morphed into a Toon game) GMed by our own Patrick! Pat’s adroitness when helming both these games is becoming legendary around these parts, so I can say with utter certainty that if you love to laugh, you won’t want to miss these shenanigans.
