With Mark Kinney, Carol, and Mags. Illness, Carol's class reunion, and d20 stats for nice shoes. Mark's adventure in the Other Media Fantasy Wrestling Draft, and fictional pursuits. Podcast appearances. Old School and the retroclone! What is Old School? Games You May Never Have Heard Of: Mutant Future! Mark reviews some products from Lamentations of the Flame Princess (No Dignity In Death: The Three Brides, People of Pembrooktonshire, and Death Frost Doom). Mags is creeped out by a conflation of horror inspirations. Retroclone games. Reminiscing on old school gaming experiences, and both original and clones. Wrapping up with the legal questions. Shooting FRED. Need some more Bounty Head Bebop entries. In the future, stuff is coming.

Thanks for mentioning MAZES & MINOTAURS on your Podcast !

But the link on your site is wrong : it leads to a site about the Talisman boardgame ! :)

Thanks for bringing up some of my old-old favorites; V&V, Runequest, Psi-World, Fantasy Trip. I still have most of an original 3 book set for Fantasy Trip. I even have my 1st edition Micro-Games copies of Wizard & Melee. Wow. I got those last two when I was 12.

For the nostalgia crowd does anyone remember:

Chivalry & Sorcery:

Thanks for another great show gang.
