This special bonus episode features Emmy Allen running a one-shot of their new roleplaying game, Esoteric Enterprises, with Morrus playing the Criminal Hudson and Peter playing the Bodyguard Monty.
Editor’s Note: Character Creation runs until about 16 minutes (the scratching noise is them writing out their character sheets). If you want to jump straight to the action, it starts at 16:02 in the episode.
This week, Morrus and Peter take a look at the Rick and Morty Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set! In the news, Chaosium snags the license to Rivers of London series, a new D&D charity release, Pathfinder Kingmaker video game getting a sequel, a new live stream to replace Dice Camera Action, and more! Plus a dog plays D&D for the first time in a brand new sketch!
