Show Notes! Jonas Larsson asked us for advice to get out of the GMing midset so he will be a good player. Nerdarchist Ryan has some comments on DnD5E and asks about Dungeon World hate. Kurt sends us a message on the first anniversary of him becoming a listener. He also mentions his GM once using a different game to resolve a mass combat in a DnD game. He used Castle Panic.

Matt asks if he was too railroady in a recent game. And Corbin Twa treats us to a horror story that happened in Seventh Sea.

Happy Jacks Live Stream

I’ve been very remiss publicizing the fact that we stream the show live as we’re recording it, so this is my attempt to remedy that.

For your information, our show recording time has moved to Saturday around 11am Pacific (1900 UTC).

I generally send out notifications 30 minutes or so before we start the stream. You can find these notifications on Twitter, our Facebook page  and our Facebook group. I also send out notifications about the current topic of discussion during the show.

You can hear and see the show as it’s recording in a Google hangout. This video is embedded on our live page at happyjacks.org/live. Also on this page is a chat client, so you can chat will fellow listeners while watching or listening to the show.

I try to monitor the chat room during the show (and several  hosts take on this responsibility when they are on as well), as often the listeners often contribute to the discussion.

If you like to hear the show live and chat with us while we’re recording, join us!
