Sex in RPGs – Ep104

Two deviously hot chicks, booze and a dagger… nope, nothing could go wrong here!
Two deviously hot chicks, booze and a dagger… nope, nothing could go wrong here!

“Be fair, alright. Everyone wants Mr. Toad’s wild ride.” No truer words were ever uttered in modern culture. Being one of the greatest motivators in human history, is sex given fair treatment in RPGs?

Is it skewed because of the historical demographic of the roleplaying gamer or simply a product of the fantasy/ sci-fi tropes that inspired many of the early RPGs? Is the increase of females playing the game changing that perspective?

We weigh in with our take on it.

Variety vs. Longevity – Ep52

The Sheer Number of Sources Can Be Daunting

Does the amount of choices in modern table-top roleplaying games make playing them for the long term more of a chore than an enjoyment? Are we too OCD to last a campaign or game out?

 

Dan springs this question on us and we do our best to answer it.
