And now that I\'ve listened to most of this episode on the way home from work, I know that RSE was one of the reasons the topic came up.
Oh well, I\'m glad it\'s getting noticed out there.

There actually was a Cheetos game, starring Chester Cheetah. My brother and I had it for the Sega Genesis.

I liked one of the forum posters thoughts on this: Imagine going to the jon, and instead of the rolls of TP, you see a stack of PHBs.

Would guess that glossy paper might give you some trouble. I would think those old Judges Guild adventures (Written on newspaper-like paper) would be more comfortable, though any books on \"The Underdark\" would surely be appropriate!!

I\'m new to the podcast, and I\'m currently working my way through older ones. I\'m on ep 23 right now.

I wanted to make a mention here on a current topic though. There\'s a listing for settings without a specific game system. I don\'t know if this is what you were referring to, but I like this new setting that\'s been on the market for a couple of months now. Rocketship Empires 1936.

It has suggestions on how some rules can be applied, but it\'s a system-free campaign setting.

Just thought I\'d toss that out there.

Love your podcast guys. I am lucky enough to be allowed to listen to my I-pod at work in the office (Only in one ear though, as still have to keep an ear out for the phones!) and look forward to listening to your debates in the afternoons.
I was interested to hear about White Wolf\\\'s Graduate your game scheme. Not sure if they are trying to bribe in new players to Exhalted though, or empty their warehouse of it.
I too agree that the world is good, but the system is a mess (Even from character generation).
What I am wondering is what is happening to all the D&D books being sent in?

1. They are being given to White Wolf staff as incentives, for use as mouse pads, door stops or fly swats.

2. They are being sold to third world countries as emergency shelters for very tiny people (Just open at the spell section to complete your hardback pup tent!)

3. They are being used to cap off a large landfill site, as a foundation for a new interstate.

4. They are being piled into a giant ziggurat, to be topped with a giant White Wolf statue, so that all may worship it from afar!

What do you think??
