We kick it off by introducing our guest hosts Brian Patterson of d20Monkey and Randall Walker of the Dungeon Masters Round Table. Obsidian Portal is sponsoring the DMRT panel at gencon this year so be sure to stop on by!


Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan 4e Conversion

The old tournament module The Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan is getting a 4e conversion similar to what WotC previously did with The Tomb of Horrors. We talk about these conversions, the exclusivity involved in obtaining this particular one and deadly dungeon delving.

Killing Characters

A recent article on Critial-Hits discusses character death and the implications behind it. We talk character death in RPGs and whether it’s merely a play style component or a very critical core element to an RPG experience. We talk new school/old school and more.

Road to Gencon Blog

A guy by the name of James Payne aka @Gencon4James on twitter, has a blog dedicated to all things gencon. He highlights all of the must visit places in Indy – pubs, restaurants and other hot spots as well as gives a really good low down on what the city of Indianapolis itself is like. We discuss his blog and give out our best tips for geoncon-goers whether it’s your first year or your 20th.

Sorry no twitter question this week, it will return as normal in the next episode.
