    Yo gals and guys. Enjoyed the show, as usual. As for free rpg day, my daughter and I made the drives up to That Game Place in Lemoyne,PA to play some GHR. We had a blast.

    Concerning sandboxed…My current d&d 5e campaign was originally set up as a small sandbox where I solicited location and plot ideas from the players beforehand. Unfortunately, the game has kind of petered out due the dreaded REAL LIFE ADULT CRAP. Why oh why did I actually want to be a grown up?

    And a big thanx to you all for the loot. I ended up getting some old basic d&d gazateer that might help with a campaign idea I have brewing.

    Anyway, keep up the good work and I look forward to the next episode.

    I personally find that setting-less and rules-lighter games like Fate and Savage Worlds are easier to sandbox in. Places and people are easy to make up on the fly, especially with the help of Story Cubes.

    Anyway just want to say, great show! I’ve just stumbled on this podcast recently and have been quickly catching up. Love the style of 1d4(+2) podcasts, hope to hear from you more often!
