I finally sat down and tried to track down and print out everything you listed from your GM's notebook. I discovered that Dragon issue 184 with the "7 Sentence NPC" article appears to be available for order from Paizo at:
http://paizo.com/dragon/products/issues/1992/184
I haven't ordered the issue yet (can't decide if it's worth $15 for the one article), so I don't know for sure that it's available.

Also, many of the links seem to have spurious characters at the end which are making the appear to be broken. When those characters are removed, however, the links work fine.

Game on!

Wow, that's a lot of show notes. That'll keep me busy for a while.

Glad you're back. Thankfully I'm lazy about culling feeds from my podcatcher.

There was a cracked article not too long ago entitled "The 6 Most Insane Moral Panics in History." Number #3 was D&D.

http://www.cracked.com/article_17040_p2.html

I've posted the URL of page 2 in case you're not inclined to dig. D&D is right there at the top.

I was at the ComicCon this year in NY and saw the 221 Films booth which featured The Assemblage of the Crystal Sphere: A D&D Story movie. It looked pretty funny it may be worth a shot to check out.

Hi,
I wanted to say that I'm enjoying the show. I think you have hit a niche that was not being addressed previously - rpg's and kids. As a father and gamer I was glad to find the escapistcast and subsequently DragonKin.
What's the word on Meddling Kids? The home site is apparently broken and I would really like to get a copy of this game. Also, can you give mor infromation on Teenagers From Space? Looking forward to the contests too.
Thanks,
tomg

2008-06-06T09:48:00.000-07:00

I think it was in Episode 3 where you said something like, "We need a Narnia RPG." Some time ago, somebody took a stab (a poke, really) at a Narnia True20 setting. Also, Amazon.de has a listing for a German Narnia: Das Rollenspiel.

Also, with regard to LARPing in education, check out Barnard College's "Reacting to the Past" program if you're not aware of it. The program teaches history through LARP-style simulations at over 40 USA colleges and universities. I attended a "Reacting" conference in April and plan to adapt the technique for my own discipline this fall.

Hi,
this was a good podcast. I especially enjoy hearing what is in the news regarding rpg's. The tips are welcome too. Except the Stolze links appear to be broken.
I'm looking forward to see how the Kids and RPG's thing goes. I have 3 and would like to see them eventually do some gaming too.
