In The Lair of the Ginger Giant: Double, Double Podcast Trouble

Two, count 'em, TWO podcasts.

In episode Five we talk about the Ginger Giant's time at CONvergence and his time playing Pathfinder and the inspirations he got from attending various panels and how we might apply them to our games.

As I'm prepping to run a Godless mini-campaign, I wanted to have a good post-apocalyptic name table to draw from. The Apocalypse World...
