Oh Lord of the Rings... damn credit hog. Read some Moorcock you philistines!

If you think Fighting Fantasy are bad, try the Tunnels and Trolls solo-play adventures where you\'re a Goblin... ouch.

You haven\'t seen Mad Max????

Good podcast. Nice idea. Have you done anything on Pick-Up RPGs (Spirit of the Century, InSpectres, etc.)?

We\'ve brought up a few but haven\'t devoted a full episode to indy rpgs.

Back in Feb we talked about Dogs in the Vineyard (ish) and Serial Homicide unit in this episode: http://theadventuringparty.libsyn.com/index.php?post_id=432250

We also brought up some indy rpgs in our discussion on character creation;

Perhaps it is time to have a full show devoted to our favs. I\'ll talk it over with the guys, thanks for the feedback :)
