1p 121 - Odin Games (A Feast For Odin)

Julius and Albert return from adventures in Norse mythology to talk about a highly thematic game. Well, they talk about A Feast For Odin, at least, and spend some time talking with Chris about Odin Quest. The mere mention of highly thematic games leads Albert down the dungeon hole of Card Rogue. And Albert and Julius talk about starting an audience participation survey (with more information on this topic to return next time).

1P 120 - The Plant

Wow folks.. did you expect another episode so quickly?  I didnt but I messed up 119.  I figured I should record something short to let listeners know the fixed #119 was back.  Well, why not turn it into an episode!

This episode only covers the RPG game, The Plant by by Jason Morningstar of Bully Pulpit Games.  He's designed many other acclaimed RPGs such as The shaba-Al-Hiri Roach, Fiasco, Night Witches and others.  The Plant is a grim RPG designed for exactly one player.  It is a very well implemented game that will leave a player full of emotions.  It's a fantasstic game, but not for the faint of heart (that means me).

Welcome, guests. Come in, come in, for an exciting tale about our rustic inn. Be not concerned by the red flecks on the couch; those are merely some minor rust stains.
