Episode 343: I’m a Baron and Classy

May 10th, 2019 | Robin

Patreon backer Jacob Ansari collars us in the Gaming Hut to ask about running alternate history games.

The Tradecraft Hut looks at the February raid on Madrid’s North Korean embassy by the Free Joseon organization.

In Ken and/or Robin Talk to Someone Else we chat with Mark Morrison, stalwart Call of Cthulhu contributor and the mind behind Campaign Coins, wresting from him the secrets of convention GMing. Warning, parents: Includes a few swears.

Then we head to the History Hut for a look at Baron Franz Nopcsa, openly gay aristocrat, spy, geologist, paleontologist and aspiring King of Albania.

    Would the esteemed podcasters care to discuss possible game uses for Damien Hirst’s Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable?
