Show Notes:

  • 01:00 - D&D beyond

  • 13:20 - Quote of the Episode: "The moral duty of the GM is to purchase all of the content and run the game and put as much effort in for as little a reward as possible, the GM is there to bankroll the fun of everyone else."
  • 15:34 - For our non-Irish listeners, Clerys was a large Irish department store. Before closing it was split into two companies, one with all the assets (~ €29 million) and a second which ran the day to day business and assumed all debts. The second company then closed leaving workers and supplier unpaid while the assets were out of reach.
