Dead Worlds – Ep53

Telling a gamer that they play in a dead world is like telling these guys disco is dead.

Dungeons and Dragons seems to be the game of lost lands. Meaning that there are worlds that were once very popular but have been abandoned by the people that own the rights to them. Are these worlds really dead? If not, what constitutes a dead world in roleplaying?


We talk about our take on this and some of the game worlds that we’ve played or wished we played that have may or may not have died.

Maps – Ep38


by Donato Giancola

Like the red-headed stepchild, maps are usually underappreciated and overlooked by gamers. We were apprehensive (at first) about the subject carrying an entire show, but once we dug into it we realized how much maps influence and enhance the gaming experience.


A map can be the difference between a good gaming experience and a great one.
