Hobby Update 29/07/18: One Construct and His Blade

We're back up north, having spent a couple of weeks visiting family, buying a new car, seeing friends and generally chilling in the Central Belt.  It's always nice to go off somewhere, but I like coming home. On Wednesday, I headed down to Lybster for one of my D&D groups.  We've been using the Portland… Continue reading Hobby Update 29/07/18: One Construct and His Blade

In some cases, such as Forgotten Realms… Continue reading The Problem with Evolving Settings

No Rerolls Radio, Episode 4: Worlds of Darkness, Old Versus New

Episode 4 features a discussion about White Wolf's World of Darkness games. Specifically, whether we prefer the old or the new editions. We discuss broad themes, metaplot and take a significant detour into religion. We also seem to be getting to grips with some of our sound-demons, and we seem to have sorted out the echo problem. Sound levels from hosts are still a little uneven, though. If you have anything to add, feel free to do so in the comments below! We're also open to suggestions for topics of future shows.
