Summary: Boulder City, Nevada is a small town with a lot of big ideas.  The Department of Advanced Research into Teleportation runs one of the most advanced facilities for scientific research in the world.  The four kids growing up there know that it’s just home. There are always stories about odd things going on out there in the desert, but it’s 1982 so most parents don’t really consider the world a dangerous place and kids stay out with their friends until the streetlights come on.  Let’s see what mystery finds them and how they deal with the pressure of growing up and experiencing the weird at the same time.

Eight years ago today, we released our first episode of Happy Jacks RPG Podcast. We didn’t realize this at the time of recording, but in celebration, I’ve included our original, crappy artwork for the show both here and attached to the .mp3 file. According to my FTP list, we’ve published 380 episodes (though it’s probably more like 375). We’d like to raise a glass to our listeners old and new. You’ve listened, you’ve critiqued, you’ve contributed and you’ve sat through more Human Centipede references than I can count. Thank you for your patronage, support and feedback.

In this episode:

Out of print GM asks: Running a villain game for kids? Mr Manowar writes in about our divisive hobby. Abacus from Missouri writes in about Hit point Fudging. And David from Florida sends us a GM success story.
