Chris is joined by Keith who hasn't been on in a while and Anthony. 

 

Topics include in no particular order. 

Chris  GamerGate controversy... the kill or be killed conventions in gaming with heroes and when does that go over the line and the hero get his card yanked...

 

Chris  third what do you do when the game hits the elephant in the room with the cloaking device a sticky subject or a topic that upsets a player outright that the GM had no idea would be a trigger for that person how do you back up and reverse out of the sinkhole ? Retcon to be or not to be...

 

Anthony   how does a player choose/balance between the character they want to play vs. usefulness in the game.
 
We also took some questions from listeners, best way to get ahold of us is joining the kicked in the dicebags players edition facebook group. 
 
 
Jenny  How about advice on how to avoid getting the spotlight shoved on you? I'm currently in a game with players who are new to the idea of non-combat-centric RPGs, and they kind of rely on me too much to push the story along sometimes, and will occasionally view my character as a leader or a superior, when I am literally playing the new intern who doesn't know shit. How could someone, either as a player or a GM, encourage the newbies to step it up?

 

 Nathan Do you use the rule of cool, have you ever used story trumps rules, or does it have to be played/ran by the book?
 
 
 
back to a great start thanks for sticking with us!

 In this interview segment I( Chris Mais ) sit down with Shanna Germain, of Monte Cook Games, one of the co-creators and editor of the Strange and Numenera. And this original interview was chopped up but we got back together and took a second go at it and here it is.
