Leadership – Ep26

Tanthalas – by Larry Elmore

One of the intangibles of gaming is the concept of leadership. It can be a strong leader-type character or role, but it can also be important away from the table… in the gaming group itself.


This week we talk about the importance of leadership in tabletop roleplaying games.

Distractions – Archon 35 Bonus Ep1

Archon 35: We Came, We Saw... Mark Busted Ass

We had the pleasure of attending Archon 35. Archon is the St. Louis area’s annual science-fiction, fantasy,  anime and roleplaying game convention. In reality, it is just one giant party.


We were given tables in the main entry hall and allowed to record our interactions with the con-goers.


This is the first installment of a two-part recording session. In this episode we attempt to stay topical, but as you will hear it was not easy.
