Episode 184 – RPGs and war-games

I want to thank Dave Dankel from Iron Agenda for taking my seat on the show this week and letting the guys record with his setup.  I desperately needed the time to work on Fear the Con stuff, and the free night helped out quite a bit.  If you’re at all interested in WarMachine, be sure to check out his show!

On a side note is the increasing number of Role Playing Games that have in depth mass combat rules. For example Exalted 2e has gone into the subject much more, has stats for mass combat in all appropriate books, has a book dedicated to the subject, and has a skill and powers to be used in such.
