About this podcast
Faculty Meeting is the general advice, discussion & game theory podcast content of The RPG Academy website. This is where we discuss issues and ideas from our game table or yours. We also have a series of long form Actual Play Podcasts under The Campaigns title. When we try out new games those are called The Trials and our newest one shot just for fun shows are called Field Trips. We also do interview shows called Show andTell and on occasion have done some movie reviews called Movie Day.

Hello Academaniacs! Welcome to Detention!   This episode of Detention is sponsored by Galatune.   As usual, these episodes are a little more rough around the edges, with less editing to reflect a more conversational tone. They also include more of the tangents, bad jokes, and adult language that we tend to use when we're hanging out and having fun. Detention LIVE is the new weekly LIVE talk show format podcast from The RPG Academy. Extra curricular is where the hosts discuss things happening outside of their RPG lives. Michael talks about AcadeCon, of course.  And Stranger Things Season 2 Emily talks about her in-development Magical Girl game: Domina magica 10 Things Improv game Where have my fingers been. In Used Books - Emily talks about the first and only game she ran and the importance of session 0's (take a drink) plus the value of the characters having secret goals to achieve. Cryptozoology - MawMaw or things that jump up out of the Ground Accessories Audience Q&A As always, thanks for listening. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or requests for future episodes. We hope you enjoy.

    Welcome to Lawful & Orderly: Special Visions Unit! The RPG Academy podcast will occasionally host a couple of episodes of Lawful & Orderly, but the entire series can be found on the Lawful & Orderly podcast itself. This episode is the third of our City Stories, and you don't have to know anything about Lawful & Orderly to jump in and enjoy this two-parter. Lawful & Orderly is a light-hearted fantasy police procedural set in the magical city of Lan Arcanym. Lawful & Orderly is usually played using D&D 5th edition, but this episode is played using Wushu. Each episode of Lawful & Orderly is broken into two parts, but you don't need to have listened to any other episodes in order to follow the story. In this episode, we follow the officers of the Criminal Sorcery Investigation. This series usually streams every Monday at 8:00 pm EST on our Twitch channel: twitch.tv/TheRpgAcademy. (L&O live episodes are on a holiday break until January 2018.) If you tune in for the live Twitch stream, you can be a member of our jury and determine the outcome of our cases! The audio for this episode was pulled directly from the Twitch stream, so it may not meet the standards you're used to. You can also watch this episode in full on our YouTube page. The GM for this episode was Andrew J. Young, and our players were Scott Brown (Deus S. Machina), Marty McGuire (as Chekhov S. Gunn), Clara (as Bruna S. Boss).
