This month, Roger and Mike consider some more fantasy gaming tropes: the lawful good but still feudal kingdom, and the vast disparities of power found among people in fantastic societies.
We mentioned the Peasants’ Revolt, A Distant Mirror, Savonarola, the Deryne novels, The Curse of Chalion, Anthem (Ayn Rand novella), the D’Shai series, Cthulhu Confidential and the World Science Fiction Convention in Dublin.
“Quantity has a quality all its own” appears to have originated with Thomas A. Callahan Jr in 1979.
We have a tip jar (please tell us how you’d like to be acknowledged on the show).
