    i have to say. rpg is art, from books to covers to interior to the story that is produced

    • http://diceofdoom.com RupertG

      I think it is fair to say that some games are art. For example, I think Mouse Guard works better as art than an RPG. Some aspects of RPGs are certainly very artistic. As you say, covers and interior illustrations for example. As a catch all, I’m not as sure.

      I am still working on the post for it – should be out Monday next week. There are a couple on our Facebook Page for the time being.

    I was surprised and pleased to see a new podcast show up in my Podcast app. Good job. I’ve listened to it twice. I also think you have the best intro music I’ve heard on an RPG podcast.

      Thank you – I write all the music for the show myself 😀 You can find it on most music services (including Spotify) under Rupert Goes Shopping if you’re interested.

    Hi Rupert,

    Great podcast again, guys. It is wonderful to have you back.

    The dysfunctional group, or rather a disruptive Player, seems to be all too common. We suffered that phenomenon in our game, although I am sure that each side has separate views as to who was being the Dick.

    See Betrayal in the Throne Room? http://talesofagm.com/?p=303

    As a consequence, I then drew up a Social Contract and discussed it in detail with the surviving Players in my smaller campaign.

    Looking forward to the next episode

      Very interesting list of rules for the gaming table. We’re looking at creating a universal list that encourages good sportsmanship and fun. Thank you for the input.

    Just so glad that you folks are podcasting again. You were very sorely missed.
