In Episode 18 the D6G crew puts on their brown coats and discuss the Serenity RPG in detail, after giving an overview of the concept of Role Playing Games for folks who've never had the pleasure of trying them.

But that's not all.  We also get to interview Jamie Chambers, of Margaret Weis Productions (yes, the Margaret Weis from Dragonlance).  Jamie designed the Serenity RPG, and developed their upcoming Cortex game system, the same system used for their Battlestar Galactica RPG.  We have a nice long chat with Jamie about how he got involed in the industry, what it's like to design these games, and what future products are coming out.

In Episode 14 the D6G team gets into the details of Gen Con Indy 2008. We delve into the nature of the con with questions like "Which vendors had the strongest presence?" and "Were certain types of games on the rise or decline?"

But the best part of this super long episode, we think, is the extensive (over an hour) interview with Matt Wilson, the man behind Privateer Press. We feel this is a must listen for all gamers, regardless of game system, as Matt goes through his history in the game industry, and how he went from game idea to game production, and all the bumps in the middle.
