This week, Morrus and Peter are joined by Ed Jowett of Shades of Vengeance to talk about science fiction roleplaying! The guys talk about Era: The Consortium, NEW, Paranoia, Traveller, Eclipse Phase, Star Trek, and others along with what makes sci-fi roleplaying different. In the news, information on the Relics & Rarities premier, Kickstarter’s ZineQuest promotion is in full swing, new miniatures from WizKids for Pathfinder and Dungeons & Dragons, hints about the new D&D book, and more! Plus Our Favorite Game in All the World, a new listener-submitted sketch, and a new review!
