RPG Logic podcast

RPG Logic is a podcast intended to help run role playing games. We record sessions of a roleplaying game and break it up into scenes after listening to the scene, we discuss the game mastering and playing choices. Discuss what went well, what failed, and what could be done differently next time. An emphasis is placed on the choices that are made by the gamemaster and players for both running the game at the table and for preparing games.
