And now I wish I had checked the comments before recording the special edition I just posted.

I'll be sure to mention these on the New Years show, if not sooner. Thanks, guys!

What, no luck finding Holiday Themed RPGs? How about A Kringle in Time by S. John Ross for the Risus RPG? There was also an old Fudge/Gatecrasher semi-freebie called "Santa's Secret", it's at RPGNow, and the Grey Ghost site has this to say about it: "In late 1998, we released Santa's Secret, a 24-page Fudge / Gatecrasher / Christmas adventure with pre-generated characters and All the Rules You Need to Know." Maybe they don't jump out at you (Well, Kringle might if you met it in a dark alley), but there're out there. Or were you looking for an RPG that was ONLY Holiday themed?

Good morning -

Enjoyed the show! Keep up the great work.

In regards to Barnes and Noble offering "DND Classes". I think you guys were a bit hard on them. Consider the fact that they are bringing Role Play Gaming to the masses. Any outlet that promotes gaming this way is a GOOD thing. Kudos to them, I say! May they create many new gamers.
