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).
