The Hijinkscrew is back in the bunker again this week to talk about another favorite game setting. But because Eric is a renegade maverick that plays by his own rules, it's not a D&D setting this time. Instead we're talking about the Palladium Books setting known as Rifts!

Do you like multiverse settings with wildly varied dimensions being mashed together? Or crazy fights with power armor wearing cyborgs fighting dragons or vampires? If you answered yes to either of those then Rifts might be just what you're looking for!

Will they finally find Alton's mother? And what of the enigmatic Harold Greyspear? You'll have to listen in to find out. 

Also on this week's episode: Hunter is quite drunk; Alton has the perfect spell for this moment; Fulgrim makes a new friend; and Ion does to the boss what Ion does to bosses.

*SPOILER ALERT*

The Hijinkscrew is back again with another movie roundtable for this week's mini-episode. And we are finally, after months of delay talking about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2! It's only what? Two and a half months late? Nice and topical, just the way we like it. 

Consider this the official spoiler warning. These roundtables always assume that you've either seen the movie, or don't care about spoilers. Spoiler alert for the episode itself, Tom can't remember the names of anything from this movie! Stephen was even able to remember it and he was running like a hundred degree fever when we recorded this!

The Hijinkscrew is deep in the belly of the beast this week. Deeper and more bellyish than ever before! Having infiltrated the Temple of the Howling Hatred, they have finally achieved what they set out to do fifty episodes ago - find Alton's parents. Well, parent. To say there are dangers lurking around every corner is an understatement. Remember, belly, beast. 

Also on this week's episode: Alton enjoys some father-son time; Hunter has a bad idea; Fulgrim has a good idea; and Ian has some serious issues with Bangarangsplaining.

What do you get if you take Conan the Barbarian, Dune and Mad Max, and throw them all together in a D&D themed blender? You get Dark Sun! On this week's mini-episode, DM Tom leads the Hijinkscrew through a discussion on why Dark Sun is his favorite setting, even though he hasn't really had a chance to play much of it. But how can you not love a setting that's got despotic mad sorcerer kings, a unique take on magic, and super gross insect people?!

The Hijinkscrew welcome a very special guest this week as superfan Meriko joins the show to help us talk about the very good and extremely overdue cinematic debut* of Wonder Woman! Join us as we break down what we thought of the film and what we might hope to see from the series going forward. 

Oh and SPOILERS. We don't go through the entire plot but we sure don't hold back talking about specifics either. SPOILER ALERT! We forgot to say it at the start of the episode but like always, here there be SPOILERS.

*Yes we know that she technically first showed up in Batman Vs Superman but that steaming pile of shame shouldn't even be counted as a movie.

Slight change in routine this week. Instead of an adventure episode, we have our KublaCon 2017 Round Up! The Hijinkscrew survived the con and have returned to share their tales of glory from the battlefield of the Sequoia room at the Burlingame Hyatt Regency.

A massive thank you to everyone that came out and said hi to us, and a huge shout out to all the volunteers and DMs that offered up their time to make sure that the games could happen. You're the real heroes!

Ding! What's that sound? Is it the sound of the party hitting level 7? Well yes, technically it is. But it's also the sound of them hitting level 8 because that last adventure was so friggin' long and this damn campaign has to end sometime!

The gang is all here on this week's episode to talk about their shiny new toys and abilities that they earned for all their hard work and murder. There are new spells and hit points to increase, ability scores to improve, and some first class back pedaling from Jordan, who admits he was wrong about multi-classing, but somehow it's still Aaron's fault.

With yet another enemy stronghold now a smoking crater in the ground, the Hijinkscrew has a moment to catch their breath and assess their next move.

You know, the thing that we set up back in episode one.

Can the party hope to overcome tragedy and pull together in order to defeat their fiercest and most fiery foe yet, the Burning Titan? Will they be able to go on without their beloved "ranger". Or will grief consume them and allow evil to win the day. Listen in to find out!

Quick programming note: No housekeeping this week and there are a few strange audio pops. No idea what caused them and try as hard as we could, some of them were not able to be removed. Sorry about that!

DM Tom is back this week with more helpful hints and tricks for running a D&D game, this time with a focus on how to run an adventure for younger players. We also answer a question from a listener on devils vs demons. Turns out they're different!

The party continues their desperate climb to freedom this week, but come face to face with the true power of the Circle of the Scarlet Moon. This is the part where I'd usually make another fire related pun but I can't think up anymore. You could say I'm out of fuel for the fire I guess? But you probably shouldn't.  

Also on this weeks episode; Hunter picks the wrong moment to fail; Alton finds himself in a thorny situation; Fulgrim gets conflicting instructions; and Ian finishes his foe in the most awesome way. Seriously it's super rad.

Things are going just great for the party this week. I mean, at least they're out of their prison cells now. Still trapped inside a derelict firetrap of a building, surrounded by murderous pyromaniac cult members. Other than that though, things are going pretty good. Can they complete their escape from the Cult of the Eternal Flame? Or will their efforts go up in smoke? Tune in to find out!

Also on this week's episode: Hunter reunites with some old buddies; Ian can't catch a break; Fulgrim discovers hidden powers; and Alton hits a high note.

*SPOILER ALERT!*

It's a departure from our regular D&D yammering this week because we're talking all things Logan. You may have heard of it. It's the harrowing tale of a man with knives for hands who discovers he's a father and must take a roadtrip with his old school principal. Pretty standard stuff. 

But seriously, we're going to spoil everything about Logan on this episode. So if you haven't seen it yet, feel free to toss this one on the back burner until you can check it out. We also devote a few minutes to bash on the older, much worse Xmen movies and hear about why Centurion is the greatest comic book character from Stephen.

The spotlight is on the party this week as they prepare to try and dazzle the Scarlet Moon with their amazing skills. Can they bluff their way into the Cult of the Eternal Flame? Or will their best laid plans go up in smoke? Listen in to find out!

Also on this week's episode: Alton shatters the DMs fun again; Ian really just wants a boss to crit; Fulgrim is the last man standing; and Hunter transforms right before your very eyes!

We've been burning the midnight oil in the Plus One to Hijinks laboratory, crunching numbers and doing sick science tricks to analyze every aspect of the results from Stephen's last few months of play with the revised Beast Master Ranger.
