In some ways, I think my favorite Longman moment is in this episode, towards the end. 

Seriously, though. Rob plays the Mortal like a fiddle. Creepy and passive aggressive is so in his RP wheelhouse.

They were designed by Topher Gerkey, I know that much. Joe had them. Not sure exactly where he got them from, though. My guess is they're pretty easy to find, as indicated above.

OKAY EVERYONE! GAMING HAIKUS TIME!

So +Tim Franzke had a post of games described in four words, which I thought was kind of fun. So I tried my hand at some, and then wrote some gaming haikus, as well. So now I'm turning the idea over to the people's of the internet. Write your own gaming haikus and post them here. Maybe we'll read some on a later episode!

Here were mine:

Misspent Youth
The man keeps you down.
Later? You will sell out. For
Now, who will stand up?

Monsterhearts
Everyone hates me.
Like they see inside my soul.
Who should I kill first?

Psi*Run
Amnesia. Confused.
Wasn't that crater a town?
What's with the SWAT team?

Vampire
Lights out, candles lit...
I bear my poetic soul...

New episode with +Meguey Baker of Night Sky Games! We talk about the similarities and differences between role-playing and storytelling. Is there a difference? Or is it all just the same basic stuff?

Yeah, Microscope is literally next on my list.

And feel free to keep muttering at us, preferably in the dark. Your muttering is delicious. Oh yes, it is.

Hey, all. Listener +Keenan Kibrick is looking for gamers to play with in North Los Angeles County near Ventura County. If you're into indie games (that's what he's looking to play), drop him a message on the google plusses.

Hi All, this is Timo.  We're having technical difficulties with the website, along the lines of "I forgot to do administrative stuff and now I cause an outage."  Please be patient with us until the site comes back up.  For those who want detail:  I forgot that I had left transferring the domain registration away from goDaddy until the end of the current registration to save on cash, and I'm doing it now, which takes 7-10 days apparently.

Timo again:  Turns out the transfer was much quicker than the timeline suggested, so we're back up and running.  Thanks for your patience!

Hey all. If you listen to the cast, you know that myself (Todd) and frequent guest-host/AP guy Tom are putting out an AW-based fantasy game called The Sword, The Crown, and The Unspeakable Power. We're pushing it towards release (hopefully this summer!) and our friends over at I Podcast Magic Missile are doing an AP of it. Here's the first episode. Enjoy!

Excellent! I had to piece the acronym together to figure out that this is actually the thing better known as SCUP. Looking forward to hearing how it goes.

Do you want to Jank on Demand, but live nowhere near Chicago? Well have we got an idea for you! Chicago ex-pats Todd and Charles are organizing a G+ version of JoD at the same time the regular JoD is going on so people can play online, wherever they are. That's 2:00 Chicago time on the 22nd of March, so make sure you do the math to figure out when that is for you. If you're interested, click "join" and we'll get you the details as the date approaches. If you have something you'd like to run or play, that's fine, post it here and we'll see what we can do.
