  1. Great stuff – I was interested in Gumshoe Judge Dredd but the website doesnt seem to have any contact details. Does anyone know how to contact the author?

    1. Dirk says:

      Hi Nick – if you send me an email – I’ll forward it to Steve. Dirk.

  2. Stephen Richards says:

    Love the podcast. Will you be looking at any of the Powered by the apocalypse games in the future?

    1. Dirk says:

      I’d love to give Dungeon World a try. I enjoy listening to the Gauntlet podcast exploring the system, so I think we will look at it in the future.

  3. Stephen Richards says:

    I enjoy Dungeon world a lot. The class warfare supplement is worth checking out too, it allows for a ridiculous number of possible classes.
