* (2:42) New roleplayers and their lack of baggage. How they can offer wonderful surprises and GMing difficulty all at once.
* (16:10) Have we over-complicated gaming for ourselves? Why it’s sometimes tempting to look back at simpler days, and whether it’s possible to actually go back.
* (25:20) The common reasons people leave the hobby. Separating the good reasons from the bad ones, and offering some encouragement to people that want to keep roleplaying but are struggling to make it work in their life.
