We don’t give life advice. No, seriously. We don’t. So, this episode is clearly not about giving life advice. Therefore, it must be about Video Games, Tabletop Games, and assorted other things that IN NO WAY relate to practical life advice.
PLEASE NOTE: We refer to the first person perspective quite a lot in this discussion. This is, of course, patently absurd as we clearly mean the second person perspective. Please adjust accordingly.
How will The Fifth Season fare when compared to our last book? Has Brian found another winner, or is it just typical genre writing with nothing interesting to offer? And has Leslie been put off reading forever?
The designers of D&D 4e were upfront about saying the edition was inspired by World of Warcraft. Problem is, they were wrong. Brian explains the whys and wherefores to Scott. With mixed success. Plus, there’s Harry Potter talk, postcard talk, video games of other sorts, and more to get you through the long Thanksgiving afternoon.
Brian has questions. Very important question. Scott went to Gamehole Con and can’t wait to tell you all about it. Plus, video games, Pathfinder 2 Playtests, and a very dangerous line of thought regarding Dungeons and Dragons.
Scott talks books. Brian talks SHUX. The gaming community discussion continues. Your questions, answered. That’s what we do around here.
Well, that was certainly a book which we all read. No doubt about it. Touted as one of the finest fantasy novels/series of the last 20 years, one can only wonder what we thought of it after having read the whole thing.
What can we say? It was early in the morning when we recorded. At least we got to talk about the most horrific show Scott has ever seen, Brian’s PS4 problems, and a bit about designing for popularity.
Scott goes overboard in space, Brian can’t find his destiny, listeners have difficult to answer questions, and we’d really like to know what we owe the community. If there even is one.
Leslie and Brian sit down and recap / review Doctor Who: The Pirate Planet by James Goss.
Who monitors the monitors? Is Scott too elite, or just too dangerous? A couple of listener questions and a couple of questions for listeners round things out. And some watery cracks.
