    Editor - Scarr
    This week, the party come clean about our dark secret. Sometimes, we don’t use....all of the rules.
    Show notes:
    01:00: Whoops, dating our recording a little.
    01;59: Savage is clearly a fan of the New Normal.
    03:11: That would be Pathfinder, dear listeners, if you weren’t aware.
    03:38: Apparently there was still ice in someone’s glass at this point.
    06:40: WARNING – A lot of nice things are said about D&D 4th Edition in this segment.
    08:06: Whippersnappers don’t appreciate nuthin’ in its time!
    09:30: As seen here - https://theadventuringparty.libsyn.com/cha-june-2020-wedbedbehead-monster-edition
    11:20: I am a very greedy man, shamelessly consuming spotlight time.
    11:49: When has we ever shyed away from pointlessly repeating ourselves before?
    12:50: Jack London, early 20th century novelist who wrote 'The Call Of The Wild'.
    13:42: XP For Gold, a much maligned mechanic of Basic and Advanced 1e D&D, but one which has gained a lot of fans in the OSR.
    14:30: Modern mechanics to get that old-school feel without the fiddley parts: Usage Dice and Slot-Based Inventory.
    19:20: Most GMs have suffered through the ‘I have 500 of the inconsequential item on my person at all times!’ argument a few times.
    21:30: Pellucidar, mysterious land at the Earth Core, and absolutely nothing to do with John Carter's Mars, which is what I was actually trying to reference.
    27:45: https://theadventuringparty.libsyn.com/prep-july-2019-downtimes
    29:55: Are we making our characters assuming they’ll be adventuring in infinite white featureless expanses?
    32:49: Hah!
    39:15: We Are Not Improving.
