* (0:29) September 15th is the deadline for Tracy Hickman’s Dragon’s Bard offer. If you want to join in, be sure to get the discount code here and enter it here. As mentioned in the show, alternate pricing options can be found here. We also talk a bit about why the interview took us all a little by surprise.
* (4:37) Our community has started an Alliance guild on the Argent Dawn server of World of Warcraft. Details can be found on the forum.
* (5:39) Pondering RP in an MMO. Maybe it’s a bad idea, or maybe we just don’t know how to approach it.
* (11:25) Homebrews and house rules. Why we love making homebrews, the role of house rules, and finding the line between the two. A challenge to write your own homebrew if you never have before. And yes, the Midna group is real.
* (30:05) Using group collaboration to design character, setting, and even a rules system. We discuss the pros and cons, offer some approaches for trying this out, and debate whether this is a good idea for various styles of GMing. Just how hard should someone be willing to work to improve a hobby?
