What settings sound awesome but are let down by a poor ruleset? Or is the ruleset better than the setting? We meld the two sides of our brains together to appreciate everything gaming has to offer.
It is required that we talk about Dungeons & Dragons. They will revoke our podcasting credentials if we don’t. So we fulfill our contractual obligations. And talk about new TV.
It’s episode 300. That’s a lot of episodes. That’s like six years worth of podcasts. Why would we do that? What are we thinking? We celebrate the only way we know how: getting angry at each other.
What type of person do you play in games? What type of person are you in real life? Why do we hang out with you? You need professional help.
Dale just discovered the internet and wants to talk about all the magical things it can do. Even though we’ve all been using the internet for years. But, you know, if it wasn’t right in front of his face, it just didn’t exist. We humor him.

We talk about the One Roll Engine from Greg Stolze and friends. That also means we talk about all the various settings available for it and pick our favorite. And then we die to a horrific head wound.
No one likes this movie. No one. I can’t imagine why we watched it. What were we thinking? Did we lose a bet? Why do bad things happen to good people?
We discuss the way that games have used Martial Arts. And then we complain about how other cultures are under represented in roleplaying games. It’s that kind of episode. But with more kicking.
