Show Notes! Clanhanna asked us to plug his band’s show. They’re Sportive Tricks, they perform at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire and they’re awesome. Their show is Friday, May 24th at Molly Malone’s. You can purchase their CD — a song from which should be at the end of this episode if I remembered to do so — at CDBaby.com or iTunes.

HosierRob squeaks in with a question about keeping role-playing in combat. Which we discuss at length. Jeb from Postcards from the Dungeon sends us a report of Fear the Con. Shoe writes in to ask about creating balanced encounters in games other than DnD. Dave asks how long an epic style campaign should be.

Len from Miami chimes in about GM Rules Morons (the opposite of Rules Lawyers). Eric from New Jersey asks us about resparking the creativity candle. And finally, Stephen from Postcards from the Dungeon writes in about the phrase, “the camel’s nose in the tent,” and changing and adapting such analogies and phrases in a fantasy game.
