Episode 475: Romance or Blasphemy

December 10th, 2021 | Robin

Hey look it’s another all-request episode!

Beloved Patreon backer Kieron Gillen opens the Gaming Hut, which we hope isn’t a portal into a hellish otherrealm, to ask how designers screen out their skill as GMs during in-house playtests.

Erudite backer Bruce Miller infiltrates the Book Hut to ask about Richard Marsh’s The Beetle, a horror novel that for twenty years out-sold Dracula.

In Ask Ken and Robin, estimable backer Martin Rundkvist asks how Robin, and by extension Ken, goes about choosing projects.

Finally sagacious backer Paul Douglas poses a question that can only fit in the paranoid space that is the Conspiracy Corner: was Lenin a mushroom?
