Gaming in the Universe of… Mythbusters

mythbustersThe Mythbusters are a team that tackle modern myths of all sorts.  They do what they can to either prove or disprove the myth.  Everything from whether jumping off the floor of a crashing elevator will save your life to whether or not Archimedes actually could have built a death ray.

They are the people your PCs need to go see for building an esoteric Rube Goldberg device.  These are the crazy scientists operating in an abandoned warehouse in a Steampunk setting.  Adam and Jamie are frustrated wizards trying desperately to make new magical items in your high fantasy setting.  Sometimes they succeed and sometimes they fail.

  2. Wandering around your blog and this reminds me of an idea I’ve had for a while. Penn and Teller as Men in Black. Why couldn’t they all be colleagues? They’re all skeptics and de-bunkers as a cover for their operations as agents of Bureau 13 or the MiB. Make The Amazing Randi their Agent Zed.
