#12 A Backpack of Holding

In this episode, Morrus and Peter have a rambling chat about their own RPG history and experiences. Plus, they do more SCIENCE! Malach the Maleficent returns with his after-action interview after his attempt at world domination, and we cover all the latest news, including new D&D minis, a new edition of Savage Worlds, Rick and Morty playing D&D, and a surprising mathematical reveal about what is actually statistically important in a D&D combat!

If you’ve ever wondered how to pronounce “Mordenkainen” or wanted to be surprised how “Sigil” is properly said, Morrus and Peter delve into mythology, etymology, and the word of the creators themselves to figure out how to pronounce the more unusual words and phrases from Dungeons & Dragons. Also, news about Judge Dredd and the Worlds of 2000AD, the Dune roleplaying game, Magic: The Gathering sourcebooks for Dungeons & Dragons, Our Favorite Game in All the World, contest winners from last week, and a lot more!

In this week's episode, we weigh some D&D books in order to scientifically calculate the page count of the upcoming Ravnica setting book for D&D. Talking of which, we discuss the new setting, along with rumours of Eberron's return. Note that this podcast was recorded shortly before those settings were announced on July 23rd, yet is remarkably accurate. We also cover the latest news and play our favourite game in all the world.
