    * Main Topic (10:57) – Kickstarter is full of Indie TTRPG projects, and those are dominated by ones that are compatible with D&D 5e. We discuss this trend towards D&D homogeny.

    * Video Game News (26:12) – “Guild Wars 2” is an MMORPG that has been operating for many years, mostly in the shadow of other games in the genre. But it is actually doing better than many of those games. Let’s discuss this.
