Synopsis: We recently posted the conclusion to the Atomic Robo campaign and as our custom, we have a post-mortem to discuss what went right and what went wrong. The players and GM had varying levels of knowledge about the setting, which posed unique challenges for Aaron. We talk about what we liked about the game and what could have changed and what we would do differently next time. If you missed some episodes of the campaign, visit its page for a list of links to all the episodes.

He created the Strange FATE system used by Kerberos Club and Base Raiders and his latest project, the Atomic Robo RPG, will hopefully be completed soon. We talked about the state of the FATE system and game design.
