This week's podcast is based all on the roll of a die! Not really, but most of it is spent dicussing a seminal topic: Role-Playing Games.
Week in Geek: Andrew creates cards for a prototype card game while Dan irresponsibly purchases classic Doctor Who (out of vanity).
The Forgotten Fantasy: To kick off the dicussion of RPGs, Dan and Andrew talk about the least-talked-about entry in the Final Fantasy franchise, Final Fantasy II (not IV).
Evolution of RPGS: Tabletop RPGs, Video Game RPGS, how they influenced and diverged from each other––an epic overview that covers what you know and more.
LOST: Talking about a tv show on an RPG episode? Andrew connects the dots (but leaves many more unconnected) in this segment.
Question of the Geek:
What is a memorable moment from either a tabletop or video game RPG that hit hard with you and would like to share?
