Boosting the signal on my earlier post -- what Actual Play RPG setting would you most like to see in an upcoming podcast I'm considering? (Thanks for your vote if you voted already!) :-)
If I started an Actual Play RPG podcast, which setting and system below would you most like to hear? (I'm focused on in-print RPG games for popular, licensed IPs). I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Challenge: Write a Sci Fi adventure using seven or fewer words. Here's mine: "Amnesiacs wake to fight planetoid's tentacled scientists". I'll compile and repost them as a PDF document for everyone to share :-)

Inkwell Ideas always puts out amazing products. Check out their Kickstarter for 5e Magic Item cards! Very cool stuff.

What advice do you have for characters advancement in long-running campaigns? I'm thinking about a potential long-running campaign in my home group which might run 40-60 sessions. I've heard some people say that after 20 or so sessions your characters are getting too powerful and the dice pools are getting overly big. I've no idea if that's true. Based on your experience (or based on your knowledge of the math) is there anything you'd recommend I do to slow down the character advancement or otherwise throttle the 'leveling' so that after 40 sessions the characters still isn't super-overpowered or unwieldy?

A friend of mine is raising money to purchase a braille embossing printer to create gaming materials for the visually impaired community. Check it out and consider supporting this! I will be getting involved and we hope to eventually have Braille versions of some of my RPG products. We appreciate your support!
