  1. Thieves World was one of my favourites when it first came out and when I started rebuilding my collection from (almost) scratch 10 years ago, it was one of the first purchases from eBay. Like the lads, back then I enjoyed reading it and poring over the maps more than actually planning to play it. So doubly pleased I got a place in the T&T game using the setting at Grogmeet19.

    I didn’t know Robert Asprin, who oversaw the original fiction collections, was a gamer.

  2. Dragonquest got mentioned a few times. I’d like to hear an episode on DQ – both that and Universe were RPGs I was interested in but never got to read or play.

    I still curse TSR for what they did to SPI.

  3. Great stuff, and thanks for the heads up about the ‘Grogtalk’ Daniel Collerton Irillian podcast. It was great, at last the story of its creation from the man himself. Recommended listening for Irillian fans, including spoken Irillian dialect and how to pronounce ‘daoine sidhe’.

  4. Hi Dirk, the link to this episode seems to have gone a bit weird – it’s linking to a comic instead.
