This is the Blank String podcast, staring Luke, Tim and Matt as they talk about things and stuff and junk and things.

Blank String Dig Through Troll Scat Part II

Luke as the wonderful DM is guiding Thodus (played by Matt) and Lesleigh (played by Tim) through the wonderful and glorious game Dungeon and Dragons. Last time the two met Eddie who was their guide for their initiation job to collect Wisdom Jade which is processed by Trolls up Mount Lion Mountain. They start in a heated battle with an Orc before continuing their dangerous adventure up the mountain. 

Blank String Dig Through Troll Scat Part I

We continue the D&D adventure. Luke taking the helm as an inexperienced Dungeon Master, Matt playing the not too bright yet highly dexterous Half-Orc Ranger named Thodus and Tim playing Lesleigh the Dragonborn Warlock who will, out of nowhere, go from placid to insane in an instant. They meet a Halfling named Eddie who is guiding them on their initiation where they will have to find some Wisdom Jade, an ingredient used by the Blank String faction in the manufacturing of wishes. The only snag is, they can only harvest it from Troll scat in the Troll reserve up the side of Moutain Lion Mountain.

Blank String start playing Dungeons and Dragons

Luke is leading Matt and Tim on the journey into the unknown. A magical world filled with paper, pen, dice and... wait it's all digital? It is still the ultimate level of nerdiness requiring imagination and wit to solve puzzles, kill monsters, save the world and fall in love (probably)? Luke, as the Dungeon Master, helps Matt and Tim design their first D&D characters. As you guessed they made sensible decisions would really help them get through some complex problems and solve some expertly designed puzzles... What do you mean he has -1 intelligence? She is from HR? Is there an HR department in D&D? Putting all that aside, we love it and hope you do as well!

Blank String Review Phase III of the MCU

Luke, Matt and Tim power on through the latest phase of the MCU movies in an epic style. There are some absolute belters in this phase including Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Thor: Ragnarok and 2 Spiderman movies! So whether you have agreed with us or not, it does not matter because the best is yet to come. Much like the ending of phase III of the MCU, listen to the anti-climatic ending of the review of these blockbuster movies. If you are a true fan then you will flip a coin and if you get heads, skip to the end of the episode and claim that you missed it all because of the blip. Luke apologises for the quality of his audio in this episode, he has no idea what went wrong.

Blank String Review Phase II of the MCU

After Luke's low score reviews and Tim's high score review and Matt's a little bit lower than Tim's we decide to continue with Phase II of the MCU. There are some belter movies in Phase II and we all finally agree on at least Guardians of the Galaxy to be one of the best Marvel movies (if not the best). Like last time if you do not want to hear any spoilers for these movies then please skip this episode. If you feel like you want to compare you opinion against these three (not) experts then have a listen of this episode.

Blank String Review Phase I of the MCU

After Luke finished binging all the movies in the MCU he is now ready to give his opinion. Both Matt and Tim have previously seen them all and this makes for a fun trip down memory lane for them. Luke has a lot to say about these movies which are loved by so many people. If you have not seen the Marvel movies before and do not want any spoilers I suggest you go watch them, most are on Disney+. Otherwise listen along, see if they are something you would like to watch if you haven't or compare your own review with ours.

Blank String play Zork part 4

Luke, Matt and Tim continue their quest for knowledge, for power, for glory and honour on the terrific game Zork. Many twist and turns along the way, a surprising plot twist which no one expected. They don't make games like they used to. Join us in what is most likely the finally of the Zork saga.

Blank String play Zork part 3

Luke, Matt and Tim are back in the wonderful world of Zork! In part 1 we die by killing ourselves with a sword. In part 2 we die because a troll hit us on the head. Only Zork knows how the three of us will die at the end of this episode. So if you enjoyed listened to the previous two episodes of a character walking around trying to eat, lick and break everything they see then you are going to enjoy this episode even more!

Blank String play Zork part 2

Join us Luke, Matt and Tim as we continue this exciting retro adventure! Last time we wondered if we could commit suicide, turns out we could with a glowing sword. Instead of continuing our adventure, we started again! This is really like part 1 all over again, but we get further than the first episode so maybe it is part 1.5. Regardless we push on. So please come and join us as we play an 80s video game which we are now addicted to.

Blank String play Zork part 1

Any 80s kid might know about this little gem of a game, Zork. Unfortunately, Luke, Matt and Tim are all 90s kids and never got the chance to play such games. So we downloaded the game published by Infocom and decided we would play through and describe everything in detail to you, the listener. So sit back, relax and listen to the first part of the first Zork game. What do you mean you can't lick everything?
