WWPD News From the Front

Episode 7 of Outpost 309 is The Roleplaying Games Episode!  Jared brings his longtime friend and game master Alex on board, and the guys delve into the various types of RPGs.  After this fascinating look at RPG basics, the guys talk about the social acceptability of said games, and conclude that there truly is something for everyone here.  The guys review Fruitirelli for the kids, and have many video game shenanigans to share (especially interesting if you've heard of a thing called Titanfall).

 
Much thanks to listener and squadmate Sam for writing the intro!

Judson, Dano, and their special guests from the LRDG have a big announcement to make, and talk big things for the future. Later on, things get rowdy as the Boys of Bolt Action talk about Cancon and a certain, recent, hot button forum topic. While every attempt was made to reign in the language, please be warned that an occasional bit of vulgarity sneaks its way into the normally civilized discourse you've come to expect at The BAR. Listener discretion is advised!
