For quite a while I have pondered making a podcast talking about the fun old Street Fighter RPG, but a Podcast can be a lot of work, and with so few official books is the effort worth it? So, I decided to focus on the translations of Warrior’s Fist (Punho do Guerreiro) and other Brazilian fan supplements, plus my own projects and fiction. Recently, I nearly started a SFRPG podcast due to a chat on the Facebook group about tutorial videos. Thankfully, I now feel like I don’t need to, since Kris Newton of the MegaDumbCast recently finished a fantastic & funny analysis of the Secrets of Shadoloo.
I first came across the MegaDumbCast in September 2019 via Mage: the Podcast, which I have blogged about previously. Since then they have collaborated again: Making an Archmage Dating Sim with Kris Newton. A fun and interesting episode diving deep in to Mage’s metaplot and characters, plus the game concept sounded great!
The MegaDumbCast (MDC) has primarily focused on Palladium games, such as: Heroes Unlimited, Beyond the Supernatural, Transdimensional Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Ninjas & Superspies; so Kris is no stranger to fun RPGs focused on Martial Arts. MDC’s Secrets of Shadoloo series is extra special, with each episode focusing on a single page, methodically going through the whole book, and even the covers! Each page was scoured in search of clues, to then ascertain the many Secrets of Shadoloo. Consider the following clues: Ler Drit & Cross Fit, No Bull – a True Crime podcast, Shadoloo & Snacks, the importance of Turnstiles, and so much more is revealed.
