It was a light week of content here but what we were able to push out was pretty solid. So here’s a look back at the content we pushed out this week:
On Monday, Adam contributed his first post of the week by taking a look at the Dungeons and Dragons book: Player’s Option: Heroes of the Elemental Chaos
On Tuesday, Dan found some wallpapers that look like…well, wallpapers!
On Wednesday, we took the day off. Geeking out is hard work ya’ll. I did go see The Hunger Games though so I’ll chat about that on our next podcast.
On Thursday, Adam recounted our Friday night with the Nerdist crew.
On Friday, I reviewed the fun board game Rallyman that brings rally racing to your tabletop.
For our random old post this week you should check out my review of the comic SVK.

The real-life motorsport that is rally racing is a wholly unique experience that’s not widely known in these United States. Mostly confined to Europe you’ll find offroad point-to-point racing where the drivers compete for the fastest time during a stage. The cars start individually at preset intervals to allow the cars general free-use of the courses that aren’t built to allow a large number of cars to run at the same time. The stage times accumulate to an overall time that determines the winner. Boardgames like Formula D have already tackled the world of Formula 1 racing and PGM favorite Snow Tails adapted a similar tabletop formula for the world of dog sled racing. Today we’re looking at Rallyman to see how well they’ve brought rally to a tabletop near you. (more…)
For one night only, some of your friends here at Perpetual Geek Machine went nerd, well, Nerdist to be precise. In his unannounced quest to become king of all nerd media Chris Hardwick has been taking his Nerdist podcast on the road, and this past Friday it landed in the City of Brotherly Love.
I felt confident that the event itself would be entertaining and fun, but I knew I was in for something special when, while we formed a line around the block waiting to get into the venue a homeless man who was perched in a doorway woke up due to all the noise, looked up and down the sidewalk at hordes of nerds and moved along to another spot. Personally I’d like to think he was moved by our witty banter and sci-fi based t-shirts to find a job and turn his life around, but I know it’s just the fact that we nerds and geeks aren’t even as socially acceptable as the homeless.
In this column we’ve featured movies, games, comics and more. Far and wide I search looking for wallpapers that would look good on any desktop. Alot of times they don’t fit into any particular genre. In fact I’d say that’s most of the time. So today I’m featuring a few that I personally use all the time. They’re wallpapers that look like… well… wallpapers.

The latest in the Player’s Option series finds us travelling to the Plane of Elemental Chaos. Where the last two books gave us a great deal of flavorful and intricate options, this one deals with the baser, primordial ones.
Players, ever wonder where those elementals come from that get conjured just as you get close to the evil wizard? DMs of higher level campaigns, tired of using the cliché “super-powerful evil cleric run amok” or “this quest is the will of the gods” as a plot device? Give elemental prince primordials a try as a source of adventure.
If you find yourself wanting to play a character/NPC that is the embodiment of the meme, “Kill it with fire” this is your book, read on…
