WWPD News From the Front

Intensify Forward Firepower Episode 10: A New Host smashes through your shielding and launches a boarding party as special guest Michael Gernes (the producer of Star Wars Armada at FFG) heads to the bridge of the Flesh Star Destroyer. Joining him there are, as always Drunk Tarkin, Dano, Easy, and Steve Skyshuffler - not that he can pronounce it. In Episode 10, the guys chat with Michael on the design process behind Armada before getting him in front of the interrogation droid in an attempt to extract information on future Armada releases. The episode is rounded out when Michael joins the crew to talk about Easy's squadron-led victory, DT's hard-learned lessons, and Skyshuffler's use of Garm's Gups.

The sub-episodes continue as the crew of the FSD bring you Intensify Forward Firepower Episode 9.6: The Tub Continued! This show continues where the last one ended, with Drunk Tarkin's return and a session detailing the latest tournament list. Unbeknownst to the boys at the time, Steve would ultimately play the list in a tournament before DT, so the "Garm's Gups" list devised in this episode truly was a group effort!

n this very NSFW episode, the guys return from their wasteland adventures and get back behind the microphone!

 

In Act I, we delve into some GenCon news about X-Wing, cover off a Kickstarter that “excites” the Bludgelord, and generally lose our train of thought.

 

In Act II, we remember tales from the Ranui Wasteland as our TNT campaign kicked off last week at TCOW. Then we dive into some really good listener’s questions. 

 

In Act III, the dreaded topic of gamer burnout rears it’s ugly head. But have no fear, the guys have some survival tips on how to make it through!
