B. The Secret Lair: not so secret
Chris and KJ who were two of the regular hosts on the late Roundtable podcast from the House of the Harping Monkey are back with the Secret Lair. These two villains crouch like spiders in their lair, waiting for the unwary. Ken Newquist, he of Nuketown Radio Active, has been captured and interrogated in episode 6. None can say who might be next. Perhaps you!
C. The Game That May Be: Mick just couldn't
And the final piece in the Roundtable podcast puzzle has broken cover. Mick Bradley is soloing in the podosphere with The Game That May Be. In Mick's own words: What kind of roleplayer do I want to be? What kinds of games do I want to play, how do I want to play them, and who do I want to play them with? What tools are available to help me figure all that out, and to help me get where I want to go? Exploring the answers to those questions is what this site is about. It's my ongoing chronicle of my roleplaying life. Here's where I ponder, wonder, dream, wrestle, steal, and share. If you're interested, come along.
