Welcome to Natural Geekery, a weekly podcast about being in love with gaming, roleplaying, interaction, and creativity. We are currently running an Actual Play called Wild is Plus! where two friends play a roleplaying game without a GM!

    Season 2 Finale - Wild is Plus #26 Endings and Beginnings

    Season 2 Finale - Wild is Plus #26 Endings and Beginnings

    Finally!  After a break that ended up being much longer than anticipated, the show is back.  I talk briefly about what's been happening and then we dive into the finale of our experiment of playing a tabletop RPG with no gamemaster, Wild is Plus!

    Ludyn and Hazzo have explored the dragon temple ruins and realize that with the books they now carry, they have more than enough information to head back to Drachen Falls.  Now, they must begin the journey back home.  What awaits them along the way?
