1:03:22. Thomas Brophy. (@TheThomasBrophy) Pip pip gents! Scott, what do you think is a misconception about the US from Brits and Andy, how can we fix it?




Congratulations to Hawke Robinson on the purchase of his RPG Research trailer.

1:18:28. Rob MacLennan. Scott, has there been anything dietary that has resulted in a bit of culture shock? Any foods you're missing? Andy, why would you dress Tobin in red? He's clearly a gold.

1:53:24. James Peters (@KomaruKirinashi). The Rugby protection bit is an accurate description of everything that is wrong with medieval armored combat these days. Thanks!

1:54:07.Rob MacLennan. Apart from "JourneyQuest" are there any projects the two of you are working on, together, from the opposite sides of the Globe? Are there any applications (file sharing, etc.) which you find helpful for that sort of thing?

1:10:04. Hawke Robinson. Did you know about the RPGs in prison banned?

1:24:06. Rob MacLennan. Burroughs, Wells, Huxley, Verne, Shelly..... If you have one, what is your favourite olde-timey Sci-Fi story? Say, up to the 1950s.

1:29:09. Scott C. Brown. Favorite black/white movie monster.

1:33:33. Jenifer Gillis Rifenbery. Favorite TV show with monsters.

1:43:13.
James Peters. What are you favorite cocktails? Do either of you have any experience with, or interest in quadcopter "drones" or similar?

1:54:36. Rob MacLennan. So a big Hollywood studio taps you to make a big budget movie. $100M+. There's just one catch; it's got to be a (blech!) remake of some mush beloved property from years gone by. So what do you do? Make a piece that's honest to the source? Update it for a modern market? Zoolander the crap out of that puppy? Something else?

22:38. Jay Blanken. Leo's existence not included, what's the worst/most pathetic way you've had an RPG character die?
+ Paranoia RPG Session (Part 1 | Part 2)

+ Episode 136, around the 55m51s mark.

25:05. Rob MacLennan. Is there one item, that would really serve no purpose in your life, that you'd like to own? Something that you would just like to have, for the having of it? To be able to say to people, when walking them through your home, "And this is my [fill in the blank]" so that you could see the blank or confused look on their faces?

27:04. Paula Moran. Sorry, I did mean play by post through e-mail or social boards. What's the funniest or strangest character name you've ever personally had or encountered?

31:24. James Peters. Read Full Comment. Have you folks noticed the same thing, and if so, what do you feel about this need to have all fictional elements follow real-world rules and be explained to the point of mundanity?
