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).

1P 118 - The Bloody Inn

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. I guarantee, the quality of this podcast of beyond compare. Now, as I was saying, listen to a tale woven of Arkham Horror the card game, while Julius interviews the lead designer Matt Newman. Afterwards, Albert and Julius review the Bloody Inn, with absolutely no comparison to this fine establishment.
