Episode #84: TABLE TOP FTW

The Winter Guard Campaign


NPCs mentioned in this Episode:


Bahamut

Bairwin

Oakley

Padraig

How many of us are lucky enough to play table top these days?



Whether it's because of work, living in different cities, family, or
other obligations... as we grow older, we're not all able to enjoy the
simple pleasure of getting together and spending a day doing this.



Except for today.



After months of non-committal suggestion and idealistic banter, we're
finally going to get together! One of our members is making the very
generous journey of joining us all the way from Whitby, Ontario, and we'll
try this abomination of maptools AND table top; at the same time!



See you on the other side...
