If you're unfamiliar with the +Gameable Disney podcast, you REALLY need to start listening to them.
 
We've got a PAIR of special guests this week: Kris and Katrina from the Gameable Pixar Podcast! We just finished up a crossover episode with them on The Prince of Egypt. They joined us in this episode to talk about the larger issue of breaking canon, especially canonical settings players are heavily invested in.

Once you're done with this episode, go give the Gameable Pixar Podcast a listen - their whole backlog of episodes about Pixar and Disney movies (and many others) is excellent!

A friend of ours has been running our on-again, off-again Legend of the Five Rings campaign for a while now. He's also an awesome cross-stitcher. I got this in the mail today, and I can't wait to frame and hang it!

We did a crossover episode with our friends at the +Gameable Disney podcast. They did a two-part series on _The Prince of Egypt_​—and they brought us on for part two! Give the first part a listen, and pick up the second part tomorrow. Then, look for Kris & Katrina on our regular episode this Tuesday. #geektheology #rpg #movies

Did a cursory read through of City of Judas, mainly because I didn't want to appear to be endorsing something rather than just mentioning it.

Not overly impressed with it.  It's Apocalypse World Engine fantasy that's a bit darker in tone than Dungeon World, and set in a version of Earth.

The playbooks assume that you are affiliated with the Church of Judas and that while neither side is all good, the Church of Judas has as much if not a bit more moral grounding than the Church of Christ.

It seems as if the point of historical divergence here is that Judas didn't' kill himself, but lived and started an uprising against the Romans.

It's kind of an interesting premise, but it feels a bit to me like it's trying more to be edgy than having a whole lot of interesting philosophical context.  Interestingly, there seems to be little in the book talking about either church emerging from the Hebrew faith, which should especially be important for a Church of Judas, being that it would effectively be a militant branch of Judaism, barring details to the contrary.

I probably should have picked up on this sooner, but given that it is Apocalypse World, the playbooks are very much specific to the setting detailed, so that you could probably hack your own Apocalypse World game from scratch to play in the Old Testament era as easily as modifying City of Judas.

I'm not saying it's bad, but it seems to want to be a dark fantasy game set in an alternate history as much as it wants to actually deal with any real world connotations of the elements they are using, and that doesn't appeal much to me.

I'm doing a thing! A different thing! With different co-hosts!
 
More writing and gaming resources—this time, a new podcast I'm doing!

+Mike Perna of +InnRoads Ministries and I are collaborating on a new podcast for writers, gamers, and storytellers of all stripes: "The MacGuffin Factory". Very simply, we pick a macguffin—maybe a specific item, maybe a general category of items—and design plots and plot threads around them. The goal is to inspire ideas and give listeners that moment when they stop listening to the show because they've got their own story idea they're working on.
Those of you who were on the Small Press panel at Fear the Con 8 may remember that I mentioned this was in the works; well, it's finally here.

Give it a listen. We're doing this as a monthly show right now, but if interest picks up we may up our output.
Welcome to the very first episode of our new storytelling podcast! Once a month, we'll select a theme and provide a selection of interesting options for your various storytelling needs. Whether you...

Also, in reference to insulting existing canon, see also any Shane Black references to the Mandarin in Iron Man 3.

And here's part two of +Gameable Disney Podcast's review of The Prince of Egypt. As promised, this half features Grant and Peter joining Kris and Katrina for the discussion! We had a GREAT time with these two, and we covered a lot of very interesting and difficult ground.

Remember to keep an eye out for our regular Tuesday episode, which will feature Kris and Katrina crossing back over to Saving the Game!

I think this might be the best barber shop in Greer. Just got my hair cut here for the first time—I asked for a big change in my appearance and they did a great job. There was a bit of a long wait, but that was due entirely to how busy they seem to be on a Saturday; once my turn came up, I got a very professional haircut with due attention to detail and very little wasted time. The large number of customers ahead of me turned out to be a solid testament to their quality. Good price, great product, great experience. I'll definitely be back.

Fox's Pizza is very quick (I've never waited more than 15 minutes for a pickup order, and usually it's been waiting for me for a while by then.) I'm very fond of their cheese sticks, and their pizza is of very good quality. Their non-pizza offerings are also excellent, especially the stromboli. They've got a very friendly staff and are always polite on the phone -- rarer than you'd think, and worth appreciating. My only complaint, and it's not exactly a fair complaint so I'm not knocking a star off, is that Fox's IS a franchise, and as such it doesn't really have the flexibility to offer anything truly unique to that particular location. For what it is, though, you'd be hard-pressed to find better pizza anywhere in Greenville.

When my brother-in-law's florist failed to get anything together in time for his fiance's bridal portraits, we called Expressions Unlimited in a rush. They had a bouquet together in an hour - can't get better service than that.
