  1. Very glad you are back in the design seat!

  2. I’m not super good at improv but this looks like it would be a good entry point.

    Ross: I would totally play a search and rescue game. I was thinking of how great a S&R videogame would be a while ago.

  3. I haven’t listened yet, can you cure ligma in caleb’s new game?

  4. I do like Ross’s idea of having resurrection on the table, with consequences. It could allow things like “You’re a zombie now!” or “You’re a shrunken head, but alive!” or even “You’re a ghost bound to the medical ward!”

  5. Caleb’s waif is painfully funny, as per usual.
