Episode 084: Black Crusade w/ Ross Watson & Sam Stewart

Ross Watson makes his return to the show, and this time he has back-up in fellow designer, Sam Stewart, who joins us for the first time. These fine gentlemen present Fantasy Flight Games' latest Warhammer 40,000 RPG, Black Crusade. Soon to be released at GenCon, this fourth game in the trilogy allows roleplayers to craft a campaign from the perspective of Chaos.

We did have some sound issues, stemming from rain thrashing the metal roof at FFG HQ. But it's worth the listen if you have any interest in Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe!

By the way, you still have through June 30th to take the RPG Podcasts survey!

Vigilance Press currently supports Bash, d20, Icons, Mutants & Masterminds, Mutant Future, OSRIC, and True20. We spoke at length about Chuck's two recent projects, The Usher Dossiers and Nuclear Sunset.

We finally return from our hiatus to bring our listeners up to speed and discuss a crazy, gamer-related idea Veronica and her sister Cat have. They've put together a Pampered Chef party for RPG enthusiasts. Sound fun? It should. We also talked about some upcoming guests, our friends at the Pulp Gamer Media Network, and this year's RPGPodcasts.com listener survey. We even mentioned our friends at Wombatcast.com. Oh, and Ron may have poked fun at Tucson and its inhabitants once or twice. But Tucsonans are such good folks, they'll be fine with it... right?
