Jody bowed out of joining us this go around as this format with 4 guests would tend to run a little long (I agree with him). But he should be back for episode…
 
Episode 208 of The Independent Characters returns to one of our favorite series... the last time we did this was January of 2019.

Episode 204 of The Independent Characters is as late as we have ever been with a show. The current situation around the world has impacted us here as well (as you will hear on the show), but we finally were able to work out a time to record. A couple of notes however: We obviously had to record remotely, which isn't ever my first choice, but we mad…
 
Episode 203 of The Independent Characters tackles the subject of Necromunda Campaigns and their various iterations.

We have finally reached our 200th episode (although somewhat late), and that means it is time to take stock of where we came from, what has changed, and where we are going. We have spent nearly 10 years (April will be 10!) looking at this hobby and at times have planted our stake in the ground and made either predictions, or taken stances. We will …
 
Episode 199 of The Independent Characters is our year in review episode. Now we talked about this before, but with so many shows out there going over everything that released last year, we felt like a change was in order. We were the first show to take that route and quite honestly we were feeling like it was a bit stale anyway. This year we do som…
 
Episode 198 of The Independent Characters is a return to an Extended Warrior Lodge! Unfortunately, Discord was having some issues with Google today and people could not log into Discord servers around the world.

Episode 194 of The Independent Characters is a bit of a train wreck. We aren't going to lie. When Carl was going to be doing so much traveling in September, we expected that he would be able to fit in a couple of interviews. Justin Hill, Aaron Dembski-Bowden, John French, maybe even Robin Cruddace. However, delayed flights, jetlag, expired Drivers …
