Synopsis: Over the last year, Shaun has become a fan of vtubers, a new type of performer on streaming services like Twitch and Youtube.

Many vtubers have gotten into tabletop RPGs, Many vtubers are Japanese and their RPG habits are quite different. This article from Dicebreaker helps explain.

The first full Delta Green campaign, Impossible Landscapes, is finally out. I’ve long awaited this book, as I have been fascinated with Carcosa and surreal horror since I first read Night Floors years ago. I caught up with Dennis Detwiller and Shane Ivey of Arc Dream Publishing to learn more about the book.  Read the essay that began it all, the Road to Hali.

Caleb also joined us to talk about his new project, Dead Channel, an upcoming Patreon focused on Delta Green products.

News: RPPR episodes are going to be a bit slower because I want to ensure quality episodes.
