Minions   Ep153

Minions!!

We’ve noticed that in a lot of current RPGs there have been rules in place that downgrade one group of enemies so that they aren’t much of a threat individually, but in a large group can be quite tough. Those are the minions. Are they the key to “cinematic” combat or just a gimmick?

Taking a Break   Ep152

Sometimes you need to step away from things, like Lazlo.

Sometimes taking a break from a long running game or even a hiatus from a game group can recharge the batteries and make the next game you play more enjoyable.
