Splatbook 17 – In SPAAAACE!
As of this show we have rechristened our episodes “splatbooks” for that gooey 2E taste.
This week the Boys With The Hammer (DMs Glen, Brian, and Cory) discuss the Optional 50-Point Damage Rule, Argue over Screen or No Screen, examine (from a distance) Cursed Weapons, review the World Builder’s Guide and ponder over taking PCs into Strange Environments.
