Sam Zitin joins us in the third chair!  Sam has been running youth groups in his community very successfully for some time now. We catch up with Sam and ask him how he got into it and what he looks for in games to work in that environment.

Norbert Brunhuber, a man who has run more Warmachine and Hordes organized play than I care to think about, is back in the third chair!  And of course the topic on all of our minds...the latest edition of Warmachine & Hordes from Privateer Press.  aka "Mark 3"

Up first, we chat with Norbert about the "Metagame" in the WM/Hordes community as mark 2 drew to a close and what kinds of things people hope to see from the game and the models with Mark 3.

Later we dive into the specific changes in Mark 3 in both game systems.  What did change? What has not? And how does the game feel now?

Ross Watson, RPG writer about town, is back in the third chair!

We catch up with Ross on his latest project, Savage Rifts: Adapting the classic Rifts RPG into the Savage Worlds system.  How did the Kickstarter end up? Where is the project now and what can we look forward to?

Later we dive into a DM'ing tips and tricks session when Russ tries to create a new term: "The Tactical Narrative."  What the heck is that and why should you try to make one as a game master?
