And so we come to the end… This is our very last episode and we took the opportunity to basically explain how Delve works, if it ever did. This is sort of a peak behind the curtain of where we’ve been and where we go from here. We give some final thoughts, advice and shout outs to everyone who helped us get here. You can follow Alex and Nathan on T…
 
Back on episode 2 we took preconceptions about roleplaying and dispelled them, with an experienced player explaining the basics to a novice. Now, on this penultimate episode, we flip that around and have that same experienced player ask what the novice has learned in the last 6 years. However, if you’ve learned anything about that novice, you proba…
 
So your character is dead. Now what? In what will be the last of Nathan’s monologues, he talks about his recent revisiting of Spiritfarer and how it informs character development after the characters are already dead. With the new update adding Lily into the storyline, we get a better understanding of how characters still resonate in a narrative af…
 
As we near the end of Delve, we look at how you end a campaign, something that you may never have actually done. Why do campaigns end? And if you could end a campaign, what would you want to do for your characters and story? We do a few thought experiments of what the end of a campaign should be on this episode of Delve. You can follow Alex and Nat…
 
As we come to a close in our Delve journey, we look at the Hero’s Journey laid out by Joseph Campbell. How does this apply to our show? More important, how does this apply to some of the prevalent fiction and mythology you have actually heard about? And what can it all mean in gaming? These questions and many more partially answered on this episode…

Some may think this is an April Fool’s episode, but we really have some big news regarding the show and our upcoming plans. Also: There are many games we are playing, DC is quite tired, James gasps at least three times, Alex crashes into a planet and Nathan can’t run a civilization. You can listen to the episode here or download it for later! https…
 
So your party decided to be the villains… Or did they just become “morally compromised”? Or are they the anti-heroes? Or did they just steal everything that wasn’t nailed down? Or did they (accidentally) set a town on fire? Or did they moonlight as murder hobos? Chances are some of these scenarios may be familiar to you! Nathan apologizes ahead of …
 
Jason Anarchy has plenty of drinking quests for you to go on and now he has them in a convenient six-pack. We discuss Jason and Nathan’s time working in newspapers, game bars and bladder busters.

The first half of the live show was mostly about Goat Simulator. So what you are going to hear now is what happens afterwards.

Remember when we talked about how you can’t copyright game mechanics? Well, turns out you can at least patent them. What happened with WB, Shadow of Mordor and the Nemesis system? What if this happened with tabletop gaming? Everything we know and probably stuff we don’t on this episode. Also, did you know someone tried to patent podcasting? Yup! Yo…
 
Well, that didn’t go the way we thought. So, the Delve Holiday Special 2077 could not seem to get through our focus groups or polishing methods, so Alex and Nathan explain what went wrong. You can follow Alex and Nathan on Twitter, as well as the show itself at DelvePodcast. Make sure you follow along to join in on all the topics! Stop by our Disco…
 
Somewhere in this episode we discuss puzzles in gaming. Where we discuss that is sort of a puzzle in itself. It was likely between discussing video game company acquisitions and Street Sharks. So, this is a pretty normal episode. ALSO: Groundhog flakes, stuff you can’t eat at IKEA, ghost sharks, Power Rangers eating at Krispie Kream, something abou…
 
It’s a Delve special as Nathan goes over his Best to Worst list for 2020.

Since it’s the first episode of the new year, this episode is mostly Nathan and Alex catching up on some recent events in one of the least structured of our typically unstructured discussions. From virtual BFIG to Nathan’s new computer adventure to whatever Among Us is, we definitely had things to ramble about. You can follow Alex and Nathan on Twi…
 
It’s the very first Delve episode of the year and things are happening. Since Winter Sales are going on, we talk about games we’ve picked up. What will Nathan subject himself to now that he can stream games? Perhaps Alex will get a 14 point buck… in a video game. Perhaps Nathan will play a bird dating sim for Valentine’s Day. Who knows. Also: We su…

In the midst of all the shiny new big budget games on the market, Psitanium wanted to take a moment to explain why he’s not playing them and is instead awash with indie titles. We’re experiencing a gaming Renaissance, but you might not know it. Moreover, you should be taking advantage of it. You can download the episode here or listen below! https:…
 
By popular demand, we are finally doing an episode on initiative. Turns out it took so long to do this episode because of our lack of initiative, so this makes narrative sense. Alright, so do we need initiative at all? Could it be used for more than starting combat? Can it be implemented in a different way than rolling? This and so much more on Del…
