Series 41.3 – Micro RPGs with Ourselves (Heartbeats and Post-Match Interview)

Welcome to the final episode of series 41, everyone! This series will be a bit different from our normal series. We will be covering two micro RPGs each episode with just Amelia and Ryan at the helm! This episode, we’re going in cold with character creation for Keith Baker and Jenn Ellis’s game Heartbeats and James Mendez Hodes’ game Post-Match Interview, both Micro RPGs from James D’Amato’s book, The Ultimate Micro-RPG Book! Then stick around for the outtakes at the end!
