With Mark Kinney, Carol, and Mags. Carol's group was selected for the Dresden Lives! Playtest. Carol talks about Sentinels of the Multiverse! Delayed and vaporware games. Inspired by Quantum (and yes, there is a bit of Kickstarter talk here, accordingly). Transparency about delays (noting Robotech RPG Tactics and Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls). Also mentioning Ogre (which came late) and Powerchords (which is still coming...) Guardians of Order and the Tri-Stat Song of Ice and Fire RPG. And more delayed games that saw release, as well as the ones that never did. It's not always the pulisher's fault! Wisdom of the Gamers: Always New Experiences. Requests for the video review show? And will the video show even happen? Mark needs new microphone cables. 9 years of podcasting! Is Mark having a stroke, or merely trying to imitate a party favor? One last reviewer shout out.
