AGC 61 September 22 2007 (Outside the Mainstream/Realmsaga) (1:03:30)

With Mark Kinney, Chris Heim, and Carol. A little bit of a roleplaying-heavy episode again, jumping right into the subject matter. Even with gaming as a whole not quite in the mainstream, a few subsections stand out. Little academic interest in the effect of digital publication on the industry. The Indie Scene, and Carol's GenCon demos. Fae Noir. Mortal Coil. Reign. Carol's "Want To Try" List. Best Friends. Steal Away Jordan. Mark throws in a mention of The Shab-Al-Hiri Roach. Carol interviews Logan Johnson of Battle Board Games about the upcoming Realmsaga. Carol announces an upcoming new podcast!

Big thanks to NeonCon 2007!
