Episode 33: Archetypal Rules

Hello friends. No Chloe today, she was called to a mountain top for some kind of combat and just couldn't make the recording session. Not to worry, we have our favorite substitute filling in. On today's episode nerdcasters Ron, Mike, Will, and special guest Barb talk about their favorite & least favorite character archetypes to play in a tabletop game. Later in the show they discuss how many rules are too many for a LARP. Special thank you to Chris B. and Kyle S. for those topics.
