Axe of the Blood God: Nadia and Kat Build Their Ultimate RPG Teams

PODCAST | Nadia and Kat start the show with some nice, calming Undertale talk, then get all fired up over custom RPG parties.

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), we talk a bit about Undertale's release on the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, and why Toby Fox's unconventional RPG is still charming the pants off fans two years after its initial release.

Once that's out of the way, Kat and I build our ultimate RPG parties using characters from RPGs released across the decades. What's more important? Power, skills, or fireside chemistry? Let's discuss this. It's really important.

Oh, and we comb through some of the (many) responses we got to our last episode. Man, you guys turn into a bunch of Talky Tinas when I go on vacation!
