This next set of interviews is our second two-parter of the season. In this first part, we talk about GURPS Basic Set 4 with Sean Punch. We discuss the ins and outs of the GURPS system, and how the system has changed and adapted over the number of years it has been around. Focusing on 4th edition, Sean offers us a lot to think about concerning role-playing games that offer such a comprehensive system to its players.

In this episode we learn more about the well-known title from White Wolf/CCP with line editor, Justin Achilli. We discuss Vampires' place in the history of the role-playing genre, the focus on story telling, and its popularity as a live action event. Ultimately, we end the interview leaving the listeners with probably the most important question to consider for the future of the franchise: do vampires use twitter? This was an immensely fun interview.

Vampire the Masquerade is coming out with a 20th anniversary edition. You can learn more about it here and here.

This episode is the second part of our fantastic interview with Vincent Baker regarding his latest RPG, Apocalypse World. We discuss items from the game like the countdown clock and the GMing style that the game asks of its players.

*For those who downloaded part 1 and are dissatisfied with the audio quality (technical difficulties with using Skype as a communication tool), I am reposting a new version that will hopefully clear up as much of the audio as possible. The new version should be up later tonight (Sunday May 1) or tomorrow (May 2).
