This week James takes on a new listener question: When my players come up with what seems like a reasonable bargain or deal, my antagonists accept, as long as they’re not giving up more than they originally intended to. The greatest play experiences I’ve had came from GMs who created hardline antagonists who would accept nothing less than total acceptance of their demands. Overcoming them gave me a thrill that I want to give my players, but whenever I try to run these guys, my senses of fairness and logic kick in and I accept a reasonable solution.
Kids, I hope you have your cereal ready because game designer Mike Olsen is about to kick off Fate month by introducing us to his setting for the Atomic Robo rpg: ROBO FORCE!

The Spirit Snatchers finally make it inside Boeing head quarters where they find it is perhaps a little more haunted than they anticipated. Will thier steam based equipment win the day? Or do they not have the ghost of a chance.
Plenty of OD&D concepts have fallen out of favor. Most of them died out because they put limitations on play. These days swords and sorcery systems are way less restrictive and f20 games are focused on customization. However, 5th edition D&D opted to keep alignment- which has some gamers scratching their heads.
Have you seen something you… can’t explain? Did you witness something… beyond explanation? Did something you beheld… defy explanation? You need to call Mark Summers (Alex Manich), Dillon Crackbacker (James Dugan), and Felix “Flex” Cockhammer (JPC)- the Spirit Snatchers!
Vlad Dracula finally makes an appearance in this last entry in our Dracula Dossier series.Unfortunately only two agents happen to be around.Will this be the end of our intrepid hunters, or will they introduce him to two barrels of Christ’s peacemaker?
Things are quiet on the Danube, too quiet. While our operatives are unraveling the tangled clues leading to Dracula a thick fog rolls in to surround the party boat. It’s probably nothing though.
