Narrative Control – Episode 21 – Drunk Game and Con Review

Hi and welcome back to Narrative Control. This episode we’re turning 21 and celebrating by getting a little drunk. The podcast is a long one (largely due to our inebriation) and it veers from our usual format. The first twenty minutes is a comical review of a d20 Module, The Pleasure Prison of the B’thuvian Demon Whore, which arguably couldn’t have been taken seriously even if we were sober. The rest of the show (almost an hour) is our recap of DundraCon 2009. We also welcome a new voice on the show, Josh Curtis, who tells us how to be an “Elite” game master.

Also… we’ve got the explicit tag on this one for a reason. You’ve been warned.

Hosts: Sean Nittner, Justin Evans, and Josh Curtis.

Length: 1:14:23
