Hey you two! Great news on your show, all around. I am personally glad that Fantasy Flight Games got the bid on Warhammer because I butted heads with Green Ronin the one time I ordered directly from them (never again!).

I hate to be the black sheep here, but with The Burning Wheel and Warhammer around, I just do not see why I should be excited by D&D 4th. Of course I guess it is because gaming is a hobby to me and not a life style.

I think you guys need to talk about that board game “Last Night on Earth!”

Thanks for the show and cheers!

I don’t mind the guest hosts but it is good to have the dynamic duo back together.

That SotC Shadowrun game…

I was the “face-man” and it was not my proudest moment.
I hated my (lack of) performance at the table.

In fact, I started a thread about my experience on RPG.net.

Since the Shadowrun game was a game about revenge, I wonder how well that would work with the optional rules of Concrete Angels for Dust Devils?

Next time we just kill the town steward, first thing, they’re always up to no good.

Oh poor baby, you had to fill in the blanks and give us some backstory. ;P I had a lot of fun with that game. My theory is that as players we may have been a tad unsure with the world (I’m still vague about Shadowrun and don’t know all the major players in the world) and weren’t able to bring up any names. Also we may have just been unwilling to start making in-game enemies with people across the table. I will try to do more finger-pointing in the future.

The boyfriend’s name is Nick. But he is the boyfriend no more.
