by Dan Repperger

* (1:05) Dan blames Chris for the burpee.  Jackie Joyner-Kersee and fartleks.

* (6:38) Boots the Pegasus t-shirt orders.

* (7:38) Signup for Fear the Con 6 rolls on, and tickets are now available for purchase!

* (19:36) Why Pat should play Skyrim: naked mods.

* (21:09) Why cyberpunk isn’t as accessible as it used to be, and how Shadowrun bridges that by swapping out certain themes.

As a GM I tend to give subtle and not subtle warnings, occasionally someone says they do something and I blurt out “Seriously?”

I think there are some “DATED” games out there. IMHO Traveler comes to mind. But I don’t know why I consider this to be true… maybe its because its like the OLDEST sci-fi game I can think of. But at the same time… I don’t think of DnD in the same light, and I know that its actually older.
