Hey Folks. This week we hang out in the lobby getting caught up, then we head over to the Gameroom and talk about what we have been playing recently, and then we end the night in the Workshop where we put the spotlight on a different type of game balance.
Hey Folks. Today we’re lugging stuff around just to prove that we can, or at least that encumbrance might not be the dog of a rule everyone thinks it is. We also do that listener feedback thing and chat about the games we’ve been playing in the gameroom. Enjoy and feel free to leave us your feedback.
Hey Folks. We’re here at the house to chat with Captain Mappin who is suited up in his best TNG uniform, ready to tell us all about his very free Mass Effect RPG powered by Fate, and give us some inside stories from the olden days of the gaming industry. We also have our first part of our AMP Year One RPG review covering the setting of the game.
Hey Folks. This week Chris and Phil chat about The Improv Tool Kit and Creative Constraint while things are heating up with the yearly story as the villain makes their first appearance on the mics. Hope you enjoy and feel free to leave feedback. We always want to get better.

Happy All Hallows Eve my gaming friends. I hope your sweet tooth is satisfied this year be it by candy or costume and welcome to the 2012 Halloween edition of Misdirected Mark. So sink your fangs into this one as we discuss horror gaming for the holiday and say hi to Samhain if you see him. Also watch out for sparkling vampires. If you see them KOS with extreme prejudice.
