69: Pugmire, Part One

Today, we talk with Onyx Path impressario, Eddy Webb about his apocalyptically successful Kickstarter for the Pugmire role-playing game. Hear why a game about uplifted dogs in a post-human world will make you want to pick up two D20s, and kick badger-butt.

Like co-host Brad? Well he needs a kidney! Come to the benefit for Brad this weekend! Ben will be running a Dracula Dossier session. Learn more here!


Recorded as always at Rainbird Studios in scenic Big Bend, Wisconsin.

Thanks to producer Chris Koterba and 50 Breaks for the theme music.
