I got episode 11 when I downloaded this ep. It also plays ep. 11 when clicked. It might just be my browser, but I’m not sure.
Yours,
Sam

Whoops! That’s my bad, Sam – I liked to the wrong file. Sorry about that all.

The link’s been corrected, and the real Episode 12 is now available!

Beware the power of the quantum, it will gigaflop you over its shoulder. Seriously though, after our session I was really happy with the SotC rules set. I think it allows alot of leeway to let players do most things crazy which I feel fits pulp really well. I’m not sure how well the rules would suit a gritty environment though I intend to find out.
I also really like how aspects and fate points key the GM on what’s important to players/characters.
For instance, you understood immediatly that the players wanted a blimp explosion upon a player’s narative swap of helium for hydrogen.
Even in your self proclaimed “off-days” you run a really fun session.
Thanks!
Sam
ps: I’m really digging this entire “say yes to players” mantra. I’ve been bringing it to my home campaign for the last couple of months and it’s turned what used to be a more confrontational rules opposition game to a more light-hearted and fun game where players feel enabled (although still fear the reaper…. as it is DnD).

Yeah Brian, can I sign up for an entire campaign made up of your “off-days”?
