Learn Tabletop RPGs

In lieu of all of our talking about the fictional or semi-fictional people who are seeking out RPG knowledge, this week we bring to you Learn Tabletop RPGS and I argue with Micah that these people do exist!

D&D’s Exact Birthday Still A Mystery

There’s a good article up over at Playing At The World about the exact date of D&D’s release some 40 years ago, it’s a shame the jury is still out on when that day was. As it stands, it looks like we’ve collectively declared it to be the last Sunday in January. The origin story of D&D is…like many other gaming stories…kind of boring, so we’ve got a contest for you! Listen to the show for the details!

Mini-Contest Details: In the comments below, tell us in about a paragraph or less what you’d like the real origin story of D&D to have been. Go nuts! We’ll recite your story during a future podcast and also toss you some free Ascendant time and an Obsidian Portal T-shirt!

M:TG Movie In The Works

Yes, a Magic: The Gathering film is being created. First learned here and later confirmed by WotC we now know the very first trickles of info regarding the movie. Micah and I discuss gaming related films and he puts me on the spot and demands my opinion/predictions on the film along with what I would need it to be “Magic: The Gathering” on screen.


@Forbestay asks: being a gamer I’m a bit over weight. How can I incorporate health lifestyle choice with my gaming activities?
