Exciting news. If anyone fondly remembers Midway, IT'S BACK! Or at least will be if people pre-purchase their tickets on the groups fundraising campaign.

Mud! Rubber Swords! Airsoft guns! Dodgy accents! MORE MUD!

Hey guys. I hear the old country's having a rough time. Hope you can swim.
1) How are you getting on with Masks of Nyarlathotep? I am interested
in hearing about your academics' first meeting with Machete Steve (as
we dubbed him).
2) Inspired by the interesting debate in the 2015 retrospective:
"Pathfinder sucks. Any RPG that requires you to spend more time
reading the rules and planning your character's mechanical advancement
than actually playing is a poor one. Can the party disagree?"
(TAP has had a noticeable pro-Pathfinder bias for a long time, so I'm
glad you finally got some people on who don't love homework.)
(I feel like Shadowrun probably also sucks, but I've less experience with it.)
