The roundtable returns where they left off, with a recording from last year. The team tackles the question of mature subject matter in RPG, with some skirting around troubling content.

Talking Points:

  • Prelude – RIP Mac
  • Excrement occurs
  • Serious business
  • Murder is compulsory
  • Mental illness as a crutch/sanity meters
  • By what measure is a non-human
  • Stakes
  • Pacifism is cheap
  • Racism
  • Sexuality
  • Addiction
  • Loss

Next time: Friendship.

    This episode will make you tear up.
    This episode will make you think hard.
    This episode will make you giggle.

    Especially when you’re doing the first two and suddenly hear the line “She’s far better than that idiot Pascal” completely out of context.

    Welcome back!

    Loved listening to this – so I went back and listened to all the older episodes too. I know it won’t be the same without the ATB daddy – RIP – but I really hope you guys will find a way to carry on.
