Episode 65 - Stormy Weather

It’s a solemn week for the team as they dive into all the controversies surrounding comments made by well loved designers. We spent a bit longer on this than we normally would, but we felt it deserved the coverage. 

Over the rest of the cast we update you on Dragonlance, looking at counterfeit games, conventions moving again, and taking a long overdue trip to RPG Corner.
