Famed Welsh storyteller Own Staton joins Craig and Russ this week in the third chair! Since we have a story teller we thought it might be fun to see what happens when you throw out a character concept and let him run wild creating an on-the-spot backstory. Join us as Russ grabs character key words from a variety of RPG systems and Craig and Owen try to create compelling backgrounds with no prep time!
Later it's time to dive into one of Russ's favorite finds at GenCon 2013: Level 7: Omega Protocol from Privateer Press. What makes this game so innovative? And is it really fair to call it "X-Com the board game?"
