Episode 79: Council of Guilds and Disgustingly Rich People


This month, Mike and Roger get into character, and look at the differences between Fantasyland and mediaeval Europe.

We mentioned: Tékumel at the Bundle of Holding (until 1 July), Hall of Blue Illumination, Paranoia 2016 at the Bundle of Holding, Mongoose Publishing (who now seem to be producing mostly Traveller stuff), Notes for a new Vampire game, Stuart MacBride’s Oldcastle novels, Whartson Hall, Przemysław Cypryański playing my Vampire character, Sufficiently Advanced, Farflung, Twenty Palaces by Harry Connolly, Ars Magica, The Time Traveller’s Guide to Mediaeval England, and Cthulhu Confidential.

It was, apparently, Armand Emmanuel de Plessis, Duc de Richlieu who said to his wife when he found her in bed with her lover: “Madame you must really be more careful. What if somebody else had found you like this?”

Here’s our tip jar.

(We do get free access to the Bundle of Holding contents, but this happens whether or not we plug them.)

I respectfully request that Mike doesn’t do TOO quiet a character voice in my Vampire game, unless he wants most of my GM utterances to be “What? Could you please repeat that?” :grinning:


Roughly twenty five minutes in and I’m starting to think that Roger is subtly running Michael through a Voight-Kampff test.


Did I pass?

(Turtles, turtles, turtles all the way down… But right side up so that doesn’t count.)


…sure. Sure, of course you did. Nothing to worry about here.

(sidles away nervously)


Oh good, a new one to listen to.


Mongoose are doing less of higher quality and price for Traveller, and just announced the Sea of Thieves RPG
The Traveller stuff is lovely but expensive.
It’s also their house game of choice so they grok it.


I am a valued listener again!
