THE STATE OF GEEK UNLEASHED
WRITTEN BY ROB DUKE ON AUGUST 1, 2018
We began Geek Unleashed last year to share our love of geek culture with others, creating a safe place where everyone could be themselves. We wrote reviews for a few tabletop roleplaying games and board games and attempted to start a Livestream Dresden Files RPG game. However, life has way of changing your plans and keeping you on your toes and sometimes off them. Technical issues kept our Dresden game from taking off, and our personal lives forced us to take a very unexpected hiatus.
After getting back on our feet, we took a few months to plan a couple of weekly shows to film locally that will be broadcasted live. One of which we are ready to announce today.
Before the Dawn of the Rebellion, the crew of the Devil’s Gambit do what they can to earn a living. Making deals with Hutts and being hunted down for past transgressions, the crew try to make a name for themselves while laying low from the Empire. Smugglers Run merges Star Wars with themes from Leverage and Ocean’s 11, putting a new twist with love on a beloved universe that we all grew up with. Smugglers Run will air Sunday, August 12, 2018 at 7pm EST.
Game Master: Rob Duke
Players: Gregory Harris, Greg Mason, Lilith Moon, and Adam SmithSystem: Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars RPG
We are currently working on a Dungeons & Dragons show set in Faerun along the Sword Coast. Our goal is to also release a series called One Shot which showcases a new RPG each week. We would also love to create a board game review series, but we are small and already starting to stretch ourselves thin. As we continue to grow, we will release more content over time.
All livestream shows will be converted to podcasts so you can listen on the go!
We created a Patreon page to help us create more content, upgrade the quality of shows and articles, and even allow us to afford more giveaways on our new Twitch.tv channel. Geek Unleashed started as and continues to be a passion project. We appreciate your patience through our breaks and as we come back with new things. Your patronage through Patreon and tips through Twitch.tv will allow us to be more consistent and add more and more entertainment with you in mind.

If you would like to give us a hand but cannot help financially, we are looking for articles to cover the vast areas of geek culture. If you’d like to write a review of a movie, tv show, games (board, RPG, video), you can submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please complete personal edits before submitting. If your article is something we can use, we will post it on our site and share it to social media, crediting the writer.
We look forward to following our passion and creating further content for you now and for years to come!
