    Yeah Dan, it was great meeting you! RPPR and MU podcast should do something together sometime.

  6. Hey guys, it was great getting to meet you at the con! A big thank you for the shout out to Fistful of Misanthropes, Caleb! I know both my friend Richard, who you met, and I really appreciate it and we’re honored you like our actual play of your scenario as much as you did. Ross, thanks for running Operation: Eyes Down for us, it was a blast despite our severely lacking OpSec and my character’s archaeological intrigue getting the better of her! Thanks again and hope to see you all next year!

  7. Ross, Kevin from Canada thanks for the shout out. Operation Eyes Down was great. It was the best game of the dozen I played at the Con

  8. Ross Payton! I trusted you! have listened to all of Welcome to NIght Vale in the last few days because of YOU and its status as queer lit can’t absolve it of the weather breaking the tone nine eps out of ten and the general SO RANDOM nerd humor feel. but I’ll keep listening to it, because unhhh.

    Well, I am a horrible monster. But, sadly, Crawlkill, my endorsement of Night Vale is not unique to me. Tom, Aaron, AND Caleb all enjoyed it as well. I guess we will have to chalk it up to different strokes for different folk.

  10. I went through and Audacity’d out most of the disruptive weathers and it made it a lot more listenable fr me

  11. I am some dude. And i know all of your voices.

  12. The steampunk Ghostbuster Stay Puft marshamallow man that Aaron mentioned used to work with a friend of mine. It really is a small world.

    I’d love to hear an Eternal Lies RPPR game, but I suppose it’s reasonable to take it one massive globe-spanning Cthulhu game at a time.
