Former RPPR regular Cody Walker has his own Kickstarter up for Noir City, a comic book. Check it out!

The RPPR crew is just terrible at Artemis Spaceship Simulator. Watch!

Synopsis: The newest RPPR Project, Base Raiders, is about dungeon crawling in a world of superheroes. But many players find that type of game boring. Dungeons are usually thought of as endless stone corridors, populated with traps and monsters but a dungeon can be so much more. You can use them in practically any genre, even modern ones. Tom and I discuss how modern ruins and abandoned places can be made into exciting dungeons for your games and what makes an evocative dungeon versus a boring one. We even design a modern dungeon on the fly for your use. Hopefully this episode will give you a new perspective on dungeons.

Tom has a letter of course, and I talk about my experiences playtesting the new Dungeons and Dragons system.

    Oh, the sweet barbecue of my hometown.
    Well– off the city closest to my hometown, anyway.

    Also: you didn’t put a link to the Artemis video here, you monster.

    Also, also: are you going to post our less-than-finest hours in the other Artemis missions as well?

    I updated the show notes with the link to the Artemis video.

    I can post another of the Artemis missions if I get sufficient feedback. What say you, the fans?

    To justify the whole building a big sophisticated tomb for one guy, The pyramids of Giza? Did they not supposedly take years or decade to build post-mortem of the king?

    Just heard that part of the episode from Tom and thought I should throw that out there.

    Yes, very yes to more Artemis! Also where can we go to sample these fine 19th place sausages! I love hot links and sausages!
