In today’s discussion episode, we gnash our teeth over the growing trend of “homogenization” of once-great “Friendly Local Game Shops” (FLGS). By this we mean the trend of on-shelf RPG selections dwindling to scant pale shadows of their former glory, simultaneous with their previous varieties trimmed down to just 5E, Pathfinder, maybe Warhammer (if we’re lucky), and 50 variants of Kids on Bikes. In this era were Magic and 5E are the law of the land, we old-timers must find our glimmers of gaming goodness on the dark corners of the internet, such as this one.
After much listener requesting, we’re finally pushing into the next Rifts Dimension Book: Phase World! It’s Rifts taken to an even greater power level… and in SPACE! Give it a listen, then drop by our Discord and talk about your favorite Phase World adventures.
We’re back for another Character Jam, yay! This time we’re trying our hands at character creation in Modiphius’s “Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed of” RPG for their house 2d20 system. As always, these characters are awesome and we’d love to see them actually get some table time.
