Power Word Skill Podcast

Power Word Skill is a Live Play podcast featuring DM Zemo and Derek Badichek.

About DM Zemo:

Real name Phil Carroll. Born and raised in New Jersey. First Learned AD&D back in 1999 with the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure Game boxed set. Never could find anyone to play with him. Learned 3rd Edition around 2000 (good riddance THAC0!). Still could not find anyone to play with him. Moved out to Minnesota in 2014. Started a 3rd Edition group. Bought 5th edition. Never went back to floating modifiers and 2 page grappling rules. Been running 5th Edition games ever since, occasionally dipping his toes into various other RPG systems including: Dungeon World, Paranoia, Splinter, Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition, Call of Cthulhu, Burning Wheel, and Phoenix: Dawn Command. Fan of Critical Role, Acquisitions Incorporated, and The Adventure Zone. Hopes to be at least 1/20th as popular/successful.

About Derek Badichek:

Real name Derek Badichek. Derek was born and raised in New Jersey. At 6 years old he met Zenon or whatever the hell Phil is calling himself for this. They became friends at age 8 after Phil destroyed Derek’s Nintendo backpack, but that is a story for another day. They spent the next two decades as the best of friends, and fostered traditions of playing tabletop and video games together on into the night. In late 2012, Derek started the podcast Breaking Badichek which ran for five years. He is also known for formerly being a co host of The Crapulent, his appearances on The Straight Shooters podcast, appearances on the Plus 2 Comedy Podcast, and his fanatical love of cats.
