Feature: Modern20: A Review

Why did Chuck Rice write Modern20? To make a pantload of money, of course!

Inspiration Time

The Shield: Season 5 and Season 6: An ambitious, mentally unstable IAD officer is after Vic in Season 5 and the death of a member of the Strike Team turns them against each other in Season 6. Some of the best TV ever and easily one of the 5 best cop shows of all time.

The Losers: Comic book from Vertigo/DC Thanks to BrianK on the boards for mentioning this back in the discussion on Episode 26: Finding Inspiration.

4. The Hook
Undercover: The PCs are cops tasked with infiltrating a dangerous criminal organization. How can they work their way up the ladder while maintaining their integrity? Ordinary complications, like family problems, can play a big part in a campaign like this, since the PCs will have the added complication of a secret identity--trying to keep their assignment and their home life separate.

5. Podcast News
A. The Material World looks at Tunguska
On the 30th June 1908, a huge fireball hurtled towards the Tunguska River region of Siberia. The explosion that followed was as powerful as 1000 Hiroshima bombs and knocked down an estimated 80 million trees. But 100 years later scientists are yet to find an impact crater or tell-tale meteorite remains. So what happened?

The Material World is a BBC Radio podcast. In this episode, Host Quentin Cooper is joined by Dr Phil Bland and Gareth Collins from Imperial College London to find out. You can learn more at the website.

B. Brilliant Gameologists
In their own words, Brilliant Gameologists is a podcast about tabletop games and the people who play them. Helping you play like you have to, play like you have to and play like you have two.

For my two cents, the BGs are fun and enjoy using language that is less than family friendly, like some other podcast I know . . . and possibly participate in. They understand LARPing is all about hitting on hot gamer chicks and has no other value. Me like.
