24: Geeking Out With Mike Perna

Bryan, Mike, & James return with a special episode of Geek at Arms. From Innroads Ministries and the Bard & Bible podcast, we’re joined by Mike Perna! His Grace tells us what he’s been up to with these fantastic ministries and his work at various conventions. Kicking off Geek Out, Perna shares his enjoyment of getting the new Cypher System Core Rulebook and the unique board game Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr. Next, Bryan describes what it’s like fighting rancors in Star Wars: Vader Immortal – Episode II on the Oculus Rift, and his upcoming D&D session with members of Saving the Game. James talks about how different Skyrim looks and feels now that he’s begun downloading various mods for it and how impressed he was by the Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Our Mike then details his love/hate relationship with the platforming game Hollow Knight and we all chime in with our enjoyment of the delightful animated series Hilda. Finally, James debuts a new segment on the show, Pop Quiz!

* This first episode was actually recorded a week before PAX, but various circumstances (children, work, zombies) kept us from publishing it till now.
