Hosts: Megan, Meg, Todd
This week, we have guest host Meg Baker, game designer and mastermind behind Night Sky Games, to talk about the similarities and differences between role-playing and storytelling. Are they two different things? Are they two sides of the same coin? Should designers be doing more to push one or the other in their game? These questions and more will be pondered.
Quick note: we do the cast via G+ hangouts now, and Meg’s connection was a little tenuous so she’s sometimes a tiny bit warbly sounding, or we have trouble hearing her. You probably won’t notice too much, but just a heads up. Not her fault- just an internet connection thing.
6:45- What did we play?
