Talking about Gaming the Irish Way!

Aug 14, 2019

Episode 553

This week's hosts: Liam, Séan and special guest Donogh McCarthy
This week the party sit down to talk about how to set expectations for your game with our very special guest Donogh McCarthy. Do you run your players through a session zero or send out a reading list to establish tone? What needs to be discussed beforehand and what do you save to spring on players during a campaign? Listen in to find out!  

Show notes:
The Bridge-Burners Vs The Black Company - Who would win? (My money is on Croaker and the boys)

Freaky westerns:

Bone Tomahawk


Both thoroughly excellent and under-appreciated. Do not watch before or after eating.
